Try both before you decide

Try both, I thought I was going to buy the XC, but was suprised that the non-XC model felt better for my intended purpose.

My father-in-law had a similar offer for me except his deal included rats in the shed that would probably chew through the wiring and mice that might build a nest in the airbox or muffler.

Anyone looking for a lightly used Tiger 800?

Ads in the Flee Market and Craigslist. I'm moving with my job and don't want to store the bike for 2 years or more.

+1 for JB Weld

For applications like this, I've had good luck with both JB Weld and a sealant called "Seal-All" which is kind of like an oil safe RTV.

Falcon86 - come try my WeeStrom

Falcon,
Come over Sunday or Monday and try out my bike. I'm convinced that not all Vstroms have twitchy throttles.

And I really do think a Vstrom would be a really good 2nd bike for you, if you...

alternative air filter oils

bar and chain oil (for chain saws) is thin enough and inherently tacky. mix in a little ATF or Marvel Mystery Oil for color to help see where you've sprayed it.

I've bought stuff from them too

I got some parts for my xt225 from them. Seemed kind of weird at first to get motorcycle parts from a marine dealer, but they have been reliable and inexpensive in my experience.

Don't discount the 350cc thumpers!

If you don't mind a slightly older bike, consider the Yamaha xt350 and the Suzuki dr350. Both are good solid bikes with a more oomph than the xt225 or the klr250. I've got a DR350 as my first dirt...

Question hotter plugs

I had an issue with fouled plugs on my bike. Go to the NGK website and decode your OEM spark plug code. One of the numbers is heat range, just order one hotter in the heat range.

Take care...
