Maxxis Desert IT
Posted June 10, 2005 - 10:03 PM
Here's my situation...I ride the Sierra Nevada high desert pretty exclusively with lots of loose granite in the lime-to-grapefruit-size range, transitioning into course granite sand that likes to wash my front end out when I'm daydreaming. Then, just for fun, the terrain will transform into hard pack clay that likes to turn into axle grease when it gets wet. Occasionally, I get to do a little singletrack woods riding when a stand of pine trees decides to get in my way, complete with nice soft stuff that, when you add a little moisture, turns into crazyglue-like oatmeal that will suck your boot off if you dab your foot on a tight turn. Basically, I've got a huge variety of conditions, but the rocks and sand thing is where I end up the most. So, wadday'all think? Does the Desert IT, front and rear, fit the bill? Thanks for cluing me in...SC

I'm here in Truckee, I put on the maxxis Desert IT's front and rear.
I ride alot of Reno Desert and Sierra Granite.
I think the tires are great, hard as a rock with great grip. I got a flat in no time with those Dunlops, no flat on the Desert IT's yet.
I got mine for 100$ for both, I thinks thats a deal from my local shop. If thats the real price, its worth it.
Whats your jetting specs?

As far as my jetting/intake/exhaust specs go, here's what I've got:
100 Pilot Air Jet
35 Leak Jet
JD Red #5
Fuel Screw - 1.5 Turns out
Barnum's Pro Airbox Kit w/ Twin Air filter
FMF Exhaust w/ Q2 and Powerbomb SX
I'm going to be dropping in a YZ exhaust cam in a week or two, so the jetting will probably change. This set-up is working great for me with the current temperature settings. When it drops into the 60's I need to richen it up a bit as I start getting decel popping, usually one needle position or a turn on the fuel screw does the trick...SC

Yes, all the free mods are done, and I re-jetted with JD Blue #3, and 168 main, all the other jets are stock. It started out great (better then before) but now is still not dialed in.
I'm thinking, Red #5 , 168 main, and 48 pilot, 40 leak??
