Re: Helmet design - fyi

I've been Very happy with my Klim F4 Helmet, the ECE version. No MIPs, but a well though out helmet with easy liner removal and an indestructible visor. I forget the exact weight, but the ECE version is quite a bit lighter than the DOT. From what I understand the tests are similar, but DOT requires ...

I've never been a 350 guy, but I second Dbs' opinion, I'd search for a 13+.

I tried 2 registries that denied it. Then Went to AMA with the wife and they put it through. Once we made it very clear to them it was OHV only it was no issue at all putting it through.

This. Just try a different registry.

Re: Sound Testing

The FIM recommends the "2 metre Max" method.

The mic is 2m away from the exhaust outlet at 45 degrees, and the motorcycle is help at max RPM for 1 second.

Re: Sound Testing

Well, it depends :D Some 450s are quieter (Honda) or louder (Kawasaki) with KTMs somewhere in the middle? Most bikes should pass the FIM test that's randomly employed now. For the spark arrestor it is not required to deviate from stock, but encouraged. We all want to be responsible in our new enviro...

Re: Forking Seals!

Also check and reset fork alignment, especially after the rider, err bike, takes a trail nap - lots of YouTube vids on that. X2 While I don't check the alignment that often (only when the wheel comes off), IMHO the axle alignment is one of the biggest reasons seals go bad. I'm good for well over 20...

Seriously, a recluse helps in certain situations, hinders in others. Each riders choice based on weaknesses and strength s of the bike/rider combo.

Re: KTM EFI 2 strokes

This is without a doubt the biggest thing to happen to off road motorcycles since the 1998 YZ400F.

Re: OHV equipment act / What does my bike need ??

I appreciate folks trying to get by with bicycle lights and such, however this might be an area to spend the $ on good gear that serves more purpose, and avoids a fine /arguments with CO's. I agree with the sentiment 100%, although I do use battery powered lights. The bikes I choose seem to struggl...
