    Honda XR400R (2004)


    This street-legal 2004 XR400 is a bullet-proof, trail-riding tractor, with no radiator to bash in, valves that never need regapping, and after adding a Mikuni pumper carb, the perfect trail-bike that can be brapped over logs and rocks, and ridden in whatever gear happens to be handy. And just because I love it so much, I change the oil about once a year. Starts on first kick after pumping the starter to TDC and if I can remember not to touch the throttle at all (pumper carb easily floods engine otherwise).

    Suzuki DR-Z400SM (2015)


    Great entry supermoto without the hassle of buying and converting. ton of fun to blast around town on or offroad on fire roads/single track. Not the fastest or slowest sm, but it gets the job done reliably. Mods definitely waken this bike up. Cant go wrong with this as a beginning supermoto bike.

    Perfect for what it is.

    Suzuki DR-Z400E (2001)


    Just got it. It's halfway converted to supermoto. I need to rebuild the suspension

    Yamaha WR426F (2001)


    Motor keeps going strong. Only issue I had was the output shaft splines got stripped, requiring me to split the case. This was probably due to way too many clutch ups haha

    Honda CRF250X (2005)


    Love this bike. I came off a XR650r, and the 250 x is so light and nimble in comparison. While obviously lacking some of the raw power the 650 had, the 250x pulls hard, and the suspension is night and day compared to the 650. My only real gripe is what a pain in the ass it is to remove the carburetor. Otherwise, I love this bike.

    I've had 3 of these and I can't seem to live without one :)

    Honda CRF250L (2014)


    Crazy bang for the buck in this bike. Plenty of low end torque that can be amped up even more with a few easy mods like sprockets, fuel controller and exhaust. Runs like a dream when ridden as stock. Feels like Honda could charge more, but let's not tell them that.

    such a fun fast machine. Quite a few fun mods done to it. But it is a 2006 model.

    Honda CRF250X (2012)


    It's been a fantastic bike. The only thing that I wish would have been different from the factory would be steel valves. The extra maintenance required on titanium valves just isn't worth it for the weight savings on a trail bike. Sure on the crf250r put titanium valves. But the x model is for trails mostly. Shimming the valves every 15 hours is not fun. Especially because the shims are under the bucket. Yuck.

    Spark plug threads

    Got a new spark plug for my yz450 today and it came with this little peice threaded on the top. I've never seen this on dirt bike plugs, so why did it come on this one?
  14. Like the title says. Bikes like the CRF250 and 450X and WR250F and WR450F and all others come with head lights and tail lights. They dont seem to put enough light to ride at night at all. It seems to me that being as they dont have to deal with DOT limitations on an offroad bike, they could put a nice extremely bright light on the bike and make the light actually usable. As it stands now, a head light seems like a wasted expense that adds money to the price of the bike. Does anyone know why they bother with the weak ass lights on these bikes?

  16. I cannot find a kit to do this. We don't need turn signals in Colorado. I need headlight with hi/lo beam, tail/stop light (with license plate holder), electric horn, and appropriate switches. Would like to find parts that plug in without adding new wiring harness. Anybody have ideas?

    Husaberg FS570 (2011)


    Review: Once I got it setup how I wanted it... it became the best bike I have owned. 6-speed, Fuel injected, 250lbs, 56.5 stock WHP(I have the dyno), full suspension (yes, it is identical to FE setup), hydraulic clutch, brembo brakes, and everything is made to be disassembled trackside. No complaints! People think that the range on it is bad. Most riders fill up every 100 miles and this can do that plus some on a tank. I am a little bit frustrated that there is no tripometer, There is an aftermarket switch you can get (speedo dependent.. http://www.ktm-parts.com/54814073000.html).. but i never did. Instead I bought a Trail Tech.. it is easy to setup and I got a great deal on a voyager. Trail Techs can connect right to the factory speedo sensor so that was easy and it will give you a tach too! I need to point out that everyone thinks there is a problem with parts availability.. wake up, its 2016 & we have the internet now. Here are some of the regular places I go to for parts: http://www.husabergshop.se/ (good KTM part number reference) http://www.ktm-parts.com/ (I get a lot of stuff here) http://www.gunnisonmotorsports.com/aboutus.htm http://slavensracing.com/ https://www.brpmoto.com/ http://www.enduroeng.com/ Maintenance: 1. Valve shims. You probably will have to shim the valves after the breakin.. after that, they have not moved.. 2. Oil Change frequency is no different than any other KTM/MXer. Everyone looking to go to this bike complains about oil change frequency... STOP TRYING TO COMMUTE on this thing. You easily can.. and sometimes I do... but I know that i will have to change the oil. This is not a daily commuter, it is a daily monster. There is a reason why honda civics go for 10k miles without an oil change.. they are commuter vehicles, that is their thing. If you want a commuter bike, buy a DRZ (I love my DRZs BTW). Also.. yes, motorex and KTM filters are expensive but you dont HAVE to use them. There are alternative filters however the alternate oil options that you SHOULD use are also expensive. Necessary/Recommended upgrades and Known issues: ***Dont buy a piggyback/parallel unit such as the dynojet/JD tuner/bazzaz.. I tried the JDJetting one and it was very disappointing. I still have it.. sitting in a box somewhere.. what a waste. Instead, just do the below... 1. US Model runs lean as hell stock.. .. remove the evap canister .. talk to Fritz Kadlec(the owner) and send him your ECU to flash with the competition map. This is night and day. 2. Get the timing/ignition map switch.. KTM/Berg factory is good.. or the TT Online one. Set it to 'wild' and you might as well forget about it. 3. Get a full pipe. The factory exhaust is very restrictive. I have FMF megabomb setup.. it is cheaper and has only a fraction of less gain than AK. 4. DNA Air Filter.. dont mess with the twin air and so on.. just get DNA, it is the best and is as easy to maintain as a K&N. (have to order from EU) 5. Everyone says the factory fuel pump is crap.. rumor always seems to be that it is dues to excessive heat. I am not sure I believe that. Regardless, I had a B$%^$ of a time with the pump. Bike would run awesome, then randomly die while riding. After power off/on, fuel pump doesn't prime. Replaced the pump with CACycleWorks & same thing. CA Cycleworks sent me another one for free (something about the heat index testing may not have been done on the one I received). No worries.. after getting it all back together. Similar problem. Long story short, I soldered the leads to the fuel pump on, never had an issue since. I dont know why it is good now.. just know that the bike vibrates pretty hard while under throttle. It has been almost 3 years without issue. 6. The bike is hot.. and runs hot. Use track coolant.. (watterwetter, engineice.. etc) Dont use normal fluids, it doesn't work as well. KTM makes a fan kit for it. I recommend it otherwise you will probably boil your radiator over (depending where you live). 7. Boiling over your radiator onto the road? See #7 and maybe get a motion pro or similar coolant catch canister. 8. Have some spare fasteners laying around. (I did mention this thing shakes, right?) 9. The seat is a wooden plank. There are some options from www.fishersaddlebags.com/ or seatconcepts.com/ but they are ugly as f#%@ 10. I did get a bigger rear sprocket because I just wanted more low end launch. I can still go 100 MPH easily and it pulls hard up hills through 5th now.

    another damned stator

    ****edited, updated**** this is the old issue: ****************** ****************** bought the drz august of last year. stator failed, or was failing at time of purchse. replaced stator mileage 8500 or so. today, oil changed, burnt smell from oil. milage 11968 (12000). stator has failed again. never overheated, oil and filter changed religiously at or before 1,000 miles. went for a short ride, and the battery discharged completely at some point. bump started, rode home. i've contacted rickystator to see if they'll honor the purchase, and diagnose the failure if i ship it to them at my expense. i'll update as there is progress. -aggrevated ********************** ********************** rickystator id'd the stator as their own from my emailed picture, while on the phone with me. they shipped a replacement on tuesday, and it was in my mailbox today (thursday) when i got home. no questions, no paying for postage (which I offered both ways), no problems. this, is customer service. slapped in the new stator, 12.9V key on, not running, 14V running. excellent

    Stator- Similar Replacement?

    Hey guys, Long time no see. I managed to get my blown engine out of my road legal bike and attempted to remove my flywheel. I damaged some of the copper wire in the stator doing so, and the flywheel still didn't come off with a puller. So I got my 2000 WR400 into an engine specialist (He does hill climb race builds- had an awesome 350hp quad with a CBR900 RR engine and nitrous setup). He said the stator will be shot, and that it's going to be $980 to replace a welded counterbalance bearing, fix my galled threads on the flywheel (from failed pull attempt). The piston and Nikasil sleeve were fine, but he wants to replace the piston anyway due to the hours on bike. Though I was in sticker shock I'm proceeding with this rebuild. The problem is, I've hit a brick wall finding a stator. I can't really afford $300 for a new OEMreplacement, and so far I've been turned down on re-wires. Is there any compatible stator for this bike that is drop in, or a slight mod and will be cheaper? Does anyone have one for sale? This rebuild broke my savings, and is breaking my heart since she's my favorite ride. Thanks!

    Suzuki DR650S (2015)


    Recently I sold my CRF250L due to taking a new job with a 104 mile daily commute. I again almost purchased the WR250 but I decided if highway comfort, simplicity, and displacement were my prime concerns that the WR would still not fit my needs. Out of the shop I noticed that it was idling too low and stalling quite a bit. The bike easily reached 80mph for my ride home even though at this speed the vibrations were killer. I rode on it untouched for about 2 weeks and practically paid for expedited shipping from seat concepts. My other first impression of the bike was wondering where they had time to go to home depot and replace the seat with a 4x4 post. The other complaints were the rubber mounted stock pegs that made you feel like you would slip off standing up and the cramped peg location in relation to the seat and the bars. I mean it is cramped for me at 5' 8" 29 inch inseam. Where my last bike became far more fun in the woods the DR felt... a bit much to handle. The stock tires earned their reputation of the name of deathwings being far less capable than the GP22's that came stock on the 250L, yes I missed the GP22's. The rear suspension was thankfully significantly better and only required some dampening adjustment. The front suspension comparatively to the 250L was far far far worse. If you were to mix the rear stock suspension of the 250L with the front of the 650 you would have created the most poorly suspended bike conceived by man. After going from my Racetech setup on the 250L back to whatever Suzuki calls suspension I felt a bit cheated. Now here came the real test was a 329 mile back roads ride from Austin to DFW and back. (my preferred motorcycle proving ground) The average speed limit was still 75 posted and same as last time I was glad I invested in my seat concepts low seat. The bike easily plodded along at 70 - 90 mph with little complaint or trouble minus a bit of excess arm pump and vibration in my right hand. In strong cross winds the DR650 was a bit better planted but the front end due I guess to its horrifically poorly designed nature introduced more wobble than the 250L and with tucking down in wind made the ride a bit harrowing. This go around I was shy on cash and spent my first $270 on bars, grips, seat, and peg lowering kit from JNS engineering. (I also sprung for a 16T front sprocket to mitigate vibration at high speed) I could not repeat could not have made any trip over 50 miles on the stock garbage seat without reconstructive surgery on my rear. The massive upside to this bike is the ease of work on it. A valve job for instance is 4 tools and about 3 hours of work and the best part is no shims just an old fashioned tappet adjuster. The other real test was arriving at my old stomping grounds in Decatur TX at rocky ridge. This is where the 650 showed me all of it's additional weight feeling nearly unwieldy with the exception of its lower reach to the ground. My lap times which were 28 minutes modded 32 ish minutes stock on the 250L climbed up to 36 minutes on the 650 with the mixture of nearly unusable front suspension and god awful tires. At the minimum before another dirt trip this bike will have new tires and front springs. Stock for stock on the Street/ Highway the DR650 substantially outperforms the 250L but in the dirt the 250L is a good bit better for the job. As far as modding goes however I think I can achieve near if not better performance from the 650 with less money. Right off the bat for instance front and rear suspension will run about 600 to 700 less than a Racetech setup for the 250L so time will tell if this review flips. I had about $2400 into the 250L and as of this week about $307 into the 650, even if I go all out with suspension, pipe, and pumper carb I would only be out $1300. Food for thought.

    Alright so i have a honda crf250x which had a baja road package. I removed mostly everything except the display screen and the keyed ignition switch. Yesterday i went to turn off the bike using this swith and it did not turn off!? I had to use a trigger shutoff switch which still works. I then prceeded to start it again without a problem, but when it came to turning it off, once again it did not work! (Mind you it has been running without most of the baja package fine for over a year now, just incase someone had that question) I am absolutely mistified and need some help to figure out how to get it to turn off again. Thanks! Henry
