No-Toil Filters

Got my No-Toil Cannondale filters. They look and fit great. They make them for the E,C,X, and the Quads, but not the front filter on the X440S.

Glenn:

very kewl....I will order mine once I am out of the field....cant believe I have a connection to the Web....but I guess even the army can work strange things eh?

Wife called me and I got my forks back from Les today...so I am supposed to redeploy on Thursday or Friday and will hang em on and give em a run!

HR,

FYI, I've used the No-Toil on the stock filters a couple times with no problem while I was waiting for the new filters. I quickly dry the alcohol carrier with compressed air. Long term use who knows?

If you liked the forks stock, you will love them now, providing you were happy with the stock springs. I was able to do some serious knarly rock stuff this weekend with the bike, and the fork is still a shade too stiff even with the .42s and base valve changes, which it shouldn't be. I (and Les) suspect the midvalve is very stiff, and he is working on a mod now to lighten it up. The equivalent mod on the WPs produced an outstanding fork for the rocky woods. MX and or heavier riders never notice this, and think the fork is great, but it causes more deflection on rock hits, not fun.

GP:

had a long discussion with les on that....mainly the spring weight of 47 stock. I am bout 220 before my gear....so I think I may work them a bit more than you!...think???? :D

Cant wait to bolt em on....the forks were pretty close for me as they were, but with Les in them for the seal change, and I was looking for a bit more supple action on the rocks and roots, but still maintain the control on high speed whooops....he set me up he said.....so cant wait....

Barko lounger forks, got the correct spring weight for me fat butt in the rear...and the EFM clutch!.. :D

Damn.....e start and auto clutch.....I love this getting old thing! :)

:D

That was my point. In addition to working the stiff springs, you may not notice the midvalve stiffness either. If you deflect off sharp edges at all with the new base valve settings, the midvalve is most likely the problem. Im also looking to quicken the steering a bit. I need it to settle in the turns more on braking, and I think that will work out as well with the same mod. Were talking fine tuning for a speciality application here. I'm sure you will find the forks vastly improved.

      It has become very hard to find an atk speedo, although I just got one off ebay after watching for a year. I just saw the exact same speedometer on a Yamaha XT550. I looked on eBay, and there are several Yamaha xt speedometers, some new. So in all,  atk speedometer is also a Yamaha speedometer for those of us looking and unaware of the part crossover.

      For those who may be still playing around with street legal XRs and looking for a Speedo, the Atk Speedometer has been thrown around as being a good option. It has become very hard to find one, although I just got one off ebay after watching for a year. I just saw the exact same speedometer on a Yamaha XT550. I looked on eBay, and there are several Yamaha xt speedometers, some new for sale. So in all. "the" atk speedometer is also a Yamaha speedometer.

      Hi all, first of all I'm new here and I thank you all in advance for your time and any advice you may have to offer me. heres the deal- I recently purchased a 2013 KTM duke 690. love the bike, not a thing wrong with it, BUT- originally was looking for something a little more towards the supermoto end of the spectrum and something I that could put knobbies on and go offroad every now and then. Was also looking real hard at a drz400sm but I settled on the duke because I got a good deal on it and I love the look and the ride and im about 85/15 street/dirt so it made sense for me to go with something more street oriented rather than sacrifice the power that I would need on the highway. Now im entertaining a trade offer- a 2007 bmw xmoto g650. The bmw has 9000 miles and has been well kept and maintained. My duke has 5000 miles. obviously the KTM is worth more, but it should be noted that the KTM does have a rebuilt title which affects the value- although the bike is in perfect shape. The bmw has a clean title. I'm curious to hear from anyone who has experience with both bikes what the pros and cons of each would be in your opinion. I have only been riding for less than two years, started on a yamaha 350 dual sport and have not riden much besides that and my KTM so I am still figuring out what my preferences are. I know this is a question of personal preference but I'd like to hear opinions from folks with more experience riding than I have. Factors I'm looking at are the ride and feel, performance, maintenance, reliability, and anything else you can think of. top speed is not an issue, 105 on the BMW is more than enough for me. as far as look goes, I honestly prefer the look of the bmw (don't hang me for saying that, orange just isn't my color)  I'm supposed to go check out the BMW tomorrow. attatched a pic of the actual bike im thinking of trading for. Thanks in advance to anyone whos got an opinion/advice for me.
