    Rising to the occasion?

    Hi Laser, Let me know if you ever have a need for those risers - ya know if scrap aluminum prices go sky high. The 08 is great. Never a break down. My 15 y/o likes it too.

    Rising to the occasion?

    I may be that friend and I still have them - didn't get the helicoil in there but tried them out (even thogh theiy were a bit loose due to the stripped clamp threads). Bottom line was It set me a bit to far back but did relieve a cricked neck a bit. I'm 5'10' tho. PM me with your address and I'll send them out.

    KTMTalk website down?

    I've been banned since 2007. So I went in the back door and never ever stirred the pot again. I hope this post doesn't get my other me banned. I like it there, but it took a while to get used to.
  5. Probably a repost. The gopro fisheye lens makes it look super steep. http://www.viddler.com/explore/thechive/videos/1068/
  6. Trying to loosen it. Darn thing is aluminum and soft and I broke it off flush ! Now for the proper application of heat, a drill, may be an ez-out. Then after I screw that up and break the ez-out it's off to find a machinist, or a new brake caliper. That is all PS. Make sure your nipples are lubed.
  7. And the answer is - I think so. I grabbed a 6.0 x 1.0 pitch nipple from the bin at the auto parts store and it worked well. A little long, but it worked great. FYI the reverse method by argclh6670 did the trick !
  8. Got it - I'm going with the reverse drill method. THis is the AJP rear on a 2007 gas gas 250pro If anybody reads this - Do you now iw any old blled nipple with the same width and threads will work? (I think it's either an M10 or M6 x 1.0) But more specifically, are the seat bevel and such pretty much universal?

    Merry Christmas...Santa upgraded his rig....

    The only way to not break it !
  10. I need shoulder and deltoid protection for the trees. I do not want the roost guard as it impedes air flow during the summer. Can anybody point me to a product? Thanks

    Base gasket thickness

    remove your old one, measure thickness, order a new one of that size.
  12. Muffler can. If you run a restrictive muffler like a turbine core it can cause the exuast temp to drop and the unburnt oil will condense before exit.

    Hole in the Wall, Lake Powell

    Do you mean Hall's Crossing? Do you also mean Hole in the Rock? Nope I haven't tried to ride that. But I thought one had to approach hole in the rock from the west side overland.

    Does Premix oil go Bad?

    It's not milk. It's fine - forever. Did you know that the pre-mix found in King Tut's tomb was still good? This is a little known fact because most claims talk about the wheat seed that still germinated. Yes even then, 2-strokes were discriminated against.

    should i offer him a grand?

    Wow - I make my top offer on the phone all the time, with the understanding that it can go down. I don't waste gas money otherwise.

    07 300 XCW crank

    Looks like rust killed your bearings. I bought an 07 200 that was that way (PO took it for a swim and didn't flush). I replaced the bearings. Regarding the LS bearing, have your crank builder remove the old inner race and install the new one. Andrew is good and so is mrcrankshaft.com

    Stock Squish

    I just noticed you are running a 125 sorry. Are asking what it's set at from the factory or what you can set it to safely (without detonation). If the latter I think 1mm is near the conservative cutoff. I believe the smaller diameter pistons run smaller squish values - certainly the chainsaw guys run below 1mm. Perhaps someone can dig up an equation.

    Stock Squish

    Stock squish is usually on the high side - about 1.6mm in my experience. Usually with a 0.75 base gasket. I generally set the squish to around 1.3 mm at near sea level to run pump gas. I feel this is conservative. Also, this is with a stock (uncut) head.

    Where to buy mineral oil for GG clutch

    CHeck the KTM forums. KTM uses the Magura hydralic clutch - mineral oil only. I think I saw a bunch of posts where guys were using fork oil with no problem. Just don't use brake fluid.

    Cheap Spark Arrestor

    Many Thanks I ordered 2 of the 32 mm ID ones (49022N) for my Gg pro because I lost my previous $100 item due to a self tapping screw vibrating loose. $13.55 each from the local cummins dealer, with a 45 day wait.

    1977 KE 125 project

    THanks - the bore is good - maybe 2 thou off 56.5 mm - I found a whole piston set in the UK for 45 bucks shipped. Ebay

    1977 KE 125 project

    Just bought a complete non-running KE125, 4K miles. Strong spark, clean tank, compression of about 80 psi. Doesn't start even with gas in the spark plug hole. So I took the head off and the bore measures 56.5mm (bore should be 56mm, so it must be first over) and the piston measures 55.65mm with a ring gap of 2.5mm - the piston is still the original ! I swear these old bike projects are always a surprise. Does anyone know what the piston - bore clearance is supposed to be? Until then, I'll be scouting for a .5mm over piston/ring set that won't cost $100.
  23. I've been looking for it since the end of Feb. when they advertised the letters would go out. Am I the only one?
  24. 4 -5 PM is just for the main event stuff, and that's when I hit the parking lot. I don't go all day. The scalpers price may be cheaper closer to the main event. If I was driving in from out of town, I would want to make damn sure I get tickets, so I wouldn't use the scalpers.
