  1. Hello fellow ThumperTalkers! I have been look around for a new bike recently and am considering getting a leftover 2019 CRF450R. I have about 5 years of off-road experience, but I have never owned a 450. Where it becomes problematic is with my size, as I am about 125 pounds and 5 feet 7 inches. Would it be safe to assume that I could effectively ride it with only sag, compression, and rebound adjustments? If not, would I have to change the springs and/or valving? You may be asking why I don’t want a CRF250R, and my answer to that would be that I do not want to deal with constant maintenance since I know I will be riding at much higher RPMs on a 250 compared to a 450. The two bikes are also the same price, so I feel like I would get more value out of a 450, especially when factoring in maintenance saving. Anyways, would I be fine riding a 2019 CRF450R with the stock suspension at 125lbs? Thanks for any feedback in advance!
  2. I am going to replace the fork seals on some 05' CRF 450R forks and have 2 different viscosity oils. Since the damper assembly takes X amount of fluid and the fork tubes take X amount of fluid, one quart won't be enough. Since I have heard or observed the oil in the fork tubes is simply for lubrication and not alot more, would it be safe to run the 7w in the fork tubes and the 5w in the damper? Or should I run 7w in the damper and 5w in the tubes, I know manual calls for 5w HP which appears to be 17 @ 40 so the 5w Bel Ray is about spot on. I am not launching off any major sweet jumps like Pedro and Napoleon(more than likely little stuff, maybe some smaller doubles but mostly trail riding) Also some supermoto stuff running another set of wheels and street tires. I am about 150 and have been known to hit 160lbs when I really let myself go. I have 2 sealed quarts of oil. Bel Ray high performance fork oil, 5w(17.1 @ 40) - 1 quart of this. Bel Ray high performance fork oil, 7w(29 @ 40) - 1 quart of this I also have 2 sealed quarts of 15w Bel-Ray, but its older than 5 years and will have to be tossed out more than likely. I know I could also run some 0-20w motor oil in the outer fork tubes if I wanted to. Was more curious of any advantages or disadvantages on where I should put the 7w, I am thinking with my riding style, surfaces and weight probably the 5w in the damper is what I should run and the 7w in the fork tubes. Thanks!
  3. Afternoon, I am looking to finally upgrade my rear shock, after about two years of avoiding it. I believe the bike, 2004 crf250x, is completely stock except the front suspension, which means the weight for the rear shock is mid-high 100s, but I weigh about 250lbs. I can't really figure out what is right for me, but i think what I have found (https://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/parts/race-tech-shock-spring-p?0&v=2824&idd1=5903&idd2=5183) is probably right for me. That link is obviously to the rear shock, but even if that's what I want/need, is there anything other part I need to buy for this to be properly fit for my size. P.S. I am a pretty casual rider, who rides about once a month for a weekend down at the farm. In my own world, I'm a good rider, but that's keeping in mind how often I ride. Its typically trail riding, some wide open, some pretty tight or off-trail riding. Thanks for any help.
  4. Has anyone bought the Zeta triple tree? It’s made of aluminum and I’m assuming stock is steel. I’m tryin to find out how much weight can be saved by switching to their fork clamps.
  5. Looking to put a Steely 8oz flywheel weight on my 17 350XCF and would like some input from people who are using them. What do you like and not like about it? Can I take it off if I don't like it? I have always run a Rekluse in my CRF450R's and feel I am a faster rider without it now, that's why I am leaning towards the flywheel weight for Harescrambles and trail riding. Thx
  6. I can't find a light weight flywheel to replace the one in my 2014 500EXC. It is going to be used strictly for hill climbing so quick shifting is very important and I need to be able to get the bike up to high RPM's as fast as possible. A flywheel weight is easy to find, but I can't find a replacement that is "lighter". Can anyone help please
  7. I've been looking for my 10 year old with no success, anyone found a weighted flywheel?
  8. I searched and only saw posts from a few years back or older model year YZ250s so I thought I would post this. I have a 2018 YZ250X and based on suggestions from a thread I posted on "what YZ250X mods out of the gate?" I'm looking into adding a flywheel weight. This Steahly model comes in 11 or 13 oz. ... and this MSR model comes in 9, 11 or 13 oz. Any suggestions, especially on how much weight, would be much appreciated. Also would appreciate any install tips on the simplest tools needed for install, e.g., is spark plug stop the easiest? Thanks!
  9. Coming off 10 years of KTM 200's from custom built linkage 200 to old school SX and a few XC and XCW thrown in. Looking to move to more modern platform as the 200's are gone. Not interested in the BETA 200 primarily due to weight and suspension upgrade cost. Also might be time for some additional power as clutching a 200 requires more effort although it is fun! With that said the new 2021 250 2st Factory Edition comes to mind, 1. What is the ACTUAL weight of the 250 2st factory edition. Anyone know or care? 2. Is it possible to fit a kicker to the cases? When deciding if I was going KTM or not again I settled on a 250, the 250 vs the 300 to suit my riding style, more close to a 200 and my weight of 158 (soaking wet and with a beer and bowl of ice cream in me). I am going to assume that all the opinion, facts and other prejudices of the KTM 250/300 would apply to the Sherco line? I had heard it rumored that the 250 had a few less vibes, true or not? My understanding was that the counter balance system in the Sherco is not quite as elaborate or technically effecient as the KTM setup. I am ok with that as long as the vibes are not a detriment on the 250. Last thing to consider is if the Carb is actually a benefit or a drawback on the Sherco. I should start a separate thread on that.
  10. After a light dirt bike I can register for road use (Australia). 250EXC-F was recommended by dealer. Note I'm not a really experienced dirt rider. However I'm mature enough to ride anything and stay within my limits. I've ridden high powered road bikes and enjoyed them, within my limits. When I check the KTM Website the spec sheet tells me the 250EXC-F 103kg http://www.ktm.com/au/enduro/250-exc-f-1/ and the 350EXC-F weighs 104kg without fuel http://www.ktm.com/au/enduro/350-exc-f-1/ Even the 450EXC-F is only 3kg heavier than the 250 at 106kg http://www.ktm.com/au/enduro/450-exc-f/ The weight differences are tiny. So my first question is why would you buy a 250 if the 350 only weighs 1kg more (450 only 3kg more) and I am guessing would have more torque and power lower in the rev range, making it more tractable and easier to ride? Obviously if you give the bigger capacity bikes a handful of throttle they are going to require higher skills. However you don't have to wring a bigger capacity bike's neck, just sit in the fat midrange and enjoy life. Just like owning say a ZX-14R Kwaka road missile. You don't have to aspire to doing 299km/hr to want this bike, it's the low down smooth grunt that is appealing. Feel free to take this argument apart. Another benefit of buying more cubic inches (aside from maybe having to pay less attention to gear selection), the engine won't be pushed as hard, reducing maintenance (maybe). Again, shoot me down in flames if appropriate. It also unclear to me what the difference between an EXC-F & an XC-F model is. Is it purely a matter of one being able to be registered (EXC-F) and the other not? There's no model comparison tool on the Website so it's laborious to work out the difference between all the models. The 350 Freeride at 99.5kg http://www.ktm.com/au/freeride/freeride-350-1/ seems a good option. Does it make more low rev torque and power than the 250 and/or 350 EXC-Fs? Maybe it's just got a less stressed lower tech engine that would require less maintenance. Seat height is lower at 915mm (as against 960 for EXC-Fs) is attractive due to my short legs. It seems just a bike built for slower riding due to shorter travel, less ground clearance, smaller brakes etc. I'll be riding on the road only to get to the dirt. But want to be able to keep up with traffic at say 90km/hr for short stretches.
  11. Hello everyone, I know that there are several other posts asking if certain bikes are not right for people but i couldn't find one for this. If there is one, a link would be appreciated. I have a 2014 yz125 that i race woods with, I've been racing the past several years on it but I believe its time for an upgrade. This year I'm moving up to B class so I was looking at a 250, sepcifically a yz250x. The only thing is that I weigh 155lbs w/o gear so i was wondering if anyone has any input on a similar bike, if it was too much power, too heavy for woods, etc. Thanks!
  12. So I have taken a good dinger or two on my 4 year old (I think) Fox V4. I ordered up a newer Fox V3 with mips online and the same size medium is too small and doesn't come down on my head, it feels like there are a few inches above the top of my head. I think the large would be to big. So I happened to be near a shop a few hours away and tried on a Fly F2 carbon and it fit well thought like the Fox it's not all that light. I am 145 lbs and after a full day of technical moto or snowmobiling I can really start feeling the weight. It's also very bulky, perhaps part of that is the Snell certification. I don't know much about the . So I had my eye on a Suomy Alpha as the it's about a half a pound lighter than either the Fox V3 or the Fly F2. I do like the MIPS but not 100% needed (hopefully). The Airoh looks good but no reputable US dealers so I don't want to buy something from Italy and have it not fit or have problems getting parts. I don't live near any shops that carry Suomy. Anyone have one that can say how it fits compared to newer Fly F2 carbon and /or Fox V3 mips helmets. I also tried on a friends Bell moto 9 carbon and that fit OK but felt a little more round so I think I might have a more oval head. Plus they are pretty pricey for being about the same weight as a Fox or Fly Carbon. Any help, thoughts or advice is much appreciated. I also run Oakley Crowbar goggles with prescription inserts so I would like something with a good size opening so they fit as well (I do take off the nose piece so it's easier to get on). THANKS
  13. At the moment I’m in an 85 big wheel and can easily flat foot both feet. I would prefer a 125 but not many are available, whereas 250F’s on the other side are looking closer to my price/availability range than 125s. My only hold back in a 250 is would it be too heavy? I weigh approx 130 lbs (60kgs) and am around 5’9. Would I also be better if adjusting the shock and forks on my 85 and stick with that for longer. Any help would be appreciated
