Try using two rim locks on opposite sides of the rear rim. I did that and only had to add about 35 grams of weight to balance out...

Run a Tubliss in the rear and run 8-10# and you will be golden.

HD tube in the front.

More than 15# in the front tire and it starts to pound you to death on rocks.

Jousting

Are there restrictions to the length or type material of the lances one uses on the joust track at Natural Chimneys?

But seriously....

Alcohol
A) No person shall consume or possess an
open or previously opened container
containing any alcoholic beverage, or be
under the influence of an alcoholic beverage
while at any public parks and
recreation facility.
B) No person shall consume, possess or be
under the influence of any controlled
substance, as defined by the Code of
Virginia, while in public parks and recreation
facility.

Are these rules enforced?!? If so, I may have a camp spot available for sub-lease.

So glad I made a practice run and installed a new front tire before the S-500. My Husky front axle nut was seized and required special attention to remove. No way I could have ever removed it trail side. Husky front axles are a hollow tube with a stop on one side and a countersunk plug threaded into the other.



Twisted my OEM tool kit 12mm hex key




I had to break out the big guns.

You know about this, right?


Motosportz sells them. (I used to own a TE610.)

Thanks JustRon, I found these cool front axle nuts exist once I began searching for answers as to why mine was stuck. I need to order one up this AM.
