I have been riding dirt bikes for the past 15 years and all my riding life I have always pulled in the clutch in order to brake, when entering a corner. I know that not using the clutch and letting the bike “clatter” when braking into a corner is smoother and more effective. I was wondering if this technique is hard on the bike and if it will cause significant mechanical problems down the road? I am not a Racer, just a motocross enthusiast whom likes to improve technique and lap times; However, I do not want to have to spend a couple hundreds of dollar for a second off my lap time. I am fine if it tends to wear the clutch out a little quicker because that is an easy fix, but I do not want to be shaving down the gears in the transmission at the same time. Any help is greatly appreciated!
i dont know why but i can turn left fine but everytime i go to turn right i feel as if im loosing my balance like for some reason my body leans left even though im trying to lean right so i just end up going straigh so i dont fail. any ideas why or how i can improve turning right? ive read about it it seems to be kinda common i guess but i dont know its annoying me cause i wus out when i hit a right hander 🤦. Thankyou 🙂 By the way thankyou to everyone who help me on my other thread, just so you all know i ended up getting an 09' ktm 250sx, love the bike its awesome thanks for all you advice 👍
Hello. Looking to get a pit bike. Originally I was looking at a 85 2stroke but I hear they are a lot of work to maintain. Plus pre 2002 are the only greenstickered 2strokes in ca. Tell me I’m wrong, I’d love a 2stroke. So I thought I was settled on the klx110l, but then I saw that a lot of people jump the regular 110. I’ve also heard the 110l is harder to work on? I think clutch would be fun to really learn tight corners and wheelies. Clutch would also be nice to teach friends, but no clutch would be even easier for the lady. Do most pit bike races have clutch separate classes? someone also recommended pitster pro, but are China bikes reliable? Any how, I’m open to different brands and basically all recommendations. Any advice at all is much appreciated. thank you, Cole
