Re: Brooks H/S '17

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

OHV safety helmets must comply with the same standards that exist for motorcycle helmets in Alberta’s Vehicle Equipment Regulation, which indicates the standards are: • CSA Standard CAN3-D230-M85, Protective Headgear in Motor Vehicle Applications; • Standard No. 218; Motorcycle helmets under Part 5...

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

New Helmet Law

https://www.transportation.alberta.ca/ohv_helmets.htm I assume we all wear helmets anyway. i did wonder about the comment "Alberta will abide by CSA helmet motorized vehicle standards"... I'm not sure if my lid bears any CSA marks. I'll be annoyed if I must purchase another just to have a ...

Re: 2016 KTM 350 XCF setup

My recollection is that I used 100mm of air gap, based on what I found on KTM talk and the race tech website. It's not listed in the owner's manual. Then, recalling that it was easier to add oil than remove a precise amount once the forks are mounted, I removed 10ml with a syringe while the cap was ...

Re: 2016 KTM 350 XCF setup

Resurrecting my old thread to post some updates. I tried Alex's recommend 2.5wt oil when I changed my fork seals the other day. Works good! :thumbsup: I'm able to run a little higher oil height (though still 10ml less than stock) without the compression spike in the midstroke. I have a ~40ft jump th...

Re: Dirtshark Winters

I've ridden with ice screws before with tires I found dirt cheap on Kijiji. It's not as good as studs on the trails. I would also lose a few screws every now and then. I had fun, but you're not likely to keep up with someone running studs. You may, for example, find hills your buddy with studs can a...

Re: Rubber Particles Inside Inner Tube

Yeah, like dirtyboy said. It's the tube and tire wearing against one another. More noticeable the longer your tube has been in the tire.

I use a generous amount of silicone lube. Still notice wear on the sides of the tube if I've had the tire for awhile.

Re: 2016 KTM 350 XCF setup

I'm running a 12 tooth front sprocket for off-road with the stock chain and 50 tooth rear sprocket. Not ideal for chain or slider wear, but at least I can get some use out of the stock stuff. I'm pretty happy with Dobi's recommended 103mm of sag, the 15ml less oil, and no spacers in the forks. I'll ...

Re: That tire thing again ...

I'll throw in my 2 cents. For front tires, the M12 you mentioned is predictable and precise. I also like the MX3S - I think it provides even better traction than the M12, but I can easily use 4-5 per season because of side knob tearing vs. two M12s. The M3S just does not like to be run long on any h...
