  1. I'm 42 and in my opinion the 250 is the way to go while learning. BLUF: If you're not comfortable and having fun on the bike at this age, don't waste any more time riding it. If you are trying to change yourself to fit the bike, you'll never get there. All you'll do is waste money on things you don't need. Time is short and we're not getting any younger. Opinions are free, hospital bills are not.
  2. I'm no expert, but the plug looks a tad bit rich. This is a long shot, but I had a similar problem with an 04 CRF450. It turned out that the tiny o-ring on the pilot screw had split. It was murder to cold start, but fired right up hot. It took a complete carb disassembly to find the problem.
  3. Anyone have any feedback on a megabomb (or similar) headpipe as a permanent fix? I never realized the hassles it is to race/ride in Europe (affiliations, inspections, endless rules, etc.). I think this is a precursor for things to come stateside. If it is, get ready for some painful days ahead folks. I guess it is worth it to maintain our ability to progress as a sport.
  4. The exhaust is new and doesn't need a repack. The Q4 has a spark arrestor installed. Any other ideas?
  5. Looking for information on a "quick" way to reduce 2db for an 08 CRF450R. I'm stationed in Germany and must pass the 94db test in order to race. I've put the FMF Q4 exhaust on with the stock header. It currently registers at 96.6 db on a 2-meter test at 5000 rpm. I need to pass the db test within 14 days so mail order of parts is out; although any suggestions for a permanent fix will be appreciated. Anyway, does anyone have a quick fix to my problem without sacrificing power? Thanks in advance!
  6. The link to the post explains a lot. How do you determine the shim stack for your individual size and riding style?
  7. $6500 OTD in NM.
  8. I have an 08 and get beat to death with the forks. I'm thinking about sending mine out for a revalve.
  9. I am curious as to how hard it actually is to revalve a fork? I would like to revalve the forks on a 08 CRF450R. I weigh 180 and ride top ten in the C class. Any advice Can the average guy do it themselves? What tools are needed and where can you get the parts?
  10. Anyone out there?
  11. The 150 will smoke the 230!
  12. I have the 08 Honda and my friend has the 08 Kawi. Mine pulls better throughout the whole throttle, but his has a plusher suspension. It's just a matter of preference.
  13. Maybe you TT fans can help me out. Here's what I'm running on my 04 CRF70 88cc Kit 13T Front/Stock Rear Uni Pod 1" Pit Bike Exhaust 20mm Sheng Wey Carb or 24mm Mikuni Carb (both with jet kits) The bike falls hard (and will die if you hold it) if you blip the throttle from idle with both carbs, could it be something else? The bike runs worse with the 24mm Mikuni? Also, the 1" Pipe/Muffler is way too loud. Any suggestions on a pipe that is not so loud. Also, any suggestions on jets for the 24mm Mikuni?
  14. I had two bikes stolen from my trailer on 14 June 2007 in Columbia, SC. First is a 2004 Honda CRF450R. The bike has most of a hot wheels graphics kit on it, except for the shrouds which are stock. It has #24 on the panels. VIN: JH2PE05374M200768. Second is a stock 2001 Honda XR200R. VIN: JH2ME05001K502564. I will pay a reward if recovered or the theives are identified for some payback. 803-348-5093.
