    New Bike for the Newbie!

    by zooomer » Mon Dec 24, 2007 5:30 am

    Hey guys, I'm new here. actually I'm pretty new to dirtbiking. I've spent the last 20 years riding quads.
    Don't get me wrong, I still love my quad, but I also like branching out and riding bikes too.

    Welcome to the site Zooooomer!!!

    I would like to apologize in advance for all the nasty comments I will make about quads in the future...

    Welcome zoomer. Don't believe Agent Smiths apology. He gets off on bagging on quads! :) Welcome from the dark side. Read the forums and mod that 250X! Don't be afraid to alter a new machine. It will be so much better and you will love it even more.

    yea dont leave it stock, rejet, do sum small mods like the pink wire mod, maybe even get a new exhaust, if not do what most people with x's do remove the baffle, get a new air filter, set the suspension, get a better chain, get sum grips, i know that all sounds pricey but its not, do em in slow steps and sooner or later youll have your very own race machine.
    the first thing you gotta do is get sum #'s.

    I've been riding and racing quads long enough that I can over look comments about quads. LOL
    I've gotta learn how to ride this thing before I do many mods to it. 8)

    Here is my sons bike and mine.

    sweet, what kinda riding are u gunna be doing, i still think you should do stuff like set up your suspension and rejet it will be so easier on your self and the bike.
    you should look in to getting your son a new bike that 70s pretty cool but he looks as if he could use a 65 or sumthing. just my opinion.

    The mods will make it better, but the minimal you should do is set your race sag! You look pretty trim. What is your weight? The bikes are sprung for about 170 or so. If you are there then set that race sage and don't look back. If you are like most of us and are 200 plus, then seriously begin thinking about getting your suspension re-sprung or re-spring and re-valved.
    Nice looking boy, and 70! I have a 450X and my Grandson rides the 70.
