  1. SPOT-X

    Same here.
  2. DOT Rear Knobby

    Been running this on my 500. Definitely a good tire in the sand; much better in the sand then the equilibrium and lasts longer too.
  3. We'd be able to make it to the start in time if we go down in the morning?
  4. I'm in. Hopefully I can hook up with some of you guys-don't have my boy going with me this time.
  5. First ride with a Recluse

    Did you ride it without the special washer? Just wondering if you noticed much difference in engagement or anything.
  6. 300 Top End Advice

    I've heard those nikasil cylinders are pretty tough. Looks like you stuck a ring and that's why its so hard to start. Might be able to just acid wash the cylinder? Not sure who could do that.

    Sluago said that their experience with tubliss down in baja was that they don't hold up to extended slabbing either.....
  8. First ride with a Recluse

    So after work today I went out to McCain to check out the Rekluse I installed on my 300XC. I went thru the run-in procedures per the manual to set the actuation. I don't know if it's because of the Belleville clutch on my bike but it was REALLY hard to find a good setting for that thing. It was super sensitive to adjust; just one change on the hash marks made a notable difference!I had to set my idle really low to get it to engage well and not slip. I messed around with the slave adjuster a bunch to get it working. With the idle set so low the bike would stall if I hit the brakes hard. I found if I kept just the littlest bit if throttle that would prevent it from dying. However, if I turned the idle up any higher the bike would start to creep when I stopped. I tried installing the lighter springs into the exp pak ( since they included them) but that made it worse. Recluse suggests installing the Ktm hardparts aftermarket Belleview spring if you want a more "aggressive" engagement. I'm assuming that's a stiffer spring and that might allow me to up the idle? (But then I might not like the engagement). I did notice that the problem lessened noticeably after riding for about an hour.I now find that I can run second and third gear where I was using first and second before. Its kinda fun to be able to stop halfway up a hill in second gear and then just roll on the throttle and keep going. I can even start the bike in gear without the clutch pulled in.There's definitely a learning curve. I have to keep reminding myself that I don't have to keep covering the clutch anymore, and on the flipside, now that I'm not coasting thru the turn with the clutch pulled in I have to be careful with my throttle because I'm "driving" thru it now .All in all I'm pretty pumped about this addition!

    Hmmmm, does it have to be a plated bike for this ride?
  10. My new ride

    I know that Skeeters motorsports has some of those GasGAS IN stock.
  11. Texas road trip

    Nicely done Pete!
  12. McCain today. Chocolate dirt. 50 degrees. Perfect conditions:-)
  13. I'm planning on going to McCain Sunday after church. Should be there by noon.
  14. If it doesn't rain anymore, the race should be epic!
