  1. GNCC heads a little further West...

    One of the biggest states in the union and all they could come up with is 400 acres?? What's up with that?? Don't they do 7 mile loops or something like that?
  2. Has anyone noticed?>

    I think it's Darcy Lange in arena cross, he sounds like a monotone nascar driver. "The kawasaki, pro circut, did, fox, renthal, scotts, bell,asterix, kx 250 ran strong tonight, blah blah blah. It hurts to listen to him.
  3. World GP Joke

    It's all about money!! While i don't know the financials I bet the Mfg'ers sell the most dirtbikes in america. So they spend the most of their promotional $$$ here. It's alot cheaper to have the ama be the defacto world championship that it is than hauling the whole show all over the world. How...
  4. What do you old guys do for training?

    I watched two hours of Supercross this past Sunday!! It was exhausting!! My personal philosohy is if you live close to where you ride the dirtbike then ride it. If not get a Road bicycle or an MTB or both. During the winter i put my road bike on a wind trainer and watch the news or some tube. I...
  5. diesel Jello

    Does anyone know what temp Exxon would winter mix it's diesel down to so it won't gel?? I got a machine that we plow w/and noticed that the fuel i was putting into it wouldn't pour right. Sure enough the damn stuff had gelled. the outside temp was about +10 F which isn't that cold. I took care...
  6. 1.6 gallon toilets

    If you have to buy one of these you need to get one that has a "jet port" at the bottom. the first one i had, had one and it works pretty good. It however used 3.5 gallons. I think some of the mfg'ers cork'em up just like the mc mfg'ers do the exhaust pipes to please the feds. Take it home and...
  7. &%$# SpeedChannel

    Speedway Rocks!! Some times it can get a little "slow" but things can change fast!! Plus if you know the characters it's more interesting. I saw a race last year that has to be one of the all time great motorsport races ever. Truly insane stuff when they are all charging!!
  8. Roll Chart Holders

    make sure you get the right size. Moose makes two. I have both. the first one was the dual sport model. Hmm thats all i do, I'll get that one. Turns out it was too skinny. the roll charts i got at the ride wouldn't fit in it. I got the pro or enduro model the second time.
  9. Suggestions on building a crate to ship a bike?

    last time i was at the kaw dealer they had a stack of crates they had broken down and looked like they were getting rid of them. you might call around and see if you can get a crate from a dealer.
  10. Parts washer owners!

    I got a mini cleaner from nothern hydralics. It came w/a nonflammable degreaser. It worked really good. you might do a search and come up w/some non flammmable stuff. I went w/non flam because it's in my basement. No need to burn the house down cleaning parts!
  11. Bad Truck! Bad!

    I've had a 98, 2k, and the current 2002 silverado. I didn't like the abs on the 2k, i always thought it was kind f'ed up. Maybe it was those junk stock tires. I agee w/you on those tires, junk junk junk!!!
  12. premix and/or race gas in your truck

    Being a thumper guy i don't have to worry about left over bike fuel. However we have been dumping premix from our landscape equipement into pick ups for years. We always do it w/ a full tank. Never had a problem. Are trucks aren't clunkers either. My p up has a 34 gal gas tank. What's a pint or...
  13. Wide Pegs

    Are wide pegs just an mx kind of thing?? I just ride trails, (c rider). I have small feet, size 8. i've wondered about wider pegs but i can't say i have noticed any problems w/my stock pegs. I'm always up for something that helps the bike fit or feel better. Is this one of those things you...

  15. Cycle News

    Anyone get this rag. I picked up an issue at the mc shop that was all dirtbikes. Looked like a yearly issue kind of thing. Is it all dirt bikes all the time or is it just all about bikes?? Do you think it's worth a subscription??
  16. Dmxs

    What's up w/this site?? I stumbled on it and tried to play an old show. I got a 4 1/2 minutes of rap (catchy tune) and then got to hear some twit try and be funny doing a MX related monolog for another 6 minutes. It Sucked!! I tried to move ahead to see if there actually was an interview and...
  17. Suspension Maintenance

    About the end of last july I had Factory connection redo the forks and shock on my drz. When it was done they replaced one bushing, the teflon was peeling. Since then i have ridden probably 600 miles of typical New Englan terrain. Dual sports and regular trail riding. In two crashes the bike...
  18. Debris in '97 YZ 250 forks

    I have an 01 drz e. I had factory connection redo the forks for me. the bike had probably 600 to 800 miles on it. One of the bushings was falling apart just like you describe. Seemed a little premature to me!! Guess they caught it before things started leaking. Now i'm wondering whats going to...

  20. John Sabastian Roy & CMX

    Has this guy ever run an ama supercross or National?? I've been watching the canadian mx on speed and this guy looks pretty good. It seems like a lot of the AX guys race canada in the summer. I'm guessing this guy is just a notch down from the ama guys. Or is more like 2 or 3 notches?? Where...
  21. Canadian Motocross on NOW

    Don't for get the speedway racing that comes on before it!! I thought the canadian mx was good too! Nice watching guys dice!
  22. Technique for clearing slippery angled roots/logs

    Elaborate please!! Is this one of those counter intuitive things like driving in the snow, i.e. turn into the slide. On the bike would you shift your weight in the direction of the slide to keep your weight centered on the bike. Or shift your weight onto the front of the bike and let the back...

  24. Auto tranny test

    Thanks for the replies!! Lots of good tips, glad i made the post!! For the record i never heard the term Power Brake. In my neck of the woods a brake stand is when you push down on the brake then step on the gas and light up the rear wheels. Is this the same thing as a Power Brake?? Again...
  25. DRZ 400E and water intake??

    My 01 E had the same problem. The "s" doesn't because it's a different carb. The carb vent tubes are already "T'd" All you have to do is take one leg from each vent tube and run it up under the gas tank and zip tie it in place. Presto end of problem. As mentioned ther ewas quite a write up on...
