  1. I have read recently that some are running the Gas Gas 300 piston with good sucess.
  2. Thanks for the posts. I like the idea of trying my street helmet to get an idea of what it may be like. I follow my wife and kids most of the time so I do eat a lot of dirt.
  3. I was looking at some new helmets and the dual sport helmets with the face shield looked interesting. Has anyone used the dual sport type helmet for full time dirt biking? What are the pros and cons? The only thing I could see being a problem would be the dust sticking to the shield and having to wipe it off often. We only trial ride as a family so getting roosted is not usually to much of a problem. Thanks, Jim
  4. My 14yr son has grown enough that I am giving him my 2008 200xc-w, and I am looking for a new ride. I am trying to decide between the 250 and the 300 xc-w. It would be nice if we could test ride bikes like you can cars to see what you would like better. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I don't race, only trail ride in the mountains and occasionally the dunes.
  5. Sold, thanks
  6. Yes, that is right. Sorry about any confusion on the triple clamp part. It will only fit the 150f. The shock linkage will fit both the 150f or 230f.
  7. I selling BBR triple clamp-black, and the billet linkage. It was on my wife's crf150f for 2-3 rides and she decided she didn't want the bike anymore. They raise the bike about 1 in front and rear, and fits the 150f or 230f. The triple clamp goes for $229.95 and the linkage for $149.95, I would take $200.00 for both. Shipping to your address would be additional. I also have the 2007 CRF150f for sale if anyone is interested.
  8. Thanks for the information.
  9. My buddy has a 2002 300exc that has a bad rear wheel hub. I have found one off of an 2004. Will it fit?
  10. I like the idea of rejetting the kx and running the same ratio for both.
  11. Thanks for all of the posts. I ended up buying the bike Friday afternoon, but have been working this weekend so have not had time to take it up in the Mountains. I rode it for about 15min while looking at buying it. It feels super light! It vibrates more than I expected but I will get used to it. I am almost considering keeping the WR for a while and see if I don't like it better in the wide open areas that we sometimes ride...like Moab, or Juniper Dunes here in WA. We do a lot of riding up in the woods here in the Blues out of Walla Walla. I am looking forward to putting some time on it this week. Just a quick question, it is probably already covered somewhere. The guy I bought it from said fuel/oil 60:1? My son's KX 100 is recommended 32:1. Am I going to have to carry three cans? My gas, His gas, and the girls gas?
  12. I am going to ride it. At this point I am willing to trade the power of the 450 for the light weight of the 200. It's funny how most of us tend to look down on 200cc 2t now days. I can remember 20+ yrs ago the KDX 200 was being ridden and raced with great success.
  13. Thanks for all of the input guys, I can tell I am going to like posting on the KTM forum. I am 5'10" and about 185 lbs. 41yr. Pleasure riding only, never raced and don't want to start. I just want a light bike that has enough power to get me in trouble if I want to:ride:
  14. Thanks for the information. I like the idea of riding a bike with great power to weight ratio. I have been wondering if maybe I should go for the 250 or 300, but they seem to be about 20 lbs heavier.
  15. Right, the wet wt. on the WR450f is listed as 272 lbs, the dry wt on the 200 xc-w is listed at 208 lbs, I have not seen a wet wt listed anywhere for the 200. Anyone know what it is?
