      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 have I done to my WR lately?

Rode it hard for about 2 weeks straight every night!

Instead of riding last night, I made her a wheel chock, and a couple more for the wife's and son's rides, seeing that we're going on a road trip north on thanksgiving and the trailer has to be ready to go by then.

Installed an Edelbrock carb and a YZ cam. 1000 times better than before. The carb made jetting easy. Screw the FCR carb. It is a POS. The YZ cam gave me extra chugging ability for the tight, uphill, single track, switch backs. My bike is a pleasure to ride. Will be installing some gold valves next.

Stripped all graphics, new Maxxis tires, GYT-R pipe and header, 48 pilot jet, and washed. Waiting for Zipty metal hot start cable screw for the carb (dealer monkey messed up the plastic one while rotating the carb), then I'm going to try a 168 mj.

i have

cut the grey wire

opened the air box

changed the throttle stop screw

pulled the plug on the pipe

picked up my paddle tire

ordered a green 66 led whip which im hoping will run off the tail light

and installed the ais removal kit,

my issues, personally the ais kit said to change the jets after pulling the plug ang change fuel screw setting,, for my bike riding in california by silverwood,, that jet change was a bad move,, popping in the air box,, also left side while sitting on it the two flat head covers need to be watched they loosen and leak oil,,,, love the bike though

next

pipe and jetting before our dumont dunes trip on oct 25th through the 29th

i want to change to the white plastics with grey seat, im going with an irish theme so my number plates will be white with green shamrocks and white letering in the shamrocks

later

stabilizer

help

anyone know what jets to run for dumont and silverwood areas

and has anyone used the kings tire three rib front tire on a two wheeler in the sand,, does it help or is it a waste of cash,,,

Looked at her today in the garage..she had a frown b/c she hasn't been ridden in a couple of weeks.

I'm gonna try to get around to putting the AIS back on tomorrow so that I can go to carnegie next sunday. They're one of the areas thats strictly enforcing smog pump violations and truthfully the $150 ticket isn't worth it. That money is better spent on booze and women :confused:

      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!
