I haven't been active on this site for a few years, but if anyone is still here from when I used to frequent and annoy everyone...
It is sad for me to say that one of the members I met here has passed...
Paul Hagen...went by Lars Hagehaugen on Facebook...
I do not know how active he was here before he passed...
Even if you didn't know him, give him a quick thought in your heart and hope that one day cancer can become a very distant memory in our history...
I know we all aren't Patriots fans, but today in the new I heard that Tom Brady tore his ACL and will be out for the season for surgery. This means, he will probably never play profession football ever again. I just wanted to get this out as I am on the patriots side, and i would like to see him play again. Probably not. Ok now I'm done, what does everybody think about this situation?
So, on July 3, 2008 at 11:50am my Uncle Don fell victim to the big "C". Just a few weeks ago the doctors found some cancer in his spine. Within 3 weeks it had travelled to his brain. From this point they gave him about 3 days. Well on the 2nd they told us he had about 20 hours left. So the family rallied together and was there by his side when he met his maker. I was not able to be by his side but he knows that I loved him very much.
Uncle Don, you were a huge part of my life and you will be missed by everyone who had the pleasure of meeting you. I'm sorry I wasn't there with you but I love you very much. You are now up there with grandpa having a cold one laughing at the big babies crying for you. GodSpeed
Sorry, this was some closure for me.
So I've had my bro-in-law's 4 wheeler to get it running again.
Ended up buying a new aftermarket carb, cleaning fuel tank, cleaning petcock and it works near perfectly .
put the petcock to PRI for about 5 seconds , turn it back to on, pull full enrichener , start it up (starts right up), slowly release the enrichener and put it in gear and go up down the road. Slow, fast, idle etc all good
BUT then out of the blue it will start missing badly (by this time the motor is hot), to the point I can't move the ATV.
Then out of the blue, maybe 30 seconds later, it is back to normal and I can go up and down the road for testing just fine.
I'm trying to get the ATV in tiptop shape to return to him, but bugged by this miss, I'm sure this machine will come back to me if it keeps missing...
Thanks in advance
BTW I am mechanically inclined, but not an expert on this atv...

Rubicon Trail Update: Water Quality Board Meets - Rubicon Stays Open
SACRAMENTO, CA (April 27) - The Rubicon Trail is open and OHV recreation is sustained on this icon of four-wheeling, according to the Rubicon Trail Foundation (RTF) and Friends of the Rubicon (FOTR). The Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board (CVRWQCB) voted unanimously to issue a Cleanup and Abatement Order (CAO) to El Dorado County and the Eldorado National Forest for the world-famous Rubicon Trail that sustains motorized recreation while enhancing stewardship of the trail.
Not only did the Board enact an order that recreationists can live with, but they also went so far as to praise the efforts of the volunteers for addressing trail issues in such a prompt manner all these years.
The Rubicon Trail traverses the mighty Sierra Nevada Mountains of California from roughly Georgetown, CA to Lake Tahoe, CA. Water runoff and erosion are always concerns on trails in the west, but thanks to the efforts of all the clubs and members of Friends of the Rubicon in partnership with Eldorado County, landowners and the USFS, the Rubicon Trail is well maintained.
"FOTR has invested thousands of hours of organized trail work and maintenance since our beginning in 2001," said Del Albright, co-Founder and Trail Boss, Friends of the Rubicon. "We are well-prepared to address any concerns or issues on this famous trail, and we are working towards a future of stewardship we can all be proud of," Albright added.
Greg Mumm, Executive Director of the BlueRibbon Coalition, pointed out that "BlueRibbon has sponsored Del's leadership of efforts on the Rubicon Trail since the beginning, and we are confident that FOTR can handle this like they have everything else thrown at this famous trail."
The Rubicon Trail Foundation is the 501©3 non-profit organization dedicated to supporting efforts on the Rubicon Trail. They led the effort to ensure the Water Board understood all trail issues. RTF has position statements covering many aspects of trail use on the Rubicon, including topics like water quality, sanitation, camping, and year-round use.
The Rubicon Trail Foundation does not support the blanket restriction of Rubicon Trail use by season, or by vehicle numbers, type or size. Further, the Rubicon Trail Foundation encourages the establishment of reasonable and practical operating procedures for training of volunteer groups and others to install and maintain trail drainage structures, stream crossings and new trail segments.
Other issues being addressed by the dedicated volunteers of FOTR and RTF include mitigating oil spills and managing human waste. The Rubicon Trail Foundation supports requiring every Rubicon Trail user to carry portable human waste disposal devices and requiring every motorized user to carry oil spill kits.
The Rubicon Trail Foundation works hand in hand with the Friends of the Rubicon and together, with the agency partners, these groups are ensuring an access-friendly future for the Rubicon Trail.
"We look forward to implementing this order from the Water Quality Board in conjunction with our great partners in the county and USFS, because we all will benefit, and our trail will stay open, alive and well," Albright concludes.
