Re: Carb behavior question

https://www.thumpertalk.com/forums/topic/271735-how-to-confirm-your-pilot-circuit-setting/ Sounds like good advise here. Does the bike bog off the bottom or pull strong?

Re: DAMN Reunion 19-21 May 2017

The key is to tag the log with the front wheel just after you start to wheelie. If you don't do this the wheel almost always slaps down and causes you to loose a lot of momentum. If you tap the front wheel the log will transfer energy causing the front to float up so when the rear hits it levels th...

Re: KAT Lodging and Transport
