In addition to the "whiskers," please notice the narrow bands of grease located at the forward end of the pulse generator.

I removed the "whiskers" and the grease from the pulse generator before I re-installed the right crankcase cover. At first I though the grease might be designed to help capture the metal "whiskers," and prevent them from infiltrating the engine. However, after consulting via PMs with another inmate, I decided the grease was just oil residue, so I removed the grease from the pulse generator.

When I rediscovered the photos posted by FatherX, the question arose once again in my mind. Is this grease supposed to belong on the pulse generator?

Spud
I still say that "grease" is basically "iron powder"

I am in the middle of a USD fork upgrade on my bike. I went with the CRF450 rear fender with Baka Design LED taillight and a CRF150 front, The CRF150 front has the channel for the wiring harness so it doesn't have to be relocated.

I was surprised to see that my stock front fender that had 2" trimmed off the front was almost exactly the same as the new CRF150 front fender.

I much prefer the Trail Tech TTO Temperature Meter to the XRs Only Oil Dipstick Thermometer, and both units cost the same.

Spud
That is a nice looking unit! The XRs Only dipstick is a POS, mine leaked after the first rain event, then the plastic lens popped off. It was a freebie, so I did not ask for a replacement. Glad the stock dipstick was saved. I like to watch oil temps on a single air cooled engine and the TTO meter looks like it is the right size as well. Let us know how you like it and where you mount it

Thank you spud!

Thank you I'm terrible at remembering those things... I think they are either the Mefo's or the Shinkos. I've got Pirellis on it now though.

I had one of those Baja designs tail lights with the LED turn signals you can put on the side, I liked how light it was and how it looked, but I got rid of it cause I was told by more than one person that they could barely see the light and couldn't really tell when I was braking except that they caught up quicker . YMMV.

funny typo though... Baka means stupid in Japanese

You can't see it well but here is my '94 with a white crf 450 rear and an enduro rear light, WPS brand I think.




I had to shorten it a lot but was able to leave the factory rear fender brace on.

CRF150F Front Fender

Here is another angle of that front fender. It came off of a 2004 CRF150F
