    Air pressure I can tell the difference I never run more than 10 and usually prefer it around 8

    I was always told buy the widest the bike could handle. Funny how you think you got a good handle on some things and then realize you don't know shit! Oh well!

    Anybody got a lead on someone who can make patches?

    No, I want to have a patch made up for a Jersey. I have the design but want it imposed onto an embroidered patch. :ear

    Something tells me ac717 is a couch racer. Not that Im calling myself a racer, but he doesn't provide any empirical evidence to his claim. For all we know, he is a rubber farmer. Getting rich off all y'all who buy wider-than-necessary tires.


    Next physics question- when going around a corner in a car (assuming perfect 50/50 front/back and side/side weight distribution, same tire pressures, suspension pressure, tire brand/type, etc), which wheels do the majority of the work- inside or outside?

    Hint- if you ski or ice-skate, you may know based on which foot is easier to lift given proper technique.

    I just changed the oil, rear brake pads, and bled the line - just in case things get crazy on Sunday.

    I'm just really amazed on how great that bike's been, other than the electric start that is. But all in all, that bike really runs awesome and I couldn't be happier with it. So glad I got a new KTM. The RFS 400exc I had was just about as awesome though.

    I hope I didn't post this one here yet. This picture shows my new ATV handlebars well, Raptor bend. I love it. I'm getting another set for my 990.

    Did you get the starter issue fixed?
    Have you tightened the torque converter and made sure the auto decompression is installed correctly? Each were issues with the '08 and caused the electric starter to not work.

    I did fix the torque limiter. It does crank over now, just not very strongly. It starts ok when it's warm but I think a new battery would make it better. I'll look into the decompression and check that, I haven't heard that one. More often than not, it starts on the first or second kick when I have to do that.

    WTF is torque converter? I still got my buddy's 525EXC and even with new battery it does not crank more than once... I hate kicking it!
