    and yes I agree good LED bike headlight + good helmet light (turns with your head) = you can run baja

    I sense you will be doing a night trail run in your trail system this fall/winter
    The nice thing about the Niterider is the intuitive mode switching. Basically, you have 3 brightness levels, then you have 2 strobe settings. When the light is off, press and hold to turn it on. To turn it off, you press and hold for 7 seconds. Here's where it gets cool; when you turn it on it defaults to non-strobe. A quick press will toggle between high/med/low and back. If you want strobe, you have to hold for 3 seconds, then a quick press will toggle between the 2 strobe settings.

    Anyway, what it boils down to is most of the time when I'm riding I ride with the light on low (10 hours of use) to conserve battery, I only crank it up to high (2 hours of use) when things are super sketchy or long fast sections. You can toggle between the modes with out fear of accidentally shutting the light off or turning it into an EDM party.

    But yes, definitely planning on doing some night riding out back as that frosty bitch Mother Nature robs more and more precious vitamin D from us.

    and the nearby forest is open again...



    the squadron was awesome in the forests!

    It had good throw down the trail at any rolling rpm...only flickered if the idle was low enough that it was was gonna near stall

    Re: street legal 2-strokes

    and we're in!





    caking on the linkage will come off...with a spatula

    I can see the metal again! it's salvageable



    next: new linkage bearings & swap out for WR swingarm

    EDIT#1 : I also need a new chain/sprocket. Chapmoto only stocks the "bikemaster" when I search by vehicle...anyone run those?

    EDIT#2: F ChapMoto - rocky mountain carries the "Primary Drive" brand recommended by Everide.

    stock on yz trans: 13/49 = 0.265

    current: 14/48 = 0.291 - nearly perfect cuz of the street slab to the trails, but want more torque/tractor feel
    extreme: 13/52 = 0.25
    other extreme: 15/44 = 0.34

    I tried 14/45 (0.31) but it wasn't much different than 14/48 on the street slab, and it gave up a little too much in 1st gear...so no need to go any higher than 0.29 or 0.3...for anything.

    ordered 13/49 next

    GOAL: get more torque/tractor feel, but be able to swap to a 15t front sprocket if I need to slab more.

    and this

    my spare 21/18" will get the stickiest rubber I can find; same gearing as the dirt rims. Minimal to no chain adjusting during the rim swap. My only application there is supermoto track days 1-2 times/year, so I don't need a small rear sprocket for long slab duty on slicks...track gearing for those rims will be better suited. Anything more than that on the road goes to Ninja duty.

    Re: street legal 2-strokes

    I love how easy it is to gain access to the inner compartments of the bike just by removing 2 bolts & swinging up the subframe



    now that the airbox is unhooked, the carb comes off easily, and you get into that tight little area above the motor



    and now it's finally clean!

    but the better question is - why was it dirty?

    What caused an oil film to start, then collect dirt?



    missing anything?

    there's supposed to be an o-ring there...and I can't for the life of me remember when it fell out

    oh well...carb ultrasonic cleaned



    muffler cleaned up pretty well



    but check out the spooge amount now that it's been repacked



    and where exactly is the spark arrestor? shouldn't there be a screen at the end?

    loving the exposed studs in the moto shed...doubles as storage shelves when disassembling the bike and keeps them out of the way



    Next 1-2 weeks:
    -new grips
    -Cycra ProBend handguards
    -Tusk front signals on handguards
    -clean carb, new carb overflow tubes
    -drain fluids
    -clean air filter
    -swingarm clean/swap
    -tighten spokes
    -mount dirt rims/tires
    -aim headlight
    -install new plastics
    -hour meter
    next 2-3 weeks:
    -drop off bike to mechanic for motor inspection of bottom end, water pump, & counter shaft sprocket seal. New top end w' ported cylinder install. Linkage bearings.
    4-6 weeks out:
    -new chain/sprockets
    -new front/rear tires w' new UHD tubes
    -new graphics installed
    -IMS Pro Series pegs
    -maybe: fly wheel weight, Lectron

    and that should do it for the rest of the season...after that it's just maintenance and monitoring. With a fresh motor I'll have a baseline reference for future maintenance.

    Re: street legal 2-strokes

    You kids with your fancy removable subframes...

    That spot on the motor is right under the airbox's drain. If you look there is an opening on the bottom of the airbox, and it's a serpentine path from there to the main chamber. Over time filter oil drips down into that drain and onto the motor. Most of it typically hits the crossbrace of the swingarm, but once you're rolling it can splatter in a wide pattern.

    Re: street legal 2-strokes

    you're telling me!



    2 bolts takes off the swingarm

    GREAT access to the top & rear sides of the motor



    which exposes...





    holy cow...hidden corner of the engine bay

    nailed it!



    but it doesn't end in that dark, difficult to access corner





    dang...it's time

    & a breaker bar won't fit over that nut...and a ratchet doesn't have the leverage

    I should've hit it with penetrating fluid before I left

    but I'll just buy a 22mm box ended wrench next

    I was hoping to get it to the mechanic this week, but I think it's better to have him push in new linkage bearings first, then install the WR swingarm/dirt rims, and bring over the roller chasis w' a tank + seat so he can test it after he rebuilds it

    "and where exactly is the spark arrestor? shouldn't there be a screen at the end?" - That muffler has a Centrifugal type spark arrestor - also known as a Krizman spark arrestor - No screen. This is the "Turbine" that FMF refers to.

    very cool! I had no idea

    did I mention how fun it is to have you on here greg?

    you don't post much on NESR, but when you do, it's always with concise, accurate, random but useful bits of knowledge that add to the thread

    actually the whole dirty bastards forum is my favorite part of NESR
