  1. Fork seal Q's

    All of them! Seriously the experience in my riding group has not been positive with aftermarket seals. There may be good ones out there but I haven't found them. I have heard good things about Synergy seals (http://www.synergyseals.com). KTM is very proud of their seals:) I used OEM '08 Yamaha WR seals in my '07 KTM and had great results. Haven't done the seals in the '14 yet so I don't know if the Yamaha seals fit the new bikes.
  2. Just got a call from my BIL. He has the dreaded broken/seized chain adjuster bolt on the kids CRF150. He's not real mechanically inclined so looking for a local (he lives in Murrieta) shop that can do the repair. Any recommendations?
  3. Garmin Montana 680

    Probably overkill but it works well. I have about 2500 miles logged on the setup with 0 issues so far - knock on wood - cause I'm headed to Utah for a 5 day dual sport ride in a few weeks.
  4. Garmin Montana 680

    My variation.. Montana mounted on a plate that is mounted on isolators screwed into a HDB top clamp.
  5. KTM Clutch Damper Replacement

    I haven't done tis yet on my bike. How many miles on yours Dave?
  6. The key is they must still have a valid 49 states "On Road" emissions sticker. Without that the 7500 mile does not apply and it cannot be registered in CA. No side x side has an On Road emission sticker and CA does not recognize an AZ side x side plate. You will get a ticket driving it on the road here.
  7. WTB: Garmin Montana

    I haven't had any trouble but good to know about West Marine.
  8. WTB: Garmin Montana

    Hi Dave - I'm doing great. The Montana has a new home this evening at Goofy Footer's house. As for the harness I solder the leads with shrink tube over each wire and then shrink tube over the entire splice area as well. Lately I've been using some shrink tube I got from Willy's that has heat activated adhesive on the inner diameter. The stuff is tough. Never been a big fan of crimp lugs though I have been known to use them on occasion. Also Willy's has 16ga SAE connectors which also cuts down on the bulk a bit. BTW - I ordered a 276CX to replace the Montana in the RZR. Still have my other Montana for the bike.

    I've got a 650T I'd be willing to part with. It's in excellent condition and always had a screen protector on it so no scratches on the screen. It does have the camera and pre-loaded Topo100K plus I also have City Nav on a card in it. I'll throw in an AMP mount wired with a 2 pin SAE connector. $275
  10. Garmin Software on a Mac ?

  11. Camacho's is open - fyi

    Great to hear. Camacho's is a great midday stop if your out wandering the Yuha. We've even just ridden the canal road from Superstition for a beer and a taco. Thanks for posting this up.
  12. Is Camacho's still open? I was there last season and they were talking about retiring and that the kids didn't want to take it over. Love that place!
  13. Biker Hauler Question

    This is a rack I built for the motorhome. I have two receivers mounted at the frame rails. I also have receivers mounted on my Xterra so I can transfer the rack to it as well. 2x2 tube stringers. The bike tray bolts to them. Solid as a rock. The center tube is a hitch extension so I can tow the Xterra behind.The whole thing bolts together so the heaviest single piece is maybe 15 - 20#. Takes about 5 minutes to put it on.
  14. Biker Hauler Question

    Nicely done! Have you ever been hassled by the popo about it? Years ago my FIL got a ticket for blocking the headlights with a similar setup. Maybe just a cop having a bad day.
  15. I use one on my trailer. It will hold the bike but the bike will still tend to tilt side to side going around corners, etc. I don't think the bike would come loose but I use straps with it just because it makes me a little nervous. The straps aren't really compressing the forks but rather just proving some additional safety margin. If I had it to do over again I'm not sure I'd bother with the bike shoe.
