I was wondering if it's necessary to remove the front callipers as per the Clymer Manual. At the moment I have the axle bolt unscrewed and the calliper still attached. Not sure of the best way to remove the axle, whether to put a something in the left side axle and punch the bolt out or if I should remove the calliper before attempting that.

Are either of you running larger jets than stock ? what are your carb/air filter setups? what are your elevations?

If your sure it's steam (doesn't smell like something is burning) maybe you shouldn't have turned it off ,the water was evaporating and being carried away by the air passing over the motor ,UNTIL you stopped.It could be the leads for the battery tender (they should have a tight fitting cap on the end when not in use)  ,but any positive wire touching the frame or motor could blow a fuse.(is the wiring stock ? or have you made changes?)

When riding one morning, I noticed steam coming out of the engine so I turned it off - then was immediately unable to turn it back on again. Lights wouldn't come on either.

We checked the battery (load tested fine) and rectifier (tested consistent) and finally figured out it was a blown 20 amp fuse. After replacing it, the lights work and the bike turns on.

But now I'm worried about what actually cause the fuse to blow and that it might happen again.

I left it out in the rain the night before and figured the steaming engine was just water burning off. Maybe the water got in elsewhere, like the battery tender connector, and shorted it?

Anyone have any insight?

Nope, the muffler on REX is a R&D test muffler made by Cone Engineering that I picked up 10 years ago, or perhaps a bit more.

Every flip-up helmet sacrifice some safety for convenience. I'm good with just having a visor to open.

I have not heard of  anyone wearing out their rubber floor mat shims.  This modification  has only been around for 4 years or so.
