    Tires for Baja-KTM 500

    You'll notice a "dead" kinda of feeling in response and handling (at least I do) when you first get on a set of them. But like anything, after a bit of saddle time with them, it isn't an issue as you adapt to them. I would equate tire pressure to around 14-15 lbs so fast 2 track with sand on it can get squirrelly.

    Tires for Baja-KTM 500

    Last year ran Kenda Parker DT for a 1000 miles of mixed baja terrain. They held up extremely well and will be mounted as a spare wheel set for my next trip in a few weeks. This video was us last Saturday...12 mousse and tires installed...

    Stuck CS sprocket - nut

    Interesting. I did not know that. Been using reco'd settings per manual with an extremely light coating of anti-seize and never had a problem. Yet. knocking on wood as I am preparing my bike for Baja.
  5. As the title states, I've been trying to help a friend remove the nut to replace his CS sprocket. The bike is an 06 KLX 250. To date: Heat PB Blaster overnight 3' extension Rear wheel locked out w/chain through rear sprocket and swing arm Tapping nut Impact gun Nothing is working...holy cow. It has been removed once before according to my buddy but when...I have no idea. I am short of ideas here. Mike

    Stuck CS sprocket - nut

    I did...and explained that even though he is a fair weather rider the importance of being able to work on your own bike, even if it hasn't been ridden for awhile. He hasn't changed the bearings on anything so looks like a complete bearing overhaul from top to bottom is due soon.

    Stuck CS sprocket - nut

    Got it off...lots of heat and 5' breaker bar and rear sprocket chained to swing arm. What a MF'er...ridiculous. I explained to him the wonders of anti-seize and a torque wrench.

    Gate between Mud Mounds and Catavina

    Thanks fro the gps coordinate. Our route goes N by NE of that area about 5 miles so no issues there. We will be in Baja 13FEB-22FEB
  9. In the process of firming up my routes and I see this post on advrider: https://advrider.com/f/threads/baja-thanksgiving-ride-by-my-self.1351298/page-3#post-36492287 Been trying to find out the location of this to see if this will impact our routes after we leave El Rosario. I think its NW of Bill Nichols trail where there appears to be a ranch...deserted boat and a few water tanks on a 2 Track road. So if anyone knows the GPS coordinates of this fence and would like to share...I'd appreciate it. Not looking for tracks or files, just a specific location so I can overlay it and compare to my planned route. Mike

    Gate between Mud Mounds and Catavina

    Thanks...Found San Carlos so assuming that main N/S road is the mesa road you are referring to. Here is where I think the gate is: N29° 46.690' W115° 24.672' - copy and paste into Google Maps. Last year, we had to come back to here for a work around as two ranchers on that road would not let us through. N29° 52.596' W115° 20.058' So we worked from that point N by NW into the next arroyo and then towards El Rosario. This year, we are reversing the route but

    Campershell trail

    When I rode this trail last year, it was an absolute blast going N by NW from Catavina. Didn't see any flaggings anywhere.

    December Baja trip

    Where from WA do you hail from? Auburn myself. Heading down Feb. for 7 days of riding with 7 buddies...counting the days.

    Campershell trail

    I thought it was fun...didn't see any flagging at intersections. Did see a weird billboard proclaiming "Meth Labs...5KM"

    Campershell trail

    Not sure of the trail name but a sweet route between El Rosario to Catavina via 2T and then ST. Took it S to N last year. Had to do a re-route when we were trying to head to the ocean and 2 caballeros said no trespasar. I have the file at home with the re-route...we never did get to the ocean, instead popped out on 1 just east of El Rosario

    Baja 1000 2018

    Will do...day 2 of our trip is coming from Mikes towards Coyote and onto Hwy 1 then Sleeping bag trail and staying at Jardines. Easy day. We could switch that up to include this by taking x-over road towards San Vicente and then later do Sleeping Bag. Choices....

    Baja 1000 2018

    general area without giving it away? I'll see if I can dig up tracks to it and see if I can build it in my trip for February.

    Tire choice with bib mousses

    My rear tire Nuetech last February baja ride got soft after 500 miles. Slab transfer sections got sketchy in twisties. Pulled it off recently and still well lubed but a big ol' slice from one side to another about 16" long. Not sure how that happened. Rim? Run Parker DT tires. Going back to Michelin's mousse for my upcoming Feb. trip.

    That's what we do. Flats eat up a lot of time.

    Hurricane Rosa

    Always wanted to spend the night in San Francisquito. Also want to spend the night inland from there a bit at Rancho Piedra Blanca.

    Devils Gulch conditions

    and heading to Devils/Mission? Possibly. You never know. But... Carry a folding saw and cut out what you can. Or a mount up a chainsaw.

    Devils Gulch conditions

    access to the trail system legally opens 6-15 which includes clearing. Saw certification doesn't allow exemptions to the trails like other trail systems do (Taneum.) I could be wrong though but that is what I've been told.

    Devils Gulch conditions

    It adds quite a bit and once June 15th hits, you can access the entire Table Mtn trail system and get in 80-90 mile ride easily from multiple staging areas. Table Mtn will need to be logged out though so bring a 18" bar chainsaw. For the past 5 years, I've been up there on opening day to clear trail but this year, I won't make it. My boy HS graduation is on the same day and I believe I should go to that.
