    Acerbis Vision handguards.......Anyone using them.

    I have standard brush guards so I don't know how good the type you're talking about are, if visibility is more concern than lighting up the road then maybe eagle eyes or mirror mounted lights are a possibility,see images of what I mean. The eagle eyes can be mounted through the headlight shroud. Hope this is of interest, I have used aliexpress.com as a supplier, cheap as chips as long as you don't mind waiting for them to arrive Good luck

    Appropriate technique for removing grips

    Hi, I used wd40 on mine and they slid off a treat, the throttle body has little barb type extrusions on and is more difficult but they were supprisingly quick and easy to remove intact. I washed my bar ends with dish wash soap to degrease. I fitted Oxford Adventure heated grips which were easy to fit but needed thought and care. Use a grip glue to finish. Hope this helps.

    ATF from cylinder head? Pics

    You haven't used acf50 on the bike have you, have you checked the smell and feel of it between your finger and thumb,. Wipe it off spotlessly and see if it returns

    Exhaust question

    Not sure if it would suit your situation but my yam cruiser exhaust has a collar on the silencer which is a slippy graphite type material, I would think you could get one and modify it or maybe buy it in roll or sheet form

    2003 ktm 300exc mechanical help

    You say it's a rotor bolt that's done it, I'm not sure that's possible unless one has come loose now or at some time in the past, but like everyone says a total strip down of the rear end is well over due. With a lot of patience and time it can be sorted, more routine inspection and maintenance required going forward from here on. A good inspection is required now. I'm sure this is not the only issue, check suspension linkages, wheel and swing arm bearings. Good luck

    folding shift lever?

    What about a piece of aluminium made into some kind of triangular shape to form a ramp for collisions which sticks out enough to protect from tip overs. Perhaps bolted/riveted onto strong sump guard ( or something like that, I'd have to take a look to come up with an idea [emoji41]

    folding shift lever?

    As far as I can gather the OEM rally lever was made with the intention of being bendy, the original 250 lever was so strong it was bending selector shafts, obviously much more work and expense. Maybe some sort of guard / protector in that area is the answer

    What do you recommend to get this off?

    Slightly off topic but I had one vibrate out where my fear of over tightening it had left it not tight enough, my boot, trouser leg and the left side of my bike was sprayed with oil, (On an 1100 yam and £48 for a replacement)
