Well i have both, so i guess it might justify getting a pair. But i'd like to hear from somebody who has a bought them first. I'm a bit sceptical myself.

Sidi makes an awesome pair of boots. I have never tried their Rain boot but they are a company from Italy.

Ya, i agree, the SIDI crossfires are a top end boot. And i have to give them credit for testing out a new market where other boot makers have obviously avoided. I think if they nailed it with the rain boot, it could become wildly popular with the woods/trail riding crowd. Very good idea.

I know they are way to rich for my check book. I payed 149.00 for my boots, that was still costly.

Maybe we could get Lawny to buy us each a pair so we could test them for him :laugh:

Sounds like a good plan to me.:wink:

The one thing I don't know if I would like is it is an offroad boot vs a MX boot. The offroad boots tend to have soles that look like hiking boots. I personally don't like that. They bite too much on the foot pegs. I like MX boots that have a more smooth sole.

My feet get wet, almost every time I go riding, since we usually end up at the river at some point. In the summer, it is kind of nice to have wet feet. But if your feet get wet in the dead of winter, it kind of sucks. I might have to check those out, my old Tech 3's are getting a little worn after 5 years, I will probably be buying new boots by next winter, those might be the ones.

      My Dad's 03 Manual Vinson has milky oil. He changed oil and ran it everyday for a week being sure to keep it running for an hour each time. Fresh oil is getting milky again..
      Thinking it's the water pump seal. Has anyone here successfully changed the seal or even replaced the whole pump assembly?

      Does a US made grease gun fit Metric zerk fittings, or do I need a conversion to fit them?  Thanks in advance.

      Ok, so I bought this scream of a deal the other day - a 94 King Quad 300 for $40.00.  It's been sitting outside with no carburetor on it for about a year.  Its rusty, missing some parts, wiring is all cut up and spliced etc.  No seat, no racks but the plastic is all there minus the headlight housing.  Anyway, who can pass up a $40.00 quad right?  I get it home and looked at the sight glass for oil level, it's about 1/2 oil and 1/2 water.  I drain it, refill it and turn the motor by hand (recoil starter is missing) and it turns over just fine.  I worked on the wiring for about an hour and got it to turn over with the electric starter and got enough of it sorted out to get a spark.  Did a quick compression test, 70 lbs.  Wet test bumped it up to 90.  Ok, so rings and cylinder washed out with water for a year, not too surprised.  I thought 'what the hell' and sprayed some starting fluid in it and it ran for about 2 seconds - enough to show  it's got life.  Since then the compression has gotten worse, I can't get enough pressure to activate the carb diaphragm, therefore no fuel pump either.  The compression is now around 60.
        Anyway, my question is....is it worth it to try to get this thing going?  I tore the top end down today and the cam and one of the rockers is pretty worn.  I figured a top end job would be about $100 or so, depending on the condition of the cylinder but I'll probably have to put a cam and rockers in it as well.  Doing some research on ebay I figure I'll have to spend about $500-$700 to make the whole machine right again.  Much less just to make it run and use as-is but I won't really like it until it's right.  I don't mind doing the work, I actually enjoy it but I'm concerned about what all that water did to the rest of the internals, I can't really test it all out until I can make it run.
      I know it's a basket case but I'm not into it much at all, even if I do the top end and find something else wrong I'm still not out much.  I'm leaning toward ordering the top end parts and going from there unless you can convince me otherwise - any way to check the rest of the internals without tearing it down?  I plan on flushing the oil cooler before I do another oil change, I've drained it twice now and it gets milky almost immediately just turning the starter - I suspect the oil cooler is polluted badly.
       
      I'll get some pictures today if anyone want to see them.
       
      thanks!
