Dislocated knee cap on trail. Advice? (Issue resolved but...

While riding today, one of my buddies was trying a hill climb and he fell about 3/4 of the way up. Went head over heels and landed with a dislocated patella. Luckily it was early in the day, so we had plenty of time to deal with him before it got dark. But we were pretty deep into the woods, at...

DRZ kicker - new cam chain almost done - questions?

Hi Everyone,   I'm mostly done with changing the cam chain (used a new OEM KLX chain) on my '02 DRZ kick start only bike.  It was making a horrible ticking/rattling sound in the top end when fully warmed up.  At least it seemed like the top end and coming from the clutch side - not...

2006 Honda Rancher 350 shifting problems

Hey my dad has a 2006 Honda Rancher ES (electric push button shift) 350 with about 6500 miles on. The problem is the transmission is in neutral but the display is just showing a horizontal line as if it can't shift all the way. It has a new battery so i don't think that is the problem. When I try...
