Default Gas Gas In Latest Dirt Rider Magazine

Just to let everyone know: Gas Gas 125 has a small/medium test in the July issue of Dirt Rider Magazine. This issue has their 2011 "Bike of the Year" pick and, just as a little tease, the Gas Gas 250 is mentioned in that article. Please forgive me for not telling all but GG lovers should buy the magazine to help support the industry.

Eric

Thumbs up

I just got thru reading it fifteen minutes ago! Good things have started to happen since Clay and his brother took over the reigns!

As a GG 125 rider I need to find out exactly what they did to the powervalve "limiter". I wonder if it is as easy as flipping the front cover 180*...

If you havn't done that already you must do it now. The powervalve will NOT operate in the stock (factory position). I found out the hard way. I had ridden alot of slow bikes but none that slow. That changed everything...

So, I've been riding this bike without an operating powervalve??? Do I just turn the powervalve cover on the top front of the cylinder 180*???

It looks like the cylinder has to come off the bike to turn the front cover over...damned allen head bolts...

no it does not, all you need is an allen w/ the ball on the end and it comes off.
