Added reply in a thread lightest trail bike with 21"/18" wheels? 8/5/2020 9:03 PM

My wife rides a TTR225, I think it is around 285lbs. She doesn't have any issues with it except deep sand. The low seat helps mask the weight, I can drag the footpegs in corners to the detriment of the shifter and brake pedal. IMO weight isn't as big ... more »

Interesting, obviously was oil, but the bearings look oil starved. Couple of questions: When you change your oil, how much do you put back in? Do you ride wheelies for extended lengths?

Just because RC was an animal doesn't mean his competition was low, everyone forgets that 2011 Reed was almost 30 points up on the Ryan's until the Chadapult. At the 07 MXDN he hadn't raced in a couple months and had full blown chronic fatigue syndrome; ... more »

Just listened to Keefer's review of the 2021 KX, he said he had an issue with the 19 and 20's clutch slipping. The 21 clutch fits, but you gotta buy everything including the clutch cover and brake lever.

Pro's wouldn't race 2 strokes anyway, at least anyone who is fast enough to win.

You're probably going to need a larger generator, I would get one that is 4500 watts running.

Added reply in a thread Moto related-ish camper/generator question 7/19/2020 3:29 PM

Does it run fine when plugged in? Put an amp meter on it set to max to see what your AC is pulling at startup. It should just be the fan first, then the compressor a minute or so later. There is a run Capacitor in the AC that assists the fan and compressor, ... more »

Buckhorn trail is that picture, it is 60 miles long all 2 track. It gets steep with quite a few rocks, but is fun. Mill Creek is fun as well, Wolfpen Gap has some good climbs with awesome scenery. Fourche Mountain Trail is also fun, but it's shorter

Is your generator 4000 watts max, or 4000 constant? They tend to name them at max output, not what they can do constantly. If you have an electric water heater make sure it's not turned on when the AC is starting.

If you have sand getting through your filter, it's not the oil's fault...

I let mine sit at least overnight before installing on the bike. I have 3 filters that I wash and oil at the same time. 2 of them go into a ziplock waiting to be used, longest I've had one sit is 3 months. Never had any issues. I like the red oil better ... more »
