It's an ACCT, and it's an 04. Never did pop that out, I guess I should!

Exactly why I use the Raptor petcock and shut it off each night after use............. Nothing says Viton won't fail over time also though so I would not trust it totally either. Ethanol is nasty stuff.

It only occurred to me today, I couldn't help but wonder if your bikes are OK in the armour dept, I.E. Engine cases and Radiators?
The cases are sorted out with easily fitted CFC / TT (Thumper Talk) guards,and the latter with Unabiker rad guards.
Both of these have come highly recommended , and both are of great quality to which I have no doubt that should the worst happen they will perform as they are supposed to.
Both have the potential to delay or stop you in your travels, so I thought it worth a mention.
Thanks mark, we have the CFCs for the engine cases. and the CCM comes with a stock radiator protector it's not great but it will stop a stone being flung up of the road and I've collided with a rock while trail riding in wales and it's done its job.

In addition Gabe at Zen Overland (www.zenoverland.com) fabricated a protector for a sideways impact on the radiator as we thought the radiator was a little exposed.

I agree. When I had the fcr on I never turned my fuel valve off... I did replace the o ring once cause it was leaking tho. That was a long time ago. But the fcr has the overflow tube. I wonder how hard it would be to add one into a bsr float bowl. For now I just have a Vinton o ring on there and turn the fuel off to be safe.

If I could find a cheap or near free bsr I'd try to drill a hole in the float bowl and stick and tube in it.

Hi numbers, no problems, the old bike is running well, just interested for future reference. Cheers for the heads up on the Toppeak digital tyre guage, works a treat.

You may have already done that but not sure from the looking at the pictures.

80/100-21

Could you guys tell me if I am ok with a 2.75x21 front tire or should I be running a 3.00-21?
my manual says 80/100-21.

Belive that both will work, but I prefer the 3.00 x 21 or 3.25

If you want to put a DOT tire on it you are pretty much stuck with a 90/90 X21. A 3.00 is very similar in circ. They come with an 80/100 but that circ varies a lot depending on whether an E or S type tire. The Deathwings are tiny in circ. Either way your speedo/odo combo will be off about 10% anyway(optimistic).

Not really they have variety out there of dot approved tire of different sizes 80/100-21 and 90/100-21. like this one : Pirelli MXMH provide with both sizes
or this one: Pirelli MXH
They are both DOT. Also Kenda Parker DT have them DOT in both sizes (80/100-21 & 90/100-21) the 90/100-21 is a bad ass tire (Kenda Parker) it worked great in mud, sand or loose gravel.
