    TC-W3 is just a rating for 2-cycle oil. Recommended for use in most marine engines, but can be used in all 2-cycle engines. It has to meet certain criteria in order to be rated TC-W3. I buy it by the...

    Actually, if you were to stay in a hotel rather than camp, Faribault would be a nice location to HQ from. Only about an hour from the fairgrounds, and easy access to some more scenic roads. Also...

    I too use the silicone gaskets. Also, when I had the heads updated on the RT, part of the process was a very slight surface plane of the heads which cleaned and took any warpage out. I've had zero...

    Tygon is your friend buddy. It never splits. It lasts about 5 years and then it just hardens and shrinks a little bit. Purists may scoff at the yellowish color, but it will never let you down. I...

    Glad to hear you found a problem. This doesn't preclude that the steering head bearing races might have gotten pitted from loose bearings pounding against them. Hopefully not. You probably won't miss...

    I still have the 3 lower pieces. I just decided to run without them. It helps to cool the engine and it makes oil filter changes easier. I don't think it detracts from the bikes overall appearance...

    Those are the pressures I go with as well. Front 34 and rear 36. You might find the ride to be too stiff and may have to adjust rear shocks accordingly, but handling will be good if not optimal....
