street legal 2-strokes

    Re: street legal 2-strokes

    well, I found one of the ST trail entrances



    yeah I dunno...I'm teetering on the edge of being stranded while exploring

    can't really even make out the trail:



    maybe with a friend or on a Sur Ron so I can lift it up and turn around if need be

    only 2 rides on the Kenda trackmaster



    and it's already loosing chunks of rubber

    I need one more cleaning/maintenance day then I want to explore new spots...



    this one's called "the farm"...and mike metzger used to live really close and ride there

    Re: street legal 2-strokes



    did a preventative maintenance day:



    after the 690 fiasco, I've been more vigilant on my bike's air filters

    this is 7 rides...honestly doesn't look that bad

    no way I killed the 690 w' from 4 rides with the factory air filter in place



    plug checks on a smoker are kinda irrelevant.

    It's always going to look a little oily/black.

    The electrode looks pretty clean though...if that started to look bad, then I'd replace it. Last replaced November 2021.

    I swear carb cleaner cans leak pressure...every can that's been sitting in the shed is empty by the time I use it



    next time: pickup a can of carb cleaner on the way before doing carb maintenance day



    the jets looked clear all the way through



    ultrasonic wasn't necessary; but the carb is off so why not



    no crazy striping on the front of the piston



    from what you can see inside the spark plug hole, nothing crazy.

    A light film of oil and not too much carbon build up.

    The lizard just snuck into my bag (sitting outside the shed with the zipper open) while I was wrenching

    tell me you wrench on bikes in the desert southwest, without telling me you wrench on bikes in the desert southwest.

    Re: street legal 2-strokes

    finally checked out "the farm"



    Mike Metzger used to live and ride here!



    mostly wider hard pack trails with single track offshoots cut into the hills



    bike did fine without the flywheel weight.

    I still have a weird "skip" or studder when WOT in high rpm's. I think going up one jet size on the main helped, but I'm not 100% sure. I'm going to ride it again to verify.



    56 mile drive against traffic each way

    no man's land...most towns in the Inland Empire (1-2 hours away from the coast) have areas like this to ride



    how do they tolerate dirt bikes, and why you can get cheaper houses/land 1-2 hours away from the coast?



    and it goes up from here throughout July/August 8 month riding season

    2-3 acre lots out here can be had for $100-$150k, and 20 acres for $250k.

    meanwhile, costal:





    you're lucky to find anything with 6500sq ft lot for under a mil

    ah, socal

    but one thing I like about my local mountain/riding spot: can generally ride it year round. mid 80's in july/august in elevation

    doing a local run this weekend after work

    where's your local? Santiago Peak area? I still have the dirty setup on from the Mexico run and been wanting to do more dirty riding.

    Re: street legal 2-strokes

    Yes sir, that’s my local spot

    With only 2-ish hours or sunlight after work, I won’t be going to the peak; just up north main divide towards Beek’s place and back.

    You’re welcome to come, although I’m Not sure it’s really worth the hike from the IE if you have the SBNF behind you. Meet at Maple Sprints gate at 5:45pm, kickstands up at 6pm.

    Re: street legal 2-strokes



    nice little evening ride



    I need a new front tire

    I hiked down a couple of the single tracks from google maps:



    they're not really rideable; hiking trails...moving on

    about 13 more to explore off maps

    still have the studder; but I think it's happening w' 50% throttle.

    If I completely open the throttle, I don't have the issue.

    Going to try adjusting the needle clip position to see if it goes away.

    Re: street legal 2-strokes

    oof...it was super foggy up the mountain



    in some areas you couldn't even see a tail light 50 feet ahead of you

    I ran the baja designs squadron headlight, and an LED helmet lamp, and all we got was an illluminated wall of fog.

    More lights didn't help...you just gotta slow down.

    but when the fog cleared in elevation, you're above the clouds:









    I snapped a brake lever on a hill tip over and didn't have a spare on me

    I literally have 95% of everything I'd need to ride solo: a spare clutch lever, shift lever, spare tube, C02 cartridges, Lezyne hand pump, tire irons, quick steel, safety wire, the tools to tear apart most of the bike, Garmin Satellite SOS device, water, spare GU sugar/electrolyte packs, rag to wipe visor...and no spare brake lever.

    WTF Bhavesh, get your ish together!

    Oh well...stark reminder that it's time for handguards if I'm trail riding

    better to have it happen on a C ride after work than an A ride that you took time off work for
