If my tire comes in, I'll take the LC4.
If not I'll take the Superduke.

New Kenda Big Block, just picked it up.
Replaces the same that I wore clear out.

Gotta put that back on in the morning, get the EXC to start (WTF) and then do some roof work in the garage

I just replaced the stator on my xc. It was weird. Thought I foulded a plug. Changed the plug, started right up for 10 more min then dead again. Stator ohmed out wrong so I changed it and voila! Hope your fix is much easier than mine... And cheaper.

Mine was parked in the yard, kickstand sank and the bike fell over.
Might have laid there a minute. I picked it up and now it won't start

Not like it's the first time it's been on it's side since I've had it, always started before.

Stuck float? Frickin swear, my xc is bound to leak something. Got my countershaft sealed up and its still got a drip drip from the clutch case. At least its a cheap and easy fix. I just want to ride!

That isn't an oil leak, it's sweat from all the horsepower.

Mine is fixed, the kill switch wire got pinched between the mirror mount and clutch mount.
Nearly cut the wire and was grounding it I guess.

As soon as I pulled it from between there I had spark.
Wire is repaired, heat shrinked and everything put back together. Bike started first kick.

New rear tire on the LC4, and I have to work in D.C. next week

They're supposed to do that, hell new ones setting on the showroom floor leak.

I think I might go for a ride on the WR tomorrow, haven't had it out in a while.

A friend of mine did something like that a few years ago. He said " my bike won't start and there's no spark, I think the ignition's bad". I asked him what the last thing he did to the bike was. " I put new bark busters on.." Yep, there it was, his kill switch wire was neatly held in place by his hand guard clamp..

The term "thinking chess and playing checkers" comes to mind.

Did a 100 mile dual sport in Cabell/Putnam and into Chief Corstalk. Had fun. How about a ride in Pocahantas County WVdirtbiker?

I'm ready when you are, any time except the weekend of Sept. 21 - 22.

We can easily knock out 100+ miles of dirt roads in the Laurel Fork Wilderness area.
