Yes they are necessary, they keep the case lined up perfect, if you are super desperate to go for a ride you could probably get away with it, but I would certainly be ordering a new one. I'm presuming the other pin is still there so that helps.

Yep air filters, I hate them, easy to do its just the fact you have to do them every single time you ride.

Yeah definitely looks like a case locator pin. It's a fair bet that was sitting under your gear selector arm, hence why you could only shift up.

Sorry but those stupid bearing retainers are one of the dumbest ideas ever, the bloody bearings arnt going anywhere, all they needed was spacers, once the wheel is on they're not going anywhere. This is a classic case of complicating something that's ... more »

Added reply in a thread How do the pros get their tires to keep spinning so easily? 10/22/2019 8:54 PM

Your front should spin freely unless your brakes are dragging, and I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure the pro's don't use O ring or x ring chains on the rear they drag to much, non O ring chains have very little drag that's why the rears spin freely ... more »

I may be in the minority here but I don't mind RC I think he does an alright job, he may not be technically perfect but who gives a shit, it is what it is.

What you have circled there is not where your coupler plugs into, your coupler plugs into the white plug with the black tape around it. The white plug with the tape around it is just a cover, unplug it from that cover and plug you coupler into that plug, ... more »

Shock horror, your 4 Armstrong doesn't work? As others have said throw it in the garbage. Just relax, release the death grip on your bars and use thinner grips.

Funny that no one has said they use 4arm strong, especially after it was so heavily endorsed by all these Pro's. Shock horror that it seems not many fell for that snake oil product.

I have zero problem with changing the mapping, if that map is available pre loaded on to your tuner. It's was the word "custom" I found interesting, if your dealer can load a custom TP map on there, then it's all good.

I like Keefers pods, but i do believe there may be a bit of bias in there. Example: 2018 450 shoot out they said they were keeping the bikes stock, wouldn't even put a different front tyre on the RMZ, which they all agreed would make the bike better. ... more »
