    Stored Bike Won't Start

    Can anyone help me figure this one out. I have a 450X that has not been run in 60 days and now won't start. Compression is good, spark is good, but the spark plug is dry!

    Got a seat if you got a week

    I'm heading down to San Juanico to do a pit. I've got an open shotgun seat for anyone that wants to roll down with our crew and enjoy a week in Baja. Crossing Wed 0700 in TJ and returning Mon or Tues. We can switch off driving and riding my 450X down and back.

    What helmet setup do you recommend for a bike setup?

    I have a radio and want to get a helmet headset and harness setup for my bike. I see that PCI has a pretty nice package for $240 which seems to have everything I need. Just looking around the Interweb, there seem to be many (much lower priced) options. I figure there's got to be some quality...

    Tube Keeps Losing Air - Please Help

    I recently put Bridgestone Ultra Heavy Duty tubes and Maxxis Desert tires on my 450x. For some reason, which I can't find, I'm slowly losing air, to the tune of over One (1) Lb per DAY! I put 15 lbs in last night and this morning it's down to 13. I know that air loss is normal, but i would...

    Newbie - Suspension Upgrade for '96 Jeep Grand Cherokee

    Alternative to PCI radio harness?

    I'm thinking of buying a helmet radio setup, including harness and PTT for my bike from PCI. It sounds like these guys have it pretty dialed in, and you can upgrade to the "race" version that is a bit more $$ but apparently more durable. My question is whether it's possible to buy the parts...
