    I think I'll just be taking that route. Thanks for the insight.

    Am I the only one who can run the acerbis dry? :dunno

    Can't deny that 5.8g isn't super nice though. If I didn't already have the 4.2, I would've chosen that route. So I think I'll just be looking into a rotopax system. They aren't as expensive as I thought they were. 2 gal with a mounting system is just over $100.

    Okay so here's what I'm ordering.

    Rings
    Valve seals
    Head gasket
    Seals for the oil line on the side of the head

    Anything else you guys would recommend while I'm in the engine this deep?

    Base gasket.

    I also replaced the wrist pin and circlips. It wasn't necessary, but I didn't want to be down longer waiting for parts.

    For valve seals, I ordered some Viton seals off of ebay that were quite nice (at least I thought so). Cheaper, too.

    Regards,

    they have an ADV coupon code ( advrider ) which gives a decent discount of ~10%. A 1.75g ( I don't like how the 2 gallon looks ) with a locking mount with key is $98.56 shipped. it would be ~10 less if you just got the regular non locking mount.

    Yes, I thought of the base seal just after posting. Well it looks like I can pay $7 for shipping or find something else for $6....

    Thanks for that. And yes I agree, I don't like the "inter-locking" bottom. I wish they had an option for this feature that I will never use once but, the 2 gallon looks like it's the exact size of the box, maybe bigger by .2" or so.

    I also DO NOT want those STUPID eco spouts that break or seize after a week. I have a spout off a container I bought in canada, so if that doesn't fit I guess I'll have to order one.

    Agreed! I've spilt more gasoline into the environment with those eco spouts than I ever did without. My old cans are worth way more today then they ever were new :>

    Are you sure those do not need no load flasher relays. I have the same set and I did. I have heard that mounting a set of LED's on the rear only might not require the need to mess around with the relay.

    I would go with regular incandescent bulbs if you don't want to mess with relays.

    I bought a set that looks like this before (not from these guys)

    However I can not guarantee that they are of the 21/23 watt variety that our flasher relays need.

    Read my ad/write up linked in my sig line for no load flasher relays, for more information about turn signals and relays. Warning might be more information than you EVER want to know.

    I put led flashers all around and only needed to take out the indicator bulb, and got an "auto adjusting" flasher from advance auto parts down the road.


    Edit: for a brief time before a short (my fault) melted the CRAP out of the flasher. Cool stuff. :D

    Isn't there a gearing calculator floating around somewhere? I tried to open Greg's but I don't have ms office. I have 14/48 and the rpms are a tad higher than the speed (you know what I mean so shut up:D). I would like to be at 6500 @ 70. Would 13/42 be too much?

    I will confirm that these will need a new load adjusting flasher, and also they are absolutely horrible. My buddy has them on the rear and in the day, they are just as bad as the generic 14led ones linked before, and I would argue look much worse at night. The light from the bulb barely lights up the tip of those, so not only does it look really stupid, but it isn't bright.

    We each bought 2 pairs hoping I would replace my led ones to get some brighter visibility in the socal sun, but I ended up leaving my led ones and tossing the new ones on the shelf. Not worth the bother.

    I'd rather have a tool tube. Waterproof, bigger, tougher, and doesnt randomly come open. Still cheap.
