    CO Jetting

    I'm not sure for your 450, but a good starting point is to go leaner by one jet size for every 2000 ft above sea lvl. When I brought my R6 up from AR to Colorado Springs, I went from a 148 main to a 144 and left the needles, and pilots alone.
  2. Thanks for getting them up.

    is ppir or pueblo ridable today?

    I would love to, but I have to change the rear tire on my bike and prep it for my trip to Grand Junction, Moab, and Green River this weekend.
  4. I'm not positive for this series, but yes you could. You can race in any category that you fit in. For ex: I have a 450, and I'm over 30. So I could race in either the Open, 4-Stroke, or Vet 30+ class.
  5. I have classes on Tuesday and Wednesday in the evening and all day Thursday. Then I'm leaving for Grand Junction, Green River and Moab Thursday night and will be back on Tuesday . So I guess the best time to get together is on Monday or Wednesday.

    He would be fine there. There is a mini bike track, that was created/used last year for the kids to race on.
  7. I might be interested. What class? I think that I'm going to ride the 30+ class.
  8. I'm leaving from Colorado Springs and might have some room in the covered trailer for 1 or 2 bikes. I have a buddy that is thinking of going also.

    CO's new noise law for OHV's...

    First, I'm not arguing for or against the sound limit. I was just stating that it was going to be hard for some bikes to pass, and that it could get expensive for some owners and that I was one of them. My personal thoughts on the matter are, I believe that we need to have quieter bikes. This would take away arguments against all of us that ride. I also feel that we need to put pressure on the manufactures of bikes and exhaust to complete this. I am in favor of having the requirement, but I don't think that it is right to enforce or create a law that requires all bikes regardless of when they were made to comply with the new sound limit. It could get expensive for some owners to bring their bikes in compliance by having to replace the stock system. I do not think that most people want to spend $300+ on a new exhaust system for a bike that they just bought that will not pass the new sound standard. This will have more people braking the law and giving the leaf lickers more fuel to argue against us. Furthermore Yes, I was aware that when I bolted up the 4.1 system to the bike it would be louder, or in my case quieter then the factory system. The stock system on most bikes are designed to meet the 99 db limit. My KTM with the stock system measured 104db. I installed the 4.1 system to bring the bike closer to compliance and to have the option to install the 96db insert. I also have two pit bikes both have the stock exhaust system installed. neither of these bikes will pass the sound limit. one measured 102db and the other at 100db. For me to bring the bikes in compliance I have to purchase new exhaust systems. Now I'm aware of the cost involved and have agreed to accept it because I love to ride. Lastly, As for the AMA and the manufacturers, The sound limit has been in the AMA rule books for awhile. The AMA started out enforcing 99db, they ran the 99db sound limit for two years, and stated that they were going to reduce it to the 96db limit with a larger goal of even lower db's. This was a complaint with some manufacturers and was reported in Dirt Bike magazine and MXA. Both magizanes have been talking about this for the last few years. Early this year when the AMA revised the sound limit rule, they adopted the FIM standard. When this rule was revised some of the current models no longer meet the sound requirement. Excuse me for using the wrong db limit in my other posts. It is 94db under the FIM standard not 96db. Here are some articles from both MXA and Dirt Bike on the rule. Explaining how the new 94db rule is not really 94db's: http://www.motocrossactionmag.com/ME2/dirmod.asp?sid=&nm=&type=news&mod=News&mid=9A02E3B96F2A415ABC72CB5F516B4C10&tier=3&nid=9EF765ECDF694E388A8411AC8D44005E Takes about the new rule: http://www.dirtbikemagazine.com/ME2/dirmod.asp?sid=&nm=&type=news&mod=News&mid=9A02E3B96F2A415ABC72CB5F516B4C10&tier=3&nid=E0715CE3B41E430E81FD2BE768F312E1 Stock bikes and the new rule: http://www.motocrossactionmag.com/ME2/dirmod.asp?sid=&nm=&type=news&mod=News&mid=9A02E3B96F2A415ABC72CB5F516B4C10&tier=3&nid=6527CC0871734E5297D3CA746D102E75

    CO's new noise law for OHV's...

    Read Dirt Bike magazine. Under the AMA rules which just adopted the FIM rules, you have to meet 96db's at different rpm's for 250's and 450's. They will round down the db's. (IE: if the bike measures 96.9db it will = 96db and be legal.) Most of the new bikes and prior year bikes were set up to meet the 99db level that was used until this year. This rule does not apply to local racing organizations that are NOT hosting an AMA event. Which is most likely why your bike(s) passed. I have a KTM 450 XC-W w/ a FMF Factory 4.1 system. I also race and the bike will pass the sound check for the Webe Series, Arkansas Harescramble Series, etc... with out my 96db insert. As long as they are local and do not use the AMA, WORCS, etc... If I go to race in the WORCS, OMA, GNCC, the bike will not pass the sound check and I have to install the 96db insert into the exhaust, to bring down the sound level.

    Trailer thoughts

    I have two different trailers, a 6x12 Covered Utility and a 3 rail trailer. If you are looking to haul 4 full size bikes like Harleys or cruiser type bikes then a 6x12 will not work. It will barely hold 4 dirt bikes. I used my 6x12 to pull a sport bike, cruiser, and dirt bike from Alaska to Arkansas. It was completely full with those three and I had to stack the gear under and in between the bikes. I would recommend at least 7x14 if your going to be hauling 4 big bikes. Look for something with a V-nose, to help with aerodynamics.

    The 96db level is going to be hard meet on most of the new bikes and a lot of the older bikes. They will not pass the AMA's 96db rule now. I know that none of my bikes will pass.

    $900 later......Gators progress

    :lol: Not a problem gator!! I'm glad I could help you out. Just let me know when you are ready to go riding!! I'll tell you though, as far off as the cams were, I was just glad that the piston did not strike a valve and bend it. That was my worst fear. Also you left part of your throttle tube at my house. Just let me know, and I'll swing by and drop it off, our you can come and pick it up. Well at least we got you closer to riding!!
