    MCCCT trail ride out of Lake City Mi. 9/9

    I didnt end up going up and riding BECAUSE when I got up Friday morning to leave I could not find my wallet which I lost at home the night before. I looked in places you wouldnt believe so today I'm goingto SOS and getting my temporary and getting a new debit card and order a new credit card so now the plan is leaving this Thrusday or Friday and riding for 3 or 4 days. I have a place in Lake George, 30 travel trailer if anyone wanys to ride any of those days (Friday - Tuesday) of next week. I'm really trying to avoid doing it on my own. Email me or respond to the reply if you are intersested. Regards, Rob

  3. Anyone intersted in doing an adventure ride next week? I'm going up by myself and would really like other riders if possible. I was thinking 3 or 4 days camping along the way of Hoteling it if the weather gets nasty. I open to riding 9/16 if that works better, just let me know. I ride an 07 WR450F with some slight upgrades for the purpose of doing the longer runs like Baha tank, rear rack, 140mm rear tire and I made it street legal so I can ride everywhere. Any takers wold be great. Please email me if you are interested. Kind Regards, Rob

    Where do I take 2 8 yr old boys riding - no sand

    Thanks, I look into mini tracks in the area.
  5. I'm going to take my son and his buddy out trail riding this weekend and was wondering where near Lake George (just North of Calre) can I take them? I want to stay away from sand or they will get discouraged quickly. Thanks!

    Leota - your opinion

    Denton trail is pretty sweet. A little muddy in the beginning but after that it is great. Sand isn't too bad and it isn't wooped out. It is a little narrow for quads so you shouldn't encounter too many. Rob
  7. Grand Ledge is just west of Lansing. I have a cottage in Lake George (just North of Clare) and like the west side too. Thanks for the tip regarding "North section" I'll check it out. Bikes - 2007 WR450F & 1991 KTM 300
  8. Hey all, I'm looking for some riders to do the MCCCT trail in Mid michigan. I ride a street legal WR450F. Also in mid September I'm looking to ride from Grand Marais (UP) to Copper Harbor over a 4 or 5 day period and camp along the way. I currently ride by myself and would like to find other people (guys and gals) with the same type of interests. I'm married and have three kids and like to work hard and play hard. Many thanks Rob (Grand Ledge Mi.) rhicksmtb@yahoo.com

    Beta weak spark ??

    Find out what the stater leads are supposed to be at..Black to red = 1700 ohms etc and get a digital meter and see what you have. Do not buy a coil or stator until you have verified the outputs.

    weak spark 1991 KTM MX300

    All: I have figured out the problem and I want to post this very important information. If you have weak spark or no spark do the obvious and verify all wires are connected and clean then check the leads on the stator. On the SEM stators 1991 - 1996/7 they were prone to failure and I mean more freaquent than a flat tire so thest the following leads from the stator: Black/Red 1.7 KM ohms (or 1700 if you have a digital) Blk/Green 165 ohms +_ 20 Green/Red 1.7 km ohms (or 1700 if you have a digital) Yellow to yellow 1 ohms My reads were as follows: B/R 1728, B/G 171, G/R 1900 and Y to Y -infinity Coils do not go bad that often even though the CDI is intergrated into the Coil..trust me I spend 175.00 on a new coil and it wasn't the skoking gun. By the way the coil is for sale...cheap. Rob

    weak spark 1991 KTM MX300

    I can't get my bike to fire up. Spark is weak. What should the output voltage be at the stator on a decent kick? What should be the voltage output at the plug on a good kick? Many thanks!
