Video from last Saturday on the Denton Trails...PONDS!
By Frank Angerano
So with this mess going on outside and the stay at home thing happening i wanted to ask who's getting what done around there house, apartment and property or toys?
I honestly cannot believe what my wife and i have accomplished over the last few weeks. Unfortunately we have worked ourselves out of work!!! I have to give all the credit to my daughter for the below listed work. She came to me a few weeks back and said daddy since we are stuck in the house can we do my room over. I was in a keep away from everyone hunker down and lets just get through this Coronavirus mess. She changed the entire direction of our mood and how we would push through this. I have painted all the kids rooms and did a make over per say for each of there rooms. While the painting shit was out i decided to continue and paint the moldings over with one coat of semi gloss in the entire house. After that we decided to tear the closets and drawers apart and sort out all clothing, donate what we are not keeping etc. I picked up a couple of shoe racks to organize my sneaker collection from BJ's $20 bucks for a 3 tier rack. Cleaned every nook and cranny of the house, windows, walls, radiators, ceiling fans you name it including pulling the furniture out and getting behind everything! (Scary back there) lol. Shit we even did the inside of the oven with easy off! That stuff is no joke btw..... I assure you we are clean people but after pulling the furniture out and the oven and refrigerator i have to say we need to do better with that shit. We decided to go to the back yard and see what we could do. I went ahead and painted the foundation walls, added mulch and set the furniture up, bbq included. I added some cool light stringers across the yard as well from Amazon. We are looking at what to do in the front of the house next. We made a list and tackle a little each day, Saturday and Sunday are big task days. Im still working so afternoon tasks are maybe an hour or two each day. We have been very productive to say the least. I feel like this is the perfect time to make the best of a bad situation and it keeps our mind off of the shit going on in the world while we work. This may sound like a lot but making a list and tackling realistic goals at the end of each day works well. Plus a lot of 🍺 and 🍷!!!!! The kids have been helping out big time and we try to keep it fun. We hopefully will never have the chance to do this again but i was wondering who's doing what if anything at all. Our regards go out to anyone that have been affected by this virus weather it be family or friends. I recommend making early trips to Home Depot and BJ's and the grocery stores to stay away from crowds and lines, its a ghost town early in the morning. Believe it or not that Suzuki Eiger is fixed but still needs to be put back together and here i am on Quadcrazy asking who's doing what around the house but the Suzuki can wait for a little while.
Keep ya head up and stay motivated!!!!

I know the piston has to be at TDC, but there is no marks on the cam gear. i kinda figured that when the one bolt is up the cam lobes are down, not touching the rocker arms. i want to know if this is how to do it? someone give me an answer.
I thought I would make a quick "How-to" on setting wheel alignment since I was flipping my tie rod ends and I was going to have to re-align the wheels anyways.
Here's some of the tools you will need...
1.) Start with the ATV on a smooth and level surface, like a cement garage floor or driveway.
2.)Center up (Eyeball It) the handle bars and lock them into place with 2 ratchet straps, one on each side of handle bars. This of course prevents them from moving when your adjusting the tie-rods.
3.) Place two Jack Stands approximately 2 feet in front of the atv even with the outside edge of the two front wheels.
4.) Wrap a length of string all the way around the ATV and Jack Stands, Start and end at the rear hitch. Make sure the string is the same height from the ground on all 4 wheels. I like to attach a few elastic bands to both ends of the string before attaching the string to the hitch. This makes it easier to adjust the strings when moving the Jack Stands.
4.) Break lose the inner and outer tie-rod nuts. NOTE! Make sure you use 2 wrenches, one on the nut and one on the ball joint. Damage can occur by only using one wrench.
5.) Adjust the string by moving the Jack Stands in or out untill the string just touches both of the side surfaces of the rear tires on each side of the ATV. This will take some time to get it right but it needs to be done!
Check manufacturers wheel alignment specifications on your specific make and model before you adjust any components.
For this wheel alignment I'm using the Polaris Specs which seems to be a common setting.
Polaris - The recommended toe alignment is 1/8″ to 1/4″ toe out. This is a total amount, not per wheel.
6.) On the front rim, measure the distance from the string to the rim at the front and rear edges of the rim. The rear measurement should be 1/16″ - 1/8″ (.2 to .3 cm) more than the front measurement.
7.) If an adjustment is necessary, Turn the tie rod itself with a wrench or your hand in small increments. It doesn't take much to move the tire a long way, so go slow. Keep re-checking your measurement's until you have a 1/16″ - 1/8″ differance to the string.
6.) Once your satisfied that you have the correct "Toe Out" measurements you can tighten up the inner and outter tie-rod nuts on both sides. AGAIN...make sure to use 2 wrenches.
7.) Now take your ATV for a test drive to test your adjustments. If it still pulls one way or the other, just repeat the above steps to tweek the adjustments again utill your happy.
The whole process only takes about 15-20 min.
So a few weeks ago I had an extremely nasty crash during practice. I completely separated my shoulder. Stage 3 separation, the worst you can do without tearing muscle too. This thing will not heal itself, on March 17th I will be getting surgery to repair my shoulder...
Just wanted to share the news.
Here is what i did.
Type III shoulder separation
