    Task Racing battery pack storage.....

    Several of us AOF memebers purchased LED off road lights from @MrTaskRacing . The season is upon us to put these amazing light away for the winter. I realized that I had no idea what amount of charge I had in my helmet light and the light bar! I read through the literature I got, I can't say...

    2018 EX firmware update, then Code 35 & 36

    My Alta riding buddy, @Duncan, brought his 2018 EX over to my shop yesterday. We had planned on updating the FW hoping it would address a rapid charger fault issue. Duncan and I both bought our bikes from the same dealer, a day apart. His bike never went back to the dealer for any updates...

    Rock Guard, old vs new and the problem....

    I'm in the process of freshening up my bike. I installed a new rock guard on the subframe and noticed it didn't fit well. When the wheel is rolled backwards, the rock guard/flap hangs up on the tire. A closer look identified that a production change happened and the rock guards available...

    J Day Offroad, last GP of the season at Southwick.......

    The day started off at a brisk 28 degrees, frost covering the ground. Every stick of wood used to make the Extreme Section was as slick as ice, hard to walk on it without wiping out. For the season finale, the extreme section sported a jersey barrier! Thankfully, the organizers provided a go...

    Can someone with MT......

    Do we have anyone here in the Durham NC area that is willing/able to check out a MXR for sale at a dealer? The potential buyer wants to make sure the bike doesn't have any Code 36 issues. The dealer doesn't have the right version of MT to check for this. The VIN is 419, it's a 2018 MRX demo...

    Map switch..... where to buy?

    MotoSport listed the Trail Tech 8500-RS for sale. I've ordered from them twice, both times they have cancelled my orders. I see Trail Tech does not list the part number on their website any longer. Does any have a suggestion for an online retailer?

    Honda EU2200 issue..

    EDIT: Condition described below is cause by the generator being "Neutral Floating" which by nature does not work with GFCI plugs, such as installed on the Alta chargers. The fix is to use a jumper in the other electrical outlet which connects the ground pin to the neutral pin, thus "bonding"...

    J Day Offroad GP and Hare Scramble at Hemond's, Minot ME

    Coming right off the North East 24 Hour Challenge, we dropped the bus and car trailer for the Dodge pickup and Airstream trailer to head to Maine for the weekend! The bus is a blast to drive, but it's a four speed non-synchro transmission with a super stiff double disc clutch. It's awful in...

    Alta hub spacers, any interest?

    Hello Alta friends and family! Ok, so some time ago I needed to replace the front wheel bearings on my Alta. I found the spacers were grooved out, and subsequently I found out that Warp 9 will not sell them! I drafted up sketches, priced the material, sent it all off to be quoted by a CNC...

    Did anyone place a parts order with Alta, not get the parts they ordered AND did not get refunded?

    When Alta "reopened" for a month or two and took orders to fulfill dealer and customer orders, how many owners placed an order for parts and never got the parts they ordered? AND, how many of those that DID NOT get the parts they ordered DID NOT get their money refunded? If you're not...

    Dal Soggio for 4CS?

    So I nearly died for the last time at this weekends Jday GP at Southwick. My pace has gotten faster and I'm now experiencing/noticing the short comings of the 4CS forks. I'm a solid Novice on any motocross track and can usually keep pace in the woods (except when riding with @Duncan who appears...

    One advantage of an electric bike.........

    @Duncan called me up to see if I had time to ride today. It was last minute, and neither of us had a full charge on our bikes, but a few hours later (and not exactly fully charged bikes) we met at Pachaug State Forest and headed out for a ride! The weather was nice but with all the heavy rain...

    AOF mini rally.... very mini

    Call it what you will, but this past weekend I met up with @Duncan at one of my favorite places to ride, and one of the only legal places on state land, Pachaug State Forest in CT. It was great to met up with a fellow Alta owner! Duncan is, as I expected, a super nice guy and a true motorcycle...

    Hill climbing during our camping trip....

    A couple weekends ago we loaded up the bus, Airstream, bikes and pickup truck to spend a long weekend in the woods of North Eastern CT. This place is about as remote as you can get in CT, the drive in off the road is nearly 2 miles of dirt roads into the middle of this place. Keep in mind this...
