THE MOJAVE SWAP
Dear Mr. Know-It-All,
Here’s a question that I’m certain won’t tax your substantial intellect. I have an older Montgomery Ward’s Mojave, and I’d like to switch from a right-side shift to a left-side shift. Also, does FMF make a pipe that will give it more hit? I’m having trouble with some of the doubles at my track.
Thanks, most esteemed guru of all moto.
Dear Mr. Clavelli, you no doubt have a deep history with the sport of motocross and the machines that helped shaped its integrity. For the life of me, I can’t ascertain why you would want to switch the shifting planes on the machine. The Mojave’s right-side gear shifter has the preferred long-throw, made famous by the CZ brand. Also, the machine makes power that is pure music. It is slow-revving with a soft-top pull so that the rear tire won’t break loose during acceleration. I checked with FMF on the pipe, and, due to demand, they are on backorder. You really should have known.
