Kilauea Crusher Desert Scramble - Woohoo!


Well, I decided for my New Year's resolution that I was going to finally give some sort of racing a try! Friends that I ride with belong to the "Off Camber Motorcycle Club" here in AZ and are putting on this desert scramble.

I have been struggling getting all the information I need to understand, enter and compete at one of these. It seems there is not one person that can answer all the questions I've had... but between word of mouth, AMA, AMRA and OCMC I think I've got a handle on this....

As first everyone was calling this an Enduro and the name implies a Scramble. So I was very confused. Now I know it's the first across the finish line right? Not racing time?? We take off a 1 minute intervals. Two at a time. What is the proper etiquette when someone comes up behind you and wants to pass when you are on single track? Do you have to dive off into the desert to let em by? Is the big thing with a scramble technical terrain?? Or is that just an enduro?

Oh and what does a transponder do?? Where do you carry this? Should I buy one?

I am nervous and super excited to finally compete on a dirtbike....... if I like it I would like to hit all the venues this year! Well enough babbling! Ya'all have a good weekend! :thumbsup:

p.s. say hi if you see me out there! 32S is my number!

You should post this on Most of the people involved with setting it up are on there and can answer your questions.

I just picked up my big bike recently and plan to do the AMRA races. Probably won't make this race, but I plan on doing the one in March. Should be fun.

Anyways, congrats on deciding to race, I think you'll really like the AMRA races.

I had an awesome time today! I learned alot in that first race. I want to do it again! Thanks to AMRA and Off Camber Motorcycle Club for alot of fun! :thumbsup:

If you are starting in 1 minute intervals its a timed event, its not whoever comes in first its who has the fastest time. Oh ya if someone comes up behind you let them buy, if they catch you there faster than you.

GOOD LUCK! :thumbsup:

      So I have a 2008 yz450f and I would like to add some LED lights to it to make it street legal. Mainly just a headlight and a tail light and turn signals if I need to (which where I live hand signals work).
      So where I need help is getting power from the stator to a battery. Wiring from a battery to anything else I got and understand and don't need help with (but recommendations are welcome). So my questions are.
      What type of power is coming from the stator. AC or DC? Will I need a regulator or rectifier? How do I wire something from the stator to charge a battery? What would that wiring look like? Would this stator work? Anything else I should know? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

      KTM has held a unique record in 250SX since 2011—it’s the only brand to have won in every season. Kawasaki did not win in '15, Honda did not win in '17 (and so far, it has not done so this season), Yamaha had no wins in '13, and Suzuki did not have any in '11 nor between 2014-'17, while Husqvarna did not get any wins between '11 and '15. This consistency also yielded KTM's 40th victory in the 125/250 supercross classes, thanks to Jordon Smith's first win in 2018 at last Saturday night's Daytona SX. The Austrian KTM got its first triumph in small-bore supercross back in 2001, with the South African Grant Langston. The most successful KTM winner is Marvin Musquin, who won 11 times. So far, KTM has collected 22 wins in the West Region, while Smith's win was KTM's 18th victory in the East Region. KTM also took its second Daytona victory; Musquin got the first one in '15.

      Have an old book sitting on the shelf and thought I up load some picts.  Waiting for the smoker to do its thing so have some time to kill.  
      I got this from my so called stepdad, he had a type setting company and I am not sure how/why he acquired it.  I will ask him next time I see him.  Not sure if he did any editing, or it was just a gift to him.  I believe this was done for a Italian mfg, not sure.  Anyway, some cool picts bring back mems.  Excuse the camera it is not the best, most are painful to look at so will only upload a few.

      I'm sure some of you have already seen him wearing this kitten stuff but I though It was just on the back of his helmet.   Guess thor persuaded him (or paid him) to put this stuff on.  Or Muskrat is a just a weird guy.
