    I have an 09 wr450 and I ride on the road a lot but I'm using dirt tires and I want supermoto type tires. They don't have to be high quality I only ride a few hours a week but I don't like tearing up my dirt tires. Thanks

    More Tire Questions

    New rider here! Have been on quads (and a Rhino) for years but just started riding bikes about six months ago. I'll be picking up my CRF250L in a week or two. I've been lurking here for a few weeks but haven't really found answers to my exact questions. About 80-90% of my riding will be offroad. Most of this will be forest roads and fairly easy trails, with some occasional steep/rocky/rutted sections. On the street I'm pretty conservative but will ride up to maybe 60mph for a stretch or two as a trail hop. Looking for a good DS tire for my offroad needs that I'll feel safe with on the road and I'm leaning toward the Dunlop D606. I'll most likely go with 13/42 gearing. Question 1 - for my type of riding is there any reason to run the D606 on the rear with something else on the front, or should I be fine with the D606 on both? If so what and why? Question 2 - Rim locks - yes or no? What is the lowest PSI I can run offroad without them? Question 3 - any suggestions on the most durable tubes? Thanks in advance for the advice. Can't wait to get my new bike can get out there!

    Kawasaki KX250F (2013)


    Making my decision to purchase this green machine was influenced by its solid results in the shootouts, as well as good reviews from local riders who had experience with the KX250F. It was purchased in the winter of 2014 as a left over 2013 model year for a great OTD price. The current 2016 KX250F is basically the same bike as the one in this review, but with some new bells and whistles. There is a start mode, adjustable foot pegs, and adjustable handle bar mounts. The “bling” on the motor is now green instead of blue, but you get the picture. Same frame, engine, and suspension. Once I got the bike home, it went into my basement to stay nice and warm for the remainder of that winter. The black triple clamps and blue anodized engine plugs really pop out as a pretty cool look for a stock bike. Although it looks nice while new, I am not a huge fan of so much black plastic. Once it scratches it looks old real quick. This is nothing a can of Maxima SC1, and a new set of graphics can’t fix. I guess I’m just old school and like the brand color to be more prevalent on the bike. As with any bike brand, you will save yourself a TON of future headache’s by doing some basic preventative maintenance before you take it out for that first ride. This not only ensures that your bike is ready for a long life of use, it also familiarizes you with how the bike is put together for future reference. One of the more common threads in the thumper talk forum’s refers to people snapping the chain adjustment bolts in the swing arm, or having major bearing issues due to lack of maintenance in the steering head for example. I striped the bike down and greased the entire chassis and wheel’s to prepare it for its first ride with Maxima water proof grease. I unplugged all of the wiring plugs on the harness, and added die electric grease to all of the connections. While the swing arm was off the bike, I removed the chain adjustment bolts to add anti seize, and grease to the threads. Once that was done I reassembled the bike and was set to ride! Engine The power of this bike really impressed me when compared to my last 250F which was a 06 Honda. I am a big fan of the new FI technology. FI gives me a lot more confidence knowing that the bike isn't going to bog when landing from big jumps. I had to adjust the valves at about 20 hours, but nothing out of the ordinary has gone wrong. I primarily ride with the white coupler on the MX tracks. The bike wakes up and produces a lot of excitement right off of idle. The power just seems to be more aggressive with this setting everywhere, and I prefer it on all the MX tracks I ride. Maybe if I went out west and rode a sun baked track, concrete hard surface I could see trying a mellower coupler. The bike gives a great tractable power in the woods with the black coupler installed. The trails around here are really tight/rocky/root's/steep, if the trails you ride are a bit faster with less rocks such as a GNCC type environment, you can leave the green or white coupler on. Suspension Handling The stock Showa SFF suspension is pretty good, although I don't have experience with the other brands to compare it too. I found that a few clicks out on the compression and rebound really calmed the front end down on the execration bumps on medium to hard terrain tracks that have a lot of small chatter bumps. At softer tracks like Southwick and even Winchester Speed Park, going in a quarter turn on the high speed, a click or 2 in from stock on the comp/rebound, and lowering the forks in the clamps so they were flush gave me great results when staying on top of the large soft rollers. I would still get an occasional weird kick or deflection from the fork from time to time however. At 20 hours I sent off the suspension to Factory Connection for are valve for my weight and ability (30+ B MX rider, 172lb). With 7 hours on the bike since I got the suspension back, I have been pleased with the changes. Using the easy to understand info sheet, I have been able to make changes based on the varying terrain and conditions with amazing results. I really notice a difference with how well the bike charges over the bumps with confidence. Doing a re-valve is one of the first things I would recommend doing with this suspension setup! The stock MX51 tires from Dunlap were not ideal for my local New England terrain, but I kept them on for about the first 7 hours. The only place I had a good feeling out of the MX51's was at Rocky Hill, CT when the track got hard packed and blue grooved late on a summer day. Unless you are riding in those conditions exclusively I would highly recommend that you change them out to Dunlap MX32's. The bike has a much better feel with those tires and I am very pleased with them so far in all conditions. Overall impression and opinion Overall, I am happy with this bike. I have really enjoyed riding it and would recommend it if you are in the market for a 250F MX bike. The light feel of the bike makes it easy to throw around. Sometimes it takes a tad more effort to initiate turns, but you quickly get used to that trait. On the other end of the spectrum, the bike is extremely stable in a straight line giving a sense of comfort which allows you to push as hard as you want to over rough straightaways. Add ons: The stock skid plate was swapped out with an Acerbic off road plastic unit which I am extremely impressed with. All it takes is 2 bolts to remove for easy cleaning and protection. Works Connection radiator braces were installed when new, along with an hour meter. I grew up in the 90's and always admired the look of the KX's of the day which influenced my purchase of the One Industries 93 retro graphic kit and seat cover. As stated above, I went with a Factory Connection re valve. Thanks for reading!

    Compared to all of the other 85 2 strokes, this thing is a rocket. The one thing that i don't like is the bottom end power. The bike just wants to not go when in the bottom end, but when i rev it in the top end it really goes.

    Easy to ride. Upright and tall riding position is good for making you visible to other motorists. Good bike for a beginner, albeit a bit heavy...

    This bike has been the best bike I've ever owned. Although in the start we had some of the worst jetting issues we've once we fixed it it's been nothing but smiles.

    Honda XR650L (2009)


    It's not all that comfortable on the street and it is heavy off road. The XR-L really shines on fire cut single track and logging roads. The torque is never lacking down low, but likes to eat tires, so it's a little difficult to hold traction out of sandy turns. Get this bike and let it be the last dual-sport you will ever need to own (just make sure you add an over-sized gas tank)

    This is the perfect bike for someone who wants to start riding a dirt bike or for someone who wants a clean reliable bike for the trails. Its never let me down not one time. Runs perfect, its very strong and will lug you all over the trails all day and the next day and so on with no problems. This bike has been garage kept and is in mint condition.
