  1. Hi, have an 84 pe 175 and really struggling getting the bike to run properly. Carb was thick with crud, so replaced the pilot and main jet, along with the needle valve assembly. Set the needle midway and mix at one and half turns out. Didn’t run great and raised the needle clip up to lean it out, and 2 and half turns on mixture. Runs ok, but does have a flat spot from close throttle to full open and is dumping fuel back into the box and leaving a puddle. And I can’t understand why. As I said replaced the usual suspects, checked the float and level and all seems good. And although the carb looks good, can’t determine if this worn out, Reed valves or I’m Just being stupid? Any advice would really help, as its doing my nut. Cheers

  5. HELLO EVERYBODY, I FIGURED I'D START A THREAD ABOUT MY PERSONAL BETA 500 RR-S, AS WELL AS MY WIFES BETA 125RR-S: I HAVE BEEN POSTING ON OTHER PEOPLES THREAD GIVING MY OPINIONS AND THOUGHTS ON THIS BIKE SO HERES ONE ABOUT MY EXPERIENCES WITH IT. 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
  6. Ive had my 2007 CRF450X for about a year now, bought it from someone who was using it for dual sport duty. I basically trailer it and ride singletrack and maybe 10% road so I do not need the DS kit on it. I hate the keyed ignition, the clunky light/turn/kill switch, and the mess of wires behind the headlight. I have removed all the turn signals and the bike has a TrailTech which I want to upgrade. The whole kit seems spliced in and Im not sure I want to just remove stuff and not be able to get it to fire up, Has anyone installed or removed this kit? Does anyone have any suggestions parts-wise for replacing the kill-switch button back to stock and making sure the thing still runs after I take the kit off? I plan to run an off-road LED light bar and just a basic front plate. Thanks for the suggestions!
  7. Let me introduce myself, I moved to Addison County a year ago. I try to ride a few times a week, for an hour or so at a time, but haven't met anyone in the area that rides. I am looking for a group that gets together and does regular woods riding. I have some trails and a small endurocross track, and a small corner track in a field but I'm hoping to branch out and meet some woods riders. Id consider sharing track time at my house with reputable people that invite me to a single track ride. There is endless amount of woods in VT, and incredible terrain, but I'm relatively new to the area, and could use some guidance for getting around the the hills of Vermont. This is my first post, and hopefully I can get to know a good group of riders.

  9. What changes need to be done to convert a Mx bike to a decent competitive woods bike? I'm thinking suspension work, hi flow water pump, larger radiators, bark busters, flywheel and clutch mods.. Any other suggestions?
  10. Hows it goin everyone, I've owned a dirt bike for about 1month 1/2 now, been practicing around my property, made a little jump (probably only about 1.5ft high), working on making a little rut to corner in, and have hit the trails twice (Mostly ATV trails, 1 or 2 single track). And even hit a little MX track at said trail. My question is, is what is the best technique to be hitting/going over obstacles such as tree logs, stumps or rocks? I have the basic ability to do a wheelie (popping clutch or power wheelies) and my biggest question is, do good riders pop the clutch to go over obstacles? or do they just gas it and keep weight to the back? I've been watching these "Enduro Kex" Guys on youtube, and watching them just do hill climbs and obstacles in the forest is so cool to me. I've noticed when hill climbing: be standing, good throttle (With 2 strokes they keep their RPM in their power band, how do I want to be doing this with a 4 stroke?), rear break control, very close to front of bike and leaning forward, and no fear. Am I understanding the BASIC concept of a hill climb or am I way off? I've noticed for clearing obstacles: be standing, either pop clutch / crack throttle (can't tell because of hand gaurds), weight to the back of bike just before / as you hit obstacle. Which is the best/correct technique for going over decent size logs/stumps/rocks? popping clutch or just giving gas. I've encountered a single log blocking the path on my few trail experiences, and the one I did come across was really small that I wasn't even worried about clutch/gas/leaning back, I just gave a little extra gas and went right over it. So, what is the correct / best / most efficient way to clear obstacles, do hill climbs, and is there anything I can do to improve my skill as a new rider (other than just keep riding and practicing what I'm weaker at) Riding a '04 YZ250F if it makes any difference to technique (4stroke vs 2 stroke(?) )
  11. SuMo Time: Braptasticly Motarded Supermoto Swarm Superfuntime Ride( SUPERMOTO GROUP RIDE -- last ride was 24 bikes) Ok, Supermoto Dundee Swarm™, IS IT INVIGORATING to go blast roads with a huge, glorious swarm of Supermotos with friendly Braptards™? YES! Does Supermoto-ing make you feel MORE THAN ALIVE??! YES! IT DOES! Will this be the last absolutely gorgeous weekend before the weather becomes less friendly? Who wants to take that chance of losing a perfectly gorgeous day to ride?! NOT YOU. NOT me. NOBODY does. NOBODY. Will the rest of the weekends before it gets uncomfortably cold be rainy days? Who knows. But, what if?!? You MUST ride NOW!! Will you REGRET NOT having ridden with a large crew of totally awesome Supermoto teammates? Yes. Yes, you WILL REGRET it! (And a recent very independent study done by Professor Joe PhD Wheeliester over at Braptard University™ shows you'd definitely be SAD -- Very sad. -- if you MISS THIS RIDE. Don't be SAD. COME RIDE. BE HAPPY. Is THIS SUNDAY, October 8th @ 10:00AM projected to be absolutely GORGEOUS Supermoto-ing weather? Why, YES! YES it is! YOU. ARE. IN. LUCK!! Do you remember when it was NINETY PLUS degrees this summer, and you were all, "OMG it's TOO HOT to gear up and ride!! (but i'm going to do it anyway because SUPERMOTO IS LIFE!)"???!! So... you DO remember longingly hoping for the exact riding conditions projected for Sunday October 8th 2017?? Well... it's HERE. That DAY is THIS SUNDAY. Do you even know how to find the Menards parking lot near mcdonalds, on Randall Road, in Carpentersville, IL which has fuel, food, coffee?? Doesn't matter. Ask UNCLE GOOGLE! He'll show you how to get to the start of your GLORIOUS Supermoto day. Thanks, Uncle Google. You should KNOW where HOME is. Home is Supermoto Dundee launch zone -- Menard's -- "Where you always save Motard$" Do you have friends who rides Supermotos who've not had the awesome experience of riding with the Supermoto Dundee Swarm™? Yes! YES you do! Bring them. Bring them ALL. (You wouldn't want them to question you later about why you left them high and dry. Excluded them? No! Include your fellow Braaptardz! You can't afford having a rift in your Supermoto friendship. BRING THEM. They might not know they need this -- they do. Do NOT leave it up to them. Bring them. Somehow. Must... get... to... launch... We WILL SEE YOU THERE! Stand-ups somewhere between 10:45 and 11AM, depending on if we know we're waiting for certain Braptardz™ to arrive who've said they are ON THEIR WAY, who'll be arriving in a REASONABLE amount of time. You need this couple of hours to FEEL TRULY ALIVE. Most of the time we're all back to launch by 2:30 / 3PM, but it just depends. The group is NOT a internet gawker group -- we're a group that actually RIDES -- we don't just TALK about riding -- we RIDE. So, if you RIDE, come RIDE. Don't join the group to be a lurker -- there are already a million groups you can join if you just want to be a lurker. A bunch of the guys use Sena intercoms, so if you have it, bring it. If you request to join the group and don't answer questions (designed to see if you actually ride, and are not just a lurker), and your profile doesn't seem tro indicate that you actually ride, you risk not being admitted into the group...

  12. SuMo Time: Sumotoberfest SuperSprechermoto SuMoSwarm w/ Friends Menards in Carpentersville, Illinois 10AM meet... SUNDAY: 52–72°Mostly Sunny THis is actually a combination of two groups meeting up... mostly backroads, twists, turns... Supermoto Swarm There are currently around 12 people in each group and more joining by the hour. We're avoiding gravel and offroad this time so we can include our Supermoto-challenged friends =D -- so bring a friend, or a 'backpack'. Yes, sometimes we go fast -- but the group waits for people to catch up. So, just come ride! While we, as a primarily Supermoto group, really love having as many supermotos as possible out on rides, bring your Supermoto if you have one, otherwise bring whatever. Bring a friend. I don't know how well a GROM would keep up. We've got KTMs, Suzukis, Yamahas, Husq, ducati, etc... Most of the time we're all back to the launch point by 2:30 / 3PM, but it just depends. http://www.sprecherspub.com/ The group is not a internet gawker group -- we're a group that RIDES -- not TALKS about riding -- but RIDES.

  13. 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
  14. Hi guys, Might be relocating to Germany for 2-3 years, having a hard time finding info about enduro riding in Germany? anyone have any info? ive found several MX tracks, but no enduro trails or info about them. been riding a 2 stroke 250 ktm for a while now and would be happy to continue there.
  15. Hey everyone, New member and totally new rider in general here. I bought my first bike a month ago, a 1986 XR250R. The previous owner says that he had just rebuilt the top end, and to my knowledge he was telling the truth. The carb is very clean and set to spec, it starts in a kick or two, cold or hot. My problem began today. I had been riding out in the woods on easy slow terrain for the first few weeks on my bike, but today took it out on a road to get home quicker. I rode for a few miles at 50-55 mph, which is the fastest I'd taken the bike so far. When I entered a town I pulled in my clutch to shift down, accidentally still had the throttle engaged a bit so it revved loud and then shut off completely. I rolled the bike to a stop nearby and could not get it to start again. Tried to let it cool off, kicked through with decompression pulled and fuel off just in case. Couldn't get it to start. Had to get hauled home, which sucked. Does anyone have any ideas of what might be going on? I'm at a loss and pretty bummed. Just want to ride the bike. Thanks!
  16. Well have just run a desert race and my favourite single trail bush tracks , one ride a piece and are completely sold on the tubliss system. Over rocks, wet logs, nothing seems to phase it. I am an older rider on a WR450 and straight up am able to get through the bush considerably faster. Need to do more testing because in the desert it started to feel vague above 90mph, suspension settings seemed to help but I think higher front pressures would have helped, still early days. Bottom line, better than tubes. No idea against Mousse, never used them. Will update as I stuff around with them

  18. 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?
  19. Tired of putting money into an old 2003 KX 250 that keeps breaking and isn't perfect for what I ride, has some upgrades but kills me every race from the suspension. I like the bike but just don't want to be the guy who puts $1000 into suspension to make it suitable. What does anyone think the best option would be? budget around $3000. 6ft 160lbs. Really interested in a crf 450x or a wr450, and I know it will be heavy for me to handle but I'm hoping the trail settings and suspension should compensate and still be better than my KX (and it would still be a fun powerful bike). Ideally I would want a 250f mx bike that already had the suspension work done, but that is rare. Is there a certain 250f to buy that would have the "best" stock mx suspension for the woods? Really want something reliable and newer (2006-2010ish) but I know I would be bored of a regular trail bike (KDX, 250x, TTR) after the first ride, and need something to be able to compete. I can deal with my 250 2Ts power but the 450x torque might be a bit much in the PA single track. KTM is an option, probably only a 2 stroke, but bikes newer than 2005 are fairly expensive and hard to come by. Any suggestions for a competitive woods bike for that budget would be great, thanks.
  20. I was wondering what would be the best trails for an amateur dirt bike rider? Trails with variety like tight trails, climbs, rocky, enduro stuff. Not just a straight wide line the whole time you know? Give me some options.
  21. For the launch of the 2018 Enduro models Husqvarna Motorcycles decided to visit Canada to experience the pioneering spirit. So we've invited 48 media guys from all over the world to Panorama, BC to test ride and experience the new 2-stroke fuel injected models.
  22. Hey Everyone, I just wanted to give everyone an update on how the Alta Redshift MX did at the RMEC Hard Rock Enduro in Colorado. Don was able to get a 2nd place finish (would have been first if not for a flat rear tire) in the A 50 + class and 17th overall. The bike was absolutely amazing on the technical rocky terrain. Race Info: 6 laps that averaged 23 minutes per lap a little over 2 hours of actual racing time Don was able to sneak in about 35-40 minutes of charging total using a 220v generator. Raced the entire race in Map 1 on the Alta The Alta does require a little more strategy for Longer format Enduro racing, but it is very competitive against gas bikes! Here is the link to the YouTube video of the race from Don's helmet cam.
  23. Hey everyone! I've been riding dirt for 26 years, but have never had actual "professional" instruction. Going to turn 39 this fall and getting ready to do my first enduro, hare scramble format. It will be at my local track I frequent often. Yesterday, I was there ripping around trying to pickup speed and ride faster. Here's me doing my best around the single track. Where can I improve? I know my biggest downfall is not carrying speed thru my corners. What am I doing wrong? Thanks for the replies in advance!
