  1. Was thinking about the technology of mountain bike tubeless systems and was wondering if it's possible, when getting a pinch flat or a tear in a Dirtbike inner tube, to pull the valve stem core and then pour some tire sealant into the tube. will the sealant stop the air leak?
  2. Currently running the Pirelli MX32 front and rear. The front tire has worn all the side knobs off of both sides and is beginning to crack everywhere. I bought these tires brand new 4 months ago and ran them for 5 races with a few rides inbetween. There is still plenty of tread left in the center of the tire but i have the issue of sliding out in turns because of no side traction. I run the front tire pretty low on air pressure (can't remember exactly what), could this be the cause of it? Also, the rear tire ended up getting a large tumor in it. I have never had this happen before, what would cause the tire to do this? Want to make sure I fix any mistakes before installing the new tires. Thanks! Will post pictures shortly.
  3. Ghent's05KDX200

    ohio Tires

    So, Im looking for a good rear tire to put on my KDX200. Ive thought about a hybrid tire but here in Ohio we have lots of mud and loose gravel. I was wondering what tire would be best for loose gravel filled hillclimbs but also works good in slimy type mud. but also works decent in hardpack. Main concern is the loose gravel hillclimbs, been thinking about a soft terrain tire as well such as a Metzeler MC360 Mid-Soft tire which has good reviews. anyone from Ohio have any good suggestions? not looking for a DOT tire though either.
  4. Recently acquired a new to me 2006 low mileage SM and other than the Kenda K671 ST Cruiser 140/70 rear tire (and the Outlaw petcock rebuild kit I just installed,) it seems to be stock. At the most performance wise it might see a pipe & 3x3 w jetting kit in the future. I think I have read most of the SM tire threads using search posted here from 2006 to 2014, haven't found any newer, so I thought I would bring up the issue. While my location has me near awesome mountain twisties, and some of that will definitely happen, but the vast majority of riding will be commuting and two lane back road day trips to AL, SC, NC & TN. I am also 59 yo and don't like contributing to the state/county/muni governments through their law enforcement collection agency's. I am leaning toward the Pirelli Angel GT tires (sport touring) w/ rear being 150/70-17 as they should last a very, very long time on such a light bike, and work well in the summer thunderstorms I am sure to encounter. Thoughts? Do you prefer finding a 140/70 to stay stock on rear, or find 150/60 and 150/70 to be either better or acceptable? Is the kenda 671 worth keeping on the rear until its worn? Still has the dunlop 208 on the front, and while its not worn out, its far beyond its use by date any further, given its age. I have read previously many preferring Michelin pilot road and pilot power 2ctcombos (soft sport on front and harder sport touring on rear) Is that still the hot ticket? (or Power RS / Road 2/3/4/5) Between my cr250r and wr250r I have off road covered, so the SM at worst might see gravel or a forest service road on the rare occasion. Hope to put lots of state 2 lane highway miles on it, and as little as possible 4 lane I-xx miles. I only THOUGHT my Yamaha wr250r stock seat was uncomfortable... until I started putting miles on the SM. Sheesh. What have ya'll done? seat concepts, fisher, sargent? Thanks for any input you can contribute.

  6. 3yrs ago I parted ways with my trusty KTMs and jumped onto the Yamahas... Starting first with a YZ250 that I built into the ultimate woods bike, it was 'almost' everything one could want. But it did lack the e-start, HO stator and 6spd, things that I really wanted as the ultimate machine. Then a new YZ450F made it into my garage which I built into a woods machine (the FX didn't exist at the time). All the power in the world so a 6spd wasn't needed. But I still lacked the button and fat stator. Shortly after a large crash and some broken body parts, I then moved to the new YZ250FX which has been with me the last year. Coming with a near perfect 6spd, a 100+W stator and the magic button it should have been near perfect. But I did want for more. The bike was heavier then it's competition, taller and underpowered, but overall probably the best beginner/average riders bike available. There is no question that the Yamahas could be anything you wanted. I had great success on all 3 bikes with near bullet proof reliability, fantastic motors, outstanding suspension and unquestionable race worthiness adding a few wins and multiple podiums to my resume. But... ...when KTM introduced their new 16 models, it was hard not to look over the fence to see if the grass was greener. Could my criterias be met? So on Saturday, I picked up a new 2016 KTM 350xcf. On paper, 'most' of all criterias are met. -6spd? Check! -Lightweight? Check! -Less power then the 450, but more then the 250FX? Check! -Magic Button? Check! -HO stator? Uncheck! So outside the stator, the 350xcf is looking pretty good on paper. Why not a new 250/300 2t? As mentioned in another thread, I rode a couple 300s and wasn't neqrly as impressed as I wanted to be. So why the 16 over the 17? Cost and cost alone was pretty much the deciding factor. Outside of the AER the bikes are virtually identical. With nearly a $2000 savings between the 2 it left money I table I could spend elsewhere. And after talking with a bunch of tuners, at worst if I can't get the 4CS working, the extra money can be used for another fork options such as a KYB internal setup, or CV cartridges. So, I started this thread to kind keep my trials and tribulations on update for you wonderful folk on TT. Adding my opinion, impressions, mods, results and all that other jazz... Initial impression while sitting on the stand seem good. I've been tearing it apart greasing everything, weighed a few parts and giving it the look over. I question if the bike is built for long haul. It seems extremely well put together, but almost too well. The plastic lines blend well with no areas for hangups as well the bike feels thins, especially compared to any current Yamaha 4t. The bike also feels low and long, where as the Yamaha 4ts feel tall and short. Equally so the bike feels light and easy to throw on a stand with well placed grab handles.
  7. Hi, was hoping to get some help with choosing new tires for my DRZ400SM 2005, I have a some on my mind, but there are a few problems. So my bike has Excel rims, front 3.5"(RK EXCEL J17 M/C X MT3.50 DOT 181 JAPAN 1 05), rear 4.5"(RK EXCEL J17 M/C X MT4.50 DOT 181 JAPAN 12 04). I was hoping to get some suggestions for some 90/10 asphalt/dirt tires for mostly riding around, some twisties, but no track or very hardcore riding, so longer lasting might be better than super sticky. I already have a set of S wheels for real dirt riding, but still need the SM ones to not be completely awful on dirt as there are occasional times I have to go on dirt with them(For example a kilometer every time I go front or to my house) I was looking at the Michelin Pilot Power 3, but the only choice for the rear is 160/60, which I have heard is too wide. Another one I was looking at was Michelin Pilot Road 4, any experience with it? Thanks for your help, have been surfing the forums for a decent time and seen how helpful people are.
