What did you torque the bolts too?

I just snugged them until it started squishing out. It seals fine.

Fork bleeder

Why hasn't anyone come up a fork bleeder option for the LRP? I would think a machine shop could drill holes in the stock fork caps and resell them to fit a motion pro fork bleeder. RAMZ made some but I don't want to put forth the effort to get it done. Someone should put a kit together. Unless someone already has a lead on this.

So what's the big deal, gnath?...a KLX with a B&B sticker on it.

Looking forward to hearing how it performs.

lol .... no big deal but, All I have done was putt it around taking my time to break it in properly.
According to the dyno I am up to about 26 HP now with the 305

I just thought if anyone is interested I could share my thoughts on this as I gain a little more seat time.

I can only comment on my impressions and satisfaction as I did not install this myself and am by no means an expert or mechanic. I just wanted a little more power under my butt !!! ....

Was considering offering a bolt on kit for the L, including fender and gauge mount. Will see how the wife likes it on the bike. The faring has worked great on other bikes it has been mounted on, from a XT225 to a 950se.

Wolfman side racks

Managed to get a set of the Wolfman sideracks before they are extinct!

As expected they fitted perfectly and I managed to keep my nomadic rack as well - just needed 2 longer bolts and a smaller spacer on one side, def a result as I was expecting to have to sell the rack as it wouldnt fit with the side racks.

I bought a set of the expedition dry side bags (which wont be used 'til next year now, and also a set of the small hoop bags for everyday use, these are pictured below.

305 First impressions

I have still been taking it very easy .... about 37 miles on it now with 4 different rides. I still am not too sure/confident about this but, I am being extra paranoid .... and not reving very high ... I think this last run was my highest and rode a little harder. Top speed about 51-55 so far. Each ride has been around 15 mins or so and then has completely cooled down before starting her up again. I also have kept all my miles on residential roads as to keep me from maintaining a steady speed. I am either on the gas or off.

Anyway .... this thing does have some power and will lift the front in 2nd gear at will without using the clutch and only a 1/4 turn of the throttle ... I have also lifted the front shifting into 3rd a little but, like I said ... I have been taking it really easy so far. As time and miles go by I will slowly start running her harder and harder.
I thought it would be hard to not use more than half throttle for a while during break in but that is not the case. The bike just moves along with ease. I keep catching myself trying to shift into 6th when I am already there because I am only going 45 mph. before at 45 6th would dog if you twisted the throttle but now it just picks right up and pulls along. I have some gravel/small rocky roads around my place and I can spin the rear wheel very easy in 3rd....

I don't think the engine is as smooth as it once was and maybe that will change with time and miles... It is not real rough or anything just not as smooth as stock wich may have something to do with the cylinder not being nickel coated ... It does not seem to crackle or backfire out the pipe as much as before either.

So far I am very happy and the extra power feels great ... it is a different feeling than just a sprocket change

I do not think it is running hot but, .... look how dark my megabomb is turning ....

First...the exhaust turned that color on my FMF very quickly too. Second . . .I beat the sh*t out of mine from the get go, and it is ok. Don't worry about babying the bike.

As for the rolling 2nd gear no clutch wheelies I have this bike too no way dude. Video?

Yeehaw!

You have far more self control than I do. Videos would be fun, if you can manage them. Keep it rubber side down!
