    Rekluse RadiusX FPG and Clake ProLever

    I ended up removing the clutch boss spring and thinner steel plate from bottom of the pack. I should have followed the book rather than the video. Works great now.

    Rekluse RadiusX FPG and Clake ProLever

    So I'm finally getting around to getting this thing installed and seem to be having a problem. Bike is a 17 300rr. The book says to remove the clutch boss spring from the bottom of the pack, but the video said to keep it in. Currently it's installed. Whats it supposed to be? I can't seem to be able to set the install gap properly. The clutch throw out doesn't go out far enough to disengage the clutch. Rekluse said I might need another washer on the end of the throwout rod. I have a Clake Prolever installed but I don't think that should be an issue though.
  3. It has normal threads
  4. Is the impeller bolt reverse threaded?

    USWE hydration pack with chest protector?

    I have this one from the MTB series https://www.uswe-sports.com/us/packs/mtb/airborne-15 I think it has more storage? Anyway it fits good over an A-stars A-10 chest protector w/o a neck brace. I'm 5'10" and 200lbs. I can carry quarts of gas in the helmet flap. Customer service was good a few years ago when a zipper failed. No problems since

    Boano H2O pump upgrade

    Yeah, you need to pay attention to what's going on. Last year I called them to order some parts and as an afterthought said throw in a set of rear sprocket bolts. I looked at the bill when the package arrived and saw that the bolt set was $42! I promptly returned them

    Boano H2O pump upgrade

    Any one know the difference between these two products? http://www.motosupply.com/boano-race-parts-boano-beta-stroke-oversized-water-impeller-p-1920.html http://www.motosupply.com/beta-motorcycles-beta-300rr250rr-beta-stroke-oversized-water-impeller-p-202.html Both say Oversize but there's quite the price difference.
  8. This has the best harness and doesn't flop around. Also no waist belt. There's different versions with more or less storage. Customer service was good a few years ago when a zipper failed. No problems since https://www.uswe-sports.com/us/packs/moto/ranger-9
  9. Any tips on setting the free play gain with a ProLever set up? My Clake is set up to have very little clutch pull before rear brake comes on.

    Tubliss- Love/hate relationship

    I'm out most weekends. I've been getting about 80 hours on a Sedona 907 rear and Michelin Starcross 5 Hard front

    Tubliss- Love/hate relationship

    I also build a little cardboard hot box with sawhorses and use a 500w halogen work light to bake the new and old tires for a few hours. Right before I install the new one i'll work the beads with a $15 Harbor Freight heat gun. Even heavy carcass rear tires go on fairly easy.

    Zip ties and lube have helped me get the liner on the rim a little easier. It's easier to keep it in the drop center that way

    S.E. Idaho Klim Cow Tag ride

    Anyone know if the trails they are riding out of KC are open to the public? I used to live in Victor and accessed a lot of the Big Hole and Snake River Range trails from the east side, but never as far as KC. A buddy raced the Cow Tag last year and said the course was awesome. I'll be back up next week and would like to explore a little bit

    Best 2t MPG?

    Last weekend I got some great gas mileage on the 17' 300rr. I had just rejetted for riding at high altitude, 7500-10500' on the Beta chart. Actual riding was from 8k-12k+ with some long climbs. I started off w/ a full tank of ethanol free gas 91 oct. (first time trying the pure gas/second tank) and dumped in a quart of same gas when we stopped for lunch. When we got back to camp there was 40 miles on our odometers. I went to the pump and added .85 gallons to top off the tank. So .85g plus .25g = 1.1g and 40mi/1.1g=36mpg? My best mpg to date was 28, at lower altitude, richer jetting and corn gas. Was it the leaner jetting or pure gas , or the combo, responsible for the increase?
