After months of sitting on a silent and cold beast in the garage, cleaning it, pampering it and just staring at it.:frown: I finally get to take the toys out! I have today and tomorrow off of work including the weekend.:partyc::party2: I'm loading the truck up today to head to Rabbit Valley.:drivingc: This place is commonly know to Colordo riders as the new Moab. Utah gets way to crowded and Rabbit Valley is 80 miles closer. So, my question for all my :cheers2c::sifonec:ESE LOCO riders is, when and where will be your first trip this year be?

If you have been riding all year...SCREW YOU!:aargh:

I just roll out the back-yard and hit the trails heh. I can say if I had to travel 80 miles to ride a toy, it'd be sold. Which is why I don't have a snowmobile.

I have to drive about 90 minutes to ride and just found out our favorite place is closed:

As of Monday March 17, 2008, WoolysOffRoad is closed until environmental repairs can be made to our park. Once we have determined how to correctly repair our issues we will re-open the park. Our hopes are to be open in a few weeks.

I am getting my bike going this weekend. I will find somewhere to ride very soon. I can't wait.

Wooly's is closed? I never did get to ride there while I've lived here...thought about it a few times....

Scott: Do you or have you ever raced the Mid-South Harescramble Series?? Sometimes some of the promoters will let people ride there land for practice...middle tennessee is notorius for having no places to ride....

I can't wait to get back to NY where we can pull the quads out, get geared up and hit the trails up through the back yard :)

I live in the lower catskills in NY and out my back door is about 42 sq miles of woods :partyc: so i ride often:sifonec:

However my first trip will be either to the adirondack mountains to ride or down to the Hatfield McCoy trail system in WV in about a month. With over 500 miles of trails i think it will be Hatfield McCoy for first trip:autoc:

I have never raced or even been to a harescramble. I have wanted to go. I am pretty new to riding also. I didn't get into it but about 5yrs ago. I have just gotten enough rides so my whole family can go. Wooly's it really a great place though. Something for everyone and the people that own and run it are very nice.

We are lucky that we live out in the sticks and between about 5 different farmers that lets us ride on their property we have access to about 8-10 thousand acreas but it gets old riding the same old dirt and gravel turnroads....but it is nice not having to load up just to go get some seat time. During the winter I mostly ride my Grizzly and once the temps get 50 degrees and above I ride my sport quads.

Hey Sc0tt.....does Coal Creek and Windrock require sparkies and do they have any noise requirements or issues?

Racegun I don't believe they do. I just read that Coal Creek has taken back the day to day running of the area. I don't know what or how they will police such things. I doubt the noise restriction but I don't know about the sparkie. It is a heavily wooded area.

Been there and done that one time and never want to do it again.....got caught on a motorcycle with one out in the middle of no where.....wasn't even a ditch to get into....rode for a couple of miles in first gear with both feet dragging the ground just to keep the bike up.

    • The Silent Rider ATV Silencer

      Not sure if I ever posted about this, but every Halloween I hook up my trailer to my ATV and make a hayride for my kids and our neighbor's kids. I've been using The Silent Rider atv silencer as a slip on over my HMF exhaust. It's not perfect put would quiet it down for a few hours while going out trick or treating. the exhaust however was flowing back so I added a snorkel sort off and wrapped the connections with 3M High Temperature Flue Tape which works very well quite frankly.  I pitched the muffler up and came up with this. Worked pretty good but for next year may just weld the connections instead of tape. You can get the silencer on Amazon for @ $200 The tape is under $10.

    • Cleaning/sealing electrical

      Thought I'd throw this one in the club section to help raise the lack of activity here. I'm fixing up a '00 Bayou 220 that I picked up last weekend; needs the carb rebuilt, at least that's all I was hoping it needed. Anyways, decided to check the battery, starter, spark, all that jazz so I was good to go when I got the carb fixed.. and that's when I found an intermittent short in the start switch as well as the headlight switch. So I removed the switch housing from the handlebar to find this: I dismantled the entire assembly, blew it all out with compressed air, cleaned everything including the corroded contacts, and then reassembled it all making sure to put dielectric grease on all the exposed electrical. It looks 1000x better than before and everything works as it should (though I think I installed the kill switch backwards lol).  My question is this: Is that good enough? As a former auto mechanic, I'd always seal any external electronics to prevent dirt, moisture, etc from getting in. However, the design of the housing doesn't really make this possible. I'm not trying to make this thing 100% submersible, but with the switch being old/original I'd like to know it won't fail on me if I get caught in a downpour or something.

    • Cleaning a Nikasil Plated Cylinder

      In this video, Jonathan describes how he cleaned a Nikasil plated cylinder. Aluminum cylinders are often coated with a harder material such as Nikasil (Nickel Silicon Carbide). Over time, the softer aluminum of the pistons can rub off onto the cylinder. When rebuilding the top-end, this should be cleaned off. This can be done using hydrochloric acid which reacts with aluminum to produce hydrogen gas and aluminum chloride, which washed off with water. Since Nikasil is resistant to corrosion, it is undamaged and protects the cylinder during this process. Here is the chemical reaction: 2 Al (s) + 6 HCl (aq) → 2 AlCl3 (aq) + 3 H2 (g)   Resurgence Small Engine Inc. ATV, Snowmachine, Motorcycle, & Outdoor Power Equipment

    • 1993 Kawasaki bayou 400 help been sitting in barn

      I was given a 93 bayou 400 that has been sitting in a barn since some time in 94, hardly any use. The story behind it is the owner poured some gas out of a can full of trash and stopped the carb up. His meth head son took the carb off to rebuild it and got locked up, carb lost in the wind. The bike has been sitting covered ever since. The front rack and bumper has been misplaced but the rest of the bike is there and after washing off some dust it looks like a brand new bike. Still has the little tits on factory dry rotted tires. The old man is supposed to look for the missing parts but I don't have high hopes of them turning up. Just ordered a carb for it and now looking for missing front pieces. My main question is how much in common does the 400 share with the 300? Seems locally the 400 bayous are as rare as unicorn tears but I find 300 parts bikes all over for next to nothing. I looked on fleabay and seems most of the racks and bumpers on there look like they have been in a demo derby and cost way more than I'm willing to spend for something all beat to crap. If I knew the 300 stuff would indeed work I can pick up a whole bike minus the engine locally for $50.  Not tying to do a pebbles beach restro but just a nice atv we can work around the farm on while spending as little as possible. Most likely throw some 26's under it and also let dad deer hunt off it.

      Wienen Makes it Two in a Row at Muddy Creek Raceway ATVMX
      Blountville, Tenn. (April 21, 2012) – Round two of the AMA ATV Motocross National Championship Series headed to Muddy Creek Raceway for round two of the ten-race series. It was Chad Wienen who came out victorious, sweeping both motos of the day and extending his points lead over defending champion John Natalie in the overall standings.

      Harold Goodman took the Moto 1 HoleshotThe ATVRiders.com Fastest Qualifier came from Motoworks/Can-Am’s Joel Hetrick for the second race in a row, as the young Pennsylvania rider showed some of the fastest speeds of the weekend. And ATVMX veteran Harold Goodman shot out to the Moto 1 SSi Decals holeshot, but it was Baldwin Motorports/PEP’s Josh Upperman who got into the early lead before Natalie moved into the lead by lap three. Wienen had a mid-pack holeshot but quickly put himself within striking distance of Natalie’s lead and the duo picked up the intense battle right where they left off at round one. Wienen stalked Natalie until the final lap and once again cut underneath the Ironman to steal the last minute lead and Moto 1 victory as the rain started to fall on the Muddy Creek Raceway terrain.
      Hetrick got off to a bad start but put his Motoworks/Can-Am into the third spot around lap five and kept a comfortable cushion on Upperman, who finished in fourth. Thomas Brown struggled off the start, but worked his way through the pack on his TBROWN Yamaha powered by Moto-X-Perts, where he maintained a fifth place finish, just ahead of Lonestar/SSi Decals rider Nick DeNoble.
      In Moto 2, Wienen took control early on, while Natalie settled into a close second and that’s how they finished. Hetrick started off in fifth place as he passed his way back into the third spot, gunning for the leaders that were less than four seconds away throughout the entire race. Wienen went on to secure his second straight win of the season, while Natalie and Hetrick grabbed the other two podium positions.

      Wienen takes his second straight victory in TN“The new Yamaha is awesome, I’m starting to get more comfortable on it and especially in the mud today, I feel like I barely even rode the thing!” Wienen said. “It’s crazy to think that nine months ago I was laid up in bed and after a lot of hard work and determination we’ve gotten to where were at and I’m just having fun and paying my dues, taking it one race at a time.”
      Although Upperman claimed the SSi Decals Holeshot Award, the Honda rider settled into fourth and maintained that position for the rest of the second moto, going 4-4 for fourth overall for the day.
      Thomas Brown (YAM) finished with a 5-6 score to take fifth overall, just ahead of Joe Byrd (HON), who took home sixth overall. Nick DeNoble (HON) ended the day with seventh place, ahead of Derek Swartfager (HON), while rookie Mark Madl (HON) took ninth and Harold Goodman (HON) rounded out the top ten.

      Owned the Ozark for 7 years before it let me down. Wheel bearings went out. Pretty impressive since it is a bulldozzer / puller / joy rig. Pretty reliable if you ask me.
