    2010 AMA/Husqvarna Vintage Days Report

    On the CC he rode a 250wr, on Sunday a 430wr - prepped by x support rider Craig Hayes. He is trying to ride a few more vintage rides this year:thumbsup:!

    I use SMS in Denton,TX. The owner(Brian Storrie) is an 8x ISDE rider so he knows his bikes!

    Newbie needs help---78 husky no spark

    Vance is the go to guy - great work if you want motosplat! He has repaired 3 of mine with great results. The other 2 options are MZB or PVL, every rider has his/her preference. I like the the pvl for moto due to it's weight and the plat for trail work. I have a friend who is trying to talk me into the mzb due to the capacitor... something about it storing energy in the capacitor for easier starting.

    Ohlins TTX Cartridge kit for Gas Gas 300 09

    I agree with Pguard - I would spend time and allow the forks to break in and then have them revalved/shimmed before spending big bucks on the OHLINS unless you are an A AA enduro rider. OHLIN makes a great product BUT unless you can ride a bike within 95% plus of it's abilities it's VERY pricey! I would suggest Enduro Engineering or SMS Racing for suspension work.

    Advice on Project Husky

    Stick no higher than $50-$100 for a basket case. The WR is worth upward of $400 providing it's in great shape. A key things I look at -being complete is a big deal(aluminum tanks are worth $150 in need of paint!). EVERY bike I buy is stripped to the frame and 100% rebuilt if I plan on racing it and it runs about $2,000++ for the rebuild. The '79, restored is worth $2500~, not one of the more collectable Husky's. The '76 is about the same due in large part to the tranny(wr) - the cr is worth more. Go for it!

    Maico 440 Problems

    First off... you need to sell it to me for $500:thumbsup:, when I get the bike home I will first check the plug - then I will check the spark(consistant) to make sure the quick basics are done... then I would follow it up with tearing it down and checking clearances(ring/piston/rod) and most likely rebuild it due to not knowing the bike... and I might sell it back to you for $2,500:smirk: after I'm done! Nice chassis, it turns well!

    gas gas ec 200

    The . 200 is like a 125 on steroids - I'm a very firm believer it would be a great bike to truly learn good clutch control. I owned one but being quite a bit older, I prefer a 300. If I were in my teens or 20's the 200 would be perfect! There are no cons - parts are easy to find, reasonable cost and don't break IF you maintain them. Go for it!!

    Who's going to Mid-Ohio?

    I really wanted to go but with no points being paid and my fellow co-riders no attending why go...

    Gas Gas Noob questions - Thanks

    Reliability is as good or better than KTM, the '05GG 200 power is like a large 125 and the KTM is like a small 250... certainly different(I owned an '05 200 new). The GG is better in every way, particularly in handling/suspension! Parts have never been an issue for the 9 years I've ridden GG except in '03 during the intro. of the 400/450 thumpers. It helps when your local dealer carries KTM/GG and the owner is an 8x ISDE rider/RACE TECH Tech and he weighs the same as I do!
