Big thanks to this great group!

6 months ago I was a guy who was given a non running, never maintained 85 spree with 14k miles. I tore it down and cleaned everything up to have it start right up! I then wanted to go faster than 25 downhill so I joined here, where I had read pages upon pages every night trying to learn all things s...

Re: Front Tire Orientation |\/| |/\|

The "V" I was always taught drives water or dirt from Outter to inner creating a clean "rooster tail". Creating traction from outter where you have more surface to inner where there's less creating a better hold. Makes sense to me but always wondered just how much it helped. About the time I asked "...

Re: Post big bore tuning+all my Newb questions

As much as I wanted to keep the bbk the thing just wouldnt run over 30 without wanting to soft sieze. I tried jets ranging from 65-90 with 80-85 only being optimal. Air box though for future adventurist was conclusive at 2 1/2 inch holes with an 85. Honestly though after riding one with a swap done ...

Re: Low dollar to high dollar budget estimates to use a 48mm

Yep, bbk and Taz gears currently and honestly don't even want to ride it as it is! I have to many hills in my area and basically have to get off and walk it. Bbk makes up for a little bit not enough to hold my interest.

Re: Post big bore tuning+all my Newb questions

Good catch Mr Clark, shame on me for under thinking something a Proffesional plumber and former hvac technician should know without thought! A single one inch hole produce a different volume than two 1/2 inch holes so I shouldn't have been confused about different results. I over think and under per...

Re: Post big bore tuning+all my Newb questions

Ok so tinker time, warmed up and ran around the hood for 20 minutes. first I started playing with the mixture screw, 1/8 turn out, reset idle and would run down the block and back. Ended up noticing the powerband at around 3/4 turns out. Though now it's between 20-25mph, cool for that oh crap moment...
