    2017 RMZ sputter just developed

    My 2017 had ran perfectly until yesterday. Last week at same track it was great, I changed the oil this week to synthetic with new filter. This week, maybe 1/2 lap at speed once warmed up and it would start sputtering/bogging/cutting out momentarily. Obviously not as it should be. The air filter was not dirty and temperatures were the same both weekends. I was guessing bad gas, which after I filled up realized it was 10% ethanol blend premium. So today I drain the tank, get good premium (no ethanol) and hoped the bike would run right. Nope. Still sputtering upon full throttle as it revs out. Runs fine at low RPM but that really does not matter. Seems to have more popping on decal too. Anybody got ideas? I am cleaning the air filter now but I doubt that was a problem.

    Collegiate Motocross??

    Hey y'all, its been a while since I've been on TT, so forgive me if my forum etiquette is a little rusty. So, I am currently a student at The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, studying accounting in the business school here. If your familiar with the place, then you can understand how boring Knoxville can be at times, and if you're not, well, just take my word, this place can get really boring. All this boring has had me thinking of getting back into riding for a few months now. (I had to sell my yzf this past year for financial purposes) Recently though, I have been wanting to do more than just ride. I want organize an official Motocross club at the University of Tennessee. I have started contacting local offered dealerships, shops, and tracks for support in my effort to start this club; so far, every business that I have asked for support, all have been in support of starting a club and are all willing to help back me. I have also contacted other college motocross clubs in hopes of finding a collegiate motocross community. When I started trying to find contacts in the collegiate motocross community, I realized there really was no collegiate motocross anything... EXCEPT LSU. LSU is one of the only major schools in the nation, that has an official LSU Motocross club. After reaching out to the guys at LSU, I got some input on what I should expect in this process, as well as how long it may take. So, to say the least, i think I'm getting good traction on this idea. There is one thing I still have yet to understand; and that is, why is there no such thing as college motocross? Does anyone have any useful information as to why colleges have not adopted motocross as a university sport? I also want to know why there is no such thing as a college motocross league? (I know that that second question kind of answers itself based off the first, but you know what I mean) If you have any input, feel free to comment, and help me brainstorm. -Shot in the dark here- but, if anyone out there wants to help support a potential Tennessee motocross club/race team, feel free to comment, or direct message me. This club might just be that, 'final untapped motocross market'. I see potential and if you do too, your comments and ideas would be greatly appreciated. --also if anyone is selling a 250 four stroke race bike, that is fuel Injected, and want to support a Tennessee motocross club, let me know, because I am in the market for such a bike--

  5. I have a Honda crf50f and its been sitting for 6 years. I just got a new carburetor and it's now running, only 1 problem. It wont idle when the choke is on or up position, it will only idle if choke is in the down or off position. Any help on what it could be? Thanks.
  6. BREA, CA – February 18, 2017 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – From local, grassroots racing and multiple national and world championships, to capturing the 2016 AMA 450 Pro Motocross title while dominating the series for the past decade, racing is at the core of Suzuki. It is the thread that sews together Suzuki’s heritage, the driving force that pushes product innovation, and the reason why countless motocross legends have chosen to swing their leg over an RM. As Suzuki continues to define racing, we are excited to announce the formation of the next generation of Suzuki racers. Those who will battle at their local race tracks, who will fight for national titles, and who, together, will carry the winning RM legacy into the future. Introducing the RM ARMY. Armed with the best handling machines in the industry and equipped with the support essential to develop champions, the RM ARMY is the future of Suzuki motocross. “The RM ARMY is a state of mind, a unifying force, and the umbrella under which our supercross and motocross racing programs will reside,” said Chris Wheeler, Motocross Racing Manager at Suzuki. “The RM ARMY was developed to create a sense of community for Suzuki racers.

I feel that I can help them achieve their racing goals and this is what makes this venture very exciting to me.” Source: Suzuki Motor of America, Inc.
  7. Hello, and sorry if this is long winded I just need to make sure I cover everything. Been pretty interested in the whole idea of motocross for about a year or so now and I've saved up around £2000 to get my first bike. I've had a look at this bike, and it seems pretty good. http://m.funbikes.co.uk/M2R_Racing_Warrior_J1_250cc_2118_96cm_Dirt_Bike(4755).aspx But to be honest I'm not generally sure what to look for. Long story short I just need a suitably sized bike (I'm 17, 180cm tall). Which will perform well (I live in Essex which isn't exactly very rough terrain), and will last me a fairly long time with moderate use. If anyone could recommend me a bike which would be better value than the one above then please do. I just want something which is reliable, will be good to ride, is upgradeable and will last me a good amount of time with proper maintenance. I can go higher than £2000 so if that's necessary let me know. Overall just recommend me a reasonably priced bike which fits the above criteria. Also lastly, as far as I know there are no licences needed to own or ride a dirt bike (as long as they are kept off the road and are strictly only used on off road and non-public areas). If anyone is familiar with UK law could they let me know if there are any further licences needed. Google didn't exactly help me. Many Thanks Everyone!
  8. I bought a bike awhile ago and in the process of rebuilding it, i noticed an AMA Pro Racing sticker. I just disregarded the sticker until recently. I had the thought that maybe someone on Thumpertalk might know who raced this bike back in 2008 or 2009 Can anyone tell me who raced this bike prior to me owning it. The bike is a 2008 CRF250R The sticker is: AMA Pro racing 1311 Ive included pictures of the sticker on the bike.

    lorettalynn The Post-Regional Report

    What’s up ThumperTalk readers! I’m back with an update from this past weekend at the Southeast Loretta Lynn’s Regional Championship at MillCreek MX as well as some thoughts going into Loretta’s prep. When I say that it was a long weekend, I mean that for more than just one reason! Between the drama of Open Pro Sport, 10 long and hard-fought motos, and some personal strifes, I was ready to leave the track with my tickets in hand. Of course, at the end of the day, I got what I went there to get… tickets to the ranch. With that being said, I will be going to Loretta’s in the 250A and College (18-24) classes. Before I start, I just want to say how awesome it was to return to a high-profile race and be welcomed back by good people as well as fellow competitors. While Motocross is a highly competitive atmosphere, we all like to see each other in good health. Loretta Lynn's SE Regional Championship at MillCreek MX, Photo my Martha @ MEPMX While there was some foul play among the races in the Open Pro Sport class, in the form of riders jumping the gate, leaving us to run 4 full motos instead of 3; I certainly did not make things easy on myself in most my race scenarios. I was trying to reacquaint myself with the old scenario of a full gate with some of the top racers in the class. It is very different racing local A races compared to racing almost 40 guys who are gunning for the top 6 positions in order to guarantee their spot at one of the most prestigious motocross races in the world, and they will do almost anything to get there. It took a few motos to get myself together, all the while working my way through the pack and making some rookie (but costly) mistakes. As far as speed goes, the lap times don’t lie… the speed was there, despite racing a 250 against 450s on a track that eats horsepower and will allow you to go as fast as you want as long as you have the cajones to twist the throttle. That’s why it’s one of my most favorite tracks of all time! However, in this sport, if you aren’t winning, there’s always a story. I will note though, it’s been since November of 2015 that I’ve been on an MX gate drop like that. That reality hit me pretty hard sometime this past weekend. However, I am proud of myself for gaining tickets in the A class, only riding for 3 months after a year off, in one regional compared to others who run two and three regionals to gain their ticket. Loretta Lynn's SE Regional Championship at MillCreek MX, Photo my Martha @ MEPMX There were things I needed to learn about my riding, some things that I needed to have reinstalled in my mind about racing at the top level, and things that I need to focus on going forward. I believe “reinstalled” is an appropriate word because I knew going into the race what I needed to do, but there were things that I forgot, as far as the level of importance. Probably the biggest thing is the importance of the start. At the top level of amateur racing, the top racers are all very close together as far as speed, usually within a second or two. If you get caught in a group of guys on the start, the top racers are already a few seconds ahead by the time you are able to make your moves. The start is the only place you can pass 41 other guys in a few seconds. While many already know this, understanding it is another thing… the race can be won or lost in the start. While I didn’t exactly nail all my starts, something I’ve always seemed to do well with is first-lap intensity. It’s easier to pass when racers are out-of-sorts compared to when they are comfortable, have a rhythm, and are using the main lines. I will give credit where credit is due and say thanks to Alex and Mr. Dan Frye for that valuable information. Going into Loretta’s prep time, I know where I stand, how to improve, and how I plan to make myself better. My costly mistakes from the weekend help shed light on what needs to change and the direction I need to go. I am a firm believer in learning from every experience. I was rusty! But I got the job done and continue to do what many never achieve for the 10th year. Something that may change however, is my path. Like I said in the first blog, nothing is certain in the world of Motocross. Stay tuned for more!

  10. I've rode without boots on small trails and on streets for about 2 years. I recently got alpinestar tech 1 mx boots and I had trouble shifting and I was also applying the rear breaks when my feet were relaxed. I've been wearing my boots around very often ( I have walked a little over a mile to break them in) but I still can't ride comfortably. I'm guessing that I have to lower my brake pedal and raise my shit lever, but it could also be my foot placement. I have the arches of my feet on the pegs when I ride. Thanks for any advice you guys have!
  11. I guess the glory days of winning the MXdN left with Carmichael & RV eh? The tables have turned and the best we can hope for is top five, now. Lord Alfred (shudder) was correct.

    The "Official" Pala MX thread

    So figured I would start a thread, going to Pala on Sunday, probably gonna to get lapped random kids on 65cc 2 smokers... Anybody else down to go? I'll be on my clapped out 05' YZ250, white bike with no stickers.
  14. I just recently joined the ranks of RMZ owners once again with my purchase of a new 2017 with a 270 kit. I have been to my local track tice now so I have some idea about what the bike offers. My bike is not perfect, as really no such thing as a perfect bike exists, and I know what I wish it could become. So, we are expecting a new bike for 2019. Here is what I want: Less weight, a couple more horsepower but still keeping the mid-range style of power, spring fork that is much more plush like the Yamaha fork, softer grips for certain, and that should just about do it for me.

    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.
  16. Hey guys it's me again. I just want to say that I am 6 feet tall but my YZ125 is really big and I can't really put my feet down. I can touch the ground (like tippi-toe), and I can fully put one foot down if I lean. Is that okay or should I downgrade?
  17. What changes would it take for you to go out and race more often? Any certain format, changes, or issues that would make you want to go race at the local track more often? For myself one major thing that would make me want to race more often is the classes. I would like to see less classes and more seat time at the race.
  18. The seat bounce is a fundamental MX jumping technique and in this video I cover how to seat bounce, when, and why. Are you using the seat bounce? How's your technique? Struggling with anything? Hit me up in the comments section below! I'm here to help you improve your riding skills so you can be a more effective racer or simply have more fun & ride more safely.

    Product Spotlight: Alpinestars Tech 7 Boots

    Product Spotlight: Alpinestars Tech 7 Boots These days expensive protective equipment saturate the market, but Alpinestars has a motocross boot that offers high dollar protection with high end quality at the average man’s price. I have worn the Sidi Crossfire 2, Garne SG-10, SG-12, and Alpinestars Tech 10 boots. While these top-line boots all share impressive features my favorite is the Alpinestars Tech 7, with the low retail price of $349. Once Western Power Sports became a distributor for Alpinestars I immediately tested the Tech 10 against the Tech 7 boots. My initial thought was I would prefer the highest priced boot, the Tech 10. While this boot is amazing, I felt like I could literally jump off the roof and have no ankle injuries (not recommended), I struggled with the lack of flexibility. I am 6’4” and have suffered many foot and ankle injuries throughout the years, the most recent was a ruptured Achilles’ tendon. I tend to look for boots that offer support and protection, yet allow me the freedom to ride comfortably and the Tech 7 meets this criteria. If I was riding AMA Supercross I would opt for the Tech 10, but for me and my Vet B riding level the Tech 7 is heaven on my feet! Look for both the Tech 7 and Tech 10 boots available in the TT store. https://www.thumpertalk.com/shop/cart.php?m=search_results&c=&catID=4443&v=&id=&venID=&attrList=&manuf=1602&priceFilter=&sortBy=PriceHiLo&search=Tech+7&sort=5&asc=desc&page=2 KEY FEATURES • New dual compound sole is seamlessly integrated into the base structure for superior durability and features high performing rubber grip patterning and enhanced feel. The sole and footpeg insert are replaceable. • The anatomically profiled shin plate features a dual closure system with an internal microfiber flap attached with Velcro® for a precise fit closure while the rugged and durable shin plate attached securely with a precision adjustable buckle. • Wide entry aperture for convenience and allows broad ranging calf fit adjustment and support. • Innovative buckle closure system includes high-impact aluminium bridge closures, with memory settings and a quick release/locking system with self-aligning design for easy, precise closure and improved riding performance. All buckles are replaceable. • Redesigned instep and Achilles accordion flex zones construction for superior comfort, control and support. • Extended microfiber gaiter helps prevent excessive water and dirt entry. • Internal lining includes anti-slip microfiber suede on the heel to help keep foot in position.

    Yesterday was a crap day

    so I watched an old MXON just before going to bed... good race, Tadesco lead most of the race and placed third. Ciarolli suffered a turn one crash, but fought through for a top step on the box. Villopoto's run was just a pleasure to watch, every time past the mechanic area, he had the front end up and he used body English to keep the bike true on the super rutted track... that's when I noticed it....the commentator...I want one like him before the outdoors starts... there was no intense diagnostic dialogue about how a rider was feeling or thinking. no comments regarding the last known "tweets" or interview B.S. No breakdown of why rider X made a mistake....It was more like watching with a buddy that's chatty, but not too chatty.... comments like "look at Tony nail that outside rut...that's skill", or Ivan has rode hard this full moto but I think he's getting tired. and at one point the commentator even busted out in a laugh as Purcell crashed.....Epic...

    Virginia Motocross Tracks

    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
  23. Long-time Yamaha 4-stroke rider/owner/racer...currently ride a new YZ 250 smoker. We all know about the perceptions and realities of the backwards motor/new chassis that Yamaha has offered since 2010. I have ridden the 2013 and current bike (2015) at demo days and like them just fine. Strong motor, all the other Yamaha attributes, and serviceable MX bike for sure. However, the bike has suffered a lot of not-so-good press. We know the bike is wide at the radiators, heavy-feeling, and a large-ish 450. I owned the 2013 YZ 250F and I know that this chassis handled great. My question here is this.....what if Yamaha simply fuel-injected the 2006-2009 motor, tweaked it to brink it in line with power levels needed today, and stuck it into the 2010-2013, and newer, chassis that mimicked the fine 250F chassis? Would they have had a class-winner on their hands? Would it be fast enough? Would it have sold better? What do you guys think?

    KTM 85 green oil leak

    Hi, my Husqvarna (KTM in disguise) 85 has just sprung an oil leak while it was layed over on it’s left side, the oil was dripping off the bottom of the foot peg and an alarming amount of oil has come out, and the oil seems to have a green tinge to it. Does anyone know what this is? Thanks
