  1. Need shop recommendations

    PM sent
  2. I have a 2010 KTM530, a 04CRF250x, 99 TTR250, a 96 XR400 and a mid 2000 Polaris sportsman quad that all need maintenance done on them. Oil, check valves, adjust carbs. I called Veys but they won’t work on the older stuff I’d like to take them in today or tomorrow if possible only need one back for this weekend! any ideas? Mike

  8. Tusk Impact rims

    All the wheel sets I see say fit KTM from 2003, I have a 2002. Anyone know what the difference is? I thought all KTM hubs/rims were the same, it was just the spacers the were different, if so, can I just put my spaces on the new wheel set? I guess I should also ask if anyone has wheels that would fit a 2002 for sale, I'd be interested! TIA Mike
  9. Lessons I learned: Definitely camp there over the weekend - getting up at 5AM to drive down, do a hard ride, then drive back sucks Hydrate well - It was Hot, I ordered a Helmet Hands-free hydration tube, and it was awesome. I went thru 3 liters by mile 25, luckily we could refill at mile 28. Bet i was one of the very few that actually had to stop and urinate during the ride. https://goo.gl/yKqUzE Eat breakfast and take snacks on the ride - Another casualty of not camping there. I skipped breakfast and had no food for the ride, I was rode exhausted quite a bit. The toll road is much faster - I took the toll road down, and somehow screwed up and took the free road back, Not terrible, but probably another 20-30 mins added to the drive. Pace yourself - it is a long technical ride, make sure you have the endurance to finish it. Find a shady spot to rest a few minutes every now and then. Wear your crappiest outer gear - I ripped the knee off my pants in the first 10 minutes, both elbows had holes in them shortly after. That is the tightest single track covered with cactus and manzanitas that will poke, prod and stab you (I heard some guys got knocked off their bikes at times). Wear your best protective gear - If it wasn't for my knee, elbow and chest protectors, I'd have a ton of lacerations. Use a Mousse or Tubliss system, the cactus was abundant, and there was downed barbed-wire on the trail, I think it was from gates or fences that were temporarily down, I remember riding over it at 2 or 3 spots. Absolutely a great ride, I plan on camping Fri, Sat, Sun next year, and maybe wearing some old camo gear from goodwill for the ride!
  10. I'll be headed down with a friend.

  12.

I have truck/trailer, and live in La Mesa. Cheers, Mike

    Take a look at CRF230, TTR230 All well within your price range, better for the vertically challenged, and much lighter than the DRZ/XR great bikes, that will require minimum maintenance and a great step up from the TW. They will take you anywhere you want to go, and beg for more. If you are patient, you will even find a plated one in your price range. Cheers, Mike
  14. Sale

    Thanks for the post - I ordered a set as well.
