2007 Kawasaki KLX250 – Traded

The latest addition. I finally decided to put aside my bitterness about having to go back to basics and take another bike test and picked this up to get me to my M2 license. I put the more street appropriate tires on that came with it but other than that it was alright apart from […]

2012 Suzuki RM-Z 250

Was going to get new springs for the 2010 but saw this in great shape and a reasonable price so decided to jump on this and then look at selling the older one. After setting all the suspension to stock I took this out and it is effing awesome!! The handling is fantastic and it […]

2003 Suzuki RM65 – Sold

I picked this up for the little guy, looks to be in good shape. The clutch bites late so it might need new plates and it has a DEP exhaust that makes the power band a bit too vicious for him to learn clutch and gears with so I’ll try to pick up a stock […]

2013 Oset 20.0 Electric Trials Bike

Saw this on Kijiji and thought it would be good for us all to play with and even for the wife to use as a pit bike at the MX track.  Sadly when I got it home I found that most of the stuff I was told about it was not accurate … “Brand new […]

KYB Fork Protector

One of the fork protectors was missing off the 2007 YZ250F and they are about $25 for a new one.  I figured I’d design and print one and see if it would stay in place on the track. Quick model drawn up in Onshape. Printed in PLA for now simply because it was already in […]

48mm Fork Seal Sliders

Coincidentally, both sets of forks on my dirt bikes were 48mm and both needed new seals.  I drew up these seal sliders incorporating a groove in the OD that was intended for a tie wrap to hold the two halves together.  Most often these are made from metal that has more mass and thus more […]

KTM Shock Spring Adjust Tool

After the success with the fork cap wrench I figured that I might be able to make a strong enough tool to adjust the rear shock spring, when setting the sag for example. The first tool was a little bit long so the end would foul the airbox and the hook at the end was […]

Yamaha KYB Fork Cap Tools

I needed to replace the fork seals on my 07 YZ250F and didn’t have the special wrench for undoing the fork caps so I designed this tool to be 3D printed.  It took a few iterations to get the design strong enough but I was successfully able to loosen both fork caps with the final […]
