  1. I'm working on converting the roll route sheet to a proper GPS/GPX route for this Sunday's Michaux Dual Sport. Has anyone done this before? Some parts are kinda confusing. Also, if you are a C- or so rider and want to group/time with me, let me know.
  2. Like the title sates I am looking for Dual Sport riders in the Tug Hill area. I am originally from Louisiana but I live in Adams, NY. I can literally leave my driveway and not touch a blacktop road other than to cross them for miles and miles. I am looking for others to ride with because we all know how dangerous it is to ride by ourselves in these out of the way areas and riding by yourself is boring. Also someone with a better knowledge of the trail system would be nice. I have explored many with google earth and actually riding them but I feel like a local knowledge of the trails is better than any map. I am available to ride pretty much every weekend ( except this weekend) and after 5 on weekdays. I ride a DRZ-400s if it matters. Just wanted to see if there was anyone else local riding the area. If you are local or are going to be in the area let me know and maybe we can ride Thanks Jay
  3. Any newer riders around central/eastern Ohio who want join me for dual sport rides? I'm in my first year of riding and only have about 4k miles under my belt so I'm looking for people who are also not really ready to spend the day jumping their bikes and racing through single track. I don't know the dirt roads or tracks around Ohio very well at all, but I count that as part of the learning curve with starting to dual sport. So, if you want to go out and have help picking up your bike (and don't mind helping others) and learning to dual sport with a relaxed, patient, and responsible, middle aged man. Let me know. I live just east of Gahanna but am fine with riding an hour or so to meet up (that's part of dual sporting, right?). -Joe
  4. I have been on the hunt for the best all around rear tire for my L. I want a tire to last a decent amount of time yet be amazing off road. This thread is more or less for myself to keep track of what I've tried and the results, hopefully someone else can benefit as well. I got the L last summer so have not had a ton of time to try tires but here is what I've done so far. 1. Stock tires - actually a pretty decent 50/50 tire. I need a much more dirt oriented tire so it wasn't working for me but I was surprised at how decent it was for a good all around 50/50. 2. Kenda K270 - amazing 50/50 tire. I tried the front and the rear. The front blows off road but the rear is quite good for what it is. These things wear like iron too. I only had them on for three rides but there is essentially zero wear and that is on hard terrain that shreds tires after just a few outings. 3. Scorpion XCMH - WOW! I tossed a pair of these on and headed out to the woods, I felt like I was glued to the ground. The traction and performance was exceptional. Problem was though that by the third time out for a ride they were toast. I only got about 1 3/4 rides out of them before they has significant wear. Half way through the third ride the rear was done. The pair cost me $260 and I didn't even get two full rides out of them before the wear significantly effected the performance. The front tire was great and had a decent lifespan. 4. Shinko 505 Cheater - I really, really like this tire. I ride in the mountains and there is a ton of rock and this sucker sticks to everything and gives amazing traction. It is currently on my bike and after two hard 6 hour plus rides it has held up alright, worn away about 30%. I think I'll likely get another two, maybe three rides out of it before she's pooched. ***************** Just got these in the mail today, will edit and post thoughts on them down the road. ***************** 5.

    I'm selling my 2014-Honda-CRF250l. I purchased it from a dealer in GA at the end of April with 1,107 miles on it. Current odometer reads 2,222 but I plan to keep riding it while it's for sale. I love the bike but I've decided I want something even more off-road oriented. Bike is pretty much stock other than sprocket upgrade (13/42) and addition of a Pro Moto Billet 'Rack It' rear rack. I also just replaced the stock tires with 90/10 DOT knobbies (about 320 miles ago. I also purchased a 3 year XtremeGard extended warranty which will transfer to the new owner. I still have the stock tires and sprockets which will go with the bike. I will update with more (cleaner) photos later.

  7. Hey guys, looking for some help here. I'm interested in buying a 1993 KLR650 i found on craigslist. The owner says that compression is good, but that there is no spark at the spark plug. Any idea what could be wrong with it? any experience with this before? I'm not afraid of getting my hands dirty. I'm excited about having a project, but i don't want to dump a bunch of money into it. All I can think of is grounding issues, maybe a bad stator, or oil in the spark plug wells from pad valve covers. Anyway, i'm a noob when it comes to motorcycles. Any ideas how i could find out what the problem is or anything to check for when i go look at the bike? Thanks!
  8. Happy Tuesday all, 3 more days til ridin' :). I just picked up a 17' Husky FE 501 and was anticipating having the option to switch my maps and turn traction control on and off. Yet, there is no switch mounted on the bike and I was so damn excited at the dealer that I looked it over. The pamphlet that came with the bike says that all enduro models are equipped with the switch. Haven't called the dealer yet, but wondering if you guys know anything about this. Kind of feels like false advertising by Husky and KTM, aka I'm not receiving the bike that I paid for.

  11. Hello, I am new to thumpertalk. I bought a used drz 400 a month ago. A week ago my bike didn't start anymore. The battery was empty, so I recharged it but the same thing happened again 2 days later. So I bought a new battery because I thought the old one was bad. The same thing happened again with the new battery. So I looked on thumbertalk for any solutions. It seems that the battery doesn't get charged when the bike is running. After checking the battery with a multimeter I get only 12,4 volt on my battery even if the motor is on and I am going up to 3000rpm. There are a few things that could be damaged or faulty. The adapter connecting the cables to the battery could be corroded. I checked for that but it seems to be fine. I looked at the fuse but there doesn't seem to be any damage. The rectifier was tested with a multimeter and it seems to be ok too. The only thing that is left is the stator and after checking with the multimeter it seems to be the problem since I don't get the same readings for the 3 different pins. So I removed the stator from my bike but after inspecting it it seems to be ok. No coils are burnt (or at least it seems like the stator is in a good condition). I made a couple of photos for you to see it for yourself. I don't have much experiences with these kind of things so I am not sure if I should I replace it or not or if the problem is somewhere else. Any help would be welcome. Thanks for your replies.

I'M FROM LONG BEACH CALIFORNIA, AS OF RIGHT NOW, I'M 41 YRS OLD, I'M IN THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY; FIRST AS THE KID THAT RAN AROUND HELPING THEN AS A SKILLED LABORER, THEN A FOREMAN AND SUPERINTENDENT, I WENT TO ARCHITECTS SCHOOL TO BE TRAINED TO BECOME A BLUEPRINT DRAFTSMAN, AND NOW ALSO REAL ESTATE SALES AGENT, BUT I STILL FEEL THAT IM JUST A GLORIFIED DITCH DIGGER, BECAUSE I LOVE A CHALLENGE AND HARD WORK. I GREW UP RIDING BMX SINCE I WAS 3, MY FIRST BIKE WAS SOME RACY RABBIT BIKE, THEN A HARO FST, A HARO MASTER, SE QUADANGLE, BOSS XXL, ALLIANT BILLET 24", AND NOW I STILL RIDE BMX FREESTYLE WITH A SUBROSA PANDORA DTT. AND MX SINCE I WAS ABOUT 10 ON A 79 YZ80, THEN A 88 KX80 BIG WHEEL, KX 125, A COUPLE OF CR250'S, AND THEN A 2003 CRF450R. IN 2005 I SUFFERED THROUGH A MAJOR INJURY, AND SUBSEQUENT SURGERIES TO HELP ME WALK AGAIN, SO I BASICALLY QUIT RIDING DIRTBIKES UNTILL 2017 THROUGHOUT THIS TIME I FOUGHT THRU 28 SURGERIES ON MY FEET AND ANKLES, BUT I CONTINUED TO SCUBA DIVE AND SURF, AS THE OCEAN WAS REALLY GOOD FOR ME TO HEAL, THE PACIFIC IS LIKE A REALLY NICE COLD EPSOM SALT BATH FOR MY ENTIRE BODY, THEN EVENTUALLY I STARTED TO RIDE BICYCLES AND DO SOME HIKING, AND WEIGHT TRAINING, AND STRETCHING. FOR MY 41ST BIRTHDAY I MAXED OUT ON BENCH 255 POUNDS FOR 5 REPS AND DID WHAT WAS IN THE PIC BY MYSELF, AND SQUATED THAT 100 POUNDS FOR 100 REPS THEY ALMOST CHOPPED OFF MY FOOT AND TOLD ME I'D NEVER WALK WITHOUT CRUTCHES, BUT GOD IS GOOD, AND SO NOW I COUNT MY BLESSINGS. THERE IS NO WHERE TO RIDE DIRTBIKES AROUND HERE IN MY HOMETOWN SO I NEEDED SOMETHING WITH A PLATE. SO I GOT MY 500 RR-S ON VALENTINES DAY 2017, HENCE THE NAME VALENTINA, I GOT HER FROM MOUNTAIN MOTORSPORTS IN ONTARIO FOR WHAT I BELIEVE IS A VERY GOOD PRICE. FIRST I'M GONNA DO SOME COPY AND PASTING OF SOME PAST POSTS

    I purchased the KLR 650 to commute to work, while it's a great bike for commuting, it's just not what I want. Bike has 13,xxx miles and will go up, assuming decent weather to ride to work. Starts, runs and rides well and has a newer seat. Let me know what questions you have. Marc marcmulhern@comcast.net

  18. I've been looking for a while for a dual sport to back-n-forth to the gas station with. Found a non-running 1982 SP250 with 600 original miles, got it cheap, it's clean as can be. I figured carb issues since the compression is great, first no fuel at all, everything looked good finally figured out someone had the float on upside down... flipped it over and got er going straight away. But it's running super lean, and is hard to start, won't run well until past mid throttle. It sputters and backfires like hell. Intake boot and oring are good, air box and filter are good, carb is clean, diaphragm is good spark plug is new (and whiteish brown). The main jet is #125. I'm at 1,200' msl. I have to order online, anyone have experience with these carbs? Should a #140 help? Or am I missing something else in my trouble shooting?

  20. What do you guys think of this guy's conclusions?
  21. Hello all, I'm the proud new owner of a very clean 1986 Yamaha TT350S. I've been going through the bike making sure everything is working. I cleaned the two carbs and made sure there was enough oil. It rides great and I'm excited to get it on the road soon! I have been having some issues with the lighting. The headlight bulb was blown out so I found another one on eBay. The taillight doesn't work and I've spent a stupid amount of time trying to figure out how to get it to work (seems simple but I can't get it to work!!). I replaced the bulb with a new 1157 12v bulb that I got at Oreillys. The bulb fits the assembly but doesn't work. I measured a couple volts off the blue and yellow wires that lead to the light. The ground seems good. Not sure how to check the switch next to the rear brake but it looked good inside to me. I'm at my wits end here with this, what should be, simple fix. Any tips or help would be much appreciated!
  22. Hey all, New to this forum because it seems like one of the best. little backround, I grew up trail riding and raced mx a bit with my cr80 (some of my favorite childhood memories)... hiatus for a number of years besides rippin around at the cabin, had an R6 for a 2 or 3 years and then I've been traveling for 4 years.... planning to settle back down in Mn for spring summer falls and want a bike to get around and tear up as much dirt as possible as I explore. goal is to enter some hare scrambles next year to start getting back into racing a bit but till then it will be my way to get around and my bike to train. I am probably looking for the impossile and so my heads spinning with all this information... but something around the 400cc seems like a good size bike but pretty much no options on cl at the moment. 250cc would be a blast and great to get back to dirt but when I cruz to see family and friend in other states, will I hate my life after an hour on the highway? I'm drawn to the xr650L with the mods and available parts but is it going to be a monstrous challenge to bring back and hone in my skills with a 350lbs bike? I'm 6'1" 175 lbs and train 3 days a week rock climbing, so I am in good health and great shape so I feel up to the challenge but maybe someone similar could share their experience/expertise? Massive failure jumping to a brh or were you happy to have something to grow into? budget is flexible but looking to spend 1-3k on something ready to go, reliable, street legal, and can hang off road. I'm looking to beat it up quite a bit so dont mind something older if it can hang. Pretty much sold on the Xr650L but thought this would be a good place to check myself before I wreck myself... literally... 2003 xr650l $2400 (is 20.5k miles too high??....they seem to run forever) I like that some of the mods I want are done already and it seems like a reasonable price if the splines on the countershaft sprocket are in decent shape? figure when the motor needs major work done on it bore it out and do some of the other more intrusive mods? 2007 xr650l $3300 extra parts and some mods, newer, lower miles crf230L $3000- fun size, but its it going to be a slug without spending a bunch more on mods? Am I going to want something bigger soon after? 03 KTM 625 SXC - $3300 seems like a solid option as well...??? Thoughts? comments? Thanks all!

  24. Hello all, My dad recently gave me his old xt600 that he bought back in 1989. It has been sitting for a while and it would not start. So we pulled out the carbeurator and cleaned out the varnish, as well as replacing oil and oil filter. Now, it is possible to start the bike. However, there are still 2 big issues. 1. When cold, it is possible to start the bike with full choke and a lot of legwork. But, it has no ability to idle once the engine gets warm. You have to give throttle input to keep it going. 2. Starting the bike after the engine has been warmed up is completely impossible. my Dad believes the old cdi is to blame. I am not sure. Thoughts anyone?
  25. Near Cortland, have access to some good dual sport stuff, always willing to share with others with fairly quiet bikes, with some tolerance for risk. Looking to see what other's stomping grounds are like, too!
