  1. What do you guys think of this guy's conclusions?
  2. hey guys, so lately i’ve been thinking and i think i’d like to try and get my hands on a dual sport that i could bring onto the streets. i’m looking for the early-mid 80’s era as i love the look of them. i don’t know much about these, and all i’ve really looked at were the honda xl’s & xr’s. Which do you think would be a decent bike i could get to restore? i have also been looking at the drz’s as well. but i’d like to know what’s the pro’s and con’s of the different dual sport type bikes and which you’d prefer? & also, all i have to rip now is a 250 2t on dirt.. and i know for examples the xr’s go up to 650 but haven’t been able to find anywhere, mostly 250’s and 300’s. Have any you guys ridden these? just seems like small displacement for the roads? you guys ever wish they had more power? thanks for any input!

    1994 xr500r

    I've seen a couple forums about converting an xr600, but i want to ask a few specific questions. First of all i'm a new rider and i'm looking at getting a 1994 xr600r and converting it to a dual sport. I will be doing quite a bit of street riding, commuting back and forth between work most days and some off road on the weekends. 1. Should i change the gearing? 2. Is there a cush drive I can put on the xr600? 3. What other advice do you have for converting an xr? exauhst? suspension? jetting? etc. thanks!

    Willamette Valley riding buddies

    Dual Sport riders in the Willamette Valley! I am looking for riding buddies in the area, specifically Corvallis. I am an XR400 rider, been at it since I was 8. Just looking for any groups that go out on monthly rides.
  5. Do those who run sumo and dirt setups on the same bike swap chains and brake pads as well?
  6. Ok, first things first I haven't posted in a while and yes I have searched. Just need some more opinions. Riding a KTM 450 EXC. Mostly used AlpineStars Tech 3-8 boots. Decent but needing waterproof boots and something way more protective than the average "adventure" boot that offers little protection. I'm not doing Xtreme Enduros but relatively aggressive at times. Any opinions on AlpineStars Toucan, Sidi Adventure, Forma Terra, AlpineStar Corozal, TCX, etc. Thanks.

    Electrical issues

    So, I'm new to this and dirt bikes in general. I did small engine repair in high school, so I'm not full on retarded in that respect. But I digress. My dad recently have me a 1980 Honda XL250s Dual sport bike. It's got the 6v system, and goofy 23" wheel. When I got it, it had sat for a couple years, but nonetheless, I had it running in no time. Then a month later, it was fine tuned with the correct filter, carb rebuild, etc. So it runs fine, no problems there. So now I'm onto electrical; blinkers, horn, things to make it road legal. So after I bought a brand new 6v battery, charged it, I was going through the lights. Headlight runs off stator, so that's fine, tail light runs off both, that's fine, turn signal switches are good, but lights stay solid. Horn switch doesn't work, but I haven't tested the horn itself. Most instrument lights work, but there may be an issue because I used LEDs for that, and when I hit the turn signal, the light comes on, but shuts off neutral light. Today I got all 4 signals to light up, after I grounded the rear lights. But now they don't come on with just the switch on. Only when the bike runs. And I'm only getting 3v at the battery when it's running. I feel like I just made it worse when I "fixed" the rear turn signals. And to make things worse, my 6v trickle charger doesn't work anymore.
  8. I know this topic has been discussed in the past, but I have not found any options available for the new 2018 bikes. I live and work for a new Beta Dealer (Auburn Extreme Powersports) in California, and we are having a difficult time mapping the RR-S bikes for full FMF exhausts. We have tried contacting Beta Support several times for this issue to no avail, and we typically are given the runaround when transferring to techs and secretaries. From what we can gather, the FMF flash is designed for the RR bikes, but not the street-legal counterparts. Every time we try to install the FMF map onto an RR-S errors occur, and the programmer screen goes virtually blank. We have heard through the grapevine that some are using the RR maps on the RR-S with success, but we have yet to try it, even on our own bikes for fear that it will permanently erase or damage the CDI. Any and all help or suggestions regarding this topic would surely be appreciated! Thanks, Ben.

    Central NY State Forests

    Any riders outs there near Syracuse, Cortland or Binghamton? I'll be looking to explore the many state lands and back roads in the vicinity...come spring! I'm 1/2 hour south of Syracuse by Morgan Hill State Forest. There's tons of rural lands in Chenango, Broome & Tioga counties.
  10. Hey all , away on vacation and want to buy some hand guards for the drz while I’m out here options for the bars that actually mount are 7/8 and 1 - 1/8 since I’m not near the bike I’m not sure which size I need I’m running stock bars on a 2017 drz400 s any input is appreciated as always
  11. Xtrainer as a Dual Sport Review. I plated my Xtrainer last year with a restricted plate here in Idaho when I first got the bike. The Restricted plate allows me to ride anywhere except on Freeways/Highways unless the posted speed limit is 45 or less and within 3 miles of an established city. That would have been good enough but I live about 10 miles out of town and I have to use the highway with a speed limit of 60 to get there. Along with other off-road designations I would use the Highway to get to I needed the unrestricted plate. My wife works for the DMV, she got me the proper paperwork for the unrestricted plate. She also got to look thru the “Dead” plate list and found me MTN 208, 208 is our area code. I added the turn signals and a mirror so now my bike is legal for any state anywhere, just as if it was a factory street bike. Insurance is only $75 a year. List of modifications. Cycra Probend 1” bar risers. FMF Spark arrestor. Hammerhead brake pedal. Generic Turn signals for the front and LED strip for the rear with LED Flasher. JD Jetting and slightly lower Float level. Everything else is stock, tires, gearing, suspension, ETC. Pavement Ride report. Nice and smooth in the 30 to 60 Miles per hour range. It will run 70+ but the engine is singing along at that rate. Trying to ride 25 or less at a steady pace was not as good. The bike didn’t like the lower steady RPM. It would gurgle and surge. This was a bit better than before I had the JD Jetting. Plug still looked rich, black. Adjusting the Air/Fuel screw didn’t change much. Off-Road the bike performs great, just as it should. Plenty of low end grunt. Varying the throttle off-road the low speed gurgle isn’t noticeable. Pavement Ride Report with Float set even lower, about 1mm. WOW much better. Low end gurgle is pretty much gone, just a slight amount but livable. I rode it 30 miles on pavement and it didn’t miss a beat. It is very comfortable at 50, the motor is running smoothly, about 1/4 throttle at this pace. Very little spooge out the muffler but it might because of the high revs I was riding at. Lowering the float a bit probably is the best free mod to do to this bike. It now is a very good Dual Sport especially compared to my old Dual Sport bike I have owned. Past Dual Sports include 1982 Yamaha XT200, 1996 Yamaha XT350, 1988 Honda NX250 and a converted 2001 WR426F. If I was to ride more on the street the 430 or the 500 would better but I think the Xtrainer is the best for the little amount of street riding I do and its off-road ability is fantastic. If you need to travel on pavement to connect trails I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending the Xtrainer as a great all around bike. It even does well cruising downtown.
  12. A key part of the dualsportduo blog is to test parts & accessories for the KTM 690 Enduro R and 701 Enduro platforms and share our experience with you. For the last month or so, I've been riding on a new product from Fasst Company called Impact Adventure Foot Peg. Outside of being really nice over-sized foot pegs, the unique feature is that the foot bed is isolated from the foot peg body by an elastomer whos job is to squelch vibration and shock. Here's a side-by-side shot with the stock KTM 690 Enduro R foot peg. I knew they were lasering in the TT logo, but my name came as a surprise. Is that like a monogrammed sweater? I'm going to take crap from my riding buddies forever! Here's a shot of what the elastomers look like: Installed Shot: You can find my full review @ If you have any questions, hit me up in the comments selection below. What do you think of these foot pegs? Interested in hear your thoughts! Bryan Bosch, Steve Claus - #dualsportduo
  13. Had a great day of riding Saturday with my buddy @Bryan Bosch in the Withlacoochee National Forrest just north of Dade City, Fl. It's still pretty wet from the summer rains and Hurricane Irma didn't help! But, like always, the 701 took everything in stride, even with worn Continental TKC80 tires. Well, "almost" everything... Unfortunately, the trail riding portion of the day got cut short because of a little mishap that resulted in my clutch perch letting go of the handlebars... As we left the sandy trails, turning onto a damp, hard-packed clay road, just a tiny little goose of the throttle caused the bike to walk sideways into an unrecoverable low-speed drop... Since the fall seemed so minor, I was surprised to see that the pinch bolt for the clutch perch had pulled out the threads! Uhhhhh, this is the "Enduro" model, not the wimpy SM version or even more girly-man KTM 690 Enduro R! IT'S a HUSKY!!!!! Fortunately my riding partner is a zip tie junkie, so we patched things up enough to get 'er home. When I got it home, I noticed that the threads went quite a bit deeper than the factory installed bolt was taking advantage of, so I was able to thread it back together using a longer bolt. Clearly this is a bit of a weak spot on the big girl, so I'll be installing REAL hand guards shortly. What hand guards do you guys like? Hit me up in the comments section below and don't be afraid to share your pictures. I'd love your help in picking out a pair of hand guards. Time to replace the stock wannbe "bug guards" er, huh... "hand guards". Bryan Bosch Steve Claus #dualsportduo Moto the big girls? Thought about it!!!! - Dade City MX park on the way home. At least the KTM comes with full wrap around hand guards.

    Dual Sport Legality

    So I live in Cook County and i was looking into buying a dual sport, however i wont be driving on roads until i get my license(1year). So i was wondering when i buy the bike do i need to get insurance for it anyway and license and all that. Or I dont need to, since ill be only riding on private trails and forests. Im thinking of buying the Yamaha 250r, 2016 or 17.
  15. Curious as to the overall feelings of dual sport riders reading about the 2019 CRF450L regarding the likelihood of buying one. If I've missed a question, reply and I'll consider adding the option to the poll. Also, votes are anonymous.

    To Beta or not to Beta

    Hey all, My name is Jay and i'm new to the forum community but not new to the sport. However I have reached my limit with my expertise and am hoping some of you may be of some help. Without further ado... I've stuck to a track most my life, I.E. Motocross, arena cross and outdoor national style tracks. I've made the difficult decision to leave to tracks to the young guns and ride more single track and trail riding up in the mountains. So i started by selling me Factory SLM racing 2012 Yz450F, yes i cried when he drove off with her. But i looked to greener pastures with hopes to have a KTM 500exc, Beta 500rr-s or a Husqvarna FE501. However, almost a year later and I still don't have a shiny new dirt magnet in my shop. I'm in the final deliberations and have narrowed it between KTM and BETA, with me leaning towards the BETA. This is where you come in. I would like to know the following. Is the Beta service intervals as daunting as the KTM's? Is the cost of parts between the two noticeable? And are the just as readily available? Those that have a 2017 of either bike, How are they holding up? Can I expect this bike to hold up like a 1985 XR250 (An almost impossible feat)? What are any major concerns about either bike? and finally what made you choose one or the other? Thank you for your efforts and advice. I appreciate it.

    First gen Dr650s...

    Hey all, new here. I’m going to look at what I believe is a 95 dr650s. The owner said it’s a 96 but it’s a kickstart bike. I thought 96 started the e-start generation. The bike has 12k on the clock and has a fer aftermarket goodies. He’s the second owner and the first was his buddy. All the maintenance was done at a local Moto shop. I’ll be getting as a trade and Im just wondering what I should be on the lookout for when I go check out the bike, common issues that should be addressed, etc... Thanks Chris
  18. With approximately 450 miles of back-roads, jeep trails, and even some sandy, whooped out single track, what's the verdict on the 2017 KTM 690 Enduro R? Is the new bike honeymoon over? Did it live up to rather high expectations? I'll cut to the chase and say that I absolutely love this bike and have zero regrets on my purchase! Why? Keep reading and I'll do my best to explain. Currently the engine, suspension, and brakes are bone stock. Mods coming? Oh yes... There WILL be mods! Bryan Bosch taking a mid morning break from the sand whoops - Croom OHV Brooksville, FL That Motor! The 690 Enduro R power plant in many ways defines this machine. It makes BIG boost from bottom to top in a very linear fashion that always puts a smile on my face. On the street, whack the throttle wide-open and the front tire lofts as you row through the gears. You're not trying to wheelie, the bike just pulls that hard. If you're a wheelie guy, this bike makes it easy. From the factory, there is a sticker that warns you not to exceed 100 mph, but my guess is that it will pretty easily. My buddy has the 701 Husqvarna and we dragged on a flat, long, deserted dirt road. We decided to back 'er down in the mid 90s, but both bikes had more legs left. Off-road, the gearing is a little high for tight single track, but this bike really seems to be the most at home in more open, flowing terrain. In ski racing terms, it's more at home on the giant slalom course. Not that it's not nimble or capable of tighter terrain. The bike has tons of low-end and a 'butta smooth Magura Hydraulic Clutch, so I find myself in 3rd a lot, just rolling on the throttle. But, a surge of power is a clutch pull away. I'm more of a short-shifter, so this torquey motor suits my style. Where we ride, it's just about all sand and even in tighter, slower sections, the bike is hard to stall, even with lazy clutch skills. Is the motor buzzy or vibey? Sort of a tough question because that's personal perception. I will say, before I bought it, this was my biggest worry. I've had Carpel Tunnel surgery on my throttle hand with mild nerve damage in both wrists, and things like string trimmers cause my hands to tingle after 10-15 minutes of use. I even had some issues with my ultra-smooth Triumph Tiger 800XC in-line triple. Maybe it's certain resonance frequencies, but I'm not having any issues with the 690. So, very, very relieved. And, word on the street is that after a couple thousand miles, the motor smooths out a bit more. For back-road dualsporting on the stock DOT knobbies, vibes are pretty mild, but as the speed picks up, so do the vibes. If you want to pound freeway, I'd suggest different tires. The stockers are happiest below 55, maybe 60 mph @ 20-25 psi. Not a fan of highway slabbin', so I'm keeping these tires. Suspension I really have no complains here. It's never harsh or chattery and always feels planted. Keep in mind that in central Florida, you couldn't find a rock if your life depended upon it. Most of our trails are soft sand, but there are plenty of sections with exposed roots. On Memorial Day, we rode an area called Croom and despite the unrelenting, deep sand whoops, this bike surprised me. For its 326 ready-to-ride pounds, it tracked through the whoops straight and both ends stayed pretty poised. However, I'm not going to say that sand whoops is where the bike shines. Most purpose built off-road race bikes would be a better choice, but I wanted to see how she'd do and it was surprisingly well all things considered. But, I hate to ride sand whoops all day, so not high on my list of performance criteria. Still nice to know what the bike can do. Brakes The over-sized Galfer front wave rotor and dual piston Brembo caliper with ABS offers plenty of initial bite & power, enough to tax the grip of the Pirelli MT21 DOT front tire on dry pavement. When the pavement is wet, this is where the ABS rocks. Off-road, ABS is easily turned off by pushing and holding a single button on the gauge cluster. However, it sucks that every time you turn the bike off, it defaults to ABS on. The aftermarket has options to fix this, but I'd prefer my last setting to be remembered. I'm sure a KTM lawyer will disagree with me. At least there is a button vs. having to nav to sub menus to turn ABS off like my last bike. Handling When compared to a dirt bike, say the KTM 500EXC, the 2017 KTM 690 Enduro R is a big girl on paper. However, I think it rides a lot lighter than the numbers would suggest. With the rearward fuel tank mounted low and relatively central to the bike's mass, it's slim in the mid section like a 450 and remarkably light on its feet. Even in tighter terrain, weaving the bike through the trees is easy and overall, the bike feels pretty nimble. About the only time you feel the mass is when you get the bike crossed up in deep sand and mistakenly grab a handful of big bore. For me, the most fun is rippin' down a sandy trail, power sliding from corner-to-corner. This is very easy with all the power the 690 has on tap and the handing is very predictable. Around town and on back-roads, the bike is a sweet heart. It will do freeway speeds without issue, but without a windscreen, longer runs would be a chore IMHO. All Kittens and Rainbows? Hmmmmmmmmmm.... no. Where do I think KTM came up short with the 2017 KTM 690 Enduro R? Here's my list so far (not in any particular order): 1. How tall do they think most of us are? This bike is tall! I'm 5' 10" and it's still tall. With boots on, I'm still just slightly better than on my tip toes. Thank God for the strong steel kickstand for getting on the bike. At the lowest point of the seat, it's 37". 2. For almost 11k before taxes & registration, no fuel gauge? This is a premium dual sport KTM. You made the tach sweep up and back at start up like a race car, but no fuel gauge? Booo! But, at least there is a low fuel light, just before you run out. 3. KTM, you still can't make a comfortable seat? I know you love your sporty, sharp angles, but they create pressure points that don't feel good on the ass after a few hours. Can't you compromise a little aesthetics for comfort? For 11k, I shouldn't have to immediately order a functional dual sport seat. And even worse, the seat pan rubber bumpers? I have extras in my garage b/c they fall out if you look at them wrong. 4. Handlebars are too low for standing. I understand that we all come in different shapes & sizes, but I'm much closer to the average that otherwise. 5. No power port for my phone or navigation? I appreciate the power with key on Accessory 2 wires in the loom behind the headlight, but again, premium dual sport. For the money it should come with this. But then again, dummies like me pay what you ask, so... 6. The shifting action is good, but if you're not very deliberate, a missed shift is pretty easy. I happens to me a couple of times on every ride, mostly upshifting into higher gears. There is an aftermarket fix that I might install if it really bothers me. My Bottom-line My biggest regret is the two year detour riding a 500lb. ADV bike. The 2017 KTM 690 Enduro R has re-lit my fire for dirt biking. I'm once again excited for the next ride because this bike is just so much fun to ride. All of the gripes above are either completely livable or fixable in the aftermarket and none are show stoppers. I think that the 2017 KTM 690 Enduro is an amazing dual sport and for my needs, I absolutely made the right choice to sell my 2013 Triumph Tiger 800XC. I was a little worried that the 690 Enduro R might be a dirt bike with a license plate (had a plated KTM 450), but there is no question that it's a purpose built dualsport that is better on the road than a dirt bike and far better than a big ADV bike off-road. For me, I've found the middle ground that I was looking for. Fathers day is this Saturday and when my wife asked what I wanted, the answer was easy, "I'm going ridin' hon!"

    WR250R vs CRF250L

    I'm looking at these two bikes as dualsports for the price and mpg. Even though I just said I'm looking at these two as dualsports I plan on putting slicks on them because I already have a dirt bike. I don't plan on any crazy mods with them except for maybe an exhaust. Which one would you recommend and why? And if you want you can throw in the CRF250L rally model as well.
  20. I need a new bike. I can get most any bike tagged. Most of my riding buddies ride KTM 450 EXC's. Some ride KTM 525's or 530's. And some ride Yamaha WR450's and Honda CRFX450's. We do a lot of dual sporting, and enduro type trail riding. A couple times a year we do bigger dual sport type trips where we ride 100 - 200 miles per day with some rode and highway type riding and mostly dirt, including some knarly singletrack. I want a bike that can best handle the nasty trail stuff and I want to be able to keep up with everyone. I also like a bike that is flickable. Of my buddies bikes, I feel the best in the tight woods on the KTM's and I think they are the only ones with a 6 speed tranny which is a singificant advantage. But, it seems when we go on our trips, the KTM guys are always doing maintenance on their bikes - changing oil etc. I want a bike with as little maintenance as possible. I can't quite get a straight story on whether or not the KTM's are truly lighter than the yamahas and hondas. They feel like it a little in the tight stuff. To summarize I want the bike which offers the best total package considering: A bike that has the power and handling to keep up with my group and to feel comfortable doing so. A bike that has enough power to comfortably keep up with them on the highway. But a bike that is lower maintenance. (and I can get a tag for any brand)

I've been looking for a little more muscle than my DRZ 400Sm and my local dealer has a 2014 KTN 690r, very clean, but 21K on it, ,thus I wonder what maintenance/problems I could be looking forward to $$. Another option they have is a 2011 Husky TE 630 with 5000k or so, both bought at auction I'm just not sure??? Thoughts

    2001 DRZ400s not starting need help

    Alright im going to try and be as detailed as possible. Last road my 2001 DRZ400S in september, did an atv dirt bike ride with a group and it was about 40 miles of nothing but off road. crashed a few times and broke left rear turn signal. replaced the left rear signal, didnt get the chance to ride it since due to military stuff and leave. let the battery die on it and tried to jump it, jumped it and after a 5-10 minutes of cranking trying to get it running it finally kicked on but it ran very rough. lots of popping and back firing and would only stay running if i held the throttle half open and still connected to the jumping vehicle. came to conclusion that the battery was done. ordered new battery (BikeMaster TruGel MG7B-4). Got it in put it in the bike and tried to fire and it would just turn over and over but wouldnt start. exhaust would thump as the engine turned. pulled the spark plug and it was black, changed the plug to a new one, gapped right, checked for spark and got it put that in and it would still just turn over and over and not fire, still thumping from the exhaust. drained the carb, new gas. pulled the plug again and it was dry, put some gas on it and tried to fire again and same result. decided to pull the carb, jets were all junked up changed them out with MSR Carburetor kit from motorcycle superstore, only jet i didnt change was the secondary air jet that the diaphragm and needle sit on as it was clean, put the carb back together following the specs in the manual. put the carb back in the bike and same result, it would turn over and over, same thump from the exhaust but would not fire but there were times where it sounded like it was about to start (turned over faster and sound changed) but it never started and would only turn over. checked the plug again and it was still dry, still got spark, put more fuel on the plug again and same result. not sure what else to check but i hope one of yall out there can give me some advice to fix this. weather is too nice not to ride.

    New to riding

    Hello everyone, I am new to riding dirt bikes I am looking to doing more trails than track, I am 31 years old, 250lbs "a little on the heavy side huh? What do you guys recommend I been looking at the yz250f or crf250l thanks
  25. I have a 2003 dr200se. Tonight I was riding back from work on the freeway, as I was accelerating going probably 55ish I heard a weird banging noise and thought it was my stuff strapped to the back. But as I pulled over I smelled smoke and when I got off smoke was coming out of the exhaust like something was burning inside. Once it stopped smoking after like 5 or 10 minutes I tried to start it but the starter made a weird half trying noise. As I pushed it home I tried starting it periodically but always the same until eventually nothing at all, but that's probably just the battery. I know very little about bikes but I feel like it's gotta be pretty bad since the knocking and burning and it was running great before that moment. I cleaned and rebuilt the carb a few months ago after it wasn't getting fuel. I don't know if I could have screwed something up then but I ride it everyday and that was over 3 months ago. The bike died on my way home tonight. Anyone know what caused this, I couldn't find anything matching this Googleing.
