  1. USWE makes a phone pouch accessory for the chest strap on their hydration packs. Works great; however, it's a tight fit for my Samsung galaxy 8 note. Probably perfect fit for an iphone. https://www.uswe-sports.com/us/accessories/phone-pocket

    Tire changing spoons and other tools

    Agree... I was always struggling, but bought real tire lube and it was transformative.

    GPS Locators?

    I use Viewranger. Great trail maps (I think it's $5/year for premium version). Buddy beacon function allows others to track your location. Has a cool 3D viewing feature to watch your ride in 3 dimensions after-the-fact (and you can manipulate the perspective and viewing angle). I've found this to be the best all-around mapping app for hiking, mountain biking, dirt biking, etc. It works via GPS, however, you need cell coverage for the buddy beacon to work. If you ride in areas without cell coverage, then I'd get a Garmin InReach mini and pair it with your cell phone.

    Best tires for trail riding??

    Chuck, are you running those trials tires with tubes? What are you running on the front wheel? Thanks

    Best Gopro Mounting Position

    Unless you have a break- away mount, I wouldn't mount a go pro on the top or side (or even on the chin) for the reason you've already discovered. You definitely don't want a branch or a vine to snag on it and break your neck. Also, even the mount sticking out on the side (or front) of the helmet could catch on something during a fall. The helmet is designed to slide when it hits the ground. Again, unless you have break away mounts, the best place to install on your helmet is on the visor, which is designed by the helmet manufacturer to break away. Not sure how well this would work with a full sized gopro, but it works great for my GoPro Session.

    Radiator fan issue

    Thanks for the input. Indeed it was related to the headlight connector. That connector has no real teeth locking it in place. I zip-tied the connector together and working five now

    When trail riding with your kids...

    On known trails, I keep them in front so I can give feedback and watch technique. If unknown or challenging, I ride in front.

    Radiator fan issue

    Checked voltage at fan connector at the harness and its dead. Voltage at connector for headlight is live. I guess next step is you check continuity back to the stator and see where the problem lies

    Radiator fan issue

    Discovered that the fan isn't coming on. I bypassed the thermostat (jumped the leads) and still no joy. Pulled the fan assembly and attached to a battery and it's working fine. Checked all the connectors on the wiring harness. What's my next step? Thank you. P.S it's a '18 Beta Evo 250R

    Vortex back order

    I think I mistook you for someone else. What's the name if your business? Sorry.

    Vortex back order

    Does that also include my 350 exc-f vortex going out tomorrow? Thank you (glen crawford)
  15. I was looking for the same for my 350 EXC-F, and although a bit more spendy, I elected to buy the Motominded dash for $70. Comes with plug and play harness from the headlight (so should be no parasitic draw, and includes 10 amp inline fuse), and also solves a couple other issues (relocates the key and flasher for better visibility/accessibility, adds double USB and accessory switch). Although not 100% sure, it dries appear that the double USB also has a voltmeter). Awaiting delivery. I'll update once received and installed. https://www.motominded.com/products/moto-dash
