  1. While I'm not totally sure, I used it to tighten down my handle bar clamp bolts (the ones that are hidden underneath the handlebar itself). I was out on a trail ride and my handlebars were wobbling. In short, those bolts had come loose. They are an allen head, but the torx was all that was in there and it worked to get me home.
  2. I'm in the upper Midwest. I think I'd sell it for $4k if I was you. But only sell it to me
  3. I'm no expert, but from what I understand you can't tune your carb based on the spooge. For that, you have to assess the spark plug and how the machine is running at various rpms. Spooge can be caused from a bike being too rich, but not always. My bike is perfectly dialed in and I was getting spooge like you had. I switch from motul 800 to 710 and now I have no spooge at all. Motul 710 has a lower flash point than the 800, so it burns up at a lower temp than the 800. Anyone, please correct me if I'm wrong, but this is what I believe is correct.
  4. I agree with the others. It's probably pretty close, depending on how hard you are riding. I get 75 miles to the tank if I'm riding it hard (and my idea of hard is taking it pretty easy haha), 85 - 90 miles if I take it easy knowing it's a long ways to a gas stop.
  5. I did this and it fixed my spooge problem down low. I was also using the motul 800 and switched to the 710. The 710 spooged way less than the 800. I used to get a lot of spooge drooling down the end of the pipe, and now I just get a little that collects.
  6. Oh, let the "like" shower begin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  7. Here is what another user directed me to. I ordered the bushings today. http://www.betarider.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1357&hilit=bushing
  8. Good call. It's a 15 300rr.
  9. What kind of bushing did you put in there? Has it held up?
  10. That's what I figured it would be too. But it definitely isn't. It's definitely the tab that's welded on to the frame. I agree. If it was the kick stand I probably wouldn't care so much. But I don't want the hole in the frame to wear out. It will be easier to fix it now rather than later.
  11. Some bikes (looks like KTM) comes with a replaceable bushing in there. I think that's what I need. I'm thinking something like this? Drill it out, put in a steel bushing, and call it a day. Replace the bushing as needed. I found these bushings on amazon.
  12. My kickstand is getting quite a bit of wobble. I figured out that the bolt that goes through the kickstand is fine, but the metal part of the dirt bike frame, where the bolt passes through, is getting worn out. What do guys do to fix this? Drill it out and put a bushing of some kind in there? I appreciate any tips. Thanks.
  13. Hard to beat the Rotella.
  14. Same here. My bike is a 2015 and I've never changed the battery.
  15. Thanks for those tips. I appreciate it. I ride in the michigan sand, but never a 100% sand-filled dune. Most of our trails have sand at one point or another. I never lube the chain (I have an o ring chain). I knew about the filter skins. I want to start using them all the time anyways just to make it easier. I just saw the post about removing the seat to check the air filter. Man. I never knew this. I'll be doing that every time from now on. I always grease the rim already. I have an in-line fuel filter that I installed when I bought the bike new. And I'll add some grease around the axles and seals. That's a great idea. Thanks Krannie.
