    2008 610 Throtle Cable

    Well, I put in a new throtte cable on my 610. All went well until I put the two cable casing halves together on the handle bars. The hand grip does not spring back when it is turned and it is hard to turn. I lubed the cable before I put it on. It seems to work okay until the final step. Thanks...

    Lithium Battery

    Just put a Shorai Lithium Battery in my 530 KTM. What a world of difference. The Bike was hard to start cold at the best of times. If the battery was low, forget it. With a fully charged battery, if you didn't start it on the first try, you could just end up cranking it over until the...

    Sent in my Arai Helmet in to Arai USA for a new chin strap, bad news.

    The chin strap on my 2008 XD3 Arai helmet was fraying and becoming shorter and shorter. I paid 600 dollars for it, so it really pissed me off. I went to the Arai web site and filled out the stuff and got an email. I made a phone and got the phone number of the warehouse where they do the...
