yeah so far i love the ammo cans, and after i get them setup (one for tools, tubes, pump, etc...., one for odds & ends like a rain suit, and MISC travel stuff) I might just stack a couple more or turn the grab handle into a rack later this year or mount a mini military style trunk onto it, we'll see when the need arises
we offer a front rack with the 50 cal can but its too too much out there but down low i think you might have it

Side stand strength when parked is nearly meaningless. You need to size it for leaning the bike over on the stand to oil chains or change a rear tire. Do it on uneven ground. Then assign a safety factor of 2.

I think a 1/2" bolt would be fine, considering that most of the load is going to be compressive, rather than bending.

I think the aftermarket kickstand will be developed by the end of the week.

I'm sure you'll give me a deal I can't refuse on a prototype

1/2" threaded rod is fine, its strength is pretty much equivalent to the thinwall tube that the rest of the kickstand is made of, just don't ask me to show you the math

Whats the maximum weight it will ever potentially see? Maybe 350 lbs under the right condition, and as you said, it'll be mostly a compressive load

Thanks guys!!

Man these posts add up fast...one or two days and I'm a few pages behind already.

Anyway, thanks for the replies to the questions I posted a few pages back. I appreciate the help.

Today I ended up in with some minor engine trouble (http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...61514&page=247), leading me to believe that I'm going to need a new engine...

The question at hand:
Does anyone of you have a spare (parts) 350 engine that you'd part with for a reasonable price? I'm in the Boston area, so somewhere I'm hoping for someone in New England...

As stated above, a terrible long shot, but it would greatly improve the odds of me riding this year

Sorry about your bike! Congrats on having the worst torn-down engine photos I've ever seen. I have a friend who has tried several times to sell his '85 XL350 for $1k but never got any takers. It's a good runner and looks decent and spent most of it's life in the corner of the garage. You'd have to buy the whole thing and it's in Oregon so... PM me if you have any questions. What about slipping a complete newer xr250 or xr400 motor in the 350 frame???

what chain?

I'm most likely doing this incorrectly, but would like to see what type of chain and sprockets the inmates are using on the BRP... do you recommend changing the sprockets every time you replace the chain?

I use 14 in the front for dirt riding and a 15 for highway stock rear sprocket

Looking for the brand of chain and sprockets you're using. have heard that steel sprockets last a lot longer than aluminum ( go figure )

Just go to Rocky Mountain ATV and order one of their Primary Drive brand X-ring chain and sprocket kits. Best bang for your buck IMHO. A lot of guys are using these with excellent results.
