YAMAHA - BLUCRUOFFICIAL - OH HECK YEAH!

 





BREAK-IN IS OVER - IT'S TIME TO RIDE
My grandpa and I are headed to the Mesquite MX track this morning and it's finally time to open up my brand spankin' new 2021 Yamaha YZ250F Monster Edition purchased from Mike Basso of St. George, Utah Factory Powersports.  Okay-brrr, 32 ° F this morning in Mesquite.  That's a cold morning here in the desert but it's 22° F this morning in Utah County so I'll take it. 
"LET'S DO IT!"

I'm looking for a few good financial backers and sponsors to help me and my grandpa out.  He's retired and helping all he can but sure could use some help.  If you know of anybody out there that would like to back me, no matter the amount I can really use the help.  Don't let the new bike fool you.  We sat down and put it on paper.  It's cheaper to buy new than to keep sinking in money to repair an older bike.  Anyway, I would really appreciate any help you can offer.  Click here to help GOFUNDME.

TRUST? WHEN BUYING A USED BIKE AT THE TRACK?

 I've posted several items about buying my 2017 Honda CRF450R from Horner at the Mesquite MX track when my grandpa and I couldn't get the 2005 Honda CRF450R started.  The '05 was a great bike.  Justin Batty found that the only problem with the bike was a loose wire on the kill switch.  Valves were good and adjusted; everything was great in the engine but the stupid kill switch let me down.  ...lesson learned 😫

So, with that being said Horner was selling his 2017 Honda CRF450R.  We were parked right next to him when he told us about the bike.  Everybody seemed to know him at the track.  We shouldn't have trusted him at his word.  He rode the bike into the ground.  He said that his mechanic did this and did that.  Yeah, right!  Basically the guts of the bike wasn't even really a Honda.  We have put in over four-thousand dollars back into the bike.  The following is the latest fiasco that costs us a ton of money.  

At my last race in Mona at Mountain West I had problems with the clutch.  After starting at the gate I couldn't get it to do anything; the clutch was gone.

We took the bike into @RS Power Sports in Las Vegas where we met Ronen and his partner Johnny. Here is their information 4450 W. Donovan Way Suite 126, North Las Vegas, NV 89081 (702) 781-4433.

Ronen is originally from Israel where he served in the equivalent of the Marines.  He also raced motocross as well as a professional horse racing jockey.  Ronen knows more about off road vehicles than anybody I've ever met; amazing.  He took the clutch apart and showed me where the problem(s) were and are. Wrong clutch parts for this Rekluse clutch.  He showed me where something was scratching the clutch cover.  You can see the scraping in the following photos of the clutch.


He had to order replacement parts which were going to take a while to get in.  I had a race in Mesquite that I had planned on.  Ronen said that he could grind down and machine the clutch parts to get it running for me but couldn't guarantee that it would hold up in the race.  It was really nice of him to try just for me; that's the kind of guy he and his shop is.  It started out great.  With my new Pivotrax MX tires I won the holeshot and I thought it was going to be a great race but the band aid, duct tape fix just couldn't withstand the race.  The repair job only lasted for the holeshot and a couple of turns. Ronen tried but the Rekluse clutch was beyond repair. 
I'm in the middle, white Bell Helmet, Black and Red O'Neal Riding Gear on the 2017 Honda CRF450R.


So back to RS Power Sport for repair.  This time Ronen was going back to basics and ordered Honda OEM parts (Original Equipment Manufacturer).  Yeah, more money but Ronen was taking care of me and promised I would like the clutch.
The bike is back!  Ronen, his crew and RS Power Sport did it!  It runs like it is brand new; I guess it is.  Everything has been rebuilt including tires wheels, grips, plastics; it is brand new. So I think that it is time to put it up for sale.  My grandpa and I are thinking that it is worth around $7,500.  I'll be posting it for sale with everything that has been put on the bike and the repairs made so you can see it will be a great deal.  I'm looking at dropping down to the 250cc class.  As a beginner that gives me a chance to race in a few different motos instead of just the 450 Beginner Class.

As far as Ronen and RS Power Sport; he's our go to "Mechanic" from now on.  His shop looks like a small bike shop but don't let that fool you.  This shop is Amazing!  Take your bike, your ATV, whatever to him.  You'll be amazed at what he can do.
