  1. Some of me racing throughout the years. 2018 2017 2016 2009 2008 2007 2005
  2. You should frequent ebay. I have done several projects like this and if you set up keyword searches you can find some pretty good deals. My latest deal is a titled 2013 kx 100 that i bought for $100. Going to rebuild it slowly over the next couple of years for when my son transitions from a 65.
  3. Breaking things, be it the bike or yourself, is just part of the territory. I dislocated my knee 3 times in one ride. Did the whole PT thing. Popped it out on my first ride back. Walked it off. Went racing the following weekend. Dislocated it twice more during the race. Kept racing. My 7-year-old had his hand ran over during his moto practice. I asked him if he wanted to take a break, he said "No. I want to ride through the pain." If your heart isn't in it, and you don't have a threshold for pain. I would say quit.
  4. I stage out of the Middle Waddell day use lot when I go for a day ride and have never had issues with quads. In fact, the last time I went earlier this month, the other motorcycle riders in the lot were the obnoxious ones. Just get around them on the trail and be on your way. I ride on the weekdays though, so I avoid the weekend crowd.
  5. This is my kid's RM 65 I picked up blown for $320. I invested $400 more in the following: Hotrods bottom end kit Wiseco top end kit New chain Tamer lowering kit radiator hoses Works connection radiator brace repainted the frame Front brake assembly FMF turbine core New air filter Future mods: handguards aftermarket expansion chamber blue seat cover with yellow ribs custom blue and yellow graphics with preprint backgrounds Vforce reeds
  6. This is my 2003 KX 250 project. Got the bike after PO blew it up at the dunes. Wossner Top end kit Wiseco bottom end kit FMF gnarly and turbine core 11 oz FWW Wiseco clutch basket and plates Rekluse Core EXP 3.0 Moose EZ Pull Bib mousse Front and Rear Handguards New graphics Gripper seat Oversized tank Rear hand hold Front and rear sprung for my weight Gold Valve in the rear Rear wave rotor Pro taper oversized bars It is a fun bike.
  7. That's why I buy cheap chinese handguards off ebay. $25 for full wrap guards. Made it through a season of hard trail riding and harescrambles. Even slammed a tree hard enough to crack the inner clamp in half. Still works just fine.
  8. I'm pretty introverted as well. I tried getting my wife into the sport but she wasn't too interested. I am in the process of rebuilding a couple quads so we can ride dunes together. I typically ride with my dad but when he can't go sometimes i'm stuck riding alone which isn't bad because I can keep a faster pace and don't have to stop at every junction. I always text my wife which trails I will be on. I don't give a certain time I will be back, because shit happens but it is generally a rule that if I haven't texted a few hours after dark then get worried. That being said, I have found a few riding partners at the gym and at a few local races. You start to be a regular at the races and you will make some riding buddies.
  9. My saga into trading started with this Trek Jack. I traded straight across for this all downhill Specialized Big Hit But mountain biking is only so much fun and I longed to get back into motorcycles after a 4 year hiatus so I traded straight across for this blown kx 125. After lots of wrenching and ebay deals, the bike came together. I raced the bike several times and placed first in 200A and 200B on several occasions. Then I blew the top end and being a bigger guy, I knew I needed a bigger bike. So I traded straight across for this blown 2003 kx 250. After more wrenching and ebay deals, the 2003 kx 250 now looks like this I am happy with how my barter journey has gone.
  10. Looking forward to this! See you out there
  11. Couldn’t say no to picking up this titled basket case 2013 kx 100 for $100. I have a several projects so this one will be sitting for a while but the plan is to turn it into a woods weapon for my kid when he is ready to transition to a bigger bike. Came with everything but the expansion chamber and assorted bolts.

    Sometimes the deals are too good to pass up. Picked up this 2013 titled kx 100 basket case last night.
  13. To be honest, outside of a flywheel remover, I didn’t use any special tools. I used the heat and freeze method to install the bearings and remove them. Check out eBay for the parts. I was able to pick up a brand new hot rods bottom end for $100.
  14. I just rebuilt a 2005 rm 65 top and bottom end plus various parts like radiation hoses, chain etc. . It was about $400 in parts. I did all the labor myself.
  15. Dislocated my right kneecap in February doing a warm up wheelie before a trail ride. Never even went down. Just planted my leg wrong. Did PT for a month and a half and doc finally gave me the sign off to ride. It is strong but I am a little nervous it will dislocate again. I get 2 more dislocations before surgery is considered. I already had my left knee reconstructed. Best of luck and listen to the doctor.
