• It's Spring, ready to ride? Let's be sure..

    So, it's starting to warm up all over the country. Batteries are being charged for that long awaited day of starting up that metal beast in hopes of an enjoyable ride. With that being said, it's important to remember your basics. I write this because I myself am a victim of this. , Fuel-OK, Ignition-OK, Neutral-OK, Engine-OK. This is quite important, not as basic as it seems. If you miss one step, your bike wont run! So, before you start to troubleshoot why your bike isn't starting--double check your neutral.

    You've had a nice relaxing winter, and you want to hop on the bike. Understandable. But remember also that you have been a bit out of practice. Personally, I would recommend a few trips around the neighborhood to reacquaint yourself with your motorcycle.

    Just a few quick tips to make your upcoming rides run more smoothly.

    When we say chain "stretch," we really infer chain wear.

    Since each link shares such a small amount of wear, the wear is measured over a series of links. A worn chain will be longer than when it...

    The CRF250L is going to be A LOT less “energetic” than your previous “R” model.
    The engine will have 2/3rds the power of the R model. The suspension will be a horrible compromise of street & dirt....
