    Changing riding style

    Hey guys. has anyone ever had to change their style of riding? Weird question I know but I’m fed up with constantly injuring my right knee. Seems to be the first thing that hits the ground and now I’m rehabbing from a second acl rupture. Thought maybe I could change my style... my problem (I think) is that my legs are longer than average and my right leg comes off the peg automatically whenever I get of balance. Thinking maybe I need to stand up more or something. random I know. cheers!
  2. Round #4 of the National Enduro circuit will return to VA this year. The promoter was convinced to bring an enduro back to VA after the success of the first one in thirty year. Dragon's Back National Enduro will be at Oak Ridge Estate, located in Arrington, VA. A beautiful estate with incredible riding terrain. Sign-up starts soon!!! http://www.nationalenduro.com/events...o-arrington-va Love the riding at this property.

    Big Bore one hundreds .....

    I'm looking to find the e-address for the 'TB' cylinder's I've seen on some hopped-up XR's. I have a BBR set-up. but fear I will be loosing them as a source for my XR100. I wanted to get a set of the valve springs ( from BBR) and those titanium spring retainers. They sure help the engine to turn over easy. Thanks for the help, I'm going to try a 27mm carb and see if it helps. Bruce
  4. Not long ago we were able to meet 6D Helmets' Co-Founder, Bob Weber during a media day at Cahuilla Creek MX park just outside Temecula, California hosted by InsideLine. We were able to discuss a little history, the details behind their revolutionary technology & what makes it different, advice on finding the right helmet, and what might be next for 6D all in Bob's own words. Co-Founder Bob Weber Explaining 6D's Patented ODS System ThumperTalk: How did 6D come about? What year? Bob Weber: I believed I had an idea worth developing to improve the capability of the helmet and better protect the human brain when subjected to oblique angle impacts in 2011. At that point, I contacted a good friend and engineer Robert Reisinger to help develop the technology. This process took us nearly 2 years. After prototype testing in an independent laboratory in Los Angeles, we were certain that we had a winning technology and could benefit the market with an improved helmet. It wasn’t so much a hole in the market we saw, but a massive development in how the helmet could be improved from an energy management and safety aspect. We sold our first helmets in 2013. ATR-2 'Circuit' from the 2019 Spring Collection ThumperTalk: Since the launch of 6D Helmets in 2013 there's been A LOT of helmet technology thrown into the market. So much so, it can be confusing for the consumer. What should a consumer look for (in technology) when purchasing a new helmet? Bob Weber: Today, helmets are much improved over the traditional designs of only a few years ago. So educating oneself on the various technologies out there should be the number one objective of the consumer. Riders, team managers, and parents should do their homework and learn about the different technologies available from the various brands out there, and how they differentiate from each other before they purchase. Head protection is about safety first, and should out-weigh any particular brand loyalty, cool graphic, or specific helmet design. ThumperTalk: Explain how Omni-Directional Suspension (ODS) works? And how is it so different to the standard style of helmets with EPS? Bob Weber: Simply put, the inner liner (much like an inner helmet) is uncoupled from the wearer’s head and can compress and shear within itself under impact conditions. This capability can dramatically reduce energy transfers to the brain from impacts at all velocities, and all impact angles. 6D’s ODS technology: Uncouples the outer surface of the helmet from the wearer’s head Dramatically improves low-threshold energy mitigation for both linear and angular accelerations Has less constraints based on the shape of the human head Is more tunable at the manufacturing level (defined by testing) Provides active suspension of the inner liner (6-Degrees of Freedom) Cutaway helmet showing the proprietary systems ThumperTalk: Since 6D came on the scene in 2013, it has started a kind of 'arms race' among helmet manufacturers for “new technology”. What are some certifications and testing standards that the consumer should be looking for when shopping for a quality helmet? Bob Weber: Actually, there are no standards currently established to help guide the consumer when exploring angular acceleration force and low-threshold energy compliance. This will take time and in general, the governing bodies are slow to respond. The FIM has instituted a new standard for closed course road racing in Europe that was adopted in June of this year. They also have an off-road standard in development, but currently there is no date established for homologation requirements. At 6D, we’ve been testing for these dynamics longer than anyone. We started in 2011 developing the ATR-1 and established a testing protocol that we conduct on top of the US DOT and European ECE standards. Our method establishes testing starting with low-velocity impacts, measuring both linear and angular acceleration performance, and then climbs at controlled velocities all the way up to the maximum certification velocities set by the regulating bodies. 6D helmets are certified to the US DOT, European ECE 22.05, ASTM F3103 and UK ACU standards. Also, worth mentioning here, 6D does not make different helmets for different markets because of standards. "We make one helmet, which exceeds the required standards in the US and all global markets, and sell that helmet everywhere"- Bob Weber ThumperTalk: How do you know when it is time to replace your helmet? What are some things to look for or best practices can you share? Bob Weber: Your helmet is a consumable device. It is designed to crush and yield when subject to impact force of some level of significance. After any moderate to severe crash you should inspect your helmet for damage, stress, or cracks in both the EPS material inside, and the shell surface. It is a good idea to have your dealer assist if you are unfamiliar with this process as damaged EPS is sometimes difficult to identify. Also, if you are competing on a regular basis, 2 to 4 times a month for 8 or 12 months out of the year, you are going to wear out a helmet and it should probably be replaced. Liners get played out, EPS compresses, and parts may be damaged by roost, crash, or poor handling and service. If there is none of that going on, your helmet may provide you 5 years or more of great service. ThumperTalk: What's next for 6D? Bob Weber: We are preparing to launch our new ATS-1R street helmet in July. We’ve put a lot of work into this helmet updating the technology and improving fit and features for the rider. The ‘1R is getting “Advanced ODS” similar to what is in the new ATR-2, but without the multi-impact capability. It’s also lighter, has improved shield fit and function, and better fit when putting on and off. Especially for people with larger heads where we were pretty tight before. We also have a couple of cycling helmets in development and pretty exciting project going with a multi-impact helmet for another market. Watch for a 6D and FXR collaboration this fall as well. These helmets should be available in August from FXR. **ThumperTalk would like to thank Bob & 6D Helmets for sitting down with us and talking helmets
  5. Let's see some course marking gear and tricks. I have seen people use satchel/quivers/wtf to carry lath and flagging, flagging on clothes pins, and that's about it. I carry rolls flagging on my the front straps of my pack, but that's about the only trick I have at the moment. I am just getting ready to go gather up some course and I am going to be trying to rig up an old back pack for lathe and flagging. If it works I will take a picture. I have been trying to discourage the use of quads for courses marking to avoid the temptation to widen single track. I want to see some of you alls stuff for doing the task.
  6. Hey guys! My name is Aaron Glean-Sealey I am going to talk about the Physical aspect of dirt bike riding and why it’s necessary that we test our selves OFF the bike. If we want to excel in racing we should be constantly looking to find gaps and holes in our fitness that may be affecting us on the bike. Just think about your race day ... you TEST yourself against other racers and measure your performance. You ask yourself: How were my starts? How was my corner speed? How did I feel on the bike? Then you pin point what you need to work on for the next race…This is nothing new, but riders are failing horribly at this on the fitness side because they don’t know how to assess themselves physically. The common approach is going to the gym, or hopping on the bicycle, maybe doing a group fitness class etc. This is called exercise -- doing physical activity for the effect it produces in that instance. This is NOT “training” for your sport. This is NOT “Race Prep” … Now... Yes, this can Improve your fitness. For sure it’s better than nothing. Yes, I want all riders to be healthy individuals...But! If your focus is improving your performance on the bike, then you cannot be spinning your wheels with random workouts. When I train riders, we start by doing a full assessment to identify their physical strengths and weaknesses and what their current fitness capacity is in relation to where it needs to be to excel in their races. If you have any questions Post in the comments or Pm me

    Battery Problems?

    Sup guys so im new to this dirtbike world, bought a new 2018 crf 250 r when i Got it at the dealer the battery was dead so they supposebly put a hot one in and finally turned it on so i took it home about a 2 hour drive and the bike would not turn on again. So i charged the battery and finally made it run again and rode about an hour then it kept turning on fine, then i let it sit for about an hour and it wouldnt fire up on the first try had to give it a little gas and finally it started up, but supposebly you should not give gas to these electric start bikes???so about 2 days later I went back to try and turn it on and nothing again it would just try to start it and nothing till the battery died again so there I go again to charge it and finally turns on again? Does this have to go on every time i let the bike sit for couple days? Is it normal or somethings wrong? Man its probably a dumb question but im new to this so any tips would help!

  9. Hi All, Looking at the current ATV offroad racing world, the 450 class still leads the way. With Yamaha being the only manufacturer currently offering a 450cc sport racing ATV, how long till racing starts taking a hit. I haven't heard any rumors of any of the other manufacturers getting back into the game. Without an influx of new technology and new ATV's to purchase, I feel that its only a matter of time until the big series' (GNCC) start taking a hit. There are only so many 450's out there and keeping them up and running especially for the rough running of an offroad series seems like it would be a losing battle. Props to Yamaha for keeping the segment alive for now. It just bothers me when there is literally only one player if you want to buy a new machine. Do you guys feel that sport ATV racing is on the way out? Do you guys anticipate a rebound with manufactures getting back into the field? Is it just a matter of time till sport ATV racing is done, and everything has moved onto SXS racing?
