    Trail Tech Endurance II

    Yeah what a PITA! I ended up JB welding the damn thing in! Even with special circlip pliers, the clip sucks. It doesn't have two holes to use the circlip pliers like I have before. I also used a lot of curse words trying to get the clip on and it went flying across the garage. Called the manufacturer and they kindly sent me a new one in the mail.

    Not to ask a dumb question but how the hell did you install the retaining clip on the backside of the rotor when installing the magnet in thge pre drilled slot?
  3. After riding my new (to me) bike for a month or so, I have made the decision - I am dropping my front sprocket on a '16 350 XCF to a 13T. Will I need a new chain? If so, how do I go about picking the right one? THANKS!

    D36 cut off times for last lap?

    Norcal Peeps- Noob question, looking to try some D36 events next year. Did the HHORA a couple times and had a lot of fun. In the grand prix style races for example, if the race time on the flyer shows 90 minutes, what is the cut off for example to be allowed the last lap?
  5. I am waiting on my manual to be delivered but can anyone confirm oil capacity for the 16 350 xcf? I would like to change tonight. 10W-50?

    District 36 Prairie City Grand Prix

    Same here. I will be on a yz250f. From what I have read in previous posts and in my searches, yes, a stock tank should be fine. So that I understand correctly - we are simply racing 3 laps till the checkered flag and thats it? I thought it was a timed 1 1/2hr race. If so, then how does that work... what if I pass the line at 1 hr 25 minutes going on my 4th lap, then at 1 hr 30 the checkered flag goes up..and the next guy stops and doesn't have to do another lap?? And so they just use the transponders to see how many laps we did in that time period or something?

    Metcalf Hare Scramble footage 10/9/11

    man I wish I entered that! looks like the perfect 1st timer hare scramble! When will the next one be? Can someone explain the class structure? is vet > intermediate? Is each 'level of skill' split by bike size?

    lets see your bike in anger!!

    Where in wales in this? Im always looking for areas to ride
  10. I siffted through the manual but couldnt find anywhere what the optimal combustion test results are for an 02 YZ125. After testing, mine came out to 120 - 125 Is this ok? what level should I replace the top end?
  11. well I am finally going to get myself on the correct springs. im not going to do any valving or anything. jsut set myself up on the correct springs (currently riding prev owners set up who was way heavier) I am goign to order the springs for the forks. my question is, is the shock spring as easy to swap out? ive serviced front forks before so it wont be a big deal for the front. ive never handled the rear. anything to look for?

    Hollister Hills SVRA this weekend - camping spots?

    o man..maybe i should stay local .... if my buddy gets in there early and gets a spot, is he allowed to buy an overnight pass for me too (sinc eim goign to get there saturday)? or do they not let you "keep dibbs" on camping spots?
  13. Well, ive never been , so I am going to meet up with soem friends down at Hollister this weekend. I know that the GP track has a race this weekend in teh Upper Ranch. Doesn't make a difference anyway since the GP track is only open when the promoters have their races there. I wanted to ask how busy you think it will get there. Will it be tough getting campign spots since there will be people camping for the race? or do race participants not get counted? When I called today,The girl at the ranger station said people usually start showing up THurs/Friday and it is first come first serve camping. My buddies are going to get tehre Friday, but I cant get there until Saturday morning Do you think i will be oK? I dont want to drive down there if Im just going to get rejected at the front gate...... and since its a 3 day weekend plus theres racing, there might be a ton of people camping or should I just call back the ranger station Friday afternoon to get an update on availability for overnight passes?? p.s. i heard there's a couple other mx tracks there open to public. is this true?

    Idea for getting a little faster

    i originally bought a yz250 as a first bike and rode it on off for almost 2 years...then i graduated, and bought a yz125 and all i can say is it was a GREAT call...i kept the yz250 and just rode both bikes. i learned a lot more on the 125...i learned how to jump, how to corner, how to pick lines better. it was such a light bike. and its so much fun! then when i jumped on the 250, i was soo much more comfortable and a better rider. i was faster on the 125 for a long time! the 250 is intimidating with that speed. the 125 helps you learn the basics. you can improve a crap laod form riding a smaller bike!!! best thing is, is that i got a smoking deal on it!!!!!!
