XMOTO, I run a 13/53 on the 390 and cannot pull 6th gear on the hardpack snowmobile trails.
What do you think your top speed is on the snowmobile trails in 5th with your gearing.

I have no idea about the Ice, just saw linkandcuff's post that he is riding the lake. Last weekend the sleds were going across and I saw a few Ice fisherman on the lake. I am too cautious on lakes to be the first.

roughly 6inches as of last week. The ice is shity now with the temps being up.....I wouldn't plan on going there until it gets cold again. The track is flooded from the snow melting

Wanted to come down on Sunday. Guess it's a no go then.

I've been too sick to get any riding in since the beginning of December, but the ice was cored today, and it's at 13 inches, so if you guys pitch in for the shipping, I'll send you a few inches.

Going on the weekend, and going to try out the new tire I built. It's a beauty. I shaved about half the knob height, and profile it as well. Two liners, and over 500 1 1/2" screws.

That cold is a bastard, I've been fighting it for a month now.

We built a small track since we all have smaller bikes (250cc). Right now its good but with the warm weather coming its going to get soft. If you lived closer I would say maybe but its definitely not worth it if you live in VT. If the weather were to stay cold we will build a real track. There is a lot of snow and slush on the lake right now so its a lot of work.....we had it sooo good last year!

Here is a pic of the track today. It got hot enough to melt the top layer and freeze again but it would have broke apart if we tried to ride on it.



Here I am the night we made the track

Hey Crank, do you have pics of these tires with the automotive studs, and how long do you think they'd last on pavement?

We did a DS ride a few weeks ago and rode a decent amount of pavement and gravel roads and I didn't loose any studs. The car studs are the best compromise so far, longevity vs. performance I think.

I'll take a pic this afternoon

Nate. I have been using Automotive studs on my GSA for a few years now. This pic is of a front Heidenau when new last year.It now has just over 5K miles besides a little scalloping the tire and studs look the same. The rear on the other hand is missing about 50% of the Studs in the center of the tire. I do not glue the Auto studs. and they fall out because the tire wears down and wears out the studs. I used 11mm studs front and rear on those tires, my next rear will have longer studs so they last as long as the tire.

The TKC studded front would be toast at 5k and rear 3K

Nice, and I take it you get enough traction to stay upright on glare ice?
