Since this light doesn't have a high beam I used the high beam switch to run the KTm radiator fan that I installed.

Christmas is coming and my list is getting bigger, so another question.

Did the KTM radiator fan help, and how hard was it to put on?

The KTM fan moves quite a bit of air, will be great on long slow grinds ect. Installation was really easy, you have to mod the ears on the right radiator a small bit but it doesn't take long. I'll dig up some pics. Once installed it looks factory. I think its well worth the money, were planning on some long desert rides next summer and there is a good chance it will come in handy.

The MPS look nice and if I can't come up with a solution might go with 2 switches. It is a real pity that there is not a super strong waterproof switch out there with 2 toggle switches and a button all housed in one.

Question: is this a bushing symptom or did I just overheat the clutch with old oil?

The inverted forks are a nice touch!

Let me guess...Is that Brad21 pictured 2 above roasting his clutch?

Man, where do you guys find these? I looked high and low.

Nicer than the others but it would be nice to have 2 waterproof 3 way rocker switches (high/low/off and turn signals) as well as a nice micro switch push button for horn.

Keep looking and save me from having to make one!!!

Thanks, and YUP. He's picking it up after tumbling down into that big hairy root-ball.

Give them a call. Looks to me like they might be the type of company that would be able/willing to make something custom for you.

I'd love to see a couple pics of how you have the Scott's mounted. I'm in the process of installing a CRF250R Frontend and was wondering what others have done.

Just ordered a CRF low-mount kit and had them substitute a 650R headtube mount. Other than that, it was a pretty straightforward deal. The link-arm is a little-bit off-center when the front wheel is pointed straight though, so the range of damping and nuetral is a little different in each direction, but I can't tell the difference at the handlebars.
