Testing is carried out with oil temps above what you're showing here. I wouldnt be worried until 270+. If you saw some of the durability cycles things run, you'd think your drive cycle was similar to a grams heading to get groceries for the week after ... more »

Added reply in a thread Moto related-ish camper/generator question 7/20/2020 4:16 AM

Does your generator have a 30 amp camper style plug or are you using an adaptor chord and plugging it into a 20 outlet house style plug? If you end up needing to buy one to run what you need, I would highly recommend the Westinghouse I bought 2 years ... more »

Just record the session on the monitor itself. With the polar app. Start and stop from phone and when you’ hit stop it’ll ask you if you want to save the data. Kinda sucks tho starting it and then waiting in staging before a moto.

Because Yamaha has had quite the track record of "quality" over the past few years. I'd venture to say they have had more blunders lately than kawasaki. To the OP, the 19+ engine is just noisy. Its the valve train.

good choice on the DLC shaft - the TiNi wears super fast on shock shafts in my experience. Bike looks sweet, and Tom is a standup guy with amazing service and communication. Other engine builders should take a class from him on professionalism!

I have the 21.5 with stock linkage. I like them, I had 21.5 on my 16-18 model as well with 49mm showa kit spring forks. I noticed I do have to make clicker changes between stock 23 and ride 21.5. Probably different loading of the fork.

I traded in my 2016 kx450 in october 2019. I always sell out right, and I always buy out of state to avoid sales tax. In this instance I used a local dealer, and even after paying the difference in sales tax, I came out 400$ ahead from what my asking ... more »

I like the smell - both before its burnt and after if you arent concerned witha ny kind of "performance" , something like VP110 or sunoco 110 will be lighter on your wallet, and is a lot more "stable" / less "finicky" than an oxygenated fuel.

Spend the extra few dollars and buy u4.4. Both T4 and U4.4 require a remap, but Atleast you’ll gain a decent amount with U4. T4 is lean on a pump fuel map contrary to vital and VP, stoich #’s don’t lie. I’m going back to pump gas, U4 is banned in NY ... more »
