    seein how I don't get out much anymore, where and what is T&T? :scratch


    the main secret to fun for riding these back roads is not to haul ass on them..keep in mind that you are not the only one on these roads and if you can't see around the curve or over the rise, SLOW DOWN!..we will even teach ya what we call leap froggin...real simple and work like a charm..all it takes is one to fuck it up real good and you can spend alot of time doing a search for lost riders!

    I just put some firewood in the garage, in case it gets wet & cold here pretty quick, I also test ran the generator out in the shed, 2 pulls humming along.

    Oh yeah, fixed the water heater this afternoon too, the dip tube ( tube the brings cold water in) was broken off at the top of the unit, right near the hot water output, so only luke warm water came out, basically tempering the water at the tank, not the valves in the house.

    I once again have water that will scald skin off of a bull elk.

    now to think about dinner..

    hmmm, might try to roll out some wheat pasta...

    and for some reason ive been drinking coors light, oh crap sorry Ted for putting a dent in your beer fridge.

    While y'all are bs'n, chew on this awhile. Bike running very good just a little rich. Remove 62/162 and install 60/160. Spits, sputters, farts, stumbles and then dies. Starts right back up and repeats itself. Be advised EVERYTHING EVERYTHING EVERYTHING that touches fuel in any manner is BEYOND CLEAN and most is new. Why O Why??? Thanks.

    where was it rich?

    idle? WOT? or mid range?

    you tune each circuit seperatly

    pilot jet controls start and idle

    Main jet controls WOT.

    the needle controls the transition and basically the midrange fuel delivery.

    Id go back your original main jet ( if it was pulling good in the upper throttle area)

    and just go down one on the pilot, or perhaps shim the needle slightly, to pull some fuel out of the mix above idle and below WOT

    keep in mind, to have a good "hit" you pretty much will end up a bit rich on a 4 stroke, especially if you do not have a pumper type carb.

    Think again. I had a large family of crazy redknecks that everyone was afraid of and most of my friends played football. Nobody bothered me.

    Welcome!
    I dont post much but lurk daily.

    I have an 09 KLR bought it new in 10 and have about 13k on it. I ride about 70-80% dirt roads. My .02 on tires: Ran stock tires 2 rear to 1 front. Tried Shinko E700s.Good traction (way better than stock) but the rear wore out at 1800 miles. Put a Shinko 244 on the rear and still have the 700 on the front and wearing well. Have about 3800 on the 244. Good traction in dirt, again way better than stock and some better on dry pavement but it is loud.

    Just picked up this little beauty of a KDX two smoker from a buddy in Florida. Pretty much everything is new/rebuilt/replaced. Plan is to get it tagged, but for now it's offroad only. I'm taking it up to Mill Creek OHV area Wednesday for a break-in ride. Anyone who has some time off and wants to get dirty/muddy/wet Wednesday is welcome to join in.
