    Need help picking new front tire for DS use.

    Shinko! For the price you'll not be disappointed. I'm on my third set of them and won't be switching anytime soon. I too have sumo wheels for summer and when I swap back to dirt wheels I want traction for the rocky, rutted, rooted up northeast woods. The tires are super gummy and hold up surprisingly well on the road connecting trails.

    Husqvarna title type

    In ct you can leave the dealership with the bike plated just like a car. When I got my 450 last year I rode the bike home. Euro bikes have certificate of origin that state it's a motorcycle and not for closed course only.

    Radio Questions? Mule Answers.

    In regards to radios and comms while riding moto. What say you about the SENA bluetooth systems? I recently bought a set to communicate with my wife when we ride our bikes together, but have yet to use them as the weather he sucks lately. We ride country roads and local trails together.

    Ktm 450 hard start

    On the bikes with a fan you let them run st idle(do not touch throttle at all) until the fan kicks on then shut it down and restart. This is the procedure for the Fe and excf anyways. Not sure how it works for the mx version.

    My new, or new to me, 2000 CR250

    The cardboard case with the bolts sticking out of it was great. I did that before also. Nice touch
  8. My bad, I just use gps with ground speed so I don't have to recalibrate when switching offroad again.
  9. Call dubya in Cali, tell them what you got and they'll send you the wheels laced and ready to mount

    new dr200se wont start

    Maybe in their haste the dealer let you leave before battery was good to go and it's just dead. These are the simplest of bikes really and it can't be much other than what was mentioned already. I'm following too see what it was, as my wife has this bike .

    Boots/foot injury

    Sg12 are the best boots I've owned. A little tight around the ankle until they break in, which wasn't long.
