I ran NoToil for 5 years all through out the Kamloops summer. Sometimes so dusty that you can't be within a couple hundred meters of another person because you can't see! I have been in races that were so dusty that you had to follow the dude with the tail light and trust his lines. Complete whiteout (beige-out?). You finish the race and your filter looks like a block of dark chocolate.
I have never used grease on my filter with NoToil. Never a spec of dust past my filter. This silt has such fine particulate too.
It doesn't hurt to use grease, but you don't need to. NoToil is the best stuff and its vegetable based, non toxic.
Ya me too. Lived in Kamloops for half of my life. Thats why i would never skip the grease. I cant say if you need to, only that i would never risk it considering the brown flower fog you speak of. I know that haze all too well. I have only used no toil for about the last 5 years. I dont ride a ton. I still would not skip it.
Im not even arguing your wrong. It is your bike after all. I would not want to hear Geoff at GP moto scream at me if i skipped the grease. he may chase me around the shop with a wrench.
that deserves a visual. Holy shit how tall are you?
I have been using Cool Aide
Which seems to work well.
These things are often if you are racing the bike, not saying don't do it, but The Janitor, here had 350 hours on his ktm 200 before he did the top end and it looked new. The second one was done at 580 hours and bike was sold in awesome shape with 690 hours on it…kims ktm 200 has 200 hours on it and it is perfect with no engine stuff…what really knock valves out is banging off the limiter on starts in races. Trail riding is quite easy on bikes, don't open it up unless you need to as i bet the piston looks new, check valves every once and a while. Changing your oil and filter and having spare air filters and changing them often is a good practise. I don't use the grease, the oil from no toil provides adequate seal.
Are you talking about the power valves on the 200'??? Im pretty sure that they are talking about head valves on thumpers. No toil has their own grease they recomend. i would not go with out a grease coat interfacing the filter and the housing. But thats just my opinion. i dont see why you would skip the grease.
this is why i keep a large axe strapped to the outside of my backpack. just make like you're reaching for it and the annoying vehicle driver will stop and give you the "i'm sorry i was such a pinhead" wave.
Yup. That will sort it out.
2 of the 3 finalists are from Calgary. Coincidence? Mind your self on those mean streets Calgarians. Do we know who this person from the parking video is?
I guess any time the government insists that public players are told to shut the fuck up or else…i get suspicious if i should trust what is really going on and what is really at stake. I mean, we are talking about registering dirt bikes not criminal convictions. And oh ya, there is $$$ at stake for the government entity. Goodbye transparency and trust as far as i am concerned. Even if teh website is not up to date, it seems there is no difference as far as the whole story is concerned. I was reluctantly acceptent of the whole process until that point. Hopefully my trust will be earned. :stupid:
WTF? Some of this looks pretty dodgey….

this is cool. a bike that lies between yzf and wr.As the only Japanese manufacture to still make a two stroke, i hope they have some thing cooking there too.
