    James Stewart+Crashes+Concussions=ADD or ADHD

    Truth is NOT one of us probably know the whole situation we just know what is being said by media and so on. I think James is good for the sport i do not in any way think that using drugs to help you do better is ok. So what is the difference in a person drinking 2 redbulls before a race that has enough caffine in it to explode your heart and taking a LEGAL drug that is being used for some medical condition that is perscribe to him. If that is cheating i think redbull and Monster should be looked at also. Another point we have all seen it when a racer has a bad spill on the track and break a finger or bone in their hand...do they get any pain meds so that they can finish the day of racing? Probably, is that cheating?

    Compression question

    I just rebuilt my 2011 ktm 250xc it had 148psi compression and the only reason i rebuilt it was because it seemed really week on power compared to a friends exact same bike...I put a new piston and rigs in it now it has around 190ish and runs totally different. I wouldn't just ring your bike i would put a piston in also just for good measures.

    2011 250xc 2stroke (power loss) Reasons? Help..

    The power is weak on lowend...It has what appears to be the green spring in it and i unscrewed the power valve adjuster to where its flush(going to ride tomorrow to see how it does). I'm going to check the silencer next I guess. I'm going to check the compression what should it be before being rebuilt?

    2011 250xc 2stroke (power loss) Reasons? Help..

    My power valve is adjusted all the way in..(does that make the hit softer? going to check the spring color today hopefully) Pipe is a works FMF pipe and silencer my gearing is a 13/48 his is a 14/50. IF the X dimension is wrong will the compression be low? Is the X dimension the gap between head and piston or have to do with the base gasket thickness? *thanks for the time and help
  9. I just bought a 2011 250xc upgrading from a 09 300xcw. I rode the bike seemed to run pretty good from what I could tell on the area I had to ride it. However when riding it is seems really weak compared to my friends 2011 250xc. I was told it had a fresh rebuild heres the things that im thinking... 1. low on compression.... The bike seems to have good compression and starts really good... need to check (what would be good?) 2. different gearing... My bike has a 13/48 my friends bike that im comparing my bike to has a 13/50 3. power valve spring and timing... need to check Guys that about all I know to do has anyone else had these issues or can think of anything im missing?? Let me know what you all think... Thanks for the help.

    KDUB! 200th!

    I have talked to KDUB one on one and he's seems so down to earth and seems to really like talking to his fans....Just a nice person fame really hasn't changed him I don't think.

    Used KTMs? We're are they?

    well I hate to say it but I really got tired of looking for at 250-300xc-xcw so I bought an 07 yz 250 set up decent for woods so I'll have something to ride until I find what i want.
