Thought I'd cross post here:

I got the bike back from Montreal on the weekend and just pulled the starter off to check the clutch.

There is no friction material on the clutch disc, it's all in a rats nest at the bottom of the housing. I can actually see the disc and the rivets and there's nothing on either side, just the rivets sticking out

Never seen one that bad.

Splines look great and it's dry in there so the rear main seal isn't leaking.

This should be an easy one

Hey Brian, did we see you out on your lawn tractor this afternoon? Stephanie and I had a couple of hours to kill so we went out on our DRs.

Not really sure where you live but I thought south of Kemptville and that's where we were riding.

It was about here I thought I saw you. Or someone who looked like you, and waved as we went by.

The barn kind of looks familiar.

I am very close to Limerick forest. People south of Kemptville tend to wave at everyone going by. Gets a little annoying at times.

No argument from me on that.

I can walk down my road having a beer and my neighbour will invite me in, not call the cops.

The forecast for tomorrow looks quite nice.

Quantis and I planning to ride, but we don't know where yet.

If anyone would like to join us, the more the merrier.

Stephanie and I are trailering the DRs up to the tourist info booth at the lake in Calabogie, then riding unmaintained/back roads and trails North of that. Our TKCs are getting a little worn to keep doing that trip up on paved roads, so that's why we're using the trailer this time.

We plan to be there around 10:30 or so.

Is that the area immediately beside the dam at the start of the 511, gravel parking area with a boat launch and out houses?

Yes, that's the place. The outhouses being the most important part. To Stephanie, anyway. To me, the whole world is an outhouse. But don't tell her I said that.
