    Ahhh, so what you mean is what I would call "steering lock". What motor cops call "steering sweep". "Turning radius" I would have understood right away, too. And I'm the one being pedantic here; you two are off the hook.:photogNo harm felt on my part either; I just couldn't understand what you meant.

    Whatever you name it, it's not usually an issue for any bike intended for off road duty. So thanks for pointing out something about the PR7 I haven't read about before. Lack of steering lock has historically been an issue on roadrace bikes and street legal versions of those bikes. Historically (and ironically, since your MTS doesn't suffer from a limited lock to lock) Ducatis were among the most notorious. I put many miles on a Kawasaki Concours, which had a very limited steering lock. Can't count the number of times I dropped that bike maneuvering it into my parking spot after I got used to riding another bike (just about any bike). I'd swing confidently into a slow, tight 90 degree turn into the 12 by 12 fenced area and hit the steering stop just as I needed another few degrees of handlebar turn. I didn't have room to accelerate to regain balance so down I'd go. Again and again I made the same mistake. Thanks to that fence nobody could see me though. :muutt:doh

    Yes, thanks for being gentle on my English ability. Steering lock, got it.

    A little water crossing today with big, slippery rocks underneath. Got her through but it took a while.

    Searched the thread on insurance for US.
    I have progressive, they would not provide any physical damage coverage for this bike. I read people have success with Safeco and American Family here, but they don't have coverage in my State (Michigan).

    Anyone else would please share their experiences getting this bike insured in US?

    I have American General and they provide full coverage, and are very inexpensive. I thought that would add up to not good service, but when I crashed my 1200GS last year (Going way too fast if the forest for a narrow dirt road…should’ve taken the PR7) and did $10k of damage, they paid up with no hassles.

    Thanks for the reply. Do you have the website for the company? I can't seem locate a motorcycle insurance company by that name. Only 'National General', 'The General'.

    Yes, you can adjust the throttle cable stop by engine.

    I ran one on my CRF250L all over Thailand for years and on my XR650R, I personally think they are great, but I use synth oil and would routinely just clean the filter to keep the oil as clean as possible and extend the oil change life as synth never breaks down(it just gets dirty). Thanks for this, will definitely buy!

    Thanks for the reply. I've always used SS filters for bikes, as they are finer than paper. Was more interested to hear if the TE630 is a perfect fit. I assume so and ordered one anyways as the paper version is the same part #.

    To those are looking for luggage racks (top and/or side racks) from the company PAMIR. RUN AWAY! Even tough many people were happy with their system I want to share my experience.
    I have experienced a problem with the ordering of racks and I think you may be interested to know this.
    I wanted to install side racks and a rear rack. I contacted Pamir in Portugal, Price: 280 € + 42 € Shipping
    Ordered on March 15 and confirmed by the seller with a delay of 15 days. We are July 27th, and still no delivery. Of course in between, many unanswered emails (~50...), dozens of unanswered phone calls. Someone I know in Portugal contacted them and told me that apparently the merchandise has been shipped and was blocked at customs, the vendor is sorry about the situation...
    so I believe the dealer is bul***ing me, I won't go into too much detail but one thing is certain: I advice to avoid the products from this company, they aren't reliable. Maybe it concerns only international customers, but whaterver it is shocking.

    Company: PAMIR, contact person is Hugo Guimarães, website pamir.pt
    I hope this thread reach you succesfuly.

    Has anyone fitted their PR7 with a Rekluse clutch? Is it even possible?

    I’ve never heard of it. I’m guessing it’s not possible. If you go to the Rekluse website AJP isn’t even a possible selection. That’s pretty much par for course with most aftermarket stuff, as they are just too small. They also don’t have the Husky 630, which is what the engine is.
