I think you are viewing it all wrong. Yup, the C-ship is over in the 450's, but now you can go and watch the action a bit farther back in the pack. Do you honestly think that Zack-O and Anderson are going lay up and coast? Roczen? Those guys aren't wired ... more »

IT Manager, Healthcare. Pays the bills, but Healthcare is pretty stressful with all of the diminishing reimbursements. What once was a stable industry is now a mess.

Keifer did a podcast that was sort of like this, but he bolted on the JGR kit. Basically, he said you could purchase a leftover RMZ and the JGR engine kit for close to the same amount you'd spend on most of the other bikes. The podcast focused solely ... more »

I'm in! I'm pretty sure I could line up one track for sure over in the SW side.

Wait, you guys buy a bike for it's riding traits???? I just buy the ones that look good to me! Maybe because I'm old and slow. "If you can't go fast, look fast!"

I'd pass on him. He seems to hit the ground way too often. You can't win, when you don't line up.

When did Tomac say he didn't want to go. Last I heard him say in an interview was that he wanted a bit of revenge for last year.

For the head, put it on a known flat surface. I've heard of people using glass. Use a feeler gauge and go around trying to fit it under the head. I don't know how to do it for the cylinder. If I had to check, I'd send it to someone reputable to check ... more »

Scotch brite will be fine as long as the nikasil coating is still in good shape. I don't know Husky's that much, but with some manufacturers, they have multiple cylinders and tag them like and A or B cylinder. The difference is the bore size. If yours ... more »

Added reply in a thread Keeps blowing pistons 8/12/2019 7:24 AM

Yes, it could. Every cold start does a little more damage. Eventually, it weakens a part enough to chip/break, which floats around and does more damage, leading to what you have. Sorry, I don't know the jetting specs. It's been many years since my boys ... more »

Added reply in a thread Metal in oil filter crf 8/12/2019 7:23 AM

If you can find someone reputable, rebuild the crank you have, or buy OEM. Obviously, replace the top end. Definitely do all the bearings/seals in the cases since it's apart and they may have metal in them now. Clean the transmission and clutch REALLY ... more »

Added reply in a thread Slight oily residue around cylinder head bottom gasket? 8/12/2019 6:21 AM

As Paw Paw said, swap the gasket. Make sure you torque the bolts properly, then check them again after a few hours of runtime to ensure they haven't loosened up a bit.

Added reply in a thread Keeps blowing pistons 8/12/2019 6:19 AM

There is part of your problem. Cold seizure. You need to let the bike warm up prior to putting it under load. For what it's worth, my method of warming up prior to riding is to completely idle the bike until the cylinder itself is warm to the touch, ... more »

Added reply in a thread 2017 tc 125 cylinder wear *Pic Heavy* 8/12/2019 6:15 AM

The first pic shows wear on the power valve, which means one of two things. 1) You aren't warming it up enough 2) The piston is way too tight/bore is not correct. Also check your airbox/air filter to ensure it's sealed. If you allow dirt/sand through, ... more »

With that much metal, I'd split the cases and find out where it was coming from. Better do it now when it will cost hundreds to fix and not thousands.....or whatever monetary system you use.

He should pay you to drive 45 min and take it home. What a POS. Definitely pass and find a more reputable one.

Thanks for the clarification. The WiFi makes sense. That's a hefty cost. I was just wondering because that other thread had many differing opinions.

I'm pretty sure T-Fish only stores them that way in the summer months. I think he rents a storage unit or two for winter months. He would have to verify that though.
