Did you take the stator out and take a peak? Bad wire in there? Stator output?

I think I have it narrowed down to a possible defective CDI. Anyone have a running 450 I could bring my cdi to and test on? Tonight would be fantastic if possible. I am trying to get this bike ready for our series' first race in about a week....Thanks guys!

I hadn't watched my video for a while. Thanks for bring'n back the memory's.

When I laid my bike down like that, the tank suction-cupped itself to the mud and I almost wasn't able to upright it again. What a day (and night). Awsome that your group took it as a challenge, and are ready for more (bummer bout the wrist though).

BTW, after my event, I bought a SPOT.
Thats funny About the spot, as soon as we got home the wife said.....order a damn spot

I will never (willingly) ride through mud like that again, at least not on a bike that can't be replaced - like a KLR

At one point, it took us 2 hours to travel 200 yds up a 2% grade - and that was on the graded county road. Mud was like bowling balls

Awesome pictures!
Its funny you mention the brake lines. Looks like I have a front I need to buy as its leaking at the banjo crimp:mad:

Im done with mud:

It's to sit on. It's like Charmin compared to the KTM seat.

Thanks, I was going to give this a go soon. I think I'll wait a few weeks for things to dry out and work on that high fender conversion that I have been putting off! A 520 EXC ride out of Moab seems to make more sense.

OHV clubs?

Hey guys,
What OHV club(s) are working to keep our trails open in Utah? I don't belong to any at this time, and am out of the loop with our trail access issues....want to fix that.

Thanks!

Blue Ribbon Coalition[BRC] is also a very active group. Also, if anybody is interested in trials there is a Utah club meet on 4-20 at Jordan River ORV Park which is in the SLC area by the 215 north loop.Fun to watch and a challenge to ride.
