Re: 4CS fork revalve question

Re: New spark plug fitting on KTM 350 xcfw

Re: Chain Saw recommendations?

Poulins and echo are throw away saws. They work great, but you may struggle to find parts. Get a consumer grade sthil or husky, maybe you pay a few more dollars upfront but atleast there are parts readly available. The key is a properly sharpened chain, it will reduced wear on you and extend the li...

Re: Valve Cover Bolts

I was under the impression the theads were already repaired with heli coils, if they pulled out you cannot repair a second time with heli coils. Good luck

Re: Valve Cover Bolts

I have used time-serts on head bolts with no problems not sure have anything for your application. Last resort is clean the hole really well, fill 2/3 with job weld, drill and re tap. Have not tried this myself. Make sure to use a bottoming tap

Use $350 of the cash for a rekluse and install compression adj on the bottom of your forks and turn up the idle to atleast 1400rpm. No you have one of the best working 4T machines you can buy. Take the $400...

Re: Battery Life/Maintenance
