No Ambulance Mule on This Ride!
In my line of business, I come across all types of people. However, they all share a common passion... riding dirtbikes! I was afforded the opportunity to guide a father and son duo on a five day hard enduro tour through the Andes of Peru. The son, Brian, had been in the Amazon jungle working on a conservation project. He discovered a social enterprise co...

In my last blog post I covered how to lace up a wheel assembly with new spokes . This week I’ll discuss how to properly true the rim. Truing the rim is actually not too difficult. Once you understand the interaction between the spokes and rim, you will make quick work of the job. To get started a truing stand of sorts needs to be set up. This doesn’t...

FunnelWeb Performance Air Filter
After seeing the FunnelWeb Air Filter and its unique look, I just had to try one out. Those crazy Aussies are at it again! What are all those nubs about? I was never completely happy with how the stock KTM air filter seated in the air box,...

I have a Ford F-150 with the Coyote V8 and it tows reasonably well. Pulling a 6x12 cargo trailer with maybe 1,500 pounds of payload works out to about a 2,750 pound trailer which is nothing for a truck like this. Even so, towing up a steep hill requires substantial throttle input and...
I did a quick search and didn't find this specific topic. Anyway, my wife is 4'10 and 110 pounds give or take (I don't ask....). A quick pull of the tape measure shows a 26" inseam. She had a scooter as a teen, but has only ridden bicycles for the past 30 years. She's recentl...

What's your favorite terrain to ride in? Such as dry with some dust, damp dirt, muddy, sandy etc. For the record I like my mum and damp dirt. Dry dusty stuff doesnt seem to be my funnest or fastest terrain.
I believe I have a 1985 atc200m engine. I know certain it's a 200m. Not exact on the year though. But what I want to do is put a high compression piston in it. Will other 200 piston kits work or is valve clearance an issue etc??? Please fill me in on what can go in it and also camshafts. If there...
Okay so here is what I got... I have what I believe is a 1985 atc200m. Just wanting to get some more bottom end power. Not quite sure on the bore size yet. Haven't had the chance to take the head off. But... What I was wondering, is there any swapping on the jug that I could do? Sleeve it to a bi...
So, I am new to these three wheelers and I got one cheap, it ran but he said the chain was so rusted out that it seized the rear end up. I was taking the chain off and it crumbled in my hands, but it was still frozen solid, my question is, how should I go about getting this taken care of? I've ne...
OK so here's the deal. I picked up a 1977 rd400. I went through the motor.Top end is good. I replaced crank seals etc. Now I'm pressure testing the engine and I'm getting a small leak at the left crank seal. It is a small leak i lost 3psi in about an hour. Here is a picture of the seal. Could I h...
I'm wondering what others have ran for shorty exhausts on their bikes. Tried the voodoo and it's way too loud. Just want something that sounds a little more throaty than the stock.
Well it took me forever to figure out how to post so its no wonder I have to ask is there a set position for the oil filter cover. It seems the bolts only align in one position. I noticed the was a an oil passage on the bottom and also on the side of the housing and that the cover has an oil pass...
Im getting my feelers out there to unload my 2003 Arctic Cat 800 EFI 151 sled. Bought as a project, added parts to it to get it running, as it runs great now. Just needs finishing touches to be rideable. Mostly cosmetic, seat recovered & hood painted. Has a few extra parts to go with it as we...
Hi I have an sp500 but the problem is that it doesn't have enough power to keep me happy. I want to sell it and get a bigger machine for about 5500 or cheaper. Sounds like a plan, there are f7's, pro x 800's and rev chassis mxz's but how would they handle jumps compared to my sno pro. The key wo...
I have my dirtbike for sale on craigslist for $1800 and a guy is offering me a 1991 polaris indy 500 and cash. The sled looks pretty decent other than the front bumper. My bike is a 98 cr125 with kayaba shocks, v force reeds, a pro circuit pipe and a few other things. Would it be a fair enough tr...

- How to Mount a Honda XR400R Fuel Tank on an XR250R
Jul 13, 2011 10:01 AM
I recently bought a 1999 Honda XR250R that had been mildly modified by the prior owner(s). It came mounted with an oversized, aftermarket tank but the seller threw in a red XR400R tank he had in the garage. I wanted to use a smaller, OEM sized tank for day to day riding so I decided to try to mou...
