Re: 4CS fork revalve question

I did a set of 14's with Kreft and they work good, however on a 570 dualsport and that was the recipe I asked for.

Re: Cell Coverage - MacLean Creek

Rogers here. Intermittent at north staging, nada elsewhere. Top of world, barwell, cloud nine, swanees peaks all good.

Think the all main providers sublet towers to one another now.

Re: Helmet design - fyi

I went with 2018 Leatt GPX v5.5 composite, local rep had a new one he dropped off for a fitment test, all the old 2017 "L" inventory was showing out of stock. This has LEATT's version of MIPS. I liked it, and was told 2018 stock will be a while arriving yet, so I bought it. Weight advertis...

Re: Helmet design - fyi

I am in the market for a new brain bucket, after a few years of running Suomy Mr Jumps, and a recent biff that left me with a Grade 1 concussion, no PCS after 72 hours, but 2 weeks no riding. I don't blame the helmet; it and the Atlas brace did their job, as it was not a fast get off, but an unexpec...

Re: What Bibs to buy??

Buddies have tried other brands with mixed results. I stick with the michelins because I now know what tires they fit, how to tune the feel, and the overall durability, given the install effort and expense i stick with what I know. Everybody says they're expensive, but it's really not that much more...

Re: What Bibs to buy??

I run the Michelin enduro style bibs. I prefer a firm front feel, so I use a star cross 5 80/100-21 front with the 90/90 bib. Rear I am running the 100-110 bib In a starcross 5 110/100-18 due to dual sporting a bit. Lots of soap/lube. If you only plod around locally in the lumpy stuff then you might...

Re: Sound Testing

2015 YZ250FX stock exhaust FAILED Idaho City 100 testing in 2016, USFS 96dba limit I believe.
This is the "euro" mx can on the FX models, so is supposedly quieter than North America MX version (YZF).

Re: Forking Seals!

x2 on the seal saver tool - I have the MotionPro and the Risk racing one, the Risk racing one is a bit easier to use, but be gentle. I have had good luck with seals lasting longer by installing the SKF mud scrapers, a lot easier to remove and clean than the neoprene ones, also remember to pull the d...

Re: OHV equipment act / What does my bike need ??

I just mounted my license plate on that fender extension and on the first ride the license plate broke apart and now I have 1/4 of a plate on the rear of my motorcycle. Now I have to pay for another plate. :mad: Perhaps they will only fine you 3/4 of the full penalty then? :redneck: As mentioned th...

Transmission repair shop recommendations

Seems to be a few folks here running high mileage pickups... Thought I'd pick your brains. I have a acquired a 06 Ford van that needs a transmission rebuilt. Has anyone used a local re-builder and recommends them? I will pull the trans out, but only want to do this job ONCE. :D I'd spring for an exc...

Re: OHV equipment act / What does my bike need ??

I appreciate folks trying to get by with bicycle lights and such, however this might be an area to spend the $ on good gear that serves more purpose, and avoids a fine /arguments with CO's. My YZFX's didnt come with "enduro" lighting... So to be legal-ish... I like to have a decent headlig...

Re: Rekluse Clutch Set Up

Set it up as per manufacturer recommendations, then tune. On my bike the rekluse was perfect out of the box. But maybe I lucked out. A buddy's non adjustable one was also perfect.
