    Wrench Tip Wednesday: Seizing Up
    Lets talk anti-seize…. What the heck? Anti-seize is a grease like paste containing high concentrations of copper, nickel, aluminum, graphite, and molybdenum and helps prevent galvanic corrosion when unlike metals are joined together. It helps resist heat and moisture and will definitely help ease removal. This product is perfect to use on chain adjusters and all plastic bolts, especially ones in the tank area. Think about all the places on a dirt bike galvanic corrosion can take place.. what

    Wrench Tip Wednesday: Footpegs
    A common upgrade on a dirt bike is replacing the OEM pegs with beefier, wider, colorful, or vibration absorbing footpegs. Keeping your feet stable on the pegs is so important, you ride a dirt bike with your lower body not so much on the upper body!  So many good brands out there varying in prices. My peg of choice is Fasst Company's Impact Moto Peg. Since I have started using them, I feel more stable on my toes in sketchy situations. They are wider than OEM pegs and isolate the cleat from

    Okie Sprint Enduro - Discover Your Speed
    Round 1 and 2 of Okie Sprint took place this past weekend in Sand Springs, OK just outside of Tulsa. I have never raced a sprint enduro and the format is different. In Sprint enduro’s riders are given two separate tests that must be navigated three times each. Each test is roughly three miles long and should take 10-15 minutes. Riders are staged by class at the start of test one and will be released one at a time in numerical order, every 15 seconds. Once a rider has cleared Test 1, they will

    Is Sherco just a fad?
    The name Sherco derives from combing two words, Bultaco & Sherpa...SHER-CO. Sherco was born in 1998 due to Marc Teissier’s passion for trials. The Spanish factory was first opened and only produced trials bikes. In 2003, the French factory opened their doors welcoming the enduro dirt bike range. Sherco motorcycles is the only active French brand. An independent company making their presence known by fifty countries selling their brand across the world. Fun fact probably only known by the

    Wrench Tip Wednesday: Dirt Bike goes for a Swim
    This time of year, Missouri tends to be very wet. Really no way to avoid it, if you want to ride. Creeks can be misleading! Or the random holes filled with water. Not sure what is worse the shock to your body of the cold weather or letting the bike swim. If it is a quick submerge there is a chance the bike might still start. But a hot engine and cool water never mix. First, I would try to start it. If it does not start, pull the spark plug and flip the bike upside down. Kick the engine over.

    Wrench Tip Wednesday: Power or Torque it?
    Although, stopping to look up torque specs and grab a torque wrench can be a pain in the rear, it can save you money in the long run. Think about all the nuts and bolts you’ve stripped by over tightening. Or what about the sketchiness of under tightening sprocket bolts or axle nuts. A good rule of thumb, always use a torque wrench on all engine related matters or mechanically functioning bolts. Manufactures finely tune their bikes to specific torque values. With that being said, a Beta might

    Wrench Tip Wednesday: Flushing the Cooling System
    Flushing the coolant out of your dirt bike should be a yearly maintenance deal or if you are changing brands. Different coolant brands should never be mixed. Chemical reactions can happen with lots of possibilities of damaging the bike. Automotive coolant can be used but may require more maintenance verse specific motorcycle/powersport coolant.   Things to look for when looking at different brands; Propylene Glycol (biodegradable and non-toxic) and should not contain any silicate or

    Support the Little Guys & Shop Local
    Not going to mention any retail names but the shopping online seems to be almost everyone’s go to. Shopping local has so many benefits and not just for the business owner. Lots of people have complained about shops not stocking chain lube or 2t oil. The reason might be because no one buys it from them, so why keep it on the shelf? Hard to stock the shelves full with no one buying. Did you know if a dealership has to order something, they can typically have it in just two days. If it wasn't for

    Wyatt's Year End Transition to New Race Season
    Wyatt’s bike of choice is a 2018 Sherco 300 SEF Six Days. The Sherco 300 4T is a very sought-after dirt bike. As the year ends and race season right around the corner, the prep work for 2019 begins! The bike is fifthly. Strip it completely down. Clean each and every single part as it is removed. Inspect the bearings. All good, grease them up! Torque all suspension bolts. Apply Loctite and antiseize where needed. Wyatt has a hobby that allows him to do extra customizing to the metal parts of
