I am thinking a big cheater bar for leverage. Opinions on heat or no heat?

sub frame weight restrictions

Hey guys, are their official/unofficial understood weight limits for the rear sub-frame? When I load it down, without extra support. What is a safe amount of weight to put on the rear? I'll be riding good and hard, but not technical, much.

If I add the Manracks hog legs how much more weight can I expect to add? 20% more? Double?

37 mpg. The jetting on that bike was way too rich. I re-jetted and got it to around 43-44 mpg.

Is your bike running rich or do you just keep it WFO?

Thanks for the reply. Nice!

When I bought my bike it had a 140 Metzeler Enduro III on it. The edge of the tread was wearing/cutting into the front of the plastic chain guard. I took a knife and cut it the rest of the way off. Don't miss it one bit.
Would the tire have rubbed on the aluminum bracket or just the plastic guard?

All tires will clear the chain guard mount. Wide tires will cut in to the chain guard though.

Anyway, please let me know if you remember who the vendor is. Thanks in advance.

PS: I am told there's a whole ADV culture of giving the bird to other inmates and all that sort of stuff... is there an FAQ or primer so that I can be prepared for the expected bahavior of fellow inmates when I meet then here, on the road, and in the wild?
Sweet Cheeks. Don't know who the vendor is though...

As far as the ADV salute, be careful who you use that on.
I know of two riders(don't know if they were ADV members or not) who were chased for over thirty miles at speeds reaching 100mph by someone they gave the finger to...that they didn't know. They picked the WRONG guy to give the finger to. Hes a nice guy but you don't want to piss him off. Hes also a BIG mofo...

I'll bet that cured them of giving the salute.

That's what I figured.

I'm not too worried about loosing the couple inches of chain guard I cut off...er...the tire cut mostly off.

Here in California most the motorcycle parks I've been to have one way trails. Not sure if that is a m/c park or just forest land but that's some scarry site.

Sweet. I'm guessing I will still need new clamps to mount them to the triple?

All public land. You have to watch your speed. Stopping every once in a while and listening for bikes is always a good idea (something that I dont always do).
Funny story... The lower Eagleson Trail (in the woods on the video) is where I busted the shit out of my foot back in 1982. I was ripping along on my brand new DR250 and met a guy doing the same thing on his RM250 (going the other way, of course). We met right in the apex of a tight turn. The laws of physics being what they are... we both could not occupy the same space. The left side of my bike collided with his left fork (we almost missed each other...trail being narrow and neither of us willing to go over the edge). I broke most of the bones in my foot, bent the shifter and footpeg beyond repair. His fork slider was smashed with the fork jammed nearly fully compressed. He also went over the bars and mangled his collarbone. Needless to say, we had a loooooong ride home. Me in second gear with my heel resting on the engine case. My new friend with a broken collarbone on a stinkbug bug.
I then got to pull off my brand new riding boot when I got home to keep the ER staff from cutting it off! A buddy of mine just had a boot cut off about a month prior when he collided with another bike and got his foot impaled on the chain adjuster (the bolt sticking out the rear of the swingarm). Trauma shears on my new boots... I wasn't having any of that!
