Good Intent ATV Poker Run
« on: August 08, 2016, 12:48:34 PM »

Here is a short video of the 2016 Good Intent ATV Poker Run.  It rained all morning then stopped an hour before we arrived.  The conditions were just about perfect.  One of the valleys was blood bath (mud bath) of machines in various states of stuck.  My machine did overheat 2 times.  There was a place to stop on power wash radiators.  It seemed like there was just too much mud.  Just about every machine in our group of 10 had blocked radiators.  I'm thinking about building a shaker screen or some shaker chains like dirt track cars use to keep the radiator clean.  Overall it was a great day.  Can't wait until next year.

Looks like a good time.  Just an FYI alot of the mud that packs radiators full is due to tires splashing it up into the the radiator.  Some side shields along the radiator will do wonders to help.
I can imagine a world completely at peace.  A world where there are no weapons, no war, and no violence at all.  And I can imagine us taking over that world because they would never expect it.

Mine did not overheat at all.  Barely hit 4 clicks on the gauge all day.   The new designed rear shocks are great,  What a difference in the ride.  The new Duro powergrip tires helped also.

Next one is at the end of August at Rausch Creek.

Yeah very cool. I like hearing good things about these. And I have to say all my suspension bushing mods have paid off not just with removing the squeaks but with a ride that didn't try and toss me out of the cab on my last little ride. It was actually pleasant...for a 53".

LoL @ :55 seconds !!  ;D  Seems to me like you would benefit greatly from a half windshield on a ride such as that. Man, I have been asking my riding group to do a poker run for YEARS now, and every damn time I get the same answer - nahh, we just wanna ride, not play cards ... arghhh !!!  :o

I actually pulled the half windshield off 5 minutes before starting this poker run.  Best. Decision. Ever.  It was way too hot of day, I wanted maximum airflow.  Second, the girlfriend cant see over the half windshield, she looks through it.  It was completely covered with mud by mile 3.  There was no way I was going to spend my day cleaning that thing.  There is a reason no off road vehicle ever came with a windshield.  I think these guys running front and rear glass in the summer are crazy.  It was a great time. 

That puddle at :55 and the ones following it are what did my radiator in.  It started getting hot at the 10 mile mark.  I stopped in a creek and started shoveling water on the oil cooler to clean it out.  Once clean it ran at 3 bars until I started smashing puddles again.

At 3:44 I came across an slightly intoxicated girl that lost her husband.  She didn't know if he was ahead or behind us.  She asked for a ride, and I asked her how far she was going.  She half climbed in the back and I gave took her about 1 mile up the trail.  Her group wasn't there.  I don't think she ever found her husband.  I figure she is still walking through the woods with an eternal can of Coors Light.  She still may be wandering next year.

LMAO .. great story  ;D  I saw that and was assuming she had a few too many trail beverages.

just an FYI bezerk1...You may have gotten the radiator clean enough to get you through the ride but cleaning it out after the ride can be troublesome.  Also mud builds up in there because what happens is dirt/mud carried in the water splash up in the rad fins and hit the hot cores and the water evaporates and leaves the mud/silt/dirt to bake into a weak clay pot like shell on the cores. Depending on the mud/water it can be a slow build up that allows you to keep riding but some places (WV in particular) that stuff can fully stop up your rad in a couple hours and you will overheat in no time flat.  Here is a tool I made to clean out my radiator on my rhino when i had it but the same process applies to all off road things.  I know some guys that let it build up and they had to end up pulling their radiators completely out of the rig and soak them for a day or 2 to get the build up to come off.

I can imagine a world completely at peace.  A world where there are no weapons, no war, and no violence at all.  And I can imagine us taking over that world because they would never expect it.

Your logic is 100 percent correct. It took hours for my machine to slowly heat up.  By the time the ride was over I probably lost half of my cooling capacity due to blocked fins.

You do much of that might be beneficial to relocate all that to the back cage.

I don't think I would mount my radiator to the cage.  There is a very real possibility of a branch, stick, log or some other debris going through it if mounted up and in the open.  Hot antifreeze and a fan that close to my head is a concern.  I consider the mud blockage a driver error.  It was totally preventable.

If anyone remembers the old VW beetle windshield washers, they were "powered" by the air from the spare tire.  Just wondering if a similar setup would work for cleaning the rad while on a trail.  Small are tank or spare tire, water tank under the hood....hmmm

We used a chemical sprayer at work that was just a 12v pump much like what an RV uses but puts out 100lbs of pressure. Only pulled about 6 amps but would spray well enough to clean a radiator. The thing is..you would need to take the water supply with you but I guess with a small screen you could use the ice-melt from your cooler.

Here's one for 20 bucks...and puts out 130psi:

Just need a wand from a pump-up sprayer with a moded tip and some hose.

I have been thinking about something like this to add to may camper cause I always have too much water with me anyway.. and it would be great to have a way to spray-down the moto between rides sometimes...especially the windshield.
