IMS 4.7 gallon tank arrived today.

Can not wait to install it, but have chores tomorrow that keep me from starting. Will have to find the install link to make it go quick. Now just to fix the crappy headlight, thinking linx or one of those 8 inch off road lights. Any opinions?

I tried this and found out that I still needed earplugs. YMMV. I am planning on putting the FMF Q4 back on.

Tubes

Now that I've got my tire situation figured out help me figure out tubes. I'm going to run MT21 90/90-21 front and 120/80-18 rears.

Will all of these tube sizes below work?

They are all 2.7-3mm thick tubes so heavier than stock but not as heavy as the UHD tubes.

Bridgestone Heavy Duty Tube - Front 80/100-21
Michelin Heavy Duty Inner Tube - 90/90-21

Bridgestone Heavy Duty Tube - Rear 110/100-18
Michelin Heavy Duty Inner Tube - 4.00-18

Speaking of fat bars & mounts - I have one of those Easton EXP fat bars with mounts that I bought before I even bought the bike. They were around $40, so I thought I'd buy first ask questions later. Well, they're 1 & 3/8" and I needed to go with a more standard bar.

Anyway, if anyone wants these, you can have them for the shipping, which could easily be around $30. First PM takes.

I know nothing about the IMS but here's my thoughts, if the fitting is leaking either it isn't tight enough, cross threaded, or seeing if it's brass it could have been over-torqued and warped...


try and get some pics up for us.

Hey Skierd,
Is that bike back together yet?

A friend of mind just flew up your way to watch his son cross the finish line riding a bicycle on the Iditarod with the Bobsleders.

OK I can here you all now.................... Bicycles? He's making that up!

True!



And we call ourselves "Adventure Riders"........... Humbled me.

So I think when I dropped my bike the other day it made my handlebars crooked. The handlebars aren't bent, they just aren't aligned with the wheel now. What's the easiest way to straighten the wheel back up?

Loosen up your triple tree clamps, hold front wheel between you legs, looking back at the bike, and wiggle the bars to center it all up. Tighten up the clamps.

Looks compact.

I'm guessing you don't use your mirror to see behind you.
