    Not yet. My son was born recently and it's been a chore to get away from the house. I'm going to try and get out next weekend.

    I actually have been really busy and haven't had a chance to get out yet. Bama Jam is where a few of my classmates ride. Looking to get out there hopefully tomorrow or later in the week.

    KLX Headlight Upgrade.

    Looks good. I see something similar in my bikes future, I just need to get a few other mods done first. How long do you estimate it took from start to finish?

    New owner, small problem though.

    I just ordered my JD jetting kit a couple days ago and should have everything diagnosed and fixed this weekend. Could you elaborate on the dialectic grease under the shroud? Thanks everyone for the suggestions. The old owner said it had maybe 10 hours on it so it couldn't be valves. I'm 99% sure it's a fuel system issue. MODS so far: AIS kit Crank case vent kit In the works: JD jetting kit

    Hey guys! Just picked a 2008 that was sitting in a guys garage for almost 3 years. I've changed all the fluids and serviced the bike per the owners manual. I am however having trouble getting the bike to start and believe it is a stuck float inside the carb. The spark plug is clean and fires properly. When using the electric start the bike turns over but nothing happens. Zero exhaust. What are the remedies for carb floats that have been sitting for an extended amount of time that are either stuck or clogged/gunned up from sitting? I'm trying to avoid removing the card from the bike. I'll check out the technical forums in the mean time. Glad to finally own one! Below is the picture of the bike and I cannot wait to get it out of the trails.
