  1. Has anyone rerouted the breather line or added a one-way valve to prevent or minimize leaks. I crash and pivot turn all the time, so the airbox & rear fender are always a mess. I try to put a rag under the airbox drain after every ride, but end up with an oily mess on the bike & floor if I forget.

    New exhaust pipe repair tool

    I've got a smashed Gnarly that I want to try this on. My stock pipe could use a fix too. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F7o-MSOES1M My electric pressure washer is pretty old, so I don't know if has the strength for the job.

    16' 300rr EATS new dash batteries (CR2032)

    I've been on three rides with the "upgraded diode & capacitor" installed and the low battery light hasn't lit up yet. Hope this is the end of my TT battery issue. Fingers crossed!

    16' 300rr EATS new dash batteries (CR2032)

    I replaced 10+ stock computer batteries and the replacement computer battery died half way through the first ride. I'll check the capacitor to see if it's dented and grease all the connections. I read a while back that some folks think the problem has something to do with the oil injection. I'd really hope I can figure this out soon so I can have a functioning odometer.

    Thanks for trying, hdr. It's a Tim Coleman video. https://youtu.be/gLK_s2bssnw

    Amazing! Is this area near Whistler?

    I rode Kauai with Moto Hawaii back in 2005. They were saying how tough Omao is, especially if it's wet. Now I see what they were talking about. I'd love to own a Husqvarna 150 like his. Almost got one instead of the Beta. Is this race more technical than the Mauna Kea 200?
  9. I had Les at LTR revalve and install 44 springs (stock was 42) on my 16 300 OC forks (46's might have been better). I'm 5' 6" & 195# without gear. Kept the rear stock for now with the preload almost at full. Hated the bike stock no matter how I had the clickers set up front. Much better now. I mostly ride slow trials type trails, but the bike does great at higher speeds now.

    Thanks for the help, hdr! I didn't get a chance to ride the XT that's in the video, but I can't imagine it's much different than my 300rr. Really wanted to ride one of the Montesa 300 4RT's in the vid. One had the seat installed and the other didn't. I'm on a Freeride 350 the entire vid. Trails are much like North Shore, I think.

    That looks like a fun trail, wwguy. Sorry to hear about the long hike out and back, but I'm glad you and the bike stopped where you did.

    We had two typhoons weekend before last. Kept us from riding, but the slight drop in temperature sure was nice. It's much like Hawaii over here, just hotter in the summer and colder in the winter. I heard my other home is hot too and in a blanket of smoke from the Canada fires to the north. I'm going to a hard enduro event next weekend at a place the trials riders have been riding for years. It's gnarly!!! I might get some seat time on an X Trainer for the first time. If I do I'll post some video here.

    Yeah, I'm out of shape too. Need to work on that! I rode last Sunday and got my ass handed to me. I drank 5-6 liters during the ride and still got dehydrated. In my defense it was 100+, humid and no wind. Also, the first trail we rode was switchbacks up the side of a mountain with little shade.

    That's the Hong Kong Beta crew, HDR. A group of my Taiwan friends and one from Washington went too. They all said it was an amazing experience. I hope to go one day soon. Erzberg, Romaniacs & New Zealand are on the top of my list.
