Yogoi's 950-zero/Baja-two

So, there I was.... pushing the bike back to camp at Scorpion Bay when the bike died on me while I was taking a joy ride out to the point. Having had the fuel pump go on me once before, I was able to find the problem with the first quess.

Flashback: some of you may remember my ride report (meeting the people of Mexico) where the bolts worked there way out of the rottor and destroyed my stater. That was the first 950 trip to baja, We were able to get it going and limp back across the boarder.

So now the question. Do I try to get a pump sent to me (to Loreto), or do I cut the trip short and have the bike trailered out with some surfer guys leaving in a couple of days? Also, I was told there was a mechanic in town who could look at it, what ever, I dought he can fix a bad fuel pump but, what the hell.

Since even a bad day is a good day in Baja I decided to go surfing.

See the litttle black dot in the middle. Thats me taking a nice long ride. The waves aren't that big but they go forever and are alot of fun.

Now to get back to the point of this thread. while surfing I decide to have the bike trailered to San Ignacio and then stay there if I can have the part shipped to me.

None of that maters though, becouse the next day Oscar (the guy I gave the pump to to be fixed) had me up and running. What the hell. how do you fix a fuel pump? We'll store this one in your memory bankes. Oscar opened it up and found that the points were misaligned. Easy fix. I didnt even know the fuel pump had points. I gave Oscar 7 bucks and took his boy (who loved motos) for a ride (I think I scared the hell out of him).

So my 950 has broken down the two times it went to Baja, but if you look at the glass half full, you can see that in both cases it was able to be fixed and riden back home.

Heres some pics of out trip









Long Live ADVrider.

Ya, theres a single screw holding on the cap. It comes apart quite easly. I also didnt cut the clamps KTM uses to clamp the fuel hoses on. I just pulled off the hoses w/ the clamps on. it was a bit of work to put them back on, but I didnt have anything to replace the clamps (just another "for your information").

Was it you??

Yogoi - Great report Love the scorpion shot.

Were you in San Felipe on Saturday after the 1000? We were getting tacos at the stand across from the Pemex station. I saw a couple on a 950 GO!!! bike pulling out of the station but I had no way to get your attention. Was it y'all?

Ya, I was real happy with the scorp's on this trip (I use TKC's & Mich. Deserts mostly). Riding two up and with all our campng gear, I didnt feel we needed a nobby. We road alot of dirt roads (The low road from scorpion bay to San Ignacio, El Arco to San Fransiquito to Bay of LA. to the San Borja mission and out to the mx1). We took the sandy wash across from Playa Hermosa to see the race. That was some deep sand and it got real interesting do to the weight, but becouse of the weight I think the scorp,s dealt with it just fine. I wish I had video of us switching back and forth two up, fully loaded through that sand. It would provide some quality entertainment.

Fuck That.

Your glass is overflowing. You've been able to ride in Baja twice and you have good stories to boot.

Life is good.

I was mainly down there in support of Pit 5.



I had the bike with me but it was in the bed of Fresno's F-350 from Fresno to SF and back. I didn't get a chance to do much riding on this trip.



I remember you saying in Ouray you were planning on going down to Baja with your girlfriend to surf and watch the race. Funny we almost ran into each other..

I believe that was GForce Junky refueling the BMW Mexico HP2.

I was working the camera until Jonah came in on the BMW USA HP2

Thats a good memory! Too bad I didnt see the 950. I would have stopped to say hello if I had. I'm sure we'll run into each other again some time. My next trip will be to the DVDaze.

That's interesting... I didn't think Jonah got passed until the whoops past Puertos. Where's this pit at? Jonah got the bike from Bo at 220 with a failed shock, but didn't think it needed to be replaced. As he said "I road it like a poodle..."

I ran the pits at Ojos, K77, 200, 400, VdT (540), and then Ojos again at around 1:30 in the morning... so I'm currious as to when the Mexican team got ahead of the US guys. I know they were 15 minutes behind at 200 when we changed both ends, and then 15 ahead at 400 when Jimmy got back on.


Thanks!
