Dirty girl

Proof of use:



Just a little NC mountain dirt on her. Most of it was washed off by the rain on the ride home.

I've been around some of the other LC4 related threads, but this is my official "sign in". I've only had the bike for maybe 2 months, but I've already fallen in love. It's plenty of dirt bike for me at this point, and a much better street bike then I expected. The GS might go on the block in the Spring.

She's still bone stock, but I've got some stuff in the works.

Y'all be cool.

Weclome to the dark side stobie!

The fellers in here got some ideas for you on the mods. I am about to do mine (pipe, airbox, jetting, etc.).

C U soon...

Stobie, thanks for getting Creeper off his soft core jag. He was headed for trouble Bike looks good. I am about to go mess with my radiators & thermostat. If I get frustrated, I'll go for the instant gratification of putting the Pastrana FMXs on. I have knobbies on as we speak, but after a little woods riding last weekend, I think I would have been fine with the E3s. The tires wouldn't have been as limiting as the weight I will likely save the knobbies for the next real ride. I bought a Michelin Desert rear and an MT-21. Running the MT now. I plan to hold the Michelin out for Mexico. Right now its just a cherished object that exemplifies some wonderful future trip. Sick

Enjoy. You've got the swiss army knife of bikes

I just got myself set up to take the first week of December off, plus a couple of days, to go back to Mexico on the 640 Adventure. I'm psyched.

The last trip was trying to make a dirt route to get there, but this trip will be making the loop from Creel - Batopilas - Urique - Divisadero - Creel.

I just got a new set of MT21's mounted up. I found my carb needle was bent when I was cleaning up the carb. I had never had this bike apart before since it is new to me - at least ~1,000 miles ago. The bent needle was a surprise. The airbox has been modified, and the original exhaust was cut open and gutted, and then rewelded. The sound is pretty tolerable with 8 'trapp discs. The MJ is a 165, and it's a bit fat at altitude. I have a 157 that I'll bring with me.

So, in went a new $8 needle. I also bought another clutch cable and have that routed along the old cable just in case. I finally ditched the OE plastic handguards and put on a set of Moose ones.

I put a new set of Ferodos on, and yet another set of fork seals. I finally got the clutch/mainshaft bearing, so I'll change that too. Toss in an oil & filter change, and I'm ready to go.

Sounds good GP! Are brake pads somewhat universal for KTMs? are the calipers common from 125s to 640s? I think the 660SM uses 4 pot calipers.
I have had the mainshaft bearing since last Spring. I need to get a gasket, and grind the bolts, etc.. to make the tool. Anybody have their (successful) home made unit ready to lend to a lazy ass?

Thank you for posting your route in the report from your last trip. I would like to do a similar trip in the next year or two. No bike GPS yet, but I plan to use soome of the resources off this site. We Drove from Creel to Batopilas, and back to Cuahtemoc in one day six or seven years ago in our 2wd Ford Exploder. Not recommended, but we had committed to meet my parents at Big Bend by X day, and that was the deal. The dope growers must be retreating further down the Urique with all the tourism, right? I bet after the train was hit a few years ago, the gloves came off. Any recent river running stories? There were some sketchy ones years ago in the bad old days, but that may have changed, too. "Tears of Gold" is an interesting read about a family's history in the canyon, if you are interested. OK, verbosity alert! I'm out. Look forward to your reports!

I've got TKC80's on the way. The E3's are better than I expected offroad, but I've been riding in rocks (not gravel, ROCKS) and damp hardpack. Pure street tires woulda prolly worked. I have pushed the front on pavement, though.

I'm seriously thinking about the Pastrana FMX's in conjunction with some pennytech risers, a la creeper/loaded (I'm 6'4"). It would be sweet to be able to ride standing in comfort. I'll probably put heated grips on when I change the bars. The GS has me spoiled on that count.

Keep us posted on your cooling problem.
