  1. I can't even talk shit on this one... only thing is, I said "write ups" not "videos". Those are different in English. 😆That was good though. You're still a dick.

  5. Where can I find some decent write ups on 2 stroke porting and what effects different geometries have and why?
  6. I can't help with any of the engine stuff. Mine is stock but all I ride are wooded trails here. I live in NH. The tight handling suck with a +2 swing arm. I went back to stock length roundhouse. You already have the widened axle and a arms. Your suspension adjustment would possibly have to be tweaked if you're going to do some of the areas here in NH like clough/dunbarton or jericho. I ride the shit the 4x4 guys think they own and always get stuck behind them. One thing I did that I am happy about that most people would argue is the larger tires. I run 22 rear and 23 front. Now I am having to completely readjust my front end for it. The biggest piece of advice I can give you for NH trails is, at minimum, a rear skid plate. It doesn't look like you have one in the photos but you will need one. If you've ridden here in NH I am sure you already know.
  7. What the fuck?! By what measure? [emoji23] They are calling all of the empty positions available due to the mass exodus from the workforce due to the clown virus “job creation” for biden. The only way they can scrape anything positive from this admin is to leave out most of the facts and manipulate what’s left. And they still can’t put trump down without making shit up. It’s sad how pathetic our society has become. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. You already got a good starting point in an above answer. I'm not a banshee expert by any means but just dealing with the lack of idle issue and only assuming everything else is in tact, there are a few things you should check. How are your reeds? How is your compression? You went from a cracked air box to almost completely unrestricted air with the pods. Get the 27.5 pilots and a handful of main jets from size 280 to 320. I personally try to start rich on jetting and work my way down. Others might have a different way but that is just what I do. Put the 27.5 pilots in and put the needle on the 3rd groove down. Middle groove on stock needles. (don't use the toomey needle). start with the air mixture 1.5 turns out. There isn't really a factory idle setting on the tors units. I removed mine right after buying my banshee. You have a sync tool, right? If not sync them by the windows on the side of the carb. Look at the slides and move the throttle slightly and make sure the slides move in sync. Then buy a sync tool. They are cheap and easy to use. Once you have it idling, set the air mixture. set them equally. I can't help you hear what it sounds like when you have them set right. It will sound like it is getting sluggish as you turn the screws in going toward rich. And you'll get a dry sounding bog as you turn them the other way in the lean zone. You want to shoot for that little spot right between lean and rich. Lean condition will have a dry sounding bog when you blip the throttle, will take a second to get a good reaction from the throttle and your rpms will hang and not settle properly. When they drop, the bike might even die completely. A good way to check if it is lean in this case is to half choke it. If it improves, you are definitely lean. If it dies completely, you're rich. Again, this is assuming you have checked for leaks and compression. For main jets you have to do plug chops and read your smoke rings. There are a million videos and way better posts on plug chops and carb tuning here than what i can give you but it's really not that hard. Just have to play with it til its doing what you expect it to do and your plugs look right after doing the chops.
  9. Checking my schedule and it looks like I won't GAF tomorrow either

  10. Yeah but there’s a difference Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Whatever you say Claude. You’re useless. And there is nothing you could ever possibly know that will even remotely be above me. Tell yourself whatever you want but the reality is, you post a bunch of trash in response to serious questions, your garbage on this thread makes you look like an absolute clown, and you sought this out today like a dumb ass. Go think up something useful. I’m done with you, douche bag. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. And you have nothing to say for a dude who has been here for over 6 years and has posted 6000 times. I’ve never seen anything useful come from you. You told me you were done with me. Remember? So why in the hell are you still going out of your way to engage? [emoji23] Who’s under who’s skin, pillow biter? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  15. Claude, since you decided to hijack a thread from someone who actually DOES contribute here, I figured I’d bring it back here. Otherwise people might realize what a massive cunt you actually are. By the way, don’t worry about formulas or headaches til you figure out the formula needed to get all of your teeth marks out of your boyfriend’s pillows and avoid hitting your head on his head board. For being such a tough ass, you sure are a… well I’m sure you can fill in the rest. And remember when you told me I’ll get used to HQ? Maybe I will. I don’t think you ever will tho.

  18. Always interested. I always have access to the shop when I am off the clock. Just depends on how involved it gets. I make tons of parts, build fixtures, jigs, gauges and progressive stamping dies. Piece work is always pretty easy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. I can’t either. [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. What’s “ew” about it? [emoji23] 2 wheels or KTM? KTMs are awesome! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. My first street bike was an R1. Haha. Bought it out of high school. Had to because I dumped it on the test ride. Fixed it. Learned to ride it and then hit a deer. [emoji23] I have a Road King now but miss the sport bikes. Only dirt bikes I ever had were a YZ80 and a CZ Falta 400. This KTM scares me a little. Like the banshee did when I first got it.

  23. I just checked the scrub radius again and it really does seem the KPI is dead center. It totally makes sense, the different points of adjustment. I haven’t trigged everything out yet but with your write up and this thread, I am pretty confident I can make a decent project out of it. A lot of people seem to give up and convert their entire quad back to OEM or retrofit front ends from other quads. I’d rather set it up with what I have for a couple of reasons. Main reason: I already spent the money. [emoji23] But I’d like to know I can do it. I’m a tool and die maker so the math makes sense to me as well as picturing the results of certain adjustments. I appreciate all your help and time! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. Oh yeah, I measure the ride height from right in front of the pegs. And right behind the A Arms before the slight upward bend in the frame. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
