Chris, Crypto only struggles with visiting because he knows he's gonna want to stay here
Crypto, beware BuRPSA's dogs, one is trained at sniffing visitors backpacks, another is trained at biting balls and I believe the other is trained at sniffing ladies skirts - I can't confirm this as I wasn't wearing one and neither was BuRPSA

Thoughts on this noise? Loudest by crank bearings. Didn't go away with clutch pulled in, Didn't get worse under heavy load.

Glad you like it. Our adventures tend to always end up like this. haha.

No idea how the TOI will turn out. I'm a little concerned about that one but we'll see where our pigs will take us. I know we're going to have to get to bed early and up at a reasonable hours to cover the miles every day. We tend to ride till dark normally, but our starting times are never spectacular.

I really wanted to go riding today but as you might have heard, our city is under water. Many of the bridges are washed out, especially on these back country roads used to access our riding locations. I'll probably still head out tomorrow for one reason or another.

Sounds like mine.

I think I've read that the counter balancer gear teeth make the knocking noise.

I need some carb help guys, I recently installed a Mikuni TM40 and am having problems tuning it, the bike won't idle below 1800 rpm, as soon as it drops below that it sputters and quickly dies, the idle also hangs when I let off throttle, it will hand around 3000 and then very slowly drop. I have played with the idle adjustment and the pilot screw, also put in a larger pilot jet but I am not having much luck. Anyone have any ideas on where to look next?
Thanks
