  1. I put another Camso DTS 129 kit on my brother in law's 2008 CRF 450X that he traded a cow/beef for. While the CRF is 9 years older than the 2017 RR-S 500, the RR-S is just superior in every way. I'll do a review either later in this thread or I'll start another one but at least for today, today was the best riding I have ever done. Ever. It was like my entire life was practice for all the pure powder riding we did on the snowbikes today. I love dirtbiking, it has always been the most fun thing I can do but now snowbiking has taken over as it combines the fun, the shifting, all the positives of the dirtbike but with none of the jar and jolt, no roots, rocks, holes, whoops, just soft, cushy snow to power on through or up, or down. It is the addiction to beat all addictions and the best part is that all I can do is look forward to the next day to ride, before I know it, winter will be over and we can ride the dirt again and not be so cold while doing it. I got a RotoPax 1 gallon tank, then got a 2 gallon RotoPax storage box and the extension to make the storage box tighten down with the twist on clamps-which I've been loving. It makes using the gas can and the storage just so easy and the hard mount is fantastic. We had ridden about 20 miles and I had emptied almost the entire gallon into the bike so I now know that I can go about 40 miles on a tank and will be able to go 20 miles on the gallon of reserve in the Rotopax. Generally, the track kit is sucking 50% of the power as I might get 50 mph on the trail, maybe 55 or 60 top speed, and while I get about 40 mpg on the street/trail, I'm getting 1/2 of that in/on the snow, which is no problem, just that everything gets cut by 1/2 on the snow. Stock for stock, all the Beta's controls, and how the bike feels, at least on the snow, is way better than the Honda's. The CRF450X is carbureted and does not have a hydraulic clutch, and as it does not have either a quick turn throttle or jimmy twister, the entire bike feels so crude compared to the RR-S. The 2008 Honda has also been ridden very easily its entire life as evidenced by how clean the motor is. My motor, from going through all the puddles, mud puddles, swamp puddles, every kind of dirty water has gotten onto my motor and has stained or etched the metal unlike the CRF that is almost showroom clean despite being 9 years older than the 2017 Beta. Oh well. One area where both the bikes are more equal is in power. The Honda has great power but I also feel that the Beta could take it in a dragrace or any kind of roll-on, either way, my BIL and I agreed that we do not yearn for more power with either bike. More tomorrow.

  4. Hey all, When I was considering buying a sled kit for my drz I tried to find info on somebody else doing it but with no success. So I thought I would make a little write up on how it rides. This was my first ride on the mototrax kit, and was possibly the most fun I’ve ever had on the bike. On the trail it wants to follow other tracks pretty bad but is very manageable. Gearing is super low on the kit, I was wound out doing 57 in fifth gear. Being late in the season I wasn’t able to find any powder it was all soft sugar but she did far better than expected. I found third gear mid range to be quite comfortable on it. Sidehilling was a dream, if you wanna turn up or down the hill it felt the same as on flat. Anyways if your on the fence bout buying one just go buy it you’ll never regret it.

  6. Since snowmobile season is over, I figured that I would service my high mileage 17' Timbersled 137 LE. New chain, sprockets, Hyfax, re-grease suspension, repack bearings, the like. I figured since stock sprockets lasted over 200 hours that the rest of the kit would last at least at long. Here's what I found: The double bearing holders (picture directly above) has two bearings one side sealed, and the open faces together on the inside. Since the bearings are only a slip fit in the holder and a slip fit on the jackshaft, water can still get inside the "sealed" bearings. Once bearings don't have lube they tend to not spin as well, see jackshaft: The jackshaft is a $120 part from timbersled and luckily bearings with seals on BOTH sides can be had for around $1.80 apiece on fleabay https://www.ebay.com/itm/6205-2RS-Premium-Sealed-Ball-Bearings-25-x-52-x-15-Qty-10-2-Side-Rubber-Seals/382787894498?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D56922%26meid%3Df14e67605db1417eb5dd47d316526626%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D15%26sd%3D111755775484%26itm%3D382787894498&_trksid=p2481888.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3A5fa4f0af-5e6a-11e9-a9c9-74dbd1802254%7Cparentrq%3A1a0467f516a0ab1da8551ea6fffc0d7f%7Ciid%3A1 I would advise anyone with an older, higher mileage kit to take theirs apart and replace the bearings before they become like mine and ruin more things! It was still a great season and I rode the shit out of it. https://www.instagram.com/p/BvrqhIlBOUc/?utm_source=ig_web_button_share_sheet
  7. Timbersled™ Announces Another Innovation – Timbersled TRIO™ Front Suspension Dirt Bike-Like Performance, Handling and Control Minneapolis, Sept. 18, 2017- Timbersled™ today announced, the brand fueling the rapid growth of snow biking, is taking the experience to the next level with the all-new Timbersled TRIO™ front suspension. A first in the industry, the innovative TRIO system makes it even easier and more cost-effective to convert a dirt bike to-and-from a snow bike. Once installed, it also provides the ultimate in control and handling. Dirt bike owners will appreciate the quick-and-easy, bolt-on design which means more time is spent on the trails and back country than in the garage. A full install can be done in less than 30-minutes making the conversion to-and-from dirt to snow and back even easier. The system is also cost effective as the stock forks no longer must be retuned or rebuilt – saving more than $500 the first year. TRIO also provides improved control, handling and comfort due to the front suspension shock’s dual-rate air spring that provides indefinite adjustability for all riding levels, terrain or personal style. The shock also counters rider fatigue by eliminating bottoming out and decreasing diving, and minimizes impact to the ski due to increased lower fork protection. TRIO is compatible with all snow bike kits as long as the ARO spindle and ski are used. It also attaches to most brands of dirt bikes. The system retails for $899.99 and requires an install kit depending on bike type. It will be available at Timbersled dealers and online in September. About Polaris Polaris Industries Inc.
