I am planning on doing the same at some point as well but have not gotten around to it yet. Maybe at the next oil change.
Its the angle of the picture. It is deflected out the side like the left side

Just to double check- 87 will be hot then when I apply power to 85 - I will now have power at 30. should 86 be ground ?

Went to the Wolfman Store

Drove up to Longmont and the Wolfman store to meet Dusty and pick up the Expedition Dry saddle bags and duffel I'd ordered.

Bike's tanks are dry in prep for installing my Safari tanks, so me and the pooch took the Mini (with the top down, of course... she LOVES that)















Dusty... it was awesome meeting you in person and I'm looking forward to riding with you on the 2012 Dinosaur Run on Memorial Day weekend!

Definitely bringing some good tequila

I get the feeling you've got some personal attachment to it? Sorry... didn't see it (was too busy looking at the all the eye candy and chatting with Dusty). I'll make a point to check it out next time... got the feeling one trip up there won't be enough; especially since they're expanding their line-up with Kelty.

Anyone else in the area: a reminder that the Wolfman Open House is next weekend

Rode it in the rain. Also got my Garmin AMPS Rugged mount working properly so it charges my Montana. This was acomplished with the help of the experts in the "Layin' down tracks" section here!

Super Enduro with Super Bling

Hello All.

The Super Enduro has been down for maintenance for a while since the clumsy mechanic (me) tore one of the oil return lines...

So today I had all the parts together, and fixed the oil lines...

But while I was at it, I also had some new functional Bling from CJ Designs...


I installed CJ's Clear Clutch Cover.
It's easy...

Just three simple steps.

Step one:


Step 2:


Step 2.5:


Step 3:


Finished Result:

Thanks CJ for an awesome product.
No more worrying about leaking water pumps, or clutch oil jets...

Plus it's just damned cool to see all the spinning parts.

Q~

Titanium and I'd say the window is in the 1/8'' range as a wild guess. I know it's tough as hell.

The original aluminum ones were pretty worn out and these Ti ones should be good for the life of the bike.


Going tubeless! Have seen first hand what a PITA it is to change a tire out on the trail.

Something I came up with to break that bead off that rim. And in the background a new rack for camping!

G'day Tatsubon, are you going tubeless front & rear?

Cheers Rich

Hi RIch,

No just the rear tire kit was enough for me.
The front are prone to snake bites and the tube is way much easier to change on a 21".
Rears are such a PITA with that deep bead seat. You have to push it in at least 1-1/4 deep to unseat it.
And trust me I know first hand how tough it was to use the side stand on the trail.

Well the big day will be this weekend when I have that kit put on.
Instructions say that its best to quickly mount the tire on and inflate to form the tape into the divots.

That's the Aluminum Face 1/8" thick. (TI is also 1/8" thick)

1/4" Poly behind that. - looks much thinner when everything is put together.

Hi Cleefurd,

Will post my drawings for the wheel spacers and update what I had to modify on the bead breaker.
When I find the time, I'll post a new thread with all my DIY project drawings.
