      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

What did you do to your WR today?

4,511 posts in this topic

Installed Cycra stealth hand protectors (the roost only kind) and a ProCircuit Ti-4 GP pipe. :excuseme:

I've gotta say, the Cycra composite bracket sucks. It just isn't rigid enough and the shields vibrate to the point that they're visually annoying. I'm going back to Bert's and exchanging them for the aluminum bracket kind. (Fwiw, I refuse to ride with the closed bar brackets, but that's just me).

Mostly broke-in the WR. 2nd pair of Cycra handguards marked "aluminum" had composite brackets. Back to Bert's again. Grrr..... :excuseme:

Found out that Little Rock OHV area is closed "until February 2003, or until further notice."... w to the TF is our tax money going to anyway??? At least open something ELSE up. Jeez... !!!

Rowher Flats and Drinkwater Flats are both closed too. That leaves San Gabriel OHV (the crappiest one imo) the only one of the four open in Angeles NF. What a load of crap!!! :smirk:

Sito, if it's any consolation, I had a hanging idle today and my mid was popping. Time to tune my carb too. lol

Pulled her outta "winter storage", fired her up, and started to pour on the love. Think it's almost time to put away the snowmobile. I put her in storage all kinda bent up last fall. So, I apologized profusely, then threw on some new Rental 966 bend bars, Pro Taper Pillow grips, and a new right Moose handguard. She's purring and ready to rip. Might have to barge on Friday afternoon, looks like I'm gonna have the afternoon off. :excuseme:

I finally broke down and took the time to wire up my dual sport kit. The blinkers are 21 watts each so they are nice and bright. I ran a dedicated line for an HID (soon to come) and everything is wired through the main power switch (minus the HID)! I do have to say that if you DONT have the time...a Baja Designs or equivalent dual sport kit would be well worth the money. In my case, I had plenty of time...in total with the stator mod, reg/rec, blinkers, switch and plate holder I have under 175 bucks into my home brew'd dual sport kit will about 10 hours of labor spent wiring it up but I took my time, drank a few beers and made sure it was done right :excuseme:

The only thing its missing is a horn...Im using the horn button as my PTT

Front with the blinkers off

front with left blinker on

IMG00049.jpg

The blinkers and head light switch and PTT

IMG00050.jpg

The read button is my kill switch and the black button is my e start

IMG00051.jpg

Im missing the stock speedo (didnt work with my aftermarket hubs but the cool thing is I have plenty of room for HID stuff

IMG00052.jpg

And the rear!

Changed oil for 1st time, install vortex x10, adjust adjustable leak jet, PASS TEXAS INSPECTION!!! "...uh, technically I'm not supposed to pass this b/c there's no high beam indicator, signals indicator, and the horn sounds like...an electronic tone. But this bike is so cool..."

The guy inspecting it popped a power wheelie in 2d on his test drive--the guy is easy 280lbs. "My dirt bike can't do that!"

      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!
