  1. Hey guys new to the forum. Question is my sons riding 2016 kx 65 anyone know where I can buy used or new fox or ohlins rear shock. My suspension guy is telling me they are no longer making them and we would like to at least give some sort of a battle with those ktm's without buying 1 my son has green in his veins.
  2. Hey guys, I am looking at buying a KDX 250. I'm not sure what year exactly because owner said it was 1985 but it has a front disc brake which the 85 did not have so I assume it's a little newer... is there a newer KDX 250 motor that is a bit better that can be swapped directly in? I like the sound of the motor in the 93' KDX 250 Would it be better to swap in a KX 250 motor? And would the plastics of a KX fit?
  3. I have a 99 kx 250 that needs a cylinder. I need to know if a 94 kx 250 cylinder is compatible with the 99 model assuming I use the 94 power valves? the bidding ends in a few hours

    1999 kx100

    Just curious. How come these bikes don’t use fuel filters? Being out in OHV parks, dirt roads and ect. I started to think about maybe installing one. Do you guys/girls know of any pros or cons to this?
  8. Today I want to shift gears, open the floor for discussion, and talk about the state of dirt biking as it relates to the bikes we buy, ride, and maintain. In my relatively short existence, a number of things have happened in the industry which has been interesting to see. A few examples, which are not by any means exhaustive of all that has gone on, include the emergence of the four-stroke power plant, electronic fuel injection, improved tire technology, electric bikes, and the development of air forks. On a more micro-level we’ve seen improvements to materials, new manufacturing processes, and coating processes which have allowed ever increasing performance. As a fellow rider and someone who has no bias or stake when it comes to manufacturers and product offerings, I’d like to hear your thoughts as they relate to today’s machines. My question to you is a simple one, are your needs as a consumer being met by today’s manufacturers and bikes? What aspects of today’s machines do you love and what are pain points for you? If you could do things your way, what would you change? Are there machine variants that aren’t being offered? Leave a comment below that addresses these questions or share your historical perspective! I look forward to your responses. Thanks and have a great week! - Paul https://www.diymotofix.com/

    lorettalynn The Post-Regional Report

    What’s up ThumperTalk readers! I’m back with an update from this past weekend at the Southeast Loretta Lynn’s Regional Championship at MillCreek MX as well as some thoughts going into Loretta’s prep. When I say that it was a long weekend, I mean that for more than just one reason! Between the drama of Open Pro Sport, 10 long and hard-fought motos, and some personal strifes, I was ready to leave the track with my tickets in hand. Of course, at the end of the day, I got what I went there to get… tickets to the ranch. With that being said, I will be going to Loretta’s in the 250A and College (18-24) classes. Before I start, I just want to say how awesome it was to return to a high-profile race and be welcomed back by good people as well as fellow competitors. While Motocross is a highly competitive atmosphere, we all like to see each other in good health. Loretta Lynn's SE Regional Championship at MillCreek MX, Photo my Martha @ MEPMX While there was some foul play among the races in the Open Pro Sport class, in the form of riders jumping the gate, leaving us to run 4 full motos instead of 3; I certainly did not make things easy on myself in most my race scenarios. I was trying to reacquaint myself with the old scenario of a full gate with some of the top racers in the class. It is very different racing local A races compared to racing almost 40 guys who are gunning for the top 6 positions in order to guarantee their spot at one of the most prestigious motocross races in the world, and they will do almost anything to get there. It took a few motos to get myself together, all the while working my way through the pack and making some rookie (but costly) mistakes. As far as speed goes, the lap times don’t lie… the speed was there, despite racing a 250 against 450s on a track that eats horsepower and will allow you to go as fast as you want as long as you have the cajones to twist the throttle. That’s why it’s one of my most favorite tracks of all time! However, in this sport, if you aren’t winning, there’s always a story. I will note though, it’s been since November of 2015 that I’ve been on an MX gate drop like that. That reality hit me pretty hard sometime this past weekend. However, I am proud of myself for gaining tickets in the A class, only riding for 3 months after a year off, in one regional compared to others who run two and three regionals to gain their ticket. Loretta Lynn's SE Regional Championship at MillCreek MX, Photo my Martha @ MEPMX There were things I needed to learn about my riding, some things that I needed to have reinstalled in my mind about racing at the top level, and things that I need to focus on going forward. I believe “reinstalled” is an appropriate word because I knew going into the race what I needed to do, but there were things that I forgot, as far as the level of importance. Probably the biggest thing is the importance of the start. At the top level of amateur racing, the top racers are all very close together as far as speed, usually within a second or two. If you get caught in a group of guys on the start, the top racers are already a few seconds ahead by the time you are able to make your moves. The start is the only place you can pass 41 other guys in a few seconds. While many already know this, understanding it is another thing… the race can be won or lost in the start. While I didn’t exactly nail all my starts, something I’ve always seemed to do well with is first-lap intensity. It’s easier to pass when racers are out-of-sorts compared to when they are comfortable, have a rhythm, and are using the main lines. I will give credit where credit is due and say thanks to Alex and Mr. Dan Frye for that valuable information. Going into Loretta’s prep time, I know where I stand, how to improve, and how I plan to make myself better. My costly mistakes from the weekend help shed light on what needs to change and the direction I need to go. I am a firm believer in learning from every experience. I was rusty! But I got the job done and continue to do what many never achieve for the 10th year. Something that may change however, is my path. Like I said in the first blog, nothing is certain in the world of Motocross. Stay tuned for more!

    Clutch might be bad

    Hey, I have a question. But first let me tell you that I am new to dirt biking, so I don't know anything. I purchased a 2001 YZ 125 in October and the seller said that he just changed the Piston and Clutch. I took it out in Gorman (OHV Riding Area) and like I said I am new, so I kept stalling the bike because I was learning and just let go of the clutch. But then when my dad got on, he said it is my fault for just letting go of the clutch lever, but also the clutch plates are a little bad. I can start the bike, let the clutch out 90%, and ride. Like shouldn't it start to move when I am half way of letting go of the clutch lever? I've seen videos of people holding their clutch lever half way and are moving 10-15mph. I can ride it perfectly fine now... But just wondering, what's wrong with it?
  12. so i can trade my 04 yz250f for a 2002 rm125 i ride mostly all trails. i am tired of my 4 stroke because it's nickle and diming me. i have a few questions about the RM. How is the reliability on 02 rm125/ Your opinions of bike Will the rm125 be easier to maintain than my yz250f? What problems will pop up on this bike or common problems, what should i ask the seller about the bike?

    2017 vs 2018 Kx250f

    Hey guys, I am looking into a new kx, just curious, I have looked into the 2017s and all the reviews say that the linear power is quite boring. I am coming off of a 2010 Kx250f carbureted so I like the snappy hit of the carb however I need a new bike to keep up with racing. The reviews on the 2018s all talk about all the updates on the 18 but there isn’t any mention on the power compared to the 17. My question is, is it really worth paying more for an 18 or getting a cheaper 17. Which one do you guys own and what do you think about them? I was thinking of getting a 17 and putting a vortex ignition on it. Do you reckon this is a better idea than getting a 2018? Thanks.

  15. So I'm looking for some pivot levers for my clutch and hand brake on my '99 KX 250, I found these ones on amazon that say they will fit an '00 to '04 kx250, do you guys think these would fit my '99? if not do you know any that I can buy online, Im looking for green ones specifically, Thanks. https://www.amazon.com/MZS-2000-2017-2001-2017-2000-2005-2000-2004/dp/B01E6XQDFM/ref=wl_mb_wl_huc_mrai_1_dp
  16. I'm around 5'0 and I ride a ttr-90. Of-course it is wayyy to small for me anymore, and I've been looking at getting a new dirtbike. I was thinking of a kx-65, but I was looking into people saying they out-grow it too quickly. Anyways, I was thinking of a kx-80 too. Which would fit me better?

    2008 Crf 450r bearing out?

    Hey! My name is Kyler. So recently my bike overheated like 3 times, then finally one day it quit on me. After draining the oil, it turns out there's shredded metal everywhere. So I tore it all down. Now I'm not sure whats the problem. So far all that I found is the little rectangular reed valve was missing 1 out of 2 screws, and around that area down there is where I found the most of the shredded metal. also, I'm not sure if its a problem but the actual shaft on the crank has the slightest bit of play. Mainly I just don't know what to replace so please help! I don't want to put it all back together and not replace the main prob. Thanks in advance!

    Front Fork Slack

    My question is in regards to my front forks for the second-hand bike I just purchased. I have been looking all over the internet for the last three days to find out a similar issue to mine, so I know where to start. When ever the bike is off the stand there is a excessive amount of slack in the front forks from the point where I pull the handlebars up to fully extend the forks to the point where the settled without out my weight on them. The issue is that there is virtually no tension in the process. The vertical free play/slack is far too much. Low oil, Shock springs worn, a need for spacers? I don't see any signs of leaking on the bushings. Compared to my other bike it is nowhere near the same. Im just wondering where to start and to look to help fix this because I can't find any troubleshooting that relates to this issue or has a term for this excessive vertical free play in the forks . The bike is a 2004 KX100. Any Info would be much appreciated. Thanks
  20. I know, I know...it's not fair, but sometimes you gotta remind your boys who's the boss. Plus, racing is just plain fun. Had a blast out with my boys riding today. The bikes in the video are a 2007 Honda CRF70F, and a 2002 Kawasaki KLX300R.
  21. In your opinion, which Factory Team would you race for? -Suzuki -Honda -Kawasaki -Yamaha -Husqvarna -KTM -Also, 2 stroke or 4 stroke?

    KX125 at Glamis

    I am wondering how a kx125 will do at at Glaims. I am 14 years old 5 foot 4 inches and 100 pounds. I will have a paddle tyre in the back too.
  23. I just bought a 2008 WR250FX a while back and am getting it street legalized soon. I would really like to paint my rims either black (to go with my blue spoke covers) or blue. I would like to do this at home as I do not have enough money for aftermarket rims. I have looked into powdercoating, anodizing, and dual/single stage automotive paint so far. (Powdercoating looks like it might chip during tire change and there is not a local spot for anodizing and it looks expensive) Does anyone have any suggested methods or ideas for painting them at home? Do not tell me spray paint! Also please do not talk me out of it because I'm hard set on NOT buying new rims! Also we have a very capable, controlled, and large work space so any challenges shouldn't be an issue. Give me your thoughts please! Kind of stuck!

    New member, looking for a part...

    Hey all, new member here. I've had my KLX650C for about two months now and have somehow managed to break all 6 tabs on the rear hub/coupling. I purchased a KLR hub only to find out the spacing and bearing aren't the same. Does anyone here have one they are willing to get rid of? I cant find one on the internet anywhere. Thank you and I appologize in advance if any posting rules were broken in the making of this post.
