Get the genuine Scotts sub mount, bracket only should be about $80-$90. James Renazco is a great source for anything Scotts, both prices and service. He has custom ordered me a few mounts and I had them here in Austria in 10 days even during the Christmas holidays.

I'm thinking of setting up a set of tires and go ice hunting.
There is a lot more to tire building than just screwing studs into the tire. The screws are 1" to 1 1/4" long and the tire has a liner on the inside, so it's a bit of work. The Kenda ice tire is preferred for the rear and of course the debate goes on which tire is best for the front. If you take care of your tires, they'll last awhile, which means only using them on the ice and wrapping them off the ice.

I made a set of Trelleborg spike tires and they for winter trail riding and they work great. They don't work very well on the ice though and you really need more than 20 per tire

I did this set up so I can ride when there is some snow and ice.
I didn't stud every knobby as I want to be able to ride the dirt and rocks.
Thanks Guns. I have seen those and they're pretty spendy compared to the Kold Kutters. They look good though.

Thanks Crank, I've since looked up more info too and see what you mean. Some good YouTubes on it too.

I have a stud gun that shoots the large carbide tipped studs...



My cousin made two sets for use last year using Kenda Track masters. They work great, the video I posted last week was me riding on a snow covered road and I can pull a wheelie anytime I want They suck on the lake though, not enough grip compared to the Kold Kutter tires. Our Trackmaster tires cost us about $150-200 a set including the tires.

I bought the gun and the studs and he did all the work

Man you have a pretty great variety of spiked tires! and the climate to use them in. We barely get enough cold weather in WA to justify any of those but it sure looks fun.

How do the Kold Kutters work in regular trail riding or do you uses them exclusively for lake ice riding?

once you have dulled the sharp edges off the screws,they are not so effective.I have always considered the screws for ice only.Carbide studs are what you want for trail riding. JMHO

Tagging a Berg???

I see lots of people with tagged Bergs in different states but I am not having good luck here in GA. I have an '11 390 that was originally purchased in NY state. The MSO has that nasty little sentence "not intended for highway use..." on it and the DMV keeps giving me hassles and saying it can't be done. Other friends have tagged dirtbikes here but my 5 trips to the DMV were all a waste. I have tried everything I can think of- got a title bond, had an officer inspect it and certify the VIN, insured, etc. etc. still no luck. I would give it 1 last try if anyone has a great pointer. If not I'm probably going to look to trade my 390 for a 570.

Thanks!

my 09 450FE has the same statement on the title. I went to my local motorcycle shop and they have a form they can fill out that indicates they have inspected the bike and it is road legal. I had to prove it had a hi/lo headlight, turn signals, horn, and brake tail light. I took my MSO and this form to the DMV and got it registered. I am in Vermont.

I really appreciate you misquoting me Hick with no indication that I didn't actually even say what you "quoted." Look back a few posts and you will find that I was not the first to comment on it, and there were several others as well. Anyone that takes the time to put together a video and share it I appreciate it, I know it takes a lot of time and effort, having done many dozens of these myself. And yes, I have received all the feedback that goes along with those and 99% of that feedback says no music and having received the many thank you's for not covering up the sound of the bike with songs. Most riders seem to feel that way - so if you audience are riders and you want your videos to be well received by the majority, the consensus is no music. I've seen this play out many times with others asking feedback on other boards too, and the answer among the majority of riders is always the same. I can see where maybe non-riders need to be entertained with a song while watching something as "boring" as a riding video. But by contrast, most riders are enthralled with the riding and the sound of the bike, and anything that detracts from that like random songs just take away from the effort, rather than enhancing it, so really folks go to extra effort by adding music and end up only making it less appealing to their audience. YMMV - depending on who your audience is. If you really like listening to a song while watching a riding video, just turn on your iPod, you'll get the exact same effect, and you even get to choose the music you like. Win win.

Excellent, thanks for the heads up, I'll be sure and steer clear.

Seems like someone would make walnut shell nobbies but apparently not. I could not google up any.
