you are a troll. i guess nambotin, raga, etc, are less serious riders

you didn't answer my question (what gg have you owned, what big bore have you owned, what serious competition have you competed in) therefore i can only take your opinion as moot, and discount EVERYTHING you say. same as everyone else. every thread you touch turns to shit, wonder why?

Personally I am only familiar with using bikes for serious competition purposes, and maybe this is the reason US based play bike riders get so worked up about my suggesting things like its better to use a proper full synthetic pre-mix only 2T oil, rather than autolube types that seem to be favoured by the play bike riders?

Nothing at all wrong with using a bike for trail or play bike riding, but if you are riding in serious competition and want to win, it seems a good idea to regard machine preparation in a different way to a play biker?
I get it you are all butthurt because since 1980 American riders have come across the pond and laid waste to the World ............... 22 times and the UK has won how many MX des Nations titles.

Must be the autolube.

Not sure you can compare US professional MX racers (who are getting paid double what a European rider would make), to middle aged play bike riders, on worn out 30 yr old open class MX bikes, dribbling neat autolube oil out of their exhausts?

If it bothers you so much why do you continually troll through these threads posting the same BS.

This thread was about a KX500 vs CR500 which you know nothing about.

I had a KX 500 and thought it was a great bike.

If you knew anything about demographics most dirt bikes in America are being bought by 40+ year olds. The biggest classes tend to be the Vet classes.

There are so many 50 plus riders at some of the races I have been to that they split it ino 3 categories novice, intermediate and pro.

Nice to see we adhd is alive & well

That looks fairly clean & a grand you cant get hurt as you could part it easy for that. Pull the pipe look up it's hole, pull the mag cover feel the crank bearings for slop, as long as the motor seems solid all the other stuffs pretty easy 89-04

The technical content of all of my posts is 100% correct, and is the result of careful investigation of the subjects mentioned, not mere repetition of advertising blurb, which in many cases is far from accurate.

From posts on here its pretty clear that you are wholly correct in what you suggest about the main market for dirt bike sales in the US.

This is I guess the reason why on this forum at least there seems to be little knowledge related to machine preparation for serious competition, as most are either play bike riders, or not competing in serious higher level competition.

Nothing wrong at all with play biking or competing for fun, but proper bike preparation, carried out in the same way as serious racers would do, will help to make any bike run better and be easier to ride.

perhaps you should heed some of your own advice.

He still refuses to answer any questions of experience or substance. Nothing more than a simple troll.

Many of us have posted up our experience and accomplishments only to be ridiculed by someone who in all likelyhood is sitting in some basement in the UK. Probably a Paki immigrant with a stolen computer whose experience consists of riding in 2 stroke rickshaws during visits to his Mother in Bangalore.

So why bother?

From what I can see your "experience" seems to suggest you think its better to use very thin autolube oil in pre-mix machines, and bearing in mind this fundamental error, I cant see that you would be likely to be able to accomplish very much? As to your racist slurs, that would be enough to get you a criminal record if you were living in the UK, rather than the US where racism seems to be more accepted.

So the UK will lock you up for insults? No wonder we had to bail your sorry asses out.

You missed the 14 landspeed records,an 1/8 mile speed record in a nitro class,crew chief of a dominant (4 consecutive championships including an undefeated season) Pro Stock Harley team,40 years of MX/hare scrambles/road/drag and landspeed racing.

Any time you'd like to back up your loudmouthed bullshit I'll be here. I need an excuse to build another bike. Sometimes success breeds complacency and I'm bored.

But this is the internet and no one has come forth when challenged. Ya never know I could lose.
