kx250. When I take the kx on the same loops as I usually
take my brp, I am much faster. This is due to the kx
superior weight,handling and braking. By handling I mean
the brp's front is much more likely to wash out on grass,
mud and even rocky fire roads. By braking, well I'm sure
you know what I mean. That said, I know which one
I intend keeping for years to come. ( it's not green ).

The pig makes great power uncorked. Once the suspension is dialed in the package becomes more complete. I had mine completetly resprung and revalved. A world of difference. That plus a steering stabilizer make is a the perfect all around playbike. Heck I can ride it Church in the morning and not offend anyone, then rip 80mph fire roads in the afternoon. The tight twisty's are still a handful but as soon as the Autoclutch comes out (anxiously waiting!!!) it'll be more singletrack friendly.
I loved the article in Dirtbike where they said the BRP lost 1/10 of a second on the Motocross section in the 24 hours at Glen Helen then gained a whole second in the open sections. Nothin better than coming up on guys riding their KTM's, WR's and other motocross bikes in the woods. They think, hey lets smoke this old dude on the barge! Well the look on their faces when you blow by at the speed of light - BRRAAAAAAP - is priceless!!!
Long live the KING!!!!!
Too bad it's snowing in Michigan. The BRP is tucked into bed for the winter. It's winter sibling is ready to pick up the slack. Can we say Polaris XC700SP!!!!!!!!!!! All the way baby!
Happy Holiday's guys.

Totally agree! There is an area down here by Alpine (Inland San Diego Mountains) called Lake Morena and it has very tight technical trails. Pig Good Here TOO, Keemosoby! UGH! (Smaltzy Tonto Impersonation), and yes I have had the pleasure of seeing some pretty interesting freak outs when I straiff on by!
Yeah Baby! BRRAAAAAAP!!

I dont own a pumper yet, but I learned this passed weekend, that after a slight tip over, turn the gas off as soon as possible, kick it over full throttle about 5-6 times to clear out the fuel, then turn the gas on and it should kick over like normal. I was riding in the Truckhaven Hills area and stopped to help a couple and their Suzuki Samuri(they were about to tip over), I looked back and my bike was laying down taking a nap on the rocky trail. I ran over and turned the gas off, stood it back up and went back to help. I also noticed that I broke a brake handle in the process . My bike started like normal after I kicked it over a few times with the gas off. Just a little FYI.

I would have told you about the turning the gas off trick, but then I would have had to kill you! HA! I need to check the weather. It appears that the moutain range is blocking rain cloud access to Ocotillo. Gonna have der kiddies this weekend and may hafta do Final Christmas Maneuvering. Of course if it does rain out there!.....
Keepin' it Juicy! Doh! Gotta get back to work!
Pumper Carb? What's next? Turbo Charging?!! NOS!!!?
As John Daily would say (with a slight buzz), GRIP IT AND RIP IT!
Happy Friday Everyone!

Question for the pumper owners - is there more responsiveness/power with the pumper?
Mucho difference in low end throttle response and a few more ponies in the low to mid range . Top end is about the same. Flooding issues are 100% gone and you can lie the bike on its side with the engine running and crack the throttle as quick as you want without any blubbering thanks to an internal fuel cell. It's rare that my bike doesn't start on the very first kick whether my bike is cold, hot or has been dumped. Would I buy it again....YES

So how was everyone else's X-mas?
There I was, up till one in the morning cleaning a slightly used XR50 for my 5-yr old daughter. Come morning it was the last present she got right after a box full of riding gear. The 50 was on the back patio and she was so excited she jumped right on it and promptly laid it over and got an owie. Not quite tall enough to reach the ground, oops! There it sat all day as she played in the house with Repunzel Barbie and every reputzel accessory know to man, including the gay-looking reputzel Ken doll with greased-back hair. I started thinking, "Hummmm, what if she doesn't ride it? Should I trick it out as a pit bike? Maybe the 80cc kit, some new shocks, and the seat/tank lift kit? Hmmm... maybe if I sell it, I could afford an e-start for the BRP or that hop up kit for the Powerstroke?"
So as darkness approached, I decide to fire up the little beast and park it in the garage. I did one loop in the back yard, started heading for the gate to the chain link fence, and out of the darkness came a crying 5-yr old girl. She grabbed my arm as I rode by and bamm! Into the fence post and on the ground. "That's my motorcycle! It's my turn! Don't take it away Daddy, noooooo!"
"But Honey, it's dark out and you don't even know how to ride a motorcycle."
Hmmmm, Guess it’s a keeper.
