Re: New Chain & Sprockets

Like dirtyboy mentioned, front sprockets wear faster than the rear or the chain itself. When I buy a new chain and sprockets, I usually buy 2 or three fronts at the same time. Replacing the fronts as soon as they show wear helps the more expensive pieces last longer. I once broke an expensive gold R...

Re: Areas to ride outside of OHV Ban?

Ha. I googled "gloomy creek". Turns out that's the name of the race in the area I was talking about (we called the area "Prairie Creek" growing up). I found this youtube video. You can see the exact spot I was talking about! CdJJfKaU1rU at 6:31, you would take a sharp right turn ...

Re: Areas to ride outside of OHV Ban?

Pretty far trek for a day trip, but growing up I used to ride in this area west and south of Rocky Mountain House: https://goo.gl/maps/HdhrSyzjeS62 Spots to random camp all along the road. CMRC used to hold a race out there too, but that hasn't happened in many years now. There's quad trails all ove...

According to the Suomy website, it's ECE 22-05 and DOT certified. I'd remove the liner and have another look.

Re: Suomy Mr Jump Killer Loop Helmet DOT?

Are you sure there's no markings? Sometimes they are covered by the helmet liner or printed on the back exterior of the shell. That would be a real downer if not.

Re: 2012 Ktm 350 XC-F

For what it's worth, I really liked my 2012 350 XCF. The 2013+ bikes had more powerful engines, but I didn't feel the 2012 was under-powered. I did have an aftermarket exhaust though, which boosted the bottom end grunt. I also quite liked the forks - they are the closed-cartridge models. The valving...

Re: Ever ride a serious bike with out a shifter

What are your plans for it? I.e. are you restoring it and keeping it stock or planning to modernize and upgrade?

Re: Ever ride a serious bike with out a shifter

Wow. Neat machine. I had to do some googling to wrap my head around how it would work. This was an interesting read: http://www.pulpmx.com/stories/look-back-old-moto-mags/gps-classic-steel/gps-classic-steel-61-1978-husqvarna-390-auto Sounds like it had some advantages... as well as some quirks!

I wouldn't shed any tears if the pit went away. Being man-made, I found it very unpredictable.

Re: Battery Life/Maintenance

Tusk replacement lead-acid batteries are ~$35. I wouldn't worry about pulling the battery or trickle charging unless it was going to sit more than a couple months.

Re: New Helmet Law

DOT is a CSA standard? I should be good to go.
