If you look on the back, Rotella is JASO MA certified. Some weights are not (for instance, you'll find it 15W-40 but not 10W-30 in the dino variety), but I'm pretty sure everything is the same except...

I took a pair of bolt cutters to the peg on the left side (since I'll never have a passenger on this bike). Try that.

In my neverending quest to find my ideal GPS unit, I have arrived at the Garmin 64 series. Anyone have any complaints about these (other than the sucky topo maps)?

Are there any mufflers that aren't too much louder than stock, weigh less, and have an USFS-approved spark arrestor?

Don't think I'd want to go with the KTM now knowing that the turning radius is larger. The WR has an even shorter wheelbase than the CRF, assuming it can turn slightly tighter.
