2019 KX450 ReStackor Analysis
Hi Everyone. I recently decided I was going to take a crack at modeling my 2019 KX450 fork and shock in Shim Restackor due to general interest and a desire to see if I could learn something new during this quarantine. Some backround on me: I'm a former mechanic so I do my own suspension service, oil changes, spring swaps, etc. I can swap shims with guidance, but have never attempted to design my own stack. I'm a mechanical engineer and have a background in hydraulics modeling and fluid
Need help from the OG’s please!!!
What a crazy day of emotions! So I recently got back from Service Ontario, I went in to put the Ownership of the bike (2009 RM-Z 450) into my name and get my Green Plates after procrastinating for 2yrs LOL To make a long story short, according to the Ministry, my bike is able to be Blue Plated 🤯 I know what I need to Cert the bike and can install all the Lights, Speedo/Odo, Horn etc... but what I’m getting stuck on is Wheels & Tires 🤔 I don’t really wa
My bike is in crates and boxes awaiting for parts, and to torture myself further, I tallied up my records to see how much it's been bleeding me over the years. I'll just say that the final sum didn't improve my mood in any way. I was wondering if anyone else keeps records of what Beta bikes are costing you per mile, hour or happiness. Does that factor at all in your impression of the bike and brand? Will it influence the next bike purchase? I also compared how much I've spent on a
2011 Escape AWD dirtbike hitch mount
Hey guys my wife has a 2011 Escape AWD which is basically the vehicle we take when we travel. I want to add a hitch and one of those hitch mount dirt bike carriers from HF so I can bring my 96 cr 250 with us next time we go North. She's on board but I know she won't like it if it makes it squat too much in the ass end. Anyone here have an Escape with this setup? Dont wanna spend the time/effort if it's not a good idea.
Easy to Remove/Roll up Bed Cover
As winter approaches, I realize I'll need some sort of waterproof tonneau cover for my long bed tacoma. I need something that's fairly secure and easy to remove to load the bikes in. I've been looking at the Truxedo Sentry and LoPro. Does anyone have experience with either cover? It appears the lopro will fit my 21 inch tire against the bed no problem, but the Sentry may be to bulky. I found this video, but the guys using a wheel chock which I don't want to do.
Your Ride Today
I want to start a thread where we talk about where and what we rode today (or recently). I'll go first: To the convenience store and back, all of 1 mile on my FS, just to get a couple of things for dinner. Did this a couple weeks ago on my road machine:
Honda TRX 300 carb rubber plug ?????????
Ok gents I’m in need of a rubber plug that goes in the carb of my Honda trx 300. Looks to be the same as the old Trx350d rubber plugs. If it’s not in place it runs rich, and I can’t for the life of me find these anywhere on-line as an individual part. Are these sold separately? Are there substitutes for these? I’ve got my carb all done except for this blasted thing!!! Help!!!
2016 polaris rzr 900
have a 2016 polaris rzr 900 would idle but won't rev out, everytime I hit the gas pedal it would die, any suggestions?
2000 Bayou 300, idle no rev.
Absolutely no clue how this carb works. I was out spraying weeds and it just quit revving. Idles low but dies the instant you try to give it throttle. Checked the jets and float height, no difference. Ideas? Ought to pitch whatever that carb is and put one of my spare 38mm Keihn AS's on it. It's not like I really want it to run so I can spray weeds but unfortunately.................................
No internet connection
I keep getting this error. My internet connection is good, it happens in various locations, on two devices. Seems to be on your end. I'm using the app.
caltrop ads? Sure don't want them
A couple of weeks ago, someone posted a photo of a home made caltrop-type device, and asked what it was. They are, of course, the evil devices spread to deliberately puncture tires to stop movements. I think their use goes back to Roman warriors. So a couple of the usual folks pointed out that they are designed to destroy tires, and maybe crash the bike, stay away, etc. As part of it, I did a general Google search for them, so I could get the spelling right, etc. Ever since, I get ads on
There have been a couple of times where I was involved in a thread when the thread disappeared. When I click on notifications, because someone had responded to one of my posts, I get a message that says, “You do not have permission to view this content”. I’m a bit confused. What does this mean?
