    Chadwick this weekend, first trip on the 300. All plastic can be returned to inspiration cabins. [emoji4]
  6. Thanks ccullins, If I don't like what I did I am blaming you for affirming what I did! Actually, I appreciate all the input. I have a lot to learn.
  7. Split, that keeps all the jerk on one forum.
  8. I am @ 1000-2000 feet around here. Next month moab 4k-5kish this fall taylor park 7500-13,000 Who has this better jetting that you speak of. The forum is all over the place and usually ends up in a oil discussion, which may be relevant but leaves more questions than answers. I think if I could get it right here at my altitude I could anticipate the others correctly. I have half a mind to just delete the OI but we do some long trips that would be nice to have it. I have been trying to come up with a plan to use the oil tank to carry the oil and then meter it directly into the tank when I fill up. To avoid carrying bottles. Like a little petcock on the bottom and keep a little light weight cup under the seat...? I am relived that little to no smoke is not necessarily a sign of no oil. I will check the plug as well. Thanks GP
  9. I am always a bit nervous to start a new thread, especially about a topic that has so much info available. I just want to be careful and not burn up my bike. I recently did a small overhaul on my bikes suspension. In doing so I took off the air box and oil injection system. When I put it back together I primed the oil line from the pump to the carb neck so I wouldn't have any run time without oil. (thought that was smart) I should mention that the bike is new to me, I bought it this winter and only put a couple hours on it. During those couple hours I had noticed some issues with spooge and bogging off idle especially when cold. So while I had it apart I pulled the jets. According to the Beta Chart it had been jetted for 7500-10000 feet which makes sense as it came from the black hills in SD. I installed the correct jets for my altitude and current temp, got the bike back together and fired it up! Sooooooo..... I am new to two strokes but I was guessing that richening the jetting would make More spooge, and more smoke. I only rode for a couple minutes so I can't comment on the spooge but it has almost no smoke. This would not bother me except I had the OI out and want to make sure that the smoke difference is the jetting change and not the OI not working. I also put in AMSoil Dominator. Not sure what was in it but it was blue. Questions: 1. Could richer/correct jetting cause less smoking? 2. If I had spooge, wouldn't richening make it worse? It was owned by and older gentleman (72yrs) so i am guessing not hammered and the packing may be saturated 3. Without tearing out the OI (I know the arguments) can I be assured it is pumping oil? In the few minutes I rode it it ran great, with my limited experience I would have to say that the low was more crisp and less boggy on the pipe seemed more responsive. It all is new to me and I don't always know what I am feeling but love the bike and don't want to burn it up. You guys have helped learn a lot bout this bike so thanks. Gary, I just realized when I signed that the name "Gary" gives no credibility to my enduro prowess. The tag on my 500 says "Raging Petunia" so go figure
  10. A buddy has them on his xt. He doesn't complain. Three guys I ride with have them and like them. Not bear proof though [emoji199]! Found out this summer
  11. I prefer the plywood on the top of the bucket. New shoes for the princesses. Out with the old in with the Shinko/Tubliss.
  12. Kansas

    I am one of your most loyal subscribers, and have been for almost 5 minutes now. Remember me when the $2.50 starts rolling in. [emoji4]
  13. New plastics Shock springs and oil (thanks for help) Pipe o-ring 3 gallon tank Brake light Inner fender Air box Sub frame (upper) On deck: Shinko 505 cheater x two Shinko F546 x two Graphics Ride on, hopefully Rockies next weekend. Thanks for the help TT. All firsts for me.
  14. Does larger spring use less oil, or is it insignificant? I went up two spring sizes.
  15. FUHL, It's ok to be wrong. [emoji4] actually we aren't great this year. Fun time of year. Guess we'll just have to comfort ourselves with 14 straight conference championships. [emoji106] Zags ara strong.
