Re: I need to borrow a clutch basket tool

I have always gotten by with an impact wrench. I ramp up slowly for the removal, and the last time I used an 80 lb-ft Torque Limiting Extension when installing (specification is 76 lb-ft IIRC). Like anything, use your judgement and follow this advice "at your own risk". It certainly works ...

Re: 2012 Ktm 350 XC-F

In regards to XC vs XC-W, the choice almost always comes down to a riders preference and what they are looking for. For example I'm OK in the slow technical stuff to the point that an XC-W wouldn't be much of an advantage BUT I'm not really comfortable in the faster stuff and the setup of the XC-W ...

Re: 2012 Ktm 350 XC-F

My bergs and huskys have the all xcf-w engine with wide ratio and 42mm throttle body because I like to lug and I like the smooth power. When I have tried others 350 XCFs they are more aggressive and abrupt power... my skills and preference aren't making that fun yet. Might make me faster though... o...

Re: Chain Saw recommendations?

Stihl MS170 can be had on sale for around $200. They are a great saw. I have had mine for 5 years and countless tanks of fuel and never had an issue. +1 There is no substitute for quality. There are bigger saws, but the time you spend building it is a labour of love, so keep the chain sharp and enj...

Re: Travel Trailer Frame Cracks

The Lippert folks added a 2" HSS (Hollow Structural Section) between the spring hangers which prevents the hangers from "wagging" the frame rail flange (and cracking the web). It basically "boxes" the load path and strengthens and stiffens it immensely. A clever solution I t...

Re: Travel Trailer Frame Cracks

Again, not overly concerned, anything that can crack that easily can't really be structurally critical.... I politely suggest a more conservative approach - these were not designed to last the number of cycles we subject them too... most RVs get used one or two weeks a year. The cracks appear where...

Re: Travel Trailer Frame Cracks

Have any of you come across frame cracks on a travel trailer? We have a 2015 28ft springdale trailer and I recently found two horizontal cracks above the rear axle spring hanger mount. The cracks are in the main frame beam. I have heard of a couple frames on Forest River bumper pulls ( I believe th...
