    I was headed home from Crescent Bar making my way to I-90 from Quincy on highway 281. About a half a mile from I-90 on the right I got a quick look of a track with a dozen or so bikes riding around and at least that many cars/trucks parked there. From the brief glance I saw, it looked like it might be public. I've been that route dozens of times and never noticed it before. Anybody know anything ???

    Les at LT-Racing..... What I really dig about LT is, he's the only guy that works on your stuff. From start to finish, it's all him. If you have a question on anything, he has the answer. Nicest guy in the business too..... And his results speak to themselves!

    I do, Thanks to Coyote Offroad. I know there are cheaper routes to a plate, but in my case, my very busy work schedule is leaving little for for research, let alone fab time. I decided to give a small local business a shot. Mike and Jerod were great to work with, and very well versed in plating a dirtbike. I dropped my bike off, we went over a game plan, and just over a week later.......Presto! The wiring and componets were installed and everything thing was up tight and right, very sano! I'm stoked!
  4. The "X" never came with a keyed ignition. Some guys are retrofitting them while doing a dual sport conversion in order to make their bike compliant to certain states street legal laws. Some X owners take the battery out to save wieght, while others never replace it when it wears out 'cuz they are a little spendy. I would throw a battery in and try it. Remember, there's a safety switch in the clutch lever, it must be pulled in to engage the starter. If you're like me, you will embrace the "magic button" and never go back to a kick-only bike (willingly) It's like my Rekluse - you'll have to pry it from my cold dead fingers!
  5. I did some research on the lowering links, and the consensus was that you're going to be far better off in the long run if you're more than a casual rider to get your bike lowered professionally. The links mess with suspension geometery (dropping the rear will effect the front end) and spring rates. If I had to run one, I would definately do the .8" link and shave the seat foam to gain a little more. You'll probably have to crank up the shock preload to get your sags right.
  6. This is tragic! Les is one of the nicest guys in the m/c community. I looked forward to the hour drive to his shop to drop my suspension off just to bs with the guy for a while. My thoughts and prayers are with Les and his family for a speedy recovery.

    I was there Thursday on a shake-down run, had the Sand Hill Pit to myself. I ventured about 4 miles in each direction. the above quote is 100% accurate.

    Third that - I talked with an one of the organizers, He said it poured Friday night. That made for great conditions today under partly cloudy skies. Not a dust cloud in sight. Great warm up for Odessa. Nice job Fringe.
  9. I've been bummed since Rooster shut it's doors 'cuz they had a great product. I had them on my first X. I know the Flatlands are good (friend had 'em) and I've read the testimonies on Devol (even though they don't look very stout) I finially bit the bullet and ordered these from Mohard. I hope they fit as good as they look, the quality is outstanding!
  10. Do an advanced search for "front brake bleeding" in the CRF forum of your choice (try the 250-450R too). It's a popular topic and yields alot of good ideas.

    Couldn't agree more (except my soil sample was a bark sample) almost everyone was great about pulling over or letting people around when they realized someone was behind them, quads included (except one d-head on a quad that I idled behind for a mile and when the trail opened up enough to pass he drag raced me to the corner) Great event. The camping area is really nice! Till next year- thanks PSER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=979423 The only time my radiators "steam" is when I start it after I wash it. Maybe you have some residual water in the rad fins.
  14. I think you'll have better luck posting this in the suspension forum.
  15. I use the Flex-a-jet needle. It's the only one that you can use sitting on your bike, it's easy and works great. The only down side I have heard of but never experienced and I've had 2 is that they can can become stuck. If you're concerned about it, I would either use a touch of anti-seize or give it a twist back and forth every few months.
