I'm on my second one of these. Feeling the effects already.
Red Ale... mmmmm
I'm gonna beat all of you FF's to the punch.
Thanksgiving weekend ride coming up but I have one problem...I just installed a FMF powerbomb header and its connecting to a Q4 pipe. Problem is that even though I used high temp silicone on the header before I jammed it in the pipe, I have a leak at the joint. I don't know if it's because I fired the bike up with the silicone still wet or what. Should I clean the surfaces, use an assload of silicone and let it dry overnight? This is a common pipe/header combo and I can't find much info on leakage.
Remove the muffler and clean both the header and muffler joints. Apply sealant and assemble. Let dry overnight.
I just picked up one of these as well, I am going to test it out and report my findings. I was on a solo ride in the woods and got stuck on a small muddy incline, rear tire dug in nicely. Good thing a buddy of mine was on the way and found me but something like this could have helped possibly. It looks much easier to set up than one of these https://www.bestrestproducts.com/p-340-motorcycle-recovery-system-mrs.aspx
Same setup here... no sealant at all and no leaks. Hmmmm
Dont visit Texas with that kinda attitude. WE drink this not some off color bilge beer.
Ya know, maybe your oil pump is not moving the oil out of the engine like it should. Have you made the check of the pump by removing the bolt in the clutch cover while the bike is level on a stand and running? If oil gushes out the pump is not pumping well.
I know this has been discussed at some length , but I am looking at maybe an early x- mas gift I was wondering from those who have made the swap, what they felt was the best route to follow on this.
Which triple clamps are the easiest and provide the best results? Cut up stockers, emig, rsw?
250. or 450 forks, I have the acerbics tank( if weight is involved in the equation ) and I weigh over 200:huh
I appreciate the feed back, just trying to make the swap as simple as possible so I do not fall into paralysis by analysis syndrome. Which I found is profoundly exacerbated through the consumption of said beverages.
rsw is quickest and easiest as everything bolts right up all you need to do is press stem out of old and into the new clamps... careful it only goes one way
RSW clamp with The CRF-X front wheel .
Maybe the clamp is too far towards the end of the muffler pipe? I feel the leak coming from the muffler pipe cutout
My big fat pig of a bike
I had it on mine up to last week. If you click on some of them it has definitions or references to the word. Other ones go to spam sites. I uninstalled some different programs that I knew were junk, like toolbars and then uninstaller google chrome. I reinstalled google and the orange/underlined words were gone.
I used to drink that stuff when I lived in Texas... Of course most times the only choices were Budweiser, Lone Star or Schaefer Light. :eek1
I used to drink that Pump House red ale, then I got a job.
Thank God someone else is seeing this and it's not been the weed!
GLAMIS! I know that feeling well. Welcome to our corner of the asylum!
Don't take your XR650L to Glamis unless you have a paddle and an engine full of CycleWizardry!
Pigs in the sand? Yikes! When I go to Glamis (aint that place fun?) I take (here's more confessions of a closet 2 smoker) an '02 YZ250. Never had the XRL out there, probably never will.
If I get out that way again, I'm taking my KTM380 because I'm also a closet 2 smoker.
