    riding in your state

    Life is consistently changing and the next change in my life will probably land me in either Arizona or New Mexico. I have traveled through both states and prefer the northern part of the states as I enjoys mountains over flat desert. I am about a B level off road rider, not really into racing on tracks. I rather spend my day going from mountain top to mountain top. What/where are the better challenging areas to ride?
  2. Hello Thumper Talk Community, I am reaching out and in need of some advice and help. Some background on the bike: 2011 YZ450F that I purchased used, I am the second owner. The bike was claimed to have 15 hours on it. It does have strong indications of sand dune use as well as the original owner said he had run it out there. It does have stock chain and sprockets but chain was stretched to max setting when purchased. They have been replaced. It seems as though poor maintenance has been practiced by the original owner. Air filter was extremely dirty and sandy, some sand found in the fuel injection and even inside cam cover. Everything has been cleaned thoroughly with new air filter and all new fluids. Bike has started well while cool since I purchased it but seems to be troublesome while warm. Otherwise the bike seems to run perfect while motor is running. The bike jumped timing while at the track recently. It was running fine, had it parked on a stand. When kicking it over to go back out the intake cam jumped about 6 teeth after further investigation. It never ran while missed timed. After inspection of the piston and valves, they seemed to have avoid psychical damage. Took the bike apart and could not find anything that seemed to stand out as a problem. Cam chain did have some slight kinking it, it has been replaced. I believe that is why it jumped timing. I replaced the chain and reset the timing. Valve clearances were inspect but on the tight side of the range after reassembly. Did a compression test. Performed a homemade leak down test. After putting it back together it starts up pretty well while cool, but it a beast to start warm. Hot starting now seems to be worse. I then re-shimmed the valves to put them at the loose range of the spec. Did not seem to help anything. I am not sure what to do and this is my first fuel injected bike. Any advice or help would be appreciated!

  4. My technical question is, are there any cost saving options available for repairing a 2016 KTM 500EXC with a seized engine other than having the KTM dealership tear it down and repair it by replacing all the damaged parts? I was told by the dealership that KTM does not have any complete "crated" engines, so my engine will need to be disassembled and rebuilt at a price of at least $4000. If you are curious how it came to be that a 2016 KTM engine seized up while riding it, well some would probably say this was to be expected given that I had about 160 hours on the bike without an overhaul, but I am curious whether this really is typical. I have searched lots of parts web sites, and I have found a few places selling rebuilt KTM engines, but none advertising them as for a 2016 500EXC. Is it possible and should I consider trying to find an older rebuilt engine to swap out or are there differences between each year or say the XC-W that would require some customization work that is impractical to make it work? I am new to motorcycles having purchased my first bike - a 2016 KTM 500EXC - last July just after my 51st birthday. We instantly bonded, and I rode it almost every day, frequently using it for commuting 90 miles /day then taking to the trails as often as possible. At 160 hrs. I was well past the 120 hr. maintenance that called out for new piston, valves, bearings etc. (est.$3200), when fate caught up with me. I had hoped my luck would last a bit longer because only a month ago it leak tested good, valves were still within spec without a need to re-shim, and I was diligent about the oil changes with the $19 quart full synthetic. While still in half disbelief that I'm no longer mobile on two wheels, I dropped the bike off at the dealership where I purchased from, and am waiting for the call back with the ransom demand to pay.
  5. My husband's 2012 Husqvarna Te310 (picture in profile) was stolen from outside our apartment overnight. We moved to Surprise, AZ from NY less than a month ago. The picture is the last one we have of it and it's in NY. We just had the registration and plate changed to AZ a few days ago. I'm trying all avenues to try to recover it. Does anyone have any ideas as to what else to do besides passing the word around? Anything would be greatly appreciated. It's absolutely devastating!
  6. Hello everyone, my first post. I bought a 2002 DRZ400 S for $850 that ran very loudly and clearly with something wrong. The bike had 9k miles on the clock, so I hoped it wouldn't be something so catastrophic that the entire engine needed replacement. I've pulled of the head and cylinder. Here's what I've found. The intake cam was dry and looked like burnt oil. The intake cam journals were all eaten up. The exhaust cam and journals look good though, which seems strange to me if the head was starved of oil. Maybe just an oil channel for the intake cam was blocked? Bottom of the head: Cylinder and piston: There was side-to-side play but no up and down on the rod: Frame oil screen, I think that's case sealant gunked up on it? Here's the link to the full album on imgur: http://imgur.com/a/cl1n1 So what can be used, and what needs to be replaced? What went wrong in the first place? I want to get this back to running as inexpensively as is reasonable. Obviously the head needs to go. Can the cylinder be reused? I wiped it out with WD40 and a paper towel, but didn't have anything to really scrub with. There isn't any lip that I could feel where the piston stops at the top of the cylinder. How about the piston? Could it be reused with new rings?

  8. Share your stories.. I'll go first. This happened yesterday. So yesterday I was riding with some quads. We stopped and I checked my gas. I had very little but made the worst decision to keep riding anyway. We went further and further out until I eventually peeled off and decided to start heading back. About 30 seconds after that I ran out of gas. There were houses about a mile back from where we came from, so I pushed my bike that way. There were four houses. All with every long and hilly driveways. First house, nobody in it, second house no 2 stroke gas, 3rd house looked very sketchy, fat guy had no gas. The very last house I went to had 2 German shepherds that were barking like they were about to eat me alive until I started petting them. I asked the old lady," hello, I'm sorry to ask but do you have any 2 stroke gas?" "I'll ask my husband" she said with a smile on her face. She went and got him, and he said he might have gas. Luckily, he did. He took me on his gator and we went to my bike. I put half of the gas can in there, and we said our goodbyes and I went home. I grabbed 5 bucks and took it back to them and they refused it, but I made them take it and thanked them. Without them I wouldn't have made it home. Now share yours

    Arizona Any DS riders in Surprise?

    Usually ride fridays and saturdays. Mostly off road. Lotsa sand, rock and single track. Can stay nice or get ugly.
  10. I keep hearing that there is some decent single track up in Marana. It's close by my place (oro valley). I cant seem to find anything online. Just wondering if anyone had some detailed directions (road names etc) to get there and a good place to stage from as well. Everyone I ask here in town tells me "oh, just go up to marana and head west and then find a place to park." I'm newer here to tucson so that doesn't help me much. I'm pretty anal about staying on legal land and following all the rules so I don't want to get myself into trouble with any law enforcement or rangers by mistake. I finally have my bike plated and have OHV decal, and have spark arrestor; not street legal though, nor do I want it to be. Is that all I need to ride up around there? Or is any of it state trust land? thanks for your help. I'd also like to ride with some other people if interested. I know there are some clubs I could join, but don't really have the time to devote to that just right now. I wouldn't be opposed to hanging around and riding with some though. Racing next weekend, but am free pretty much any weekend other than race days. If you don't feel like posting detailed directions to good single track feel free to PM me. Oh, and 5th or 6th gear pinned in the desert scares the crap out of me so I'd like to stay away from that if possible. -matt-
  11. Hi all, haven't posted on here for a while. We live in Peoria and have never ridden in the Flagstaff area but would like to now that it is getting hot here.

    Arizona Riding Az

    Due to recent healthcare changes I am considering moving to Az. I have family out there between Phx and Flag. I currently ride in Co and would be bringing my plated Beta and RMX with me. Curious about ohv riding amount and possible hare hound series. Thanks
  14. The wife and I would like to find a place to stay (cabin or hotel or...) around flagstaff for the 4th of July. I thought I remember a post a while back that there might be some cabins and riding around Mormon lake. Overall it would be kind of cool to be able to ride from where we stay. Being a short weekend bringing the trailer is out. Any info / help suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Arizona Thought you all should know

    I moved to Phoenix area from Denver about 3 years ago. Recently i came back into contact with a old friend who owned RPM Motor Works in Colorado. He has recently re located to the Phoenix area and is trying to build his business down here. He is great at repairs and is very good in explaining exactly what is wrong and what it will take to fix it. He also will show you how to do the repairs yourself if you would like (he showed me how to do fork seals and how to adjust valves). Guy is a true honest mechanic with a passion for cycles and power sports and has never been after the money and is more like a friend that can fix anything. (gives free advise, diagnosis, never to busy to chat). I hope its OK i post this? His website is currently down to re-do some stuff from the move but he said you can find his contact info on craigslist! I just got my 2011 KX250F back from him as it was dew for a new top end and valves, he hasn't changed a bit in the way he does business and deserves the exposure!

    Arizona My fellow AZ riders.

    Hello Arizona. Feels good to say that, since I have been mired in Texas working for the last six months. I get to come home briefly in December though. Anyway, I was hoping I could get some feedback for my little site: www.dirtaddict.wordpress.com. i just started it, and would love comments and suggestions. Also, if any of you have a somewhat customized machine, I would love to do a feature on it. Similar or different to the one I did on my old Suzuki 250(its on my site.) Thanks for any input. And if you do have a sweet bike with good photos, you can send them and info about it and what races you run to: jjburch2@gmail.com Thanks Joshua Burch.
  23. As promised when the cooler temps arrived we would return to Sunday MX practice. It looks like its time for good weather from here on out. (Until it starts raining) We will be open for MX pratice every Wed., Sat. and Sunday for the rest of winter and spring. We will return to a limited schedule next summer. More info at www.ETMotopark.com .
