    Considering a 05 yz250

    I went to a 05 yz250 from an 02 cr250. Just a way all around better bike. It turns very good. The best thing you can do to the bike is get the forks revalved, add a skid plate and raditior braces and go. The engine has much more lowe end compared to the honda. Erik

    How much improved is the '06 CRF450 over '05

    I agree the only thing your looking at is resale value between the 2 bikes. Erik

    I passed.......

    Ryan in my personal opinion the PE was much harder. I feel the EIT was bascially what I learned in college. I did take it a couple of years out, but I think compared to how much I studied for the PE it was relatively easy to pass, especially if you are from a mechancial backround. Erik

    I passed.......

    Broken Spoke, the best advice I can give you is study with a partner. I know that is not always feasible but if possible is any one of your co-workers taking it also?? What discipline are you planning to take?? When I was studying for the test I bought a condo, planned a wedding, still rode at...

    I know this sounds crazy, but for the last 11 years since I started mechanical engineering in college, my goal was to become a professional engineer. Thank you Tony for advice. I currently am a design build engineer(HVAC, steam and power systems) for a Mechanical Contractor in Denver. I...

    King Kong!

    Movie was great, a bit long. Special effect where amazing and the fight seen with the TREX was cool. As for remakes, they are not even close. Erik

    Save Me (us) From The Dark Side !!!!

    Okie, market share is market share. Yes from an economic standpoint there is no sense in making 2 bikes for 1 class except if your selling them. I know yamaha sells a boatload of YZ250's and 125's. They have been stealing Honda's hold on that share of the market for the past couple of years. The...

    Save Me (us) From The Dark Side !!!!

    Old fart you are right in pure economic terms, but remember they still will have to compete with 4 strokes which means yamaha and suzuki will keep upping the ante to lure buyer to there 2 strokes. This is a generalized question for 4 stroke people. Would you go back to a 2 stroke if serious...

    Save Me (us) From The Dark Side !!!!

    The next 2 years will determine if 2 strokes stay alive. If yamaha and suzuki continue to upgrade there bikes the future looks good. Honda is a lost cause, basically i hope they stop making 2 strokes to give even more market share to yamaha, which in turn means better bikes. Erik

    What is the grail?

    Maybe Jeremy can anser this question. Is there much more technology in "A" works components(RC, CR, Windham, etc) compared to what is production. I understand the tolerances are much tighter and workmanship greater nut is there really a difference from what an average Joe can buy for 5K. Erik

    Save Me (us) From The Dark Side !!!!

    If the AMA wanted to fix the situation they can do a couple of things The first is lower the sound limit. (which they did). Next is lower the weight limits to 184lbs and 206 lbs respectively. (For a 2 stroke to use this to its full advantage) Allow a displacement of 150cc in the 125cc class and...

    Save Me (us) From The Dark Side !!!!

    The real dilemma is in the 125 class. A 250f is head and shoulders better than a 125 if you race. Now the downside is the catastrophic engine failure that costs 2K to fix. I love 250f but feel a 450f is just way too much bike for me and chose to ride a 250 2-stroke. I can't see 250's going away...

    What is the grail?

    I think in future both high speed and low speed circuits should be adjustable via clickers on the forks. Also just like the superbikes, TI or DLC coatings will eventually become standard. I definetly think KYB is on the right track, twin chambers are the way to go. What I always wondered was why...

    06 YZ250 Ride.report

    The only majotrfault I could find with the 05 was that the forks break in and soften up and the 739 tire is horrendous for colorado conditions, other than that the bike is great. If i can recommend one thing for 07 is to put higher bars standard on the bike and give me a fuel injected throttle...
