It'd be like riding two 450's at the same time.

Whats dat? A monometer?

Might be interesting to compare results with both devices. I appreciate the offer. Ordered the tool yesterday... If it is not here by the time I need it I may hit you up on that.

I also have the one motion pro sells but it was frustrating to deal with so I bought this one. Works much better. I have had my share of bikes with 4 carbs so this thing is a must have.

Well, the trail I was inquiring about was about as overgrown/rutted as I had anticipated. So basically, it was good fun. We only did the first section, then caught the road up to dirt road on the backside of Tollhouse rock.

There is a trail in there somewhere, just over the mirror.

Hey Scott,
I know of a great trail in northwest Sequoia that needs alot of TLC.....
With a good crew and a few days we could have it in kickass condition.

Sounds like a good start, don't forget the calamine lotion.

1 valve down... 7 to go, bah this is slow going. Hope to have the front cylinder buttoned up tonight. With a little luck maybe the front wont need adjusting? I know, fat chance of that happening.

Well.. upside is plugs are getting changed and I found the reason the grip heaters weren't working... Hah... Grip heaters! I am a regular starbux customer already!

WAS interested.... until I realized that it was a DOWNGRADE!

On a serious note. I hope you're doing ok and you don't NEED to sell it. Also, i'm used to a 1200 so all jokes aside, it is an downgrade in cc's....~

I'm just going to have to quit trying to explain performance to you BMW guys. You just can't understand what you've never seen.

I'm good and thankfully I don't need to sell any toys. I just felt like maybe it should go to a home where it would be appreciated. Monti was my only call. His visit got me thinking about riding again.
How've you been?

Mission accomplished. Hah!

And more on the KTM... Front cyclinder valves all at the very extreme end of tolerance (tight, intake and exhaust) bike should run noticable different. Hopful to have the motor buttoned up by friday ... If my damn carb tune tool comes in on time.
