XR... What? Assuming XRL650

If the sand is firm, you will be fine.

I ride a 07 xr650l

Okay. Thanks for the tip. Assume the cold weather will have it firm. Ha, my ass will be stuck up the first hill. Looking back as you all laugh. Saw the rules posted, just need a flag. Guess the guys at the sand shop can hook me up.

You'll get the hang of it on the heavy bike. The first pic posted in this thread was us getting the feel for how much throttle to give to crest the dunes. Honestly, it's way safer to approach the crest in a parallel fashion, rather than perpendicular. You never know what is over the crest- an undercut, extreme descent or a giant dune buggy charging at you...

That's a lot more knob than I was expecting.
That's what she said

Care to share what Scat Trax charges for this service?

Well I gave $40 for the new tire from Eldon Rix at Cycles Unlimited in Pryor. Then I had to pay 30 freaking dollars to ship it from some office-supply UPS /FedEx shipping service center BS, they even charge me $10 for no box fee Then the cost from skat trak was $84 all in including shipping back to me. I guess I could've saved a few bucks by pulling off my old knobby but it was still in such good shape I decided just to leave it on and chop up the new one. Still cheaper than an engine rebuild;)

Awesome looking tire!

Thanks Tim. I'm really looking foward to trying it out, think it will really help smooth out the ride on those hard sections. I'll pimp out the little xr like a town bicycle for those that want to test it out. Now just need to make up a flag mount and mount the tire and clean off all the zombie and NYD hangover mud off
Hope everything works out so I can make it

So, how long were you there talking to him and what stories did he tell?

Me and old Eldon get along great, I know how to get out of there in a hurry when I need to
He is a real great resource to have in my hometown, he's helped me out with lots of machining projects and motor work. Great guy that likes to talk

Having now fully disassembled and reassembled a 2-stroke top end, I can see how one could screw the pooch and turn a runner into a non-runner.
Mine started up today just fine.

Can't do a test ride till my silencer gets here...
