OnandOff

I put a larger tank (3.7 I think) and was unable to use a fan due to reduced clearance between the radiator and tank. Keep this in mind. I have since tried the Evans coolant and have not noticed any...

Just curious

Do the JD needles make that much of a difference over stock? I have never used them yet I find the stock set up ok since I have no comparison.
Thanks.

Another vote for Montrose

I am about half way between it and Ridgway on some decent land with views. I can leave my house and hit the trails with little to no paved road type riding.
Sounds like you have more days behind...

Ogio

Amen to all of the previous comments. I will add that there is a life time replacement on the vest with excellent customer service. One of the zippers broke and I had a new vest with in a week.

Another plus for Montrose. I live just south between Montrose and Ridgway. Best riding in the state, on and off road. Moab not too far west.

PM me for other info you may need.

Fly wheel weights

Any one using one? Had one on an older kx 250 and helped in the off road environment. Seems like it might help in the real nasty stuff.

I am taking delivery on a new V7 Racer and found a ton of info on Wildguzzi and Guzitech forums. Ride the bike for a while and do some research. Lots of good after market support out there.
