    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

    Wrench Tip Wednesday: Mixin' Gas & Haulin' A..
    Chances are if you own a two stroke dirt bike, you have to mix gas. There are a few modern age bikes that come with oil injection such as 2015+ Beta Xtrainer 300 and 2017+ Beta 250/300 RR. The oil in the gas acts as a lubricant and burns off with fuel as you ride. This seals the piston and is critical. If you remove the lubricants from the gas, the viscosity of the mixture becomes lighter and more prone to vaporization. With a lean mixture there is less oil to seal the rings. The sealing of the

    Sumter National Enduro 2019
    Stoked for race season to finally be upon us! The last time I raced was 12 weeks ago. I spent my “off season” riding as much as I could and hitting up the gym. Believe me….I had a major itch to race. Pretty much the entire month of January was crap weather and a major snow storm. Riding was very minimal which made me nervous for round 1 of NEPG. No complaints on the conditions in South Carolina. A pleasant temperature of 60 degrees and sunny skies left me with a sunburn and a smile on my face

    Wrench Tip Wednesday: Bike Setup - Handlebars
    Man, so many choices for handlebars! This is a personal preference item for sure but there is many things to consider. Height A handlebar's height is the measurement from the clamp area to the top of the control length or end of the handle part of the bar. The height of the handlebar can be adjusted by loosening the bar at the clamp area and adjusting forward or backward to your preference. Rise The rise measures the length from the clamp area to the handlebar's first steep bend. To lengthen

    2019 NEPG Beta Cup contender Huck Jenkins tells about how his weekend on the road and round 1 in South Carolina went.   "Well for my second NEPG ever I think this weekend was a success. The Bonecutter crew-Steve, Tayler and I, left the end of my driveway at 6:30am. That’s early for me, but nothing like when Tayler and Steve left their place. They left at 4am. Yuck! We then headed down south, long drive. Traveling with the Bonecutter's is not at all like traveling with the Jenkins family.

    Back On The Road!!
    I have been off the radar since before Christmas.  Has anyone missed me? I had nothing nice to say about this Show-Me Bi-Polar weather. And you know what Momma says..... As February creeps upon us, we are back on task! Its been a super busy week around the Bonecutter homestead. 4 AM this morning we pulled outta the driveway, to begin the 2019 NEPG tour. I'm super excited, because we have another travel buddy this year. I am no longer a 3rd wheel. I wanna welcome Huck Jenkins to the Beta

    Wrench Tip Wednesday: Installing Graphics
    One of the easiest things a person can do to their bike to make it stand out from the rest is buy custom graphics. Easy & reserved or extravagant with a flare, a fresh set of decals is a fun way to show style. This is my least favorite job to do and for some reason takes hours for me to complete. When it comes to graphic time, for me choosing colors is the hardest part! Should I do red, white, and blue or neon yellow and red or maybe gray and blue. The possibilities are endless!! Once the
