The Place / SoCal OTMX and OTHG @ LACR on Sunday 6/30
« on: June 23, 2019, 04:38:42 PM »
OTHG will be at LACR on Sunday, 6/30 and SoCal OTMX will be joining them. The racing will be on the main track.

Come on out and race with either club, or better yet, race with both clubs and get a full 4 motos in!!

The long range weather is showing a high of 97, with around 87 at race start. So if you are planning to go, don't forget to hydrate properly. There is plenty of info out there on the web about proper hydration.

The Place / Speaking of red sticker...
« on: June 21, 2019, 08:19:32 PM »
So, as I stated before, I was actually pissed that my 2019 Honda TRX250x quad is a red sticker quad when the 2018, which is exactly the same, has a green sticker. Yeah, that was my bad, but also blame the dealer for not disclosing this little fact!!  :?

Well, Yamaha came out with their new 2019 WR450F, but it's also a red sticker bike!! Something to do with the evaporative canister and although this bike is supposed to have a green sticker, due to that issue which had not been resolved as the bike came to market, you might be buying a red stickered bike.

So if you are in the market for one, don't assume that it is a green sticker bike. Maybe the issue has been resolved by now, but be sure to ask the dealer, and have it in writing that you can return it and get a full refund if it's not a green sticker bike.

Did you do all this because there was an issue or just as preventive maintenance?

Mostly preventative maintenance, but last week the bike felt like it was running out of gas for a couple of seconds and then it was fine. The small hose filter is supposed to be changed every 10 hrs and the pump filters are supposed to be done at least annually. I've had the bike around 3 years now and have 140 hrs on it. Those filters had never been changed since I've owned the bike.

The big filter did look pretty dirty, and the internal screen has some fuzz type stuff on a part of it. The hose filter also seemed somewhat dirty. Plan to ride on Thursday, so I'll see if I can tell any difference.

So there is a fuel filter and a fuel screen on the fuel pump inside the tank and one inline tiny filter on the hose from the tank to the FI. WTF!! Guess is better than getting crap inside the FI unit.

Actually, it wasn't too bad replacing the filters, but you do need something to crimp the hose clamps for the big pump filter inside the tank (yes, you take the whole pump unit out of the tank to work on it). I was lucky, as I already had a Pex crimping tool that worked fine. Overall about maybe an hour because I did some other cleaning since I had the tank off.

But, no matter how good your battery is, after putting everything back together, the engine will just crank and crank but will not start AT ALL, until you connect the fuel hose from the tank to the hose from the FI unit.....  :shock: :oops: :roll: :D

The Place / REM Sat 6/15 at GH

REM is back at GH this Sat June 15. Light breeze and partly cloudy with temps in the high 70s to low 80s. The layouts have been a lot of fun, so it should be another great day of racing.

Well bud, hoping for the best for you. We don't bounce back like we used to, but we do bounce back, just a little slower!!

Who else is in?

Remember, REM is there tomorrow on the Vet track, so parking might be tight up top.

Reasonable price for a custom street fighter. I like the attention to detail with the nice tail lights on the swing arm. Love the custom, hand made long range gas tank. The scuff marks on the rims give it character, and really like the no nonsense, light weight seat.

Overall, a great bike for cruising the streets of your favorite city.....

The Place / Milestone Tuesday??
