  1. You put it better than I could have. Yes I would like to hook it up on the AC side rather than the DC side. Does anyone know which wire would be the AC?
  2. I researched several threads on running the hot wire for a headlight right from the battery and using and on and off switch. I do not want to hook it up to the battery. There should be a wire in the circuit that is hot only when the bike is running. Which wire is a hot that can be tapped into either coming or going from the regulator? Has anyone hooked up a light this way with the CRF? I done it that way on a TTR 230 and it works great. Thanks for your help.
  3. After posting this bill late last night SB was amended to reduce the fee from $3.00 to $1.00 in a compromised resolution. Thanks to those who fought for the compromised resolution. According the UHP statistics, 30% of SAR flights are OHV related. Still 70% are non OHV related. Accordingly, at $1.00 per OHV, the OHV community will fund approximately 35% of the SAR UHP costs. This appears to be more reasonable and in line with us paying our share for the service. Much better than the original $3.00 which would have left he OHV community funding %105 of the SAR UHP costs. Regardless, we are paying our share will the non-motorized community does not. Maybe one day this can be figured out especially considering for years the OHV community has been paying in the SAR pot anyway.
  4. First I will make the disclosure that this email is not intended in any way to minimize what the Utah Highway Patrol contributes to public safety and search and rescue. Senate Bill 15 flat out stinks. SB 15 was sponsored to place an additional tax on snowmobiles to gain addition funds for grooming trails and the equipment involved. I am not going to debate the issue of grooming. This bill is being sponsored by Ralph Okerlund and Jack Draxler. When the SB 15 went to committee it was modified (hijacked) to provide funding for the Utah Highway Patrol Aero Bureau (helicopter). The bill was modified to take $3.00 from EVERY OHV registration and be given to the Utah Highway Patrol to pay for helicopters, maintenance and search and rescue equipment. Our OHV registration is currently taxed to provide funding for search and rescue. Why should the OHV community pay for the UHP helicopter program? This does not make sense. A majority of the recues involving the UHP chopper are from the hiking community. Very few rescues with OHVs requires the use of the helicopter. OHV rescues are usually medical, which involves Life Flight with medics or involve riders that are stranded. Most OHV rescues are on accessible trails and not in deep and isolated canyons. When does the hiking or mountain biking community pay for their share? The OHV community is being hijacked because we are an easy target. We have to register our recreational equipment for our specific off road hobbies. How do you tax the hikers? Pretty much impossible, so go after us! I have no problem paying the $3.00 if the same tax is applied to every mountain biker, hiker, horse rider, climber, rafter, fisherman and hunter. We should all pay our fair share. This burden should not be placed soley on us. I am tired of this crap! Contact your representative. You can go to the Utah State Legislature page and find your representatives and send them an email voicing your concern.

  5. I have a deposite on a 2012 300 XC-W. My dealer called me last night after talking to his rep. He told me that there is a possibility that he will not get in a 2012 300 XC-W and according to the rep, KTM is not shipping very many of these bikes to the US. Has any one heard of this? Should I get an XC? I know this is a huge debate over the XC and the XC-W and one I am sure will go on and on as long as KTM keeps these fine machines. I currently have an 06 XC-W. I live on the San Rafael Swell and ride tight desert single track on both the desert and mountain. I am concerned that the XC will be too tall for me?

    is the 122.5 you are running a TK jet? What is your elevation? I wondered if I was running rich. It is hard to tell on the account that they come so lean from the factory. Thanks for your response

    Altitude=5,500 feet. Airbox and exhaust mod done PJ: Moved up to 38 MJ: Came with 128, currently running 130. Fuel Screw: 1.5 turns CARB is a TK POS! Bottom end is fine. No bog from idle. When in 4 and 5 gear, in full throttle the big bogs down from mid to full. Two questions: Should I go up to a 132 or 135. Where do I find a TK jet? I called my dealer and they had not idea. All they could get is a 125.

    2012 300 Xc

    Thanks Zilla for answering my questions despite my ignorance in not doing a search for answering my question, especially considering we both live at pretty much the same elevation. Thanks for sharing your jetting specifications, I highly doubt that a search would have revealed the jetting at 6,500 on a 2012 XC (I might be wrong). Thanks for not coming back and telling me to do a search. I sure miss the old days when TT was simple and not as complex as it is today. Back when it was a simple forum of riders trying to figure out the power of the yz400 and 426. I see that you were a member back then as well.

    2012 300 Xc

    I put some money down on a 300 XC. I currently have an xc-w. I ride desert and extremely rough single track. I was hoping that the XC would be my best options for both. Does the XC have the same lugging power ast the XC-W. My W will grunt up anything. Tell me about the different color springs?
