Re: Lights for 2 stroke

Ha, don't thank me too much. I didn't actually try any of my "great" suggestions. For curiosity's sake, I checked to see what Bosch has too (I have both Dewalt and Bosch power tools). The design looks easier to strap to your forks with those movable arms, its smaller and has a little highe...

Re: Lights for 2 stroke

Just spit-balling a few ideas: 1. I wonder if there's any power tool LED lights that could work. E.g. the DEWALT DCL060 LED worklight produces 1500 lumens and costs ~$100 (cheapest I found online was at IHL for $84). That polisport setup is great and all, but costs $477 from gnarlyparts :crazy: and ...

Re: 2018 Supercross

I'm thinking of trying the PulpMX version. I'll probably do RM too since the price is right.

Re: Women’s Bike Suggestions

I'd go for a TTR or CRF 230. TTRs seem to be a little cheaper and more plentiful - around $2000 for a 2007-2012. They have more power than the 140 - which your friend may or may not want - but the delivery is very smooth and friendly. My very first bike (when I was 13) was a 1995 Honda XR200. I rare...

Looks good! What kind of material is it made from?

Re: Areas to ride outside of OHV Ban?

I'm confused by the map on their website. It doesn't look far enough down hwy 752 to be on crown land - there's farms all along that road. Generally speaking, it's the same general area as "Gloomy Creek" - but Gloomy creek is another 20-25 mins down the road. Presuming it is the beginning ...

Re: 4CS fork revalve question

Because my 2012 350xcf CC forks were so good, I was considering it long and hard but I also did not re-valve my forks on my '16 350xcf. Like Dirtyboy I swapped the springs (though in my case to much stiffer ones), removed the spacers (maybe a little overboard on my springs), removed 15mm of oil, run...

Re: 4CS fork revalve question

I will dig up some details tomorrow. Still waiting Alex. :D I'm guessing this is the "Terry Hay" mod I read about on KTM talk? Did you do it to your forks? I found it difficult to follow given that information on it is spread out on 50+ page thread and I have only a seal-and-bushing-swap ...

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?
