For those of you that know a dirtbiker and never know what the heck he or she is saying here's a run down on some popular dirtbike words.

Brraaaapppp: The most commonly used word in the dirtbike world. Usually we do this when we're bored and just want to express ourselves.

Endo: Front of the bike diving down in a crash usually causing rider to go over the bars. Usually used in conjunction with "wad" or "ate crap."

Loop Out: Opposite of Endo. Front end goes high and rider jumps off back. Usually occures with entry level riders off jump. Most commonly followed by laughter.

Wad: To crash or screw something up in a big way. Usually used as a warning. Example "don't do that jump or you'll wad it up."

Arm Pump: Occurs when a rider is out of shape or uncomfortable on the bike and his forearms get all stiff and feel like they're going to blow up. Hard to explain unless you've experienced it.

Wiskey Throttle: Usually occurs shortly after arm pump when rider accidently grabs a handfull of throttle when he shouldn't have. Usually occurs in corners and is followed by an Endo.

Yard Sale: A hard crash resulting in the bike cartwheeling and leaving parts across the track. Usually occurs in the first turn or on straight aways.

Seat Bounce: The art of sitting off the face of a jump and using the suspension as a pogo stick to clear jumps right out of a corner. When entry level racers do this it is usually followed by an panic rev and an endo.

Panic Rev: Usually done while endoing off a jump. A rider gives the bike full throttle and hits the rev limiter in a pathetic effort to save their butt. It usually does nothing for the rider but fans are able to follow the sound and watch the crash unfold.

Rev Limiter: As far as the bike will go in the rpm's before it blows up. Fast riders bounce off the rev limiter all the time to keep rpms up while in the air. Most people just bounce the bike off the rev limiter (especially 4 strokes) because it sounds good.

Whip: Leaning off the side of the bike on a jump and laying the bike over in the air. Not to be confused with just sticking your butt off the side of the bike.

Swap: Occurs when back end kicks violently from left to right. Usually occurs in whoops sections or long rough straight aways.

Whoops: Section of track with large bumps the a rider has to skim over as fast as possible. Endos, panic revs, rev limiters, and swaps are usually found here.

Case: Coming up too short on a jump. Usually occurs with a panic rev.

Over Jump: To jump passed the landing of a jump and landing on the flat ground.

Triple: A jump that has a take off and two landings. You can double it and land on the first landing or jump the whole thing at once. Usually found on arenacross and supercross tracks.

Motocross: Outdoor races that usually have longer lap times and last longer.

Arenacross: Indoor racing that has very short lap times and is held in arena's and at fairs.

Supercross: Indoor racing that is held in football and baseball field size stadiums.

Cross Country: Outdoor races that are really long and last about 2 to 3 hours held out on peoples land that people have just made trails on and became race tracks.

So now when someone says "This guy was racing arenacross and seatbounced a triple but cased it and wadded it up" you'll know exactly what they're talking about. Brraaaappp!!

      Has anyone been here? I have been there a few times this year and I love it! It is quite muddy in parts of it, but there is something for EVERYONE there! They just hosted the season opener for Championship Mud Racing there and it was awesome! Its one of my favorite privately owned parks in this whole region!

      On a 93 Kodiak, and I am sure BigBear behind and below the clutch pack sits a claw of a piece. It has a stack of washer bearing washer, claw, 3 bearing plate, then stabilizer fork that sits on a shaft. What does that bad boy do?

      I have just acquired an old (1995) Kawasaki Bayou 220. It is in relatively good condition but I would really like to overhaul it.
      Do you know how I can find the service manual?

      Im rick, and im new here. I just got a Bayou 220 for $125. It locks up after a few rounds, Im pulling the motor now to see wtf. It didnt rattle or knock when it fires a few short times and it cranks and cranks with the starter before it locked up again. Ill know more tonight, but I actually bought it for the wheels to upgrade a G1 golf cart but if I can fix it, Ill keep it a bike, otherwise it gets cut up and merged with a golf cart. I have a larger bayou rear axle merging with a honda shadow vtwin 1100cc shaft drive bike and and yamaha golf cart. I am building "Frank" or "Frankie" the monster cart with around 10 to 12 inch and 26's. I like building modified toys especially when its done and it works, and doesnt cost me a fortune! lol I can weld and all that crap, been a mechanic all my life, I fix shit!! Im just disabled now and not as pliable as I was 20 years ago. I still fix shit, just takes me longer now with health and age, and Im on a low budget now. Good thing I have tools to do things myself or I'd be forced to be a couch potato. Anyway, thanks for letting me join. I have already read lots of cool threads and cant wait to show more pics of my progress
