You should start with the type of terrain under the tire and the amount of twist being delivered through your right hand (these things often cause traction problems:)
On a more serious note, make sure the tire is suited to the terrain. The fact that it's new doesn't guarantee that it will hook up under full power. For example, a tire designed for hardpack won't hook up the mud or sand, while a sand tire will just fall apart on rock hard clay.
My 1995 kx250 had much more traction than my 2005. Same tires, terrain and riding location. I understand that my 2005 has more power but it seems like even when Im riding in the low rpm there is much less traction. I was thinking it was maybe a compression or rebound adjustment that is needed. Any suddgestion?
What is the gearing? to low and you will just spin and if your riding softer terrian which you are seeing as all florida is sand!!!! air down a little?
on another note you been up to croom lately? been great riding with the rain we been getting, muddy in the usual places
but better out on the trails
Gearing is 14-51. Was at croom a couple weeks ago and it was perfect! I cant get my friends to cough up the money for a riding sticker so I go by myself all the time which is kinda boaring. PM me if you want to meet up and ride there some weekend. I have to warn you though, I dont have the endurance I had when I was in high school, getting better though.
we have been going 3 times a week sun late in day for a couple hours then on tues and thurs after work for couple hours. i will def shoot you a pm the next weekend we head up there. I had to buy everyone bikes in the house so i would have someone to ride with :bang: before i get my new bike
