    Re: Runaway stunt bike

    do kill switches get removed from stunt bikes?

    hard to imagine why one would try to kick a moving bike down?

    GEAR - some people ride with it, some people don't. It's time to accept this fact and move onto more pressing preaching.

    HID's - your crappy install is blinding and annoying everyone else - not to mention putting yourself in some degree of danger.

    Can we make a category called, "My skills suck, lemme tell you why.." forum?

    People rarely remove them completely, but for tricks like high chairs etc where there is a high likelyhood of hitting it with your legs shutting the engine off in a wheelie while sitting on the tank. People either move them to a harder to reach location or simply rotate them so they are on the bottom of the bar not the top. That makes them harder to find and reach, especially when its not your bike and your in a panic....

    I always wonder what would happen if you got tangled up with the bike and your hand or foot or hand and foot got into the chain drive? A lot, like 24/7. It's kind of distracting to think about one thing so much.

    Many people add what is advertised as a finger/foot saver to try and prevent getting caught in the chain/sprocket

    One of these would seem wise for stunters while they're still learning/experimenting.

    I wonder why street bikes don't have a chain quide like motox, it's a little unsprung weight, however the chain should not come off and pretty hard to get body parts chewed up in the sprocket.

    A female that races 125s had this happen to her. Don't know if she wants it known. I didn't ask her details but it broke stuff =P

    A sport bike should never have its chain adjusted with as much slack in it as a MX bike, because they don't have nearly as much rear suspension travel. So under normal circumstances its not required, a guard can be added but a guide is not necessary, and would cause some drag and excessive noise

    Adding a sprocket/chain guard to the bottom of the swing arm is about all you should need if your worried about getting caught up in the sprocket/chain



    The only person I know that has ever had this happen to them, did so while cleaning their chain with the bike running in first gear on a stand....Almost lost 2 fingers

    It's already got one guy on foot chasing after it and another on a bike. Don't see how a third would help?
