  1. 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.
  2. 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.

    Charlotte, NC area riders?

    Anyone around the Charlotte region? Any good trails or shops to recommend? Would be helpful to find a network of riders down here. I'm new to dirt bikes but have always been interested in trail riding and learning to work on them Hope there's a few out there
  4. Hellooo, I am moving from Washington state to Duncan, SC. Since my moto family is here, I was wondering if anyone knew where to ride, and who to ride with? Its never good to ride alone, so I am trying to get to know people on here so when I go down there I have some awesome people to ride with! I have been riding for 15 years, and currently ride an 09 RMZ 250 Suzuki and grew up riding woods. I love anything from goat trails to single track switch backs up the side of a mountain. If you have any info please let me know, I'll be moved down there by June 21st. Thanks!
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. This bike was stolen of my truck at the Best Western Plus in Goldsboro, NC on 11/16/2014 - Be aware if this bike is offered to you the VIN # JH2ME03351M301292 is now on police records as stolen! I didn't know it any better and went right into the town of thieves - Goldsboro, NC! (sorry for the ones of you who live there) Was riding at Busco Beach and stayed in town before going home. Check here: http://www.neighborhoodscout.com/nc/goldsboro/crime/- if you park you truck, trailer, bike in Goldsboro your chances are 1 out of 16 it will be part of a property crime. What gets me is that obviously all locals know about the situation and no one at all gives you a hint till you become a victim and then is seems to open a huge flow of informations what all happens around Busco Beach! Best of all, I got already a pic of the stolen bike with the hint its offered for $500 supposedly in Mount Olive, NC - but no further details.

    NorthCarolina Brown Mountain opening weekend

    Who's going? I'm planning on going with a few buddies on Thursday. Let me know if anyone will be there thursday. Look for a kx250 ktm 300 and crf450. Have to work all weekend so I won't be able to fight the crowd.
  11. How many of you guys would like to have an enduro course/single track riding park only? To keep it simple and short, I know a guy that has a little over 200 acres and he is going to open up his trails to the public. There are already bathrooms, showers, power, and open camping. It even has a bar/grill on the land. Once open to dirt bikes, we have been discussing ways to bring riders back often and one idea is to cater to enduro/single track riders in center areas. It is near Semora, NC. (near Hyco Lake). The thought is there are a few MX tracks in the area, but no enduro course/tracks around (that I know of). So, what are your thoughts. If you could build a riding park of your own, what would you include. What are the key attraction that makes you travel to a riding location now? This is at the starting stage, so all ideas/thoughts will be very helpful (post pics, video too). All comments are good comments! Basically, the plan is to build a riding park "for the people" so they want to keep coming back. There is plenty of open land (recently timbered) where a course can easily be created. There are also a couple streams that run through his land and the trees along the streams have not been touched. If you want, you can PM me and I will give you my phone number if anyone wanted to talk too.
  12. Looking for someone around the triad area who enjoys riding trails. Recently got back into riding and would like to have someone that would want to tag along to trial ride at brushy,brown caw and anywhere else with trails.

  17. Worked on a few miles of new virgin trail today for the race since it was raining and the ground is shot so we couldn't open for practice. Race is going to be sick! Don't worry boyz there will be easy routs around all the fun stuff. If you come out to the next couple practices on Sunday you may get to check out a couple of the new spots, maybe. Check it out at www.carolinapowersports.net
  18. So this Christmas, my wife went all out. She gave me WAY more stuff than she should have. One thing she gave me was a pair of Answer "Mode" convertible enduro pants. I've been wanting a pair and really appreciate her getting them for me. The thing is..... When I unwrapped them, I saw this: You see where it says "WOMANS MODE"? Sh!t... they're women's pants!! So today, I contact the place where she got them and the guy tries to tell me they're not women's pants. What?!? It says it right there on the tag! He keeps saying that the women's pants are sized from 2-14, that they're half white and not all black, etc. etc. I wouldn't listen. I REFUSE TO SHOW UP AT THE TRAIL WITH WOMENS PANTS ON!!!!!!! At this point, I know he thinks I'm crazy. I end up taking pictures of the tag and email them to him. He looks up the Tucker Rocky number ..... same deal... MEN'S PANTS! He CALLS Answer....... same deal.... MEN'S PANTS. It turns out that Answer hung the wrong tag on these pants. So, I finally decided the thing to do was cut the tag off and enjoy my new MEN'S ENDURO PANTS and forget that they were ever labeled as women's. And in exchange for sharing this humorous story, DON'T Y'ALL EVER ACCUSE ME OF SHOWING UP TO RIDE WITH WOMEN'S STUFF ON!!
  19. If it doesn't rain again (50/50 chance) Carolina Powersports Park in Morganton NC. will be open for riding on New Years day.

    NorthCarolina Weekday riders?

    Hello guys. My name is Brian Johnson and I just wanted to ask if there is anyone in the Wilkes county area that is interested in riding some during the week. I work on second shift and ride almost every morning by myself. I have a great place to ride near North Wilkesboro if anyone is interested. My son has raced the past 2 seasons in the NCHSA and I have been bitten by the racing bug. I am starting to ride again after a 15 year hiatus and need a riding/practice buddy! Please let me know if you are interested/available to ride during the week. Thanks

    NorthCarolina Thursday ride 1/28

    Going to either Matts or Lakeside depending on which is more dried out by then. The weather this coming weekend looks like crap...again! So we're gonna try for a weekday, play-hookie, motocross extravaganza.
  24. I'm thinking about going there on Saturday the 2nd. What's it like? Think it will be muddy if it rains on Thursday? From the webpage it looks like a lot of sand so I'm guessing it drains well and dries out quickly. I'm interested in riding some trails and the mx track.
