Once your on the road... nothing else will matter anyway... it all gets blown behind you. :uhhuh

No... he was trying on my helmet to determine what size to get for himself... wanker.
Then he got down on his knees, in front of me, with my wife standing near by... Then we went to the Vancouver SuperCross.

Yeah well I never did like the wide space between first and second on that bike, and I heard they changed that in 97, so if I'm gonna open it up I might as well try to get a closer 1st to 2nd and drop in a taller 5th.

I'm gonna have to do some serious parts ficheing. As it is I blew a fork seal on the old marzochi forks on a 1700 mile ride last weekend so the old thing needs a bit of work.

BTW, I'm picking up my slightly used 625sxc next week, anyone know the best setup going to keep the fork seals alive on those 43 USD forks? Those forks look a might vulnerable down there.

1700 miles in a weekend? what's your ass made of?!?

anyways, creeper had a good sounding trick for fork seals: something about packing the shroud? with grease so you have a first line of defense. he will probably wade in here with the details.

Asside from getting the Motion Pro bleeder valves, nothin' fancy.

Pull down the dust seals (after you get the lip down a bit, push into the side firmly with a screwdriver and twist to pull the dust seals... the lip is not reinforced and will just tear)... clean the fork seals by wipping with a business card or piece of 35mm film (I like a nice white business card, so you can see when it comes back clean), clean and pack the dust seals with a medium body waterproof grease (BelRay is good) and reassemble.
Work the forks a few times and wipe off the excess grease... Mine haven't leaked in going on a year now I think.

G'night folks

Well it was 3 days and I used an airhawk pad which is all that made it possible, otherwise I would be in a wheelchair.

I'll have to try that seal trick, I keep seeing somethign called a seal saver that looks like foam pipe insulation or something, are those any good? Seems they might trap dirt and scratch up the fork legs to me.

the neoprene fork covers are pretty popular in europe I hear. not sure about here or what are the ups and downs.

Primary 30:81
so.... does that mean you combine the gear ratios with the primary ratio? for example..

1) 5th 22-18=1.22:1
2) primary = 30-81=0.37
3) an input to 5th of 6000rpm (* 22/18) gives you 7320rpm out...
4) then input to the primary is 7320rpm (* 30/81) and output to the counter shaft sprocket is 2708 rpm?
5) take the 2708 rpm and multiply with desired ratio to get wheel rpm.
6) divide by inches/rev for one wheel rotation... and we've got speed

the only thing here i don't understand is the primary ratio. is that on the output shaft of the transmission? it applies to all gears then.?
