    Is this better than what I already have?

    I just had my forks serviced; fluids changed, all seals and rubber replaced and the fork tubes trued and they are actually better than when they were new.

    Fuel Screw O-ring

    Cool, thanks for the link. Hopefully I can find one at a local parts strore that will at least get me through the day tomorrow then I can order the correct one.

    Fuel Screw O-ring

    So it just looks like a regular black "donut" O-ring that I could buy at any hardware store ?

    Fuel Screw O-ring

    My aftermarket fuel screw backed out of the carb and luckily came to rest on top of the cases along with the spring. Unfortunately I can't find the o-ring. Does anyone have a pic or can you give me a description of the o-ring ? Is it a flat nylon washer or a true rubber o-ring and does it slip over the tip of the screw or seat at the bottom ? Thanks in advance.

    2007 450 rear brake

    Gray, I'm assuming changing pads will fix the contaminated pad problem but what do you do if the rotor is contaminated ?

    "shock savers" while transporting...

    A year or so ago Motocross Action Magazine had a letter asking about this same thing. The editor responded by saying if the suspension can take a hit from the landing off a 40 ft. double then it can certainly take an hour or two of being lightly compressed in the back of your truck.

    Bunk Motul ?

    It was definitly clear and shiny. It was impossible for me to tell if the consistency was the same as some of the older oil I had on my shelf so I just ditched it. I'd rather eat $8 than trash a motor !

    Bunk Motul ?

    Yeah, its weird. I live so far from where I bought it that I'll probably just eat the cost but I don't think I'll buy Motul again. I hope if it was contaminated that whatever is left in the engine won't hurt anything.

    Bunk Motul ?

    Changed my oil today and as I crack open the plastic bottle of Motul semi-synthetic and start to pour it in I notice that its super light in color kind of like champagne colored. I knew I had some leftover Motul so I got it out and it was a normal amber color. Has anyone ever had this happen ? I drained it and replaced it with the only thing I had, regular Yamalube (not even R). I'll do one ride on that and drain it too. Opinions ?

    Fork Bleeder Valves

    I second the vote for the Anderson Automatics, they are very low profile and I haven't had any leaks so far.
  11. Definitly ProTaper KX High, I was told that was the highest bend available. Where are you guys getting your higher clamps from ???

    tall setup

    Also add Pro-Taper KX high bend bars and Fastway pegs (which can be lowered about 1/2". Along with the tall seat these mods make life more bearable for over 6 footers.
  13. OK yeah I've got a big foot and it keeps hitting the brake pedal in mid-air. Anybody make one thats maybe 3/4" longer ??
