  1. I also have a 2017 350 XCF. I rode Idaho single track all last summer with no flameouts. At 70 hours I started experiencing flameout issues on a trip to Utah last fall. I adjusted my recluse core exp and turned up my idle. Changed fuel filter. Those tweaks helped a bit. Have not ridden since. I plan on checking the valve clearance since I am at 78.4 hours. I also heard that maybe it could me the tip over sensor? Any other tweaks to chase or follow would appreciated.
  2. What brand of tie down is in the attached picture?

    How to cut windfall in the woods safely

    Check out the book by Douglas Dent Professional Timber Falling: A Procedural Approach. It is a classic must read resource.

    Radiator

    I installed a Mylers radiator earlier this spring on 2014 350 EXC and my fan has yet to come on. I believe it runs much cooler. OEM size radiator braces won't fit the Mylers.

    Header clearance

    The header pipe is really close to the temp sensor and wires to the fan. Has anyone had any luck with heat shield material or am I just basically gonna fry the sensor?
  8. I recently installed a new Mylers radiator. After installation, The thermostat is very very close to the header pipe. I tried adjusting the header pipe for more clearance but it is still close. Any ideas/suggestions or input would be greatly appreciated!

    rekluse Clutch

    I have 170 hours on a core exp on my 350 excf. I ride Idaho single track and I am not very fast. Engine braking is not a problem, give a little gas or down shift and the clutch stays engaged.Getting denied on a hill climb is a different story. Had to install the LHRB.
  10. Along that same thought pattern, The bearings could be engineered for a specific impeller size to push a specific amount of coolant. I have no idea what is beyond the shaft and seal as I have never seen or removed more of the water pump beyond the cover and impeller.I also wonder about the profile of a larger impeller an cover being more prone to hitting immovable objects. As xrsingle track stated, less fan time equals cooler running bike, seems a good thing. Also what is a Samco thermostat bypass kit?

  11. How can I find out if I need new shaft bearings/seals?
  12. I cracked the water pump cover and removed it. I also removed what looks to be a plastic turbine/wheels that looks like it pushes coolant. It was damaged. Can I just replace the cover and the plastic wheel/turbine? Or do I need to check (somehow) to see if the pump is damaged?

    Beat the heat in Idaho?

    Supposed to hit mid 90's in the west central mountains. Most of the trails near Burgdorf outside of McCall are clear of trees. So is the South Salmon near Stolle Meadows. Record high temps in the forecast.

    Swimming with EXC 350-F

    Do you remove the tank so you can access the plug to remove it? Thanks!
