If you are slipping it intentionally, in mud, I personally, dont see the point. I generally choose a lower gear and pin it

If it is slipping with your hand off the clutch lever, that is a different issue, and quite likely not your fault.

If this happens, you definitely need to stop slipping the clutch and clean out the wheel well or whatever until you can move again.

Common sense does apply.

I'm in on that one, and I play in lots of mud. Clutch is still doing the job.

Just heading to the gargae to remove the AIS and flapper. I bought the kit from Krabill and am going by the instructions on the WRDualsport site. AIS is straight forward enough. For the flapper the only question I have is step #8 which says to "remove all the components".

Could someone please clarify what "all the components" refers to. Wanna make sure I do this right.

The hoses that the solenoid was connected to, pretty much.

Yeah, thanks.
Once I started messing with it it became pretty obvious.

Props on the Kit krabill. I know it is a simple thing but it was nice to have everything in one neat little package.

One guy is driving out with all the bikes and the rest are flying out to meet him. I'm guessing this was either shot just as a teaser/trailer for the ride or was him hauling everything over to load up everything onto the big trailer heading out.

One note on bike hauling...you never leave the kickstand down. Some people do it as a "safety" in case a strap comes lose, but they soon learn the kickstand does nothing but slam into the bed of the truck over and over as you hit bumps and the suspension compresses. Lot's of wear and tear on the bike and the truck.
Kickstand up when hauling!

Maybe if you stopped upshifting so much you could have saved some money

IMS Tank Update

I see the IMS website has the 3.0 gal tank available for 'pre-order.' Seems like JustGasTanks.com is asleep at the wheel since they don't even list the tank yet.

I wonder how long the wait will be...anyone...anyone...Shewolf....Shewolf?

New Guy Questions

I'm up to page 955 or so, but have a few questions that I haven't seen answers to (yet).

Are any of you using a Explorer Lite Wolfman bag, and if so what issues have you had with the larger size compared to the smaller Enduro model that seems pretty popular.

I was trying to avoid getting a rear rack, but wanted to try Wolfmans Peak rear bag. Any issues with strapping it to the seat that I might want to hear about?

Has anyone found a good fork oil level? My bike acts as if the level is too high, and I was going to start experimenting but I'm not above using the fruits of someone elses hard work...

Thanks in advance for the help.

Don't know if I can help you with the rest of your questions, but I do know a handful of people who use the Peak tailbag. Not a single one of them straps it to the seat. I've seen them on the OEM tail rack, the promoto billet rack, and a home made rack, but none strapped to the seat.

I'm a fan of tailbags.

I've got the Wolfman Wolf Tail Bag, it's too damn big for me, for most stuff.

I took it off and put the Suzuki DR bag back on, the one recommended by High Five--love it. I repaired the broken clips with zip ties, FYI. That's a nice, low bag...

...so I think you'd like the Peak. +1 here, I don't anyone that straps stuff to the seat. Live with the bike for a while and I think you'll learn you don't want to do that.

There are more than a few racks to choose from out there...I can tell you that there are times when mine is the best hold I can get for picking the bike back up.

I run the Wolfman Enduro bag up front, I'd always like more space, but I think it fits the bike best. I run the Explorer on my DL--all I can say is that they make great kit.
