Around the Mountain...making first tracks on a dirtbike
To be the first dirtbike on a trail, ever, provides one with a thrill that is hard for many to experience. However, there are circumstances in life that we create that put us in places to do so."Would you be interested in riding on a totally new, unridden trail?" That is a question that I love to present to the people I ride with here in Peru. I grew up i...

Kenda K760 Trakmaster II Tires
So you ride a dual-sport motorcycle, but like to spend most of your time riding with the dirt bike dudes than laying down miles with the adventure bike guys? Why use a truck or a trailer when your bike has a perfectly good license plate on th...

Racer Gloves USA Guide Glove
For this review, I'm either the perfect guy for the job... or the worst. Perfect in that I had no preconceptions about what makes a good/bad ADV glove or the worst because I have no experience riding with any particular brand of the same. I've onl...

After years of putting up with dodgy knees, my right knee has finally given up. Annoyingly though the final straw wasn't through cycling but after an eventful weekend of DIY, laying decking in my back garden. 3 weeks now not on the bike and waiting for an MRI to find out what damage has been done...

Here's some photos of what a yellow UFO spade type 2 universal front fender looks like compared to a stock drz400s front fender. Also some pics bolted onto my drz400s with dirt 21/18 wheels. Nice front fender, good quality plastic strength and color matched really well with my yellow 2005. When l...
Hello all, new to the forum here. So, I bought a 2014 RZR 800 EPS last year and when I started to drive it this year, my front right wheel seems to be locking up I am guessing? The whole RZR starts to shake and you can hear it coming from the front right wheel. I can get it to stop shaking i...
I know it's not a a UTV, but I got a little buggy thing (Baja Blaster is what it's called) from a guy as a partial trade. It doesn't steer well, wheels kind of drag and get locked sideways. It's got tie rides, a arms, ball joints it even kind of has a rack and pinion. Can't figure it out, any one...
I have been reading for days about compression ratios, cam specifications, and matching engine components to find out what I need to do, so maybe someone can shed some light on my issue. My son recently traded his Honda 450 R for a Raptor 700 on Craigslist.. not what I would have done,...
Hey I need some info. I am trying to figure out what my first motorcycle should be. I am very tall and heavy (6'6"-400 lbs) and I like the idea of a dr650 but I like the looks of the drz400sm. My question is would the drz400sm handle my weight as well as the dr650

I completely tore down the engine of my 1980 yamaha enticer 300 last winter because a crank bearing went. Now that I have a new bearing and complete gasket kit I'm starting to put it back together. I have a supplemental service manual for it that has torques and stuff, but it doesn't really say a...
I am looking for something for ditch banging, jumping and trail riding. The trail rides won't be very long. My budget is $4000-$4500. I am open to any brands. Thanks
My buddy's got a 2001 blaster and we just did the vitos 240 big bore kit. Runs good but i dont thing the jetting is quit right. We live in michigan at about 600ft above sea level. If somebody who knows a little more about jetting could help that would be great. We did go bigger on the jets too i...
