How do you guys go about cleaning your chain? Hell how do you guys clean your bikes? Many of them look as if you guys fully disassemble them, clean them, and then put them back together.

Yup, but just like Michhup they don't stick well. I'm on my second set and they are not sticking very well at all.
I like how they look though...

They look the same to me.

Thanks for the links. The second one is only for the 250/300 2-strokes, so it looks 77008998000 is the right number for stock tank (XC-F/XCF-W/XCR-W/EXC-R) and also the Clockwork one.

I have a set on order so I will confirm when I get it next week.

Cheers,
Lukas

For those of you that are having problems with them staying on the tank. Did you do any prep to the tank (wipe down with Alcohol, etc) prior to apllying the tank pad set?

Did you install this yourself? If so how difficult was it to install? What type of stapler did you use, etc? Is it the tall or standard height? I am debating getting the tall version since I am 6 foot with 34" inseam but have always ridden stock height seat.

Yes. Cleaned and prepped with alcohol. They do seem to stick better in warmer weather, so I used a hair dryer when applying. But, when it's cold they begin to peel off, and if any dirt gets on the sticky stuff it's all over.

One more comment on Sea Foam

Here is what I think about Stabil and Sea Foam. Both products will counter bacteria. Hydrocarbon eating bacteria byproduct plug jets-----usually the smaller pilot jet is first affected. Stabil added generously to the gas tank is effective in cleaning jets-- but works most effectively when the jet is not fully plugged and some gas can pass through it. If the bike will run at all Sea Foam added to the gas tank will eventually clean the jets---maybe it will take an hour or more running to be most effective. It's a good idea to add either product (generously) to the gas tank and run the mix awhile to be sure it gets into the Carb bowl before shutting the bike down and putting it into storage for the season. Anybody that has had bikes for awhile has learned how to disassemble and clean a carb-----which is the best method of fixing the problem which KTM 530 has described------At the same time----why would you want to have to do that when all you really need to do is to use Stabil and Seafoam once in awhile and particularly when the gas is going to set in the tank for long periods of time?
A good starting and clean running bike is worth the cost of the products----and also worth the time and effort to manually clean a carb if that is what becomes necessary.

Left hand rear brake is what I'm going to guess. Rekluse auto clutch judging by the cover in the first shot.

I have LHRB on my bike. Its great but a little on the weak side. Id like to get something to increase braking power but do not know where to start?

But It did allow me to build this cover for the clutch case:


After putting two holes in the case, it was time to make something work. So far, no holes!

Just back from Hatfield & McCoy from several days riding. The seat was great, very comfortable, I would have been suffering with the stock seat. I also have a 34" inseam, but find the bike too tall in the tight stuff. The SC seat has helped with this as it compresses more than the stock one. The one pictured is standard hieght.

I used a regular manual T50 gun with 1/4" galvanized heavy duty staples. While it worked, it wasn't ideal and I wouldn't recommend it. I'll take a pic tomorrow after I get some of the mud off this thing!

Installed JD jet kit - took carb OFF to install
Man, nothing beats getting right in there and learning how your bike works...priceless...

Waxed it all for easier cleanup in the future

Man, with the JD kit w/ their accel pump mod it REALLY takes off mid throttle..crispy response and blindingly fast acceleration. Phew.

Ordered up a set of THE BEST radiator guards made:
http://shop.bulletproofdesigns.com/p...6&categoryId=9
Starts out as a *6.25 LB BLOCK of aluminum*

May have prevented this in this poor chaps case:

Can anyone tell me what the part number is for the oil drain bolt? The bolt was stuck and in the process of loosening it I stripped the bolt head. I found this aftermarket magnetic bolt. But can't seem to find the OEM one on the parts fiche.

58030021000 OILDRAIN PLUG W.MAG. M 12X1,5

Page 5 in the parts PDF file for the 2010 530.

I am assuming your talking about the gear box oil drain plug, the one under the counter shaft sprocket?

No, I'm talking about the one underneath for the engine oil.
