Alpinestars A1 Roost Guard
I’ll never forget a hard wreck that I had as a kid, where I was thrown into my handlebars. I hit hard enough to knock the wind out of me and break the skin across the width of my chest. I started wearing a chest protector shortly there...

Alright guys, figured I would share my diamond in the rough. Being a baller on a budget i was contemplating a trailer, maybe a small camper. I wasn't sure. The goal was to be able to get to the races, sleep if we needed too without a hotel, and keep the bikes secure. So..... I got the bright idea...

If you could only do two exercises for getting "dirt bike strong", what would they be? I ask because my work has a full gym and I could devote 30 min total in there each day. I'm thinking two core strength exercises for 20 min and cardio for 10 min. Thanks guys.
So I have a 01 RM125. I started it up and it was idling with higher revs, it ran like shit and kept slipping gears. It ending up bogging out and now it won't start. I changed the spark plug and it still won't turn over. The engine is not seized. Thoughts?
I have a 2004 kx85 just rebuilt with a hot rods crank, wiseco piston and replated cylinder from powerseals.

Well, after fishing season this summer, being the irresponsible fourteen year old that I am, I paid $1000 for a not quite good condition 06 Blaster. There's loads wrong with it, and it would take me forever to list all the problems with it, but I'm wondering, what do I start with? I still have mo...
I have been riding dirt bikes on trails (no dunes or racing) and sold my bike - it was too much maintenance. I have decided to get a sport quad for trails riding in the woods. It will be a mainly medium speed (2nd/3rd gear stuff) with a mix of muddy spots, hard pack and sand. Typical Michigan tra...
Hey guys! I am thinking about getting a Zuke LTZ400 Sport Quad. My only hesitation is that I ride in some muddy areas on occasion and I want to be prepared in case I get stuck in some mud. I don't see many sport quads with winches, are they impractical or ?? Thanks! ...

Nov 30, 2010 02:53 PM
I love to race motocross, there's no doubt about it. I'm sure you think the same if you've tried it. But if there's one thing I hate the most, it would probably be a broken bike on race-day. I try to keep up on maintenance as best I can so that my dirt bikes won't fail when I...
