  1. For the last couple of years I have been riding a Yamaha DT175 (RT180). It has been a great bike to gain experience in and it is as reliable as a wood burning stove. At the end of last year, I was looking into getting a new bike and started out with big bore two strokes. After test riding some of them, I found them too brutal in the bush, as I ride technical single trail. Yes, the torque is lovely at some times but after 5 hours of riding, it is actually a burden. As a result, I did not pull the trigger on either the te300 or wr250 which were my main choices. After watching the local GasGas races, I saw that the first 4 positions were held by Husaberg riders, and all in 125's. This made me consider the smallest of the husaberg lineup. I just finished a 1 day enduro on one of these bikes and frankly, I'm in love. There is good low end, never forgetting it is still a 125 and when on the pipe it is just mental. It has much more usable power than the 250's and 300's and that is why I have decided to pull the trigger. If there are any exc 125/200 or te 125 owners, any feedback on setting the bike up will be immensely appreciated. Any thoughts on the 125's?
  2. I posted this on another thread earlier but would like more people's opinions on what would motivate you to buy an electric motocross bike or not buy one. Please read my post before replying if you have the time I've been following and watching these EV (electric vehicle) Motorcycle companies the last few years and I must say I am more than impressed with what is being accomplished, especially in the Road Racing world. The charge times have now gotten as low as 30 minutes (you can even charge these off of a portable or mounted solar panel fixture on the roof of your trailer) and range has improved as much as up to 200 miles per charge on acompetitive sport bike (see Lightning Motorcycles LS 218 model and Brammo, Mission Motorcycles). While the EV MX bike is not quite a total reality to the open market TODAY, it will be in coming months. Currently the there are few "Motocross" styled EV bikes out there from Zero Motorcycles, Quantya EVO1/2, and the lately popular KTM Freeride E. Now I've seen all these in action and have read through countless reviews and though they are all incredible electric motorcycles that are created for the dirt, they don't quite hit the mark when it comes to becoming the next best mx bike to go the fastest around a track on. They are all fun and serve a great purpose to a wide audience of enthusiasts and trail riders but the motocross track racing individual would feel disadvantaged on the starting gate lined up next to the latest 250f's at this point in time. This is why I've had my focus on a silicon valley based EV Motocross bike company called BRD Motorcycles. Their sole mission is to create an EV MX/SM bike that can compete DIRECTLY with the 250f competitive motocross/supermotard bikes today. Here's a quick pic: Now this was their 2012 prototype that claimed some very competitive specs in 2012. Since then, they have completely re-designed the battery packs and power delivery process with some very unique proprietary designs. Here's a quick overview of the TCO of their MX version vs a CRF250R (same as the sm version but for mx) KEEP IN MIND this was the circa 2012 Prototype model and since then improvements have been made. Now I know some of you do your own maintenance and such but take this at face value and understand that these vehicles require less overall maintenance and as time progresses the cost to manufacturer to build these "simpler" motors will decrease as well, bringing the cost down to you. Look at the spec'd performance from 2012 on the BRD Redshift MX and Redshift SM Now considering these specs from the 2012 Prototype model, and the information you can find on updates made in the BRD garage:http://www.faster-fa...lectric-motors/ the actual expected 2014 models should have increased RANGE by 2/3s and DECREASED time to charge. Here are a few links to some of their 2012 released Promotional snid bits out at Club Moto and in the Santa Cruz hills. Club Moto Prototype Ride: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NRllNmeRbRI Private Track Prototype: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SsURzdqaTtI Some things to note as an MX dude myself... - EV Mx bikes produce more than competitive HP/TQ while maintaining a perfectly flat and always deliverable TQ curve - There are NO emissions restrictions to deal with (in CA this is HUGE for new model bikes) - Electric motors are by for the most simply designed and least maintenance requiring power units and with technology now making batteries light enough to be competitive weight wise it's time to produce this bike! - A 40+ hp, 25+ tq, 0 emissions, track ready MX EV bike weighing in at around 227lbs (from what I've gathered on recent battery weight savings) sounds pretty AWESOME to me. I love the doors that this will open up in our industry and sport and if you disagree I respect that, but ask that you do your research before condemning them. I used to (and still do) LOVE 2 strokes, but found that it was easier to go faster on 4 strokes, then I found that it was even easier to go faster with an EFI four stroke, and if I follow this trend of always looking to go faster on my dirtbike then it seems inevitably I will be pounding laps on my BRD Redshift MX EV bike soon! Going fast is what puts a smile on my face and if I can go faster on a BRD Redshift MX than on my EFI thumper than I'm sure as hell going to jump in and try it out! Thanks for reading and I would love to see your opinions or maybe corrections if I may have noted something incorrectly here. In the meantime I'll be rippin my green sticker 2002 CR250 and fillin up with my $14/gallon VP fuel and $17/Liter mix - Shelby
  3. Exciting track planned for the next round IRVIVE, CA – September 15, 2015 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – The GEICO AMA EnduroCross series has had a long summer break but will return to the Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, California on Saturday, September 26th. The home of the Sacramento Kings NBA team will look much different with the rocks, logs, sand and pond that make up the EnduroCross track. As the track map reveals, the riders will be challenged right from the start with a huge log exiting the first turn before a tricky multiple log second turn leads them into the pond for the first time. A huge boulder field will greet them before the firewood pit, which typically proves to be one of the most unpredictable obstacles. Then it will be a “matrix”, which is a section of unevenly spaced logs that often send riders over the handlebars. The start straight will be the only break on the track before climbing the massive tractor tires and heading into an elevated rock section. And then they do it all over again for several laps. EnduroCross is known for throwing all of the obstacles an off-road rider may find in a typical day of riding into a single lap. It often creates the most exciting racing you will ever see and features some of the most talented motorcycle riders in the world. Cody Webb, Colton Haaker, Mike Brown, Taylor Robert, Cory Graffunder, Kyle Redmond, Max Gerston, Ty Tremaine, Geoff Aaron, Wild Wally Palmer, and Destry Abbott are joined by some of the young guns like Nick Thompson, Cooper Abbott and Noah Kepple looking to make their mark. Don’t miss the action as the riders start into the first of five remaining rounds to determine the 2015 GEICO AMA EnduroCross champion. The 2015 GEICO AMA EnduroCross series will be back in action inside the Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, California on Saturday, September 26th. If you have never been to an EnduroCross, you must get to an event in 2015. The exciting show and amazing skills on display will blow you away. And if you want to see how your skills match up to the EnduroCross track, there are classes for Open Amateur, Vet 35+, Women and TrialsCross that anyone can enter! Sign up today! https://secure.tracksideonlineresults.com/mmsx_ex/ Tickets for all of the 2015 EnduroCross events are available at: www.EnduroCross.com/tickets/ If you can’t be there in person, you can follow the events via the FMF Live Timing and Scoring at: http://endurocross.escoremx.com/liveresults.asp All eight 2015 GEICO AMA EnduroCross events will air full one hour shows on CBS Sports Network.

    Custom Crf Supermoto Help!

    So here's the deal. I've decided that instead of dishing out 10k for a brandy new Ktm 500exc, I'm going to build the bike I want for a lot less. What I have in mind is a Honda Crf preferably 07-present made street legal. This bike will be modded to pass inspection in NY state which would include head, tail, signal lights and a horn. I have little experience in doing this type of work so, any past experience / knowledge / tips would be more than appreciated!! Please post pictures as well as give recommendations to the parts used on your supermotos. Thank you!!
  9. I've been watching Graham Jarvis and various other rides that do the same type of riding as him. Thinking about it I would LOVE to even be as half as good as him. Everyone starts somewhere and i would like to learn. Im currently in the process of building a small enduro track in my back yard/woods. I have an assortment of steep jumps in it now and I'm planning on putting large logs and rocks with sections of chopped wood. From his videos i seen that balance is huge. I think a good starting point would be to learn to balance on the bike when not moving, I can turn extremely slow and balance at slow speeds but i cant when not moving. If anyone has any input of thing I can do to learn and become a much better of road rider please let me know!.
  10. Just bought a 1998 Yamaha wr400 a few weeks ago, helluva bike! Problem is I took it for a ride the other day, stopped for a while then tried to start it up and the kickstarter stayed down. I had to manually pull it back up. That being said, I still needed to get home so I pushed it to a hill and had to roll/compression start it, this in itself took some doing because the first few times I released the clutch, it started then the kickstarter went down by itself and stalled the bike. Any ideas or suggestions would greatly be appreciated in regards to what I need to repair/replace!!! Thank you in advance! This post has been promoted to a wiki
  11. I am going to be putting a track into my backyard early spring and I was hoping I could see some pics of other peoples tracks to get some cool ideas. I've read all the other forums, but they are all way out dated. Thanks

  16. Girardi Wealth Management posts GEICO EnduroCross Holeshot cash A cool $500 in the EX Pro Main Event IRVINE, Calif., (June 21, 2010) – GEICO Powersports AMA EnduroCross Series, presented by E3 Spark Plugs, welcomes back Mike Girardi of Girardi Wealth Management Group of Wells Fargo Advisors and the popular $500 Girardi Holeshot Award for all six 2010 EnduroCross rounds. As with all racing, arriving at the initial turn first is important and Girardi, himself a dirt biking enthusiast, will reward those riders who pull that all-important holeshot. “It is truly a pleasure and an honor to be associated with this great series,” said Girardi. “One of my greatest passions is off road riding and racing, so it’s very thrilling for me not only to be a sponsor, but especially so to be offering the holeshot award at every event this year. Endurocross is by far and away the most exciting off road venue in the country!” “Passion and the love for off-road racing describes Mike Girardi” says Lance Bryson, Director of Sales & Marketing for GEICO EnduroCross “Girardi has been involved with the EnduroCross for the last four years. He wanted to do something for the riders and what better way than dangle cash in turn one.” EnduroCross tracks incorporate various elements of off road racing into a supercross-style setting, including rocks, boulders, logs, sand, mud, a water-hole… and even a few special obstacles like giant tires thrown in! Known as the “toughest racing on two wheels,” this indoor version of extreme off road racing will certainly keep you on your feet. The GEICO Powersports AMA EnduroCross series will be captured by the Versus Network, to be aired on the popular grassroots racing program; The Lucas Motorsports Hour. With its excitement and unpredictability, the EnduroCross championship has always down to the wire and this year will be no different as the series starts and finishes at Vegas’ Orleans Arena!

  17. Husqvarna’s Corey Graffunder takes charge of the E3 Spark Plugs’ EnduroCross Pro Junior Championship chase The Canadian extreme off-road event specialist locks down his second-straight GEICO AMA EnduroCross podium finish and leads Colton Haaker, 56-47, after three rounds of EX action ANAHEIM, Calif. (Sept. 16, 2009) – At 6-3 and 190 pounds and able to flick a dirt bike around like it’s a mountain bike it might be hard to label Zip-Ty Husqvarna’s Corey Graffunder as a “Junior.” But the fact remains that the 21-year-old qualifies for the newly-formed E3 Spark Plugs’ EnduroCross Pro Junior Championship and, with his second-straight podium finish coming this past weekend in Florence, S.C., he’s out into the lead for the title of top young contender on the GEICO AMA EnduroCross series, presented by E3 Spark Plugs. Graffunder, who hails from British Columbia, is part of a new breed of off-road racers that’s decided to combine, or in some cases (such as his) forgo a professional motocross racing career, in favor of pursuing their passion of pure off-road racing. Top young off-road names such as 19-year-olds Colton Haaker, Patrick Smage and Ronald Commo, 20-year-olds Eric Rodgers and Matt Crouch and 21-year-olds Nick Brozovich, Jamie Lanza and Kyle Redmond have all joined in the pursuit of the E3 Spark Plugs’ EnduroCross Pro Junior Championship – all chasing Graffunder who leads Haaker by nine points, 56-47 after three GEICO EnduroCross rounds. Catching the eye of Husqvarna’s National Sales and Marketing Director, Scot Harden, Graffunder’s proved to be one of the ’09 GEICO EnduroCross season’s top acquisitions out of all the factory teams as he’s gone 7th/3rd/3rd in three contests where just making the main event has been quite a chore for the world’s top off-road racers. “Aside from his pure riding skills, one of the qualities that drew us to Corey is his attitude,” explained Harden. “He’s so dedicated and just wants to really make a mark in the sport. He’s as focused as anyone I’ve ever seen and at 21 years of age it’s a trait that is often hard to find. With an experienced team manager like Ty Davis and with our ultra light new TC250 the combination has already proven very effective.” Coming off a 5th place finish at the legendary Erzberg Enduro race in Austria earlier this summer, Graffunder actually opened the GEICO EnduroCross season riding a KTM. Placing a respectable 7th at the Las Vegas EX opener, Graffunder would soon get the phone call. “Right after Vegas I got in contact with Husqvarna and Ty Davis and had a opportunity to come down and try the bike and possibly ride for them,” said Graffunder. “I hopped on a plane down to California as soon as I could and INSTANTLY fell in love with the bike, hit it off well with Ty and Scot also and things were looking good. Went to Oklahoma and got on the podium. So things just keep getting better from there.” One of the questions that ultimately comes up with younger EnduroCross racers is Why didn’t you pursue motocross? In Graffunder’s case, he did. But felt a stronger calling from the sport of off-road. “In 2006 I raced the Canadian MX Nationals, so I got a taste of that,” he explained. “I’ve been racing off-road now for many years before that. I’ve got nothing against motocross, it’s fun. I could probably race motocross for the rest of my life and have some fun doing it. But I just have a passion for off-road racing and that’s where I see myself.” At his size, again 6-3 and 190 pounds, Graffunder doesn’t fit into the typical 5-7, 145 pound motocrosser percentile. But in off-road events, and particularly GEICO EnduroCross, his size, he feels he’s at more of an advantage than a disadvantage. Add to that fact that Husqvarna put him on a bike that is almost a prototypical GEICO EnduroCross bike, the TC250, and it’s understandable how the combination’s made for two-straight podiums and the overall E3 Spark Plugs’ EnduroCross Pro Junior Championship points lead. “I’m at a slight weight disadvantage compared to most of the guys, so I was on an open class bike (450) last year,” said Graffunder. “When the opportunity came up to get on Husky’s X-light 250 (TC250) I was all over it because I knew this was a very specific bike for EnduroCross. You need the big power, but something that’s light that will put the power to the ground quickly and efficiently. And Ty’s set the Husqvarna up perfectly for that type of ride. It’s got the four-stroke grunt down low and the trackability that you need in the slippery rocks and on the logs, but it’s also as light as a lot of the two-strokes. So you’ve got the best of both worlds.” And regarding his unique size, Graffunder adds: “I watch the little guys like Lanza and Palmer and they seem to struggle a lot in the rocky turns and the logs in the corners and such. And I have no issue there. Just throw the leg down and flick the bike around like it’s a mountain bike. So I think my size helps a lot in the areas like that.” Ultimately, according to Harden, it’s Graffunder’s flat out love for the sport of off-road that will guide him to excellence in the sport. “Corey reminds me a lot of David Knight. He’s a tall rider and his long legs allow him to make recoveries in an instant,” said Harden. “Like Knight, though, Corey doesn’t just rely on his size and strength. He brings a lot of technique and finesse to the table as well. This is why we feel he has such a bright future, He doesn’t just try to overpower the bike. With a little more experience and some additional physical training and conditioning he is going to be a force to be reckoned with.” Check out Graffunder and the Florence highlights on the GEICO Video Player: www.endurocross.com Combining multiple off-road motorcycle racing disciplines such as western U.S. desert enduro racing and eastern cross country racing with technical trials-style riding, GEICO EnduroCross showcases riders from all over the world that excel in these fields.

  25. EnduroCross ROUND 4: TADDY RETURNS IN DENVER ANAHEIM, Calif. (September 22, 2008) The 2008 AMA/Maxxis EnduroCross Championship Series, presented by Lucas Oil, is officially at it’s halfway mark and the drama is building as the series favorite returns from injury and will jump right in the middle of a heated championship points battle between teammates! This Saturday, September 27, Denver ’s National Western Complex will see Round 1 winner, KTM’s Taddy Blasuziak, back to reclaim the top spot on the podium while Monster Energy Kawasaki teammates, Ricky Dietrich and Damon Huffman, fight it out for the championship points lead! Taddy Blasuziak’s relatively quick return is a testament to the tenacity and grit of this young polish trials-star. Just weeks after a horrific practice crash that required extensive facial surgery, Taddy will return to racing action in the Mile High City with a new look and a new goal… “win as many races as possible!” With his aggressive riding style matched with his indescribable skill on a bike, his presence will instantly be felt! Currently leading two national championship series’ (EnduroCross and WORCS), Ricky Dietrich is on a role! Returning from the International Six Days Enduro (ISDE) in Greece, where he finished higher than any other American in history (2nd Overall), and heading straight to Florence, South Carolina for Round 3 of the AMA/Maxxis EnduroCross, Dietrich battled to a podium finish with teammate Damon Huffman and Canada’s Bobby Prochnau. Huffman won in Florence , his first in AMA EnduroCross competition and his first AMA national win since he put himself in the history books by winning $100K and the inaugural US Open in the MGM Grand over a decade ago! Going into Denver this weekend, only one point separates Dietrich and Huffman in the championship. Ten-time US Trials champ and Colorado transplant, Christini/KTM/BTOsports.com’s Geoff Aaron will be looking to get back on-track at the National Western Complex, just minutes from his home in Bailey. Having just finished as the top American (5th) this past week in arguably the toughest off-road event on the planet, the Romaniacs event in Romania, Aaron is certainly capable of mixing it up up-front. Given the technical aspect of EnduroCross trials experience tends give a rider an advantage, and a couple young US Trails stars have found early success in this new sport. Look for Lucas Oil backed, Colton Haaker and Colorado ’s, Keith Wineland to be charging hard on Saturday night! “We have been looking forward to returning to Denver ever since last year’s unbelievably exciting sold-out event,” claims series boss, Eric Peronnard. “Looking at the rider line-up, this year promises to again be a highlight of the season and tickets are going fast!” EnduroCross tracks incorporate various elements of Off-Road racing into a supercross-style setting, including rocks, boulders, logs, sand, mud, a water-hole… and even a few special obstacles like giant tires! Known as the “toughest racing on two wheels,” this indoor version of extreme off-road racing will keep you on your feet! The series, now its second season, will be captured by Lucas Oil and the Versus Network, to be aired on the popular grassroots racing program, the Lucas Motorsports Hour. Given the excitement and unpredictability of this indoor version of off-road racing, Round 4 looks to be an amazing event in Denver!
