Anyone have the parts list for when the stock hand guards are removed. it is different bolts and bushings. I can't find it to save my life.

I remember seeing it somewhere....

Sorry guys I didnt make my last post to clear. What threadlocker or sealant should I use on these guys? http://i.imgur.com/s0vyo5m.jpg

I know the one all the way to the right had red threadlocker on it. The others I am not too sure of. The sealant and/or threadlocker was sort of dark grey colored. I want to use the right stuff so hopefully I never have to pull off this damn crankcase cover for a few years.

Got beat up today. Rode ~18 miles to the trails, met up with a couple woods racer buddies. We rode 30 grueling miles of very technical singletrack, then rode the ~18 miles home. I have over 400 miles on the bike since I bought it a month ago. I saw a big group of dual sport riders in the parking lot, they thought I was nuts riding with the ktm 300 and crf in the tight singletrack




The covers were almost perfect when I got them, giving them mutch needed wear. My boots do not have a metal tip either

Figure $150 for the kit, roughly another $90 for the labor rebuilding the crank plus shipping, about $300 total plus brgs, seals and gaskets, I'd est about $450 total for going into it and fixing the crank if you split the cases yourself.

Got a new (used in great shape) case and have all the bearings pulled out, steam cleaned and sparkling, just sent out the crank for a press and balance with new rod, re nikasil the cylinder, hard face weld the rockers, and a valve job replacing everything. Also throwing in a hot cams stage 1 and cutting out the rear side panel so she'll breathe better



One question Ive got after cleaning and inspecting the oil pump today is should I be worried about the pump if both sides are at their service limits? I plan on replacing the parts after the build up but am I going to see any significant loss in pressure for cam break in, some short runs, etc, the service limit is .008 and its a real snug fit?

I'd replace the pump, that spec your measuring directly relates to supply oil volume and subsequently the motor's oil pressure, any wear like you see on the sides of the op rotor will diminish it's output. It should look polished on the surface. You're spending allot of $$, if it was me I wouldn't put a marginal pump back in a fresh motor.

Yeah, as somebody that had to buy all the oil pump bits, its like 50 dollars to replace every bit on the parts fiche.

Thanks Chris, i was afraid the crank issue would probably set me back another $300+ oh well i guess. now i gotta find something to sell to scrape up some cash!!

They did? Screw that noise! The BRP is awesome on the singletrack if you're in shape and got some muscle. It tractors up over anything and never stalls in the lowest RPMs. And shifting? Optional.

It is not ideal, but I'm also not a huge guy. The thing is amazing at tractoring! They were just jealous that their wideass bmw1200's couldn't fit down the entrance to the trails hahaha.

I'm not huge either, they say the easiest way to make your bike lighter is to lose weight so maybe that's why it doesn't feel that heavy to me hehe.

yeah, not going to happen... I'm 165lbs.... :) my key is to not load the bike down with crap you don't really need.
