Anyone up for a dirty bike ride? I'm thinking 007 and the like. Was out last weekend and was pretty much what I expected...dusty. But what the hell. Beats the heat in the valley.
I did manage to find Chicken rock, I don't care if it is granite, and there is "plenty" of traction, "Homie" don't go straight down for 50 feet, or up for that matter. Saw two guys that did though, didn't change my mind any, but it was impressive.
Anyway, I figure we could do quite a bit of single track and make a day of it. Do a couple loops have lunch etc. Can make it as hard or easy as we feel depending on the mood.

i had a yz 490 . i remember i would ride it all day,crash from exhaustion then i would have a hard time starting it.

i bet that cr was hard to start after you would roll it out of the garage every 6 month's to dust it off.:evilgrin0013:

Even after months of seating I never had a problem starting it up, only time was when it was running hot then I dump it only then it was a pain, I need to see how the wr400 is but it suppose to be the same way once it's hot and kill it it's a pain they said

I pretty much totaled the complete front end on my bike last time i rode it but I have replaced everything thanks to Ebay.
9016
The new forks I got are Race-tech so I hope I dont have any issues on how they were set up. All i need now is a new back rim (Current one has a paddle and I want to leave it that way), a fresh top end and new rubbers.

the KX starts 1st or 2nd kick almost every time. no matter how long it sits, or even when i wreck.

He is talking 007 so it would have to be up central camp road to start.

As for when, I'm up for a ride the weekend after MotoGp sooo like the 11th or 12th of July?? We have been riding a bit east of there lately and have been finding some killer single track but if knows of some good single track up central camp road besides the 007's I'm def. game to do some exploring. :dblthumb2:

When will work with most everyone else?

Ive got a dual sport ride on Sun the 12th so cant go then.

Mooney, are you gonna give up the SSS trails??

Ive been 3 times in 4 weeks, crashed last trip two weeks ago and bruised the heck out of my thigh. 53mi and I crash 3 mi from getting back to the truck. Better the last 3 than the first 3 tho. Got cross rutted on a downhill tree root. SLAM!!

maybe Your steering bearings

MikeinFresno
Aug 16th, 2009, 08:21 PM
and rear susp linkage bearings, that is usually where a squeak starts. Watch the steering bearings, some are loose balls in there and will fall out and bounce to the black hole in the garage. I put a towel on the floor to catch them.

montibank
Aug 16th, 2009, 09:16 PM
Rear suspension bearings disappear easily too. Actually - they are the only reason I haven't started my bike tonight. Not going to put the exhaust on and shock in then take em back out to mount it.

Darn things bounced right out when it tipped over on the stand in the garage the other day. DOH! I lost 4 of em.

My bike has been sitting for quite some time and has seen several trips to pismo, So let me get this right. I should replace my wheel bearings, steering wearings and swingarm bearings. Any thing I should consider, just to make sure every thing is fresh

MikeinFresno
Aug 17th, 2009, 04:59 PM
no, you dont have to replace them, just clean and grease them, omly if you think it needs to be done at all that is. If you were in the water I would do it. If its just the sand then probly do it. You wont know if they need to be replaced til you get it apart.

Actually swingarm pivot/rear motor mount bearnings. Got it all fixed.

Yup fixed as of last friday, I have put 200 miles on it since break in completed.

Ment to drop by the shop'n say hi but I been busting my arse to make up brownie points so I can ride. I am considering a ride Friday... but not sure yet. My wife is going to be leaving town on friday - I will have to rush home from any riding friday to get her... I always worry about getting hurt/lost when I have to get her later in the day. If she is with family they will be fine, but not daycare. I will drop by the shop sometime this week.

Sorry guy I just noticed the post. Of course I usually have the weekends off, working during the week and I normally save most of my personal time for the winter. You've got to be ready if a storm dumps over a foot of freshies eh, Ha. Do you ride every Mon or tuesday that you can? I might be able to finagle some time off.

I am going to try and head up this weekend sometime Sat or Sun. not sure when or where yet. I just got new bars on the CRF and I am itching to test em out :D

Just my own consensus. 97% of the members seem to ride street.

:confused2:

Its like shopping for a BMW at a Honda dealer...

But if this ever does happen. I might go, work permitting that is.

It would be cool to get a bunch of dirt bikers together and go riding all from one forum though!

Last chance to redeem yourself (http://www.centralvalleyriders.com/forums/showthread.php?t=7147)...

KTMs are not going anywhere, and my snowmobiling trip got postponed to a day that i had to work (Today) :censored: So instead i spent the day cleaning my garage, Which i am very satisfied by the way
