I really look forward to the day that a few extra HP, a different fork oil, 2mm more airspace or 2 clicks on the compression will give me the extra edge to beat the the girl in front of me...

Kenny,

You either got really big balls to be taking on a race like that or... you're really stupid. I'll chose option 1.

Another quick question. i put LED's on today and had the 4 way flasher thing happen. so i cut the wire going into the dash for the light. "easier than taking it all apart" But i really like having the indicator to remind me i left the blinker on. any suggestions on what to do?

This is what SPUD posted when i did my LED changeover . Im thinking about doin this myself but even with the light I forget that its on so it doesnt really bother me I just push my blinker alot.

Here's the way you wire the diodes into the circuit.



The Kuryakyn installation instructions are available at the following link.

Mine ain't near as pretty as Spuds :) I had some of that quick steel stuff that you mix like play-do, clean both surfaces good ( a little brake cleaner or carb cleaner works great), press the play-do steel on the back of the guard evenly, press guard on case where you want it. Give it an hour or two and call it good

I wold consider it, but it would block air flow to my oil cooler. Other than that, looks like a neat idea.

Fox had air shocks in the 70s.

So you guys out west. You post all of these great pix. Do you have to stay on the dirt roads or can you go up the side of a mountain if you want to ? It sounds like out there you cant ride somewhere unless someone says you can. Most places Ive ridden in the east you can unless someone says you cant.

I don't know about everywhere, but there are certain areas that are travel restricted. This means no offroad travel. There are designated areas usually where you can ride whereever you want.

Most of the time I like to practice tread lightly and stay on designated paths (even if it is a cow path).

For the most part where I live in California (not sure about the desert or barren mountains) you are asked/highly encouraged to ride only on the roads or trails. I guess this is fine since I don't have the skill to ride over fallen redwoods. A five diameter fir I can handle fine, but anything bigger than that and I'm toast The OHV areas around my house are highly managed, almost like a ski area. Trails are marked including for difficulty and certain areas are blocked off to keep people out(they weren't when I was young) and they close if they get too much rain.

I'm thinking of using red rtv silicone

I used RTV and aluminum pop rivets to hold this RedNeck home brew case saver on. There is plenty of room between stator and cover for pop rivet head. I think the RTV silicone is a better choice than JB Weld because the silicone provides a cushion between the case and saver to absorb impacts.

The KLR with me didn't make it, but I won't say who cause he's a mod. That was probably my 6th time on Mosquito, #10-12 on Black Bear.
Weston Pass to make a loop, then Mt Bross is good to combine with Mosquito, you can ride to over 14kft. Other than to say BTDT Brown's and Breakneck passes aren't worth the trouble.

Almost all our snow has melted.
