Part II

Part II of the spanish lakes 4x4 trail. This is the "loose grade" portion that took me approx. 30 mins to get to the top of....I cut out all the stopping to catch my breath & is 95% forward progress

Wow, that is both painful and hilarious to watch.

I didn't realize how close your handlebars got to my head in a few spots!

not to be a now it all, but it sounds like u still have the highway gearing on? 15-46?

try a nice large rear sprocket or drop 2 in the front!

LOL, 15-46 is my Dual Sport gearing, I have a 14 CS for the dirt & a 16 CS for the highway. Stock was 15-42. I can get a 13 CS for the 520 chain but havent tried one yet, seems like it would be rubbing the Swingarm slider pretty hard. I think not having a worn out shinko 244 on the rear would have done wonders for my climbing ability too

LOL, 15-46 is my Dual Sport gearing-that's what I used to use on my 650L for the highway
it may seem crazy , but most of us run 13-51+ up on the mountain, allows for ALOT more throttle control and better traction!
I think the swing arm will be ok with a 13

I'm running 16/45 on the 640, it climbs like a goat and cruises down the hiway @ 70MPH! It's the torque! Not the gearing......And yep, 13/51 on the woods bike.

Great riding with you guys on Sunday, I didn't take very many pics but I'll post up what I did take. Good seeing you again Justin and Greg and it was nice meeting ya Dave.

I battled a bald back tire all day in the loose, silty, funky assed dirt that day and as long as you had a little momentum it wasn't too bad. If you messed up and had to start mid-hill is when it got interesting . Best moment of the day was getting passed by the mighty XT as I sat there and spun my back tire trying a mid hill start, DoH! haha.
