    Thanks for your thoughts!! I was out there on Sunday just looking around and talked to 3 different groups of dirtbikers, they all said that LEO's and Park Ranger's have never given them problems about riding as long as they had OHV stickers. The LEO's are mostly looking for dumpers and stolen cars. Looks promising.

    I was hoping someone more familiar with that area would respond. I'm in Pueblo, my wife is in Hospice here and it is just a few miles south of that site. I have been out there hiking a few times in the last couple of weeks, I see no signage stating it is closed AND I have been seeing ATV, SxS, and dirtbikes riding out there every time I have been there. A buddy said he had friends out there a few weeks ago riding with no problems and he was down here last spring and we are planning to ride as soon as he is off the disabled list. I'm figuring first of the week to bring my bike down to do some exploring myself. According to my buddy, it is open to ride Ya I know third-hand information but I believe him enough to try myself the first of the week. It did rain most of the day today and high tomorrow and Sunday is supposed to be only 41 or so. I know that everything west of canon city is snow covered day before yesterday when I did a round trip home and back to Pueblo.

    Slime vs Stan’s (latex) for Tubliss?

    I believe that is the one as if I remember one said tubeless tire and one said for tubes, the tire sealant has larger filaments. Sorry, I would go look in the shop but I'm away for a few days. Here is a link one states inner tube sealant. I went to WalMart and looked at both of them and made the decision based on what I saw in the container. https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-ab&ei=9FkuXPXvEq6K5wLZjJTQBg&q=slime+tire+sealant&oq=slime+tire&gs_l=psy-ab.3.2.0l10.4758.6759..9503...0.0..0.481.1332.0j2j2j0j1......0....1..gws-wiz.......0i71j0i67j0i131i67j0i131.F-6HE65wRJM

    I have plugged a lot of tires with Slime in them never had a failure because of slim. If there was a failure it was because I didn't put enough plugs into the tire. my record is 6 plug in one hole and the slim didn't affect the plug at all and I ran those till the tire was shot like 500+ miles of offroad. After all slim is a sealant: there are two different Slims I use the one that has the larger filaments in it. I have used the Dynaplug as well fine for small holes even if you put multiples in they are small. I shop all over for different plugs as there are different sizes I probably carry 5 different sizes so I have one for the size of the hole. And don't be afraid to use multiples in there!!

    Slime vs Stan’s (latex) for Tubliss?

    Depends on your riding. I have used both with good luck BUT if you have high speeds in your sights the Stans will turn into a latex ball in your rear tire because of the heat generated. I have never had it happen to the front, but pretty consistently in the rear with high-speed work. I talked to Tubliss about it and they say to use slime. Slim is easier to see when you do get a puncture but stans may do a better job of sealing it up. So if I'm only going to do slower speed single track I use the Stans if I know I'm going to do road work or high-speed desert work I use the Slim. No, I don't change to go from one to the other, but if I know I have a big Moab trip coming up I go with the slim if it is summer and I have the high country in my sights I use the Stans. If you do use the Slim use the stuff or tires; not for tubes as it has larger particles If you do use Slim, Tubliss suggest to use it for lube when mounting your tire they state that if you use H2O and soap it affects the slim in a negative way. But it is really green and looks awful when you mount with it, just saying, plus is more of a mess to clean up. I use the pump large size slim to get it into a tire after mounting and I use a syringe to get the stans into a mounted tire, I found it less messy than trying to get the stuff into the tire and then finish mounting it. Stans makes dismounting tires, more of a challenge because it glues the tire onto the rim. Not horrible but it does make breaking the bead a little more challenging.
  14. This is the company I bought from I had them do a manual switch rather than the in hose sensor. I didn't want to have to drain the coolant and with the Trail Tech Vapor, I can set a light telling me when to turn the fan on and then another light when I'm getting way to hot. Since I put the fans on I have never reached the second light :-) My fuel tank doesn't allow me to run the Trail tech fan set-up as there is no room: these fans are only 25mm thick and even with minimum clearance to the fuel tank they work great. They were great to do business with and the kit works great it even hooked into my KTM wiring harness. I was able to tell them what I wanted and they did a kit and put in onto eBay for me to buy. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Automatic-KTM-Double-Cooling-Fan-Kit-SXF-XC-F-XCW-EXC-250-530/162771280056?hash=item25e5eca0b8:g:OoEAAOSwhcJWO-I7 update- TT fan kit is 147 cfm the kit I did with twin 92mm fans= 160 cfm
  15. I agree, my bike came with Evans and high-pressure cap when I bought it the previous owner said " it never overheats" after running a temp gauge on my new speedo combo I realized that there is a big difference between overheating and boiling over. He should have said it never " boils over" I now am running a pair of fans and I know that I'm not getting hot because I can see what temp I'm actually running at. Doing trail work and wandering around looking for connections I was running hot but not boiling over. Not any longer love the fan set-up and with the temp gauge, I know what is going on.
