Re: Lights for 2 stroke

If you wanted to hard wire something up, you could mount LEDs on the front and back and wire them up to a R/C car battery stashed behind your number plate. Relatively easy to do...

2017 TE300 Forks?

Were the forks any good on this bike? I remember hearing a lot of complaints about the 4cs, and the air forks as well, but I'm not sure which ones this bike has. Any input?

Chain Saw recommendations?

As you all know, I'm incredibly cheap/poor and since I'm building an EX track I need a saw. Are electric ones any good? Should I just buy a cheap Poulin? Should I pony up and buy a Stihl/Husky? I am here for your input.

Re: Hiya!

Unfortunately yes Dylan. I forgot to say thanks to all three of you. It was a pleasure working with you guys. I'm heading to Magrath (15 min south of Lethbridge) because my wife wants to be closer to her family.

Castle and Porkies are about the same distance away. Too far...

Re: Battery Life/Maintenance

It should hold a charge indefinitely just like a car. Obviously if you aren't riding it will dwindle over time. I'd take it out over the winter, put it in the basement on a trickle charger and install it for next season.
