Geez, I'm hoping to go for a ride on Sunday on the KTM... got it back home on Monday last and am trying to get it in shape. The chain had lost the rollers off each end link... which is why it sounded like a tank track. Haven't got the new boots yet... must do.

Fitting new sprockets yesterday and the axle adjuster fell into two pieces.... so I've got a new axle on order (why can't I buy just the adjuster, Mr KTM?). Imagine if that'd happened last time I had it out... repairing a flat in the middle of nowhere, rushing for the Laos border to get there before closing. I'm sure I could have bodged it up, but that's not the point. CJ Designs sell a nice billet one, much better than the bit of cast crap that KTM fit.

I'll try for some photos of it back in Oz and on the road
A man should only do the work that is required of him. To do more is a form of greed.

Ride through Oz and Asia
