Last year a buddy and I took a 1300 mile trip around Colorado /r/dualsport ride on a Husqvarna 701 and a Yamaha WR250R. Here's a photo of the gear from last year.

This year we are adding one person (riding a monster, brand new, KTM 1090 Adventure R) to the crew and moving a little farther west to see some of the amazing sites in Utah. I put together a 1500 mile route, and will tack on White Rim Trail (if we can get passes) and wander around in Beef Basin for a bit.

A few of my friends have started using Polar Steps, so I've setup a trip and will try to keep it updated. I also maintain a simple website and will post photos on my flickr account.

Now, on to the fun, because sorting out gear and packing is half the fun of a /r/motocamping trip.

I'm involved in volunteer search and rescue (/r/searchandrescue) so a lot of this gear comes from my callout pack and extended incident command packs. The more experienced riders will notice that I'm lacking any tools, spares, tube slime, etc. I'm fortunate enough to be riding with 2 other riders that are packing all that jazz.

Two mottos:

  1. buy once, cry once
  2. high speed, low drag

Should you? Maybe. Would I? No. But I would add some Ride On Sealant.

The only reason I can see to actually change out the tubes is to prevent a catastrophic flat. The sealant mitigates that for the most part. I use it in my HD tubes, but I wouldn't bother changing out a perfectly good tube, but if you decide you want to, I'd still use the sealant (it also balances your tire).

Have fun, ride safe!

As someone who's spent hours in the sun changing a tube on the trail by himself, my biggest suggestions are:

  • Bring one or two smaller irons and one biggun. A good 16" iron like this one from MotionPro totally changes the game. That leverage comes in really handy.
  • I feel like you said in the comments that sitting it in the sun didn't seem to help much, but if you get a flat after hours of riding in the sun that shit will be 2x as pliable as a cold tire, so don't stress too much about it being as tough as a brand-new tire at home.
  • Get an enduro trail stand, especially if your bike has a floating caliper that you have to wrestle with. This one is my favorite. Won't help you change the tire of course, but it makes the other 50% of the job a LOT less painful. Having one of these is like a godsend when you're tired and hot.
  • Make good, thoughtful choices. Tires can be very frustrating but it's better to move carefully and avoid stress, overheating, or accidents when you're in the middle of nowhere. If it's hot take the time to strip your gear off, grab some water, and take inventory of your tools. Take a breather. Slowly make yourself a nice work area, preferably in the shade, that is flat and free of brush and leaves that you could lose parts or tools under. Put yourself in 'workshop' mode instead of 'emergency' mode. Give yourself a break between major steps and come back to it refreshed. Maintaining your own cool will help you deal physically and mentally.

Do yourself a favor and get a motorycyle lift. A damn good investment, I assure you. Makes cleaning and maintenance much,much easier. Especially cleaning and lubing the chain.

Having the bike lifted of the ground would be great for winter time storage, as well, as it will take pressure of the suspension and tires; allowing you to avoid getting flat spots on the tires from sitting for a long time.

Plus, bikes looks cool af on a lift.

u/Enduro_Jeff · 2 pointsr/Dualsport

Start with a metric wrench set, and a Metric Socket set, I would get 6 Pt sockets instead of 12, so you don't strip things. Then also screwdrivers, and a hammer.

The common sizes you need are 8, 10, 12, 14, 22 is the front axle nut, 27 is the rear.

These metric drivers make life so easy.

Also something like these T handled metric Hex Key. Having different colors makes it super easy to just reach and get the right tool you need.

Also I would get tire iron set. And a bead buddy2 For changing tires.

It's an Emgo trunk. It mounts on a base plate on top of the rack and it's detachable, so it can be carried as a separate case. It can also be locked. I love it and absolutely recommend it.

Emgo 72-32440 Travel Trunk

u/Aedelmann · 2 pointsr/Dualsport

That's a good point. Luckily I don't necessarily use my handlebar charger to charge my phone, I really just use it to keep my phone "topped off" as I usually start riding with a full battery and just rely on the charger to keep it charged while running GPS and what not. I'm considering trying this piece instead as it looks pretty high quality and puts out 3.1A.

u/frank3000 · 1 pointr/Dualsport

It's a good learning experience. Sure maybe a little frustrating but nothing a little elbow grease and an hour can't solve. I use the three Motion Pro tire irons, and they're small enough to take on the road too. I fill my tubes with Slime now though.. just pulling out the nail or cactus spikes and riding on sure is easier than taking the wheel and tire off on the side of a trail..

u/Atomic_Bicycle · 2 pointsr/Dualsport

It's an ancient art passed down from KLR rider to KLR rider. I recently came into some money, so I splurged on the $60 locking trunk from Amazon. Thankfully, it still retains the all-plastic soul of the milk crate. However, it is fancy enough that all my friends keep calling me things like, "moneybags," and asking me to buy them gas or lunch...

u/sp_40 · 3 pointsr/Dualsport

I run a hitch stabilizer ( which helps to significantly reduce the amount of play between your hitch and the carrier itself. That and some quality straps helps to keep everything snug and solid.

RAM Mounts (RAM-HOL-PD3U) Universal Spring Loaded Cell Phone Cradle Holder

You will also need to get the following items:

Ram ball diamond plate: this is so you can mount the phone holder to the arm

Ram arm: so you can adjust the orientation of the mount, they sell many lengths.

Ram mount: this is the final ball which you mount to your bike. They have handle bar balls, the have ones that mount under your mirror, they have ones that mount to the brake master, and so on. Use the RAM website to find all these things, and then Google the part number for the cheapest prices!

Happy riding!

u/Murmuzy · 1 pointr/Dualsport

Ah yes I just found it on Amazon I think. Is that that one that looks like it's for a quad?

u/ChillyWaa · 1 pointr/Dualsport

Last update because you guys helped me solve the problem and it was relatively easy. Apparently I have a high-compression DR. I poured 1.5 ounces of this octane booster in the tank and boom! Runs smooth and pulls hard through all the gears now. Why was this so hard? I thought this stuff was snake oil. Especially for my old school stock engine. Guess I'm running 93 from now one. THANK YOU!!

u/mabramo · 1 pointr/Dualsport

I've heard good things about the Spitfire. I'll probably pick it up. Handlebar mounted, which I like.

u/bigfatsanta69 · 1 pointr/Dualsport

Tire iron kit,
Bead buddy (helps when taking the tire off), Lift (this has worked well for my KLR, combine with a couple of jack stands for more stability)

Other things that help: rubber mallet, needle nose pliers, SERVICE MANUAL, torque wrenches.

u/sew_butthurt · 1 pointr/Dualsport

Ah, I gotcha. I like the 3pc Motion Pro tire iron set, though I've never tried spoons:

Also, this thing is a freaking godsend for getting the valve stem through the rim. I even carry it in my tailbag, it's so small and light:

Also, don't forget your rim protectors and valve stem core removal tool.

Motopower 0609A 3.1Amp Waterproof Motorcycle USB Charger Kit SAE to USB Adapter
These are rock solid, have on 3 dualsports. Pressure wash after each outing and they they have been working fine after over a year.
I put them facing up, mounted to the center of the upper clamp with 3M VHB tape. Bonus feature is you can unplug at the SAE connector and attach a battery maintainer if desired.
I use LI-PO batteries and see no parasitic draw even when the bike sits for 2-3 weeks.
I also ordered some 1 ft USB cables to go from the power port to the phone / device so I didn't have 3 feet of cable to deal with.

u/xl200r · 2 pointsr/Dualsport

Nope haven't had any issues with the battery and been running AUX lights for a year now. Granted though it's a kickstart and the spark plug is powered by the bike's generator so I can completely pull out the battery and it'll still run.

u/yolo-dubstep · 1 pointr/Dualsport

I used these vibration dampers between my spring-loaded RAM phone holder and the diamond-shaped ball adapter plate. It worked pretty well for a 7,000 mile trip I took on an Africa Twin last summer (mostly paved, some dirt and off-road), although I did end up having the phone replaced due to recurring dust spots on the camera. I really just try to limit how often I mount the phone there, and use a Garmin nüvi for navigation.

u/KonaClump · 1 pointr/Dualsport

Looks like the Coleman ATV seat cover, which can be found at Walmart, or Amazon for less than 20 bucks.

u/heyguyswatchthis · 1 pointr/Dualsport

Just get a full set; your future self will thank you (can't find the exact one, but it was similar to this one on amazon)

u/BornToTaco · 1 pointr/Dualsport

That was my concern when I picked it up so I ordered this just in case. It made it rock solid.


u/darkvyper · 1 pointr/Dualsport

Who makes the quick disconnects for the rims? That SM stuff is really gonna break the (your) bank. You'd probably get more for your money out of the gearing and suspension.

For the seat I definitely know what you mean. I'm 24 and after a 200+ mi slab day my ass hates me. I'll throw this on for long trips now - My gf also appreciates it when we're 2-up'ing

u/LiquidMojoX · 1 pointr/Dualsport

Try these... I commute daily and always wear them. My helmet is an icon variant, which isn't known for being quiet... and my bike has a loud yoshimura exhaust with no baffle. I find that they work well for me.

u/Dirt_Bike_Zero · 4 pointsr/Dualsport

To mount it, I took some measurements and modeled the parts up in AutoCAD. The blue part is what I made. It's made from a Delrin block and has a Helicoil in the fastener hole. I finished it by glueing a piece or rubber to the fork contact surface with RTV.

Below is the above design in reality. All the parts are black, so it's hard to see the individual parts.

This is the exact light I used.
