  1. BLUERIBBON COALITION, INC. MEDIA RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: Del Albright, BlueRibbon Ambassador Phone: (209) 304-7693 Email: [email protected] Date: April 27, 2009 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. More information on RTF position statements, mission, and the CAO is available at Welcome to Rubicon Trail Foundation - or by emailing Board Director Scott Johnston at [email protected] # # # The BlueRibbon Coalition is a national recreation group that champions responsible recreation, and encourages individual environmental stewardship. It represents over 10,000 individual members and 1,200 organization and business members, for a combined total of over 600,000 recreationists nationwide. 1-800-258-3742.

    Getting it out

  7. 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.

    300 King Quad Running Problem

    Good after noon everyone, new here and really sure how to post anythang or get back to the topic I was lookn for so maybe u quad fans can help me out. I've got a 300 king quad that I really need info on. It's drivin me nuts . It starts and idles great but when I give it gas it spits and sputters. Anyone that could help me get lined out on this forum and my old quad u be a blessing .
  9. I have a 2001 90 Scrambler, runs for about 50 feet & dies, after it stops electric starter barely spins it, kicks over fine but won't start again for about 5 minutes, then same thing. I just got thru installing new piston & jug, new carb with electric choke. Just needed to replace the choke it wasn't working right but I thought I was purchasing just the choke but was surprised when the new carb came in, FYI the new carb is longer in height than the original if anyone thinks that might be the issue. Tried moving the needle around , check gas petcock getting good gas.. I installed piston with arrow pointing down or front of motor.....I am baffled. Need a Good problem solver!!!! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Hi congrats on a great site.
  13. Yeah!!!!:bouncing_smiles:Glad to be back on here. Those website issues had kept me away for a little. :thatwasgay: All seems to be working well again, so what has everyone been up to?:cheer:
  14. My wife got me a winch during the black friday sell I hope to get it mounted tomarrow. We've had lots of rain so I might get a chance to try it out If i get it installed.
  15. I took the old prairie out and had some fun but it was hot today so I cut my ride time down. Came home and was going to rest I knew I should have came in the house & not stay in the garage. Now the xr100's motor is out of the bike and the top end is apart.

    Good tast

    Had to go get a few parts for the bike so my daughter was checking out the new quads! We looked at the Raptor 250 & 700 then a Polaris 200 she said the 200 would be ok. Then she picked 1 without any adult input. Santa is to poor but the winner was the Polaris 850 with camo body It broke my heart when she said no to the BF750.

    A Good Read For All

    I found this and thought it would be of interest to some members ... Don’t Let it Happen to You A few short years ago the off-road world was enamored with 2-strokes thanks to their reputed simplicity and performance. Then, seemingly overnight, the four-stroke mill resurfaced and has since taken over nearly every aspect of the performance-quad segment. To many long-time 2-stoke devotees, the concept of valves, cam chains, and wide, flat pistons threw them for a loop. There is no denying the reality that more moving parts equals higher rebuild costs, but there’s no reason to forget everything you’ve learned throughout the years in diagnosing a tired engine as a result. The following report is designed to shed some light on what to look for specifically if you’re uncertain whether or not it’s time for a four-stroke rebuild. Remember that it’ll save you money if you catch the problem before it actually fails. A Game of Hours If you just brought home your new ATV, take advantage of the fact that it’s yet unridden and pick up an hour meter. If that’s beyond your means, keep a log of time spent in the saddle. There’s no more an accurate means of determining when you’re due for a rebuild then by keeping track of the hours on the motor. Your ATV’s owner’s manual will provide intervals (usually on the conservative side) as to how often you should be freshening up the internals. Keep in mind that racing will speed up wear while gentle trail riding will extend service life. Condition Induced Guilt In keeping with the first entry, be honest with yourself (even if the hour meter says you’re still in the good zone). Have you been neglecting oil changes or racing with caked on mud? Have you flogged your quad in the sand/dust? Have you let air filter maintenance slide or ran the ATV without realizing it was low on coolant? These are all factors that can greatly accelerate time between rebuilds. Lend Me Your Ear Especially detectable at idle (beneath the rumble of the exhaust note); listen for clunking, thumping, or rattling sounds in the top-end. This is especially important if a sound you don’t remember hearing before suddenly pops up during a ride. Remember that not all four-stroke noises mean catastrophe: A loose flywheel or stretched cam chain are common culprits to the rattles. However, in either case, tightening down or replacing the worn bits can avert a full-on engine failure. Compression Depression Sorry to break it to you, but that old compression gauge that told you when the piston in your 2-smoke was due for a replacement doesn’t work on a modern four-stroke. This one has become a shop specialty, as most will have a leak-down tester capable of measuring static compression. Read Your Oil In the modern four-stroke, there are few indicators as valuable or as accurate as reading the lubrication-fluid that had just spent time circulating among the engine’s internals. If you’re suddenly spotting excessive debris in the bottom of the oil pan after a change it could very well indicate trouble. Also smell the oil being drained (even if it still looks fairly clean). If it smells burnt or like fried-clutch, it may be time to freshen things up. Clearance Items It turns out the manufacturers don’t provide the clearances of certain engine components just to be fancy. By checking these numbers, you can easily tell if things have worked themselves out of whack. Begin with valve lash and work your way into the internals with piston ring end gap, skirt clearance, and rod and valve guides. Hard Starting Four-stroke engines will often let you know something’s wrong a little bit before a full meltdown by refusing to fire up. If your quad suddenly seems harder to start or requires much more cranking than usual, take heed. Poor compression or improper valve clearance are often to blame. The Rest of the Quad If you’re still in the dark as to whether it’s time to consider a rebuild, take a look at the rest of your quad. Have you burned the knobs off the stock rear tires? Have you replaced the original brake pads yet? Is everything else in need of a refresher? A simple way to get a rough estimate as to how many hours are on the motor itself is to factor against the more-frequent maintenance performed. No Smoking Zone Yes it was perfectly natural to trail exhaust smoke in the 2-stroke days but if your four is puffing clouds, not a good sign! If your quad suddenly decides to take up the smoking habit, it’s possible the valves/ guide seals are starting to fail. Even more likely is that the piston rings have worn to the point where they no longer seal against the cylinder wall.

    First good ride

    WoooHoooo I got a 45 min. to an hour ride in with my wife on the back. Only real pain for my hand was the front brake. I still can't open twist off lids but I can ride. We even got a little muddy. 2 nights ago we had sleet & 50's yesterday & 60's today. I plan to ride tomarrow if my sinus clear up. I got a video of the ride I will post it later. It's good to be back on the quad.

    Good news

    A lot of you know I had to buy a nonrunning quad to get a replacement frame for my prairie 650. I paid 300.00 today I sold all the left over parts for 200.00 The stuff was worth more than that I'm sure but at the same time I don't have too part it out and wait for buyers and shipping no ads no calls to deal with & I get all the stuff out of my way and get that part of my garage back.
  20. Another sign that I am way to hyperactive. I was given the honor of being the January 2012 Goalie of the Month at SMALLSAVES.COM. Make sure to visit and check it out and feel free to comment.
  21. I met a new neighbor this evening he has a forman & a wamaha waptor he just got. So I might have a riding friend woo hooo!!!
