TL125 Progress

On Sunday, made great progress on the TL125. Finished the valve adjustment, checked ignition timing (it was spot on and points looked new), bolted seat and tank on, and finished rear fender install. Looking good!

Later in the afternoon, started the clutch replacement (to repair for slippage).

Draining oil;

There's always one bleeping screw that won't budge! Someone had been here before me and rounded out one of the oil filter screws, tried the impact, no go, then used a chisel to cut a straight groove, and with a little luck got @##%^&*^$ screw out!

The offending hardware;

Tried to take the crank end nut off using a drift, but with the angle required could not build enough force, so I've ordered the proper spanner socket. Until that arrives, will move on to the SL350.

On other notes, we had a fantastic trail ride a few weeks ago and are just about ready to head out for the D100. The TTR250 got a few last minute adjustments and tweeks this weekend and the motor home is as ready as we can make it. Looking forward to getting out & riding in the high desert!
