I don't think I would attemp that unless refreshments were served first, and I think I would still not do it.

Sprocket is changed and no internal mechanicals were harmed in the changing of the sprocket....

Maybe the sun will come out tomorrow and I can test it out.

How is he supposed to re-use them if he trims off the excess? I figured as a former KLRista you would surely know this.

Yea! I just got off work, thus ending my 6 weeks or terror! I have to go in at 7:00am for a few hours but am so ready to regain a normal life that involves something other than work and sleep. I love my job though, don't get me wrong.

2013, here I come! Happy New Year guys!

Happy New Year! I rode past your work and almost stopped but couldn't get in the parking lot and y'all looked so packed I wouldn't get to see you anyway...

Yea, all 4 registers had lines and we are real efficient. It's really fun but tiring at the same time. Best part is that it was a good year for us. In this economy, to have green numbers is good. Thanks to our customers and my great staff, we did just that.

I have a noob question regarding the counterbalancer on my 94dr650.. I tried to set the piston to TDC, then took the side cases off, pulled flywheel, and re-aligned the chain according to the plated links & marks on the sprockets. But I was a little off with the TDC. I have no idea how to set TDC now that the flywheel nut is off the crank. Is my only option to put the bolt back in and tighten it down so I can use it to turn the crank? I have a pic: you can see the three marks on the chain are aligned, but the key slot is not. Any help is much appreciated, thanks.

schall- You will have more luck getting an answer in either in the "Garage" or "Thumpers" sub-forum. I honestly can't tell you what's going on with that chain. Somebody might happen by who has seen the inside of a DR650 engine...

From where you are in the process, the best was to find TDC is probably to reinstall the flywheel and go from there, but I'm not familiar with the DR650 nor did I stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night.

Put it in high gear and turn the rear wheel, by hand, in the forward direction. This is much easier if the spark plug is removed.

Looking for Rides

Hey everyone, have been watching this tread and see there are a lot of riders and rides taken place around Jackosn. I have been looking to meet some people and do some Adventure type riding and backwoodsKLR said to introduce my self here. I live in the Summit area south of Jackson and would love to meet up and take some of the great rides I see y'all doing. I work 28/28 so I can ride almost anytime I'm off. Just wanted to say Hey and hope everyone has a Happy New Year.
