Oops.........

This beast is a distraction as of late, pardon me while I gush. 110 hp, 95 mph in 4th gear, still pulling hard, 2 gears to go. It's a really sweet ride.

We'll be up in Hayden (west of Steamboat Springs) for a bit, on our way to Utah, somewhere around the 22nd of Sept. If I remember, you are in Boulder, so it would be a bit of a hike for you. BUT, I'm buying.

Tomorrow I am replacing the cam carrier bearings regardless of what I find in there. and I will for sure check the bushings. Slacker Larryboy has a JOB, so maybe while I wait for him to finish with that crap tomorrow I may disassemble the damned thing in MotoXotica's parking lot

You can just come over, my family is used to dirty bikers showing up and working on bikes.




You're almost high class.

Just show up and the kid will let you in, she's threatening to stow away so she can go to Seattle.

oil pump re-assembly

The dumbass in my garage lastnight took apart the oil pump assembly on my 610. I'm pretty sure he can't get it back together without taking the side cover back off. The loud and embarassing words coming from his mouth may have upset the deer, they may need counseling.

So does anyone know how the dots line up on the damn thing and if it is important? Any tips on reassembly?

On the plus side, replacing the outer clutch hub bushing really cut down on the slack and the first time check(after 9500 miles) on the oil screen revealed one little spec of crud. Once I get her back together she should be good to go for another 10K.

I still have the cam chain(currently 8 clicks on adjuster), valve adjust and throttle cable replacement left to do.

Those station wagons in the background are hot, I agree.

I would want to live on a street with an HOA that has a KLR clause in it though.

Thanks Spanker... I'm printing these as future reference for when I brace my sub frame (after this riding season ends). Can't wait to see what you do with the sub-sub frame too.

I tried putting it back together with the cover on one time and I couldn't do it. I had to take the cover off and assemble it from the inside with the pump cover bolted on first.
