Aboutthe 2009 Ama Nationals

Although on paper the people running the 2009 AMA 250 450 Nationals are new and different than last year, in truth, they are the same old people (they are just wearing different-colored shirts). Change isn't easy, but it is inevitable. Here is a list of things the MXA wrecking crew wants changed about the AMA Nationals (and yes, we shared these thoughts with them many months ago). (1) SHORTEN THE PROGRAM The program is too long People have a time limit for entertainment and recreation. Once you...

Ama Grand National Champion

Ryan 6. Davi Millsaps 7. Josh 8. Nick Wey 9. Brett 10. Michael The MXA wrecking crew will be totaling the points from the 2009 AMA 450 Supercross series, Lucas Oil 450 Nationals and Lucas Oil 250 Nationals to find out which rider earned the most points in American motocross competition. These would be the actual National numbers of every rider who competed in 2009 if anyone compiled points in the order in which they were scored.

Championship

In most cases, the 250 class has been more exciting to watch than its big brother. Christophe Pourcel is quickly making his American presence known by being Ryan Dungey's main adversary for the 250 title. Tommy Searle (123) is one of three European transplants on the 250 circuit. He has the speed to finish on the podium, but has yet to take the top spot. Christophe Pourcel is quickly making his American presence known by being Ryan Dungey's main adversary for the 250 title.

Boots come in all shapes, sizes and prices. This month the MXA test crew gathered up a bounty of boots in an effort to give you the lowdown on what's new in shoeland. This year's Lucas Oil 250 450 Nationals have been intriguing. No one knows who will win because no one knows who will be around at the finish. Reed and Pourcel won High Point.

Judys

Ilook at motocross a lot differently than most people. Years ago, it stopped being the adolescent, macho, testosterone-strutting thing that it was when I was 18. You know what was so good about when I was an 18-year-old motocross racer I lived through it. I managed, by luck of the draw, to jump stuff just because it was there, let my friends cajole me into riding pieces of junk faster than they should have been pushed, and believed that somehow my worth as a human being came from the ability to...

Lucas Oil National Motocross Series

This year's 250 450 National Championships, sponsored by Lucas Oil, have lived up to their potential. There has been drama, intrigue, bravado, stupidity, heartbreak and glorious achievements. It's not over yet The close racing in both classes means that the final winners will probably not be determined until the last few weeks of the season (which ends on September 5). The final four races could be the most exciting. Be there. Budds Creek, MD Southwick, MA Steel City, PA There have been many...

Mm DC s bduffs Ifflg

There are many parallels between motocross and life. Without getting too philosophical, life is a race that everyone wants to win. The thought of losing is unbearable, while the idea of winning keeps people motivated to do their best. Motocross racers exemplify the race for success. We will jump at the chance to win, sometimes at any cost. And just like every human being, motocross racers are created equal until the gate drops. Roger DeCoster, Torsten Hallman, Jeremy McGrath and Ricky...

While the 2008 National series was finishing up in August, Chad Reed was searching for a ride. He didn't think it would be a problem since he was the reigning Supercross champion. He was wrong It wasn't until rather late in the game that Makita Suzuki, with the help of Rockstar Energy drink, signed Reed to a one-year deal. Chad became the biggest high-profile name since Ricky Carmichael to ride under the Suzuki banner, and he also became the points leader in the young Supercross series after a...

The choice is yours If money is an issue don't be afraid to buy a 2007 or newer Yamaha YZ250. The differences over the last three years are nil. I have a choice between a 2009 and a leftover 2007 YZ250 two-stroke. The price difference will be 1500. Any other considerations The price difference between a 2007 and a 2009 should be greater than 1500 (in light of the fact that 2010 models have already been announced). There are no significant differences between a 2007 and a 2009 YZ250.

Safety Most neck braces rest on your shoulders which means that upon impact, the pressure is directed to a small area. Often your collarbone and sternum suffer the brunt during impact.

Yz250 Settings For Slower Rider

Nirvana Spin the dials to your hearts content. SETUP THE BEST SUSPENSION SETTINGS FOR A 2001 YZ250 I recently picked up a 2001 YZ250 two-banger and love it, but the suspension leaves much to be desired. What were your settings for the 2001 YZ250 For most tracks, we set the stanchion tubes flush with crown, dial the compression adjusters at 14 out and rebound at 12 out. The standard 0.43 kg mm spring will work for riders weighing up to 170 pounds. If you need more compression, try a 0.44 kg mm...

Christophe Pourcel 2012

Over-achiever Trey Canard a mere two laps from winnin his first National, but a crash and subsequent broken wrist ended his chance of winning Justin Barcia 151 took the inside line, while Trey Canard 39 and Christophe Pourcel 377 fanned out. Despite Barcia's inside approach, Canard emerged with the second moto holeshot. The women's pro class has been a big hit among spectators, although the schedule should be changed so that the women race before the men. Dariyn Durham is on a long list of...

Kawasaki Kx450f Jetting From 2006 To 2009

Fcr Carb Choke

Big green only had brass jets for three years The MXA wrecking crew only had three years of experience with Kawasaki KX450F jetting 2006 to 2008 before the Kawasaki engineers opted to switch from the Keihin FCR carb to a Keihin fuel-injection system. The all-new fuel injection system only has one external control for the owner operator to fiddle with. Too bad, because half the fun of owning a motorcycle is fine tuning every aspect of it with a screwdriver, nutcracker and hammer. On the...

Ktm 250sxf Jetting From 2005 To 2009

Sx250f 2008

Nothing required short of some fiddling Most of the MXA wrecking crew's jetting experience on the KTM 250SXF has involved making small fine-tun-ing adjustments. To make the most of the KTM 250SXF, you have to learn to feel where the problem is before you can iron it out. We have fiddled with the fuel screw, adjusted the accelerator pump both the rod length and the cam setting and added after-market float bowls with leak jets. As far as the actual hard parts in the carb go, we have rarely had to...
