It's one of those things that just happens all of a sudden, that's why Hinson made the billet basket and hard anodized it for wear resistance.

Yup, me too...never heard of cooling problems with the XRR.

On cooling..no thermostat or one stuck open will make it run too cool as was noted, but it will also carbon up the top end pretty quick too, it's no big deal if you run the piss out of it all the time, but if you putt putt around town without a stat you'll have carbon problems.

Where's should I buy the updated bushing?? Also, the damn clutch cover o ring... I just cut it and lined em up as close together as I could. Is the only concern with a crappy o-ring loss of oil??

Probably better to buy in BTOsports than wait until I find a bushing in the shed and came out of Russia

Eek width of stock DID 1.6 x 21 front rim

hi all

i am trying to build a new wheel, replacing a bent and beat up stock rim and spokes with some nice new Excel rim and spokes. can anyone confirm for me what the width of a new DID rim is so I can offset the new rim to the proper specs?

I have worked my way to page 344 of the thread and dont remember it posted.

thanks

Where are you located?

If the o-ring is cut at the top half of the cover, you can probably get by with re-using it and maybe adding some sealant until you get the replacement piece. Since not much oil should be puddling there, it's just flung around inside that cover. Sure, you may lose some oil, but it will get you by.

Northeast Oklahoma... yeah I cut it at the top so I don't think oil will be leaking out.
