  1. So I usually dont keep bikes long but I swear I cant make up my mind anymore what to buy. How often or not does everyone get a new bike. And do you stick with your brand u like or? The shootouts mess me all up also. I've had everything except a ktm and mainly older bikes. Usually what drives me is money. I hate spending alot of money on something I can find for 3 grand less online.
  2. I know it's bad but I've never changed tires or picked any out for that matter. Been riding 29 years. Anyway I ride 1 track, and dont ever go anywhere else and it's not a deep sandy track but its definitely sandy not dirt. When its wet it does turn into a thick mud which I dont u stand how cause its sand but anyway. What tires should I get? I see some pretty sick looking sand tires but idk how they ride, feel etc. Theres a ton of jumps on the track an most jump faces, are pretty solid, not sandy. Like packed hard sand. The straights an everything else other than the jump faces is similar to a beach with a hard base. Should I get the sand tires or? Again I have no idea.

    Knee pads/protection

    I saw a video of alex Hodges getting ready to ride and he put on like a spandex type sock that went like thigh high then he put knee braces on. They weren't bulky. My question is what are these called where to I get them an what's a good non bulky knee brace. I'm assuming your socks go over the spandex layer. Thoughts?

    Carb question

    2010 kx 250f. My copper looking swiveling gas line connection point on the carb started leaking today. Is this replaceable?

    2010 kx 250f issue

    Cold starting I have to whack the throttle alot as I'm kicking. It's like no gas gets squirted in. Idk. So I whack the throttle 5-8 times as I'm kicking. I know your not suppose to hit the throttle cause it squirts fuel an gives it to much gas. But yeah that's how I get it started. Yeah I remember o no I'm gonna eat it. It's happened maybe 5 times total in 3 months. I'll be cruising in 3rd avout to hit something an half throttle I get nothing but a small sputter. I did notice I didnt tighten the clamp around the boot. Which could definitely be that problem I'm assuming. I choke it. An I find tdc an kick thru a few times before I really try to start it

    2010 kx 250f issue

    Well I finally got around to checking the valves hopefully yall can advise me what u think. So all valves were in spec. .15 .13 intake an exhaust .18 an .19mm. So I changed the plug, cleaned the pilot jet an main an blew compressed air thru the carb. Any ideas? Last weekend it was 10 to 15 kicks to start, then first kick the rest of the day. I did notice I got a little bit of total loss of power hitting a couple jumps. Maybe twice. Never does that though.

    2010 kx250f tight valves?

    Idk, I bought the bike as a fixer and it kinda just became my own. The valves didnt look to bad but. I'm not a pro at this stuff by any means. I've shimmied them once or twice since I've owned it. Couple years now. Wheres a good place to send the head if that's what's wrong, or should I shim one more time and if it gets tight again then I know what's up or?

    2010 kx 250f issue

    Can someone steer me in the right direction here? I put a new top end in recently, maybe 5 plus rides since. Before I put it in and now after it takes like 10 15 kicks to start then starts first kick all day while riding. I adjusted the valves when I did the top end. I'm afraid my valves are at the point of no adjustment. Idk. Should I adjust them again and it the problem continues have the head done? I have not cleaned the carb at all. And I have hot cams.
