  4. JARVIS HUSQVARNA RACING TEAM LAUNCHED MATTIGHOFEN, AUSTRIA – February 4, 2021 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) – Continuing their successful partnership with hard enduro legend Graham Jarvis, Husqvarna Motorcycles is pleased to announce that Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing have agreed a one-year contract extension with the British star, which will see him compete in the FIM Hard Enduro World Championship alongside teammates Alfredo Gomez and Billy Bolt. In addition, Husqvarna Motorcycles will support Graham’s newly set-up five-rider Jarvis Husqvarna Racing team, as Jarvis fulfils a long-standing ambition of launching his own race team and developing talented future Hard Enduro champions. As well as challenging for race wins and regular podium results himself, Jarvis is hoping the new eight round FIM Hard Enduro World Championship, together with the British Extreme Championship, will be the perfect series to showcase his new team and its roster of young stars. Passing his experience on to his team riders, Graham hopes to develop future world champions. JARVIS HUSQVARNA RACING TEAM Jarvis Husqvarna Racing has secured some of the most exciting and promising young riders – Bulgaria’s Teodor Kabakchiev, English trio of Jono Richardson, Will Hoare and Sam Winterburn, and experienced Welsh rider Grant Churchward. All riders will compete aboard Husqvarna TE 300i machinery. Graham Jarvis: “I’m often asked when I might stop racing, but as long as I can be competitive and my fitness allows it, I’m going to continue doing what I love. So, I’m thrilled to continue racing for Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing in 2021. In addition, starting my own race team gives me another opportunity to remain active in the sport I love and hopefully play a part in developing the champions of the future. This would give me a great sense of achievement, as much as anything I’ve done to date. Husqvarna Motorcycles has been incredibly supportive in this venture and we hope to repay that support with some great performances. Like everyone, I’m hoping that life, and racing, will return to normal very soon, and I look forward to getting back to competition.” Andi Hölzl – Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Team Manager: “Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing have enjoyed so much success together with Graham, continuing to support him for another year as a racer, and as he takes his first steps into team management, is something we’re more than pleased to do. Obviously, Graham’s situation is unique – there aren’t many motorcycle athletes able to consistently perform like he does at nearly 46 years of age – and that’s why Graham makes decisions regarding his career one year at a time. Knowing that he has the fitness and motivation to compete for at least one more season, we couldn’t be happier to have him race alongside Alfredo Gomez and Billy Bolt in the FIM Hard Enduro World Championship for Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing.”
  5. Rieju USA signs first Factory Support Racer to compete in Hard Enduro for 2021 (January 25, 2021) – Rieju USA is proud to announce the signing of QUINNWENTZEL from Ohio to ride and compete on the new MR300 Racing and MR300 Pro for 2021. Rieju USA and Quinn will focus efforts this year on the select AMA Extreme Races and the SEER race series with Quinn leading the charge. The MR Series from Rieju is already a proven race machine, from its previous incarnation as the EC300, and will be a great weapon to compete in Hard Offroad for Pros and Amateurs alike. Quinn Wentzel Started riding Motocross at the age of 4 as a sponsored Cobra Motorcycle team member. He rode Nationally, qualifying for Loretta Lynn’s AMA National at age 7 and would ride Hare Scrambles for cross training. At age 12, he began to transition to off-road full-time by riding the GNCC circuit, and at 15 he also started riding the National Trials Circuit and riding Extreme Enduro, where his focus still remains as he continues to excel towards the top of the sport here in the US.
  6. Like every race this year it will be postponed , However this was to be held this year in Italy in the very hot spots of the Pandemic , May they all find strength in these tragic times. "Whilst the ISDE was not due to take place until late August early September of this year – between Lombardy and Piedmont, Italy – there are many influencing factors that made it necessary to take a decision sooner rather than later regarding the 95th edition of what remains the oldest event in the FIM international calendar. The 95th edition of the FIM International Six Days of Enduro will now take place from 30th August to 4th September 2021 with the 5th edition of the FIM Enduro Vintage Trophy from 2nd to 4th September, between Lombardy and Piedmont in Italy. Please note all 2020 pre-entry fees will be refunded in due course. Details regarding 2021 entries will be released in the coming months, as and when further information is available and it appropriate to do so."

  8. CANCELLED: Rd4 Red Bull 111 Megawatt. 🚨 Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and the instability of organising large-scale events it creates, the unfortunate decision of cancelling this year's Red Bull 111 Megawatt in Poland has been taken. The 6th edition of Poland's largest Hard Enduro race won't take place in 2020.
  9. January 19, 2020 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) – Delivering a riding masterclass, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Billy Bolt claimed a hat-trick of victories at round three of the FIM SuperEnduro World Championship in La Coruna, Spain. Also topping the Superpole hot lap, Bolt secured a maximum points haul to return to the top of the championship standings with two rounds remaining. Despite a difficult home round, Spaniard Alfredo Gomez battled hard throughout the night to take fourth and maintain fourth overall in the series. Disappointed with his performance last time out in Germany, Bolt arrived in Spain eager to make amends and deliver a redeeming result. On what was an increasingly slippery and technical course, the Brit looked in command as he rode his Husqvarna FE 350 to victory. Billy Bolt Beginning his night with a blisteringly fast Superpole lap, Billy topped the classification by almost two seconds. Carrying that momentum into the first of the night’s three races, the Brit quickly hit the front of the field on lap two and was never headed. Controlling the race throughout, Bolt claimed the win with a confidence-boosting 11-second margin of victory. Starting from the back of the grid in the reversed start order race two, Billy again worked his way into the lead on lap two. Despite a couple of mistakes in heavy traffic, he kept his cool to take the win. With a clean sweep up for grabs, Bolt duly delivered in the third and final race of the night. After an early battle with rival Jonny Walker, Bolt took the lead on lap four. Racing clear and opening up a sizeable 32-second advantage he took the win, comfortably claiming the top step of the podium and with it the championship leader’s red plate. Looking forward to making a good impression on the leaderboard at his home round, Alfredo Gomez didn’t quite have the night he was hoping for in La Coruna. Despite placing third-quickest in the morning’s timed practice, a crash during his Superpole hot lap qualified him in sixth. Faced with a disadvantaged grid position for races one and three, the Husqvarna rider fought to make the best of his situation on his TE 300i. Alfredo Gomez Fourth in race one and fifth in race three, the Spaniard secured his best result of the night when grid positions were reversed for race two. Capitalising on an outside start, he exited the second corner in fourth position. Finding a strong rhythm, he placed an impressive third to show what could have been if Superpole had gone his way. The FIM SuperEnduro World Championship continues with round four in Budapest, Hungary on February 1, 2020. Billy Bolt: “I’m made up by just how well tonight has gone. It’s the first time I’ve won all three races and taken the Superpole, so all in it’s gone about as perfect as it could have done. After my performance in Germany I wanted to come here and redeem myself. But to be honest, when I walked the course I didn’t expect it to suit me so well. However, as the night progressed I adapted to the changing terrain and conditions. You needed to muscle the bike around in places, but at the same time be calm and patient. I did my best to avoid mistakes and take the opportunities when they came to me. It worked, especially with race three – that felt perfect. Of course there’s still a long way to go in the championship, we’re far from over, but to take maximum points and get the leader’s red plate back is fantastic.” Alfredo Gomez: “I made things difficult for myself when I crashed in the Superpole and ended up sixth. That meant I had a poor gate position and it was difficult to fight in the first corner. In race one I started seventh and recovered to fourth. I managed to capitalise on the reversed grid for race two and exited the second corner in fourth. I found my rhythm pretty quick and took third there. With fifth in race three I ended up fourth overall, but I showed in race two that with a decent start my pace was good.” Results – SuperEnduro World Championship, Round 3 Prestige Overall Classification 1.

  10. I want to get a cheaper used FMF exhaust for my bike. The one on eBay I was looking at had some dents in it. Do dents in the muffler have a big impact on the performance? Also the pipe looks to be turned the wrong way does that rotate? I don't want to buy this if the pipe will not rotate because I think it looks like its turned the wrong way and wouldn't fit.

  12. Lagares turmoil – 11th hour ruling restricts HEWC Rnd1 07 May 2021 | Hard Enduro World Championship A last-minute General Health Directorate order placed on the 2021 Extreme XL Lagares organisers has turned the opening round of the Hard Enduro World Championship upside down by severely restricting the race to one small area. A public health decision taken by the Portuguese Direção Geral Saúde (DGS or General Health Directorate) has dealt a heavy blow to riders, fans and race organisers at the Extreme Lagares, due to start this morning on the outskirts of Porto. A statement from the event organisers dropped literally in the eleventh hour (on Thursday European time – see it below) says they have been slapped with a restricting order despite what amounts to years of planning and no shortage compliance with Covid rules or prior knowledge about this race and how it runs. It is hard not to feel for the event organisers, Extreme Clube Lagares headed by Paulo Moreira (who says “honestly, I even feel a huge sadness”) having put their life and soul into the event they have been planning this year’s race since 2019. Lagares is the opening round and effectively showpiece event for the new FIM Hard Enduro World Championship. Given Portugal is the home country of the FIM president Jorge Viegas, it is also hard not to wonder where the FIM are at a time like this? The DGS ruling means the whole three-day event will now have to be severely contained within the Serra do Pilar (Maneuver Park) area where the EnduroCross races were due to be held today, Friday, and Saturday morning. You can view the onboard preview of the park in our separate story: Extreme XL Lagares EnduroCross track onboard preview It’s naturally also a major blow to the many international riders who’ve trained, prepped and travelled for those infamous rocky riverbeds and gulleys at this eagerly awaited first round of the new FIM Hard Enduro World Championship. Here’s the statement from the organisers in full: The Extreme Clube de Lagares hereby informs all participants and teams of the 2021 Borilli Extreme XL Lagares - Opening Event of the Hard Enduro World Championship and Hard Enduro National Trophy - that the event that will take place this weekend will unfortunately be held in a different format than previously presented. Due to the late impositions by the DGS (General Health Direction), the event will have to take place in its entirety - 3 days, inside the Quartel da Serra do Pilar (Parque de Manobras) facilities. The entire organization, FMT and entities joined efforts along the last few days, however the late report from DGS, forces this worldwide event to be held “behind closed doors”. At this time we are joining forces to minimize the loss and above all to have the competition and spectacle prevail with all its participants. We count on your understanding and support so we can preserve the good name of this competition. https://enduro21.com/en/racing/latest/hard-enduro-world-championship/lagares-turmoil-11th-hour-ruling-restricts-hewc-rnd1?fbclid=IwAR1i56eYXXwLjcJ5EuVt_ty-pGhy8U52JSf6Llhrcoepgnib34YwFFzostw
  13. This is the saga of my poorly maintained 2003 YZ250 that I bought about a year ago. I added a few mods last summer to help me get by then deployed to Africa for 6 months. The poor bike was riddled with SAE hardware, spray foam where there should have been gaskets, and ziptied rear fender, a horribly cut seat, and plenty of other unspeakable things. However, it came with a title and the engine did run pretty strong at the time...even though it had a hint of engine noise. Over time, the noise progressed and I knew what had to be done. While I was away, I coerced my wife into sending a used crankshaft i bought out to Mr. Crankshaft so I'd have a spare for a quick swap... This is it after I replaced the fuel tank that had a split in it and put a lectron carb on. It still wasn't that smooth and the wheel/tire combination were unforgiving, plus, the suspension and rebound were set for a wanna-be-freestyle MX rider. This is the transition to where it was before I really dove in GT216AA Front with Nitro Mousse 18" Rear with Shinko 505 Cheater rear and Nitro Mousse Low Enduro bend Flexx bars (eventually putting steering dampener on) SSS Forks and suspension done by W.E.R. DEP Armored Enduro Pipe Steahly 9oz Flywheel Weight Devol Skidplate IMS/Zipty tank Non-cracked white rear fender Tall seat...I forget who made it, but it does what it do and fits well. Head cut by 218 (head was cut after this photo was taken) rock kickstand During this ride, I had next to no bottom end due to a stuck powervalve. This was my first ride since I came home. I never really tore into the engine, so I got in there, cleaned it up and replaced a broken powervalve pulley and a few areas where parts were missing from the previous owner(s). Two weeks after this picture, I took it out to the mountains for the fourth of july and it started to get real nasty sounding and not in a good way This is why: While I was in there, I figured I'd send the top end out to Eric Gorr...and since that has a 2.5 week lead time, I might as well get the frame in order. Now my bike looks like this. The frame was spray bombed over who knows what, which was over the the original finish. That is being re-mediated. To be continued...
  14. Hey guys, I just sold my yz80, for $1100. Im down to two choices for a new dirt bike to buy, a 2003 cr125r, or a 2007 rm85 big wheel. I sold my 80 because i outgrew it, and im ready for a faster bike. Im only 5'3, so I know i wont be able to touch both feet on the 125, its got a freestyle seat, so it sits a little lower. Then, the rm85 is a big wheel, but i already outgrew my 80, and i dont know if the rm85 will be much faster. I rode my 80 amazing, i ride enduro/trail and I go to mx tracks to practice often. Let me know on what bike you guys think i should get. (By the way, my brother has a cr125 as well, and ive rode it and control the power well.)
  15. Anyone using a Scott steering stabilizer or similar product ? I would like to hear your opinion on them. Where are good places to purchase them ?
  16. Ballards was the premiere Yamaha team to ride for, and they won numerous Championship’s through the years. Here he gives his input on the new Yamaha WR450. (Sorry Mog)
  17. Hey guys I've decided to enter my first race this coming june and i have absolutely no experience racing. It is going to be a 10 hour endurance race at glen helen in june. since none of my friends want to do it i will be entering the iron man class and operating my pit 100% on my own. Im not doing it to finish first or get the best time I'm just doing it for the experience... if you guys could make suggestions on things to bring or what you have found that works best for you that would be greatly appreciated...
  18. story time So i have always been told that a Flywheel weight is the tits on a yz250, so naturally, i installed one within a month of owning my new blue monster. The YZ250 is a genuinely incredible machine and making it as luggable as a diesel was a really great decision. It makes cornering, traction and so many other parts of riding alot easier. Its easy to see why even the top riders of back in the day used them as a mod. i chose the 11 oz size by Steahly. Today i was riding at AJS motocross in Western Australia when the engine completely went on me. I thought i had blown the bike and i was fairly upset as i had a week of riding planned ahead of me. I spent a couple hours stripping the bike down but found the motor itself in reasonable condition. What had happened instead was the flywheel weight had come a little loose (like there is absolutely no room in that flywheel bay. the 11 oz leaves zero space left before it hits the cover) and wedged itself on the cover. This was what caused the "Seized" engine. I have pretty well destroyed the thread on the flywheel shaft rod thing which ill have to some how fix. This is upsetting as its caused alot of grief and will stop me using that flywheel weight again as its thread is trash and i wont risk that happening again. Is this a common Problem? i torqued the weight properly and checked it after the first ride so its pretty surprising. This was the flywheel weights maybe 5th ride.
  19. Just bought a Husqvarna TX300 and the stock mikuni is giving me the worst gas mileage I have ever experienced on any 2 stroke. There is a little bit of spooge but not enough to seem extremely rich. Also, when I began running out of gas I would shut the gas off and the remaining gas in the bowl seemed to go forever. Perhaps the float if too high?
  20. Went for the first off road ride on the drz after getting it about a week ago. Really loving the torque of this thing compared to the crf250l. Being able to comfortably maintain 70ish and pass grandma is a HUGE plus. It takes about an hour for me to get to the n.f. from my house sooo ordered the seat concepts seat when I got home lol. There seems to be a sweet spot at 56-62 on this bike where it really smooths out. 1---Need to get rid of the trailwings pronto. 2---Maybe because of the extra power but this feels a lot more confident in the heavier stuff than the crf250l did for sure. 3---This bike handles jumps a lot better for a 200lb 6'3" guy lol (a little obvious maybe) I was going a good clip and got to a rough section with some clay mud and boom. Right hooked the ground. The stock bars bent enough that it made it uncomfortable to stand and ride so gimped on home. For anybody interested I really recommend the enduristan bags. They are a little spendy but with the way they roll down to close and the attachment they do not move at all and have stayed dry in water crossings and storms commuting to work. These are the small ones. 'wings don't clean out well huh lol. Clogged up and sent me down. All in all it was a good ride and I am really liking the drz. I find that even with one less gear than I am used to, you can leave it in a higher gear and just grunt along. New bars and hand guards are in the works. I have a wolfman rear bag that I am looking for a rack it will work with.
  21. I've been riding my 2002 400s with stock 15/44 gearing for a while now. Unfortunately I find myself having to do a lot more highway than I would like to, to get to where I want to ride the dirt. I'm building the bike into a light adventure bike and I don't ride any super technical trails (I don't want to completely lose that ability though) but I do like some so-cal mountain trails. I anticipate a lot more highway miles in the future in order to reach the trails I'd like to ride, also meaning I'll be adding a little weight, camping gear etc.( I am a 150lb rider) I saw a 43t rear sprocket available, would 15/43 make any noticeable difference in my highway rpms (65-75) and how much damage would it do to my abilities on the trail. I would also like to know the same for 15/41 and if anyone can let me know what changes in chain would need to be made. This will be my first time experimenting with a gearing change on any bike that I have owned. Bike has 3/3 mod done, stock exhaust and a JD Jet Kit.

  23. Hey! I have a Honda crf250r 2004 the bike runs smoothly but the only problem I have that if I try to start it it usually takes me around 10 kicks maybe more to get it running. When its warm it kicks first try. When its cold I turn the gas on, the choke, twist the throttle maybe 2-4 times am I doing something wrong? or is something wrong with my bike?
