    After buying this YZ450F I can actually say it is the most fun I have had on a motorcycle in a long long time. I enjoy the raw fun you can have at the twist of the throttle. Coming from a Buell 1125R, it's a huge change but I would do it over the same way 1000 times.

    Street legal in AZ, this 450SXF. Started with trail ready, kept going to full street legal. Easy to get plated in AZ. Pain in the ass and expensive to do all this on MX bike, but mad fun to have the 450SXF on the trails, open desert and bush.

    Just bought it and haven't had much time to ride yet. Amazing handling and awesome throttle response. Can't wait to put in some seat time!
  6. The Real Dubya USA- The One You Know, But Don't Know Family Owned. Family Run. A family that is motorcycles to the bone and have been that way their whole life. That's who John & Kristin Anderson of Dubya USA are. John Anderson worked for White Brothers Cycle Specialties for over 20 years with various responsibilities, his primary focus was Managing the Race Teams & supported riders. Kristin (White) Anderson, daughter of The Tom White from White Brothers Racing, has been involved in every aspect of motorcycles and the demands of racing since she was young. The two now run Dubya USA, named after the first letter 'W' of the historic White family name. John & Kristin Anderson You might know Dubya for their sharp wheelsets on teams like Rocky Mtn MC/ATV KTM, Red Bull Factory Racing KTM, Rockstar Energy Racing Husqvarna, JGR Suzuki, Star Racing Yamaha, Monster Energy Factory Yamaha, etc. What you might not know is the same care, attention & components that go into those teams' wheels goes into all Dubya wheels. It all started with a simple idea: build the best wheels with the best components. Whether that is using your stock hub and lacing up new rims, a custom wheel set, or a vintage restoration - they strive to do the same thing - build the best wheels they can. The knowledge & knowhow was no problem as John had been building race spec wheels for over 20 years at White Bros Racing. But they still needed the components to put it all together and get rolling. When White Brothers sold in 2008, Talon Engineering, widely regarded as some of the best hubs, lost their US distribution. John & Kristin were able to re-establish this through Dubya in 2011 and negotiated for exclusive distribution of Talon Hubs in the States. Soon after they also secured the Kite line of products exclusively, as well. Talon Engineering, out of England, has been producing high quality machined hubs for over 40 years. They have over 100 World Championships on their products and 75 current Champions riding on their product. With over 75,000 sprockets in stock at all times for a variety of machines & distribution to more than 35 countries, they have earned their reputation as some of the best machined moto parts money can buy. It's the little things that give Talon their legendary name. For example, Talon uses 36-hole hub construction as opposed to 32-hole used by others. All Talon hubs use a ‘3-cross’ lacing pattern translating to superior strength over other methods. Since then, Dubya USA has earned a reputation for building the high-tech race wheels for today's fastest riders. But I am writing this to tell you they do so much more. From just getting your practice wheels refreshed with new rims to complete vintage wheel restoration- Dubya does it. They even have you covered on the larger, adventure bike dual-disc wheels. Dubya completes all projects in 1-3 days Getting a pair of wheels refreshed with new rims is one of their most popular services. I would bet it is because of how simple they make the process. There is a lot of communication from Dubya, nothing sits for weeks, and you know exactly what's going on & how much it'll cost up front. They have all projects finished in 3 business days, some projects sooner. Their goal is to do top-shelf work fast, so they earn your repeat business and you tell your friends. Apparently it is working as Dubya has seen steady, year over year growth. Find out more here Thinking about a custom wheel set but not sure how it will look? The idea is in your head but you need to see it? Their custom wheel builder tool is great for this dilemma. Believe me, I know, this is where I started. Check out what your idea looks like here Choose your bike color and start mixing and matching. You can select all the customizations they offer in whatever combinations you want and the tool will show you the MSRP in real time. This is great for comparing cost options and making those hard decisions on which spoke color looks better; the black or silver. Choose from premium components like rims from Excel Takasago or DID Dirt Star, chains from RK or DID, braking systems from Galfer & Motostuff. Regardless of your taste, Dubya has your flavor. Wheel sets come ready to mount with front disc & rear sprocket hardware, spacers; the works. One of the coolest services Dubya offers is their Vintage Wheel Restoration. I think offering this service is a cool tip of the hat to Tom White, Kristin's father. He owned more than 200 Vintage bikes and had them in his own private museum. Tom always made sure the history of bikes was preserved and remembered. Dubya doing this just helps ensure that same vintage preservation be available to all of us. Some parts are nearly impossible to find given their age or rarity, so Dubya makes them. All you need is your hub and they will cut, bend & thread spokes onto your choice of rim so you receive your wheel ready to mount. You can do as much or as little with your hub as you like. They can reset the OEM look with a simple wet blast restoration. Or, they can Cerakote them for that extra bit of durability and a super clean look, just pick your finish: A few Cerakote finish options, one of Dubya's most popular services Excel Takasago Rims, Talon Billet Magnesium Hub, Black Bulldog Spokes, Silver nipples on #ThumperTalkTurns20 Bike Build Dubya USA recently built a set of wheels for a bike build we did for ThumperTalk's 20th Anniversary. The bike is a 2018 KTM 300 XC-W Six Days. I knew I wanted to go with blue rims, but that was about all I knew. All the other color & style options made it hard to visualize a concept and choose it with confidence. So I sat there on the Dubya Custom Wheel Builder Tool and mixed and matched options for hours. It really is fun. It's easy to send to your riding buds and get their input. I sent at least 10 different options to my buds to get their feedback. The tool really does give you a realistic idea of what the actual wheel will look like. There are tools out there that let you see the wheel build, but they only show the wheel and you can't really picture how the overall scheme will look on the bike. That's what I liked about the tool, getting that complete bike picture. The build came out great! The blue rims & mag hubs really sets the bike off. I really do enjoy getting to know the people behind the brands. Dubya USA has built a reputation of high value. You get what you pay for sort of thing. They offer a 1-5 year warranty on their wheels (depending on what products) and genuine customer service. I would encourage you to take a close look at Dubya for your wheel needs and see if they don’t do everything they can to earn your business, I bet you’ll be happy you did.

  8. Converting a 2017 KTM 500 EXC-F to supermoto. Looking for some insight into what brand wheel to buy. I live in Canada and couldn’t find many options so I’m probably going to buy something internationally. Looking for decent wheels but not necessarily the best/most expensive. So far I’ve been leaning towards getting VMX wheels. I heard that Excels were not as strong as Warp 9 wheels, but I’ve also heard mixed reviews on Warp 9’s. I’m not opposed to cheaper Chinese wheels as long as they are decent. Although stuff from China usually means poor quality and poor consistency. If this topic was already discussed can someone post the link, I’m new to thumper talk and not sure what I’m doing.. Thanks in advance. ??

    Bought not running for 1600. Cleaned carb and added fresh fuel and she fired right up!! THIS BIKE RIPS!! Went 30:1 on the first gallon but looking to go to 40:1 and see how it performs. So far this thing is an arm ripper for sure! Came with an extra set of plastics as well. All in all happy with it so far but I have yet to take it out for a nice long ride and see how it holds up.

    I will get a picture up as soon as possible. The picture of the XR is just for the Seal Savers Review. After many years of laborious labor of love upgrading my 1981 XR-200R and trying to stuff it into a 00' YZ-426-F frame, My loving? Wife offered to let me "Buy a New Dirt Bike" for our 10th Anniversary September 2002. Well, after much hemming & hawing and being the cheap scape I am, I found a NUSED 2002 KTM MXC400-RFS. Bike was manufactured Feb. 2002, sold new for roughly $8000 and now being sold Sept. 02' for $4900.00 with about 10 hrs. per seller. A lot of money to me since, I had barely paid that much for a new car, much less used dirt bike. Since returning from Texas in 90 all the North Carolina Trail Riders(NCTR) rave were over how great KTMs were. Got to admit the 93' 300 EXC I rode briefly in the Daniel Boone NF pulled almost better than my Stroker XR200R down low. So after seeing this 400 MXC in Cycle News, talking with seller and doing minor research I decided, it was now my turn to buy a Kronreif & Trunkenpolz Mattighofen. My Wife and I drove to Kings Dominion, I test drove the bike in a truck stop parking lot. First impression heavy dead weight @247lbs dry/>260lbs w/ fuel @ 8#s/gallon, slow feeling (like the last 84' XR-500R I rode) for a New Gen 4-stroke, but what the Hey, I'm going for it?after driving 3+ hrs just to window shop. About 1 year later, following Spring 03, the NCTR club had it's Second annual Mini Single Track/Trail Shoot Out, in the Curtis Mountain area. The "NCTR Shootout" members was composed of primarily Serious Seasoned Experienced Dirt Bike Riders/Racers ranging from 18-near 50, weights 120#-200#+. One of the purposes was to let members try out different bikes in trail systems we were actually riding in MEANING "EAST COAST SINGLE TRACK" rather than the West Coast areas all the Purdy Mags wrote consistently about. Between 8+ or so bikes, 1) 98' KTM-380 EXC 2) 92' Yam. WR-500 3) 00' KTM 400 SX-RFS 4) 02(?)03' Yam-YZ-250F 5) 02/03(?) KTM-200-EXC 6) 03' KTM-450 RFS-EXC 7) 02' KTM 400MXC-RFS 8( 02/03 KTM 250-EXC 2-smoke. There was most likely a couple more 2-smokes, but I don't remember what KTMs, YAMs, ZUKs, KAWs?? The terrain we chose likened to the old "Cross Country, Hair Scrambles or Enduro trails we use to race on. Similar to some of the Brown Mountain and Uwharrie Nat. Forest Trail Systems. This trail system was pre-run by all riders to point out markers and familiarize route. Overgrown logging skid paths strewn with limbs fallen trees here and there, side track hill trail, a couple hill climbs, Exposed rock, loose crush and run shale gravel on connector dirt maintained roads, woods switch back with some stream crossings and of course tree roots every where along the way. The soil is primarily tacky red clay, decomposed leave mulch loose top layer on hard pack w/ typical mountain type rock exposed throughout. Moisture content of soil typical of woods riding with wet shady areas and dry trail in open sunny areas(NEAR PERFECT). There were 2 routes, one having more "Difficult Trail" than the other. We staged in a lower flat open woods area and allowed everyone to ride their personal bike and be timed throughout the different sections with times recorded. Then, each member could ride other members bikes for comparison of how their performance on another 2-smoke or 4-stroke of their Interest or Curiosity. Some of the bikes were modified w/ "Terrain Tamer" or bone stock, including Factory Spark arrestors to racing pipes, systems. The bikes ranged from Converted MXers(00'SX_RFS, 03(?)YZ-F, Enduro (98'-03 EXCs), Cross Country/Desert(91'WR, 02MXC). Bike Ride Times were stop watched measured and Recorded on each individual bike and Rider. KTM Memory of Exact date Fall 02 or Spring 03 fails me. I do remember this was one of the first woods rides for my NUSED Shiny Orange machine. I do know, I had been Motocross practicing this bike in Eastern North Carolina terrain. Major Woods riding had not been attempted up to this point. I might have put 5-8 hours on bike. Maybe one oil change(?) The suspension on the bike had been adjusted for sag Rear and Front per KTM owner's manual. System had been set up for more MX vs. woods/trails. Clickers had been set for harsher terrain per manual again. WP USD 4357 MXMA EXC forks(great for woods/BAD for MX) and PDS 5018 MCC EXC shock are the stock suspension components for the MXC. The engine is the same 4V SOHC w/ 400 SX tuning, & with close ratio SX 6 speed transmission, not wide ratio 6 sp. in 400/520 EXC. The MAGIC BUTTON, Standard for RFS motors on MXCs and 12V/110W charging/lighting system, not on SX-RFS or SX 2-smokes though. Fuel tank is the humongous Baja/Desert 13L/3.5 gallon w/ the radiator protection actually being fuel capacity for the tank. Standard 21" front with 18" rear wheels. Magura Fat bars w/ adjustable mounting. Magura Hydraulic actuated clutch system works like "Butta"?. If you get a hydraulic clutch bike & then go back to a mechanical cable, YOU will SEE/Feel the advantages of smoother actuation, less hand/finger fatigue & GREATER CLUTCH CONTROL. Front 260mm/Rear 220mm brakes are Brembo Excellent for the year. The "Hard as a Rock" Seat/tank transition is relatively flat considering the tank size making cockpit easy to move about in. The triple tree is 20(?)mm offset. Forks are closed chambers(?) When all the dust settled, the consensus, by the times of the riders, on all the different bikes showed the KTM MXC 400-RFS & the KTM EXC-300 were the bikes that had the best times among all the bikes tested by different riders. Unfortunately, for me, I busted my "Arse" on a limb fallen at 45 degrees to the trail and re-cracked my ribs, that were injured, a couple months prior, when I blew out of a high sandy bowl berm and the bike landed on top of me. So, after the first run, I found out how fast this sluggish heavy feeling 4-stroke was in the woods, obviously faster than I knew how to handle it.
