    Why no EFI for dirtbikes

    Dougie, Don't forget about the Cannondales. They are fuel injected and pretty trick in my opinion despite what the magazines have said.

    Jetting Specs for Phx, AZ?

    I run YZ timing with an EKP needle (4th clip) 168 main and 48 pilot 1.25 turns out. With my obnoxious Sierra Club unfriendly exhaust, this combo rips. Definitely go with YZ timing for the desert. Brad

    Tall Wr foam vs YZ seat tank combo

    I've got the guts tall foam with the WR tank and I've also got the YZ seat/tank combo. I prefer the extra tank capacity and softer seat with the WR setup over the YZ combo. The taller foam flattens out the seat considerably. The ergo's of the YZ setup is still better for mx, but for desert and dual sport the stock WR tank and tall seat is nice.

    Who Makes the Best/Tallest Foam?

    Give Guts a try. I have the WR seat tall foam and it is way taller than stock (Makes it almost flat). Seems like I remember somebody selling their Guts tall YZ foam because they thought it was too tall.

    HP on a WR426?

    I think 54 hp is a little overly optimistic. If you look at dyno runs from all the mags (not that they're accurate either), with any exhaust sytem the YZ426 doesn't ever make above 50, and I've seen as low as 45 for the YZ 426. There's no reason to think a WR426 will be any better, unless your talking running a higher compression piston, possibly big valves, and race gas. I also doubt an 8 hp difference between a 400 and 426. I think if you rode a well jetted 400 and then jumped on a 426, the difference would almost undetectable.

    Enviornmental Pressure

    The problem in the U.S. is the same as every dominant civilization before us. When a country becomes so wealthy that simple needs such as food, clothing and shelter are no longer a problem, then people start spending energy and money worying about things that in the grand list of priorities are at the bottom, like saving the wilderness and welcoming homosexuals into society. This lack of focus on what's truly important will eventually be the downfall of our great nation, as it has been with every other great civilization on earth. People will rationalize their desires to save the planet by telling themselves that they are preserving the world for their children, but what they are really doing is dooming future generations to starvation and domination by a people whose priorities are oriented toward survival (China?). For those who thing this is a far fetched view of the U.S., I'd recommend you visit a few other locations on the planet. You'll soon see that what the U.S. has to offer is second to none, and not worth losing over a few trees or spotted owls. Sorry for the rant, but I just spent some time in the Balkans. The people there are currently not too concerned with the greenhouse effect. They spend their time worrying about things like where to live and having their legs blown off when they walk through the woods.

    Taffy, we are whiners aren't we

    Kevin, Flap eh... I havn't heard that one! My only experience with the Navy was a few days on a carrier in the Persion Gulf. It was more of an Air Force appreciation tour than anything, but believe me I have a whole new respect for squids since then. We were billeted in what were considered "good" quarters (awake all night from the cat shots). I can't even imagine the living conditions on a sub. Not sure if you've been to NSA Naples but that's where I'm staying now. I don't know how long it's been since you got out, but you'd be amazed at the quality of the facilities here. Oustanding even by my (Air Force) standards. I heard that Naples used to be really bad so its good to see that somebody is willing to make improvements. Taffy, We can only hope that the proper assistance will be available to help bail those farmers out who've lost their herds. My prayers go out to them and their families. Sorry to ramble but I'm seriously bored over here...
  11. Taffy, I'm sure yor tired of us Americans whining about our problems (noise, land closures, etc) when it looks like those of you in the UK are basically done riding until the Foot & Mouth problem gets sorted out. Sorry to here about the off roading ban, and I hope you can maintain your sanity until the ban is lifted. I do sort of feel your pain though, I'm without my bike in Italy for the next couple of months and this forum is my only connection with my favorite hobby. On the plus side though, I'm working side by side with my RAF counterparts here and have been attempting to school them on proper English (unsuccessful so far though). Brad

    How Loud is Loud?

    Funny most of the debate going on here lies in the heart of America's biggest problem...Sunny CA. Those of us who live or have lived in other states probably aren't experiencing the pressure you're feeling over there. Citizen Kane and several others hit the nail on the head, its NOT ABOUT THE NOISE, its about the perception of the sport. In the AZ desert, dirt bikes have always been, and hopefully always will be perceived as part of the desert environment. Kind of like shooting guns in the desert (sorry to open up that can of worms). Nobody bitches about the noise because they expect to hear it. I understand your concern for having places to ride and trying to appease the enemy, but once you concede your loud pipe, you might as well bolt on the catalytic converter, then street tires (knobby's damage the ecosystem thriving in the topsoil you know) and shortly thereafter you can park your bike and explain to your grandkids how back in the good old days honest citizens could actually ride these beasts in the dirt. Keep up the fight gents, but If I were you, I'd ditch California altogether before I'd give up my rights to ride. Brad

    oil colour??

    You should ask Clark about this. Quite a while back, I remember he talked about one of the frame oil lines on his bike was plugged with weld (from the factory). I'm not sure which line it was or how it affected his bike, but it may cause something like what your experiencing (oil not making it from the frame to the motor). Brad

    DOT Legal Knobbies

    I've had great luck with the Dunlop 606. I think there's supposed to be a version for the front soon if there isn't already. Brad

    WR withdrawal

    Dudes, I'm stuck in Italy for the next 2+ months without my bike and its killing me. I've only been here for three weeks, and I'm already dying over here. Somebody needs to post some good riding stories...where's Mitchy when you need him! Brad
