    Knocked myself out

    I talked to Eric yesterday, and he was a hurtin unit. Fractured clavicle, torn muscles in shoulder, bruised ribs, and overall major body pain. If you remember, I had to start his bike for him before the practice lap cuz his back was hurting him so bad he couldn't kickstart. Eric apparently felt the need to keep passing out in the ER and even went into a bit of shock. Eyes rolled back, convulsions, the whole nine yards. In looking back, I do feel a touch bad about making him sit in the Jeep during the race while I got another 2 laps in. On another note, the bonehead is now out of work cux he can't throw a hammer, AND he doesn't have health insurance. Considering all the x-rays, drugs, and the fact that protocal was to call in the trauma team since it was a motorcycle accident, he's gonna be paying off that bill for a while. Hang in there Douglas, get better and we'll ride (slowly) again soon!

    Knocked myself out

    As Paul Harvey would say, "And now, the rest of the story"..... I have to say, it was a bit erie seeing Doug laying on the track, motionless in the fetal position... I didn't see the crash, but it must have just happend, cuz I saw a lady running over towards him. (By the way Doug, she was topless, so it's too bad you don't remember anything) Yeah, it shook me up a bit seeing him there, but I quickly came to my senses and realized that I had better stay on the gas and make up some time before he came to. Had he not cut the course and ran over that small girl and her puppy, he wouldn't have gotten out in front of me. Oh yeah, as for that DNF... You see, I need all the points I can get and Dougie's DNF doesn't really help my cause. So, I had a little conversation with that scorekeeper after the race and let her know that Doug did in fact finish! When she quesioned me as to why he never completed one lap, my explanation was that Doug was, well, a little special, and that he liked riding through the pretty pink gate. It took a little convincing but, I think I was able to get you 1 point Doug. I know buddy, you're welcome. While it may appear as if the motocross Gods were not looking down upon ol' Doug last Sunday, things could have been worse. He could have done some damage to that fine stroker of his. (yes,pun intended) Glad to hear you're ok man! We'll do it again next month! Oh yeah, all jokes aside, it was a tough whoops section and I'm really surprised they allowed us on that part of the kiddie track.

    Here I sit broken hearted...

    Yo Dougie - My KX starts on the first kick in those COLD Hare Scrambles you can't seem to make. Jan 20th is the next one. Think you can get your scooter started by then?

    Rampart Poker Run

    I saw a whole slew of WRs out there. Anyone have any good stories? I met up with the guy I sold my WR to and rode for a while. He sure rides it better than I ever did!
  7. Is there a pic posted anywhere of the fender stickers?
  8. Scott

    Colorado get together?

    Hey Dougie, Can you make that 15 WRs and 1 KX? What? You think that just because I sold the WR I wouldn't continue to spend half my work day reading TT? If I could only find a forum like this for the KX....

    F*****g Carb slide

    Sudco definitely sells the parts. I've bought 2 from them. They call it a vacumm release plate. Make sure you buy the seal that goes behind it!! The first one I bought, I didn't know that there was a seal for it and it broke after a few rides! ------------------ 99WR,WR timing,throttle stop removed,Uni filter,E-Series pipe,carbon air box,Pro Tapers,lights removed,YZ tank,13 tooth sprocket

    Street bike question - Help me out here.

    Oops - just reread your post Bryan stating that you didn't want a superbike style ride..

    Street bike question - Help me out here.

    What about the Suzuki TL1000 or Honda Superhawk? Duc 748 would certainly be my first choice! I think Fay Myers' still has a '98 748 in the crate for around 9k.

    99 WR for sale

    Fellas, It pains me to do this, but I'm going to the dark side. I found a 2-smoke that I couldn't resist buying. So, my 99 WR is for sale, located in Denver. It's in great shape! I have the stock WR tank, seat, shrouds with a nice Factory Effex graphics kit and seat cover. The bike does not have lights. I put on an OEM YZ tank, seat, shrouds with a schaweet One Industries/Motoworld graphics kit and seat cover. Other goodies: E-Series silencer Carbon Air box Carbon Frame gaurds Aero Bars (Pro Taper - like) Enduro skid plate 13 tooth Sunline sprocket, stock rear WR timed with stop removed Ty Davis neutral switch cover IMS steel gear shifter Brand new OEM throttle cable, Renthal grips, and Uni filter Brake snake Good tires (original front and M78 rear) Have extra fork seal New DVP needle The only problems I've had with the bike is that stupid carb slide cracking. I have a brand new slide in it now. I'm asking $4,300 hoping for a quick sale. The bike has low miles, never been raced, and has been babied since I bought it. Real nice bike, great starter! Let me know if you're interested and I'll email you a pic. -Scott ------------------ 99WR,WR timing,throttle stop removed,Uni filter,E-Series pipe,carbon air box,Pro Tapers,lights removed,YZ tank,13 tooth sprocket

    Throttle stop, remove or just trim?

    Mine is completely removed and have seen NO problem with TPS confusion or any WOT problems. I have, however, replaced my carb slide 2x! I'm not sure it was due to the stop being removed, but it would make sense if that was the culprit. ------------------ 99WR,WR timing,throttle stop removed,Uni filter,E-Series pipe,carbon air box,Pro Tapers,lights removed,YZ tank,13 tooth sprocket

    No Compression

    I have compression! I pulled the head cover off and noticed that the cams were NOT in the same position they were when I last saw them. Apparently, the chain tensioner did not open as I thought it had and the chain had some slack in it. I think it jumped the cam.. Taffy, I tried your test, but, unless I'm completely nuts, the TDC mark "I" only aligns when the piston is at the top. I never saw the "I" line up when the bamboo shoot I stuck in the spark plug hole was at the low position. I know the chain tensioner is working now and I made sure that there were 13 pins in-between the top punch marks on the cams. I also pulled off each valve cap and peeked around. I made sure the magnets were seated properly and then reinstalled. So whatever I did/re-did seems to be working. It did start, but I have yet to ride it.. Thanks again to all who responded! I really appreciate it. ------------------ 99WR,WR timing,throttle stop removed,Uni filter,E-Series pipe,carbon air box,Pro Tapers,lights removed,YZ tank,13 tooth sprocket

    No Compression

    Thanks Taffy, I'll try it and let you know. You've always pointed me in the right direction.
