    I am pretty sure I have a Kouba link around here somewhere that I would sell if you are interested.

    Aftermarket Carb - is this the right Edelbrock?

    I have the Edelbrock pumper on my 2001. Still going strong after all this time. I love how easy it is to adjust the needle for flatland or mountains. I had the Mikuni first and it actually had a better hit to it, but it interfered with the starter when I put electric start on my XR400.

    make sure you have rain gear and tire repair kits too.

    3 days at Taylor Park

    I thought the entrance to Dr Park was at dinner station. Has that changed and it is one-way down now?

    for the price, those KTM tools should be gold plated.

    Knee pads

    I never used to wear knee guards. Started riding dual-sport/dirt when I was about 27. At 35, I wrecked and shattered my kneecap. So for the last 22 year, I have not had a kneecap in my right knee. Get some kind of knee guards. Even if they are inexpensive ones. Something is better than nothing. You can live without a kneecap but the way they had to hook the tendons up, the leverage is all wrong so although I can walk pretty normal, I can't make the motion like stepping up on a stool or similar with my right leg because the muscle leverage does not work right.

    Holy Cross

    I have done this a couple times. First time was in 1988 with a street legal Honda XL350R and my buddy on a Yamaha XT350. We started in Taylor Park, rode up over Taylor Pass, down into Aspen, took the highway over Independence Pass and then over to Holy Cross City. Rode up and actually ended up with a square nail puncturing my tire up near the townsite. My buddy rode back to Taylor Park by way of Buena Vista while I hitched a ride in another rider's truck into Leadville. My buddy made it back to Taylor but ran into snow over Cottonwood so called the gas station we were supposed to meet at and said he was not coming back that night. I found a hotel across the street and in the morning he was back with a tube and a tire around his waist. We swapped them out and headed back up to the top and then hiked all the way up to where the bucket line was at the very top meadow area. From what I remember, on a bike it is like 45 minutes from bottom to top. Rode it again in 2000 and there was a bridge across the mud bog area this time that was not there back in 1988. Would love to do it again.

    DIY Coolant heated handle bars

    Fuel hose is not made for antifreeze and not for those temperatures either. Most likely, the tube will become brittle and start to break off inside and run into your radiator. At some point, it may just fail and spray hot antifreeze everywhere. SS braided hoses will most likely have Teflon tubes so they could be used.

    I have Foremost insurance. I found them cheaper than Progressive. Mine is $350 per year for 7 bikes and a trailer but they don't all have full coverage on them. I think progressive would not insure my enclosed trailer unless I had the tow vehicle with them also.

    !!PLEASE HELP URGENT!! 2005 crf250x

    does it pop at all with starting fluid? that would take the carb out of the equation.
