  1. 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.
  2. 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 $40 to my name atm). Please help guys thanks.
  3. Location: Spain - Although I travel to the US often. Dirtbike prices aren't that much different. Weight: 210 pounds/95kg - Have lost 110 pounds/50kg (Random but I feel happy about it since I weighed over 320 pounds) Height: 6 feet 4/2 meters Riding experience: I'm 18 now but used to ride at 10 with a mini Dirt bike. Haven't got a lot of experience and kind of forgot the clutch system but I'm sure I'll pick it up straight away. Was so fun. Riding Area: Mainly around Mud/Mud jumps and Forests. Budget: Would like to spend less than 2k$
  4. 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.
  5. 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 ??
  6. 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
  7. 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?

  9. The pit bike itch is real. Today I went to a dealer today with my brother to buy a 19’ kx250f ( which by the way is a nasty machine) and i stumbled apon the piranhas. Up until this point i was convinced i was going to buy a 110, I just havnt found the right one. Well, I then was introduced to the 125-e. The thing was like 1500 bucks out the door and looked awesome. I just have no clue about them. Reliability? Durability? Easy to get parts? Are they expensive? And so forth. Im looking at staying away from anything with a clutch, i want something my wife can jump on and burn laps in the yard and that im not afraid to jump on after a few tall waters. It will be used to thrash around the backyard as well as probably get some track time Thanks for the help!
  10. 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.
  11. Help! I bought a SDG pit bike couple weekends ago. Carb was leaking, so I bought a new one on ebay. Still trying to get the bike started and running with it, but that's a different issue. My main issue now is, the kick start locks up and feels like its skipping, thus not allowing me to crank the engine to start the bike. Anyone know whats wrong? I'm assuming something is striped or broken....but I cant find any solid research and im not entirely sure what bike I have. I am going to pull the right cover off the engine to see if I can tell whats wrong, but i find it weird I can find any info on the engine, or the parts. The ad that I bought it off of said SDG 125. It has a clutch and 4 gears. see photos attached. Any help or redirection to existing posts is greatly appreciated.
  12. I live in northwest Virginia (Charlottesville area) about an hour south of DC, I am not aware of any tracks in the area that are either public (or private but allow people to ride with permission). Does anyone know of any good tracks in my area? - Airborne
  13. 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 ):
  14. out of 2t and 4t, what are the best low/cheap maintenance high performance mx bikes?
  15. Hey, I’m looking at getting my almost 15 year old son a bike. He’d be riding it almost all the time on trails, not very much if at all on tracks. I really like the ttr, and I’m looking at the ttr230. What do you guys think about that bike. Or something similar that you like more. Thanks!

  17. I got into a small heated discussion with one of my coworkers the other day and i am still bugged by the conversation. Id like a little insight on the subject so feel free to share your opinion, concerns, comments or rambles. So i live in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. I just recently got into motorized riding and have been riding mountain biking for a few years now. I am outdoors as much as time allows. I care about the environment around me and do my best to clean up trails and keep nature as natural as possible. That said......My coworker is an intense Mountain biker. The discussion came about because i asked if she knew how to access a trail system near her house. She then attacked me verbally saying that us motorized riders don't respect trails, or we widen them, or we are just &%$#@!.(granted, we can all be &%$#@! or bitches if we want) I was a bit taken back by her accusations when all i did was ask a simple question. Now to her point if the trails were or are muddy and wet then i would indeed be destroying trails. But i wasn't planning on riding the trails, just wanted to figure out how to access them for when they do open in a week or so. Okay, all that being said my response to her was "I pay taxes, registration fees, my bike is insured, i have health insurance and i have to pay to use the trails on my bike. You however ride the same trails, motor ways and do damage to trails just like i do but do not pay ANY fees." SOOOO i guess my post is to ask a question to the community: Should mountain bikers be required to have a sticker to ride trails? Should they have to register their bike if riding on the road? Should us dirt bikers be allowed to ride mountain bike trails since we actually pay to use trails and roads?(I know, not very realistic) Have you ever had any troubles with a pedal biker on your dirt bike?
  18. Hi All. I have just finished getting my YZ 250 F road legal here in the UK and so I thought I would make a post about it in the hope that it makes someone elses life that little bit easier should they need to do it. There are lots of posts about this on the net but most are outdated already. I will lay this out in steps for ease. These are the steps in which I did it. At this point I will assume you already have a bike and you want to know what to do next. 1. Contact the bike manufacturer. - Yamaha - Kawasaki - Suzuki - Honda - KTM - Give them a call Contact the above bike manufacturer and tell them you have purchased a bike and would like a 'Certificate of Newness'. Each manufactuer charges different money, foe example Yamaha charged me £45 and it took 3 weeks to arrive and my friend has a Kawasaki and they charged him £42 and it arrived the following week. 2. MOT - You can only do this once you have the above certificate in your hand Now after ringing around various MOT bays it become quite clear that this is a bit of grey area. Each testing bay had their own idea on how a "daytime MOT" should be done. These are the things you will need to look out for; - Road legal tyres - They cannot say "not for road use" and should ideallly have an "E" number of some sort on them. - A Horn - Every single testing bay I called required a horn. You can get a strap on horn from eBay for about £20 - Rear Brake Light - Some testing bays told me I needed a rear brake light. In the end I didn't need 1 for my MOT but I fitted one afterwards using a Total Loss System*. - Speedo - I did not need on but if you do get asked for one then you can download a speedo on your phone and attach that to your bike. * For the total loss system I replaced the bango nuts for bango brake switches, added a cheap rear number plate holder with light and added a 10 battery holder pack under the seat then wired it up. If they ask for this then remember it does not have to run off the bike so don't worry about fitting heavy duty stators etc. Each MOT tester is different so phone around and find the easiest way of doing it. 3. NOVA Declaration Now at this point you should have an MOT certificate and a certificate of newness. Before you go any further, check your certificate of newness and if it states that the bike has been added to the NOVA database then you can move onto the next step. If not, then your bike has to be added to the NOVA database. You must do thi, I cannot stress that enough. If you do not have a NOVA reference on your certificate then follow the steps below; - HMRC NOVA - Go to this site. Register or login - DeeperBlue NOVA Walkthrough - This guy, Deeperblue, has a step by step guide on YouTube. Follow this and you should have the bike added easily. It is worth noting that the HMRC will want to see a copy of the reciept for the bike(my friend made me one on a bit of paper as I got it from him) and your certificate of newness. 4. V55/5 At this point you should have been accepted by NOVA, have your valid MOT and your certificate of newness. - Order your V55/5 form here - DeeperBlue V55/5 Walkthrough - This guy, Deeperblue, has a step by step guide on YouTube. Follow this and you should have the form filled in and sent easily. You will need to send a £55 registration fee and money for 1 years tax. You can check the current tax bracket for your bike at https://www.gov.uk/vehicle-tax-rate-tables/other-vehicle-tax-rates Send off all required documents with the above V55/5 along with your cheque or postal order for your tax and registration. 5. Complete If all went well you should have all your documents back in the post along with your new motorbike log book. Now all you need to do is get a number plate made up, get some insurance and have some fun on your bike. If I can help by answering any questions then I gladly will. Big big thank you to DeeperBlue for his help with the videos. Mods/Admins, I hope this post is OK in these forums. There is so much stuff on the internet which is not clear so I wanted to help with that.
  19. Alright so I have a 2006 Honda cr85 2-stroke that was running just fine for weeks, but then I shut it off and tried kicking it on again but wouldn’t start. Pulled plug out to see it was really oil/gas fouled, bought a new plug, cleaned carb to be safe, put it all together and it started up just fine no issues. Ran extremely well until I shut it off then tried to kick on again. Would not start. Repaired spark plug boot to try to see if maybe it wasn’t sparking enough, cleaned plug again, and fired right up first kick, ran great. Once again, I shut it off and tried to fire back up but it wouldn’t start again. Seems to me that every time I mess with the plug and clean it, it starts, but when I shut it off and pull the plug, it’s really fouled. Every time I kill it then try to fire it up it won’t budge. Plenty compression, I am really confused and need some help here.
  20. I recently purchased a 2009 Yz450f. It has a few mods done to it that me nor the previous owner knew about. It has a QS2, Yoshimura full exhaust(leaks at the head how do I fix) looks to be new timing chain, k and n air filter, airbox mod, and rejetted carb. How would I know if this bike has a zip-ty racing carb mod done to it? I love on the northwest corner of Arkansas, elevation is about 1200 feet. I would like to know what size jets and needle to get for this carb for my elevation. I have ordered a tusk adjustable fuel screw, r and d power bowl, carb rebuild kit,and a shim kit. What else should I purchase while it is torn apart? I did the o ring mod on the carb as well and that seemed to help it when I first got it. Should I purchase a jetting kit or just buy individual jets of one particular size and call it good haha. Ide like to not waste any money and if I can get close to if not perfect jet sizing and needle sizing for cheaper than a whole kit that would be nice.
  21. So my friend just got bike and he wants to lift it off the ground in his garage to save space. The way he described it it would be completely on its side (As if you laid it on the floor). I told him that might not be the best idea when you consider the multiple fluids contained in the bike. Anyone know for sure whether this is a good idea or not?
  22. Just as the title says, what's everyone's favorite eBay mods for your bikes. I find my self buying quite a few parts on there for cheap money. Might not be the best stuff but it sure is cheap! ??
