I like the lower middle. I had black vinyl put on my mask to cover some holes, and I thought it looked very good, even plain black, but I would have loved something like the lower middle design.

help please

someone here must have run into this before. when I use my starter motor to start the bike a loud crashing noise is heard from auto de-comp or starter gears. bike runs fine when started I have set the valves in hopes that would help I also took the starter gear inspection cover off all looks well. If I kick start the bike I get the normal decompression clack and starts or if I use manual de-comp with starter and let it spin 2 times then release lever it starts no weird crashing sound. I am competent and can disassemble any parts needed just hoping to minimize the exploratory surgery :)
Thanks in advance guys!!

The sound you hear is very likely your starter sprague clutch slipping on the drum... This thread may provide you with a simple remedy to repair your existing sprague, if the simple fix doesn't work you may have have to buy a new part: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=222515

I like the middle top and bottom, really cool idea.

Lower left. I don't like the dripping lines off the lower continents,and I prefer the colour on the border rather than in the middle area.

If you print extras, I'd seriously consider buying one! They're all good

Your vote counts!

+1 for the top or bottom midddle ones. Especially the top. For us map readers, the topo lines really set it off and get the point across. Not too busy either. Excellent! I want one.

I still have to finalize the template fit, but once I have everything together, I'll share the design. That way anyone who wants it can have it and print or modify it to suit their own tastes.

Sweet pick up! Looks pristine. As an owner of a 99', I think they are the best looking of the Adv models. Enjoy that steed.

'03 on up-they have the high flow heads which I hear are good for roughly 5 horses and have sturdier crank bearings.

Seems pretty high. 1.03 USD to 1 AUD right now. I paid $4500 USD for a 2000 model with steering stabilizer, new tires, recent service, and only 3500 miles on it. That was about a month ago and I paid a premium for how clean this bike is. There is another one for sale right now for $2300 that has more miles, but is still a great runner. For how much that guy wants I could buy a brand new 2013 Husky 650 Terra.

Two sets of wheels or change tyres

I've had a search on the thread index and can't find anything that addresses the pro's and cons of my situation. I use my 625 SXC about 90% road use and 10% off-road. I have a cush drive hub and road tyres at the moment.

I would like to be able to easily decide to go on a weekend ride every few weeks, so my initial thought was buy a second set of wheels (without cush drive), put dirt tyres on them and just swap them over when I want to go off-road. Then I thought, what if I just get better at changing tyres and do the swap every few weeks and stick with the same set of wheels.

My question is; will having a difference set of rotors and different sprocket pose any issues with wear rates on the pads or braking performance or wear and tear on any other part of the drive-train?

NB. both sets to be 18" and 21" so calibration won't be an issue on the speedo
