xl500

I had an 82 XL500, bought it new in '83. That motor was pure magic. Put a 3" supertrapp on it, and it sounded fantastic. Put some commuter miles on it, and a ton of trail miles. One of my...

You've obviously got the suspension setup figured out. That's probably the best demonstration of a product at work that I've ever seen. I'll be callin'!

the real deal

Great video, and great effort. I got passed by the white bike twice, once on a fast section in the dark, and the other time Sunday morning in the rocks. That guy was haulin' the mail! :lol3

Yeah. Guess it's only money. Could have been worse. A few years ago one of my buddies ruined a tire, a tube and a wheel on this same ride. Hit a washed-out cattle guard at about 60.

Just my bad luck?

I put a brand new Scorpion A/T on the rear of my 990 just before a 280 mile mostly-dirt & gravel ride a couple weeks ago. There was one section, probably ten miles, of pretty nasty loose and...

Both the 150 and 450 conversions are nice. I started an xr200/rm125 project last year, but haven't gotten to spend much time on it in the last 6 months. This thread has got me wanting to get back...

Good words of wisdom on this thread. Off-road riding has long been my favorite way shut down the "inner conversation" for a while. But it's easy to get complacent. Case in point, in August of...

Thanks Atomic!

My new Dakars arrived today! I'd been dragging my feet on replacing my tattered old pair, but your sale pushed me over the edge. Great service. Thanks!

Classic

This was a real blow to my pride at the time - but it's pretty funny to look back on. I took my daughter out for a spin with her TT125. I decided to ride my wife's KDX 200 as the 520 EXC would be a...

Amen!

I bought 2002 883 with screaming eagle 1200 kit. Rode it a week and sold it. The Ford diesel I had at the time was more sporting.

no pic either

8" bridge spike in the rear tire of my 520 EXC. I'd already donated my spare tube to one of my buddies. We were 125 miles into a 200 mile ride and it was getting late; pulled the wheel, pulled the...

AC-10's

I've run the AC-10's on my 02 520 EXC, my 07 450 XC, and my 08 450 XCW. Reasonably priced and they seem to last pretty well. Actually, they are all I've run the past 5 or 6 years, so I'm not sure...

Thanks for the tips. I've already ordered the water pump seal and shaft, so I'll pull the clutch cover when I change it. I figured changing the seal now would just be good pre-emptive maintenance. ...

good point

Hmm. Guess I'll do the water pump seal while I'm at it. The oil was just changed, but I wasn't present at the time (that's another story) so I don't know what the oil filter looked like. Both...

Thanks

Thanks for the input, everyone. I bought this bike with 23k on the clock, and its been flawless up until this point. Two key things were mentioned, one was proper filtering, the other was ethanol. ...

Ever see a throttle body look like this?

My 2008 990 dropped a cylinder a few weeks ago. I finally got around to digging into it, and this is what I found. I sent the injectors off to an ultrasonic cleaning service, and pine-soled the...

flexy flyer

A soft windscreen with the shape and flow characteristics of your carbon fiber model seems like it would be a winner.

possible solution

I'm 6' so this isn't a problem for me, but for my wife, and kids, when they were young, a too-tall bike is a big deal. The best solution that I'm aware of is to send the suspension off to a quality...

External leak on Magura slave cylinder!?!

My 2007 KTM 450 XC has an EXTERNAL oil leak at the slave cylinder. Originally, I thought the leak was due to a bad hose from the master cylinder, so I replaced it and put in a new o-ring at the same...

Have you ridden a KTM 570? I have a 2Moto on my '07 450 XC, and it is a hoot, but more power would be nice. I rode a Thumper Racing-kitted 570 SX a few weeks ago, and I thought it put out a...
