    Clutch Whilst Cornering

    You want to carry as much momentum as you possibly can, so i would suggest always choosing a higher gear so as not to lose momentum while corning. Also using the clutch and not having power go to the rear wheel will cause you to lose some of your control over the bike, you want power being put on the groud as much as possible so i would suggest not using your clutch before corning unless you are shifting or braking very hard. If you are having to brake hard before a turn then using the clutch will keep you from stalling, but this is not an ideal situation, you perferably want to use the brkaes as little as possible because like i said before momentum is key! What type of riding are you doing, Motocross or trail? Depending on which one you are doing i might be able to give a few more tips!
  4. I am at a complete loss for what to do here guys! Recently while at a race i had a check engine light come up on my 2017 yz250fx, it blinks twice slowly and then twice quickly. I dont have the owners manual to know what that means and for some reason can not get it online, so can y'all maybe tell me what it means or what i should do?

    YZ250FX motocross?

    Makes a huge difference. I’ve always rode 250’s So it may just be me not knowing how to handle the extra power but I can barely keep the front wheel down. It just was pretty mellow without it.

    2018 YZ250fx Maps

    Do you mean where the maping system is? Because it should be right in front of the gas tank on the frame. Just a little black clip.

    YZ250FX motocross?

    Hi, I own a 2017 YZ250FX and recently have been interested in getting into motocross racing. I really don’t want to buy a new bike but I’ve heard that it’s hard to be competitive in motocross with an FX. So is there anything I can do to make the FX a competitive motocross racer. I already have a big bore 270 kit, titianium FMF exhaust slip on, and an aftermarket suspension set up.
