    Oh damn really! I took the whole idea of a hare scramble that invloved finding Easter Eggs and peeling Potatos between laps - as a solid idea!

    thanks for the tip. I talked to him for an hour or so on Sunday and he never said anything. So today I called him up.
    Sure think that x Trainer (with proper springs) would fit my bill perfect :).

    I've been approached by two people so far.
    First, a girl who's son was born with spinal damage caused at birth, He had very little chance of survival and less chance of ever walking. He is now 5 I believe and learning to ride dirt bikes and wants to race them in the future. Very cool story. She would like to do a benefit for Shriners Hospital since they did all the surgeries and never cost her a dime.

    Second was a friend of Billy Jones, some of you guys know him well. She was at a typical dentist visit and i think the dentist dropped something in her eye that caused an infection leading to her losing her eye. She started a charity to raise money to provide safety glasses to dental offices to give to their patients to wear during procedures. She also started a huge charity that has been on the news a number of times and donates to a few other charities.
    Billy and I talked about doing an event that would be a 'race' of sorts, but based on a two person team, one being an adult and the other being a child. Basically like a relay fun race where parents can participate with their children, It would then bring a ton of people that never get exposed to the offroad community and show them how family oriented it is and maybe even change a few preconceived notions about the type of people we are.

    I'm ready to do the next event if anyone else is!

    What i am ready is to try to figure out this beta situation.

    So , i have this up on the bench cooking (literally ) and i have no coolant leaks whatsoever . So the symptoms were that the bike smelled like antifreeze and associated with that would be an oil like smell , and i disld notice some leaks down along the head outlet hose .

    So . We cooking here . Nothing leaks . Radiator cap is holding , well sort off , the overflow hose was factory zip tied too tight , and it was plugged solid , i do get this much see pic after 15 - 20 mins of cookin.

    Now i am tryna see wtf this shit is up here , a transmission case breather ? Pissing what ? Oil ? Whatever liquid was coming out of there evaporated by the time i got back to the lot . Wtf ?

    Opinions?

    I haven't seen anyone here run filters/valves on their vent hoses. They are the hot set up but hard to find. I've got a set on the 450 I think I got from Kevins Cycles in MA mail order.

    Crankcase vent stock hose runs down by rear shock linkage. I had trouble with water getting in there and replaced it with a silicone tube and ran it up by steering head.

    The nipple it connects to is right by starter motor, clutch side.

    Is the coolant level ok? Is it antifreeze or water from puddles? Could it be a water pump seal issue?

    Anything... and I mean ANYTHING I can do to help out the Shriners Hospital I'm in for!!! Without a doubt! They did so much for a cousin of mine and his parents! The Ronald McDonald house across the street put them up during his countless surgeries as well. (I think he underwent like 34 surgeries in only 11 yrs standing Upright on this earth!
