Re: Valve Cover Bolts

I have stripped out swing rear axle adjuster bolts from a swing arm before. Took it to a shop in town and they used these keen-serts. Not sure why they preferred them over anything else. They worked great though, no issues. I had it done by a shop so that the drill out and placement was spot on. htt...

Re: Kooc closures

Cameron Westhead. Apparently had a meeting with ranchers of big horn MD looking to close the entire west side of the riding area. I guess that would mean the entire transalta road would be closed.

Re: Do you Rekluse?

I don't really see the point of rekluses, now that e-starts are a big thing and modern 2T's are so good. The 300's keep running so low it almost feels like double digit RPM. And so much power that second gear is just a jack of all trades. I guess if you are really in love with your 250 4T then maybe...

Re: Looking for 2017 300 Jetting Advice

This won't be much of a help, but I slapped a Lectron on from day 1 with the bike. It needed some sorting out and wasnt perfect, but the bike pulls super hard now. Good off idle response, but I still have it a touch rich so itll load up if it idles for a long time. Going to be swapping to a gnarly p...

Re: Best Woods Bike for Shorter Women

Where is there an OSSA dealer in Calgary? That is an interesting idea. With lights and an e-start that would be a great solution! I think we may have settled on a lowered 150XCW. Don at pro action says he can take 2-2.5" out of it which should get us close to her Honda 150R in terms of seat hei...

Re: Kooc closures

What a disappointment. With these closures, the castle closures, and now word of an MLA wanting to shut down a bunch of riding in the Ghost/Waiparous area, it seems like one can almost see the end of the great trail riding we have at our fingertips here in Calgary.

Re: Best Woods Bike for Shorter Women

I never thought of the freeride! Looks like I could get it in that 34.5" seat height range with a lowering kit. Anyone have feedback on how bad vibrations are? Doesn't look like it has the same updated motor with counter balance shaft as the '17's. Also is the carb fairly forgiving with elevati...

Best Woods Bike for Shorter Women

Hello, Been going through a couple of iterations with the girlfriend of the proper bike for her, and just can't seem to find the right package. Started on a '08 KTM 250SXF, and it was just way too big. We do mostly tighter single track with some wider quad trails mixed in for cruising. We now have a...
