Talk to the guys at lindsy. Something tells me they have done many RFS rebuilds.
The guy rebuilds and converts truck engines to hppy diesel. He'll figure it out.

I did my RFS over a year ago. Memory is shot. Simple motor though. Just buy a good cam chain rivet tool.

So, there's no little switch like the one that Pluric posted, and the right amount of fluid is in the reservoir. ideas?

have you checked the Stromtrooper.com forum? I'll bet someone over there has already been through this same problem. Greywolf is a great resource over there he knows those bikes backwards and fowards. Good luck.

Pedaling, sweat, bitchy girls who think they own the trail....all that. Don't worry, in the end you'll all still be rewarded with that sore ass feeling that I know you all love. Just like an elephant just reached up your ass and stole your lunch.

I ride every day........Monday-Thursday off. If you want to ride, let me know.

When it's hot, my rides start before sunrise and end before it's too high in the sky.

I'll bring the mtn bike as well. Do you still have your itty bitty 2 stroke?

Right now I am in Austin waiting for the bike shop to open.

And Harcus, your words hurt because they are true. One thing about the South is everyone seems to get fat and out of shape in the summer because it is so long and hot.

Still have the CR. I think it would be fun to go down to the swell and run laps on coal wash till we puke.
