No problem with the Kreem Combo Pack. VERY good stuff.

Enjoy the new (to you) toy.
Lucky Dawg.

On another note.
PMason, as in Paul Mason?
You wouldn't happen to race MotoX would you?
If so, you are one heck of a rider, better than that 100 suspension could ever handle.
No relation. I'm a novice trail rider really. I wish I had more time to become a better rider but I have a young family.

The tank did get pin holes in the bottom when we shook some small rocks in it to get the crap out. I was thinking JB weld or similar but maybe a repair kit is the better ticket.

Clutch was locked up but a quick disassemble/reassemble fixed it up. My friend works at a boat yard in Yarmouth, he has been keeping the project moving at a fast pace since he loves to tinker with engines. He's been filling the carb with outboard 2stroke gas and running it around the yard, then refilling the bowl for another run.

It takes years of government training to reach that level men. Don't think less of yourself if you do not not see the problem represented in the photo.

I wouldn't use JB Weld or Marine TeX for that application, personally my Wifes TW 200 had the same small pin holes and the three part Kreem kit did wonders. Just use the product as desc. and it should be good for years to come.

tank repair

I used Kreeme to repair the BMW tank of small weeping. it lasted may years but finally leaked again with a larger area of weak metal so I took it to a radiator repair shop who welded a patch on the bad spot and coated the inside with a red colored stuff which has been working good for many more years...the price for the rad shop was not bad considering the money you spend to do it your self.....

Here's the other end of it.


If you're not sure its been done, you might want to have a look at the ktm info site to at least see if your bike is suspect.

so now you have pieces of copper floating all thru your engine.. i would do an oil change again in a 1000 miles to be safe... not like you can put a magnet somewhere to pick up all that crap..

I was heading up the hill past Head Tide road on 218 when it hesitated and started to clatter. I eased it home, which is only a few miles, mostly down hill. I will admit I was feeding it a hot supper, but only running about 8k rpms out of 10.5k. There was lots of oil in the top end, and the cam journals look great. For having a chunk of forged aluminum to get hot, that motor never really had any piston slap when it was cold. That always concerned me. Most forged pistons I have dealt with make a fair amount of racket 'till they get warmed up. I'll get some new parts, rebuild it, and beat on it some more.
Any progress on this? Did BB make good?

bah!

Pulled an oil screen this morning. No material. None on the filter either. Oil drained clean.

I've seen worse internal explosions on bikes of mine. You ought to see what a clutch does when it gets over excited in a 150 hp inline 4.

I got lucky with this one.

I'm still picking pieces of the doohickey out of my KLR every time I change the oil, 8000 miles later

No, not yet. I thought I'd invest in a left hand drill bit for that one. I bet it comes right out. All six of these bolts were loose.

Know some place I can find those here in Maine?
