The crank is bad for spreading on the early SXs, not the best design compounded by high revs. It can be addressed in a few ways, if the hours are up there, 200+ I'd check the crank for run out. You...

Nice trail, if that was around here quads would've pouched it and it'd be wide enough to drive a jeep on. You're right she's a good rider, smooth!

I know you don't want to hear this but ES stators are junk, they were junk on the Honda XRs and didn't get any better with their KTM offerings. Not that I think this is the issue but it definitely...

The factory float level is a little high, especially if your kickstand is bent outward a little and the bike leans more. I ran mine 1mm less than the factory setting which also seems to cure another...

Steve, I wouldn't worry about it. Yeah there's a chance of getting nailed but I think it's pretty remote unless some dirt bikers recently pissed off the LEO.

IMO a 500cc with that kind of weight might be acceptable, not a 250 though. At 375lbs it's not like you're getting a good off-road capability and at 26hp you're not getting good distance capability....

910 miles/day of mostly road on a WRR or anything but a liter bike borders on sadistic self abuse in my book. Go on ya for hanging in there and making the ride.

Saw the controlled burns when I went north Saturday. I just drove back south on US550 today, I'm pretty sure this one isn't a controlled burn, it's looks big.

Probably a fire left from a camper.

Ground the body of the reg/rect, that's it, not the batt (-) or anything else, the DC system needs a place to shunt the excess voltage.

I'd suggest leaving the factory wiring alone, run any dc grounds back to the battery (-), bolt the reg itself to something metal or bolt a wire to the reg housing and ground it to the frame.
