well the 22 is MX, so i am not sure if a three day weekend of motor cycles is going to work either, let me check the other dates. so for you, the next two weekends are out, correct.

Probably not what you're talking about, but my family has a place up in the mountains in Red River New Mexico. Awesome place to go trail riding. There are several lakes and peaks that you can ride up to. You won't find any whoops or table ops, but the scenery is spectacular.

Been there to the Red River riding a long time ago. Munster I believe is where we went. Alot of good riding, the quick sand is kinda nasty though. We were riding 3 wheelers back then. I have a camping trip I am taking my son on. Wish I had more notice. Thanks for the pm though.

We usually take our 4-wheelers up Lake Murray in Oklahoma (SE of Ardmore). They have alot of nice trails, nice camping, and hot showers. If you camp there you are allowed to ride all night too! Pretty nice litte place and only 1 1/2 hours from Arlington! I have never been to Muenster, but I have heard people say they like OK better.

Never wrap it up, never pull out. Just grind up the morning after pill in her scrambled eggs at sunrise, she'll appreciate that you made her breakfast.

I have only had ONE problem with other people out there. Last time we were there, some jackass thought it would be fun to ride his raptor in the campgrounds about 1 a.m. with loud ass exhaust. I went to say something to him but a park ranger pulled up at the same time as me. Lake Murray is run by the state and they don't put up with any crap. They have a strictly enforced speed limit in the camping area and parking lots. Most people quietly head out to the riding area.

I've have a buddy that has a generator. Just trying to keep it quiet at night time. I am a little worried about my son's ability to ride in the sand. Is there quite a few areas where it is packed pretty good? I could just bring his 4 wheeler, but he really likes the dirt bike. The site says they have camping spots, I will call to see if they have electricity. Not sure if I can make it yet or not, but its starting to sound pretty good.

Educate me on clutch springs on dirt bikes

As you know I have a DR350. Previous owner said it has a big bore kit on the top end. (supposed to kick it up to 435 cc, don't flame, just telling you what I was told, I have no clue) He said he put a kevlar clutch with a heavy spring kit to handle the power. My question is how many spring kits over oem are available. This one will give you forearm pump like a mofo. I will be doing mostly easy riding in my old age. But would really like a good easy clutch feel (like stock) , but maintain a little structual integrity on the holding. The local place said they had oem and 15 percent over. I would think I have the dual friction version due to how tough this thing is to pull in.

What are the options out there? Thanks for your help, I have been out of the motorcycle scene for close to 15 years, so count on me asking some stupid questions as I relearn these things.

You might could convert it to a hydraulic clutch. That would make the pull a lot easier I would think.

Just put stock springs back in it.... They'll be more than enough for what you're wanting to do.

That's what I was thinking. But how many levels are there over stock? That is my question, mainly for curiousity.

Ticket question...

Got a ticket for 20 over(80 in a 60). Whats the typical cost to just pay this ticket? Also, whats the cost of defensive driving?

Thanks,

stock springs would be fine if you dont ride it hard. Hydraulic cluth is much easyer, if you got the cash go that route.

It was right over by your house too! On 45. Bastards! Had the cruise set on 70, and he said he clocked me at 80. Don't know if he picked up another car, or if the speedo is wrong. Either way, I got busted for it

well, first the ticket should have a scale of what it will cost for every 5 mph over the speedlimit. but if not, 20mph over will probably run you 150-190 depending on the county. defensive driving is 45 plus the court cost which is usually like 60.

Just got done with mine. 79 in a 55 and it was 245 for the ticket and 110 for court costs, but thank God for DD. It only cost me the court cost of 110 + 40 for defensive

Well, I am convinced the clutch needs to be replaced. Never felt a clutch so hard to pull in. He said the cable is new, plus I pulled it off and the lever that goes into the clutch disc housing is hard as hell to move by hand. Will go with the Barnetts.

Thats the way my 125 is. Sounds like its fine. I have to put a rag on it and pull hard as hell to move it. Just buy some cable lube and see what that does. Dont just use some other kind of lube, trust me it dosent work.

I had a guy up here at work and his son's race atv's. They use the heavy clutch springs as well. He pulled in on mine and said his son's is no where near as hard to pull. He stated his son uses 2 fingers to work the clutch. Mine can't be done with 2 fingers. Does yours fall in this catagory?


Also, he said there is less than 5 hours on the kevlar clutch discs that are in there. They are Barnetts too. If you adjust your clutch handle to maximize gripping power, it makes it harder to shift and find neutral also. If you turn it a 1/4 turn to 1.5 turns (clutch adjustment cable at hand lever) the clutch slips a little. ( I have yet to find a happy medium for this problem) So essentially its supposed to be new, but to me its acting like an old one.

I rather smoke the clutch than screw up the gears/clutch forks............right?
