    Going to Germany

    my son did his Korea gig about two years ago. garages are hard to come by, my son lucked out and has one but it is very small, just enough room to get a bmw in. anything lifted there would be no way to fit it. but some of the houses have a basement you could use for a tool room. as you can see some of the roads in the smaller towns can get tight. malberg is about a 15 min easy drive to/from base. trier is a drive! not sure how long but guessing 45 minutes??? and it is a big town/city. Bama send me some soju LOL

    you will be out in the country and very close to the autobahn, there is very little traffic. the roads are about normal width country roads and well maintained. your truck will stick out like a sore thumb. the only pickups you see are by americans and anything lifted is a sure tip off LOL. your truck will be fine. me and my wife love this area and it reminds me of washington state. i have been to Amsterdam and that place is awesome too, would love to have a retirement condo/apartment on one of the canals. your about 3.5 hours away ; ) i suggest looking at kilburg or malberg if you would like to live in a quiet town off base. bitburg is the big city (not really all that big). a lot of the troops live in speicher but it's more Americanized and getto apartment style living LOL just got a call from my son and he said theres about 5 inches of snow right now. but they keep the road cleared. like i said before i would had loved to have had a motorcycle over there. there is a lot tourist type stuff to see and do in the area and the germans are nice people. mmmm Schnitzel and a bitburg beer, life is good !!

    oh.... to get a (military) license you need to pass a written test on the local road laws. i heard its not that tough if you study. go here and studyhttp://www.gettingaroundgermany.info/auto.htm they even have tests you can take. thats what i did before i went and felt comfortable about driving there. one suggestion is to get a gps, it will make getting around a lot easier. road signs over there SUCK they have no north/south/east/west reference so its easy to get lost LOL dont ask me how i know LOL, thank god for the gps! need more info let me know i'll share what i know and thank you for serving our country!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    kx250 REBUILD! I need help...

    i have filed mine in the past. my clutch wasnt disengaging smoothly, so i filed it smooth and it makes a big difference.

    New rings

    i wouldnt do anything to it, new rings and piston/connecting rod bearing and slap it back together, after a good cleaning of the ports of course. if your cylinder is scratched that not good news and honing wont do anything for it, re-sleeve or re-plate.

    while you have your clutch basket off take a file and file smooth the grooves on the sides where the clutch plates slides in and out. this will let your clutch plates slide freely and keep the clutches from dragging/engaging/disengaging
