  1. Past hour
  2. Got my 950 used from another member here with a high fender kit installed and just have never been a fan of it. I'm a stickler about appearances and it just doesn't look right IMO with a high fender and I'd like to get it back to it's original form. And before I go any further let me stop you from telling me about the advantages of a high fender in mud because I can count the number of times I've encountered mud on one hand even if I was missing 4 fingers and a thumb. So if you've got a OEM 950 Adventure front fender laying around let me make you an offer. Or if you have a 950 with an OEM fender and want to trade for a complete high fender kit let me know. New fenders go for around $200+ so I'll be offering a little less just FYI. Looking for black or orange in color.

    The People You Meet

    I would say you are a people person, a gentleman, and proof that there are really good people out there. Just don't tell anyone I said that. K
  6. I think you would be disappointed with this, Mark. I am no speed demon, but I was pretty unimpressed with mine when I got it. Removing the smog, end cap plug on the muffler, reed valve setup and installing the JD Tuner really did wake the bike up. I've read that I probably picked up close to 15 HP by just doing these mods; that's pretty impressive if true and indicative of just how constipated these bikes really are. Like most things, we get told "we're gonna do this next year and nobody will be able to unlock/jailbreak it then"! Where there's a will there's a way.....

    CNC work needed

    Mostly lathe as of now. Kenny sent me a name Kurtis and I have done his suspension in the past. Talked to him and I am going to drop by his place on Monday. Thanks all!
  9. My SDAR brothers and sisters, Where is the best burrito in San Diego County (preferably close to Chula Vista, but I will travel for the best burrito in the county)? I am originally from Northern California and our Mexican food was different. I am not use to french fries in my burritos. I lived in California my whole life. I was 36 when I moved down here and never in my 36 years of living in California, had I ever heard of a California burrito. I grew up with and I like, carne asada, beans, rice, salsa, cheese, and guac. Where does this exist down here?
  10. Ugh, I just don't trust a dirt bike that doesn't have a kickstarter.
  11. Yesterday
  12. Appears to me they're finally getting it worked out. In 2014, the 500EXC (the finest motorcycle ever conceived by nonspecifichigherpower) ran horribly in stock CA configuration- way lean, etc. I have no problem riding a smog-legal bike if the performance is intact. I'm old and remember the smog of the '70s, and am about as green as an old codger can be.

    The People You Meet

    Ran into one of the Former owners of South Bay Motorsports today in the parking lot of Home Depot. He and his son were sizing up my Ridgeline truck and after the owner review of how it is the best truck in the county we moved on to motorcycles. I mentioned how the truck carries the motor receiver for my moto well and etc., etc. Talked some about the SDAR crowd and style of riding from Adventure to Single Track. He knows Mr. H from NCY and Robert from Veys obviously. Well, my point is just another gentlemen with his son in the parking lot. He is enjoying retirement! I found Jim to be cut from the same cloth. Good people are everywhere and I am learning that not every successful business person is a narcissist. Possibly folks are successful because they are People people. What do you think Mr. CID? P.S. Finished my window project

    CNC work needed

    Anyone have a cnc machine shop recommendation. Tried a couple shops but they are over booked or just not their cup of tea. I need some parts made. Runs of 50 to 200 units at a time. Mostly aluminum and would be great to use someone close by. Im in Alpine. Thank you, George@suspension101.com
  17. Hey Bags, It's an interesting point that this letter brings up! Most people don't need the "extra ponies" that the extra dollars can get from these new CARB approved engines provide. Personally, I'm one of those riders that short shifts and limits wheel spin (most of the time) so that I'm smother and yes... a little faster due to traction. A stock 2019 500 exc would have plenty of power for the style of riding that I do...but... that being said, having the ability (A Choice) to add a few high performance engine mods would be better! All to experience having my eyes pushed way back into my skull at speed... keeping my geriatric soul very young and very happy! Cheers! SCM
  18. Yep, so true Robert! I might be in the minority here...I enjoy the 450-500cc 4T's for the (primarily) desert riding that I do. I like the idea of having a "great dirtbike" that can be legally ridden on the street, only if to do so means that I don't have to dismount to push it across a road to continue on to the trail on the other side. I know that this is an extreme example; but if I wanted to ride 50% trail 50% road (true dual sporting), I would purchase a KTM 780 Adventure bike to do that... and it would be comfy smooth on the slab sections, but a real challenge in the tight technical stuff! That is why I like the small bikes best. I feel our sport can have it both ways with out searching for that elusive unicorn machine. Just depends where the ride will take us, and what bike will work best. I heard yesterday from my KTM Mechanic, that the CARB emissions folks along with the manufacturers plan (in the very near future) to "lock" the engine mapping on street legal trail bikes in a way that nobody (aftermarket) can adjust it from the stock factory settings. All this when bikes like the new WR can be map adjusted "on the trail" with a cell phone! Crazy dumb rules for the plated bikes IMHO. Here's to keeping your old bike in top mechanical condition! But hey, I road 400 plus hard miles in Baja this year on my 07 450 exc with a 50% plug of muffler packing at the end of the spark arrester and lived to tell about it, even smile about it 😎 Cheers, The Uncorked Mule
  19. Absolutely correct about the temp, Fly Lite Hydrogen White or Fly Kinetic Mesh vented gear, Klim Aggressor Cool 1.0 blue label base layers ( I use long sleeve shirt and long pants version). Also find shade when observing! lots of water and some electrolytes mixed in (RynoPower hydration fuel) . No worries we are 12 month a year riders. For sure I need to buy a Trials helmet rather than my full moto helmet.
  20. WRs have been street legal in other countries for years just not in our over regulated land. All the bikes that compete in the World Enduro Championship (enduro bikes) are street legal models and always have been . Yes all those full race edition team bikes have plates on them and are registered with local DMV (EU countries for the most part).

    Cool Place to check out, and great history too! The area is really interesting, worth reading about for sure. However, as others have made reference too, the ebb and flow of ownership, actual operation, legality, and functionality has made it a go and no go depending upon the year. Before twisting the throttle, I have mountain biked it a bunch both up and down. It is also a popular hiking spot for many of the local san diego Meetup hiking groups. Among the many famous stories from the trail, I was always amazed at the mountain bike bill's clip of a fella who rode a tricky section quite unsuccessfully, but came away undamaged. It might be at the bottom of this web page, but it may be able to be found elsewhere. I have ridden that section "no touch", but I wouldn't these days. When I used to ride it a bunch, many of the tunnels weren't locked shut, they were caved in, so you had to go around on tight single track, which was pretty cool. http://www.mountainbikebill.com/CarrizoGorge.htm Miles Todd Crash Video ____________________________________________________________ Hike to the Infamous Goat Canyon Trestle near Anza Borrego State Park - Meetup "take a hike"
