got my replacement left crankcase cover and gasket yesterday in the mail. any tips to getting it off and on smoothly? anything to watch out for?
thanks

When you take off the cover lookout for one dowel that falls out when you remove the cover. I forgot to put it back when I noticed it. Its located near the rear of the cover close to the sprocket.

Looks pretty sweet, and it would really open up some possibilities for opening up space in the battery box and I think it would make Spuds shorai battery relocation even easier...

I bought this one and put it in the airbox. It's for the crf450, but has more CCA than the one recommended for the 650, lighter and smaller too. I've used it for a while with no complaints.

My buddy swears by the Odyssey batteries. He says they have amazing cycle life. I'm going to try it next time I get a battery since I run a lot of electrics.

I have one of the Sycle (SP???) that I used with a big bore motor that was not quite enough. The owner of the company sent a brand new replacement that I have not used. I think I paid $160.00 or more. I'll gladly send it to someone to try and if you like it send me $80.00 or so.... Not needing to sell it, but thought someone may want to give it a try????

My dash is a bit full of gadgets. Here is a slightly dated picture:

Anyone have a link on how to make a dash similar as this one?

So it looks like the tusk grip heaters draw around 36 watts
Correct me if i am wrong on this.
I have an hid light that is only 35 watts and 2 6 watts total smaller lights, so high beam is only 41 watts.
So i should be good in the wattage game.

i had a virago 535 a couple of years ago that i had to replace the left crankcase cover on due to an oil leak. got it all back together and found a little rubber dampner under the back wheel that had fallen out. got to put that one on twice.

Nice.

So are those removable side air deflectors added on the sides?

It looks like you used a few trash can pieces to build it. Very interesting....

[QUOTE=Sourjon;20019839]I didn't think you California guys would need heated gear



Not that it's that cold where I live, but in Truckee, Ca it was supposed to be 3 last night. Any temps below 50 and I like my heated grips on, at least with the MX type gloves I prefer. I will wear cold weather gloves, but your dexterity goes to shit in those. If you ride in the Sierras or the coastal ranges, it's always cold in the morning, even in summer.
