Desert Ride on the Pig

Did some riding Saturday. The BRP really handles great in the wide-open desert!


:cry: Ever do any riding around St George? I've heard there is some pretty goods woods riding around Brian Head??

I've never rode around St. George. I'd like to some time. They have some good single track riding up in the mountains around here too. Next Summer I plan on getting up in the mountains more. I bet you have some good riding in your area. We have family in Prescott.

The best riding around St. George is east and south onto the Arizona Strip. Amazingly huge chunks of BLM land. Great fire road sort of riding.

There is some nice trail riding around Brian Head. I used to ride there a lot 20 years ago on my '74 Yamaha TY 250 trials bike. Great bike for that area. Not sure I'd want to take a big thumper up there. I did it once, on an XR500. It got a little crazy in the tight stuff. I have no idea what the open riding areas are like there now. I do have some friends who go there for mountain biking.

Don't tell anyone how good the powder is, don't need any more skiers on those slopes.

      I have this issue several times and cannot seem to figure it out. The four clutch spring bolts are the weakest bolts I have ever come across. I am not sure what the torque specs are, have the shop manual, have searched online and I can only guess it's around 4 ft/lbs. I have been told 8 and they seem to break every time around 7.
      What is the proper torque for these bolts?
      Should I find stronger bolts? I would still stick to the proper torque, but feel as if these things are butter.

      Prior to reassembling the case, I tested the shifting and it seems the center fork attached to the shaft seems to stick at the steepest section of the drum. I have cleaned and tested all forks and surfaces for smooth movement, tried it with silicone and oil. With very little help, it seems to shift ok, but without the help, it binds.
      Can I assume that once it is together the oil lines are attached and oil is added to the case, the binding will stop? I have tested every scenario short of assembling the entire motor.
      Should I be able to successfully test the shifting with the case apart?
