Added reply in a thread 17' Husky FX350 Map Switch Won't Shut Off 6/23/2021 6:46 AM

I borrowed a buddy's KTM350SX to do a little swap out of electronics. Ended up being a quirky voltage regulator. My regulator worked but not within the parameters it was supposed to.

Hey guys. I have a situation where my map switch will not shut off after shutdown. I went out to my shop yesterday and noticed my map switch was on and I didn't touch my bike. Fooled with it and found that my battery was almost drained. I have read what ... more »

My riding buddy broke his 4.2 shock spring on his TX300 the exact same way. He goes 165#. Vet A off road. The spring dropped down into his linkage and locked the assembly. I had to use my cutoff wheel the cut the spring into pieces to get it off.

When you have paid moto training centers catering to C-class riders and the parents home-schooling them so they can ride 24/7, then you know the sport needs an enema. I always ask those parents what their back-up plan is. They look at me like I am an ... more »

Had a same but different issue. My top cap cracked along the top ridge. It was so clean that it looked like it was glued together and just came apart. Don't use it anymore. They want you to buy the billet aluminum cap and spout. At $120. Ahhh, No.

Reznor is garbage? That's interesting since I have facilities that have 40+ year old units that are still working fine. I want to see the Lowe's Mr. Heaters in 40 years. And I pray for anyone who does a DIY gas furnace and has a problem with it where ... more »

That might be a little high but not out of the ballpark. A unit for 1120 sq.ft. will run the contractor about $1K. Then you have to account for the propane line. Gastite isn't cheap. And the exhaust pipe may run you $$$ depending on how far you need ... more »

I would agree with the mini-split idea also. Sorry, I had my mind on heating only. I have a Mitsubishi in my barn/shop and it works very well. Heat and AC. Now there is a caveat though. Mini-splits are NOT made to change large temperature differentials. ... more »

HVAC engineer here. If you have natural gas or propane access, go with a Reznor or Modine hanging space heater. Super efficient and work fantastic. If you have oil or waste oil, check those heaters out. Electric heaters from Qmark are cheap and work ... more »

80's to early 90's was my favorite. Huge Barnett fan. He was the next great 125 rider after the late great Marty Smith. In that era, anybody could win on any given day. You had Ward, Bailey, Johnson, Hannah, Glover, Barnett, Schultz, Stanton, Bayle, ... more »

I lost my Buster in 2016. 16.5 year old Border Collie. Want to see a guy cry his eyes out. Putting him down was one of the hardest things I have ever done. He was my best friend and will never forget him. Now I have a new best friend named Mandy.

I took a chance and tried the 53 coming off the AT81. Terrible off road tire. I ride/race eastern PA single track with roots and rocks. Does not work, period. No grip at all. Went back to the AT81 and all is well again.

It is good to hear that a few more riders/racers are good parents. I have 2 boys and I went the same direction. My wife and I don't shelter them but made sure that they know what right and wrong is and to keep out of certain situations. I still get irritated at guys that think my 13 year old needs to hear the F-bomb every other word. Oh, but he is a teenager they say. He should be numb to that by now. Not in my house, sorry. I was brought up old-school and are trying to keep that moral in my family's next generation. My father would still belt me in the mouth if I would curse in front of him. And he is 78. And don't get me started on our racers that think they are Christians and thank the "Good Lord Jesus Christ for keeping them safe" and then drop the F-bomb 2 seconds later to their buddy. You either walk the walk the walk or you don't. Enough of that. Bring on Supercross!
