Every once in a while one of our test machines will spring a leak at the fork seals. The majority of the time we can fix this using the Motion Pro Seal Mate. It’s a film strip thin flexible plastic device that slips under the seal and with a generous spray of Contact Cleaner you can flush out the small particles that invaded the seal and caused the leak. We never leave home with out one!
Testing off-road machines in So. Cal. during the month of August doesn’t rate that high on the hoot meter. Hot, ugly and very little traction are the highlights! We’ve been heading up to the Piute Mountains most of the summer where the temps are reasonable at the high elevations (starts at 5,000 feet and goes up to just about 8,000). Incredible terrain, painted with obstacles and enough nasty stuff to make even the gnarliest of dudes to crack a smile make it worth the long haul to get there. This week we were testing the new TM300 FI machine, more mods for our KTM 300TPI and some products for the machines and our bods.
