  1. Balancing front and rear wheels makes a HUGE difference on the highway! 👍 Pick-up a pack of stick-on-weights from Harbor Freight or your favorite moto shop. I stick 'em inside the rim (in the dish), tape them down, and put the rim strip over them. And, it doesn't seem to make tire changes any more difficult. Balance it on the axle by spinning the wheel (vertically) until it stops. Add weight on the top side (typically opposite the rim lock) and repeat until the wheel stops in the same place. Gravity pulls the heaviest part of the wheel to the bottom. If it's way out of balance, you can feel it on the stand/bike as you spin the wheel. The wheel will visibly speed up and slow down as that heavy spot "goes up" and "goes down". A perfectly balanced wheel will have no heavy spot - Gravity pulls on all the "pieces of the pie" of the wheel equally. When you spin it, friction will stop the wheel at a different spot every time. This is your goal. Spin the wheel, let it stop. Spin the wheel and let it stop again. If it stops in the same place, that's the heavy part of the wheel. Add a weight to the top. Spin the wheel, let it stop. Spin the wheel and let it stop again. Did it stop at the same place again, or a different spot? If you spin it and let it stop again, does it stop at a different spot, or same spot as before?
  2. This video is from a good buddy of ours, Gordon East, the owner of http://www.rrrtoolsolutions.com. He's a super smart dude, a gifted engineer, and long term rider. There are a number of different ways on how to lace and true a spoked motorcycle wheel, but we think that Gordon's is one of the better than we've seen. Enjoy! If you'd like to have something that you can print, go HERE.
  3. EDIT "Rear hubs are all the same from 1992 to 2007 125 on up The 125s and 250s got the right hub as of 1990 but the bigger bikes didn't use them till 1992." KTM wheels FIT. I have had people asking me about this for quite some time now so I thought id throw this together. First YES KTM wheels fit. Rear hubs are all the same from 1990 to 2007 125 on up. Only difference is Cush drive or not and rim size. I now have 3 different KTM rear wheels that I run A 17” 18” and 19”. The 18” is from a 1995 LC4. The 19” is actually a tallen hub but its for a 2002 KTM 400. The 17 is from a 2004 4XX (don’t remember). I have take pics of all the different rear wheels on my bike to show. Notice that the 18” and 17” both have the cush drive hub. The spacers rotors and sprockets are all stock KTM. This is a direct bolt up fitment. Do note that the KTM rear rotor is the same size as a 400S/E 220mm. The 18” The 19” The 17”
  4. Drill your rear rim and install a second rim lock. Then, if you do get a puncture, the tire stays on the rim better without eventually coming off as with a single rim lock.

    Stop pinch flats

    A desert racing friend of mine and 20 year motorcycle mechanic actually gave me this cheap fix. Take an old inner tube of the same size and cut out the center strip about 3/4 inch, the area that would meet the rim band. Then take the remaining piece of inner tube and wrap it around the good tube evenly. Install both tubes together inside the tire. What this does is prevent the tire sidewall from pinching the good tube causing a slice. Rubber pinching rubber won't cut the good tube when you hit a rock or g-out, compressing the side wall. I have never had to finish a race with a flat since doing this and its cheaper and lighter than thick tubes or moose type tubes. Give it a try you wont be sorry.
  6. If you ride in hard, rocky terrain, you might notice that your knobs tear off quite easily, even if you're running the correct tire for the terrain. To minimize this, drill a hole in the face of each knob with a 1/6" bit. To avoid going too deep, drilling in the tire's carcass, get some tape and wrap the drill, marking the depth in which you should stop. Drilling the knobs helps get rid of excess heat, which in turn, greatly reduces the tearing of knobs. Also, if your tight and don't like spending $130 on a new M12, you can grab an angle grinder and square off the edges of a worn tire, just don't go to deep:crazy:
  7. I ran into an issue in a recent enduro where I got a flat about 2/3 of the way through the race. Not having the time to do major surgery on the course I decided to opt for a quick fix. The main problem usually is maintaining a bead, even if the tire is still on the rim the first big turn will roll it right off. Now if you have an expensive full wheel beadlock then you can ignore this specific tip. I unfortunately don't so the solution for me was simple. I usually carry a handful of zip ties to deal with the occasional problem, when the flat occurred I took the largest ties I had and zip tied the wheel to the rim about every 6 or so inches all the way around the tire. This kept the tire on the rim and I was able to finish the race. I'll grant you not as fast as I would have liked but finishing was my goal.
  8. Parts and repairs aren't getting any easier to buy. This will greatly increase the service life of new sealed bearings. Before installing new sealed bearings, GENTLY pop out the seals from the side of the bearing. Using a well worn, (no sharp edges) small flat screwdriver should keep the seals damage free. Most bearings are lubed very poorly with thin grease sort of like petroleum jelly). It's best to wash/scrub this low-quality grease completely out and re-fill, pushing the grease through from one side to the other with your favorite. Boat trailer spec. grease is great because of its moisture resistance. The attached thumbnail pic are "before" pics. Nearly zero grease in one side of these new wheel bearings!
  9. Ripping your valve stem out is a terrible way to end your ride. Try this next tire change: when tightening the rim lock, (especially on a fresh new tire) make sure to re-tighten it after a bit of riding. The rim lock will "bite" into the tire slightly after a few stops and starts. Tightening about 80-90% followed by re-tightening will increase the "bite", more than one extreme torque job. Rims can be deformed quite badly from over tightening rim locks. If very low psi/run-flat ability is desired, using two rim locks spaced 180 degrees (opposite each other) on the rim is the best option. For extreme cases like competition hill climbs and sand drags, some racers will drill six or more holes through the rim flange and screw the tire bead to the flange with sheet metal screws. Usually this is only required with lots of HP and traction. Roost with confidence! 👍
  10. A quick and easy way to make your rear tire work like new is to cut the knobs square again. If you have a knobby knife, you can use that and most say they have good results using it. If not, you can purchase an inexpensive decal remover from harbor freight. It looks exactly like the knobby knife, but is cheaper. Last option I know of is what I did 2 days ago to my rear tire before a local harescramble. I used a 4-1/2" angle grinder to re-cut the leading edges of the knobs in the drive direction. I used a 1/8" abrasive cut off wheel on the grinder. Wear safety glasses and do it in a well ventilated area. There will be smoke and hot pieces of rubber coming off the wheel. Last, remember to take it a little at a time. Don't go too deep or you will ruin the tire. It took me around 30mins to do the rear tire, I was in no rush.

    PRODUCT DETAILS The Dunlop Geomax® MX32™ tire is the result of intense R&D testing. Building upon the achievements of its predecessors (including the popular MX31), the MX32 is poised to continue Dunlop’s repeated success. It has already been proven over and over again in supercross and motocross. Now it’s ready to be proven by every rider. After years of refinement, the Geomax MX32 has been modified to the ideal condition for consumer use. What does this mean for you? Do you love to hit the trails for a weekend of fun? Do you enjoy hitting the track whenever you can? Regardless of your riding style, you’ll find that MX32 tires offer premium grip in soft-to-intermediate terrain. And here’s the best part: It comes at a price that anyone with a dirt bike can afford. (And to be quite honest, the MX32 tire is so versatile that you might be surprised at how well it handles on hard terrain as well.) Much of Dunlop’s MX32 success has to do with the patented block-within-a-block technology utilized on the rear tire. This revolutionary design allows the tire to grip where other motorcycle tires merely slide, providing incredible traction around turns. Dunlop calls this Progressive Cornering Block Technology (PCBT). The MX32 tires also sport Dunlop’s enhanced Carcass Tension Control System (CTCS). The carcass has been refined to be more flexible and predictable. This is particularly improved with strategically placed recesses along the rear tire’s carcass. Traction is of little use if a rider can’t reliably predict how a tire will respond. That’s why the MX32 tire excels so impressively. Everything about the MX32 leads to better performance, from small variations in the tire’s knobs to their distribution across the tire. It grips phenomenally. It provides a strikingly reliable contact patch. And it works hand-in-hand with your suspension. Take a look at some of the impressive stats for each tire: REAR DUNLOP GEOMAX MX32 TECHNOLOGY: Progressive Cornering Block Technology (PCBT): This is a Dunlop-patented block-within-a-block design that offers more progressive cornering action and aids in slide control. Enhanced Carcass Tension Control System (CTCS): Tuned carcass flexibility from recesses placed strategically along the tire carcass helps smooth ride characteristics and allows the motorcycle to follow a line more accurately. Controlled-rebound Rubber Element in the Sidewall: This construction helps to damp out bounce, acting as a suspension component within the tire so that it can better follow the track surface. Multiple Block Distribution: By varying the pitches and angles of the tire blocks, fewer blocks are needed in the center area, and this enhances contact feel. Elimination of Tie-bar Design: Because the MX32 is intended for use in soft-to-intermediate terrain, the tie bars have been eliminated to reduce the resistance toward bending within blocks. This enhances contact feel and performance in sandy and muddy conditions. FRONT DUNLOP GEOMAX MX32 TECHNOLOGY: New Directional Tread Pattern: This offers great traction and steering feel for a wide range of riders who have differing riding styles. Enhanced Carcass Tension Control System (CTCS): Tuned carcass flexibility offers enhanced feel and steering accuracy. Staggered Middle Blocks: Alternating mid-shoulder knobs in the MX32 have been angled differently and are sized differently to add side grip and promote light, responsive steering while being less prone to grabbing in ruts. Elimination of Tie-bar Design: The tie bars have been eliminated to reduce the resistance toward bending within blocks. This enhances steering feel and promotes stability in muddy conditions. Chiseled Shoulder Block: Derived from the Geomax MX31, this chiseled block shape penetrates the surface to enhance side grip. Newly Improved Knob Placement and Angling: This reduces knob stress. The Dunlop Geomax MX32 tire features cutting-edge technology with tried-and-tested design principles. If you want a tire that will perform at a pro level, look no further than the MX32. Pick up a set today. You’ll never look back.

    FEATURES A cush drive is a part of a motorcycle or scooter drive-train that is designed to reduce stress from engine torque damaging other components during gear or throttle changes. A common design used by almost all street motorcycles, it has three major pieces: the wheel, the sprocket assembly, and the rubber damper. The wheel and the sprocket assembly fit together with five or more sections much like two hands woven together. In between the contact of the two assembly are rubber blocks. This makes it so the wheel and the sprocket have a dampening layer between them, and the rubber blocks reduce wear and fatigue of the metal assemblies. Hubs are CNC machined from 1 piece billet 6082 T6 alloy Original brake disc and sprocket can be mounted on the hubs Hubs are fitted with Koyo bearing, no special sizes but easy available bearings worldwide Most rear hubs have 3 bearings instead of 2 as some original wheels have All 65/85 cc hubs have 32 spokes, all other 36 Centertube and spacer are made of 7075 hard alloy Hubs are delivered with all mounting hardware
