  1. Would you be able to post specs/links/etc for your parts? I'd love to copy your setup.
  2. Well, I'm back to (3) RED and (3) BLUE. I did like the engagement of the (6) RED/LOW. However, what I HATED was the disengagement. For months now, I've been chasing this damned over rev on decel. Kept fattening the airscrew up, assuming it was lean. Sucked because using engine braking downhill was jerky as hell. Well, just as I was about to give up and buy a lectron, I decided a hail mary and try going back to (3) RED, (3) BLUE on the Rekluse. Well, as it turns out, that was it. Over rev on decel is almost completely gone. Leaned the airscrew back out to where it should be. Still good. I'm guessing the clutch was engaging/disengaging and causing the engine to rev (disengaged) then back down (engaged) and back and forth.
  3. Had been running mine in position 1 (stock) from day one. Just on a whim, I flipped it to position 4. Figured it drop the rear just a touch, and I probably not good enough to notice the difference in handling. BOY was I wrong (still not a good rider, though). I absolutely HATED position 4. Front end wanted to wash out at any little turn in. Sure, it felt a little better in deep sand, but that front end was unridable. Felt like either riding on a bald front, or one WAY over inflated. Changed it to position 2 and love it now. Front end feels a touch lighter in the sand (than stock), but still planted on hard pack. Again, I did not expect to be able to notice the difference at my skill level, but it is very noticeable.
  4. So they're using pine instead of oak?
  5. I've had almost constant clutch reservoir issues. First was my clutch slave cylinder had some rough spots. Smoothed out the rough spots with scottbrite and replaced the oring. Still leaked. Replaced it with a Rekluse. Still have leaks. Found that the reservoir cover has a small divot, presumably for a vacuum break. I was leaking a tiny bit of fluid out there, especially when I laid it down. I put a very small bead of RTV on the cover gasket, some of which plugged that vacuum break. Then, I have a BRP submount and BRP hand guard mounts on top. Well, it seems the hand guard mounts were putting a good amount of pressure on my clutch hose. Actually wore through the rubber guard on the hose. The hose itself was not compromised, but it was wet under the hose guard. I think the pressure was pressing on the hose fitting and causing a very small leak around the threads of the fitting. Tweaked the angle of the clutch perch so that I have a gap between the hose and the hand guard mount. Haven't had a chance to ride it enough to see if the latest fix stopped all the leaks. No idea why I have had so many issues with it. It's the exact same reservoir and similar line as on my KTM. The hose clearance issue was self-induced.
  6. Cool shirt. And yes. As I posted in another thread, I kinda intentionally went in the opposite direction yesterday. "Old" jeep (2015) was just too fancy/nice to take off-road. "Downgraded" to a new 2017 Rubicon Recon. Much more spartan, far fewer bells/whistles.
  7. Can someone with a factory Voyager upload a pic of the temp sensor please?
  8. I'd want it more for the tach and engine temp more than anything. The GPS is cool, but I really doubt I'd use it THAT much. Most rides are just "winging it" and not planned out.
  9. Anyone know if the Trail Tech is a plug in replacement for those of us with a regular speedo?
  10. Yeah, second that. Sounds like a float problem to me too.
  11. I always run my fingers around the paremeter to feel that it's seated properly. Haven't had any dust in the intake.
  12. Just about identical story here. Have the same setup on mine, but really only because I got a good deal. On my KTM, a stabilizer is absolutely necessary. Damned near unrideable without it. But the Beta, it's more of a 'nice to have' than a necessity.
  13. Sierra Motor Sports Beta has factory graphix for ~$85.
  14. Apparently, we have the same taste in tires. 403/404 were my go to. Regretted every single time I strayed from that. Currently running the X30s on the KTM and an X30 front and Sedona MX907 on the rear of the 300rr. All four Tubliss. Did not like the Sedona @ 9 PSIS at all, but it's awesome at 6. Rode another 300rr with a GT Fatty in the front. Kinda liked the "big" feel of it. Will try it next time. All in all, X30s are hard to beat.
  15. I used Gates 32925 (15/16" to 1 1/16").
