Mine had an electrical hissy fit, no reason, no rhyme. A boot in the bum and the promise of $$$ fixed the immediate attitudinal directional of this much loved and cursed bike.

Also i vowed to burn the thing if it didnt comply to acceptable lectric standards... dream on..

Gave her a good pat and informed her of a possible stable mate to share the garage with. I think she has been lonely. :thumbsup: At least that's how I convinced my fiancee.

I opened the garage door this morning and realized it was too cold in today 45 degrees to ride to work, okay I was just not in the mood to ride to work in 45 degree weather so fired up my 1990 camry that has duct tape on the moon roof and leaks 1 qut of oil every 3 days to work instead. :thumbsup:

Just took apart the controls on my E turned SM handlebars to install my Oxford Heatrz heated grips and found that my Renthal handlebars have been cut down to 30". I like the stock wider bars.

Stock E bars on the way.

Thanks .... I actually cleaned off the heavy stuff before starting the project, but you make a good point, especially since the bike has less than 250 miles on it.:thumbsup:

Today I refilled the radiator after waiting over 24 hours when I did the water pump fix. I also tore down the FCR and cleaned parts awaiting float valve seat, o-ring, float valve, and extended fuel screw. Also pulled sprocket cover and case saver prior to installing a 15T sprocket that is on its way as well. In another week this bike ought to be as right as rain!

      Garrett Poucher and Skyler Howes of Garrett Offroad Racing are headed to Dakar!  These US privateers are headed there for their first times but Skyler is fresh off a victory at last week's Baja Rally, won the Sonora Rally in March and this team placed third in the Baja 1000.

      They have a fundraising link set up and could use your help.
      I raced with Garrett at Baja Rally last year and then both of them at Sonora and was honored to pit with them as well.  They're both super guys and work their assess off.  I think they both have good chances of not only finishing the 11 days of Dakar but placing well.
      They're doing some rally training events this Sat, Oct 20 in Santa Clarita, CA and then another Oct 28th in St. George Utah so if you've ever considered learning rally raid navigation, this is your chance!  It's a lot of fun too.  More info on that at the link.
