  1. I would like to preface this by saying that this might be somewhat of a rookie question, but never the less I am in search of answers. For some time now I have noticed that the front brake on my 2003 450 EXC has been fairly squeaky when coming to stops, even though I have hardly put any miles on the bike since I installed new pads several months ago. Upon closer inspection to the front caliper I noticed that the outside stationary brake pad does not appear to clear the thin channel located at the top of the brake pad for the rotor to pass through (picture provided). I would also like to add that I have an extra front caliper for my model KTM that also appears to have the same "issue", and this caliper is also the one I will be posting photos of, instead of the one currently mounted on the bike. So, is it possible that this is the source of the banshee screech my front brake seems to emit whilst coming to a stop? If so, does anyone know of any fixes for this issue, or is it something that I just shouldn't be worrying about? As a final side note, the only direct, let's call it, "performance" issue I have noticed is that my front brake is unable to keep the front wheel locked whenever I attempt to do burnouts. I could basically be squeezing the lever so hard that I feel like it's going to snap off in my hand, and the front wheel will either slowly roll, or sightly hop. Thanks to all in advance for any help or wisdom given, it is very much appreciated.
  2. i have a ktm 450 2010 and a Kawasaki kx450f and need new spokes to both of them in the rear, the dealer did not know if ktm spokes do fit on the kawa aswell. problem is that he only had spokes in stock for ktm machines. anyone here knows the answer of this one ? both have stock 19" rear wheels .
  3. So basically. I got this yuuuuggeee RM250 in a trade. It is a really nice bike. I really didn't know much about it when I got it, except that it was very pretty and extremely fast. Anyways, I look it up and find that its the only year of air cooled engine w/ mono shock suspension. Anyways I have been storing the bike ever since on inside of my house and I think its time to make some space. The bike deserves to be ridden more... Honestly, I am a little afraid of how fast it is! And in case you can't tell where this is going... I decided to sell the bike and thought maybe you would be interested. I know its not from the best era or the coolest bike you've ever seen... But it is clean, fast, and pretty dang rare. If you appreciated that I didn't just throw this at you and say BUY MY BIKE and instead wrote a semi-thoughtful write up about it and then hooked in the advertisement at the end. You should check out the bike on Ebay. Ill put the link below. It deserves a good home. Someone like you. Someone like your son who's birthday is coming up. If someone wants it come and get it. No reserve, I sell to highest bidder no questions asked. I will help with shipping, provide more info, etc at jonahdeich@gmail.com. The bike is located in Savannah, Georgia http://www.ebay.com/itm/222475245091?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
  4. Ok so we have a thread in Northwest that is for helmet cam vids, well lots of mine are shot with my mobile, so sort of rules that out, also we have Short Attention Span Theatre, but those are 45 seconds max. Here in the Pics and Vid section there is a thread on Technical Trails, but the Secret Training Ground has lots of technical bits, these climbs are semi-technical. The more we ride them, the easier they get. There are also lots of short, technical spots generally steep with roots but those are all short sections. I will post up vids from the Secret Training Ground. If you have some Secret location vids, post em up, but it has to be a secret location. No telling where you're at. Backstory here... we keep making little climbs that are more difficult than the last one. First Hill, No Way, Rock Face, then OhEmEffGee, each time we're thinking man, not sure we'll get up it, then after wearing it down a bit we start to make it up on a regular basis. Cheers. Latest- hot off the press from the last 3-4 weeks. Rock Face Revisited bit is from last weekend. Super muddy slick (not as slick as wet clay though)... https://youtu.be/ZldYXmPAy9E
  5. Hey everyone! I went out to the desert last weekend and decided to record it. We rode mostly tight sand washes. Check it out! PS Turn up the resolution and the cameras were faced too far down but I tried to make it work
  6. This topic has likely been covered before but I figure my situation is a little different. Im 25 and weight 155lbs. Currently I've got about a years worth of consistent motocross experience under my belt on a 2008 CRF250r. In addition to that I have about 3+ years of street riding experience on various 450cc supermotos'. My question is, when would it be appropriate for me to bump from my 250cc up to a 450cc for motocross? Obviously a years worth of experience on a 250 means I haven't squeezed that bike of its full potential yet but recently I rode a friends yzf450 for a few laps at the mx track and was blown away how much more planted it felt compared to my 250. I'm guessing it was the increase of torque and possibly the small weight difference that made it feel that way. I felt very comfortable on the 450 but at the same time I was taking it easy and could also feel how much of a monster it really was on the mx track and would not be as forgiving as my 250. It may sound stupid but I almost felt safer being able to get over jumps not having to wind the bike out for all it had like some jumps on my 250. Right now im recovering from a broken foot after a pretty bad crash at the beginning of the month so it's going to be a while before I ride again anyways. The other reason I feel inclined to get a 450 is because in addition to riding mx, I would really like another supermoto. You just don't supermoto 250cc bikes its just not worth it. So at the end of the day, should the 450 on the mx track best be left to the much more experienced, or would a rider like me with a year under my belt get along well with a 450. I haven't ridden any of the newer models but I think there is a button to switch fuel maps to tame the bike down a bit. That would probably help the transition some. What are your thoughts? Thanks in advance!
  7. Hey everyone, I just installed the GYTR FMF slip on exhaust today and got a few different problems. First thing I noticed was after turning the bike off, the exhaust started smoking out the back. Not a whole lot, but a noticeable amount of white smoke. When installing the exhaust I replaced the header gasket, and I also but Ultra Black Sealant on the slip on part of the exhaust. I'm assuming I used the wrong type of gasket sealant and that's what burning and creating smoke? It doesn't smell like burning oil or coolant, kinda smells like burning plastic if I had to describe it. Not very worried about this though, I guess i'll just let it all burn off or if it doesn't stop smoking, I will take it back off and try to clean it and use the right stuff. My big problem is the amount of backfiring; It only happens on deceleration. I did a quick check for exhaust leaks right after installing and didn't find any. I will do a more thorough check tomorrow. The exhaust that was on it before was a super heavy Lexx exhaust that was really quiet and probably very restrictive. Also the current map set is for super smooth and slow acceleration, all 0's and -'s (See picture below of the map). I'm assuming this smooth of a map is where my backfiring problem is? This is making me run lean correct? How safe is it to run the bike like this? Because I need to ride the bike tomorrow and my tuner won't come in until later in the week. Picture of my current map (middle one) & video of crazy backfiring:
  8. Should I buy a 2002 YZ426f OR a 2009 CRF250R? The YZ has alot of extras and looks to be in pretty good shape, the owner used it alot, but took care of it. The CRF is in EXCELLENT condition and looks great Both bikes are for sale at about $1500, but i should be able to talk it down a bit I'm having a difficult time deciding between the two, I'd be sacrificing power for age and vice versa, idk any insight would be helpful. Thanks
  9. Hi guys, I want to get something long term to play around on the weekends out in the fields (no MX racing) and something that wont bore me to death as time goes on. I have never owned a dirt bike yet alone any motorbike, I rid a CBR600 sports bike once which was my friends and I loved it but thats pretty much my whole 2 wheel experience So I narrowed my choices down to a brand new 250F or a 450F. I dont want to get a 2 stroke new because i'll have to wait for the order to come in, the 450Fs and 250fs are always in stock and as for a used dirt bike, thats crossed of my list, where I live they are owned mostly by kids who never take care of them properly especially 4 strokes. So yeah, 250F or 450F? I'm buying brand new so I can't upgrade to a better bike, once I buy, its gonna be with me for a while I've had people telling me a 450F is fine for beginners as long as I take it easy, where as some told me to stay away and get a 250F I'm 200lbs btw What do you guys think I should do?
  10. A 2003 yz450f or a 2006 rmz 450? And how do the bikes compare in general? Just finished a yz basketcase, now starting on the rmz.
  11. 06kx250F627

    Engine swap

    I have a 2006 kx250f and was wonderingly if I could swap the engine for a 450f. Does anyone know if I could do this?
  12. I was going to change the oil on my dirt bike and i was going to use Rotella T Triple protection but the only one I could find was Rotella t4 15-40w. I think its the same thing but I just wanted to make sure. Can anyone confirm this?
  13. Here lately, probably the past month or so, my 2012 wr450 started running a lot hotter than usual. It happened right around the time I put some header wrap on my head pipe so I thought that was the issue and left it at that. Well I deliver for a company on my bike and its been warming up here in texas the past few weeks ~80's I decided to take the header wrap off because it felt unbearable riding with how hot this thing is now. So I take the wrap off and the bike still gets stupid hot stupid fast. Now when I say stupid hot I don't mean boiling but temps, but way higher than it used to in a shorter amount of time. Before this issue it could be 60 degrees or so outside and my trail tech fan would never kick on. Ever. The fan temp was set to trigger at 175. Now even when it is this cold out (60's) it can hit 175 in maybe a mile of easy riding. I ride on the street so it's constant air flow pretty much all of the time. The bike does have Engine Ice in it and it is full in the rad and appropriate amount in the reservoir. I started it this morning to see if the coolant was circulating with the cap off and the level would kind on bubble (probably not the right word for it) but it would kind of go up and down maybe a half inch or so every second or two. So I assume the pump is working as it should? Not sure but i've got a buddy who is bringing his stock water pump over and I am going to drain and clean my coolant system with white vinegar and water 50/50 to clean and flush all the junk, if there is any, out of the system and then try his pump setup. I checked my oil and it doesn't look milk shaked inside but I do plan on changing the oil tonight to see if there is anything going on in there which will tell me if impeller shaft seal is bad etc etc. Also, When it's in the garage and running my temps on my GYTR tuner says the engine temp is 150/160's when the trailtech fan kit is saying 180's but once the bike is off they seem to equalize out within 2 or so degrees from eachother. Not sure if that tells me anything but this is far all I know off the top of my head currently, If things change or I remember I will update the thread. The bike has 320 hrs on it probably 98% street riding as this is my daily driver. It is not losing coolant, leaking or burning. Valves are all in spec, checked last night (for the first time lmao) GYTR ECU and FMF powercore4 pipe Oil should be good but I am going to do it anyways tonight. Coolant getting flushed and cleaned along with a "new" water pump this evening aswell. If anyone has some tips or things to check for etc let me know. Thanks in advance!
  14. Anyone switch from a 450 to a 2017 or newer TC250 or 250SX? I have a 08 CRF450 I like a lot but since the new Husky/KTM redesign in 2017 I have been thinking of making the switch back to 2 strokes. I am 37 with 2 kids and mainly ride at practice tracks and maybe one race a year...so I dont ride competitive but love ripping on tracks. So I was looking for some feedback/input from anyone who rode a new Husky/KTM.
  15. Hey my buddy has a honda crf450r and started making noises recently, or a while ago, we thought nothing of it, thought maybe the chain or something, the bikes always coming up with problems, but they got louder, and so he stopped riding it and is gonna look into it. Does anyone have any ideas what it is? To be specific, it sounds like a clanking that sounds like if your chain is loose, but in the top end like where the cams or piston is. Any idea?
  16. Need help or advice on picking a bike. My last bike was an 04crf250. So been off the bike a few years. My dilemma is a 2009 rmz450 or a 2012 kx450f or maybe even a 2014 yzf450. RMZ is from a dealership. Was owned and maintained by an apprentice who works there at the shop so I'm sure maintainence was kept up on it, however the guy is a racer so that bike has been through a lot however taken care of. Guy said the bike practically has a new engine and does have some mods, fmf full system, rekluse clutch and forks have been revalved for I believe 180 or 200lb rider, I am 150. And other small stuff. I think price OTD I can get it for is $3K or $$3200. 2012 kx450f. Don' know much about but seems bike has been taken care of decently. Has KYB suspension. No mods really. Just hand guards and pro taper handle bar. And that's really it. Guy said he is pretty firm on $3800 but I'm sure will take $3600 And then there is a 2014 YZF450 that I've had my eye on but don' really want a Yamaha unless someone can change my mind. Looks like it' in decent condition and guy is asking $3700. Any pros or cons to these bikes or personal experience that you guys can share? Thanks!
  17. We have been going on adventures every other weekend riding everything Michigan has to offer within a few hour distance of where we live. This is a short one of us playing around on the Moss Lake trails in Rapid River MI. It's not a bad trail, a little choppy for how many roots are on the trail but none the less fun as hell!
  18. Was surprised to see this thread doesn't exist yet (that I could find), so I guess I'll lead us off. Oh course these are things I've done over the last few weeks, not just today Still have a few more mods planned.
  19. I was wondering if the is a way to de tune a 450 or some modifications that you can or people down to make a 450 motor more reliable?
  20. This popped on a local Craigslist this morning and I went ahead and put a deposit on it for the guy to take down the ad and let me get the cash together. 50 hrs, 1100 miles, comes with a steering damper, guts seat, taller (yeah, taller - he's trying to find the old ones) sprockets, shock bleeders and a nice foldy mirror. $4,750. Very clean in person, a few nicks. Drove it, man the last big thumper I drove was a Husky 610 back in like 2003 - really powerful, night & day, maybe that was weight or just me getting older, I don't know. I do know I'll need to lower the seat height 1 to 2 inches. Onto questions: -Lowering seat height a huge deal? It looks pretty straightforward with the adjuster. -Dude will knock off $250 without the damper. I've never owned one. Any thoughts? -My commute is 10 min with a short 5-mile highway burst - I would be riding to work maybe once a week. Chasing around gravel roads and trails maybe 4 days a month. Not a whole ton of really intensive or dirty riding. Given this usage, thoughts about the maintenance interval? -Lastly, this seems like a heck of a deal with the hours on it but made it hard for me to valuate. Sound too good to be true / just about right / or should I have some wiggle room? Thanks all, appreciate all of the good reads on the site.
  21. Need help ppl. Got a 2008 ktm 450 xc-f and I had trouble with the clutch not engaging properly. I changed the master cylinder( it was leaking/ broken) and the bike still stall when I put in first gear. Is it the slave cylinder? Or do I need a new clutch? Thanks Alex
  22. Like I said I have a 2008 KTM 450 exc. I live in Southern California along the coast in Dana Point. Riding is almost entirely all desert. So far average altitude is maybe 1-3k pretty much sea level to about 5000 ft is where I normally take it. Whenever I blip the throttle when stationary the bike dies. I’m trying to put some money into the bike to release some more power. I’ve gotten lots of recommendations: jd jetting, new exhaust system, gearing, suspension etc. so I want to get this throttle problem fixed with the right parts. Anybody care to point me in the right direction if jetting or jetting/exhaust is the problem for me ?
  23. hey guys my kx 450 is having a probem,it runs just fine when i first start it and until it gets hot.it seems to cut fuel and just stop accelerating,it does this for a second and cuts back on .m almost sure its not a fuel problem because it would happen when it isnt hot too,ive replaced all 4 valves, springs,and piston and adjusted the valves my mechanic says its the coil but i just want to verify.any ideas?
  24. Yes, I am asking what to buy, I’m sure there are a million other threads with a very similar question, but before bashing me for posting, please understand that although I am talking about the whole topic, I want to focus a large portion of this post on the expense of the two bikes, mostly the repair expense. Now that we’ve got that cleared up, I’m an intermediate rider, bought a brand new 2018 250XC last year and love the bike. I race hare scrambles, but lately I’ve been riding MX a lot and thinking about trying a new 4 stroke and getting something that will handle the track a bit better (suspension-wise). I’ve been told the 350’s are about as expensive as they get to repair when it comes to the engine, but I don’t truly know what the case is. Does anyone have some round-about numbers, any comparisons to the expense of the 450? Yes, I know the 450 costs a few hundred more up front, I don’t care about that, just looking at maintenance. Also, I’m worried that being used to the 250 2 stroke (and I ride with the red spring in, I like an aggressive feel) I will have a hard time getting used to a 350F, kind of like getting on a 250F where I feel like I’m pounding on the throttle to keep it moving. Is this anything to be worried about? In every other way I lean towards 350, being a 2 stroke guy, liking the lighter-weight, more nimble-feeling bikes.
  25. I have a 2016 Honda CRF450R, and I’m looking buy a set of warp 9 rims off of a 2005 CRF450R.... I was wondering if anyone knows if theyd fit? And If anyone kinda knows like a compatability chart for the year models
