    Pines Fire

    They are saying that it appears the fire was started along a trail that illegal migrants use to come from Mexico. Even though the fire had nothing to do with Off-road vehicles, somehow we will get the blame and lose another riding area.

    Broke bolt in case

    I was so mad at myself because I set the torque wrench properly, and I was working I thought this is to much torque. But the wrench did not indicate it was at the setting so I continued until snap. The wrench I have is inch pounds. It has a range of 20 - 250 inch lbs I have read the posts about the proper torque being approx 6ft lbs and also some just turn an additional 1/8 of a turn after the bolt is tight.

    Broke bolt in case

    I was able to use a small screwdriver to slowing turn it out.

    Broke bolt in case

    I need some help on what to do if a bolt breaks off in the case. I was changing the oil filter and puting the bolts back on and the little one snapped:banghead: . My torque wrench was set properly but the bolt broke and half of that little bolt is stuck in there. How do I get it out or do I have to take it to a shop?
  10. I have looked at the other information here regarding valves but I need some help. I called the dealer because I was going to have them do my first inspections but they quoted $300, so I decided I will just give it a try myself. After watching the sticky I think I can do it, but will take my time. I went to buy feeler guages but had not clue what size guage(s) to buy also I guess I will need a micrometer. Does anyone in San Diego know where to buy them. Also is there a kit that has various sizes of feeler guages? Thanks.
  11. I would agree to start by checking the battery. I had a battery that would say fully charged on the charger but had bad cells so the bike would never get enough juice to start and it would make a clicking sound.

    Couldn't be Perfect

    I took the battey to the dealer last night and they are going to replace it free. They said it was covered under the warranty.

    Couldn't be Perfect

    So after a long time thinking about it, I sold my quads and got the new 450x. A friend of my wifes works at the dealership so we got a good deal. Everything was going great, got the bike home and rode it around the neighborhood, started it twice then battery was dead. I charged the battery the night before taking it out for the first time, nothing. For a moment I thought of cancelling the trip, but said I have a kick start. It sucked....well at first. I was kickin so long that I almost sent my buddies ahead. One last kick and she fired up and it was a blast and I never regretted selling the quad. My last bike was a '99 xr400 that I sold in '01, so I can't really make a comparison but man did I feel like I was flying. Sucks the battery is dead but other than that I counldn't be happier.

    400 xc-w?

    Does anyone have any specs on the 2007 400 xc-w? The KTM site does not show this bike. Is it the same as the 2006 400 exc less lights?
