  1. Chances are your rear fender won't survive a fall. Almost every one in our club who riders Evos has broken their rear fender. They are made of just too hard of plastic. Bosi makes a flexible rear replacement, which is also about $100, but then you'll have to buy new stickers if you want it to match. I bought one, but since I put in a break away hinge on the original fender, my rear fender has survived two falls that simply broke the zip ties. Works like a champ, looks good and can save you forking out $100+ for a new fender. Some guys may get lucky and not break one, but most won't. I chose to be a little proactive.
  2. I put a hinge in mine before I broke it. Works great and has popped off twice only breaking two zip ties. Replaced the zip ties and I was in business again. I have bought a Bosi fender mod but have not put it on yet as it doesn't have any of the striping to match and my hinged fender works fine in a fall, and regardless of what everyone says, if you ride, sooner or later everyone falls. If you scroll down on the link here, you can see pics of how I did mine.
  3. Oh, and Maxima 75 wt lite transmission fluid in the tranny...since you asked.
  4. Rode my o8 SY250R for nine years before I traded up this spring. Was probably my second favorite bike next to my 94 KRoo. We'll see how the new Evo stands up. Ran Amzoil Dominator at 70-80:1 in the Scorpa. 70-80:1 as It's almost impossible to be perfectly accurate all the time. Rode it in hundreds of practices and a meet every month, with half a dozen hard trail rides across the Five Miles of Hell in Utah. Always ran great and never had the head off. Bike ran as good the day I sold it as it did new. If you run more than 70:1 you're just gumming it up.
  5. I love it. Means parts for my 2105 Evo will be available for years to come!
  6. I run Maxima 75 wt lite Transmission Fluid in my 2015 Evo 300. Used it in my Scorpa and Gas Gases too and have always had great clutch and shifting. Plus I can get it at my local bike shop.
  7. Update to my Evo rear fender post. Fell in an easy sand section on the first loop in the meet a couple of weeks ago. Even though it was an easy section, the rear fender still smacked the rocks, but my fender modification worked like a charm. Snapped two of the three zip ties, as it was designed to do, but no damage to the fender. Replaced the two zip ties and away I went. My son in law wasn't so lucky during our Moab trip, but then he hadn't modified his rear fender. It's modified now though and is held together with duct tape!
  8. I'm wondering if the problem a lot of guys are having with their Evo side stands is that they don't want to stay down once put down, or that the bike easily rolls off the side stand?. This is an easy fix. Just get to the side stand pivot bolt under the bike, and remove the allen head screw from the pivot bolt head. That allen head screw catches on the spring and makes the side stand flip up as soon as any weight is taken off the bike and also makes it hard to put down with just your boot. Removing the allen screw will allow you to put it down with your boot and it'll stay down till you put it up.
  9. I live in the states, but I have gotten stuff from these guys in the UK and had it shipped , and they have treated me pretty good.
  10. Couldn't figure out how to use zip ties to replace the screws like I had on previous bikes, so trying to be proactive, I bit the bullet and cut the fender so I could remount it with breakable zip ties (and hopefully not break the fender). I got a rear fender from an 85 CR85 Honda, $19 at RM MC/ATV ($9 on Ebay) to use for a brace. The rear portion of the CR fender is almost a perfect fit for the underside of the Evo fender, it's thick tuff stuff and the color is perfect. So I cut about four inches off the rear of the CR fender, notched it so it would fit up flush against the Evo fender/airbox flange, and put two screws in it through the bike side of the fender and three break point zip ties through the rear side to hold it on. Sorry, the pics aren't great, but you should get the idea.
  11. That is a REALLY broad request. Often it's not the big changes that are the most meaningful, but the small ones that continually improve a particular model. Like most of us, you'll probably have to do a lot of your own research. You can find the different models here: is a good place to look for info on a particular bike.
  12. It'll come out if you remove the top shock bolt so you can articulate the swing arm all the way. If you can, undo the brake hose at the master cylinder. If you can't, you need to undo the brake caliper at the disc so there is no tension on the brake line. There is not much extra length in the hose and if you drop the swing arm all the way down without taking the tension off the fear brake line it will pull the line out of the banjo fitting on the master cylinder forcing you to buy a new rear brake hose. I learned the hard way.
  13. Here ya go. They have brackets and springs too.
  14. I'm pretty sure it's a 250 cc 1998 Beta Techno.
  15. So you're telling me my front fender is going to be toast too?? LOL!!
