  1. http://bmmspark.com/ This is a great place to ride I went a month ago and have been every weekend since they have a ton of trails of all difficulties well marked I hardly see any other groups of riders when I am on the trails once I am out on the trails it is like it is my own personal trail system they have a nice parking area that you can camp at if you want they have a food wagon, restrooms and showers as well as a small selection of gear and parts that are surprisingly well priced they are friendly and as helpful as can be it is one of those places where you feel like one of the gang from the moment your there in case you can not tell I am hook on the place it does not hurt that it is only 15 miles from my house to. you can find me there most every weekend PM me we can hit a few trails.
  2. Well, with less than a month until I'm going away for college, I want to get as much riding in as I can. That being said, I am kinda new to the area and I don't have a single friend that rides. If anyone wants to meet up and go riding, definitely let me know. I've been to brushy mountain once and loved it there and I'd like to get up to elkhorn lake and down to uwharrie sometime. During the week would be the best time for me, and I have access to quite a bit of land in stokes county but the trails need some work before they will be rideable. Anyways, I'd just like to meet some people to go and ride some trails with.
  3. Hello all, There's been a lot of talk about how to register a dirt bike in states that don't allow it. I just moved to North Carolina and for the first time in my life might be able to afford a bike. I've been dreaming about an XR650R for a long time, but they're not cheap. Plated bikes seem to be more expensive too. So here's my question, has anyone tried to plate a dirt bike by adding all the necessary features and having it inspected as a custom bike? Anyone know of another way I can plate an xr650 in NC? Thanks
  4. Anybody riding the Fayetteville area? Just got a Wr250x and looking for some people to hit some trails with.
  5. Budget FCR swap for DRZ400, a new approach For those owning a DRZ power gains from an FCR swap may seem very attractive, until you consider the cost. The Keihin FCR MX carbs are expensive and used swap kits rarely sell for less than $450 on eBay. Prices for the Thumper talk kit and others are rising as Keihin has had recent price hikes. I talked to Mike at the Power Barn in early October, when I began my search, and he was out of 39mm FCRs. He told me once they were back, prices would be about 35% higher because “Keihin US had a massive price hike earlier this year”. Limited potential of the Mikuni CV36 means that if you want more power from your DRZ, and FCR is a must. If you have already made the 3x3 air box mod this and exhaust are the next logical step for your DRZ. For those looking for power there is another way to solve the problem without spending so much money. Two weeks ago I purchased a Keihin FCR MX version 39mm off eBay for $125. FCR’s without the removable intake are common on 4 stroke racing four-wheelers and dirt bikes. FCRs without the removable intake bell are identical internally to those with the removable intake bell. These can be obtained cheaper than those with the removable bell, hence the reason I was able to get mine for $125 instead of $500+. I did a lot of hunting to get one at this price, but they sell for $200-300 regularly. As an engineer by trade I was able to design an aluminum adapter to make this happen. For those on a budget this is a great option. If anyone wants an adapter to test on their bike, message me and we can work something out. Keihin FCR Basics So that you understand more about Keihin carbs here are a few details. Ø There are 3 body styles to the Keihin FCR: 1. Keihin Slant FCR 2. Keihin MX FCR with removable air boot. This is most commonly adapted to the DRZ400. The reference “air boot” is located on the air box side of the carb. 3. Keihin MX FCR without removable air boot. Not commonly used on DRZ400 but the topic of this discussion. Notice there is no bolt on plastic adapter on the air box side of the carb. Ø These body styles can have 3 option packages. 1. Choke 2. Choke and hot start 3. Choke, hot start, and throttle position sensor (TPS) Ø When trying to find the appropriate FCR you need to inspect for port size. When you hear about 37, 38, 39 or 41mm carbs the referenced measurement is the throat size as measured from the position of the flat slide. See the picture below, this is a 39mm carb. 39mm and 41mm carbs are most commonly adapted to the DRZ. The smaller the bore the more “torquey” the motor will be. Some have used 37 or 38mm carbs and had success. Any perform better than the stock Mikumi. Ø From my research 39mm carbs were available from the factory on some of these models: o 2003-2007 YZ450F o 2000-2009 KTM 525 XC four wheeler o KTM RFS 4 stroke motorcycles 450 and 525 o CRF450X Always ask your seller to take the appropriate measurement. Good reputable sellers will be happy to take your money, for the 5 minutes it takes to check their carb. What you need for an affordable FCR swap Now onto my FCR project. To adapt a FCR with non-removable air boot you need: Item #5, the FCR adapter, is the key component. This lets you take your carburetor without the removable air boot and make it the same overall length of the FCR everyone else uses. The adapter’s air box size matches that of the stock Mikuni carb and attaches well to the air box. On the carburetor side the adapter is slightly oversized (~.007”) for a good fit. I recommend using 3M weather-strip adhesive or RTV silicon to seal the junction. Keihn castings vary slightly and no two carbs measure the exact same, making this necessary. As a side note, I made one of these also from ABS plastic which I actually prefer. Being weaker than aluminum, ABS plastic adapters are a press on fit and you are ready to go (no sealer needed). Thanks to the TT community for jetting suggestions. My DRZ with stock exhaust is running the following jetting configuration. The fit of my carb with this adapter was nearly identical to the last FCR I installed on a friend’s DRZ. Below are more pictures. Please enjoy and share your thoughts. Here is one ABS adapter.
  6. I have always understood that if you go to title a bike in NC with a MSO that doesnt have "off-road use only" you should be good to go. This gave me a pretty good feeling on buying a new KTM and getting it plated, even if I had to go through the hassle of bringing it up to street legal. However I called and spoke to a KTM dealer today and he told me that the new 2017 bikes are coded so that that none of the off road models are in the database to register, meaning it would be impossible in NC to do. Is this the case? Or is this merely the dealer not knowing what they are talking about.
  7. I've got a DRZ that I can't get running and I'm looking for someone who would be willing to let me swap over some parts. Namely ignition stuff. CDI, coil, spark plug wire. Maybe try swapping the carb too. Here's my "need help" thread in the DRZ section if you want to get an idea of what is going on.
  8. Just wondering if anyone was going to ride Brown this weekend?
  9. I need a new chest/back protector and have always worn the cheaper fox roost guards. Looking at getting something with a little bit more protection though especially for my lower back and kidney area. I did try one of those full upper body jackets that had all the pads built into it a few years ago, but I couldn't handle wearing that thing. It was uncomfortable, extremely hot, and rode up too high to give correct protection. I've looked at the TLD CB5955 chest protector and the Alpinestars A-8. What do you guys recommend for off road single track riding?
  10. Hello dirt bike thumpers & smokers! I am curious as who has ridden the new ST on the Enduro trail and what your opinion is? Difficult ST or etc? Joe Dirt
  11. My nephew lives in Columbia (South Carolina). We're looking for a destination to ride with some mountain views. Okay if we have to drive up to three hours, or possibly more. We're both originally from California, and I'm jealous of all the spectacular hills in the Northern Cali photos. Thanks!
  12. I currently ride a 1998 cr250r. I love this bike, it is strong and fun. But! I found a 2007 rmz 250 that I can get at an awesome price. Question is " At 200lb (winter weight LOL) Would the rmz be enough bike for me? My cr screams, and I love the power. But in reality I love hre scramble and woods riding more than tracks. And I was told the lighter (my bike dry weight is 213lbs,) would be as fun in the woods and I wouldnt miss the power as much as I fear. I love that my bike bolts off and power wheelies any time or gear I want. But A tractor bike would be good for these twisty hill climbs I ride here at home. I do ride tracks too! but I love the woods better. Please let me know your input. And if any one is interested I have a 98 cr250 for sell.
  13. I'm just getting back into riding after a looooong absence.I have been riding Windrock(DH bicycle), but never on a moto there.I may need to get the feel of my moto first before I jump on WR's trails. Any noobs around Asheville,NC. ? Looking at Enoree for a first time out next weekend, as usual everything is 2 hours away.
  14. Does anyone know if Firelane MX in Bunnlevel, NC is still open? I live near Lillington and looking for somewhere new to ride but haven't seen any updates on it since 2011.
  15. Any trails near Raleigh NORTH Carolina ...

  18. Anyone up for a dual sport or mortars ride in the Boone area on Monday 9/17? Rain or shine this week. This is the third time I've trekked to get some kind of ride going on up that way but with. I luck yet
  19. Hey you wankers, you should have made this trip instead of Brown Jug. I can't believe more folks don't run this race, forty couple rows is all that was there. I have ran it 3 out of the past 4 years and it has been one of the best tracks that I have ran. I ran well, took a couple wrong turns which cost me a few minutes, finished 11 out of 20 or so in the nonmember class. If I had paid for a membership and ran my class, I would of gotten my first #1 plaque. dern it. It was pouring rain when I got up that morning, and raining all over right up to the area that the race was being held. Looked like it was dry, or received light rain, and it hadn't rained all week. Needless to say the bike gods were looking out for us Sunday. Temps were much cooler than a couple weeks ago in SC, low to mid 60's throughout the day with no sun. The camera doesn't really show it, but it was pretty dark in some of the woods sections. I forgot to delete some older vids, so I didn't get the last 2 sections..argh. I did end up having to run without goggles for most of this section, and the 2nd due to a heavy, misty fog that covered the higher elevations. I didn't like doing it, but riding with them meant crashing, and stopping would take too long. LOL I forgot to wipe the lens at the start, and yes, I realize I spelled lens wrong. If you don't want to watch that part, I finally wiped it off about 16 mins in or so. haha Here are a couple pics along with the video. Enjoy the video, I had a ball and I hope it shows in the vid. I posted the video uncut for some that might want to watch the entire loop.
  20. Brushy Mountain will be CLOSED this Sunday 9/23/12 to host the NCHSA Race. We will be OPEN 9 til 5 on Friday and 9 til 3PM on Saturday. The price to ride this Friday or Saturday will only be $15.00 per rider. The ENTIRE C-Section will be closed for riding. Hope we see you.
  21. Looking into maybe making a trip of the south east on my spring break, provided I can get some of my old R/C stuff sold along with some other stuff. Right now this is what I've got: A is my home, B is Mx Barn in TN, C is Palmetto mx, D is Hog heaven, and E is cresswell. I'd like to add monster mountain in Al, but it adds 500 miles, so I'd rather find something around the circle I've got. Cresswell is kind of optional also as it's out of the way. Another problem is I don't know how many of these tracks would be open through the week. I know Mx Barn is 24/7 365 so no worries there, from facebook Hog Heaven is open more often than not unless they're doing track work. Not sure about the rest. Many thanks in advance.
  22. Hog Heaven MX - 5760 Percy Strickland Rd, Godwin, NC
