Looks awesome!

I go snowboarding and dirt biking the day after eachother.. Good fun!


Yup, ceramic coating is what I'm thinking. Just need to take the pipe off and get it done. My buddy did it on his /Berg whom are known for shitty problems and he said it helped tremendously.

High idle

I have a question about my BRP. The bike starts and runs great. I has the stock carb that was jetted by the previous owner. When the bike warms up the idle hangs up to high. If I let the clutch out a little to load the engine it will come back down but if I blip the throttle it hangs up again. Any ideas.

Yes: adjust a bit more play into the cables, and/or clean & lube them.

Stainless headers?

Worn slide linkage, it wears pretty fast.


Header wrappers...wrapped the mid-pipe to protect my leg on a TE610, the pipe cracked and blew out shortly after I wrapped it, holds in too much heat IMHO.

Most of the snow is gone, but there is still some on the forest roads that aren't plowed in the winter. Some lakes still have 20 inches of ice on them. Here are some pictures from yesterday.

You can see some remanent pieces of ice here.


Some snow on the trail yet.


This was last week:

Damn..

Even we are ahead of you guys this season.

Little to no snow. You have to head into the mountains to find it with elevation.

Building up the motor on the BRP

I'm looking to get more power out of the bike(I ride from 5000' - 10000'). The elevation takes a toll on power output. I would like to turn the bike into a lightweight adv/dual sport bike. I'd like to run 15/45 gears. Maybe a rekluse to help the tall first gear. I don't plan to be riding too much single track with it, but might be nice to if I fun across a great trail somewhere.

Currently planning to build up the motor on my BRP. Thinking about doing the following:

-XRsonly 11:1 coated piston
-HRC Cam- found one, hopefully it gets here soon, if not I guess I will go with the first Web cam listed on their site
-Kibblewhite black diamond valves and springs- Going stock size
-New cam chain
-Changing from Big Gun full system to XRsonly LE race system with the reverse megaphone design.

Any advice on the above?
