    Overheating help gas boiling

    Just an FYI/IMO... I you are seeing steam after installing Evans it is almost certain that you did not completely void the cooling system of standard water based coolant before adding the Evans. Evans offers a flush fluid to aid in removing as much water as possible. In my case usually necessary to drain, flush and by the 2nd exchange of Evans no steaming. As has been pointed out Evans is a waterless coolant which has a very high boiling point (if no water is in the system), I will not reduce operating temps over water based coolants. In fact you may see slightly higher temps as pure water is most efficient. That said I use Evans extensively as it best addresses my concerns and issues. Bruce

    Maybe drill the shifter out and Helicoil/Time Sert other end, or use nut? Bruce

    CA Compliant Question

    With the sticker you are good to go. They will not even look at the equipment just the sticker and the frame & motor numbers. Bruce

    E-start issue(s) on my 2017 500 RR-S

    Interesting, my first thought would have been that it's time for a new battery. Sounds like at 12.8-13.2 volts it is charging properly and if pushing the button results in a click under the seat, the button is OK. Bruce

    Eastern Kern County Onyx Ranch SVRA

    IMO Photo is likely misleading. The Oynx Ranch was the checkerboard BLM/Private lands that were accessed from Jawbone. The purchase was an effort to consolidate the ownership/jurisdiction/management of the area. Unfortuatly the State OHMVR Division did the buying and it's looking like they want to take away management of the Jawbone area from BLM. Some of you most likely have ridden some of this in the past thinking it was a part of Jawbone/Dove Springs. As Jawbone and Dove Springs have no legal singletrack hopefully OHMVR will see the need and develop/reopen some singletrack routes. Pay at the booth riding...... Bruce

    baja pictures

    "Prerunning" Were you entered in the race or just checking it out with others? Would suck to lose a rider just days before the race.

    Fuel mapping on a 2018 390s

    It's a 2018, have Frank's in Bellevue (or the he shop where he bought the bike) look at it under warranty. The 390's run very well (and strong) stock. Once you start messing with it the shop might be reluctant to proceed as a warranty repair. Bruce

    Beta Fork Diaries

    Cannon Racecraft makes the springs that Beta sells (possibly Rt as well), can custom wind anything you want and sells direct to public for less $. Bruce

    Dirtbike acceleration problems

    Not enough information but...... If it ran/worked fine before sitting awhile could be a blocked or partially blocked pilot jet in the carb. Bruce
