    Arm pump? Suspension questions

    m8 i have been riding my xr or the beast as the orange crew call her since 2001 when i bought her new it took about 3 mths of good long rides 8 hrs plus for me to feel comfortable on her an loosen up . i weigh about 18 stone 252 pounds so i aint litle an i have a whole lot of body for my bike to carry but what i have learnt in my journey with the mighty xr is this:= 1. eat a good meal 1/2 hr before u set out an eat often on the trail dont let ur energy levels drop ! 2.also get a camel back fill it with a sports drink an drink drink and drink somemore again this will keep u alert an ease fatigue. 3. start running when u take ur dog 4 a walk(dog optional) 1/2hrs 3 times a week do weight 2 times a week and rotate it or weight 3 times next week running 2 u get the idea ! 4. with the help o the 3 listed before have fun learn to ride ur bike and build ur confidenc slowly an u wont notice arm pump in a few months because u will have become one with ur bike an u will be waiting for ur m8s trust me this is how i did it ! 5. have fun man good luck on ur journey an enjoy the xr as it was meant to be blasting down a dirt track with the orange crew trying to catch u up ! :confused:

    Possible Clutch Issue?

    I check my clutch quite often as i ride my bike though all kinds of crap an fall off alot I have problems with the clutch also but what i find is that it just needs a oil change (every three rides about 16hrs) an the clutch adjusted(cable streches easy) what ever anyone tells u do not put synthectic oil(way to thin) in ur xr it will burn ur clutch out as it doent offer as much protection as a semi syth oil (alittle thicker) i use thumper stroke 50/20 an it works well! its very very easy to check ur plates i will find my book an quote what it says on here tommoro (if nobody helps out inbetween ) p.s I put a dirt racer clutch in my bike about a year ago with HEAVY duty clutch springs an its been ok since(because i change oil every 16 hrs i guess)

    Hi m8 , To check the oil i would kick my bike up as normal an leave her run for about 5mins on a level floor, switch her off remove dip stick wipe an then insert it (but not screw it in) sound write to u m8 ? I have done this for the last five years and it is how im comparing the oil loss. my bike has been dropped in a river,while running lost to a bog etc u name it she had it done to her with no problems she truely is my trusty steed cheers craig
