      Any iOS app devs in the house that can provide a little help?   10/17/2017

      We've been working on a new native app build for TT using a 3rd party's code base.  If we have any apple devs in the house that can help me generate the proper adhoc certificates and load them up into x-code, please shoot me a PM.  I have the full source code of the test version of the app. I just need some help building the required certificates and installing them into the app via x-code.  Please shoot me a PM if you'd be willing to lend a hand. https://thumpertalk.com/messenger/compose/?to=2

Changed the front tube which only had 16 miles on it  :excuseme: .

 

And an oil change .

 

I did not pull the screen at the bottom of the reservoir because there is never

anything in there every time I have checked so why screw with the oil line .

 

Switched to Rotella T 15-40  when I put in the Rekluse 2 years ago and have had zero issues and no Rekluse adjustments needed since the install .

I put a hole in the bottom of my clutch cover.  Too much hard enduro.

 

Hinson billet, here I come ($150 later but cheaper than finding it because the engine seized).

Are those the radiators that you can order from ebay? If so how well do your Rad guards fit around them being that they're larger than OEM?

I run the devil guards. They fit perfectly fine. With a little room around it. The back support bracket sits right on it but no problems. This is my second pair and the first lasted 4 years with guards and didn't crumple till a couple weeks ago lol

Rebuilt my front forks, Installed new bars, clutch lever and grips. Put on the new styled front fender. Installed the New Ebay radiators. Had to wiggle them a bit for a decent fit but they're on. Re-installed my FMF 4.1 and now awaiting my next shipment of parts.

My gytr competition Ecu /yz throttle stop screw kit came today. Put that on. Went to Walmart and got a battery maintainer and hooked it to the battery so I can quickly plug it in for when it's sitting in the garage. Also stuck a wireless hour meter to the frame.

      Very nice Rekluse Core EXP 3.0 Clutch that has been ran for about 40 - 50 hours.  The Core EXP 3.0 gives you the best of both worlds as it is fully automatic and allows you to operate it just like you would a manual clutch.  Was getting ready to install in a 2017 YZ250F so I wanted to freshen it up and bought a brand new EXP 3.0 Disc which has never been oiled up or installed.  Before getting time to install the clutch, I decided to sell the bike.  It fits a 2014 - 2018 Yamaha YZ250F. 
      ONLY $575 shipped anywhere in the lower U.S.
      Please call or text me at 801-362-8899.
      Thanks!

      Hi guys I just did a top end rebuild on my 2004 yz450f and I inspected full motor, replaced the bottom end gaskets and seals, timing chain, cylinder, piston,rings, top end gaskets, valves, spark plug, and it ran fine fr about 15 hours besides a quiet ticking noise. I was put riding the other day and after about 6 hours of riding that day my buddy asked what my rev limiter sounds like and I said i don't know and I don't want to blow it up and he said it won't blow up so I started it up and pinned it to hear the rev limiter and I only held it open for one second and then it backfired and died. I tried to start it back up and the compression is extremely low. I can push kick it over with my hand easily. Pulled the head off and found some very small metal particles on the cams, timing was fine, and the top of the piston is ok, (haven't taken it out of the cylinder yet).... Anyone know what it could be???

      Hello everyone! I am new to the forum and this is my first post. I would like to ask for some advice regarding some upcoming motorcycle purchases. My parents are in the process of purchasing a mountain cabin here in Colorado (Redfeather lakes) some time soon. The cabin is surrounded by dirt roads and trails so they intend to buy several dirt bikes for me as well as my younger brother and sister to put around on while we are staying up there. I would like to ask for some advice/ suggestions regarding which motorcycles would be the best choice for me (my younger siblings as well). So, I have a few years of dirtbike-riding experience on a crf100, but that is it. I haven't ridden one in a long time though I do have a sport bike which I ride a lot now.  I have an affinity for two-strokes and would love to pick one up. There are several nice older ktm 300 exc's on craigslist for around 3,000 dollars , as well as several yz250s in a simlar price range. I would love to have the ktm, but I am afraid that the maintenance cost will be very high despite it being a two stroke. The yz is a motocross bike but I hear that they can work as a trail bike. There is even one nice looking kdx 220 that I have my eye on (My friend says that its the greatest trail bike ever made. Is that true?). Would any of those be preferable to another, and come someone touch on the maintenance costs of those bikes (replacing top ends and such?)? There is always the option of a four stroke as well and I guess there are a lot more options there, though as i said I would prefer a two stroke. I saw a few nice xr400s, some crf450x's (is that overkill?), a REALLY nice klx 300 (my dad had one of these), some others also. Basically, can someone chime in on what would be the best bike to get? Does this all just boil down to preference? Basically I am just looking for a reliable, fairly powerful bike that I could pick up for a few grand and is preferably 2 stroke but doesn't have to be. Thanks!
