How to U-turn on a Motorcycle
I guess the deer is alive somewhere. I hit it pretty square on it’s back legs, and when I came to, it was no where to be seen. I wish I could have turned him into venison for totaling my bike!
So maybe ex-nay on the whistle.
Yeah they do tend to react negatively, I just wish it wasn’t in the trees so I could have been more alert
Hell yeah, sign me up for a pair of those!
I have sat on the 230L, as well as the KLX250s and WR250R. The 230L doesn’t really compare in feel. It feels less substantial than the other two. It also has shorter suspension travel, which is a big minus off-road. Even with the motard geared towards the street, you would find the 230 and KLX250 wimpier than WR250. The KLX250 wakes up real quick with a few hours in the garage, however. As for the 230, there is no replacement for displacement.
Baron is correct in the seat height, the WR and KLX are for the long legged, while the CRF will give alot of confidence to the short legged.
I have a KLX250s and love it. Have considered getting the DS version instead of the motard, gives you more options of how to ride?
It’s super easy. Take a knife and cut the wire. Then take the end of the cut wire and a little ways down take the knife and softly cut the outer insulation. Pull off cut insulation to expose bare wire. Take that end, and the end of what you want to splice it to, put them together, insert into one of these http://www.maneywire.com/images/Winged%20Wire%20Nut.jpg
and twist tight.
I use a Kriega Tailbag to keep it water proof and just put a protection sleeve around the laptop to help alleviate banging around damage. Mine is 100% waterproof, I’ve tested it in the rain myself.
One way is to actually shake it side to side because sometimes the float gets stuck in the small Keihin carbs, is the common speculation.
Drain the bowl, it’s the screw at the bottom of your carb, just open it let it drain for a bit then tighten it back. You don’t have to remove it all the way.
Spray some starter fluid into your air intake.
If it hasn’t been too cold, with the choke off, give it three good starts with the button. Put the choke full on and it should start right up if it hasn’t been too cold. I don’t know where you are located, but chances are it’s been cold as fuck where you are.
These are the only ideas I can remember, and I’ve been drinking a bit tonight while I pack.
I like scary games because I feel more immersed in the horror experience. I’m a big fan of the old Silent Hills, Eternal Darkness and a few others.
The needles come with a ‘preservative’ on them from the factory. Sometimes this melts and will clog up a jet before uncrating. Try putting some carb cleaner in (make sure you use the right proportions) and let it idle for a while then take it through some slow revs and become more aggressive till the jet is clean. If it doesn’t come clean take it in for warranty work.
As for using high octane fuel, your engine is designed for low grade fuel and gains no benefits from high octane fuel. Mid grade is also a rip off, it’s 60% low and 40% high grade mix, blended on the spot or before the truck picks it up, just an FYI.
It’s 1,000 bucks for the camera and a 250 dollar doo-hicky that will link it with your vehicle.
I’m doing a two day ride on and around the K Trail system between OK and AR. Looks like it’s going to be intense!
In Louisiana they don’t tell you your grade, only if you pass of fail. I think the cut off is 80% though, not sure. I wonder what I got.
Where is that at? Someplace dusty?
You can see the Rev’it! size charts at http://www.revzilla.com. They have a bunch of other brands there too with size charts, including how to measure where etc etc
Where are you buying the bike from? If it is from a dealership, you can usually talk them into giving you a 30% discount or so, it helped out a ton on getting initial gear!
