A Dremel is your friend here, I'd use the thin cutting disc for it.

Man they were not kidding about them being soft. It was like literally the last screw to break loose. I bathed it in aerokroil and took my time with the right sized screwdriver. I wonder if the hardware store has bolts with the right thread pitch so I can just replace these shitty screws.

Try needle nose vise grips. the small ones.

It's 0700000-2650, I believe 2619 is the stock #. I found one on Ebay, make sure and verify the number visually!

Didn't like the MT21 rear. Never used the front.

After running another Pirreli after the MT21, I will no longer run any more P tires.

Yep, first try the Dremel with the cutting disc to make a slot for a flat screw driver. If that doesnt work, then only other way is to grind the head off and try a left hand drill bit and/or an EZ out.

I've been using them on Adv 950 with good results...first time on XR.

Not waityng for great performance offroad, but aceptable traction for about 5000km duration and confortable for everyday 5 min. ride with kid to school.

Tnks Shibby for your feedback.

Their ok for guys that have to run DOT tires. Otherwise I just run full knobbies. Way better, and some last just as long. Maxxis Desert IT is a far superior tire if you can get away with it. Not great on marbles on gravel roads but what is.

Thanks guys. The machinist we've been using is really jammed-up right now, so we're looking for other manufacturing options. Will keep you posted, and please post-up in my thread about those tripleclamps if you're interested. Easiest way to keep track of everyone.

I've been earing a lot about those maxxis but donīt know were to find them in Europe...usually I buy tires in Portugal or Spain and send them to Angola...any store in Europe?

A pair os MT21 in Luanda is about 500$...insane!!

Just looking for any leads you guys have for me ...........
Just an update on this. When trying to start, gas dribbles from the vent tubes from the carb and it is still extremely difficult to start. I'm pretty sure its not just me as I'm kicking the ever loving crap out of the thing . Using just past TDC approach, fwiw.

Still idles weird- now it will drop to 1000/1100 and will usually die out without me twisting the throttle a little. Sometimes the idle will settle out (about 1600 rpm) after the twist, sometimes not.

setup again:
fmf/white bros can
swiss cheese side panel/airbox
68s/180/3rd clip screw 1.5 turns out

valves just checked. float level 16.5 mm. plug looks tan/brown

I'm wondering if the gas when starting will maybe clue you gurus in to something cause I'm about ready to buy a tm40 and say **** IT!!!

No, not yet...and they aren't available in Luanda...that's why the insane price for tires.

Never used any pair because I have the ideia (maybe wrong) they are ok but donīt last.
