    BG is right. We have been to southern Colorado in June and some trails weren't open. And when the snow is melting, the mosquitos are bad. I'm leaving for Sargents, Co. In the morning. It's supposed to be a nice week with highs in the 70s. Will go Jeeping the first day, and then trailrydr is going to join me, and hopefully jsned. And anyone else that wants to come along. LOL, but don't expect any hard and fast riding in the gnarly stuff!

    I am sure he has at least one uncle that will help him through!

    So sorry to hear about that. A HUGE slam in life. Did they have children? Sorry it took so long to respond. I notice you posted that 7 hours ago, but I never got notice in email. That's been happening a lot lately.

    Thanks dmac. In a way I like the natural sounds in the videos. It's more like actually being there. And although I have switched over to 4 strokes, I love the sound of the 2 smokers.

    One other thing. I think there is a check valve (ball?) To prevent back flow in the acc pump. Make sure it is working.

    REKLUSE was on the bike when I bought it. Otherwise it probably wouldn't have one. But I'll admit, they are really nice in some tight situations. Don't remember the exact price, but saw one on eBay the other day for around $400. Mine is the old style with 20 steel balls that actuate the centrifugal clutch, which is heavier than the stock pressure plate. So, now that I am thinking about it, the effect should be similar to flywheel weights. Don't know it it is true, but read several days ago that you can unplug the throttle position sensor to help calm down the surge of power. The carbs on the 150 are so finicky, I considered trying to adapt the regular carb off my 230 to use on it. I've worked on carbs since the 1960s, and never had so much trouble getting one to work right.

    No, I haven't used a flywheel weight. Priced them and they are ridiculous expensive. The REKLUSE clutch solves some of the low end problems. But they are famous for having a bad accelorator pump. This is the 1st bike i have ever had that uses one. I had to replace the diaphram. And they are really touchy about the low speed mixture setting. Just an 1/4 turn off can be a problem. Don't know if it is just mine, or if they are all like that. But even with it tuned right, and modifying the cam on the throttle grip, it is really touchy. Just barely give it throttle and it wants to GO! Mine is starting and running great right now. Hope it stays that way through next week in Colorado.

    Yep! I had a 71, 125 Duster, the 74 as above, and a 78 DS 185. Non of them ever let me down on a ride.

    I did my best to re-create the 1971 ride. Rode a 1974 TS 185 and used open face helmet. But this time I was using arm and leg guards under my clothing, and the helmet had a pull down face shield. And the 1971 Zuki didn't have bark busters.

    Here are a couple of pics of trailrydr9 and me eating a snack on Continental Divide trail, which is one of the trails near Sargents. This was 2 years ago when I was celebrating my 75th birthday, and 45th anniversary of my 1st ride in Colorado. This is a beautiful single track trail that runs down the ridge of the Continental Divide south of Monarch pass.

    Is the Sargent area the same as Taylor Park? No, I would guess it is about 40 miles almost due south of Taylor park. It is on hiway 50 about 1/2 way between Gunnison and Salida. But the crowds havent discovered it yet, LOL, so don't tell anyone. There are hundreds of miles of Jeep trails and single track in the area, and you can ride out of the tiny town to much of it. You can ride north over Tomichi pass and Cumberlin pass to Taylor park. We did the jeep trails in that area in the 70s and 80s, but haven't seen much of the area south of hiway 50 where more of the single track is. Check it out on Google earth. Sargents is at the bottom of the mountain on the west side of Monarch pass. Don't you feel a sickness coming on that will take some riding to cure??

    Got the REKLUSE updated today, and it works great. Am hoping to go to Sargents, Colo the week of the 16th. Hope to get a ride in before the snow blocks the trails. Join us if you can. LOL, had a goofy mistake that tested my patience. Decided to move my kill button while waiting on oil to drain. When got the bike back together, took it to the pasture to try it out. It kept dying on me, then would start up and run a few more minutes. Noticed it happened when i hit a bump. Pushed it back to the shop and started the usual checks. Noticed a small piece of plastic on the floor. It was a small piece of insulating material that had fallen out of the switch, which allowed the contact to ground when I hit a bump. What the heck. The rest of the day went well.

    Who is the teenager on the big bike?? It is great that you do things like that with the kids.
