  1. Location: Spain - Although I travel to the US often. Dirtbike prices aren't that much different. Weight: 210 pounds/95kg - Have lost 110 pounds/50kg (Random but I feel happy about it since I weighed over 320 pounds) Height: 6 feet 4/2 meters Riding experience: I'm 18 now but used to ride at 10 with a mini Dirt bike. Haven't got a lot of experience and kind of forgot the clutch system but I'm sure I'll pick it up straight away. Was so fun. Riding Area: Mainly around Mud/Mud jumps and Forests. Budget: Would like to spend less than 2k$
  2. Hey everyone, going out on a limb here to see if anyone rides in my area. I live in Longmont, CO, north of Denver, and am looking to get my first bike and learn to ride. I am 28 and have ridden ATVs, motorcycles, mountain bikes, but never dirt bikes but am anxious to learn. First things first, I am looking for a bike to learn on. I am 6' and close to 250 so a little bike probably wouldn't work but any recommendations? I am not looking for anything new until I learn to ride and figure out what exactly I would be looking for. I don't need anything street legal as I plan to ride tracks/closed areas and hopefully in the mountains. Is there any other reason to have a street legal bike I'm missing? I would be looking to spend somewhere in the $1000-$3000 range as I expect that's what a descent, old, reliable, bike might run? Also, if there is anyone in the area that is looking for someone else to ride with that doesn't mind giving some tips let me know!

    2007 CRF450R Wont Start

    Hey guys maybe you can help me out here. I have an 07 CRF450R just recently rebuilt the whole bike. Bottom end, bearings, top end, valves (changed to Kibblewhite SS valves and springs), cam chain, and clutch. Bike does have a bigger flywheel to run lights on it with the stator that came with it since it is running in supermoto trim and is street legal, all in good shape still. Carb is also clean and everything is in good shape, had to put a new hot start in there and a choke. Valve clarence is in spec maybe a little on the looser side (possible could effect it from starting?). Gas is also new and not old gas. First time starting it started up in 2 or 3 kicks (don't remember exactly lol) but it started up fine no resistance sounded great only problem was I didn't have the cam chain tensioner tightened down causing the bike to go out of timing and shut off after idle for a bit. No biggie just put it back into the timing marks and put it all back together again. After that it did start up 1st kick but I ended up killing it because I wasn't going to ride it or anything just wanted to see if it starts up. Although it stared it was hard to kick as in took a lot of weight and effort way more then the first start up. Tried to getting it running again next morning and no luck. Kick start takes most of my weight and a lot of force. Looked around online for similar problems people said timing by one tooth most likely. Ended up doing timing again and now it kicks though easy and less effort I got it to start but it would not idle for more then a few seconds. Been trying to start it up and I still have had no luck 100 kicks later with breaks in between lol. Was hoping to get some other thoughts on my situation seeing that I'm just mentally exhausted at this point and my leg is 100 times stronger lol. Maybe it could be timing still and I over looked it after doing it and looking over it so many times? Could the valves being a bit loose be the problem even though it was fine initial first start up? Also was wondering maybe the auto decomp could be bad? Any way to check that? Swear I have undone the valve cover so much I'm pro at putting the two front screws in lmao had the bike for over a year now as well. Sorry for a long post but any input to help me get this running again would be nice. Thank you in advance.
  4. I really want to get into dirt bike racing. Any advice? I'm 15 years old and a girl. Is it mostly guys? Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks
  5. Let's see the earliest picture you guys have on a dirt bike! Here's mine. Little Honda 50.
  6. Hello all, Aaaand... it's time for my very very first thread! I've been dirt-riding for a little over a year now, and I've been riding mostly single trails, fireroads - woods riding in general. Nothing very fancy or extreme. I own a '06 KTM 250 EXC. Lately, a few of my friends/people i used to go riding with have been reaaaally busy, so i end up riding the local (mostly DYI) mx tracks near my house. It's been really fun and helped me evolve quite a bit, but my bike (250 2t) seems to be quite a handful for me in the track (too much power and I'm a realtively small guy 5'8 150lbs). I'm not sure if it is because it is set up differently and not for track (sluggish suspension, wider transmission), but I am sure that the kick I get from the sheer power of the thing is keeping me behind. It is very tiring and a bit difficult to tame. Considering that this will be the case from now on for 80% of the time, I've been thinking about trading my bike for a 250 4t or 125/150 2t MX bike. I know MX bikes are snappier than enduro bikes, so that's why I'm thinking about stepping down a notch power-wise. Would the difference be night n day? would a 250 4t or a 125/150 2t bike be more manageable and help me improve as far as track riding is concerned? As for the other 20% of the times, will I still be able to do those woods/trail rides with almost the same ease on an 125/150 mx bike? Thanks in advance, DK
  7. Hi, my boyfriend is a passionate bike racer and his birthday is on this August. When I asked him what gift he wanted for his birthday, he told me that I could gift him anything. I think he would be pleased if I gifted him anything that is related to bikes. Last month, he met with an accident and he fell down from the bike. Luckily, his life was saved. He was left with some bruises on his face. That too could have been avoided if he used any sort of safety measures. He already has a helmet, but he is lazy to wear it. When I discussed this with my best friend, she asked me to purchase custom mouthguards from Mississauga and gift him on his birthday. I think it is a good idea. Is there anybody over here who has used mouthguards before? Was it cost-worthy? Can it be worn while riding bikes?
  8. I just did a top end on an rm 125, the bike would stay running before I did the swap, now I can't get the bike to idle properly. It starts first kick and will idle for a minute but won't stay running without some throttle, also struggles whenever you click into gear. I'm running 32:1, adjusting the idle and air screws didn't help much, my float was good and I cleaned all my jets. Not sure what to try, any advice is appreciated. Thanks.
  9. Alright so i recently had my bike apart for changing shims for about a month due to lack of time but after I put everything back together correctly(I'm fairly certain I did) it would not start so I checked timing etc and it's all correct so I started bumping it and whenever it did finally start if it was below 4000-5000 rpms it would just die any advice on what to check or try would be greatly appreciated!! (always maintained very well with oil, filters, air filters, cleaning after every ride, etc not just a pos I throw around)
  10. 2010 yz250f Alright, I was riding and I noticed that when I pulled in the clutch the bike still wanted to move. So I looked it up and found out that it could be your clutch basket or that it could be the cable needs adjusted. So I spent an hour adjusting the cable all different ways just to find out the the problem still occured. So I bought a whole new clutch with low hours used on ebay after I saw that my basket had some decently bad grooves and some nasty plates. Well I get it all installed and it seems as if the push rod is not going to Its full extent but I may be wrong. My cable like I said may need to be adjusted again because I bought a new one after I replaced everything. So guys, what are some signs that I need to buy a new push rod? Are they a pain in the ass? Should I just have my mechanic do it for I was thinking $100?
  11. Hello there, people. (Please note I am 15 years old) A few years ago, one of my fathers' friends gave him an old "Pit Bike". It would run, but stalls almost instantly, needs new rear brake linkage, new front rim, adjusted throttle tension... but other than that it's great! I've looked all over the internet to try to find the manufacturer, but to no avail. The closest I could get (appearance wise) was a Kawasaki KX60, which makes buying new parts difficult. I replaced the air filter, fuel tank, spark plug, and fixed the throttle cable. Now, I'm on the task of cleaning the carburetor. My father is a mechanic in the Coast Guard and could probably tell me exactly what's wrong just by looking at the bike himself, but he wants me to figure everything out on my own, which can be frustrating, which is my reason for being here. I have cleaned the float bowl, disassembled the float... mechanism that stops the fuel from flooding the carb and cleaned it, making sure it was put back exactly how it was, and after a few more times ripping the bike apart, it started. Well... I guess you could say it IDLED... for about 25 seconds before going max throttle and dying. (I did not touch the bike) I've been troubleshooting the possible problems, as well as learning about the fuel jets, which I think I found, but I don't want to mess up the bike beyond repair, without buying all new parts. After attempting to fiddle with the AIR / FUEL screws on the carb, the bike gave promising results, before dying, and not starting again. I have spent countless hours researching what to do and fiddling with the bike trying to at least get it back to idling, but with no success. Again, I have no information on the bike so if you need photos, I will add them. If anyone could possibly help at all, please leave suggestions and/or helpful tips... I'm just kinda lost. Thank you, all.

    HELP Predator 212 Engine Wont Start

    Hey everyone, I have a small Azusa Minibike kit that I put a Harbor Freight Predator 212cc engine on and I'm having some issues with the engine. I had taken some components off it after hearing some strange noises now the rip cord locks up solid when you go to pull it to start the engine. It is not seized up because when the spark plug is removed it can turn 100% freely. You literally lift the bike up when trying to pull on it, it's completely locked up. Any ideas or has anyone had this/ a similar issue? Let me know, Kind Regards GriffDog

    KX250F Lowering

    Hi, I have just bought a kx250f, 2013 with a freshly rebuilt 2016 motor in it, this is my first time on these forums, anyways, I have also bought a lowering link to drop it 4 inches on the arse, I was wondering if anyone knows how much I should drop the forks? I havent put the lowering link on yet. Thanks.
  14. Hey, feel free to leave some feed back!
  15. Hi all, I have a 2004 kx 250 2 stroke and it wont start. it only backfires. I was out riding it one day and came up to a stop so the bike was just idling and it started to try and die so i revved it up a few times then let it die and now it wont start back up. It only pops or backfires when you kick it. Its getting good spark and i just put a brand new plug and coil in it. I took the reeds apart and they look like they're brand new. It was running great before so i dont know what happened. Im thinking it could be a fuel problem even tho the plug is a little wet if you take it out after a bunch of kicking. Any help would be greatly appreciated Thanks
  16. I’m not into riding bikes but I’d like to be. I’m looking for a modestly priced bike to see if I like it. Apollo’s seem pretty cheap, so what’s the catch? Is it worth the money? Edit- I’m 5’3” and about 135 lbs if that matters.

    Crf is a pain to start.

    I have a 2006 crf250r. Bike is a pain to start. Just checked timing, rings etc. new rings, and newer piston. Once the bike is started it runs great. Snippy and quick. Valves are in spec and I’m not sure why it’s so hard to start. About to try a procedure tomorrow sometime after school so I’ll stay updated. I know pretty much everything there is to know about a 4 stroke engine. Not being cocky. I’m def not confident in carbs tho. Is it jetting?

    Best Vet MX Bike 2017

    I'm looking at retiring my 2007 CRF450R this year. I am after opinions on the best 2017 dirt bikes for vet racers like myself. I am a 34 year old fast C class or average to slow B class vet racer. I tend to leave the bike in 3rd as much as possible and let it lug a little if need be. I understand I will never use 100% of a 450's power. But I often find the power helpful to get up the speed to clear jumps if I start having issues maintaing my speed in corners, later in a race. I am thinking the Husqvarna FC450 would be my best bet. It's more mellow than some of the other 450's this year (thanks to the airbox and muffler), but still has enough low end so I don't have to shift and use clutch all the time. The FC450 is also set up so nice from the factory, I don't think I would upgrade anything. I am really tempted to try the 350SX-F too as I hear it handles amazing. But I do wonder if it might require a little more shifting, clutch work and general momentum maintaining than the FC450.
  19. Please help! I recently bought a Yz250f and have not been able to start it, it Has spark, but there are many issues with the carby which I wanna rule out before I leap into a rebuild, ( I want to avoid a rebuild if possible as I’m low on cash). The carby at the moment is a complete mess so the usual steps to fixing it might not work. So here’s the deal with the carb: - It’s leaking fuel from overflow ( really fast! ) and when I mean really fast, I mean it emptied my fuel tank in 2 mins. - It has a slow leak coming from somewhere under the float bowl - the air fuel screw is not adjusted correctly - I don’t know if the electrics work on it either - I don’t even know if it’s shooting fuel into the cylinder or not, as after kicking it a couple times and it’s not starting I remove the spark plug and it’s still dry. ( I tried putting fuel directly into cylinder from the spark plug hole but the bike still wouldn’t start) okay so I know it’s a lot but I’m not expecting anyone to answer every single question themselves. If each person could tackle whatever problem they know it would help heaps. Also just want to know what Order to fix things in as I can’t do air fuel until the bike is running and it won’t run unless I stop the leaking and get it to spray fuel into the cylinder. And buying a new carby is not an option ( I’ve got $40 to my name atm). Please help guys thanks.

    Air box smells like gas ?

    Anyone’s air box smell like gas ? Is this normal ? Air filter is bone dry but it reeks in there .... I’m assuming cause of the carb being semi filled with gas ??
  21. Hey guys I want to see your bikes! If ya think its nice post it below please only post if its yours Max. images is 5 per bike. This is my 2017 Yamaha 250f (I also have a crf150r but its not the nicest looking as its an 08 with silver rims ):
  22. Hey guys, I know the sign of a bad bearing in your wheel is if it kinda has any play if I'm correct? I replaced my back wheel bearings and didn't worry about the front ones. I know this may just be a suspension problem but when I land from a wheelie or jump it is really stiff. Way more stiff then I've ever felt. It just feels like the wheel is stiff. Any ideas? I've already messed with tire pressure.
