I've only been down the "road" to Chiva falls a little ways once in my Tacoma a long time ago. Is this road safely doable with a Tiger 800?

Depends on where you go in and mostly, how good a rider you are. We have had a couple guys do it on 1200 HP's, one did a fair amount of damage, one rode it like he was on a 250. I would say if you go slow it is very doable.

Too much breakable plastic. If you go in at the 11-12 mile marker you can get back to the Y that goes either to Chiva or back out the way of the Slot. Cathy and I have had our GSs back this way and it's fun.

Going on to Chiva would be your decision from their and you can gauge it by the ride so far. Heading down to the river would also be a nice turn around point. From there in to Chiva it picks up a bit.

I wouldn't recommend going back out the through the Slot, you might be okay coming in this way at about the 7-8 mile marker.

Have fun and let us know how it goes. Let's see some photos. Skip

I just did the ride on Tuesday - also did the loop above the falls - would not attempt on anything but a light dirt bike.

Happened again!

Some of you may remember a few years ago when a group of us where riding out south and my DR650 pretty much came to a stop and had to be put it the back of Drizzt's pickup. Turned out to be a bug got into the main jet and was starving the engine for fuel.

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...ostcount=27651

Riding with my girlfriend last weekend and she started having similar issues with her KLR250. Had to ride the last couple of miles home with the choke on full. Just pulled the carb apart and found basically the same thing. My question is how do these guys make it into the float bowl? Both bikes have good inline fuel filters. The entry point into the float bowl from the overflow circuit is not much bigger than a pin-hole. These guys breed and spawn in gasoline and then grow inside the float bowl waiting for the magic moment to swim upstream into the main jet? Perplexing....

Vent hoses! I bought a Honda 450 years ago and the carbs were full of dead maggots. Also had a Honda Z50 with a wasp nest inside the muffler that plugged it up. Bugs will look for any opening to get into.

My XR would only go about a mile before acting like it was running out of fuel a while back. I went through the carbs and tank vent a few times with no luck before I finally ran a stick through the vent hose and pushed out all sorts of bug related gunk. I now have a small fuel filter on the end of the hose.

Memorial Day Monday

Is anyone planning on doing some riding on Monday the 28th? I will have my DRZ400 up and going again.

I'd probably be in if we rode pretty early...before it gets too hot.
