Never saw my sweet FJR again... got pics from my firefighter cousin.....
Back to bikes, I’m thinking a new 300 in blue will make me feel better or just break more bones :)
Magic Eraser is a NO GO.
It works great, but is abrasive and will take off the sealed top layer of the plastics making them even more susceptible to staining.
WD-40 + Rag + Elbow Grease works like a charm.
I’ve used 15/40 diesel oil with absolutely no problem, chevron or shell work just fine, you never know what you will find on a long ride, but I’ve changed oil in the Fairbanks Walmart and their car shop takes your old oil.... and your new oil pan you just bought:))
I hate oil posts but that pic was too cool to not like. Rotella T4. Nothing but the best for my girl.
Yup, Rotella is great for these bikes. 5W40 if you can find it, 15W40 otherwise.
Now the real question is what do you dump in that fancy TPI tank? Oil tank, i got all kinds of sled 2 stroke oil....
I hope a 300 TPI can throw sand like mother flocking 501 can,? Just saying, still the best all around bike hands down IMOP
Make sure you get the correct OD shims.
No the best is owning both! I like the 501 for more open terrain and the TPI for technical stuff but both bikes do anything very well.
5W-40 is synthetic and 15W-40 is a group III dino. Jaso MA2is the spec you are looking for, I personally wouldn't use anything les unless I had no choice. Liqui Moly can be found in 4L containers for $70 CDN so no more than $15US/L.
You need a Black Magic Marker for that one!
501 still throws more sand and you know it!! :)))) shit I still got and in my balls:)
I think there’s a T6 15W40 synthetic as well.
Yeah ok T6 I would chance. The other stuff is for my tractor lol.
Buy a barrel!
Oh it does.
In my x challenge I started running the Amsoil Dirt bike oil 10/50. It runs clean and quieted the old gal down a lot. Plus it seems to be better on the clutch. I've been half tempted to go to it in the husky.
501 has more ballz (uncorked) but the 300 is much easier to grunt up ledges and root steps, thread through tight singletrack and hairpin steep switchbacks. Sure there's some overlap, but both are essential parts of the arsenal for the true dirt aficionado.
Just ask @Anatoli & @Nowwhat
501 is such a cheater bike.... giggling as you lazily ride up janky uphill switchbacks as if on a trials bike
