  1. hi all, just wondering i've narrowed it down to these 2 ktm 450 xc f and a honda 450 rx both 2019 all i really need is low to mid power just want to know which one has more low to mid, thanks Archie
  2. So I finally got around to replacing the horrendous Suzuki footpegs. Went with some Moose Racing "Onyx" 1/2" back offset pegs. What should have been a 2-3 minute video turned about 5.5 minutes due to an issue with the right side that required some creative grinding to remedy. It was a strange thing for me. I love the feel, I love the toe-room, but having to grind on a brand new $90 part kinda pissed me off. I spent my own money on these (video not sponsored by Moose in any way) so I think I gave them a fair shake in the video.
  3. Hello, I run a rather small Mind of a woman...riding blog. I'm looking to see what kind of stuff you guys would want to read about? I've done a few articles... Why you need to let your husband build a Mx track in the backyard http://www.oldhousefreshstart.com/2017/09/5-reasons-you-need-to-let-your-husband.html And why your husband needs a new bike. http://www.oldhousefreshstart.com/2017/09/5-reasons-why-your-husbandboyfriend.html But im wondering..why other types of stuff? There's not much interest in blog of bike maintenance from a women's point..that's boring right? Whats your opinion? Be nice. :]
  4. I'm and intermediate rider who rides very aggressively and on hard, but fast-paced woods/cross-country/harescramble riding. Sometimes I'll do technical, really tight trails, log crossings, and hillclimbs, etc. and I also will ride motocross tracks every once in a while. I currently own a 2008 KTM 250 XC-F with a bigger rear sprocket, FMF exhaust, aftermarket piston, and I typically run high octane fuel. I won't be upgrading for quite a while but I am planning ahead trying to decide what to save up for and all that. I'm sure this forum will also help others in similar situations. I'd like something that can top out faster than my bike but something that can accelerate quickly and have more torque as well. The majority of my riding is very fast-paced woods with hard corners and lots of roots and steep hills as well, so I'd like something that can blow through corners and accelerate quickly. But, I also ride a lot of tight technical trails so I'd like something that's torquey and has explosive, yet controllable power and something I can take over big logs and rocks. I'm fine with a bike that likes to be revved a lot as that's what I do on my 250xcf now. I'm used to four strokes although I'll probably adjust to a two stroke very quickly as I ride constantly. I'm leaning towards a 250 XC or a 350 XC-F although I've heard lots about KTM's 125 and 150 2 strokes, the 450 and 500, the wide ratio "w" models of the cross country bikes, and their respective motocross models just because I know how explosive they are. I understand that this is a lot to ask out of one bike but I'm going to be adding a lot of aftermarket parts to whatever I end up getting if it doesn't already have any. Tell me all about these bikes if any of you guys have ridden them! I'm probably going KTM because I've heard nothing but good things about them but I will still consider any other brands as well. Tell me any aftermarket you had to do, improvements to be done or downfalls of each bike, and all their advantages and things they're better at than the other ones if you've ridden more than one of these. This is more of a harescramble/cross-country racing post, but since some of my races have parts of motocross tracks I'd like to hear how they do on the track. Also, money isn't too huge of a concern with me but I will definitely not be able to get a brand new bike. I will be racing so if it's bigger than a 250 then I'll have to be sure that it can compete with bigger bikes. Thanks, in advance!

  7. So I thought I should create a new thread to dump my vlogs into for the few that do watch them. If you didn't catch my vlogs from last year for 2017, check them out here -> 2017 NMA Series Season 2 is well underway for 2018. This year I'll be racing the Open A class competing in both the NORCS and NMA off-road series as well as the Desert 100 and maybe some other races throughout the year. If you got any questions or recommendations, lets hear them. Enjoy! Northwest Off-Road Championship Series (NORCS) Northwest Motorcycle Association (NMA)

  11. With warmer weather and the riding season around the corner for many of us, I wanted to cover a topic that can either make or break an event. Whether you’re competing in a racing series or traveling to the track or trail, let's talk about event preparedness. More specifically, what spare parts should you keep on hand? Plus, what methods do you use to keep your spares organized? Honestly, I struggled with organization until I started working on this post. I had no method to my madness. Every time an event came up I’d do the same thing; throw a bunch of stuff in a box or the back of my van and head to the event. The sad part is I now realize this was a weakness of mine for quite some time, but didn’t do anything about it! Maybe you can relate? I finally said enough is enough. I don’t throw my tools in a cardboard box when I go to a race, leaving what I bring to the fate of my memory. So why would I do that with the spare parts I bring? I started solving this problem by compiling a spreadsheet detailing what spare parts I keep on hand for ice racing and hare scrambles. I realize that each discipline will differ and may have niche parts that should be kept. The goal here is not to definitively define what spares one should keep on hand, but to have a conversation and provide a resource that can be used to help people get set up based on their own needs. Once I took inventory of everything I felt I wanted to bring to a race, I went to Menards and went hunting for the perfect organized storage bin/toolbox. Here’s what I ended up with: Naturally, once I returned with the toolbox, my list grew and I probably need to go back for a bigger one. I intend to store a copy of the spreadsheet in the tote so I can keep tabs on inventory and know exactly what I have available. Should I get another bike, this system is easily replicable and my plan is to get another organized toolbox that goes with it. This system is how I went from being an unorganized “throw it in the van at the last minute” rider to a more relaxed well prepared rider. I’d love to hear how you handle event readiness, what you bring, and how you keep track of it. My hope is that by sharing our strategies we’ll save someone the misfortune of having a bad day at the track or trail. Perhaps I'll even end up with more things I need to add to my list. -Paul If enjoyed this post be sure to follow my blog and sign up for my newsletter! DIY Moto Fix Newsletter
  12. Hello friends, I have seen some discussion about DRZ400 (DRZ400S, etc) vs whatever other bike, when it comes to power. My riding buddy and I threw down some good old drag races this morning on the way back home after some adventure in the forest. I own/ride a 2002 KLX300R. We ran two heats, one on gravel, then one one asphalt. Who do you think won? See below:
  13. I want to start racing hare scrambles next year but I need some start knowledge before I do so. I will either be on a YFZ 450r or a TRX 450r. I get that hare scrambles start from a dead engine but how do I actually start the quad and get going like what gear should I start the quad in and that kind of stuff if you could help me it would be greatly appreciated. Also how do you use the clutch in the corners for a better drive in the corners?
  14. Had a great race last weekend and had a ton of fun doing it. If you haven't been to a Hare Scramble, Enduro, or the similar I would definitely recommend it. They are a ton of fun to race or spectate. Enjoy the video. Video Link
  15. PLEASE NOTE, START TIMES LISTED BELOW ARE IN EASTERN STANDARD TIME, NOT CENTRAL!! AMA and District cards are required, if you have a current D17 harescramble card, I was told they will honor it. Still have to hear back about transponders. Most likely will have to purchase their transponders for $15. Motorcycle hare scrambles races will be 2 hours, Plus one lap in length. Youth class races will be 1 hour in length. Day schedule: •Sign up opens at 7am •Small Bike – 9:30am •youth quads 10am •50cc auto. 2:30pm •big bikes 12pm •quads 2:30pm
  16. Could a brand-new Six Days 250 EXC-F survive the baja rally? If you have any experience, what would be the downsides of running a smaller engine instead of a 450? Tips for or tricks to set-up the bike? Ive ridden enduros all my life and want to challange myself to a rally.... still figuring out all the navigation details.
  17. I will post all of my vids from enduro riding on my Gasgas EC 250 2008 racing... today first vid of crashing, because of veeeery slippery conditions... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dYDDqT7zuS4
  18. ....for a couple days while I maintain the bike, and cry while washing my air filter... With about two miles left of the Casey Folks 100 I went through a few water sections and my bike died. I tried restarting it, nothing. I tried pushing it through sand, but I was too tired. I quit. So I walked a mile and called for a ride. Help arrives and tells me I am pussy. They make me check stuff, and everything checks ok. I kick it, it starts. I finished about 1.5 hours later than I should have. I am pretty sure I was doing better than most in my class. Anyone want to guess what happened? I will give you a hint; I tried gluing my gas cap vent hose the night before... Casey Folks always said my bikes were pieces of shit.

    Mini Quad Racing Texas

    Hi my name is Ron Wesolak, I live in north Texas. My son asked for a quad for Christmas 2014 so I bought him a Tao Tao. I figure if he did not like it I would only be out a few hundred instead of a few thousand. in 2015 my son asked to race quads. I had bought a DRR 90 earlier (race ready - tong in cheek now) to take down to Baja where we vacation every year. Not knowing anything about quad racing I started to do some research not a lot out there like motocross which is my background. After a few months of e-mailing and leaving messages without return calls; I finally got a return call from GForce in Florida. I got a quick education and direction on mini quad racing very eye opening. Bought a APEX 90 and was fortunately able to meet the Fords who were gracious in hauling it back to Texas for me. Crank that thing up and wow this is nothing like a Tao Tao, Yamaha, or Honda mini quad. Our first year of racing was 2016 TQRA in getting to know the other parents of racers I found my journey was not much different than there's was. Mini quad racing is great for kids my question is how many parents would be interested in a true beginners class where they raced stock Tao Tao, Yamaha, Hondas, and CanAms on a slightly modified MX course no really big hills or jumps. I am trying to think of ways to help grow the mini quad racing here in Texas. I know there is TQRA, LSQRA, Scramble Cross, TORN, and OCCRA wonder how we can grow the sport? Appreciate any and all feed back. Thanks
  22. Hey Everyone, I just wanted to give everyone an update on how the Alta Redshift MX did at the RMEC Hard Rock Enduro in Colorado. Don was able to get a 2nd place finish (would have been first if not for a flat rear tire) in the A 50 + class and 17th overall. The bike was absolutely amazing on the technical rocky terrain. Race Info: 6 laps that averaged 23 minutes per lap a little over 2 hours of actual racing time Don was able to sneak in about 35-40 minutes of charging total using a 220v generator. Raced the entire race in Map 1 on the Alta The Alta does require a little more strategy for Longer format Enduro racing, but it is very competitive against gas bikes! Here is the link to the YouTube video of the race from Don's helmet cam.
  23. The guy is a damn well rounded racer. Most extreme Endurocross racers do not cross over too well the Hare and Hounds. This guy is doing it and getting podiums. Seeing how he is from Scottsdale AZ I'm not surprised. IMO, Hare and Hound is at the very top of the food chain of difficult and frightening forms of off road racing. The average guy does not have what it takes to pin the throttle and hold it without crashing. Extreme enduro racing back East is very physically demanding and has it's own challenges with mud and trees. OTOH the courses have nowhere near the speed or dust as a good old desert race. I wish him well.......
  24. I really want to get into dirt bike racing. Any advice? I'm 15 years old and a girl. Is it mostly guys? Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks
