And the motorcycle parking is WAY better!

I still love it that I can get 19-20 mpg out of this thing when I'm driving all freeway down to SoCal to visit the in-laws though:

19 to 20 mpg really? What kind of speeds do you drive to get that? I keep my cars and trucks for along time. I have a 99 ford 150 with 198,000 miles. Ill probably keep it for another 4 to 5 years till I pay off my house. I am planning to get a full size diesel something next. I would be ok with something that will get me 20 mpg. Hell I am hoping I get buried in my next truck.

Thanks
You will still get free shipping if your order totals $99. Order some sprockets, a drive chain, a tire, oil filters, air filter oil, et cetera, and you can still get free shipping.

P.S. I like your signature.

Yes, I remember several people installed the Tusk Clutch Kit, and liked it. However, I don't remember who they are. If you search this thread you can probably find their reports.

I just installed one in Sept. I test it out in Moab Utah with a 1000 mile trip in 6 days. It works as well as the oem one to me. I also have a Tusk clutch kit on a 1996 cr250. That has worked well for 4 years now.

Question How much gain with a stage 1 hotcam?

Hey guys, how much of a difference will an XR's only stage one hotcam make on an otherwise internally stock motor?
The specs are-
INTAKE LIFT: 8.8 mm
INTAKE DURATION: 258
EXHAUST LIFT: 8.8mm
EXHAUST DURATION: 258
I'm not sure what the stock lift/duration is....just wondering if the hotcam would make enough of a diff to be worth it money and labor wise? And how much low end, if any, would I give up?
Thanks in advance for any feedback

I had one for the last... ~2k hard miles that I got from CW. I'm interested to hear how the lifters faired over the last little bit.

I only removed the chain guide slider. I kept the chain guide installed in order to prevent objects getting jammed between the rear sprocket and the drive chain. I also trimmed the chain guide a little.



As I said, I haven't had any problems with the chain departing the rear sprocket. However, I do think my chain slipper roller helps to hold the drive chain higher than the stock chain slipper.

I am sure that we could put together an interesting weekend of fire road riding + hiking/climbing. Something tells me that WBedient has an arsenal, which would add some interesting flavor to a ride.

PD
Yes, I think that we definetly need to involve guns in this trip. Maybe we could fire at pre-set targets from our bikes as we ride to the trailhead....

The sad thing is that if I dragged alvincullumyork up there, we would only have the one XRL to share between us ...... and I don't fancy riding bitch....

My last trip from Oregon down to Riverside, CA I was driving 70mph pretty much the whole way with the cruise on and I got 19mpg. Around town I get around 15.

It has intake done, 3" downpipe, 4" exhaust, 160cc injectors (stock is 90cc), chip from Power Hungry Performance, and gauges to keep an eye on everything. VERY fun to drive, and great mileage if you keep your foot out of it. One reason for the good mileage is that it weighs a lot less than the newer body style Fords.
