:lol: I know you were kidding, but I'm legally required to give you a hard time. If Todd at 170 had a hard time, I'm not going to make it being 270. :retard:
Enigma it's really no big deal no matter how steep the hill, just have to turn before the momentum is gone. Know when to fold them and all. (Kenny Rogers song just popped into my head). That's the nice thing about a wide dune is there is room to turn off, not like riding trails in Bend.
Heck I made it up Sand Mountain Utah's hill with my stock V and 22" gecko's. Added about 200 feet to the climb because I had to zigzag but made it. With the 24" extremes it was still slow but no problem. V's are climbers!
I'd much rather have the ltr going down though, the brakes on v's just plain suck.
metal that is a lot of whench work in 30 mins, sounds like you and your V have a pretty intimate relationship :lol: if this trip is anything like the trips to the Oregon dunes with these guys it won't be necessary for you to do all that wrenching because they will just throw you on one of the "other" bikes :nod: for a regular ride, and lots of 4wd trucks in the group too.
four bolts, loosen the carb boot clamps, take off the one screw holding on the throttle bracket... blower, scoop, and carbs comes off in one peice.. Change out the gas and slap the stock carbs on there, which takes zero bolts.... pump gas 730.
