  4. Let’s talk coolant

    General talk
    Straight distilled water has long been known to be a more efficient way to remove heat from an engine. And is used in emergencies when freezing temps is not a concern. The main issue with coolant additives is rust prevention and water pump and seal lubrications when freezing is out of...

  10. First service and oil nozzle for clutch lubrication...

    Super Duke
    My 15 SDR had no hole in the oil jet. It was solid brass. Replaced it with one with a hole in it. Felt no different. I check it every oil change and it’s clogged. I don’t remove anything to access it except it’s own little cover. I clean it out with a numbered dremel tool drill...
  11. Changing out shifter relay lever

    Super Duke
    Yup. Bent mine when I got knocked down at a light. It bolts onto a splined shaft against the engine case, at the bearing and to the linkage. Should pop off with a good tug.
  12. SDR oil change and re-use of oil filter

    Super Duke
    That’s true. From memory I think the oil filter cover bolts are 6nm and the screens are 13nm. So that’s pretty low torque to begin with. Anti seize and a lower torque value has worked for me. Also. Transmission fluid and acetone mixed 50/50 applied over a few days to a stuck fastener...

    Offroad Racing
    There is one from a few years ago called - erzberg, the iron giant strikes back and its incredible to watch what the pro guys can do.
  14. SDR oil change and re-use of oil filter

    Super Duke
    I treat the oil filter bolts and screen bolts very carefully. I put anti seize on them and torque 15% less nm then recommended. Never had a leak or stuck fastener.

    Super Duke
    I loved the factory road smart sport smart 2’s. Paid out the a$$ for a second one. But there gone now and I’m a big fan of q3’s. And will get the q4 when my last q3 is shot. I bought a few when they were on clearance.

  18. Really Close Call on Video

    General talk
    Close to the yellow is lane 1. No issue there as far as I’m concerned. Other guy panicked and target fixated. I’d be lying if I said I never did that when starting out and not counting steering. Glad it all worked out.
  19. Keeping OEM Equip?

    Super Duke
    I keep everything OEM. wrapped up and put in boxes in the attic. Might need it some day. Or let it go when I sell it. I had the stock muffler from my Ram 1500 up there for 5 years. Woke up one day last year, started the truck and was completely over the loud exhaust. Had it switched...
