enduro

i'm not able to go to the enduro this weekend , but if i have anything that someone might need for the race just pm me and i''ll see how to help.
good luck to those who are racing, and make sure of who you will be with on your row, if you want to ride the enduro and others want to race it,... just ask so that all know whats going on prior to the start.
it's sounds like a fun ride so enjoy yourselfs.

Took the bike out to put some time on it so I can do the 3 hr. service. (Still runs like crap at idle and wont e-start) While out in the north 40 here on post I was able to break my right side mirror and kick off my left rear turn signal.


So my first question is what brand and where should I get the new rear mirror and the rear turn signals. I think I saw someone mention low profile blinkers for the back. That seems to be the ticket. If I had known that the turn signals were so easy to boot off I would have given them a wrap of 100mph tape to at least let them hang a bit before being sent into the woods with out any protest.

I was also looking at the JD jet kit versus the one that Blais racing put out. Has anyone used the Blais kit. It comes with a Air/ Fuel Mixture Screw that the JD kit does not have. Seems this would be better to put on so the small adjustment stuff after you have the carb put back on.

Oh by the way Mr. Turtle says hello to everyone.

Any good local sources for bars? The DR needs some taller bars with the quickness.

Steve, Kiley's had several sets of bars hanging on the wall last time I was in there, you'll probably want something along the lines of an ATV Hi bend, several mfgs offer them in both steel & aluminum--figure $25 or so for steel bars, and at least double that for aluminum.

Or you can try bar risers, you can get em on ebay for $27 right here:

And FWIW, 1.5" of rise may not sound like much, but it makes a big difference...

I like the mini turn signals from Rocky Mountain ATV & M/C for about $10. they ain't fancy, but they definitely flex, are pretty bright and can be repaired when broken. The ones I have are not LED. They have several models; faux carbon fiber, black, etc...

rear mirror

"Originally Posted by extsieg: So my first question is what brand and where should I get the new rear mirror"


Lotsa choices here, but I have recently adapted two small mountain bike mirrors to my KLX; $13 each...probably won't work on every bike. I mounted mine to the handguards in such a way that I could easily remove or they do fold down if I hit something...

You know watching a few moments of the vid from today I have to say that Vic and I have shared the same experience:

!) We have raised our sons on racing
2) We love them unconditionally
3) Whenever they choose to pull the trigger they are as fast as anyone..Double A for sure.
4) Row 36!!!!
Life is good!

Happy Labor Day You FFs!

Turn Signals

I have some very similar to THESE on all four corners of my KLR250.
Very Bright & they will bend just about 90degs because of the rubber stalk.

I had some that looked like that on the DRZ a while ago and the first time I kicked em getting on the bike they were gone. I wouldn't recommend doing that.

Last year I smacked a tree hard enough to bust the fairing in several places & knock the forks out of whack. It did bust one of the lens but I stayed on the bike & still works.
There were the cheap non led, hard plastic mini stalks on the 250 when I bought it. They would break by just looking at them. I can't remember the brand I replaced them with but I would by another set in a heartbeat. The owner of Cycle Service in Dothan ordered them for me. He has the same ones on his bike.

I promise you, you will not break the ones I have by kicking them

More vids on Monday Ride

Here is vid #2.

You must all forgive the stuff at the beginning and end of each vid. I did not take the time to cut it out. Just fast forward through it.

Enjoy! Or not. You really don't have to watch it. Just guys goingh through the woods.

BTW we got checked at Spec pond for permit and license. Its seems the norm now rather than the occasional. He actually looked at each permit and put a face and name together. Real nice guy though.
