You should check the release shaft has all it's teeth. I went through 3 shafts before finding the oval wear problem. I had a machine shop bore the housing and make a aircraft aluminum bushing / sleeve. The clutch release has never felt so smooth. Shame on all the dealers that could not find this problem. As for the slipping clutch, maybe the springs are worn out, and no you don't loose much oil if you lean the bike over a bit, but wait until engine cools a bit.
post 5949 did a great job of the photo, don't bore it too deep or you hit the needle bearing, and about .061 thousand for the wall thickness.

As stated many times before, have Woody's build them. They know all the answers and built my set as well as many others. Hard to beat....and this is coming from someone who prefers to build his own mtb wheels.

New hubs

Allright! :)

Is it necessary to replace the original hubs or are the oem ones good enough?

The OEM hubs are fine. I don't think anybody makes a hub that will fit this bike. Yet another great engineering decision by Jans and Franz.

I really banged my rims riding around Goodsprings last year. Guess its time to start shopping. Just passed 27,500 miles this afternoon.

Does anyone have an old rear shock that they are no longer using? The shock bushings (rod ends) have developed play on my xMoto (Sachs shock) and it's making a clunking noise. Can't seem to source any replacements... but I could easily press them out and replace with some new ones.

I determined the issue was that the spherical bearings at either end of the shock have developed play. The bearing is printed with G14DX CCVI and I couldn't find any online.

Had to make a bushing using Delrin and a spacer. But this doesn't allow for twisting movement.

Nice, an XC with wings!!

Do you have the stock aluminum sub frame ir a TT steel one?

I've been trying to decide what the best way is to pack more crap for camping, etc...

Looks to be the aluminum subframe. You can beef it up and make it durable. The TT subframe is a pile of cash and works well. It does add a pile of weight to the rear of the bike as well. The pannier loops can fit various cases, but don't work well with a "Giantloop" style bag. To make soft bags work better, add a plate to the pannier loops.

It's only a couple pounds heavier than stock. I was surprised how little.
Subframe + XRack are net gain of ~10 lbs over stock.
Stock subframe tail official weight limit was 11kg (yeah right), not sure how far north the TT limit is.

I've been using the Giant Loop Great Basin with a set of DirtBagz racks for some time now. The DirtBagz racks provide some crash protection as well as a point to secure the Great Basin. The Great Basin will not hold spares for much of a wilderness trip and all of your camping gear for anything other than a couple of nights of good weather. Plan on a couple of dry bags to go with it for camping. If left on the bike it can collect a lot of stuff that might otherwise be left at home.
