  1. ...DiMaggio of motocross. World-class consistent. Not near as flashy as Mickey Mantle or Bambino.
  2. I've rode without boots on small trails and on streets for about 2 years. I recently got alpinestar tech 1 mx boots and I had trouble shifting and I was also applying the rear breaks when my feet were relaxed. I've been wearing my boots around very often ( I have walked a little over a mile to break them in) but I still can't ride comfortably. I'm guessing that I have to lower my brake pedal and raise my shit lever, but it could also be my foot placement. I have the arches of my feet on the pegs when I ride. Thanks for any advice you guys have!
  3. So figured I would start a thread, going to Pala on Sunday, probably gonna to get lapped random kids on 65cc 2 smokers... Anybody else down to go? I'll be on my clapped out 05' YZ250, white bike with no stickers.
  4. Hello, and sorry if this is long winded I just need to make sure I cover everything. Been pretty interested in the whole idea of motocross for about a year or so now and I've saved up around £2000 to get my first bike. I've had a look at this bike, and it seems pretty good. http://m.funbikes.co.uk/M2R_Racing_Warrior_J1_250cc_2118_96cm_Dirt_Bike(4755).aspx But to be honest I'm not generally sure what to look for. Long story short I just need a suitably sized bike (I'm 17, 180cm tall). Which will perform well (I live in Essex which isn't exactly very rough terrain), and will last me a fairly long time with moderate use. If anyone could recommend me a bike which would be better value than the one above then please do. I just want something which is reliable, will be good to ride, is upgradeable and will last me a good amount of time with proper maintenance. I can go higher than £2000 so if that's necessary let me know. Overall just recommend me a reasonably priced bike which fits the above criteria. Also lastly, as far as I know there are no licences needed to own or ride a dirt bike (as long as they are kept off the road and are strictly only used on off road and non-public areas). If anyone is familiar with UK law could they let me know if there are any further licences needed. Google didn't exactly help me. Many Thanks Everyone!
  5. Here's a foorum for all of your videos about dirtbikes you would like to share!
  6. I have a Honda crf50f and its been sitting for 6 years. I just got a new carburetor and it's now running, only 1 problem. It wont idle when the choke is on or up position, it will only idle if choke is in the down or off position. Any help on what it could be? Thanks.
  7. BREA, CA – February 18, 2017 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – From local, grassroots racing and multiple national and world championships, to capturing the 2016 AMA 450 Pro Motocross title while dominating the series for the past decade, racing is at the core of Suzuki. It is the thread that sews together Suzuki’s heritage, the driving force that pushes product innovation, and the reason why countless motocross legends have chosen to swing their leg over an RM. As Suzuki continues to define racing, we are excited to announce the formation of the next generation of Suzuki racers. Those who will battle at their local race tracks, who will fight for national titles, and who, together, will carry the winning RM legacy into the future. Introducing the RM ARMY. Armed with the best handling machines in the industry and equipped with the support essential to develop champions, the RM ARMY is the future of Suzuki motocross. “The RM ARMY is a state of mind, a unifying force, and the umbrella under which our supercross and motocross racing programs will reside,” said Chris Wheeler, Motocross Racing Manager at Suzuki. “The RM ARMY was developed to create a sense of community for Suzuki racers. Connecting riders from around the country and projecting a larger Suzuki racing front is the goal. So whether you’re a weekend warrior, a rider on our RCH/Yoshimura/Suzuki Factory Racing team, or anywhere else in between, if you race Suzuki, you are part of the RM ARMY.”“I can’t wait to wear the RM ARMY badge,” said Richard Taylor, Suzuki ECSTAR Factory Elite Amateur Racing team rider. “Suzuki has really stepped up their game this year and I am so pumped to be a part of the launch of the RM ARMY.” RM ARMY amateur racers can take advantage of the various benefits offered by the Suzuki Amateur Racing Support program, which includes Contingency, Trackside Support, and Suzuki Camp Carmichael. Program details are outlined below, along with exciting information on Suzuki’s 2017 amateur racing teams. Suzuki MX Amateur Racing Support Program Contingency RM ARMY racers can take advantage of over $6 Million in available contingency for motocross, supercross, and off-road racing in 2017. The Suzuki contingency program was enhanced over the previous year to include more events and larger payouts, while also offering double contingency at key events such as RC Daytona SX and the final round of Amsoil Arenacross. Join the RM ARMY and let Suzuki support you in your race to the top of the podium. Getting started is as simple as this: Own an eligible Suzuki model Complete the online registration process at racesuzuki.com Race a specified event on the Suzuki Contingency Payout Schedule Place in a paying position Receive your rewards on your Suzuki Awards Card Redeem your rewards at any authorized U.S. Suzuki dealership Trackside Support Suzuki Trackside Support will also be on hand at key amateur racing events to support RM ARMY racers. Trackside Support carries a supply of parts available for riders in need at a discounted price, along with a qualified Suzuki technician to help answer technical questions. Suzuki will also have parts support available at each round of the Amsoil Arenacross Series. RM ARMY racers in need of parts can purchase them at the Suzuki Canopy next to the Babbitt’s pit area. Visit racesuzuki.com for the complete Trackside Support schedule. Suzuki Camp Carmichael RM ARMY racers are also provided the exclusive opportunity to attend Suzuki Camp Carmichael. This unique program allows Suzuki amateur racers to compete for the chance to train with 15-time MX/SX Champion, Ricky Carmichael, at his private training facility in Cairo, GA – The GOAT Farm. Attending Camp Carmichael is once-in-a life-time, all-expenses-paid opportunity only available to members of the RM ARMY. Details regarding Suzuki Camp Carmichael 2017, including how to qualify, will be announced on racesuzuki.com. In the meantime, check out the video to see how much fun we had at Suzuki Camp Carmichael 2016! Watch on YouTube below. Suzuki ECSTAR Factory Elite Amateur Racing The 2017 RM ARMY charge will be led by the Suzuki ECSTAR Factory Elite Amateur Racing team. Suzuki’s all-new Oil and Chemical brand, ECSTAR, will serve as an essential element in the growth of the Factory Elite Amateur program, and we are pleased to have their title support in 2017. The team is excited to announce the signing of Casey Cochran, Nikko Capps, and Crockett Myers to pilot the RM85, as well as TJ Rios, who will ride the RM-Z250, and Richard Taylor, who will ride both the RM-Z250 and the reigning AMA 450 Pro Motocross Champion, the RM-Z450. “We are thrilled to bring this talented group of riders back to our program for 2017,” said Wheeler. “Each rider showed a ton of potential last year and we are excited to continue growing together.” The team is proud to represent the following sponsors who support the Factory Elite program: ECSTAR, Mechanix Wear, ODI, Cometic Gasket, Hinson, ProX, Matrix, MXtire.com, N-Style, Acerbis, Wiseco, VP Racing Fuels, and Dunlop. Suzuki Regional Elite Amateur Racing Suzuki is also excited to announce the addition of the Suzuki Regional Elite Amateur Racing team with support from Suzuki dealers. “The addition of this program for 2017 is really exciting,” added Wheeler. “We received a great deal of sponsorship interest at the end of last year, and with the help of multiple racing-focused Suzuki dealers, we are pleased to announce the addition of five deserving riders to this new program.” Racing the RM85 for the Suzuki Amateur Regional Elite program is Preston Masciangelo, Dakota Aldredge, Slade Varola, and Caden Braswell. Brandon Yates will pilot the RM-Z250 and RM-Z450. Chaparral Suzuki Elite Amateur Racing / BarX Motorsports The RM ARMY front will be further strengthened with the launch of the Chaparral Suzuki Elite Amateur Racing / BarX Motorsports team. The west-coast based Suzuki support team led by Team Manager, Larry Brooks, will field three riders in 2017. With additional support from Suzuki racing-focused dealer, Chaparral Motorsports, Cole Barbieri and Brock Papi will race the RM-Z250 and the RM-Z450, while Brock Bennett will pilot the RM85. “I’m privileged to be part of such a first class race effort,” said Brooks. “The Amateur field is so competitive these days, and to be able to share my experience with these three fast racers is extremely rewarding. I feel that I can help them achieve their racing goals and this is what makes this venture very exciting to me.” Source: Suzuki Motor of America, Inc.
  8. I'm looking at retiring my 2007 CRF450R this year. I am after opinions on the best 2017 dirt bikes for vet racers like myself. I am a 34 year old fast C class or average to slow B class vet racer. I tend to leave the bike in 3rd as much as possible and let it lug a little if need be. I understand I will never use 100% of a 450's power. But I often find the power helpful to get up the speed to clear jumps if I start having issues maintaing my speed in corners, later in a race. I am thinking the Husqvarna FC450 would be my best bet. It's more mellow than some of the other 450's this year (thanks to the airbox and muffler), but still has enough low end so I don't have to shift and use clutch all the time. The FC450 is also set up so nice from the factory, I don't think I would upgrade anything. I am really tempted to try the 350SX-F too as I hear it handles amazing. But I do wonder if it might require a little more shifting, clutch work and general momentum maintaining than the FC450.
  9. Team Truck Driver Brian Barnhart gives a tour of the Factory Transport to see what it takes to support Monster Energy Kawasaki from event to event.
  10. Meet the key members that make the Monster Energy Kawasaki team a well-oiled Supercross machine.
  11. It has not been a small thing that Mitch had a couple of bikes blow up lately. My question is with the new generation of bike, Kawasaki lightened the bike considerably, are the engine cases causing the issue with them being thinner and lighter?
  12. http://racerxonline.com/2018/06/06/phil-nicoletti-to-fill-in-at-rockstar-energy-husqvarna When Jason Anderson went down after a practice crash last week at Glen Helen, he joined his Rockstar Energy Husqvarna 450 teammate Dean Wilson on the sidelines. With both 450 riders out, Rockstar Husky team manager Bobby Hewitt told us the team would have to get a replacement. Hewitt mentioned quite a few wild cards to us—such as factory Husqvarna riders from the GPs during a few off weekends, or former team riders. The final answer is surprising—it's Phil Nicoletti, who, up until now, was racing for Autotrader/Yoshimura Suzuki. Phil, though, was only a fill-in for the team, and fill-in roles in Lucas Oil Pro Motocross have become a specialty for the New Yorker. He was apparently able to get out of his JGR deal and is now part of the Husqvarna squad for the remainder of the summer. Nicoletti is currently seventh in 450 Class points. “I am happy to have the opportunity to finish out the Pro Motocross season with the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team," Phil said in a Rockstar Energy Husqvarna PR. "I look forward to getting on the bike and showing everyone what I have. Thank you to everyone backing me—see you at the High Point National!” No word on JGR Suzuki's next move. Nicoletti was filling in for Justin Bogle, who is back on the bike and testing, but we're not yet sure when he will return to the racetrack. Suzuki has its other 450 slot covered with the steady Weston Peick. “It has been a devastating week for all of us here on the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team," Hewitt said. "Losing Zach [Osborne] for the remainder of the season is unfortunate, but he will be back just as strong as ever. We are excited to have Phil for the rest of the Pro Motocross races and know he will mesh well with the team.”
  13. where online can I get the races this season? I saw the first 3, then nothing. thanx
  14. Maybe it's just because I'm an attention to detail guy, but can someone hand Tomac a hat that fits? About four or five times, I've seen them hand him his hat during the post-race interview (not before), then he tries to put it on, it's too big and he has to take it off and adjust it. This isn't rocket science.
  15. The boy went into warp drive at the end of the 2nd moto !! SuperFAST
  16. Just wondering if anyone thought there might be some "teamwork" involved with Musquin's pass of Filthy Phil late in the first moto ? I heard Weigandt comment the Musquin was 16 seconds behind Phil and had made up 10 seconds in one lap and passed the other six seconds in what appeared to be less than half a lap. That pass forced Tomac to ride the second moto to secure the title. Understandable that a team would do this with a title on the line but was surprised it wasn't mentioned by anyone. Remember when Musquin had a brake issue in supercross to the benefit of Dungey ? Orange or white there all KTM's to me! Congrats to Eli. I think he is only gonna pick up steam as he seems to have learned his lessons.
  17. So Steve on PulpMX said this as a additional sand National possibility. This would work and frankly could be Lommel epic. Great infrastructure as a really cool California town is right there. The state already moves the sand around to prevent peaks and the beach is far from being totally flat. The thought of going out with a dozer and shaping out a deep sand track for a weekend is fantastic and realistic and the State as the track owner already has a race on the circuit called Hangtown. Oh I want this to happen.
  18. #222 adds another 2! Red Bull KTM Factory Racing are thrilled and proud to announce that reigning MXGP number one and nine times FIM Motocross World Champion Antonio Cairoli will remain part of the team for another two years and through the 2019 and 2020 Grand Prix seasons. The 32 year old Sicilian renewed his contract on Thursday in Rome in the presence of Team Manager Claudio De Carli and KTM Motorsports Director Pit Beirer. The agreement means that Cairoli – who gave the factory their first title in the premier class of the FIM series with the KTM 350 SX-F in 2010 and delivered the KTM 450 SX-F’s first MXGP crown in 2017 – will register eleven years with the brand. The 2018 contest begins next weekend with the first round of nineteen taking place at Neuquen for the Grand Prix of Patagonia Argentina. The South American fixture will mark the beginning of Cairoli’s fifteenth term as a full-time GP rider and his ninth in Red Bull KTM colors. In a remarkable career that boasts nine titles (seven in the premier class since 2009, six with SX-F technology), 213 GP appearances, 83 career wins and 145 podiums (with 163 moto victories) Cairoli is still the reference for the sport as he bids for a record-equaling tenth championship and his first viable ‘defense’ of the No.1 status with the KTM 450 SX-F. “I’m really happy to announce this because we already made history in 2010 with the KTM 350 SX-F against the 450s and succeeded with that challenge. I feel a part of KTM because of that success and since then the company has grown a lot,” commented Cairoli. “I put in a lot of effort to bring titles and I feel very proud to be part of the company. They invest a lot and do a lot of work in development and you see the result because it is the top off-road manufacturer in the world. I’m happy to continue and to do another two years and to try for more titles. I’m fully motivated for the upcoming seasons.” “Around two years ago people were already saying that Tony was getting too old to stay at the top and I took that moment to declare that we had full trust in his skills and capabilities. He had two tough seasons but it was amazing how he bounced back in 2017 and showed that we were absolutely right,” said Pit Beirer. “It made me happy and very proud that he wanted to continue and he wants to keep pushing. I believe Tony has found the right balance in his life - personally and professionally - to keep racing and wanting to achieve. He is very passionate about it and this is why he continues to be so strong. I’m only too happy to make this strong commitment to Tony and very pleased that our MXGP story will go on. I also want to thank and pay credit to Claudio De Carli and his role. He has had a big say in the Cairoli-KTM success over the years and long may it last.” Red Bull KTM Factory Racing head to Argentina in the coming days as world champions in both categories of the FIM Motocross World Championship for the sixth time this decade. www.mxgp.com www.ktm.com | media.ktm.com Facebook | YouTube | Twitter | Instagram
  19. Looks like he's out for the rest of sx, probably wise even if he could come back earlier.
  20. Hey guys it's me again. I just want to say that I am 6 feet tall but my YZ125 is really big and I can't really put my feet down. I can touch the ground (like tippi-toe), and I can fully put one foot down if I lean. Is that okay or should I downgrade?
  21. I just recently joined the ranks of RMZ owners once again with my purchase of a new 2017 with a 270 kit. I have been to my local track tice now so I have some idea about what the bike offers. My bike is not perfect, as really no such thing as a perfect bike exists, and I know what I wish it could become. So, we are expecting a new bike for 2019. Here is what I want: Less weight, a couple more horsepower but still keeping the mid-range style of power, spring fork that is much more plush like the Yamaha fork, softer grips for certain, and that should just about do it for me.

  23. My 2017 had ran perfectly until yesterday. Last week at same track it was great, I changed the oil this week to synthetic with new filter. This week, maybe 1/2 lap at speed once warmed up and it would start sputtering/bogging/cutting out momentarily. Obviously not as it should be. The air filter was not dirty and temperatures were the same both weekends. I was guessing bad gas, which after I filled up realized it was 10% ethanol blend premium. So today I drain the tank, get good premium (no ethanol) and hoped the bike would run right. Nope. Still sputtering upon full throttle as it revs out. Runs fine at low RPM but that really does not matter. Seems to have more popping on decal too. Anybody got ideas? I am cleaning the air filter now but I doubt that was a problem.
  24. What changes would it take for you to go out and race more often? Any certain format, changes, or issues that would make you want to go race at the local track more often? For myself one major thing that would make me want to race more often is the classes. I would like to see less classes and more seat time at the race.
