Ken's proven Four Step program for figuring out any and all moto related issues:

Step 1. I have a staple gun. (must make pew-pew-pew sound)

Step 2. Bring Guinness

Step 3. We will grill animal flesh

Step 4. We will figure it out or at least have fun trying.



Cheers

Hoolikens 1st Annual Cold Weather Tech Day?

Went out for a long ride on the Buell yesterday. And one of the mother-lovin fork seals is leaking again.......

Soooooooooooooooo????

Anybody up for another Tech Day. Ordered the seals and bushings for the Buell fork yesterday. And the Mrs. would love to meet some of you.

I will supply two bay garage (with a little heat), tools, and food.

After hanging out with Nug's, the forks are pretty straight forward. But another set of hands is definitely needed during tear-down/assembly. Not sure of a date yet, but thinking a weekend in January would be cool.

If anybody is interested just give me a shout.

I have two swingarm stands, a moto/atv lift (actually two at the moment cause I still have Toms that I need to get back to him.......) and an MX stand. Torque wrenches, impacts, vacuum gauges, bearing removal/install tools, tire change stand (it works good for offroad/DS tires but would not want to use it for supersport/touring stuff. Pretty much if you need it for a moto, I have it.

Cheers Ken

Hey there

Ragrvs,
Shoot me a PM and we can talk! Gotta clear you first; make sure you're not a single track-destroying quad monster with a hundred quad riding buddies that hate silencers!

Cheers,
Lance

Thanks! Looks like a fun ride.

Ouch

And now, for the rest... of the story:

I am happy to report that all little dudes are back home safe and sound with a new love for riding dirt!

I, unfortunately, am typing this from a hospital wheelchair with a possible broken foot. Dang X-Ray tech wouldn't budge and tell me the news! So now I am waiting for the doc to confer with the radiologist and let me know what's what.

On the bright side, the GoPro should have caught the whole thing on video! I can't wait to see it! For the record, I totally landed that jump and did NOT crash. I just came down so hard on the mighty XR650 from a way-too-big-for-my-bike jump that I snapped something important somewhere in my foot. Me weighing 250 may have had something to do with it, but I'll never admit it! I did ride back, load up the bikes, drive home, and put the bikes to bed. Foot was still killing me, so off to the hospital I went!

I was fully geared up, by the way, and wearing A-Stars riding boots. 13 year old boots, but still holding up.

Hey, the PA just came in, and it's just a chipped bone and sprain in the arch of my foot! Nice! I didn't know you could sprain your arch.

Hope everyone else faired better than me this weekend!

Cheers,
Lance

I am in, but before you tear those forks down again, try the film trick.

In a nutshell, you pull the dust seal down, and use a piece of thin plastic to clean any crap out of the oil seal.

Have the two different types of seal savers.........but it has lost enough oil at this point that it is a lost cause.

Do any of the shops in the area have decent tire prices, or would I be better off ordering from the internet?

I'll be looking for a set of 120/80-17 (Front) and 140/80-15 (Rear)

And along the same lines, what are the best options for getting tires mounted? I would remove my wheels myself. I tried spooning the tires myself last time on this bike, but that 15" rear was a real PITA for some reason (I don't think 40 degree tires and garage helped any).

Sucks to hear that Lance. Kinda surprised that happened with just a regular jump. Was it a double? Triple? Hopefully, the weather will be crappy while your foot heals. GWS!
