High flow exhaust canister = after market slip on (eg. T4 ProCircuit), or HRC Tip on stock exhaust, FMF slip on

Large Diameter Header & Exhaust canister = after market FULL exhaust, from the head to the tip. This could also be a T4, since you can get just the slip on or the full exhaust.

To my knowledge, no.

The only externally adjustable carb that i'm aware of is the Edelbrock Quicksilver carb. Which there is one for sale on the front page of the Parts section right now.

Nevada is way easier than Utah, except Vegas and Reno areas. You can pretty much do it over the phone.

Wondering if anyone has had this happen to them or have any ideas about it. Thanks.
Check that your overflow hose is connected to the valve. Might have shot out on top of the rad.

The hose should connect there and run down to your overflow by your left foot.

Axle doesn't turn and shouldn't wear. Likely your bearings are shot. Replace them.

Grasp your wheel at the top and force it back and forth. If it moves your bearings are done and both should be replaced.

Don't buy "cheap" bearings. It's not worth it. Try to find quality brand name, sealed bearings (SKF, FAG, etc). Depending on what your ride, we often pack the bearings full of grease to prevent water penetration. Still only last a season-1.5 season.

Why would this info help you at all?

Just ride it and do proper maintenance. Not much you can do other then that AND you get it ride it an enjoy it!

Change oil, replace worn parts, twist the throttle.

Easy fix! do a FULL rebuild on the engine, replace every bearing, seal and bushing. Install a Vapor, and then start a 000000

Shibby is right, just enjoy the thing until parts start failing, replace, and return to enjoying it.

If you are really that worried, you could always just pull the head, check the valves and seats, inspect cam and upper valve train wear, pull the jug off, and check for small and large end bearing wear, cylinder wear. This is obviously not a total R&R job, but its also mostly free and will give you a very good idea of the condition your engine is in.

In the meantime, do all of the maintenance, lube points, and clean the oil screens.

I like that idea haha, I'm not complaining or really worried just saying it would be nice to know.

Question Swingarm slap?


Let me start by stating I did my google search, as not to get my ass chewed by Garthe.I spent a good part of Sunday doing some year-end maintenance, valves,oil change,cable lube and rear shock adjustment.The reason for the shock work is I've been noticing a knocking coming from that area under acceleration on rough terrain, in the pegs. I replaced the linkage bushings and bearings along with heavier shock spring (11.5kgm- fat ass) and shock bushings about 8 months ago. Seems to be some vertical slop at the swing arm pivot point when on a stand with wheel off the ground, The shock has about 130lbs of charge by my guage and is a bit soft still. Just did a 500 mile Utah/Nevada Pony Express trip and some Moab single track two weeks ago with no noticable issues other than the knocking. Is a bit of play normal? Any advice would be great. Thanks, Jim
