    The new parts are just as likely to fail as the old ones. I haven't heard of anyone needing to redo the "fix". I did mine when it was 4(?) years old. No problem to date and the engine has been torn down twice and I've never changed back to "new" parts.

    The SM rotor is the same size as the RM and most "street" bikes.

    Hi, I have a spare FCR 39 that I would like to swap for a 21 and 18 inch Tubliss system (Gen2), plus spare inner tubes to suit.
    If interested give me a PM,
    Cheers

    Put on a WolfMan enduro pocket tank bag, holds me keys, phone, wallet and camera, so i dont have to have all that stuff in me pockets anymore, definately worth the $, sets up in a few minutes, and once its on, does not budge at all, nice piece for sure imo.

    Forgive me for asking again, but what mirrors are those? I need to order mirrors ASAP and forgot how awesome those are.

    Those are the Power Madd mirrors, cost about $15-$20 bucks new for a set, depends on where you get them from, ebay, amazon, etc.

    They work great, and show lots more then the stockers, they also show your blind side too, and the mirrors themselves rotate, so you can get the angle that works for you, im really happy with them.

    And it looks like you just used the same bolt that was there securing the plastic handguard to the barkbuster?

    Same spot, different bolt, i needed one that was a bit longer, so that i could slide the mirror on it, and then washer and locknut to keep it in place.

    The mirrors swivel too btw, if you need them too, but even in a drop, they do not get damaged, as me how i know :D

    Ron, looking good. How's the bike been now that you've had it awhile? Looking to move up myself but may still keep the 250.

    Love this bike, plenty of power/torque/speed, put a few thousand miles on it and its been great, every single time i ride it, puts a big smile on me face :D

    I honestly do not see myself getting rid of this bike for a very VERY long time, totally satisfied with it.

    It was exactly what i wanted, something that could climb anything out on the trails (and it does), and can hit 95mph on the way back home on those long straights (and it does that too) :thumb:thumb

    And surprisingly, it gets pretty good milage IMHO at 55+ mpg.

    That's the first tank bag I've seen that I really like. On a side note, PUT A SHIRT ON!!...:rofl

    Agreed, I really like that bag. I tried a larger Wolfman and it was a huge.

    Wondering how the Enduro would work with a Clarke tank...

    Heres a vid of it mounted on a aftermarket gas tank, both of those tank bags in the vid, and my tank bag use the same mounting harness, so once its on, you can switch between bags.

    I got the enduro pocket, cause i do not like the looks of the bigger ones.

    Hey Ron,
    Does it seem like that bag has enough adjustment to fit an oversized tank? Clark 3.9 to be specific?

    No doubt, you can pretty much make it fit on any tank, lots of movement and lots of strap is included.

    Best price i found was Revzilla, its $44.99 there, and they have free shipping and no tax on orders over $39.99.

    Rim Changes??

    I'm looking for a set of stock wheels. Found a set but am curious about changes. Have there been any changes to the wheel setup since 2002? I have a 2012 S. Judging from the sprocket size (47) of the ones I found I'm assuming the wheels are off of an E. Will this give me any problems (speedo, fit)?

    Thanks
