WE RIDE MILLENNIUM TECHNOLOGIES’ HONDA CRF264 BIG BORE

If you have a carbureted CRF250 you are out of luck for an effective big-bore. The 2010 and 2011 CRF250s have thicker cylinder liners that offer more than enough room to go bigger.

WE RIDE HINSON CLUTCH COMPONENTS HONDA CRF450 MOTOCROSS BIKE:

When somebody mentions a spring, you probably picture a standard coil spring that looks like a steel pigtail. Most motocrossers immediately envision the shock spring on a race bike. A spring, however, is any elastic object that stores energy. A lesser known type of spring is a Belleville washer. Belleville washers are a type of disc-shaped cup with an extremely high tensile strength. Originally developed in the mid-19th century by Julian Belleville, Belleville springs are used in a variety of environmen…
