I believes I'm in for Saturday. No new boots, though, after waiting a week for delivery the damn Crossfires don't fit! Any recommendations for wide feet? The Tech 8s I tried were too narrow also.

Same problem here. How about having a shoe guy stretch them with those wooden things?

These are mostly plastic over leather, I'm not sure they'd stretch. How's the healing going, speaking of feet?

I bought my Gaerne street boots from these folks:

SINISALO PACIFIC
27833 AVE. HOPKINS, NR. 2
91355 VALENCIA CA. - U.S.A.
tel: +8004260213

They are a distributor, no real showroom, but had no problem with me coming up and trying them on.

The weather may force me into an early Saturday morning wake up call. I don't have a job, but I do have a full tank of gas.

Keep about 10 lbs of air in your KLR forks, and you won't blow the seals.

I had 10lbs of air in the forks.
Seems like they would have lasted longer if I didn't put air in them.

You're not supposed to put air in your forks. If you want stiffer suspension and springs aren't doing it, raise your oil level and viscosity.

I just purchased some 10wt. fork oil.
From what I hear that should fix the problem.

Thanks,

Woody

With my fat a$$, I should run 15 wt in the YZ and DR, but I think it's only 10. 10 is ok in the YZ because of the wide range of adjustment. DR has no adjustments with stiffer springs installed and it is still a touch soft. Next change will be 15wt.

Doen't hurt, just waiting for xrays to say I can put full pressure on it. Couple more weeks.

I got tired of customers telling me how dangerous motorcycles are, so I tell them my accident was related to bull riding.
