Reno, your place!


Recommended Posts

Just some interesting info about Reno where I live!

Everyone has been to Reno at one time right.

Many famous movies were filmed in Reno.

The 'Biggest Little City in the World' is what the sign reads.

Now the largest free spanning bridge in the world is under construction.

It will connect Reno with Carson City, the Nevada state capital.

There will be many smaller bridges along it path and the highway will

scale the side of the mountains with the bridges being heated during the

winter months.

As not to disturb the horse grazing, wildlife and off-road trails. :rolleyes:

Since our Democratic Senator Harry Reid is a avid off-roader he has

made sure our areas have been kept open and unrestricted for off-roading

with staging areas everywhere. New developments were not allowed to

block off access to BLM land at least here in Northern Nevada.

Here is a picture of the construction, taken about a half mile away

is about as close as you can get at this time by car.

Funny, here in Southern AZ we build in the valley and don't want anything to disturb the slopes. Just the opposite. What was wrong with widening the old route? Less costly and the critters were already disturbed.

I am not sure why the planning commission chose to build this route

as I don't get involved with them but I have a good idea.

If your familiar with Washoe Valley from Reno to Carson it is

quite a narrow valley scattered with ranches and fertile grazing

land for horses and cattle alike.

Something we don't have much of around here being desert.

Keeping the freeway traffic and noise up out of the way and

preserving the scenic valley seems like a good idea.

It is costing a fortune though, one contractor that started

the bridge backed out saying the elevation and strong wind is

just to dangerous to build a bridge like this.

Another contractor has taken over the job and with a little

different approach is building the bridge.

That center support you see in the picture is only being

used while the bridge is under construction and later

will be removed.

Wow; thanks for the info on Reno! I live in Bend, Oregon and this state is VERY biased against off roading. In the not too distant future; my wife and i are considering relocating. Redding California was one of the top considerations; and Reno was the other one. We have family in Henderson Nevada; but it's too hot for me there! Reno would be a nice compremise. Not too hot in the summer; and not too cold in the winter. Bend is like living in Alaska during the winter time. (Although this year has been very mild) Is Harry Reid REALLY an off roader?

If your an off-roader you will love Reno! Most Californians call it Nevada's best kept secret.

We have tried to not make it another Vegas City and have succeeded very well even though gambling is allowed.

Its a great place to raise a family, not to big, not to small and the weather is great year round.

Snow capped mountains and sandy desert. I moved from Utah and never looked back.

We have hundreds of places to ride just out my back door.

Give me a yell if you make it out this way.

      I'm trying to get mine running (Landmaster 2013 BD700 4x4 from Home Depot) and looking for detailed pics or videos of the carb connections like springs locations, vent tubes etc, like exactly what holes which springs go to.
      Also looking for any cross refence parts that might work, like if anyone has tried one of the cheap v-twin 266 carbs that looks like our 2bbl or other parts that work and are much cheaper/easier to find than the old Subaru stuff?
      Rebuild kits for the carbs or individual o-rings etc. Searched everywhere little luck.
      I have disassembled my carb, its in good condition but some of the o-rings are borderline, and it needs new ones.
      I have several o-ring kits with dozens of styles and none fit exactly.
      If my "rebuild" dosent work ill try one of the v-twin carbs and post back here.
      Any help greatly appreciated.
      Thanks Mike

      After a few days of heavy rainfall I got in my Sidekick and noticed that the belt seemed to be slipping as I was making my way out on a large property.  I turned around and could barely make it back to my shop.  After removing the cowelling I noticed about a quart of water drained out.  I dried the area, the cover and checked the belt.  No signs of dammage, belt looks great and no foreign debris other than water in the area.  I put it back together and there was a definite improvement.  The Sidekick is driveable now but the belt still slips but only at a higher speed and only when the throttle is punched.  I'm wondering whether I may have inadvertently damaged it while it was wet and have ordered a new belt.  I have looked on line to see if there is a guide or procedure, specifically for the CVT belt removal and replacement for the 850 but can find none.  Does anyone have experience with this?

      I have the factory service manual available for the Buck 400. Just send me a message with your email and I'll get it to you. Although there is no charge for this, it would be great if  you would visit my website where you could donate any amount to help do things like this with others who need it. Again, there is no charge for this manual, and no obligation to donate. But if you did, I would thank you for sure. Have fun on the trails. www.warriorsoffroad.com

      Haven't posted in a while since solving the excessive cabin noise issue, so I thought I would share a few upgrades to my Sector... Realize that this is driven daily on the street, so some of the mods are to make it more streetworthy.

      Locking gas door.

      Rear view mirror.

      Modified windshield for better airflow in cabin.

      Lowered and modified headrest bar for improved rear view.  Tailgate protector.

      Folding armrests.

      Overhead utility rack.  Keeps the interior cooler and dryer, too!

      Folding rear seats.

      Dust cover and seat protector.
      If anyone wants links to the rear view mirror, seats, or arrests, let me know and I will post.  But know that everything requires some level of fabrication.  The utility rack was all custom built.  Cheers!
