    I think I smoked the slush box

    Probably. I had a bunch of major things coming up soon though. I was on stock injectors and pump.
  3. Truck is an 04.5 dodge with a cummins. I left the house with my toyhauler and the trans kept upshifting too high. Even in tow mode. Trans only hit 195 degrees. Hit a steep hill really slow and it felt like it was slipping really bad. Turned around to head home and it was sitting pretty eraticly. It has plenty of fluid. SMelled like very hot trans fluid. Unhooked trailer and went for beer. No issues at all. I have never toasted a trans but dang that felt weird. The trans would shift so eraticly I was not going to hit the highway with it. Fluid smelled a little funky and was bubbly and brown. It has been awhile since I changed fluid and filter. Does this sound like a typical trans failure. Truck has a very light tune of a superchips and boost cooler. Thanks for any input. Sent from my SM-G920V using ThumperTalk mobile app

    I think no. I do miss the mpg and power but not sure it's worth 10k. I do miss my old truck.

    I was doing 60mph most the time. Saw 4500 rpm. It did sort of hold gears going down hill. I would say it actually pulled better than My cummins but less than half the mileage.

    My th is 22' and fairly loaded. I would guess about 10 to 12k lbs. I got 7mpg on the way home. I got 14mpg with my cummins. It pulled really well. Could really not even tell it was there.

    Yamaha launching an ebike

    What would be cool if it has a gasoline (2t) generator to power the electric motor. It would be eco friendly (electric motor) and cool with the smoker smell! Sent from my SM-G920V using ThumperTalk mobile app

    New KX 250 for dirtbeater

    I have been around here for awhile and just picked a brand new to me KX 250. The prev owner said is an 01 I am not sure yet. I picked it up for 800 American. It does not run. It at leasts needs a top end, brake rebuild, carb clean, bolt kit (Only 2 zip ties!) Tires, seat cover and fork rebuild. I hope that is it. I am super excited to make this a super woods bike and have nothing but great things about it. I am not sure what all shows up in my Sig but my ktm 250 smoker was awesome and I was less than impressed with the yz450. I will be on this section much looking up info and asking questions. Ride on!

    New KX 250 for dirtbeater

    I took the front brake lever and adjusted it away from the bars. This seemed to help. I will have to take it for a ride tomorrow and see. Sent from my SM-G920V using ThumperTalk mobile app

    New KX 250 for dirtbeater

    I should have taken pics before I installed. They were 38$ for the pair on Amazon. Fit was good. They work. Front brake is still weak. I am ok with the back brake. I may just do the Honda swap. Sent from my SM-G920V using ThumperTalk mobile app

    2 stroke question????

    I almost forgot to put it in. I don't remember my KTM having one. It looked and felt almost hollow? Not sure though. Can you buy them in like a ten pack? Sent from my SM-G920V using ThumperTalk mobile app

    New KX 250 for dirtbeater

    Well she is not much to look at. Seems to run pretty good. I am not sure if the brakes have issues or just not as good as what I am use to. I got some new levers showing up soon. They are cheap Amazon but look cool. Sent from my SM-G920V using ThumperTalk mobile app
