I may be due for a valve check. I just need to look into my crystal calendar.

CJ,
Hope to make it for the Arctic Cat tech day. Probably by then we'll have another starter to rebuild. I'll bring lots of springs.

Kevin and Alexander

I'll be there. Should be back from vacation in the first week of August, so this is a good date.

Probably gonna do the valve job I had in mind last fall.

Still a few months out, just updating to let everyone know it's still on, or inform new owners.

So far this is the plan.

Fri- Rekluse install around noon, Start of valve shim adjustment afterward on my bike. W/ the limited room now I may have to do this more of a demonstration style than a work on your own bike. (3 bikes max inside) I'll figure that out when the time gets closer and I have actual numbers of how many will be showing up.

Sat- Finish up valve work and put bikes back together.

Sun- finish up then go for a ride.

I do have some trails is my back yard (about a 2-3 mile loop) if anyone wants to do some offroad practice on there bikes.

Tent camping is welcome.

Arctic Cat Tech Day

Wow,
Mine hasn't looked that good since it was brand new.

Nice!

These are pictures of mine right after I got it in the summer of 73. It was the last new 72 model the dealer had.

Count me in...

Hey Craig, I'll be there, so long as I'm still employed and owning a 950 in August.

You still going to Idaho in September? I think I can make it this year, barring any job related strangeness.

Hope you are having a good summer!

Cheers,

Monty "Dave"

Hope you can make it.

About a month away.

Plans are for most of the work to be started on Fri. around 10am. Finished up on Sat. Test ride on Sun. I'm working on the list of all the riders that have said they plan to attend and what they want to do. I've got limited shop room this year, so unfortunately not everyone will be able to work on there bike. I plan to offer as much info and demonstration that I can. You will be required to work on your own bike, (no better way to learn) but I will be more than willing to help and answer questions.

Some projects are:

Friday Aug 14th

-Rekluse/ update install
-Start valve check / oil change/ waterpump rebuild

I'll be in need of a Valve shim change before my next trip, so I will have my bike torn apart for demonstration.

- Fri Dinner at the house may be carry out from a great local burger joint.

Fri/ SAt Aug 15th

- Install new chain and sprockets
- Check/ change brake pads
- Rim lace/build up

We may have a rider from the "North". All the way from Canada to demonstrate this Rim build-up.

- Finish up assembly
- Sat night dinner we plan to have food here.


Sun Aug 16th

- TIME TO RIDE

If the weather is nice and the track is not a sloppy mess the trails will be open to ride all weekend. I have about a 2.5-3 mile loop that is great practice on a 950 ADV. But still fun on smaller bikes. If you want to stop out to see some wrenching and hit the trails on your DS bike, let me know so I can anticipate how large a group we'll have.

Lunches and breakfast are still up in the air. I may have some helpers that can do some running to get food for the group. I hope to have some hard numbers in a week, so please update the post if you can and can't make it.
Please try and let me know if you can make it or not no later than July 31st. We'll need time to get food stuff figured out.

I'll start a list in this thread as I get names.

The local dealer (Petrie Motorsports) is giving us a price break on parts and accessories. They offer a lot of support and knowledge for this event. So if there is anything you need for this event I can order it and have it here waiting for you. Contact me so I can make sure all the correct parts get ordered. I'll place one large order no later than Aug 3rd and pick up all the parts a few days before the Tech Weekend. This has worked well in the past and ensures you have all the parts needed to finish the task at hand. Also make your travel easier if you plan to ride here.

- For those riding out to the KTM rally in ID. It's about 2000 miles out. I figure about 5-6,000 mile trip if you like riding mountain trails. I normally figure 15,000 miles per chain and sprocket set. If you're getting close to the end, I'd recommend a new set for piece of mind. I plan to install fresh nobbbies when we get out there. (Still working on that)

I'll have room for free camping, bring the mosquito spray, I live in the woods. There are also Hotels in Town, I'm about 5 miles out.

That's it for now, dig out your tool kits and and find Mukwonago on the map. Hope to see you here.

I'm in...I'm bringing the tent and will set up in the back yard. If anyone is coming down from the Neillsville area let me know and we can ride down together.
I'm looking forward to a Katie Kalfas (AKA mrs. CJracer) Mexican fiesta for the dinner portion of the show.....
