    Does anyone know if I can run soap and water through the oil separator? I want to make sure there's no sand in there before reinstalling this motor.

    I would run solvent through the separator before water. If you only have water to use I would get it as hot as possible so it will disolve the oil. Boiling perhaps.

    Lacquer thinner will work. Be sure that you blast all of the thinner out before reinstalling the separator.

    Should I be looking for a picture of your 2nd gear on a milk carton soon?

    How many do you want? I have plenty of 'em unless you want the NX650 gear. Need a shift fork? You probably won't know until you open it up.

    So I was out ridding the cow trails today (this is western Kansas), and wasn't paying close attention to where I was going :D Ended up picking up some barbed wire and warped it around my speedo drive and cracked it to pieces :( anybody want to get rid of one before I head to ebay? I'd rather some one here get my money.

    thanks

    I mounted up my RSW Racing triple clamp for CRF forks today... I got his steering damper mount also and I have an older Scotts damper that looks to be in good shape. I don't have the correct link arm for it yet BUT it appears that the damper is reaching its limit before the lower triple steering stop hits the frame steering stop. This seems bad to me because the damper and mounting is going to take the full force of a crash rather than the steering stops. There's a tiny loss of turning radius but I don't care much about that.

    Anyone else have this same setup?

    Should I:
    - do nothing and ride it
    - extend the steering stops
    - get a new damper
    - ???

    Nope. Some guys in my shop just thought that since my last name is a color that starts with B they would make that my nickname.

    Hey flyingwombat, your avatar pic looks familiar...

    Which part do you need? #14, box assembly? I should have one. Do you need cable too?
