  2. Hey guys I'm purchasing a 2019 yamaha tt125 and are looking into future upgrades for it. I know I should modify the airbox but should I do that right away? Do you guys know any upgrades that you like? Or anything you've heard positive reviews about. Also not looking to spend too much money. Anything you guys know would be great. Thanks, Jack
  3. I have ridden sport bikes my whole life, and I own a supermoto, but I have very little experience doing trail riding. I am very much interested in buying a trail bike, and this is a great time of year for buying bikes it seems. I have ridden a four wheeler through the trails but I want a cycle. Type of trails in my area: Rocky, coal / anthracite, 25% of trails are very muddy, some tight single track with some dense wooded areas. Fall/Winter season brings huge mud pits that would require dancing around close to trees or blasting through. Apparently one of the densest areas of Hill-climbs in the North East. What I'm looking for: A low maintenance bike that is kind to beginners, but weight is a big factor since I'll probably struggle on hill climbs and dropping it in the mud. Budget is $2500 max ready to go. What I've been thinking of: YZ250 RM250 CR250 KDX200 KTM 2 stroke models, but they are rarely within budget. Lastly all 4 stroke counterparts of the above, but interested in 2 strokes due to maintenance. These are just the used dirt bikes that seem to land within budget in my area, but some of these bikes may be harder to use for beginners. I was also contemplating the 125 2-strokes but I don't know if they are too zingy for the stuff in my area.
  4. Hey so I have ridden a drz125L for almost a year now. It’s really really comfortable...too comfortable-I’m ready to upgrade! !! I am 14 , 5 foot 6, 115 pounds and I do all trail riding. I am fairly experienced, not a pro by any means but good at what I do I suppose. What do y’all think?
  5. So, I found an absolutely beautiful klx300 yesterday on craigslist for $2400. Has roughly 50 original miles. I got it from the original owner who spent the past several years building it. Has all stroker pars including carb, cam, full exhaust system and other little odds and ends. also has brand new factory connection suspension set up for my weight, baja lighting kit, and a street title! Wondering what are the must haves to make it a dual sport like tires etc. It has DOT knobbies but it will be a bit aggressive for the street. thanks
  6. I just spent my first 10 hours on a 2017 Husqvarna FX 350, split over 2 weekends and I figured I'd post my experience with it so far in case anyone is in the market for a new bike and considering this one. Just a little background: I'm 34 and have been riding for about 12 years. Nothing competitive, just trails and practice track, but I'd like to think I've pushed myself pretty hard across varying types of terrain and I seem to be able to keep up with most people I find out on the trails. I do a mix of tight woods, riverbed mudding, moderate hill climbs, sand, whoops and rocky stuff across the span of Texas environments including snow, rain, bitter cold and blistering dry and humid heat. I always have to go to work on Monday so I don't try any trick riding or crazy jumps or any of that wrist breaking stuff. I started on a Honda 230F, then a CRF250X, then a KTM 450 XC-W before this Husky, with some rides on a RMZ-250, WR250 and YZ250 mixed in. I had to pick a new bike out because my KTM 450 got trashed when I sucked a bunch of sand into the engine. Going from the CRF250X to the KTM 450 was a pleasant jump in power, but felt alot bulkier and less nimble. I got used to it, but never really felt as agile as I was on the 250, so I had been contemplating the idea of a 350 as an "In between" for a long time. I was also getting really sick of working on carburetors so fuel injection was a big selling point for me. During my first ride out I was really impressed with the fuel/air system. It was really cold out, so usually I'd have to choke the bike, coax it to life, baby it for a little while or maybe play with the idle speed until it warmed up, then put the idle back to normal after everything was warm. Not anymore. The FX350 is fuel injected of course, so no choke. It has a little light on the handlebar that lights up for a second when you first hit the start button (no stock kickstarter, but comes with lithium-ion battery stock) to let you know the fuel pump is building pressure. Then the engine cranks up instantly. In the worst case scenario there is a little knob on the throttle body that you can press in to temporarily set the idle speed higher, but when everything is up to temp you don't have to stop to put it back to normal, you just twist the throttle forward and the knob pops back out. The throttle response I got was perfect. Better than the most perfectly tuned carbeurated bike I've ever ridden. That instant power delivery was actually a little problematic at first. I found myself tending to tail slide in greasy clay and leaves quite a bit and I had to use a little more focus on controlling my throttle hand until I got used to it. Luckily the FX has a traction control setting on the left handlebar. It supposedly works by altering the ignition mapping to reduce engine power output if it detects a sudden increase in engine speed without a corresponding increase in throttle position. I couldn't actually perceive this "power metering" in action, but I could definitely tell that the tail quit sliding around as much when the TC system was active, as well as I seemed to have less trouble ascending hills in sand and loose gravel. The stock gearing didn't cause me any issues when I was moving at a good pace, but I did have alot of problems stalling out when picking through technical climbs and woods. I dropped down to a 13 tooth front sprocket and that problem disappeared entirely. I may go up a tooth in the rear later on, but that'd just be to take up the slack in the chain that I created by loosing a tooth in the front. The suspension is pretty sweet. The reviews I've read said that the suspension was too plush from the factory, but you always here that from motocrossers riding a trail bike. I found the ride to be a bit rough on the standard setting so I dropped compression and rebound damping everywhere by 2 clicks and it made it perfect for the rocks and roots I was bouncing around. When I opened it up and hit some ledges and landings pretty hard I did feel like it was close to bottoming out so I turned the fork compression dampening back up to standard. On this bike there's a knob on the right fork for adjusting the compression dampening that I could actually adjust while riding so when the terrain changes you can adapt on the fly. The spring preload works with air pressure, comes with a pump with built in digital gauge. No springs to change out. Overall the bike is incredibly nimble, responsive and forgiving. It feels like it likes a more aggressive riding style but not to the point of alienating the laid back weekend warrior. I spent a lot of time at idle watching my kids pick their bikes up off the ground and fight there way up muddy, rutted out hills and I did boil over a few times. I'm going to buy the cooling fan kit even though that's probably a relatively rare situation for most people. The lithium ion battery and electric starter seem rock solid. I killed and started the bike in cold weather a dozen times an hour helping the kids get up off the ground and I never had a single hiccup or a hint of reduced power output. Maintenance seems pretty easy. Only one oil circuit so its half the time and filters and crap of the KTM 450 I came off of. I don't know if that's a change on the new KTMs or not but either way it's a welcome feature on the Husky. The air filter goes in and out really easily, no fighting with alignment and seals and getting tacky filter oil all over everything while the filter laughs at you. I'll know more about any issues in the next 100 hours or so, but as of now I highly recommend the FX 350 for just about anyone.
  7. I’m in the process of doing a ground up rebuild on my 2003 Yz125 and it’s mainly gonna be a trail bike. I’ve decided to put an 18” wheel in the back (18x2.15 rim size) but not sure what size tire to get. I’ve always thought bigger is better and not sure what size is too big and wheel (?) rub against the swing arm. Any thoughts?
  8. Hi all, new to the forum. Let me start by saying that I've researched the heck out of this topic with no luck. Went to my local dealer but the sales guy was not at all helpful in answering any of my questions. So, if there is already a thread out there on this topic please point me to it. I realize that these two bikes are totally different animals. The WR250 inspired by it's race proven MX counterpart whereas the CRF250F is essentially a replacement for the CRF230F. I do not race or have any intention to do so. I really only ride on ATV trails with my friends and occasionally ride down fire roads. I'm in my twenties but don't ride that aggressively. I am not an expert rider but I am not a beginner. I started on a KX100, then went up to a TTR230. I got bored with that and bought a YZ250F. Not the best decision I've made. Partly my fault for not doing the research before getting it. The maintenance was a nightmare on it. I changed the oil religiously, air filter, kept a logbook with everything done to it and it still blew up once it hit 27 hours which seems really low but I don't know. Maybe I just had a bad one. I loved the reliability of my TTR230 and the YZ250F did not even come close. Now, for a disclaimer I did buy the bike used. It has 23 hours on it. Did the previous owner ride it hard and sell me a ticking time bomb? Yea, maybe. Upon researching the issue though after my bike blew up, I found it to be pretty common with the 250 four strokes to need lots and lots and lots of maintenance and even then, they can sill blow up or need top end rebuilds. Coming from my bullet proof 230, I was not a happy camper. But again, I should've done the research and known what I was getting into. So, in the search for my next bike. Reliability and longevity are huge for me. I absolutely love the new WR250F but don't want a repeat of my YZ250F. I know that the WR has a new engine plus it has some different parts compared to the MX version. But will it still have the same issues I experienced on my YZ250F? Besides my concerns with reliability and longevity, I love it. The WR250F looks like it will have plenty of power for what I want to do and do it comfortably thanks to it's really nice suspension. The only thing keeping me from pulling the trigger on it is my fear of it's longevity. I want the reliability of my TTR230 (or close to it) but the power of my YZ250F. Will the WR250F fill this goal? As for the Honda, I like that the CRF250F will behave similar to my TTR in terms of low end torque. I loved how torquey that bike was in the low end. It pulled like a tractor. My concern with the CRF250F is the suspension mainly. I am also a little concerned that the CRF will feel slow and underpowered coming from my YZ250F. Even though it's a 250, it is still air cooled, which means the motor is a tank and will run for a very long time with little maintenance just like my TTR, but after riding my YZ250F, I am a little worried I won't be happy with the power. Any advice on this matter would be greatly appreciated. I have been without a bike since my YZ250F broke on me and am eager to get back to riding.
