I burnt my clutch up today. Thankfully it went out completely within 50 feet of my truck.

2 weeks ago - Golden Spike Hare Scrambles, Packwood WA, low sided at 70 mph on concrete... It was just off the start, running top 5 in a wave that had 30 or more riders in it... sparks flying, gear getting eaten up, skin removing and waiting to get plowed in the back by another rider doing 70mph:eek: I somehow managed to pop up and slide on a knee pad just as the a$$ of my pants were gone. After the race I managed to get out and measure the marks from where the tire broke loose to where the bike stopped sliding - 240' !!!

Here's my pants -


My scabs have receded nicely and I am now ready to install - New rear axle and nut, new right side foot peg and new right side bark buster... all in all the bike came out pretty much unscathed, I got up and managed to catch my class leaders after two laps but had too much pain in the tail bone to continue... taking this sunday off and just watching my son race:busted:

I almost flipped over the handlebars. I rode over a bank that I always use to before but this time, i noticed (too late) that a front end loader took a beice out of it and it was now almost straight down about 5 feet. It was too late for me to get on the gas so i panicked and let go of the handlebars and leaned back so I woulnd't flip over (figured it would be better just to fall over) and it worked, but at the bottom i leaned ahead and grabbed the bars and drove out of it. I couldn't beleive it, I then stopped and got off the bike to take a breather and my buddy (who just got his own WR yesterday) seen it and said, too bad we never had a video camera of that, it was wicked. I got so lucky. Now I know letting go of the handlebars wasn't the right thing to do, but like i said i got suprised and panicked, and it was too late to come on the gas to get the front end up and jump down over it. Anyhow me and my WR made it out fine so it's another good day :thumbsup:

      Hello everyone, been looking around on here for a couple weeks and figured I'd finally drop my question for some feedback. Looking for a bike, obviously or I'd be on a different forum, somewhere in the 250/300 range. Heres some info about me and the typical riding I'll be doing..
      My specs: Male, 190 lbs, 5'10, 28 years old. 
      Riding Experience: Two wheel mostly street, R6, R1, Harley etc. I've ridden most of em. Off road has been mostly quad, except one trip down the trails on a Yamaha 450 2t (holy moses that was quick). Ridden quads for a few years, Polaris 850, Yamaha/Honda 250's (banshee style) at Silver Lake and on trails. Trails we ride are in Grayling which are a mix of hard pack and loose sand (tank trails). 
      Planned Riding: the above mentioned sand dunes and trails. Doubt I'll ever touch an actual Mx track. Will use a paddle tire when in the dunes. In my mind I've narrowed it down to the KTM 250/300 XCW or Yamaha YZ250X. Not really a Honda fan. 
      Not trying to open another KTM vs Yamaha thread, Ive read plenty of those. Just looking for some feedback and ensure these are the bikes I should be interested in and if 2 stroke should be my route? I like the easy maintenance but also like the idea of fuel injected 4t. I don't want to be beating the heck out of a 4t in the dunes and turn it into a bigger $ pit than these toys are already. I would prefer having a headlight, 250X does not come with one while both KTM's do (unless I go Yamaha 4t with the WR250f). Thanks for your feedback..

      I am looking for a YZ125 and have found a 99 for 1300 and an 03 for 1600 both in pretty nice condition. Obviously going to negotiate the prices down however I was wondering which one you guys would suggest. Ive been doing research and know that the 03 is lighter with a modified frame though it has a 5 speed. The 99 motor is well liked for the power and reliability.
      I will be doing strictly trail riding so whats the better option here?

      So I recently purchased a 08 CRF250R I currently am having many issues with this bike and need as much help as I can get to fix it, so basically whats going on is I can't even start the bike without pop starting it kick start doesn't work for some reason the bike doesn't even drive for that long before turning off and it back fires and makes a LOUD popping sound and I have no idea whats going on with the bike I was also driving today and the sprocket broke some how and the gears won't even in-gage meaning I will kick it in first gear or second or third and won't even move as its in neutral can someone who knows about these type of bikes knows how to help me out a little?
      Thanks.. Dave

      So I was cutting my neighbors lawn when i came across this bike in my neighbors barn. They said i could have it for free and i thought it would be a great thing to try and fix up. But after looking at it and doing some research i cant find what it actually is. I believe  it is a 1985 YZ 125, but i am not sure. Anyone know what it is and where i might be able to find some parts for it? Or if it would be better just top sell it for parts. Thanks!

      For sale is my 2015 Beta 350RR. 2734 miles and 120 hours. Just had some top end work done by Sierra BMW and BETA. Fresh air filter and oil. This is an awesome dual sport bike. Or you can strip the lights and turn signals and have a single track weapon, your choice. This bike will do it all. Unfortunately, I've been riding my 2 stroke lately and don't have room or the time to maintain 2 bikes. My loss is your gain! Front tire only has a few rides on it, the rear needs to be changed. Beta's are super reliable and amazing machines that rival KTM and Husky!

      -Mylers oversized radiators and bulletproof radiator guards
      -Folding ARC clutch and brake levers (I have the stock levers as well)

      -FMF powercore 4 with silent core/spark arrestor. I've got the stock spark arrestor as well. Racing compliant!
      -Boano racing billet brake pedal with brake tip
      -FJ Fasst co. brake clevis
      -Billet chain blocks
      -upgraded steel oil pump gears- the plastic stock ones are prone to failure

      extra tubes and rimlocks
      Printed and bound owners manual and service manual

      It's a dirt bike so it has some cosmetic damage. Some chipped plastic and scratches on the swingarm.
