    A daft question no doubt but still...

    It has an intended purpose. When you brake hard or land from a jump, it keeps the brake line from snagging on or behind the number plate....when the suspension returns...you risk stretching/ruining your brake line. I have cut mine off in the past to look cool, but after learning myself I leave it on all my bikes......and I run pro-taper bars. Go ahead and cut it off to be cool guy, but you won't look to cool when your front brakes fail and you cant use your brakes........good question though...most people dont know.
  2. after gas and oil are inserted. hold your front brake, and push forward a few times to pump the front forks up and down a few times. this will help slosh the gas around so you can mix it. (dont fill all the way, to allow space for sloshing)

    450 to 250

    the 450 is nice to ride through the woods, if you know how to ride a bike, and if you know how to rail trails. the 250 two stroke is nice also. I would have to say by experience, that an expert rider would do better on a 450, and any other rider would do better on a 250 smoker. i have never had an overheating problem or nothing on my 450. and no matter what it will chug through the trails....it all depends on rider and preference. if you are a spode though...dont take a 450 in the woods...take a 250 i can only laugh at imagining your fate.....

    MX Families look'n 4...

    in the dead of the winter....mornings are right around freezing........the sun comes out and warms up the track and by mid morning/noon the tracks and trails are primo. if camping is not an ideal situation there is lodging in nearby hotels in louisburg and henderson

    Raleigh, NC Area?

    if you guys knew anything about riding a bike threw a trail, then you would agree that NCMP's trails are top notch. they are the best to get a good rip on close to raleigh
