Maple doesn't want to get rid of you, he's just having a mini melt down at the moment. Pay no heed to him.
And no, I've never heard of the monster joe brand. Sounds dodgy as to me though.
I dunno about the mobile version but I copy-n-paste the second link down of the choices when I click "share media" and they show up here. Ind I delete the "HTTP" bit that comes up in the box on the DR site when I press "inset a pic". It took me a few goes to get it to work recently as DR and PB have changed their formats lately.
Patience is a virtue doing pics the first time but once you crack it, it's a piece of cake.
There's plenty of us on here that would challenge you for the dumb title, don't you worry about that...
Haha, I gave up on setting up a youtube account, I just didn't have the patience for it. It's in the too-hard-basket at the moment...
I just editted my post above a little to put some more info in to it too...
My daughter is nine but she's pretty tall for her age. The KLX is probably a little too big for her but i was too mean to buy her a bike in between. She'll cope with it though, I had the confidence to buy it as she's been riding a mates TTR125L lately, so I knew she'd be alright.
Don't pay any heed to Maple, he's just going through one of his phases. He's a good bastard but now and then he loses the plot...
He was talking about Thumpertalk, which looks like quite a good forum but this one seems a lot more personal. That's my outlook on it, anyway.
No ones going anywhere. If we wanted to go we'd already be gone.
I ain't in Maryland, I lve in upside-down-land. New Zealand.
Yep, the clutch is tough when you're learning, my daughters have learnt on a PW50 and a DRZ70, before I bought a clutch bike for them.
I just pulled my SD out and it's a class 4. I don't know if that's good or bad but I've had no issues with it. Mine is a local (australian) brand but I would think it's just a generic thing, with a brand on it. I don't really know which ones are good or bad, I just figure if it's got a reasonable brand name on it, it'll be fine.
Oops, double post. Two has got to be twice as good...
You must be having an bad day Sean...
To be fair, I ride an RMZ 450 (effectively the same as yours) and I reckon the MX 4 bangers are pretty good.
I drop the oil on mine every time I ride it and it and clean the airfilter, and it's been no problem. It's got over 80 hrs on it now and I haven't touched the valves. (Dear Lord, please don't let Masterlink read this... LOL) I'm not planning on touching the top end until at least a hundy hours either. That's not bad going.
I run mostly genuine (read, expensive) airfilters in my bike too, I reckon they're better quality tthan the aftermarket ones. There's a lot more foam in them. I have a couple of No-toil ones and they're relatively cheap, I woulda thought they'd be a dime a dozen in the US. You could try them to get your costs down.
I can't really see how your costs are going through the roof at this point, unless you're turning over mega hours, I woulda thought your bike was still relatively young.
