  1. Never discussed the RR. Yes, dealer should know his product . AGM - 4 1/2 light weight pounds . Lithium is a heavy .9/10 pound. at least it runs good , unlike the ktms/huskys that don't when new. He is also proud of the 500 watt stator.
  2. New 500 has a agm battery. Prior to purchase, friend visited dealer 2 times to check on battery and weight rumors. Dealer assured him that it's got a lithium battery. Both employees even warned him about using the correct charger for the lithium battery. popped off seat after purchase and revealed a 4.5 pound agm ,WTF there's the weight question answered. Buyer Beware! He will be stopping by the BETA store to try a new seat out this week. Will update

  9. Read this story before using mineral oil http://www.motomorgana.com/end-mineral-clutch-oil/
  10. New oem replacement lasted 5 minutes The oem fitting is too close to the starter I noticed the clu4000 fitting location is more serviceable and puts less strain on the hose fitting. It also straightens out the hose run which will give the hose a little more slack up top at the controls I installed the clu4000. Using DOT 4 Ordered it from Blue streak racing in Canada eBay, the ad for the orange one, They have lots of blue ones. Call them

    Changing tires without ruining the back rims?

    These work for me . I use 2 pair on one wheel with bungie balls hooked to the spokes to keep them in place. And way too much soap Motion Pro RimShield II Part# 1434920001
