I'm lost already

Please supply or direct me to the link to purchase Canadian back-country pass that is required.
Is that pass necessary for the first days' ride Friday?
Thanks,
Will

Hockey stick silencer?

Hockey stick silencer? What's that? I would like to eventually get rid of my original muffler and get a slip on, mostly to save weight and lower center of gravity. I believe the original exhaust pipe...

10-13 hours?

Greetings. I just signed up for this ride. I have not been on one of these rides before and even though I am in pretty good shape for an old fart I don't think I'm up for any 10-13 hour day rides on...

Revved up

Got it! One less tooth would help in lower gears, but make things more hyper at highway speeds wouldn't it?
It's simpler hang gliding. Been doing that since '95. Only shifting I do is with my body...

RPMs. How low can I go?

That's an idea. I'll have to ruminate on that. I like to ride slowly at times, so not sure if that will really affect what I want to accomplish, mostly because I am not sure what I am trying to...

RPMs. How low can I go?

Greetings. I find 3,000 RPM the point at which I will get quick power throttle response. I ride an '06 640 Adventure.
In 3rd gear I sometimes reduce revs to around 2500. Going down hill is...

Gasoline questions

Good info above. Thanks.
1. What grade gasoline do you folks run in your bikes? I ride a KTM 640 thumper and usually burn 92 or 93 octane.
2. I also store 10-20 gallons of "Stabilized" gas for six...

Mine won't kickstart

I have an "06 640. I can't get it to kickstart with a charged battery!
For that matter, it starts easily only when the ambient temp is high(read summertime). I think the issue is the headlights are...

Can you make one?

Maybe one similar from auto parts? I can't picture what it looks like. I have an '06 and will take a look at my gear when I get the chance. Bike is in unheated garage, 10 degrees or so currently in...

Idling way down means what?

My '06 640 has about 1200 miles on it. I have done nothing to it over the winter and gasoline is fresh. Now my idle has reduced to stalling when choke released. I turned idle screw quite a bit, and...

Lean on your horn

and make sure you have added a relay or new horn(s) to your bike to be as loud as possible. Those deer whistles never worked for me in New Hampshire and nothing works for moose.
