  1. Well said. I live and ride in these areas and can say, unequivocally, that I've never had a pleasant encounter with BLM. Even when accompanied by Federal officers of other agencies the BLM people are difficult to deal with and are considered bottom of the barrel officers from an agency that should have been stood down years ago. Having said that, I believe we should take pause and find out all the information before condemning these officers. The case seems very odd to me from I've read and for sure there are two sides to every story. Thankfully nobody was killed. There are some SUPER BAD ACTORS in these parts even at night. They need full blown military response not just some Barny Fife's with badges. BLM is outmanned, out gunned, and out smarted.
  2. That Sherco is a great looking and obviously great performing machine. I like them all...KTM/Husqvarna, Beta, GasGas.....all of the 2-strokes. Good to see Sherco on the top box with a GREAT rider.
    Courtesy of Jeff Slavens Racing. Included in package is everything needed to install the Lectron and a note asking for you to not do anything to it as it is pre-tuned by Slavens. Simple install and absolutely "plug-n-play". Bike runs perfect all times regardless of temperature or elevation. It self adjusts! No spooge and great fuel economy. Better than FI.
  3. Is there any data to support that statement?
  4. Is there any damage to your engine? Did any dust get by the filter that you can see or feel? You bike is likely just fine no harm no foul. My 0.02$
  5. That's totally fixable. Might be a chore to find someone but it can be done IMHO. I come from the era when everything broke and was junk and had to be welded, braced, triced, bolted, drill, screwed, glued, bubble gum and bailing wired.......
  6. FI/TPI is not the future. Lectron is the future for off road bikes both 2 and 4 stroke. Seriously.
  7. That was some great racing! Both Roczen and Anderson were over their heads and it was a case of which rider would make the least costly mistakes. Anderson prevailed in this case despite Roczen's valiant efforts. No need to think anything bad of either of these racers who gave it their all. Great racing plain and simple. No shame anywhere, no fakery either IMHO
  8. Looks like a great time. I'm in Yuma so maybe it's a little farther away from me than ACP but I'm game to get there and try it out. I like Vet tracks just for some conditioning and seat time.
  9. Great conversation. Newer is better IMHO.
  10. I'll run 50/50 Premium/AV Gas or Sunoco 112 leaded sometimes in the Summer months or for racing in high ambient temps or certain other types of rides. Engines run cooler but I don't think power is any better. I love the smell of race gas in the morning especially when mixed with castor oil. Reminds me of my youth.
    Most excellent very tunable chassis and engine. Truly a "do it all" machine.

  12. IMHO I would put that back together and run it for 5 hours. If it seizes you can take it in to your dealer and have them fix it. If it doesn't put on the high compression head and run it another 80 hours. That looks like a fresh assembly to me. The "defects" will likely be gone after it's completely broken in and that takes about 5 hours.
  13. I have a 2018 TX 300 with 7 hours on it. I've not touched the carburetor and for me not to reflexively fiddle with these is nothing short of miraculous. The bike runs outstanding at sea level open desert with temps in the 70's. I might have to lean it out a little when the temps are back closer to triple digits. I would give the factory jetting an A+ and I'm not inclined to mess with it at all right now. That's not to say that at tear down a new reed cage, high compression head, etc. might happen BUT there is no need to immediately screw-up this fine running machine I put a 5.4 spring on it and set the clickers to "standard" front and rear. I run 9.4 bar in the air fork and race sag at 105ish. It has an FMF Turbinecore 2.1, TMD skid plate, CV4 radiator cap, and Bridgestone UHD tubes front and rear. Stock gearing is 13/50 and works well for all but the fastest two track. It'll do over 80 MPH. If I were going to race this in open desert or take it to Baja I would gear it 14/48 and put a stabilizer on it. Don't believe all the anti-Mikuni BS. One thing for sure is that it is picky about ratio so 60:1 is a must. It will run very good on pump gas too.
