  1. Your eyes are one of the most important parts of your body, you really don't wanna skimp out on them. 100$ for top of the line goggles is really not that much. If you can afford 30$, save some more. We're talking about eyes, you can't do ANYTHING without them. See it as an investment.
  2. Sorry for necro but did you solve the issue? I have the same problem
  3. Just wanted to chime in. I had terrible arm-pump, 2 laps max before I couldn't feel my arms. 2 months later and I've yet to experience it again. What I did was get rid of my long sleeved thermal shirt, swap the full chest protector with elbow protection to a more lightweight and unobstructive one without arm sleeves, and most importantly find good fitting gloves. I went through 3 pairs in one month until I was satisfied. The Fox Airlines are working wonderfully. Now I'm able to ride harder and longer and when I pull off it's because I'm tired and not for arm pump. Oh and of course suspension, it has to be set up for you. But don't worry either way it will get better with seat time! Good luck!
  4. Oakley Airbrake or Dragon NFX/2/s if you want the best protection, as they have molded lenses. The Dragon is also safety certified
  5. Hm yeah I guess that's what I'm going for. Well, that's what I do, but as I said, that's very slow. I tried a 2017 kx250f multiple times and I don't like it at all honestly. I guess I'll have to get comfortable with revving. I don't like the sound it makes, it just seems like the engine will break at any moment, and the throttle is so snappy. I'll try using ear plugs and see if I notice it less. Thanks for the replies.
  6. Hello. I have a Ktm 125. I realize this sounds stupid, but I'm kinda scared of high-rpms. I tend to chop the throttle on jumps faces because the power is too instant and I'm scared of the slighest turn of the throttle. I'm far more comfortable just strolling in high gears, but that's far slower. I currently run 13/51, could a gearing change help a little?
  7. Hello. I have a KTM EXC 125 (18" rim), and I was wondering if I should mount a 120/80 tire or a 120/90. I know that a 110 would be better, but it isn't omologated for my bike so those are my only choices. Same thing for the front, should I go with a 80/100 or 90/90? Will mainly use it for MX but for some enduro as well. Sorry for the newbie question
