I'm starting my coast-to-coast (and back) trip from L.A on August 1, and though I can't say for certain that I'll make it there by the 14th-15th-16th, there's a possibility And by the time I get there I'm probably gonna need one of everything, so just go crazy on ordering parts

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 inside. Oil changes are easily done outside anyways. 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 Starting at 10 am.
-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.

Craig,

make me a certain YES for attending. I'll set up a tent in the back yard.

Rekluse update, valve check, brake check, perhaps new tires, and and oil change. Do the carbs on this thing ever need synching?

Peter

Thanks for the update Peter.

I don't have the tools to synch the carbs, I'm sure they do, but I've not done mine in 48,000. I could look into that. If anyone has this equipment please bring it.

PM me if you need parts.

When are you going to get here? If you could show up during the day on Fri that would be the best. You've got a lot of work ahead of you.

First come first serve for garage work space.

later,
cj

Man I wish you lived around here, we could do a demo of "how to prep a 990 for a South America trip" That would just about cover everything and my bike would be ready to go!

I hope to swing by at least one of those days.


The eldest is possibly moving back to Eau Claire that w/e. Maybe I just give her the truck and roll on my own 2 wheels.




Two into one takers?

I've added you to the list, hope you can make it.



We'd like to have a rough count end of this week. This way Katie can start planning for how much food, and what to make.


I just got back from doing the first round of track maintenance. Should have about a 3 mile loop.

Looks like we should have great group of about 10 riders so far, w/ a lot of projects going on. If you want to come you do not need to work on your bike to attend. Stop by to say high, meet some local...and not so local LC8 riders, or hit the trails to practice your skills.

I've picked up most of the parts required for each bike. Everyone will have there own box. I'll be PMing everyone on the list location and update info w/in a week or so.

If you are thinking of stopping by PM me for an address.

If you are planning on more than just an oil change I'd like you to arrive anytime on Fri. We will start w/ a Rekluse install around 10am.

Valves need to be checked when the bike is cool. Figure about 6hrs + of work for this job, plus cool down time. (Please don't stop by Sat at noon to do valves.)

Free camping FRI, SAT. SUN night if you need/want to.

We'll have food Fri and Sat night. Breakfast will be continental style. Lunches something easy...Subs, Pizzas.

(This is not a formal school or training weekend, I'm just offering this as a chance for all of us to learn something and share ideas. If how I work on my bike is not how you prefer to do it, by all means do it your way. I'm not forcing you to change. Track will be open, Ride at your own Risk)

Leaning towards a "Y" now, although I won't have much to do on my 950. This has been the lowest-mileage year of my adult life for motorcycling.
