I tell my wife I ride nice and mellow....which is kinda true, but we have a local open track close to the house...when I head by there sometimes I get a little "less" mellow Especially on a sunday ride after watching saturday night supercross This is shaping up to be one of the best supercross seasons I've ever seen.....just awesome

So the rears don't last long? The shop said it was one of the longer lasting knobbies for dualsport use.....I hope it lasts awhile They match most online prices I can find, and give me $10 tire swaps when I buy from them, plus other nice discounts since I've been shopping there since the day they opened...very cool little local shop

Right on Glad the simple fix worked...the fuel screw has a lot more effect than folks think, I know I overlooked it for a long time. Glad you got a nice bog-free ride in

Tonight it's a glass of Pinot Noir with the wife...

Most nights it's a good, local micro Pale Ale

Somebody said a few pages ago you can't make this stuff up. They're right. You can't. Good shape..,except? WTF?

http://mendocino.craigslist.org/mcy/3620542687.html

High siding and catching your foot while scrubbing=not good. He had another hard wreck and hit his head hard for a second time on the night. It has got me really thinking about this very interesting new helmet the the Geico boys wear. Finally, some progression in head suspension. Before it was cool, but very expensive, now I'm thinking, $800 is not too bad I would like to see some good lab tests on it though, the last time I saw good lab testing done on helmets an $89 Pep Boys helmet kicked ass on the big boys (Shoei, Arai etc.) Not saying it was comfy, pretty, quiet or that the fit 'n finish is good, but is was a good head suspender.

I wanted to ask you guys, or anybody else running a Keihin FCR carb, can I just take the Keihin jets out of my stock CV carb which is jetted for my altitude, and stick them in my FCR and still be jetted close?
Or do the FCR's require drastically different jetting than the CV carbs?

The jetting I am running is 45 pilot whith a 175 main, needle in stock 450 position. This is for sea level as we only can get abuot 1400 feet elevation here. The 45 pilot is one size up from stock 450 and is okay for here but will need 42 for upper cali desert to run clean at idle.
The cv carb acually uses bigger jets than fcr will need.
