I see things like the V-Mar Suspension Upgrade, Fender Spacers, V-Mar & Jitsie Brake Pedal options.

Not sure I will do any upgrading but would love to hear what others have done or like and why?
I have some billet parts, brake pedal and snail adjusters, Mitani side stand, slow turn trottle, different shock linkage, shorter levers, carbon fiber inner~back fender, front fender is raised up, 9 tooth counter shaft sprocket and a HRC 260 kit. The bike came with all the parts. I like every thing except the snail adjers, don't have enough adjustment. I haven't rode a stock one enough to see what difference the 260 kit makes.

The brake pedal is shorter and more tucked in. forgot there are titanium foot pegs also. I put a O ring chain and a sa[sparky] on the bike when I got it . All the other stuff was put on by the PO.





I also have Hebo fork tanks on my trials bikes

Jacks Cycles has kill switches. Work great

I like the thought of the Renthal Fatbars, not sure the best place to get them, and looks like I would need upgraded clamps as well?
I tied mine in with the regular switch. Now both work. Works nice IMO.

Does anyone have a Mitani muffler on their 4RT that they could measure for me?
I have a aftermarket muffler (WES) on mine and am wondering if the Mitani cover will fit.

I need the diameter top to bottom, diameter side to side, and length.

Question Just wondering...

Where I understand the point and principal of a Mappable ECU. Unless your doing something like the S3 280 kit is there a benefit at all for someone at the early stage of intermediate to do anything like this?

Maybe its a bit over the top unless your riding the higher classes or upgrading displacement?

Looking for opinions thoughts, etc.

FYI: I am not planing on getting one, more just wondering if anyone has and if so what they liked/disliked about it, how hard to work with things like that...

Thanks!

I don't have one on mine, but I have ridden one with one. It is just like my Berg. It is really nice in extreme conditions. REALLY slippery or really good traction. In mud it is really nice to be able to run a nice soft curve. On grippy rock it is nice to be able to take advantage of the grip.

In the middle it is not as noticeable.

That's about all I have.

I see...

That makes sense, didn't consider a setting for mud v's Dry.

Well at this point I have a lot more things on the get list that are much lower cost level to get before I start considering this one but it could move to the possible future list... we will see.

Thanks for the info!

while fixing a fork seal leak today I discovered some part interchanges I wanted to share.

The 39mm Showa fork shares both the oil seal and upper bushing with all sportsers made since 87. The seals Lewisport sent me were an All Balls 55-113.

After I got the old seal out I saw that the upper bushing needed to be replaced. I found a bushing at my local HD dealer part number 45461-87. Only $5.50 too!! Now I can ride this week

Anyone else have issues with your rear brake? It seems like mine is always spongy and possibly leaking fluid before the m/c. Today I found the reservoir empty for the 3rd time in 18months. Tomorrow I'm going try to back bleed the system from the caliper.

That is some leak you have there. I would check for cracks in the reservoir, as well as seals between the reservoir and the master. Keep an eye out for the M/S seals as well. Good luck!

Not sure if this is relevant, but I found that the hose from the master cylinder to the reservoir on my '08 was collapsing under suction and causing the brake to intermittently stick and other odd symptoms. Replacing this line improved my brake feel and performance dramatically.

Good call on back bleeding. I found bleeding with a syringe from the caliper up to the reservoir the only way to get all of the air out.

Cheers!

Well I got the rear brake bled. We will see how long it keeps. I would highly suggest to anyone needed to do the same to invest in a 60cc cathidor tip syringe to pressure bleed the system. I picked one up at the local farm supply co-op for $1.95 It was pretty easy and straight forward.

I removed the reservoir and stuck the syringe into the reservoir hose and pushed the fluid thru the system. I them kept pressure on the syringe and cracked each banjo bolt one and a time to purge any trapped air. I then re-installed the reservoir and pushed fluid from the caliper back up the system to remove any air in the reservoir line. Now the brake feels better than it ever has. I don't know if I'll be able to get the pedal position as low as I'd like it, but maybe I can retrain myself to move my foot.

4rt Sprockets

Bought me an 80 hr 2005 and am loving this bike. Any idea where to find a larger rear sprocket, say 47-48 tooth?

Not near Ok, but I got mine from Don (montesa importer), who I would highly recommend:
