  1. Grand prix cycles in Albany oregon Bill's Husky in Salem oregon. Both owners ride trial and dirt on a gas gas and are very knowledgable and helpful
  2. I'm here for sprint enduro, you gonna make it
  3. Tums...arm pump is acid build up in your arms. Take a couple tums before you ride and its significantly reduced.
  4. Welcome Mark, Lots of pros and cons to new vs used beyond the obvious. New and shiny is always nice but not always the correct decision. I would take the used approach since your in college and have the rest of your life to buy new shiny bikes. I would suggest you find a lower mileage gently used bike that is mostly stock. Just because it has aftermarket parts doesn't mean it's the correct or most beneficial part for you or the bike. Continue to do research and find out what to look for that is or should have been maintained...sprockets, chain, air filter, does it start and idle, run thru the gears. These all seem like basic things but you would be amazed and how many people dont know how to properly jet a carb or adjust the chain slack. I am 100% against leasing because it will never be yours, anything you add to the bike or damage you will end up losing money on. I am not sure where you are located but you can get a clean SM for 5-6k around here, life happens and people dump bikes for the next shiny toy they have to have.
  5. New tires, kick stand mod and installed re-flashed cdi, new anti-gravity battery with new positive and ground wires
  6. I've had several klx/drz pit bikes from stock to fully built with big bore kits and kx65 suspension and they are phenomenal. I've never had a ssr but I've had several buddies with them, and while they are good bikes they don't compare to a mildly built klx. All depends on how hard you want to ride and your size. My buddies ended up selling the SSR to build a klx bike if that says anything. The best part about the SSR is the price point
  7. Oregon is great. Bend is high desert with a few slower technical sections but mostly fast single track. Western Oregon is all slow technical and you can ride the dunes at the coast. I live in eugene and I'm about 1.5 hours to bend, 1hr to the coast and 15minutes-2hr drive to all the technical single track you could ever want.
  8. My bike was all plug and play. I'm in Oregon, catch a flight. I have spare bikes

  13. Supposedly the starter issues has a bulletin out that will fix it. I will get my back in the shop in the next 2 weeks and report back if it is fixed.
  14. Not sure about your elevation but I rode mine stock jetting, needle and slide for 2 tanks with bike being really rich and then adjusted everything. Mine is riding spot on now. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
  15. I used a Suzuki needle and changed the slide and definitely improved the bike
  16. When I was doing research for my new bike my dealer helped me along through the process and answered all my questions. I have a ktm dealer 6 miles from my house, while they are a good dealer I was looking for a great dealer and great bike which I found in GG. My GG dealer is about 50 minutes from me and took the time to answer all my questions. I think your dealer input and support is very much a part of the buying process. I came from a 4 stroke ktm and still have the bike that now sits and is currently up for sale. I have resolved(for the most part) the GG starting issue, which isn't/wasn't a big deal to me. Time will tell on longevity and durability over time and as the hours start racking up.
  17. I have a 300 gp and love it, the brands your interested in are all terrific bikes. I would suggest riding them and see what fits you the best.
  18. I could go look but I don't care if it's Chinese or made by aliens. I flip the switch and it works.
  19. Oh, look at the brains on Brad! Lol! There are many versions of solar panels, controllers, battery. Everything for $89 including 3 strip lighting? Well I hope it is all you wanted it to be! Well it has worked for the last 4 years in our work cargo trailers that are used daily...So ya that's good enough for me
  20. I bought a solar panel, controller, all my wiring and 3 led strips for $89 and also bought an agm battery for $79. Interstate battery had all this in stock. I will post pics later this week when I get home. Next I will wire a plug for stereo, air compressor and heater to run off my generator outside.
