Must be something on your end

Well, to be truthful, by the time I got there, there were just four of us.

Missed you guys- or rather, while in SLC I rode an '09 Tiger at the BMW dealer

so obviously I need one, and because my corporate office is there and twisty and straight roads are between there and here, I think I'll get something from them and ride it home when I can afford it...... eventually

what I can afford is the Applied clamp and fat bars for the KLR, and a set of tires. -Kenda Big Blocks- should have the clamp/bars on tonight and hoops spooned on for next meet up.

Bluhduh KLR parts needed

I did the triple clamp over the weekend and found the right fork leg is bent- I need a straightener - anybody use a press to get close enough?

also the axle bolt is less than true- looking for a straight one there as well.

PeterMan; your reputation as a tinkerer and KLR mo'betta-fier, coupled with a machine shop lead me to imagine all sorts of finely crafted and arrow straight stuff is just laying around for the barter system to work it's magic- anybody else got a good local idea to salve my woeful steer/suspension predicament- speak up.

that is all. now to bodge the shyte together as close as I can manage so I can ride tomorrow.

USD Forks,,find yerself a pair, and we'll do a clinic,,,, the more the merrier, we could set up a production line for stem mods, and steering stop fixes. Anybody else wanna swap yer KLR front end!?
I have a set off a KLX650, but I'm skeered to tear apart the best running bike I have to do the swap.....Ewww!,,then I'd have to ride a Beemer! Eeeeww!

I'm considering a fork-ectomy, and upgraded bouncers would be great but I'm getting thin in the wallet with all the trips to pro-cycle already- I talked to them about straightening the bent tube; sounds like it's a common practice? I'll throw stiffer springs in as well and seals as good measure, new axle bolt is ordered too. I really like the new trippple clamp on the bike but had to trim the 'shield so my mirrors will clear, I'll bring the scoot to the meet tonight for some inspection and drooling...
