  1. The 2016 FMF Glen Helen National was rampage of intense racing, excited fans, and cold beer. It couldn't have gotten better than it did. Star Racing Yamaha swept the podium at the end of the day with Alex Martin taking the overall. Visit www.fmfracing.com for your American Horsepower
  2. Budget FCR swap for DRZ400, a new approach For those owning a DRZ power gains from an FCR swap may seem very attractive, until you consider the cost. The Keihin FCR MX carbs are expensive and used swap kits rarely sell for less than $450 on eBay. Prices for the Thumper talk kit and others are rising as Keihin has had recent price hikes. I talked to Mike at the Power Barn in early October, when I began my search, and he was out of 39mm FCRs. He told me once they were back, prices would be about 35% higher because “Keihin US had a massive price hike earlier this year”. Limited potential of the Mikuni CV36 means that if you want more power from your DRZ, and FCR is a must. If you have already made the 3x3 air box mod this and exhaust are the next logical step for your DRZ. For those looking for power there is another way to solve the problem without spending so much money. Two weeks ago I purchased a Keihin FCR MX version 39mm off eBay for $125. FCR’s without the removable intake are common on 4 stroke racing four-wheelers and dirt bikes. FCRs without the removable intake bell are identical internally to those with the removable intake bell. These can be obtained cheaper than those with the removable bell, hence the reason I was able to get mine for $125 instead of $500+. I did a lot of hunting to get one at this price, but they sell for $200-300 regularly. As an engineer by trade I was able to design an aluminum adapter to make this happen. For those on a budget this is a great option. If anyone wants an adapter to test on their bike, message me and we can work something out. Keihin FCR Basics So that you understand more about Keihin carbs here are a few details. Ø There are 3 body styles to the Keihin FCR: 1. Keihin Slant FCR 2. Keihin MX FCR with removable air boot. This is most commonly adapted to the DRZ400. The reference “air boot” is located on the air box side of the carb. 3. Keihin MX FCR without removable air boot. Not commonly used on DRZ400 but the topic of this discussion. Notice there is no bolt on plastic adapter on the air box side of the carb. Ø These body styles can have 3 option packages. 1. Choke 2. Choke and hot start 3. Choke, hot start, and throttle position sensor (TPS) Ø When trying to find the appropriate FCR you need to inspect for port size. When you hear about 37, 38, 39 or 41mm carbs the referenced measurement is the throat size as measured from the position of the flat slide. See the picture below, this is a 39mm carb. 39mm and 41mm carbs are most commonly adapted to the DRZ. The smaller the bore the more “torquey” the motor will be. Some have used 37 or 38mm carbs and had success. Any perform better than the stock Mikumi. Ø From my research 39mm carbs were available from the factory on some of these models: o 2003-2007 YZ450F o 2000-2009 KTM 525 XC four wheeler o KTM RFS 4 stroke motorcycles 450 and 525 o CRF450X Always ask your seller to take the appropriate measurement. Good reputable sellers will be happy to take your money, for the 5 minutes it takes to check their carb. What you need for an affordable FCR swap Now onto my FCR project. To adapt a FCR with non-removable air boot you need: Item #5, the FCR adapter, is the key component. This lets you take your carburetor without the removable air boot and make it the same overall length of the FCR everyone else uses. The adapter’s air box size matches that of the stock Mikuni carb and attaches well to the air box. On the carburetor side the adapter is slightly oversized (~.007”) for a good fit. I recommend using 3M weather-strip adhesive or RTV silicon to seal the junction. Keihn castings vary slightly and no two carbs measure the exact same, making this necessary. As a side note, I made one of these also from ABS plastic which I actually prefer. Being weaker than aluminum, ABS plastic adapters are a press on fit and you are ready to go (no sealer needed). Thanks to the TT community for jetting suggestions. My DRZ with stock exhaust is running the following jetting configuration. The fit of my carb with this adapter was nearly identical to the last FCR I installed on a friend’s DRZ. Below are more pictures. Please enjoy and share your thoughts. Here is one ABS adapter.
  3. I'm new to the forums and I've been trying to read the few but super long 250x forums on here, and have been having a hard time sifting through off topic debates and mostly trail based reviews, which I was happy to see were very good. I want a new bike as I'm done with using a motocross bike offroad and need opinions on how the yz250x compares to a 450's ability to go fast in wide open desert and go up steep, deep sand hills? (I live in SoCal and ride almost everywhere but Superstition Mountain is my favorite place to ride). In a drag race how would the 250x do compared to a 450? I know it wont be nearly the same, but I'd like to know how far off it will be, and just dont have anything else to compare to. I want to make the switch because I miss the fun braaaapp of the yz125 i learned to ride on and feel I will have more fun desert racing in the 250 division. However... i love my 450 and need to be persuaded not to get a yz450fx which rn am feeling would be the safer choice because I'm scared the 250fx will feel too slow and untorquey by comparison. I realize the 2 stroke vs 4 stroke debate is basically unanswerable and in a perfect world imo everyone should have both. But, I need comparisons to 450s because I am 18 and in my 7 years of riding experience almost all of it has been on my 2012 yz450f, the only bike I've owned. I've ridden many other bikes for short periods but never a 250 2 stroke (a lot of the good reviews were based off these). thanks in advance for any help
  4. Hey guys, so I'm currently searching for a dirt bike or dual sport for my girlfriend so she can come riding with me this summer and I was hoping someone on here might have some insight. She's 5'1" which is the first of our hurdles, although she's got pretty long legs for her height and she's athletic so if we can find her a reasonably short bike i think she'll be able to handle it. This'll be her first bike, and the extent of her riding is on the back of my ducati, but shes a quick learner and I'm hoping to get her out on a family friend's wife's crf230 (that he lowered it for her) in the next few weeks for a lesson so she can get the basics down. Whatever bike we get I'll probably end up shaving the seat down just to make it that much easier. The other big limiting factor is money. We'll save up as much as we can but our budget is probably somewhere in the $1000-$1500 range. I know that doesn't leave us with a whole lot of options so we don't need anything fancy, just functional. For reference she can comfortably sit on my ducati monster that has a seat height of 30.3 inches and is pretty wide. Anyway, if anybody has any helpful ideas of bikes that might work, mods to make things easier, or just general riding tips for shorter riders, it's all appreciated! Thanks TT
  5. Hey TT, so I recently went through my xr400 and gave it a bit of the ktm style that i'm a big fan of . The idea at the time was to fix it up and sell it while it was still pretty, but with the season coming to an end without any satisfactory offers, it's looking like I'll be keeping the xr through the winter. Recently, however, I've been struck with inspiration to build a scrambler and people seem to like the xr as a base for these. I'm thinking I could offload the aloop kit and plastics to offset a bit of the price and make myself a nice vintage scrambler. Here are a few pictures of my influences. So here are the questions; have any of you guys build a scrambler like this before? If so are there any specific parts that you would recommend? Any to avoid? General thoughts or impressions? If i do end up going through with the build ill be sure to keep the thread updated. Thanks!
  6. Video of us trying to hold on while hitting sand whoops!
  7. Hey all! I am looking for people to ride with in the Greater Jackson/Teton area. I live in Driggs and enjoy riding through the parks and old service roads. Looking for other riders to ride with this summer, love doing overnight trips and bike packing. Cheers!
  8. Share your stories.. I'll go first. This happened yesterday. So yesterday I was riding with some quads. We stopped and I checked my gas. I had very little but made the worst decision to keep riding anyway. We went further and further out until I eventually peeled off and decided to start heading back. About 30 seconds after that I ran out of gas. There were houses about a mile back from where we came from, so I pushed my bike that way. There were four houses. All with every long and hilly driveways. First house, nobody in it, second house no 2 stroke gas, 3rd house looked very sketchy, fat guy had no gas. The very last house I went to had 2 German shepherds that were barking like they were about to eat me alive until I started petting them. I asked the old lady," hello, I'm sorry to ask but do you have any 2 stroke gas?" "I'll ask my husband" she said with a smile on her face. She went and got him, and he said he might have gas. Luckily, he did. He took me on his gator and we went to my bike. I put half of the gas can in there, and we said our goodbyes and I went home. I grabbed 5 bucks and took it back to them and they refused it, but I made them take it and thanked them. Without them I wouldn't have made it home. Now share yours
  9. Hi Moto Crazy Folks! Gary Semic's videos have really helped me, but I need some more in depth help. I don't have the luxury of hitting a jump 30 times before giving it a rip because I don't ride motocross tracks. I see a jump while riding trails and then get a few practice hits and then have to go for it. The bike kicking sideways is still my huge fear and this happens often. A rock, bump, or rut kicking me hard to one side or the other is now under control due to Gary...I simply lean away from these obstacles and I normally fair ok. Weighting one peg too much is not happening. The "slip out affect" is the best way for me to describe this. I find myself wanting to roll off the lip with no throttle so the back won't kick out and then I compensate in the air by hitting the throttle and bringing the nose up. Letting off the throttle makes it very difficult to clear obstacles/gaps to the landing zones. I thought teaching myself to whip might help, but in a whip I let the bike kick to one side and my body stays to the inside...pulling your leg in brings the bike back to the center. However, when you try for a straight air and the bike kicks out your body stays with the bike and not on the inside. Just had a thought...maybe twist your body/legs? I avoid high siding by turning my handlebars into the kick, but when I land it obviously shoots me off to the side and when offroad you don't usually have that luxury/room. My current conclusion is to analyze the take off really closely for any slant, however there doesn't need to be a slant to kick me to the side...unless the slightest slant can make a difference. In the sand this affect is worse, but even on firm dirt this will happen. Critique away please.
  10. Looking for other supermoto riders in our area. We are located in West Central New Jersey. Warren County, Hunterdon County, the Lehigh Valley/East Central Pennsylvania. Here is our FB page, join us... https://www.facebook.com/groups/wcnjsupermoto/
  11. The throttle on the 1986 CR500 got stuck WFO yesterday... I realized it about halfway through the wheelie (at first I thought the bike was just finally finding traction). I bounced off my back, to my right temple (I was wearing a neckbrace, thank god), and onto my back again. If the back pain doesn't improve, I'll be going to the ER.

  13. bored with the Millville thread... start a new cooper basher thread... Go Cooper!
  14. Hey everyone just wondering if there are anymore plans to open up a track here in OC. I know its a stretch but 10 years ago it seemed like everyone was trying so hard to open up a track here and now theres no one even attempting to? Last I heard was that the Irvine hangers were going to be converted into a MX track but that never happened, or maybe its still in the process? Screw all the liberal rich trash that seem to think that dirt bike riders are these obnoxious loud partiers trying to destroy the environment.
  15. Starting this one early guys as I am GOING TO THE RACES !!
  16. My husband's 2012 Husqvarna Te310 (picture in profile) was stolen from outside our apartment overnight. We moved to Surprise, AZ from NY less than a month ago. The picture is the last one we have of it and it's in NY. We just had the registration and plate changed to AZ a few days ago. I'm trying all avenues to try to recover it. Does anyone have any ideas as to what else to do besides passing the word around? Anything would be greatly appreciated. It's absolutely devastating!

Hang town ends at 6pm, Sacramento Mile starts at 7pm. http://www.hangtownmx.com/ProMX.html http://www.amaproracing.com/storage/app/uploads/public/573/090/2c6/5730902c60cf1101421264.pdf
  20. 06 SMR510 & 16 FE501S but have nobody that I ride with locally! I always feel as if the risk is increased by riding alone especially on these windy highways (101+199), forest service roads & trails. Plus riding alone typically isn't as much fun either. Msg me or reply to this thread to get in touch and maybe even make a new friend. Regards, Tyler
  21. Hello, Having improved my dirt biking skills considerably I have decided to enter the Missouri hare scramble scene. I am missing some crucial information as I am having difficulty figuring out how to start. When is the standard season? Looking at the schedule I see there are rounds, how does this effect the riders? Can you join a race in a later round having not raced prior? And is there any other general information I need to continue? Thanks!
  22. Hello, I am just getting started with Dual Sports. I have been into retro Japanese cafe racers and bobbers for a while, and have been riding for about 10 years. I am pretty good mechanically when it comes to working on motorcycles. I just moved to California from the Mass and there is so much trail riding out here it is hard to not get some kind of dual sport. I have been looking at 3 bike DRZ400, WR250R, and KLX250S. I am going to be using this bike in Los Angeles to commute, but none of it will be highway riding. I live about 8 miles from my work. I have a pickup truck that I can bring the bike to riding trials outside the city if they are to far to ride to. I am like 6 feet tall and 185lbs. I want to have a solid bike I can off-road, camp with, and ride on the street. I have read the DRZ is said to be heavy, but I have ridden Harley Fatboys and big ol' Honda CB750s. So I am not uncomfortable moving a bike around. My budget is ideally under 4k and I found this bike. Seems to have all of the normal mods I would do. What do you all think? Good deal? Should I keep looking? Anybody in Souther Cali have a DRZ for sale? http://inlandempire.craigslist.org/mcy/4743704571.html I am excited to get riding! Thank you all for you time, Tony
