Mine doesn't have fork boots, but most others with them said that they either have to push them up and they look scrunched, or they cut them shorter. I just have some cheap fork skins on mine to protect the seals.

Try 55/155
Hmm, I guess I haven't figured out if it's at idle or main.

I just remembered that the mixture seemed to be better when I wasn't running the exhaust insert, so I pulled it back out, and I re-adjusted the mixture screw back to 2-1/2 turns out. I'll try that again and work from there. There was a lot of black build-up in and around the insert when I pulled it.

I rode a friends KTM 450 with a Rekluse in it, It's nice but like I told him I prefer the hands on clutch on a motorcycle but I wouldn't mind having one for when I hit the snow! now if there was a way to flip a lever and have it one way or the other I would get one.

Yikes, Jeremy! In the last year I had one and one of my riding friends had one. It's going to happen when riding in these rock gardens around here. Fortunately neither of us lost it. It just felt funny, sorta like just the front wheel is riding in sand.

I still cringe just a little every time I look at the bike because I really liked the look of the extended boots, I keep telling myself "function before form"!

Man, you guys whine alot about how your bikes look... have you seen mine???

It isn't pretty, but most of that isn't my fault. It's 20 years old, has 26k miles, and the previous owner painted all of the white plastics black and removed the fork boots. Plus the yellowing old clark tank.

in fact, the only two dirt flats I've had (in not much riding time or miles) with the same guy, the only two times we've ridden together, in two different countries.

Not sure the Revloc works like a Rekluse, but with the Rekluse the clutch works the same. You have manual control.

Electrosport? I have heard a lot of bad things about them. I'm too lazy to look up the part number right now but you can get an OEM Honda stator. That's a great R/R.

Why are changing stator and RR? I have a oem stotor and RR if you need them? I bought them when I was having electrical issues. After replaces the stator and RR it turned out to be a bad frame ground was causing my issues. I love replacing perfectly good parts.

Yep on the R/R,

I don't think that is the right stator that you posted though...
that one might fit but It might only be rated for 200w instead of the one I got which is rated 300-320w,

I bought a new/rewound stator from
Ricks Motorsport electrics Inc, for $140.00 OTD, part# 21-119.(it fits a few different bikes-some are 1984-87 Honda VF700C Magna).

http://ricksmotorsportelectrics.com/...RIb25WRjcwMEM=

should be Honda part no. 31120-MK3-004, or 31120-MB1-024,(one part number supersedes the other)

Wait a sec? Did you not get that PM I sent you? or are you just double checking with the rest of the crew?

well, mostly,..."you can can still “feed”, “fan”, “slip” or “pop” the clutch and do motocross style starts" but it's still not a "direct link" if you will,(barring clutch slip) , you can't bump start the bike without making a adjustment to the clutch which some models requires tools and then make another adjustment to continue riding once the engine fires(which is something to think about on a electric start bike and your battery goes dead) and if you stall on a hill the bike free rolls,(hence one of the reasons why the bar mount rear brake is popular and yes A bike can and does stall even with the Rekluse), more then likely I would be completely happy with a Rekluse and knowing me I would keep the clutch lever active and add a rear brake lever kit(If Rekluse ever makes one for our bikes), when I typed the previous post I had forgotten that the Rekluse had that ability, the guy with the Rekluse in his KTM 450 didn't have any clutch lever set up, he had it set for the rear brake,
another positive aspect to the Rekluse is it will make your counter shaft last longer by reducing shock loads.

Stop rubbing it in
You know how thrilled I'd be to join you on a ride in Mexico.

It's pretty enough, I'm sure. If you ride fast, it doesn't make much difference, as those guys won't get much chance to look at your bike!
At any rate, I'm sure it's as pretty as Bryce's, and look at what his is doing for him.
