I'm sure there is some technical descriptive name for that part but I don't know what it is. It's the side where the brake and the kickstarter are. I've got to pull the 8-10 screws that hold the outer shell, clean off the old gasket, place the new one, replace the oil seal around the kickstart shaft, and then put it all back together without cross threading any of the screws.

Oh, I'm sorry. I was talking about the top end thing. I thought those bikes had the jug facing forward.

Oh, I see, you're right. In my head I was thinking about the side case gasket.
Doh.

Thank you DOD. I always wanted the group to grow so others could be able to communicate with other riders and have fun (rides, parties, meetings, lessons). And YARDSTICK, yes I can always watch the videos & wanna be there too.

There was one time that we put on a riding lesson of sorts for riders that were just beginning. One guy said "you know this is the coolest ever. No one anywhere helps other riders like y'all do". I was very proud of you senior (not OLD) riders helping those that only had beginning skills.

Keep talking guys and gals.... ride on & God Speed my friends

Hey guys, I'm a rider from NJ. I am visiting the Phoenix area with my kids in late April and would like to rent a couple of dirt bikes for a day while we are out there. Can any of you recommend a local rental shop? Many thanks for any advice you can offer!

Heya guys, I was showing my two boys (8 and 11) videos of what can be done on a 50 and a 110 on a closed course and they were thinking it might be fun to try a race or two. I searched for a while on the internet but came up dry. Anybody have any leads for the Phoenix area?
Their Grandpa said we can take the tractor and construct a course in one of the back fields so I'm going to give that a try this summer so they can have someplace to practice.

Hey All,
Just bought a bike and am looking to explore AZ on day rides. I tried to send an e-mail to the yahoo group, but it got kicked back. Any formal communication for group rides or just this thread?

Thanks for any info,
Cameron

This thread is a good place to start. There is also an east of Phoenix thread and a NW Phoenix thread. Usually, if someone is leading a ride, they will post in one of these three threads or dedicate a new thread focused on just that ride.

What kind of bike did you get?
Where are you located?
What's your skill level?
When can you ride?

Answer those and it will really help determine what group might be your best fit.

You need to get that thing out to the sand dunes.
