Riding Gear, Clothing, and Apparel / Re: Posh ear plugs
« on: June 03, 2021, 02:24:27 PM »
After experimenting over many years with many types of ear plugs I have ended up with the type AJC 500 showed a picture of without the cord -but I have also found there are many types of Silicon used some soft some not-I like the very soft ones and to aid putting them in I use a small pill case with a few layers of towel cloth soaked in mineral oil- I roll the plugs on the cloth and they slide right in-

I'm sure your right after riding your triumph 900 the 500X would feel limp-I have always described the power of the 500X  as just adequate for most situations and I'm being kind-  anyway you slice it  it is still  only 471cc

Oil change using 10w30  is not going to do that--unless the bike is over filled causing engine drag

I have those on my bike fit is good but I did upgrade to a better set of screws-in the end total height adjustment Is one inch 25mm they say one and a half but due to the rearward slop of the shield you end up with one inch 25mm

Take a look at Delkevic-quality at a mid price had one on my 2014 X I liked it-went with all stainless steel 18" with a removable baffle if I remember right -was not that high  closer to stock

Hi - I think this a manufacturer defect. You need to contact rally raid.
After delivering my rr kit they emailed me to let me know their damper rods had been machined slightly off centre Andy not to use them. They then sent me some new damper rods. This maybe you’re issue from your description?
Hope this helps.
Very good answer

can't think of any- the damper is the only thing that holds the spring straight -can't tell by the sound if the spring is rubbing on the rod or the inside of the fork leg--good luck- you'll figure it out

Don't think bent but you could check it with a straight edge-take a close look at the threads in the end this might be drilled wrong at a angle--how about this- screw the rod in hand tight than turn it in the tube and see if it turns straight or has a elliptical wobble
