    Call me- 559-338-0846 559-304-3577. Dale Lineweaver is the HusaGuru from what I'm told. He may have a motor (or parts). When I had to tear into mine I was heading in that direction. Imagine...:ear 10% more ponies, 7-10% more torque, Honda-like reliability (using that term loosely) all in a bike with what, 250# dry weight? And street legal. I've just never actually conversed w/ Dale and my motor's fine for now.

    Or....
    Find a XR650R motor at the m.c. salvage and bolting in a REAL chasis/WP susp/Brembo etc.:eek1

    But really, we can get it going and it sounds like you have no choice.

    Cheers:freaky

    ps- can't help you with the rock for the wifey:lol3

    Is that Biggfoot on a Harley with a sidecar? Seems an appropriate level of mechanical sophistication:wink:

    I actually emailed him ... 4 months ago... He said he was elbow deep in a "special project" and was unable to assist me at the time... I think I was supposed to email him again, but I had forgotten. I will have to dig through my emails, thanks for the reminder.

    Got the bike going Friday. 4-hr trail ride through the Sequoia's Saturday with my son on his XR250. Now I remember why I bought that thing:D .
    I'll have to step up my pace to keep ahead of David on the 250 though:eek1 . He may come to the next DSRider excursion.

    An hour and 15 min into what?

    I admit I have a hard time following these threads, but this one has me perplexed.

    Better to lay off the stuff...................

    Powerman, where you been?

    Looking forward to the next ride, breakfast and coffee at the new secret meeting place sounds great:clap :clap :clap

    Will we ever see th DTR again, will the hot sun quit blazing on us, will the rain come and moisten our trails soon?

    Is there no end to the trails in the Sierra's above the san Joaquin Valley?

    Will I be brave and get a bike worthy of those trails? Not if my wife has any thing to do with it.
