Radiator Coolant Basic Maintenance
There are tons of threads on ThumperTalk about oil changes, but far fewer on radiator fluid. Because of this, I thought that this would be a good topic to cover. At a minimum, radiator fluid should be changed once per year. If you race, at least...

I had a left knee TKA in January. (See attached.) Looking to have the other one done next. Should I wear some kind of brace when I return to riding? Any suggestions for which one? BTW, what do you think of that right knee of mine? :goofy:

While riding today, one of my buddies was trying a hill climb and he fell about 3/4 of the way up. Went head over heels and landed with a dislocated patella. Luckily it was early in the day, so we had plenty of time to deal with him before it got dark. But we were pretty deep into the woods, at...
I want to swap the plastics from my 2006 Ktm 125sx to the newer look of the 2014 125's. I would just like to know if it is possible and if so what modifications or parts would i need. Thanks! Here's a pic of the bike.
Hi guys i just bought a yz 125 2005, the bike starts great, runs also very nice but i was curious about condition of the piston. So i made few photos and that's how it looks like. I'm worried about those weird edges on the right and left side of port. Is this normal ? Or it's bad...

Ive spent the last 2 times trying to diagnose it. I know what a timing chain slap sounds like and this aint it. The bike has roughly . 7...

Hey my dad has a 2006 Honda Rancher ES (electric push button shift) 350 with about 6500 miles on. The problem is the transmission is in neutral but the display is just showing a horizontal line as if it can't shift all the way. It has a new battery so i don't think that is the problem. When I try...
Hi all, I have a KTM 530 2010 with very low miles. I just purchased it and am having a really difficult time setting getting it dialed in. It starts ok and has lots of pull when you roll it on. The problem is that there are pops/mini backfires when you let off. Another issue is when you are just...
I've tried a lot, from 30wt to 90wt, all sorts of motorcycle specific lubes and waxes. For the last 6 years or so I've used Champion Chain Lube. It's a lithium spray grease, maybe $5-6 a large can at Walmart. I think a can lasts me a year, maybe 8k. Dry wipe the chain, lube every 50...
