  1. Anyone switch from a 450 to a 2017 or newer TC250 or 250SX? I have a 08 CRF450 I like a lot but since the new Husky/KTM redesign in 2017 I have been thinking of making the switch back to 2 strokes. I am 37 with 2 kids and mainly ride at practice tracks and maybe one race a year...so I dont ride competitive but love ripping on tracks. So I was looking for some feedback/input from anyone who rode a new Husky/KTM.
  2. Let me start off saying I LOVE my 08 CRF450. It performs close to flawless...is in like new condition...zero complaints. So no real reason to replace it. With all the updates to the new Husky TC250 and KTM 250SX I am considering making the switch back to 2strokes. Just trying to gauge if I am just hyping myself up a bit over the new 2strokes or if it is worth considerong selling the 450 and picking up a new TC250. I mainly just ride on practice tracks for fun. I dont race serious and may run 1-2 per year. Just want to get some thoughts or if anyone already switched to a new 2stroke. I know it's a bit easy to hype yourself up when you want something.
  3. I just bought and put together a Haul Master (Harbor Freight) 4x8 folding trailer. Right now it only has a plywood deck on it. I want to build wall/sides for it and wanted to see what everyones setup looks like for ideas. I am going to be hauling two bikes with it so I want to mount some eye bolts on the outside of the trailer so I have a better angle for tie downs. So my walls will have to have a space between the wall boards for the tie downs to feed through. So if you have a utility trailer please post up your setup ideas will be appreciated. This is what it looks like all folded up
  4. Pics of my 04...Sad to say it is FOR SALE
  5. I just picked up a 08 CRF450 that is basically bone stock. I wanted to get a nice graphics kit for it and I like the new Troy Lee Lucas kit a lot…mainly because it has blue and looks a little retro. I found a good deal on ebay but it notes “Pictures are for reference only”. The bike pictured is the new style so I wanted to see a pic of the actual kit on a 05-08. So if anyone can post up a pic I would appreciate it, I searched the internet and couldn’t actually find the 2011 Lucas kit on a 05-08. The pic below is the kit I am looking at but on a 2011. Also if anyone has any other kits that look good feel free to post them up too.
  6. Is this just a Suzuki thing? I run the same oil he did in my CRF450 and have had zero problems?
  7. Looks awesome...I think i might pop some wheelies with it after work 2day...popping wheelies is rad
  8. It seems like a $200 sticker kit...RMZ's come stock with Excels but not gold. I prob would pay for it.
  9. My CRF is just fine:thumbsup:
  10. Does the 07 oil pump bolt up to the 06 motor? Aslo do you think the automatic cam chain tensioner in 07 is part of the fix? I hear on the 05 and 06 you have to keep an eye on the cam chain.
  11. 01 for 1800 is a good deal.
  12. I had a 93 Yam RT100...dominate machine...it was the drag race king against my friend's XR100
  13. I guess when we are up your camp in the huge field we will see.
  14. This may sound dumb...but how old is the gas?
  15. I used to own one for about 4-5 years. I loved that bike. Motor wise it is one of the best 2 strokes I ever rode. Has power everywhere and a ton of it (I only had FMF Fatty and power Valve). The bike was stiff. When I owned it I weighed 180 when I first got it and 205 when I sold it. I guess I got used to it being so stiff and with me weighing a decent amount for me it wasnt too bad. My buddy that weighed 150 would ride it and say how he hated how stiff/rigid it was. I heard/read a lot of people getting the suspension done up and it worked great, but I also heard some others didnt have much luck. So I personally would say if the price is right then go for it...the bike is a rocket with a motor that is awesome on any mx/sx track.
