Some of us Okies are planning a mini-Dakar-like rally weekend at the Little Sahara in Western OK in February. Should be fun.

Interesting "Custom Super Rotor Puller". Looks like instead of a bolt it's a standard puller, curious how you like it.

My rotor was suck on so hard that it stripped the rotor puller I put in it and I had to do all sorts of voodoo magic to get it out (Brought it to the local KTM guy that I know ) then he put another puller in and tried it with a impact gun and stripped that one out. So I called EM and he said he has a puller for just this situation but he only loans it out so I took the offer.

Like you see its just a big hunk of metal with holes in it that you screw into the rotor via the little allen head bolts down in there. Then you grease up the supplied longer puller bolt and thread it in and hit it with an impact. Popped it right off. I was floored by how easy it turned out after all the trouble I had. Ive since returned it to Mike. Hats off to Eagle Mike for being so awesome!

Oh wait! You know the story already newcastleadam! I had your tools for like 4 weeks before I noticed all the messages I was getting asking what was up!

You're exactly right! Along with air filter and chain next weekend (depending on weather). However, my findings differ from yours: my doohickey and stock spring were fine. Good tension on the spring and still had plenty of travel to tighten cam chain (just over 13k miles on bike).

Check this out though, this is what happens to bikes with good doo springs...(note the finish)

An aborted hill climb yesterday transformed my high fender into a low fender.

When is the mini-Dakar rally? Just a note: All vehicles need to have a flag and pole to enter the dunes at Little Sahara Oklahoma. State law allows off road vehicles to drive on selected streets in the town of Waynoka. I haven't been to Little Sahara in a few years but from past experience you should bring everything you might need. Shops were not open in the winter. I did find this on the net, called (at 8am) to find if they are open in the winter but no answer.
