  1. Im installing a left hand rear brake on the drz and am not sure how long of a brake line i need. Its one of the duel fitting set ups that connect to the foot brake master. So from handle bars to foot brake master. Anyone has an idea or previous experience as to how long this brake line needs to be? Thanks

    300xc for ice riding

    How would the 300xc do for ice riding? I currently ride a wr250f, which is underpowered for ice riding. So looking for an upgrade. My riding is kind of a mix of everything. A bit of open fast trails, tight technical single track, mx, and ice riding. For the trails and mx it sounds like a great bike and a good option for being able to do both. I am only concerned about the ice riding as living in Canada its a good half of my season it seams. So want a bike that will handle it fine. I have ridden other 2 strokes while ice riding and they seam great. But that's always sticking to the ice courses. Staying on the ice track im not concerned at all, im more concerned when leaving the track and opening the bike wide open and flying down the lake. What kind of a bike is it when it comes to wide open throttle and max speed runs? Good, doable, bad for the bike? I guess this is more in general a 2 stroke question, as I have never owned one just ridden some friends for a short while. And when ridding these bikes I have never opened them up so not sure how they would handle. I know obviously a 450 4 stroke would be a better suited ice bike for wide open speed runs, but I am really liking the sounds of the 300xc when it comes to all other types of riding. So what's the 300xc's max sped, and does it get angry if you hold it there for long? Thanks

    Radial vs bias for supermoto

    For supermotos does radial vs bias tires make a difference? Not a race supermoto, just a commuter that see everything from highway speeds, dirt tracks, twisites, city streets, and wheelies. Does a radial vs bias tire have an affect on a bike such as a supermoto (drz400sm to be specific, cant see it making a difference though). If there is a difference it or big or noticeable? Thanks
  4. Oh really haha, by bad. I always thought hard tires had hard compound rubber, to wear better. And soft tires were soft compound to flex and grab better.
  5. I know you guys probably get very tired of people asking for what tires tires to get, so sorry but here i go anyways. Im pretty much looking for a do it all tire that will last. Not need to be replaced after several rides. I mostly ride trails and single track, with the occasional track day. The terrain where i live changes alot. When its dry out the trails are as hard pack as you can get. With alot of rocks, and sharp rocks. But the second it gets a bit wet it all just turns in to a sloppy mess. Thick, thin, slimy clay and mud. Its a nightmare. I was originally looking at some desert tires. Hard terrain tires with a harder compound to handle all the rocks, and not fall apart after a few rides. But i worry that desert tires wouldn't handle the mud very well? Then i was looking at softer tires that would handle the mud better, but being soft would get destroyed on the hard sharp rocks. So im kind of stuck?? What tire would be a good choice for me? Ones that don't excel in anything, but also doesn't suck in anything. Something that will last and not need to be replaced right away, but also not be useless when it gets wet and muddy. Tires that i can go from the hardest and rockiest of trails, to the muddiest of mud trails. A good do it all tire that will last and not chunk or wear down after a few rides (preferably last an entire season of weekend riding). Thanks
  6. Anyone have experience with both of the Atlas guards? Ive been waiting a long time to get the guardian to go with my brace, but am starting to look at the defender again. How much coverage and protection does the defender provide? I like the guardian because of the shoulders but am not so sure about the foam protection instead of hard plastic. I dont really know. Pretty much just looking for opinions on both, Thanks

    Braking in dirtbike tires

    Yes that is correct. Haha lets just say i learned about that the hard way on my supermoto. Didn't make it around the first corner without nearly sliding out! Took a ride or two to wear it off.
  8. Haha probably sounds like a very dumb question, but is there any sort of braking in of ditbike tires as there is with street bike tires? Or are they as good as there going to be brand new? Thanks
  9. Although originally designed for stunt riders, it sound like more and more people are starting to use these clutch levers for dirt. Anyone here have one setup on the bike? If so how do you like it? My bike has a brutal clutch pull and am looking at getting one to make it better. Are they really that much better? From the reviews it sounds like they are pretty nice! Thanks
  10. Mine didn't come with the smaller spark arrestor screen. It came with the quiet core, which just reduced the size of the hole at the end. And the spark arrestor with quiet core. I need the spark arrestor however. Was looking at buying just the smaller screen spark arrestor without the quiet core, but wanted to ask here first to see if it makes any difference at all.
  11. Is there any power differences for an fmf 4.1 with the quiet core/spark arrest, vs without these? Or is it just sound difference? After installing the exhaust i started the bike without these inserts installed, and it sounded really good. Didn't get to ride with it like this however. Then i put the spark arrestor in. And it still sounded good but didn't have the same feel to it (just from the sounds). Is this just purely a sounds difference, or is there any power difference between the two (insert in vs no insert). Obviously due to physics there is a power difference. You cant reduce sounds without reducing power output. But is it in any way noticeable, or so small that you wouldn't be able to tell the difference other than the sound. Also this was on a 2009 wr250f with a fmf mega bomb, but i don't believe this topic is much bike related so i posted it here. Thanks
  12. Ice riding this season i bent my exhaust in half. So time to get a new one. I originally had the fmf 4.1 with mega bomb. It felt great. I was wondering what is the difference between the 4.1 and ti-powercore is. Either one would be paired up with the mega bomb. Why is the 4.1 more expensive? Does it have any extra performance over the ti, or just lighter. Im not concerned about weight or sounds. Just the performance out of it. Also im pretty set on getting an fmf so not looking for other pipe recomendations Thanks

    Dr.D ns-4 wr250f

    Anyone have this exhaust for there wr250f? If so how do you like it? What are your opinions on this pipe? This vs fmf? After folding my fmf in half over the winter i am in search of a new exhaust and came across one of these for a 2014 yz250f. Would this fit a 2009 wr250f? Would it fit fit the fmf mega bomb? Thanks

    Supermoto tires in dirt

    Obviously street supermoto tires will never be good in the dirt. But i still enjoy riding with them in the dirt. I was wondering if i should be changing the tire psi for dirt riding. Will this make them preform any better than they do a street levels? What psi would be a good level to increase there performance in dirt? Thanks

    drz400sm FMF Q2 vs....

    I currently have a FMF Q2 exhaust with power bomb. This is the setup i got the bike with so i have nothing to compare it to. How is this setup? How is it compared to other setups? This setup vs stock? This setup vs say a power core 4? Sound and power wise. Mostly just curious! Thanks
