Riding in Mexicali Mexico


Recommended Posts

I enjoy riding in Laguna Salada and the Canon Guadalupe in Mexicali. You need to know the area if you are going to go deep into the Salada, otherwise you find yourself half way to San Felipe. There is a nice dune hill on the north..."this is no Glamis" just one hill. There are many tracks that have been run by Score, Code, and ZR racing through the Salada, along the mountains, and through some woops. You can spend an entire day here without hitting the same area twice, another great run is from Rumarosa down into Laguan Hanson. This is more scenic, or fast paced depends on how you want to run it. I guess overall the BAJA is the place to ride, since there is massive amounts of area to ride all the way to Cabo.

Well as an American and living here in Mexicali I feel very comfortable. Mexicali is a complete different city that most of the border towns, since it is in the middle of no where, and the extreme heat there is no tourism, it is just the people that have their familys. I am very comfortable being here, like any city in the world there are some sections I always stay away from, but for many years I lived in Orange County, and It has its DisneyLand, then it has its shares of problems. If someone were wanting to ride in Mexico, I would always suggest come through Tecate, or Mexicali and access the BAJA from here.

Lets plan a trip, Just had my nefew give me a seet of tires he was using to race his rhyno, The rhyno was not strong enough to pull them.They are 29" tall so they match the 1300x15s pretty good, Any way i have 2 complete sets of tires plus the 2 paddles. I am shure we could find the best set-up for the sand. I am going to put them on the basset steel wheels so lug-nuts won't be a problem

Please don't take this the wrong way, as I grew up in Kansas. I loved it as a kid, would visit but would never live there again. Why only moving as far as South Dakota. That is further North than Kansas and Kansas winters are horrible. Never again will I live somewhere that cold in the winter. Yeah, move on down. I can play year round. We except everone. AZ is a meltling pot of people.

Understand the kid thing. Also lived 20 years of our lives for the kids. THEN we talked to older people who had abandoned there desire to live other places to stay by the kids. About half were sorry they had not followed their dreams. We decided the heck with it, they can visit. Now they are a thousand miles away. It is always a balance. Hay, you can come and visit. If you have an RV, I have three 30 amp services and water. No sewer hookup. Don't forget to bring the Trooper. Then we can travel to El Golfo. We are a day away. Or just leave from the house for rock & desert riding.

Detbohica, I was looking at your area on Google Earth, when you go out to play in the dunes, do you go to Glamis or to your south east area, do you ever ride the Gulf of California?

Kinarfi,

Let's see since I have had the T4, I have only ridden on some small dunes in Mexicali, but I have ridden my quad, and a motorcycle all over Glamis a few years ago the north side near Highway 76. I have also ridden El Golfo which is to the southeast of me in Mexico on my quad. I need to buy a rim and a a couple of tires, and will try to get out again soon to Glamis.

It looks like I'm going to Ocotillo Wells near the Anza Borrego Desert on November 8th, so I need to buy them quick, or I will be riding the quad.

Also I would love to take part in a Trooper meeting, you guys have knowledge that I need. I kind of have 2 many thumbs, but with instuctions I can figure it out. I would be have to travel around to AZ, Ca, or Mexico for a weekend or so.

Borrego is a nice little town, we have spent alot of time horse camping there with my father-in-law. We haven't been there for a few years but I remember seeing people camping out in the desert with their quads and buggys going towards the Salton Sea. Have fun on your trip and take lots of pictures, we'ld love to see them.

      I own a LM700 with the Subaru V-twin, while I was checking game cameras today I noticed my Landmaster started struggling and even stopping going up an incline or steep hill. I’ve gone up these same inclines and hills for the last three years with no issues until today, if the ground was level it would run perfectly fine but as soon as I came upon an incline it was like it instantly lost power and all forward motion going up hill. Any advice or ideas would be greatly appreciated!

      Thinking about buying one of these for its multi-use. Anyone know if the foot rest for rear-facing riders in the back causes issues in ruts, mud holes, etc?

      1 1/2 years ago I was riding along in my 2018 Coleman 550 Outfitter when the CVT belt broken.  Just prior to that I was having some shifting issues that I now understand can be part of the clutch. Finally a few months ago I sent it in to a shop who put in a new belt as well as a new wet clutch (drum, one way bearing, etc and an oil change) He fired it up and it turned on fine, sounded fine and I took it home. It was an auto shop but not a UTV specific shop. So get it home and after a half hour or so it started making some noises with my 10 year old driving it around. I get home and he said theres noises again and I played around a bit. Within a short bit of trying to drive it around I started having noises that I now understand was my One Way Bearing being destroyed. Aka metal noises from the bearing falling apart.   Of course, after the cost of $800 to take it to a shop plus $200 in gas, trailer rental etc to take it in and back (it was a friends shop that was a bit of ad istance) I was quite ticked and pushed the UTV back into my garage and left it for a while.  Then this past weekend i watched a bunch of Youtube videos along with a mechanic friend to pull things apart.  We found the spindle was loose, opened it up further and found the one way bearing fell apart in my hand and the little bearings were already worn, no longer round and this was from less than a hour of use. THerefore leading me to believe it had very quick failure after the new wet clutch was put in.  We looked things to look for damage further.  Nothing really scratched/grooves etc so I ordered a new OEM bearing and we put it in, sealed it back up, followed the specs of everything and was 110% sure we put the One Way Bearing in correctly.    We rode it around for a hour, sounded fine.   Next day used it, sounded fine for a half hour.   Third day I turned it on and let it idle a little bit and found that I was hearing metal scraping again like I did right after getting my utv back from the shop.  Therefore I am 99% certain the One Way Bearing is about to break again (already breaking)   Its a brand new OEM belt.  Nothing looks off on the spindle.   I do not know for sure if the shop touched the inner race for which, in my understanding, the One Way Bearing spins. I know I may be sounding ignorant here.  I am not a mechanic by any means but I have learned a bit with the recent Youtube videos and attempted repairs.  Whatever that "ufo" looking object is, we replaced the bearings (those black things that spin) I replaced the whole "Ufo" lol... as the original had some wear/tear that prevented it from spinning perfect. Nothing currently
      visibly looks off... and the issue is mostly when the machine is more in an idle.  It was at an idle when the One Way Bearing sorta went kaput the last time.  THe noises is at an idle... but if I can get it drive, its fine.  It also affects the ability to shift the gears. 

      I know I will have to replace the One Way Bearing again... I just dont know what might cause the issue that is destroying the bearinga nd so quickly.   Again, this all started when the belt snapped when I was going about 15 mph down a road on a warm day.  It has higher miles.  The wet clutch was in bad shape and its replaced.   The paperwork says "wet clutch assembly kit")   Is there something that the belt can do to cause damage that might not be as visible but would directly create an issue that lets the bearing get ate right up?? Help me!  I hate this machine and I really want it to run well ... so I can sell it and find something else  haha..

      I have an 08 Joyner Renegade R4.  This weekend we tried to climb a slightly steep hill but we kept losing power about 2/3 of the way up.   I am not sure if we simply don’t have enough power in the r4 or it was something else causing it.  
       
      i would think it would have enough power to climb as a friend of mine has a Can Am 800 and made it easily, while we kept losing power. Any idea as to what this problem could be?
