Went climbing this weekend. It was the first time riding this bike since June.

I was having detonation issues last time out and cut the head to try eliminate the issue (on pump) It may have helped a bit but by the 3rd hill I was pinging again. I switched to 50/50 94/100LL and it stopped.

The decomp was sticking partially open (from the cable setup) It looks like I need to rethink the routing and attachment.

Jetting was off, rich pilot, lean needle (diameter) made a really rough transition at low throttle openings. The DGN does not work on my bike.

The kicker is killing my foot. 90% of the time I slam the top of my foot into the peg. i machined up a spare spline/pivot to accept the ktm kicker, but w/o the decomp there is no way you are kicking it over. a gen5 crf450 kicker was suggested as a possible option, I'll have to look into it more.
