Pictures and Video / Stolen 2002 KTM 400 EXC, Webster, NY
« on: November 27, 2018, 05:31:16 pm »
Here is a picture of my buddy's street plated 2002 KTM 400 EXC, VIN # VBKEXJ4382M340230.  It was stolen on November 13, 2018.  The perpetrator broke into his shed around 6:00 AM and drove it across the backyards of approximately 10 homes on John Leo Drive in Webster.

He saved like $18 on his insurance policy by not adding comprehensive / theft insurance.

How did I miss the product launch of this???

I have a suzuki cougar 100cc 2 stroke parts bike the motor runs however the clutch basket is bad meaning I can't shift gears plus may be other issue 150 o/b


The air cooled 4-Valve XR250 is back but with fuel injection and now they call it the CRF250F (I don't understand though why they have two "Fs" in the model name):

GasGas is moving full throttle towards the electric bike movement.

And TM now has an "injected" 2-stroke with electric start:

Work in progress ...

Print it out and pin it to the fridge, so she knows you'll be gone on these weekends ...

So I picked up this gem the other day as a leftover from Phil at Five Star Cycle, just outside of Erie, Pennsylvania.  So after I secured a NY street plate, I started with the accessories:

- KTM Power Parts Expansion Chamber Guard
- KTM Power Parts Preload Adjuster (not installed yet)
- KTM Power Parts Skid Plate
- KTM Power Parts Exhaust Flange Guard
- KTM Power Parts Swing Arm Protection
- KTM Power Parts Front Axle Puller
- Nuetech Tubliss Front and Rear
- Enduro Engineering Spark Arrestor End Cap
- Ballistic Nylon Regular Fender Bag
- Tusk Fork Bleeders

This should be good enough for this year's Jersey Hammer Run Dual Sport.  But over the winter, I intend to install a straight rate, heavier rear spring with the KTM Power Parts Preload Adjuster, as well as some good bark busters and a steering dampener.  I shouldn't have much more to do to it after that.

As many of you know, I recently bought a new 2018 KTM 250 XCW (carbed) for a KILLER price and I was able to street plate it.  However, if I was not on an Orange or White (Husqvarna) bike, I would probably be on this bike or a WR250F.

Anywho, here is the 2019 Yamaha YZ250FX First Ride Review:

Dirtbike, quad, and street bike talk / 2019 Kawasaki KX450
« on: June 28, 2018, 04:28:59 pm »

Beta seizes the opportunity of a market void and launches the 2019 200 RR 2-Stroke:

200 two-stroke: The chassis and engine design derive from its smaller sister the 125, while providing broader torque and ensuring extremely low weight and great handling but with decidedly higher torque and power. Oil injection and electric start make this a complete bike that is just perfect for Off Road enthusiasts of all ages and ability.
