My hat is off to you sir!
It is a great thing you do leading a group of Girl Scouts on a trail ride ike that.

Serriously though, won't you spend almost as much changing gears in a XRL as you would buying a good used 250 or 350 Enduro bike?
I mean you are not just going to split the cases and replace the gears. You will end up spending $1000 or more on the engine rebuild!
For a few dollars more you can have a much more capable bike to handle this kind of off road.

Those pictures of you were at "the steps" right? That place sounds very intimidating to me. Not sure I want to attempt that one. This was a little deal from last year on Webster/Red Cone pass. I was a little puckered and never really right after this little episode!

Darned things are not cheap though!
The Rekluse EXP seems like the one to have. As you go up their food chain you pretty much are "Hinson-ing" your clutch. It's pretty reasonable at $399. I'm going to eventually get one for my new smoker. In a week I'm going to get a chance to try one out on my buddy's KTM300.

The reason I ask is because back when I did the CRF USD forks on my bike I referred to my daughters CRF450r manual for the oil spec and went with what it said. Some months ago I got another set of forks (can't have enough spares ya know) and did a full rebuild, bushings and seals. This time I compared service manuals between the CRF-R and my son's CRF-X and the X spec is about 100cc less oil.


So what says the peanut gallery??
I'll play. I use 10W oil (raises and steepens the damping curve) and I use 375cc of oil. That's the cheap way of making a fork for a 240lb. bike work for a 330+ lbs. The bike is a touch under sprung, though, but has a very nice damping curve for the riding I'm doing.

Nice pucker factor and save at the end... I think the crash was a good plan. When he moved for you he made the back end harder to get around from what I could tell.

I'm not a fan of steep loose drop offs like that...

I had to drop the bike quickly so I wouldn't get poop on the seat.

Wow... these three look like the forest roads around here, Jota!

I'm seeing third gear... maybe second in the last one for not seeing what's beyond the top

Thanks. I can do one of two things. Either change the oil in the forks that are on the bike now to the X spec or swap over to the spare overhauled 08 forks. Decisions, decisions...

Are the 08's conventional or USD's?
