Hibernation Update....

Recommended Posts

It was 40 and sunny out today:applause: only about 2 to 3 feet of snow to melt and a bunch of salt and sand to wash off the roads and we can play again, The light is at the end of the tunnel....

Hair dryer won't do it, I'm calling in a napalm strike for the front yard!!

These are the size of the chunks I'm chopping off the side of my shop.

I'd rather bring it down on my terms. One of my neighbors had the side of his garage cave in from snow sliding of the roof.

Here in Maine we have 3 feet left to go as well. 6 fresh inches today didn't help matters at all. We've got old barns and garages dropping like flies. On a brighter note, I can see out my garage windows for the first time in 2 months.

Yeah, this has been the winter from hell!! That chunk I'm standing on was hanging off the end of the roof. Had to cut it down before it did real damage to the wall of the shop.

Got the response :confused: I wanted!!

i don't know about anyone else, but as far as i can see global warming has no effect on WI.

Safe to assume you're not totally against global warming? :confused:

Hope you get to ride one of these days.

I have a friend from Idaho; she bailed out & moved to Florida for the winter. Looks like she made the right choice! She's coming by FAR Manor to visit on a 17-state swing, ending up in Colorado where she'll try to put down roots....

You know, I'm not totally against the whole winter / snow thing... Worked in Palm Springs for 20 years before retiring and moving to the westcentral mountains of Idaho. We enjoy the different seasons. But enough is enough!! Just to show what we are experiencing, last year at this time there was 15 inches of snow in town. This year there is 45. Total snow fall last year was 132 inches, this year 200 inches!! These numbers are as of March 18 and published in our local weekly newspaper "The Star News". Woke up to 4 more inches in the driveway this morning!! Global Warming my :confused: !!

      Hey all, 
      I'm looking at buying a 2004 Suzuki DRZ400EK or at least I think it's an EK according to Vin lookup websites, but it does not appear to have a kickstarter. I was told the bike was owned by a motorcycle dealer and that it has a current green sticker, and a California license plate but has not been registered for the streets since 2011. I want this as a dual sport but am not clear if the fact that it already has a plate means I am good to register it or if maybe they took away the ability to register it after it was plated, California loves to do that kind of stuff. Since the bike was owned by a dealer I would think they were up on the latest regulations in California, but who knows. Can anyone add any insight as to what I should look for on the bike itself like the carburetor, model numbers etc? Or do I just try my luck at the DMV?

      Hi,
      I have a 2003 DRZ (actually a KLX400) and the head tube bearings are shot.  I ordered a new set to install but I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations on other parts I should replace while I have the front disassembled.  I was thinking about new rubber fork protectors, but are there other things that wear out on the DRZ front ends that you can only get to when disassambled?
      I also broke off a replacement key that I got for the steering lock.  I must have been made of cheap pot-metal.  Should I just remove the whole lock mechanism?
      Any tips or tricks for getting the old bearings out and the new ones in would be welcome!
      Thanks!

      Hey Guys,
      I recently bought a 2003 DRZ400S and thought it would be a good idea to check the valves clearance etc . I timed the engine on TDC with the magneto mark aligned as per the manual but I find the cam timing slightly odd. The arrows pointing upward are on the 1st and 15th pin as they should but with the magneto timing mark aligned they are not perfectly straight. Same goes for the arrows that should be parallel to the cylinder head casing. Is this normal or should they be absolutely perfect ?
