I was sorry I called your FJ an FZ. Now I'm sorry I didn't call it a POS with an orange tumor on the back.

Lol! Remind me not to drink out of your water bottle!

And it's called "Radiant Red" not orange I'll have you know.....

I meant the orange tumor on the hitch hauler.

My offroad skill level is NOT advanced so the bulk of the riding will be beginner to intermediate - I'm not looking to be hucking off 30' drops (although I could do one, once ) or anything like that.

I do not know the trail system well enough to be a very good guide, so it would be great to get a few regulars together and just get out and have a good time. Also, if the weather ends up being sucky, I'd rather postpone it...the last time I went down there it was 45 and pouring rain and truthfully that is a weekend I'd rather forget! Don't want to do that again....

I'll be on a KTM 530.
Bump. The weather forecast is calling for 100 degree temps both days, so it may make sense to look for altitude to get that down a bit. Any ideas?

You can call it anything you want. Still is what it is.

There can be.

I have a jetting question, I am a carb newb. I never rejetted the DRZ after moving from a few hundred above sea level. In fact, I never rejetted it after I bought it from someone in Mississippi and shipped it to Michigan either.
It runs ok, but when I give it a lot of gas, for example trying to go up a steep trail, or over a tall step, or tree it will hesitate. Also, it smells like fuel a lot, but it could just be that it's so hot when I ride often. I haven't fouled the plug, and it always starts fine, idles fine.
Is there something I should adjust, move the needle up or down, or say some magic words? I honestly don't know that much about carbs and I would like to learn, and you lot are the only people I know to ask.

I've been invited on a four day ride in Idaho, and I want to make sure the bike is as ready as it can be, and this is one problem that bugs me sometimes. It doesn't prevent me from riding, but I worry sometimes that it's going to be a problem at high altitude one day. The higher I go, the worse it is.

I put a dynajet kit on mine years ago. It got rid of the low speed stumble. I can't begin
to remember the settings. Just that I spent a whole afternoon dicking with it to get it right.

You should be leaner at this altitude. Try dropping the main a size or two. From the factory
they are lean on the needle so it may fine at SLC levels.

Bitches,

I have confirmed that I have days off in September; the 7th through the 19th, to be specific. I am considering a ride to Bend, OR as there is a little KTM gathering going on at that time, but could easily be persuaded to hang out with scum like you instead. I am very open to any ideas for rides at that time and can bring the 300, the SFE (Super Fucking Enduro), the soon to be picked up 500 XCW, or all three.

Awaiting your reply.

Sincerely,

The handsomest Utard in Lubbuttock, TX

I could probably roll out the BRP and ride a day on each side of a weekend...
