  1. Thanks for the reply. Love hearing that it's a monster in the midrange! Torque can be intoxicating!
  2. Tell us more about the Zero? Was the throttle on/off like a light switch or progressive? Could you get used to the motor ? Did it handle well?
  3. I have 2300 miles on my 2016. Quite smooth for a thumper - about the same vibes as my vstrom 650 and my FJ-09. Strong motor and handles so much better in the twisties than any bike I have owned including my street triple.
  4. I have ridden the'16 duke and it is quite smooth with very few vibes. Looking to add one to the stable soon.
  5. Wow, no one has done this mod?? I think this would be alot of fun on my YZ155.
  6. what about Honda plates make them the recommedation? Are they thicker? More durable?
  7. The springs are installed and i went for the 1st ride. The front is wonderful and compliant. The rear is a HUGE difference - so smooth and plush. I still can't quite get the full 4 inches of sag with the 4.8 rear spring - i am at 3.75 and the bike is a little twichy at speed, but not too bad.
  8. could you elborate on what you mean by the "main clutch" being installed the right way up? i will be putting the Rekluse pro in my '06 rm250.
  9. i have an Eric Gorr '05 YZ155. Wow it is really a great woods bike - light flickable and enough power down low. The power is no where near the power of my '06 RM250, but it is just enough that i am much faster through the woods on the YZ155. I am also thinking of putting in a Rekluse Pro for the really gnarley sections.
  10. I noticed on the rekluse web site that the rekluse pro on will work on the YZ125 using the YZ125 Add-on Kit (order RMS871 and RMS258). Has anyone used it? Any ride reports?
  11. i went ahead and ordered .40 on the front and a 4.8 on the rear. I'll report back my results.
  12. thanks for the response. This does bring up a question - if the shock and the fork do not have position sensitive valving (which i assume they don't) then why would sitting a little lower in the stroke with soft springs be stiffer?
  13. I have a '06 RM250. I just had my suspension revalved and it is much more compliant in the woods, but still WAY too stiff, so i believe i need to swap to softer springs. I ride NO MX, I only ride woods - C enduro rider. I am only 145 lbs w/o gear. I need input from some of the lightweights out there about what spring rate to use. Race Tech Recommended Fork Spring Rate: 0.397 kg/mm Stock Fork Spring Rate: .430 kg/mm (stock) Race Tech Recommended Rear Shock Spring Rate: 4.88 kg/mm (use closest available) Stock Shock Spring Rate: 5.2 kg/mm (stock) I am thinking of going softer than the recommendations - I want a really soft and plush ride. If I went with Front: .38 and Rear: 4.6, would it be too soft?
  14. i put the stealth on my '06 RM250 which replaced the stock silencer. It is definitely much quieter than stock, but you still hear alot of noise from the open airbox and the thin stock pipe. It is no where near as quiet as my '02 KDX220 with its airbox lid in place. If i took off the airbox lid of my KDX, then they are similar in noise. I did not notice ANY negative impact on the power.
  15. they are great bikes. you will really love that you can ride the bike hard and not worry so much about the power getting away from you.
