i have a set that came on my WRR that I'll make you a good deal on when you get back.
First time I met/rode with you guys. 27 degrees and I roll up on a KLR250 with a hoodie, carhartt pants and a MX lid....man, a lot has changed in a year....
So, we went to IP this morning because after yesterday I decided I had to have some boots with some semblance of being waterproof. I picked these up:

Also, Krista tried out a few bikes. She is kinda comfortable on a KLX250, but the WRR is too tall for sure. Thinking I may try to find a CRF 230 eventually. For now, I think we are going to get a Zuma or Ruckus for her to get the mechanics down before we start working on shifting. Anyone have a scooter they want to get off of?
I also made the mistake of sitting one a Versys..I kinda want one...
Thanks. Never heard of them, but I'll check it out.
I'll be back in mid-March, though I don't think the wife will allow me out the first week.
I just checked the Unabiker site and don't see a WRR application, unless something else fits. I have a Flatland, it seems ok, but hasn't deflected any trees yet , seems to keep the gravel out. There's one made by Force that looks more substantial, but its about $100.
I have a Ricochet skid plate, if I planned on dragging it over logs regularly, I'd replace the hex bolts with something smoother. Once again, it keeps the gravel off the case. It also wraps around and would maybe deflect anything headed toward the sight glass.
Anyone know of a good honest mechanic who can check over the adjustment of the carbs on my XL600 affordably?
My friend and fellow inmate Rick G has a SYM Fiddle 125 for sale up here in NEOh...
I thought he had it listed in the FM but I don't see it...
Friday I saw a used:
2012 XR650-L, 297 miles, $6160 at the Pony.
It can double as a good tow vehicle. . .
I want it - but someone else is going to get this one.
they still have the X Challenge?
Maybe Byron just makes the little Honda look good. After riding BMW tanks off road for years, the little Hondas have to be like throwing around a mini-bike by comparison.
They just beg to be wheelied.
I got home from that ride and immediately took the F800GS out for a spin. My immediately reaction was, "Holy crap ... I've ridden this pig off-road!"
The Versys is a great bike for the money. Kind of wish I'd have hung onto mine for my boy.
I jumped off the 250 onto the 950 at Briarciff MX and said the same thing though it was more like a camel than a pig
If it is an old twin carb set up, it's not that bad. Make sure all jets are clean. One carb effects the whole throttle range and the 2nd 1/2 throttle to full throttle. If I remember correctly, the 2nd carb should remain closed until 1/2 throttle then open to full throttle as the main carb reaches full throttle. I think the 2nd carb has no pilot or idle jets, just a main jet.
It allows a small carb for throttle response at low RPM then a big carb for high RPM. My 2nd arb had dirt in it and when I'd hit half throttle, the bike would go lean and die.
Hello from Beavercreek.
Hocking Hills is great to ride to/in. I did weekend trip and stayed at Valley View Cabins. (not camping, but still nice with the wife.)
I haven't done any other motorcycle overnight/weekend trips, but we've got a couple of destinations on the radar, such as Blue Ridge Parkway (it has camping along it, so I hear), and Sleeping Bear Dunes (long trip on a bike for some).
I belive my main problem is the adjustment of the pilot mixture screw, it's an 87 with the california twin carbs so no air screw,
One setting she starts great cold with a real good idle and rev but then sometimes not all the time doesn't want to start hot.
Once adjusted to start hot it will have a a cough/backfire through the carbs every couple of seconds for about 10mins that can kill it and have a stuck high idle.
I'm pretty sure I just flooded it saturday but......
I'm just to the point where I just can't trust it to get me back home even if it was running good at the moment. maybe I'm just parinoid
I couldn't afford this one when I bought it so there's no way for me to get a different.
If the oddometer is correct as the title is it only has 6,800miles on the clock WTF?
I don't know anything about that engine but is it possible the valves are out of adjustment? The starting issues hot vs cold are what make me wonder.
yup, saw it this morning. The price on it is not too bad, but it is kinda beat up and I think it has been in their service department quite a bit. Everytime I am there, it is outside.
The valves were just readjusted 80miles after reassembly and 40 miles ago. Does make sense though, kicker felt soft when I went to go about and hour later, I should probly check it cold then run it up to temp and see how much it tightens. Right now I'm running stock clearences .002 and .004.
Tappy valves are happy valves but how tappy is happy? I can't believe I said that
Good call invisible monster!
I wonder if it is running lean at highway speed and getting too hot.
I'm running a 120jet in the primary and a 118 in the secondary can I swap those around to get it to run cooler at highway speed. I do have a 122 if needed.
