Are we going to be going through a tech inspection prior to the start of the race? If so will we also need spark arrestor, license plate, horn and mirror. Thanks!

Can I mount a 12w halgen battery powered light designed for mountianbiking and pass inspection? I would like to ride my MX bike in the Enduro.

nate, you should probably go through tech inspection. i hear they also check to see if the tranny oil is fresh and filled to the right amount, and that you have working brakes. (don't pick on magoo, that's my job)

I was hoping we don't have a tech inspection so I can run my super-short pro circuit silencer, take my brake pedal off (so it doesn't snag on anything) and run the same tranny oil I ran in Upland. Just kidding. My bike will be ready at the start. I just can't help stupid integrated rear master cylinder/resevoir brakes. KTM's efforts to keep MXA happy are hindering their bikes....look at what everyone is doing to their '04's. I've had the problem on my '03 all year. I'm used to riding without back brakes. barkbuster66, do I know you???

Ryan,

Working headlight ? or just a headlight ? Do you have a idea of how much road mileage there is going to be?

Thanks Weld it

Ryan, please send map. I love your guy's enduro. Hopefully I get the go from the boss (wife) :)
Isn't there another one scheduled at BYRON for this year or is this it?

As to the light questions...well, I don't think anyone is going to tell you what you want to hear (no lights), but I do know that if you make an effort to put lights on your ride, you'll most likely be ok.....read: "we just need to see lights mounted ...."
Tranny Oil....you mean you can actually change that?

Try to look legal and you won't have a problem. A non-working headlight is probably better than a flashlight taped to your number plate if you know what I mean. If you look legit, nobody will question it.

We have around 62 ground miles and about 10 miles of road. Most of the road is gravel but we had to run a paved road for a mile or so due to land being up for sale.

Wolf can you send me your email again, I can't seem to find it, sorry.

Lights mounted, if they work or not is your responibility. If bikes look legal it helps us and any IL enduro club out. Looking legal gives people nothing to complain about, MX bikes on the road and people complain.

No lights mounted = No Start, Flashlight taped to front fender = no start

Sorry but that's how it has to be.

Now I know how to win. I go through the pits and steal the headlight off all of the bikes in the SS class. ;)

Ryan, Lets just hope the weather holds and we don't get much rain.

I'm guessing Walt??? If so, glad to see you finally stopped cherry-picking in the b class and moved up to the a class.
