rear rack with the wolfman side racks

On the purchase list is the wolfman side racks and was looking at a decent rear rack. I did see where the OEM rack works but may require a little more work for installing. I like the moose racing rear rack and Immix also has a nice one. Has anyone tried to use either of these with the Wolfman's. Thanks!

Got a replacement battery for $65 at AutoZone and all is well again. Didn't realize you could drain the battery so much that a jump or push start wouldn't get it going again. Glad I figured this out in the driveway and not in the woods somewhere.

I put the AIS removal kit on my bike probably 4 years ago, I just noticed today that the rubber plug that goes into the air box where the old AIS hose used to connect is all dry rotted and cracked , what is a good common item to use as that plug ?

I left a short bit of hose, plugged it with 1" of aluminum rod I had laying around and sealed it with a small stainless hose clamp.

See plastic cap and clamps in several places on the page, including the picture at the top:

So I screwed up.

I came across a snag that may potentially kill my dual sport ride this weekend with a friend of mine on with him his 08 WR250R (our first ride riding the WR's together)

I buggered up the steel wool gasket that goes between the header and exhaust. Its completely unusable. I got this bright idea to RTV the hell out of the thing and simply crank down on the clamp mechanism and pray for the best. Unfortunately it leaks air like mad and didn't work.

I'm in a bit of a bind. With the abscense of a gasket and with RTV being not enough, what can I use? Will exhaust tape work? :(

Any other better ideas?

Did you try this?

That's what I used on my FMF Pipe to Powerbomb, I don't remember no steel wool.

Yes, used the red high temp RTV (Same stuff) and it doesn't expand. I simply can't get it on thick enough. The gap without the gasket is way too big. Stock exhaust.

+1, just did the AIS removal on my WR and used a rubber chair-leg cap from Ace Hardware. Fit like a glove.

Oil Change Procedure

2009 WR250X

So, I'm checking the owners manual for oil capacity and noticed a "burping" procedure mentioned to check for proper oil pressure. The check valve is on the rear of the cylinder on the left side.

Is this part of the normal oil change procedure or a separate procedure just to check oil pressure?

It is listed in oil change procedure per manual. I always do it as it only takes an extra min, however I know others that don't.

I'd bet most people don't do it.
