well in the summer just some jeans, shirt, boots, helmet,and my chest protector.

but when its cold out i wear long johns, riding pants,underarmour,jersey huge socks, boots, helmet, chest protector, and gloves.

but whether you ride with all your gear is up to you, as long as your helmet is on, its fine in my book.

Well, it's pretty obvious that this board needs more fast, hard riding, daredevil types like Bot, Wheeler, MWKE, and myself. :laugh:

One thing I've learned is that the older you get, the longer it takes for those bumps and bruises to quit hurttin.

MWKE, we don't consider a thong, flip flops, bicycle helmet, and over sized novelty sun glasses "riding gear".

I believe with a thong only there would be some chafing and flip flops are hard to shift with.....:bouncen:

You think you get monkey butt after a long ride now...try it in a thong while adding sand in the mix. I foresee some unlucky spouse applying ointment and band-aids!

I wear helmet, goggles, gloves and boots and sometimes a jersey.

That's what I USED to wear.I got hurt about 3-4 weeks ago and I'm still feelin it.I never went to the doctor;but I think I either broke or cracked a couple ribs,aggravated the rotator cuff on my r shoulder,and pulled/tweaked several muscles all over last time I went riding.I rolled my DVX400 three separate times in one day in the course of about an hour and a half.After Christmas is done I'm planning on getting a bunch of new riding gear as well as new handlebars,different tires,nerfbars & f/r bumpers

      Really don't like the idea of wearing a helmet but for safety's sake I cant justify flying down a dirt road at 45 without wearing one, so I'm wondering what's a good helmet to get for someone who doesn't want a helmet on at all. Light weight would be a priority as well as open face.

      I am repairing my 100 for the grandkids, the rear axle pinion gear is chewed up, but luckily I found a used on from an old moto 4 80cc that is interchangeable...I only had to change out the axle hubs, and they are splined, so that was easy. I now need to fill the rear casing with grease, as I cleaned all the old grease out. What should I use for this? It is sealed when assembled, with no way to check it or fill it further. Any help is appreciated.

      I have a 2006 kingquad 700 efi I got a 2" lift with 28" silverbacks,I've got a 106 cp big bore kit, and I'm looking to see what I can do to get a gear reduction and I can't find it any where is it in the beveal gears or a clutch kit?

      I recently bought a 2000 Polaris Sportsman 500 4x4 with CVT. The bike runs great. Starts right up and motor sounds solid. My problem is sometimes when I shift into gear it grinds as I'm shifting. I always make sure the bike is at a complete stop, I press the foot brake on, and I shift the lever into HIGH or LOW or REVERSE and it grinds as it pops in gear. I'm guessing maybe the idle is too high or I may need a new clutch kit. It has the original stock CVT clutch (springs and weights) so it's probably due for some maintenance. I have adjusted the throttle screw on the carb and when I first turn on bike when cold it idles fine, but after I've been riding a while and she is good and warmed up she idles slightly higher which then creates this horrible grind noise when I shift into gear. My old '92 Polaris Trail Boss did the exact same thing but I found if I applied the foot brake it stopped it from grinding. Pressing the foot brake as I shift doesn't seem to help. I have not opened up the cvt cover to investigate the pulleys yet. Any advice before I start dismantling parts? I'm thinking I will adjust my idle down a little. If this doesn't help I'll take a look at the CVT. Previous owner claims he installed a NEW belt, but never messed the pulleys. And on a side note I plan on changing the stock 25" tires with some 26" or 27" mud tires. This would be a good reason to upgrade my bike with a clutch kit. It would help turn the bigger tires and I'm guessing it might help with this grinding problem.
      Any help is greatly appreciated. I am handy with a wrench, but I am not a mechanic by trade.
