    Mud screen ideas

    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?
  2. It’s been a muddy first few weeks of ownership with our new dirt bikes. We’ve found our drive chains completely encased in mud, or more specifically, Georgia red clay — which is tacky and persistent of the highest order. In reading some threads on cleaning chains, I have taken notice of advice not to use a pressure washer on O-ring chains. Oops. Didn’t know that (first time having such a chain). I am hoping just 3 washings so far won’t have done too much damage. But how else to get this level of mud off? Brush only? Pressure washer, but very carefully? (And if so, how?) I would prefer not to have to remove the chain to clean it if possible. Thanks!

    Funnest Ride of the year so far!

  4. If anyone rides Durhamtown or Highland Park today (or very recently), please post a mud level report with the date. I'm interested in mud conditions on both trails and tracks. The owners are naturally shy to report the truth and it's a long drive to get there! Thank you!!
  5. Has anyone noticed that the KTM fenders don't keep mud off of your goggles as well as others? Riding my 2016 yz250x back to back with my 2017 ktm 350xc I notice that every time my ktm front tire touches wet dirt, it is immediately transferred to my goggles. My blue fenders don't do that nearly as much. Is there a front fender available for ktms that is 10% bigger? I don't want a big goofy fender but something with additional coverage would be nice.

    RTW... going fine... BUT!

    Happy to report I have made it from San Diego, CA. to Kiev Ukraine via : US, Morocco, Spain, France, Italy, Croatia, Boznia-Herznegovina, Serbia, Romania, Moldavia, and Ukraine on my humble, albeit imminently capable, 2018 DRZ 400 SM. I got a new back tire in Sarajevo...150/60 Mita.. works great. Have encountered maybe a couple hundred miles of gravel pavement, a lot of wet roads, some mud, etc. So far so good. Having a great time. No serious challenges thus far. Lost a few times, soaking wet a couple, bike tipped over once or twice from the luggage load but nothing dramatic. Made a lot of friends along the way. I was able to get in some rock climbing in Rodellar spain, and did a road bike climb up the alp d'huez....both intense but not too bad overall. Spent good beach time in Spain, Italy, Croatia, and Ukraine (where there are so many gorgeous women I was apoplectic). I now have a bigger issue. I had my first real discussion with a Russian guy who knows the Road of Bones area very well in far eastern Siberia. My immediate problem is that I have street tires on this thing and need to get dirt tires on it. I can get to novosibirsk russia on what I have but from there I head south into Mongolia, and then back north to Yakutsk. I do hit these russian cities in route: Volgograd, Omsk, Chelyabinks, and anything along that road. There is a company here that can ship tires to most places in russia so I can get the tires if I can figure out which ones, rims? not so sure: http://motorezina.ru the real issue on the Road of Bones is likely to be mud and potentially lots of it (forgetting the river crossings which I think I have covered). So my question is this: I'm on the stock 17" rims. Can anyone suggest a known 50/50 dirt/road tire that can get me from novosibirsk into the road of bones area, and then maybe another pure dirt tire with an emphasis on mud for the road of bones itself? If thats not the case, I think I can make that decision easier by going to 19" rims? If I do that what tire would you recommend in 19"? finally it appears that I can swap in an S or E rim into a DRZ SM directly. I think I might have a hard time finding a suzuki dealer in Novosibirsk, what is the effort to swap in a 'generic' 19" dirt bike rim front and back? If I got a cheap 19" rim off of a yamaha for example how could I swap that out? I'm thinking I need to respoke it? Or am I lucky and there is some kind of standard in 19" dirt bike rims? lemme know your thoughts! Fred ps you can find me on instagram and see a ton of photos under Fred Covely or fcovely
