Bringing this bad boy home tomorrow!  

Thought I might have spending the night in the woods for about an hour today.  Finally got it out and roasted up some red hots trail side.  Epic weekend.  Some great climbs, some bad stucks, lots of l

I'm the 18B

Move this shit out of the CE forum. :bc:

Played hookie and scratched the itch before all the snow is gone again in 10 days. Can’t believe that I nailed the suspension setup on the first try on a new to me sled and zero research. While it’s my trail sled, it did really good on all the two tracks, etc today. Great first ride of the year! Almost wadded the truck/trailer up 3-4 times on the way up there to ride this morning, because of all the black ice, but still worth it!

Grayling/Kalkaska area. Snow depth varied wildly. You’d have 6” in one spot and 2’ in the next. All lake effect is why. 

Glad you got out.  Yeah, still a bit thin here right now but, I prepped my gear and gonna toss my truck bed platform thingamajiggy in tomorrow.  It's time for a shakedown run real soon.

Yeah, glad I got that part of the year out of the way. I had my RMK in the trailer, with full intentions of shaking that thing down too but the Indy was running well enough that I never made it back to the truck until it was time to head home. :bc:

I love how they call that a “quiet track”. It certainly isn’t any quieter than any other track I’ve ever run.

50’s and rain starting the end of this week. Hell, down by me, it will be in the 60’s for a few days next week. These weather patterns are just fucked anymore. That’s why I skipped out and went yesterday. You almost have to around here anymore.

It’s a 96

the needle jets on these carbs are notorious for wearing and then the run pig rich. You can compensate by dropping the needles. I’ve had to do lots of them already. Really cleans it up

Its amazing what a difference a properly jetted carb can make.  I'm glad all the new shit is fuel injected.  I had a CR250 race bike that I sent the motor to Procircuit for a porting job, got it back and was just not impressed compared to stock.  Ended up dropping the needle one clip and going down one size on the main.  Holy fuck balls.  What a difference, fastest bike I had ever ridden after that.

Yeah it’s huge. My mock runs crisp as fuck now after playing with the needles. Used to be doggy in the trails until you could find a long enough stretch to clean it out. Not anymore 

I think it’s a lot of the reason people had trouble with spark plugs in these old sleds too.

I have never been up in the mitten do you guys get a lot of L.E there or not cold enough ? I would assume so but have no idea
