  1. That's right, I have guys run the Rekluse Torq Drive manual clutches in the 250-295cc race motors as they make too much power for a stock clutch. The steel inserts seem to do the trick to protect the basket and the added plates can take the 46-51 horsepower.
  2. Many metals won't react to a magnet, specifically the aluminum widely used in these engines...
  3. Real simple: put it on the bike and see if its pins clear the cases by 1mm or so with the chain pushed to the right while on the front sprocket...
  4. The triple clamps with the "taller" bottom bearing should bolt right up. I likely have a used and/or new set if you need them.
  5. check the voltage at the battery, it should be around 13V. Then, start the bike and make sure you have at least 14.5V going to it. It's not normal for the battery to drain when it's off as there's nothing hooked up that would drain the battery unless there's a malfunctioning relay. You could put an inline current meter on the battery and look for a non-binding current draw which might be draining your battery.
  6. The Dam is a decent place to ride for sure.
  7. Nice find. That's for the L, so the X with the 6-speed Trans should have that same wider frame, too. This means the Trans isn't a drop-in change to the R-RX bikes, though, and the motors aren't an easy direct swap. And the swingarm and rear wheels may differ.
  8. Not if they're sharing the same frame, swingarm and rear wheel they won't have a wider left-side of the case...
  9. That's still a pretty mellow motor, you'll be fine with the stock injector and ECU.
  10. Gears are thicker in the newer motor. I think they were thicker (cases were wider) in the 2013-2016 than the 2009-2012, too. I forget. More contact area is what we're after. Share the load...
  11. They had gear problems so they made the gears quite a bit thicker in the newer motor... I didn't need to read that they're thinner but I know trying to fit six of something where there were once only 5 means they are thinner. The 6-speed gears will be getting about back to the thickness where they had the longevity problems...
  12. I can make 46+hp with the stock injector with ease with a pretty highly modified motor. If your motor is basically stock, you're far better off with a simple remap or an engine package that gets the power where you need it to be.
  13. You might want to wait to see how the ~17% thinner gears hold up in the 6-speed vs the 5-speed...
  14. Why do you need dual injectors? Is the one in it, now, not providing enough fuel for a modded motor or something!
  15. There will never be another 2-stroke Honda dirt bike. How come you guys keep believing the rumors? Every year it's the same thing...
