  1. So here is my conundrum - I have wired up my own harness for my enduro package as I did not like the Tusk version with lots of things I did not want or need. I've wired three different bikes and can read the wiring diagrams fine - even designed/built my own 12V harness with capacitor for my 1970 CT70. Back to the issue - everything works with the exception of my 12V aftermarket horn. I tagged off the blue wire for the headlight (headlight works fine) and sent it to the horn button and then to the horn and then grounded back to the wiring harness. When I press the horn button the light dims and the horn barely sounds - meeeep meeeep. I checked the voltage draw and its only like 1.7V to the horn. Just awful and wont pass DMV to get my street license plate. So I put on my thinking cap and drew on my experience with my CT70 (solid state with a capacitor instead of a battery) and I think the absence of a battery is likely the culprit on my XR400 as it typically evens out the voltage draw on the system (similar to the battery) to provide power to all components. So my question is what if I put a 0-25V 22,000uF capacitor (like I used on my CT70) on the White/Yellow wire coming out of the AC regulator that eventually ties into the BLUE wire that feeds the headlight, horn and rear running taillight? Would that provide the stabilization for the voltage draws when I use all of my accessories? Thanks for any help.
  2. Hey guys, I'm new to thumper, but I was hoping I could find someone who could help me. HERES THE DEAL! I've been riding 4 strokes for about 7 years now, but the 2T world has recently gotten my attention! I currently ride a 2006 YZ250F. (Fully rebuilt by myself;). I ride the piss out of it and I feel like it's missing something. I've tried shaking things up like riding different terrain(sand dunes,Rocks,etc.) I thought maybe I would try a 450, I got to ride my buddies CRF450X. lol that bike humbled me. It was way to high and It felt a LOT heavier. I crossed out the 450 bc I think it would be a waste and I wouldn't be able to push the bike to its limits. With that being said I'm trying to decide between (2017 Ktm 150 sx, 2017 Ktm 250sx, and 2017 YZ250 and/or the X model). Here's me.. I'm roughly 5'8" 175-185lbs. I lift 5-6 days a week. I enjoy riding anything and everything as long as I get to ride.
  3. Ok so we have a thread in Northwest that is for helmet cam vids, well lots of mine are shot with my mobile, so sort of rules that out, also we have Short Attention Span Theatre, but those are 45 seconds max. Here in the Pics and Vid section there is a thread on Technical Trails, but the Secret Training Ground has lots of technical bits, these climbs are semi-technical. The more we ride them, the easier they get. There are also lots of short, technical spots generally steep with roots but those are all short sections. I will post up vids from the Secret Training Ground. If you have some Secret location vids, post em up, but it has to be a secret location. No telling where you're at. Backstory here... we keep making little climbs that are more difficult than the last one. First Hill, No Way, Rock Face, then OhEmEffGee, each time we're thinking man, not sure we'll get up it, then after wearing it down a bit we start to make it up on a regular basis. Cheers. Latest- hot off the press from the last 3-4 weeks. Rock Face Revisited bit is from last weekend. Super muddy slick (not as slick as wet clay though)... https://youtu.be/ZldYXmPAy9E
  4. I have my 2001 DRZ400S I have converted to a supermoto, and now I want to start doing performance mods. I want to do the 3X3 mod, along with a jet kit, and a pipe. As of now my personal choice is going to be the Yoshi RS2 Full system, a Dynojet jet kit, and a K&N filter for the 3X3. I am posting this to see if anyone would disagree with this setup, or have any recommendations on what might be better or worth doing along the way. (I do not want to wait 4 weeks for the MRD exhaust or I would go that route) Any comments or recommendations are greatly appreciated, Going to do this in about one week. Thank you, Brad
  5. Is the dr250 any good of a street legal bike for cruisin down the back roads or around little towns? Around 60mph needed max. Any problems I should be aware of?

  7. so I bought a 1986 xr600r a few months back. Third owner of it now. the bike ran for a good month or two, but then shit hit the fan. it started just fine but when i went to ride it it would randomly die. i would let it sit for a bit thinking that it was overheating then it would turn start again. that went on for about a week. then it just wouldn't start at all, no spark. so i took it into the shop, not being skilled with wiring. they charged me 300 buck to fix a couple bad wire and connections. so i picked it up and got it home. started it a couple times because i was to busy to ride but wanted the keep it alive. then same shit. no spark again. so this time i was like &%$#@! that I'm not paying to have them fix a couple bad wires again. so i checked the connections they looked good i replaced the ignition coil and the rectifier because they were giving me bad readings, and now I'm stuck because the shop said the stator was the first thing they checked and it was fine so what am i missing. Please help!!!!!

  9. ok, first thread, so if i mess up or do something wrong, im also 15 so remember any advice helps, Ive been riding dirt bikes since i was 3, before i even could ride a scooter, and ive always loved riding (sometimes a little too much) but that had always been dirt limited, until the beginning of this year i traded my (moped, which was actually incredibly illegal) as it went close to 70 with all the mods i put on it, for a 79 xl250, it ran, sort of, the guy sprayed gas in the cylinder and showed me it run, and i believed him. When i had gotten it home, the problems began adding up, it wasnt getting spark, the spokes on the front were all really loose, and someone really ****** up the paint job on the tank ( over the original honda stickers i might add) but this wasnt too bad, i saved up worked around my neighborhood and with my money, i got a supertrapp megaphone exhaust pipe ( someone butchered the old one completely) a new carb and airbox (someone took the airbox off and put metal mesh on, not even pods, just a piece of steel mesh over the tube) and a new cdi. This is when i started to realize i had gotten ripped off, first of all, it wasnt even a 250 engine, nor the right year, and there are no id numbers on the engine i can find to determine what year or size it is, so at this point i had blown all my money on parts for a bike that had the wrong engine. I immediately raced to ebay looking for a motor, no such luck, cheapest motor is 350 and its in terrible shape, i look on craigslist, nothing, i look on craigslist again a few hours later, and BOOM 79 xl250 runs & rides no title 300 dollars, perfect dent and scratch free original tank, oem seat, and every light they came with, and only 300 miles on it, im guessing it was kept in a barn, so i talk to the guy and i ask if i payed him 50$ if he would deliver it, and if he had paypal. he doesnt respond, i text him again after school that day "sorry i dont deliver, i sold it a few hours ago" instantly im even more frustrated, as this was exactly what i needed, but i have found another thing now, my neighbor has a 83 xl500 motor that runs and was fully rebuilt, hasnt even been put in a bike since he blew a head gasket on it, i was wondering how hard it would be to put this motor into the xl, i have very little fabricating experience, but my neighbor is a mechanic, he kinda laughed about it when i mentioned it to him, so im wondering, would it really be that difficult, thanks - Landon
  10. Here's a foorum for all of your videos about dirtbikes you would like to share!
  11. Hi folks I started up a series on my YT channel for enduro riding lessons so I hope some of you can get something out of them, they are a ton of work filmed, edited and produced by myself I also ride in them! Here is EP 1 with EP 2 ready for release this coming Friday! Thx https://youtu.be/f7MVL5jvieY
  12. Hey Kawi riders! Wondering what upgrades I can do to a new KX100 will give me better performance for woods riding. I would also like to know if upgrading the exhaust/muffler actually increases overall hp instead of just transferring the powerband a bit. The 2014+ models already have 28hp. Hard to believe they can draw that much hp out of 100cc! Which muffler and exhaust would you recommend KX100 woods riders? Thanks
  13. Hello all, I just got my frist KTM a couple of weeks ago, and I am very happy so far! I find the gear perfect for the woods and tight trails, but I also use the bike for open trails, and some times I ride up to 50 km (30 miles) in order to get to the interesting trails, so here comes my questions: 1. Will the bike a loose a lot of torque with a 14 tooth front sprocket? Will I notice an actual improvement in the open trails? 2. Is it ok for the engine to ride 30 miles (and back) at regular speeds (50 mph) before getting the the trails? Or should I be looking very cautious at the amount of hours I put on the engine? I am planning to do oil changes every 300 miles, and regular air filter cleaning. On open roads is the only time that I some times miss my WR 450 F. I was using 14/48. But once I get to the trails, i just forget her completely. Thanks for the advice! Cristián
  14. I am racing the Baja1000 for the first time this year on a team. All of the guys I am racing with have years of experience and have raced on teams and iron manned the race. Most of the guys I will be racing with have KTM or Hondas but I myself have the 2010 Yamaha YZ450F. I am looking for any recommendations on setting the bike for baja. I am an advanced rider, my style is somewhat aggressive, I weigh 180lbs and am 6'1. I am looking to maximize my fuel capacity, connect a light, kickstand, and tires. I am curious about gearing, and mapping for the bike as well as any other ideas you want to throw my way.
  15. I've always been a large man, 6'4" 275 lbs and im looking into getting a decent bike for hard enduro. I understand that light is better however I have a chance to pick up a 2013 honda xr650l for only 3k$ and was wondering if it would be an ok bike for this type of riding. We also have roughly 150+ miles of goverment maintained trails where I live and would like to take it out on those to (id probably ride it to work on overly nice days). Is this a decent bike for hard enduro at my size? Would I need to purchase a new suspension or can I tune the current one? Is this bike even worth the 3k$ he's asking? (I constantly see the same bike from 2002-2008 run at this price where I live) What are good cheap mods to do to it if I do get it? (Already has the carb mod/welded subframe/egr removed) What should I look out for when buying? What is the rebuild mileage? He has roughly 9k on it, I dont make great $ and im paying for school at the same time so I'm looking for very low maintenance (besides oil/filter swaps every few rides)
  16. Im looking at ideas to help screen out mud right behind the front tire in the area above the header cylinder area. I was thinking of some kind of stainless mesh wiring . Im not sure what could be used yet. Haven’t gone to the hardware store or ebay etc for brain storming. It’s weird as this last ride lots of mud collected but in earlier mud rides bery little debris collected here. Any ideas? Seen any decent setups?
  17. Can i have my own thread and put up pictures of what im doing with my GG bike? Im going to do some mods to it so it's fits my riding. (Enduro) Yesterday i polished my exhaust system, and im happy with it.. The previous owner had painted it black, so it took me one day to remove paint and wet sand it down before i could even think to polish it GasGas EC250 -11 SIX DAYS
  18. Time2ride is a newish dirtbike park just southwest of the DFW area. I will do a full review video later, but this is a video of the entire track (both kids and big bike). Rather slow, as this was our first ride of the day, but it should give you an idea of what to expect. In short, while it is not what a lot of people would call "challenging" it is a LOT of fun, and really great practice. If you have ever played golf (which I haven't in 10-15 years...), you probably know what a 9 hole practice course is and how fun they are. I think of this place kind of like that. Great place you can take new riders, and still have a great time yourself! Definitely worth taking a trip out there! http://www.time2ridetx.com/
  19. Hello, I own a 2005 Sherco enduro street legal 450 injected. I would like to know if anyone owns the same bike and why the parts are so scarce here in North America., also where to find them .I live in Vancouver Canada and here the Sherco dealers closed down and Sherco left for good. Thank you and Happy New Year.
  20. Hi everyone and merry chrimbo to all. Ive pretty much finished my resto project and everything’s great apart from the dim lights. I bought the bike with the problem, and thought it would be an easy fix. Nothing seems to fix the fault. So far, I’ve replaced the whole wiring harness, the rear light and wires, brake light switch and wires, front light holder and wires, speedo cable and wires. All 6v bulbs and I even had the light coils checked and replaced. So everything has been done apart from the handlebar switchgear. I had the frame powdercoated, but sanded the main earth point for the harnsess, so it’s a good earth. Even, ground two points of the five engine mounting points away hoping that might help. All the electrics work like they should including the pass light, just dim lights. Has anyone had this problem? Does the engine need to be grounded at every point? I thought if the engine had one good ground that would be enough. Really at a loss with this, and if I can’t sort I have to admit defeat and had it over to an auto electrician ?
  21. Good day, I've just bought an enduro jacket like in the picture below. There are two things I don't understand about it. First is what that ring is for. Seems I've read somewhere that it's to shut off the ignition in case you dismount. But how do I connect that ring to my motorcycle? I ride a street-legal Honda CRF250 Rally. The second question is about that socket for the water pipe. I don't understand where I'm supposed to put the water bladder. I have a Kriega camelbag and it works independently. But where it's supposed to put the water bladder when using that socket? There is a small pocket on the inner side just below it, but I doubt even a one liter bladder would fit there let alone 3 liters that I have. Please help the noob.
  22. Anyone’s air box smell like gas ? Is this normal ? Air filter is bone dry but it reeks in there .... I’m assuming cause of the carb being semi filled with gas ??
  23. Was watching Romaniacs 2017 last night and saw this on a quick flash to a riders bike. These grips have a "Ridge" at the front to aid in throttle control. Anyone know what company makes these or what they would be called? I searched all night and cannot find a thing! Thanks in advance for the help!
