    SSR 189 Spark Arrestor

    Daughter is getting back into riding and am in need of a spark arrestor for her 2016 SSR 189, anyone know of an easy mod to insert a spark arrestor (like a pro motobillet or ??) or a universal muffler with spark arrestor?

    Thanks. Do you happen to recall what brand the screen is that you bought?

    SSR 189 Spark Arrestor

    It does not have an SA out of the box, SA's for this bike have not been produced until recently. Pro Circuit makes a system for it and then the Universal FMF is supposed to fit as well. But am hoping to find another cheaper option. Any help will be appreciated.

    Valve Shim is Stuck

    Any ideas on how to get a shim out that is stuck? The darn thing plopped right in....hadn't even been ran with that shim in, just trying to get the valves shimmed correct for the '08 cam I'm sticking in it:banghead: Tried using a magnet, which I've had to do prior...but it just won't budge. I can wiggle it even, so I know it's not wedged in...WTH?!?! Anyone have any other suggetions without having to take the darn head off?

    KX65 forum?

    right on, thanks for the info. I just bought my daughter an '07 KX65. She got a serious bug to start racing after going to her first SX event, she says she wants to be the first Pro Woman to make it to the SX Main I see pros and cons to this....but knowing my daughter, I want to do what I can to help with her self confidence. I'm not trying to sound braggy, but she has a lot of natural talent in sports and acedemics, she just lacks confidence which hinders her potential...so figure I would ride with this (pun not intended LOL) and support her. And as an added bonus, this would give me a valid reason to tell ma, "hey, gotta take our daughter out to ride/pracitice...see ya later." Anywho, I hope that this KX is more reliable than our friends '07 KTM65...my buddy is constantly working on it and his son is pretty easy on that thing...he rarely gets out of 2nd.

    Beshaw fundraiser G-stone Sat Apr 10

    Good times out there today. Didn't get as much seat time as I would like to have, but hey, it was for a good cause:thumbsup: Dang, didn't know there was a ST to ride on as well...doah!

    Beshaw fundraiser G-stone Sat Apr 10

    Sloppy Stearing

    During a race, the large nut (and I'm not talking about the rider:p) that holds the upper triple clamp in place came off...and ever since then, the steering is real sloppy. When holding the front tire between your legs and twisting the bars, there is a lot of flex...more than normal. I can see the triple clamp move under the nut still, yet I have it torqued to spec....I loosened the bolts to clamp the forks to make sure the upper triple clamp presses down as I torque the nut....but nothng changed. What am I missing here? It's a frightening feeling to have that bar twisting more than normal in some gnarly chop/deep loam:bonk:

    Sloppy Stearing

    thanks fellas, I'll mess with it again...from talking to kelstr, my guess is that the nut under the upper clamp is not tight enough, as "dav" suggested...stay tuned:ride:

    Best way to lace and true a wheel

    OK...here may be a dumb question...which of the 2 spokes is longer, the inner or the outter? I made the mistake of not checking when I removed the old spokes:bonk:Logically I would think outter, but as I put all the spokes on, it may be the opposite. Anyone know for sure before I make the switch? Thx

    Got the Shakedown @ Wildcat

    yep, rode from there yesterday. God I love the desert right now. I do have one of those overpriced PMB endcaps, I figure the $113 it cost me for the PMB is a lot less than the ticket I might get later if I do not have one:thumbsup:

    Biking around Scottsdale Feb 9-14th?

    I would put it as more of a Traditional and not a Modern track:p It is mostly natural terrain, but still fun as all heck....it is only about 15 minutes from 101/FLW:thumbsup: Speedworld, Canyon, and ET all have night practice during the week. ACP, Firebird, Grindingstone, and Motoland just during the day...although in the summer Firebrid and ACP will have night practices as well:thumbsup:There is a race nearly every weekend somewhere, best source for MX races is www.gomxracing.com

    Biking around Scottsdale Feb 9-14th?

    Tracks are open every day of week here year round, except monday. We have so many to choose from as well: Grindingstone Canyon Speedworld ET ACP (arizona cycle park) Firebird Motoland Most of these tracks have night practice during the week (on weekends as well in the summer). There are trails/single track near Scottsdale as well. So you have lots of options:thumbsup:

    Taking the boy to ET Saturday

    It should be open, not suppose to get any more rain and they say they are open today: http://www.gomxracing.com/forum/showthread.php?t=36527 I rode it Tuesday and it was pretty good....had one really soft spot that even bogged the 450 a bit when I hit it, but other than that it was actually pretty good. I just had the mental "puss factor" going on as it looked intimidating...and after not riding for a month and having suspension that felt completely different (in a very good way, Randy with RMR whom use to be Motoworks did an awesome job on it from what I can tell so far) The bike seems to really stick to the ground much better. How have you been?

    Girl Bike and Bonded Title AZ Questions

    First thing I have to ask, rather than assuming, is...Does she have any interest/desire to actually ride? If so, does she really want something with a clutch? Or even 2 wheels vs 4 wheels?... this will help to figure out what kind of bike/quad to get her....I know my wife would not like a clutch at all, so she just tools around on my daughters PW80 once in a while and father in-laws quad. Make sure to talk to her and find out more of what she will be comfortable starting out on. If she is not comfortable/happy, you will be wasting time/money This is my .02

    Paul Miller benefit Ride Sunday 1/10/10

    LOL. I love obstacles that make me think as to how to approach and get across them. I'm probably a SX kind of guy, if it came to it. Loved the SX track ACP used at one of their rounds back in '05 when I raced their series. I need to try SW's AX track one of these days. Guess I still have some kid left in me:busted: Jonah, you should at least build a nice set of whoops....or even another fun rhythm section that guys can find their own way through (double, triple, etc through 'em)....maybe on that long straight stretch on the south end. Just a thought:ride:Keep up the good work if things work out for me, I'll be out there next Tuesday night:thumbsup:

    Paul Miller benefit Ride Sunday 1/10/10

    Good pics Brett. And yes, Jonah has been doing a great job with the track there...I'd like to see it a tad more technical though, it's still a pretty fast track....but still fun in it's own way, plenty of stuff that can be worked on to gain more speed:ride:

    Ever heard of G-Force Richter Wheel's?

    So has anyone snagged a set of these? If so, I'm wondering how they are holding up:thumbsup:

    Grindstone Pee Wee track

    Sounds like we left our home town/state close to same time....been here since '90, hard to beleive half my life has been here:bonk: As for Canyon, it is definitely a jumpy kind of track, keeps you on your toes....nothing do or die, just very busy. GS is much more mellow in that sense, but is by far a faster track...I love them both, GS teaches me raw speed while Canyon teaches me to gain some endurance As long as your having fun, that is all that matter/counts:thumbsup:I love singetrackin' as well....maybe we should hook up for a ride sometime:ride:

    Grindstone Pee Wee track

    Too Old?!?!? Man, you are making me feel old now:banghead: You're only as old as you allow yourself to be I still need to get out there and check out the AX track. Was going to check it out after the GP race on New Years, but that idea was killed when the bolt fell out of my bar clamp at the start of my last lap....scared the crap out of me when I landed off the fly away jump in front of the starting gate and suddenly my handlebars are twisting, thus no steering:eek: I just prayed that the wheel did not hit something and twist while I tried coasting to a stop, luckily it didn't turn Have never had that bolt fall out before, it is now on my pre-ride checklist as I may not be so fortunate next time should that happen again

    Grindstone Pee Wee track

    That is what I am wondering, will for sure check it out...thanks:thumbsup: They tore it out for now...suppose to build it again this month some time

    Scratch that...Was prepping to go tomorrow and noticed one of the rear brake pads disintegrated down to almost metal on metal...kind of strange because the other pad looks almost brand new still <shrug> Have fun and be safe:ride:
