Nice to have you on friend.

Good little mod is to cut a small square out of a rubber car mat and screw it onto the plastic flap that sits just infront of the rear shocker.

It stops all the crap off the rear wheel getting onto the shock, very easy to do and it saves a lot of cleaning.

regards
Roy

Hi Roy, i used a bit of inner tube from an old 4.00x10 wheel, it even follows the contours of the tyre

That reminds me

Just a thought about the crap-flap; motocross bike shops can sell you a cheap one that is made for the job - more flexible than a car mat but less flexible than an inner tube (most ones anyway!).
They come supplied with a thin metal strip which helps with fixing them and they can be used to protect the shocker, or as a fenda extender.

I had the mat so I cut it and tried it, worked fine.

I bought a mud flap from a motocross shop to fit on the front as an extenda fenda. It looked cool but the tyre just chewed it up.

My way worked better and so I will cut a bit more out of the old car mat and make a front mudflap.

Hi Suncasin, answers to your questions....
1/look on the left hand side of the engine for it's serial no, the 1st 2 digits are letters the second should be the cc /model no, eg EN500 this is how mine looks donating it's a 500cc engine.....:confused1:
2/look on the left side of engine again (below the rear brake lever) you should see a little round window, with the bike uprite ( may need an asistant) check that the oil level is between the two horizontal lines maked on it....
I hope that helps
TDMalcolm
