Any of you guys have need for the Harmonizer?

If anyone wants to try it before they buy, let me know.

hey Keating, You'll have a blast - the area is great.

you should ask Sean to take you for a tour ... I guarantee you'll have hoot. Just make sure you have your carb's vent hoses properly routed first ;-)

Hey Sean, sound familiar? The profile is a straight copy :)

Cheers,
Lol.....Pete

Working on it right now.
Disconnected cables from throttle assembly. Lots of spring tension, cables are clear... carb snaps back clean with cables attached.
Checked the bar with a vernier. Fully round for its full length.
Tube drags a bit on the bar. Too tight(?!?!?!?)
I have a brass rod that is within a couple thou, coincidentally.
Added a wrap of electric tape to add a couple thou to the rod.
The grip+tube is on the stove top in the steamer basket (had steamed brussels sprouts for supper, so it was there...), softening a little before it gets the cell block 6 treatment from the brass rod.

Welcome Btw.
Thanks.
No guards (yet). Closed end throttle tube and grip for now.
Considered cutting the ends off, thinking it couldn't hurt, but figured that for now, they'll prevent shit getting rammed in there during a dump, until some Barkbusters go on.

Already looked at it.
Looks like a blast, but I'm kinda thinking the same thing... maybe next year

One of the guys I talked to about another KLR told me about a trail club a little west, but they require a trail pass or something.
I'm more into backwoods exploring. Places where I could carry in a fishing rod and wet a line in a stream.

There are some very cool, and intermediate roads that lead to some decent fishing holes....California Rd, Darling, Lavant etc.

Since you are new, you should be aware of the http://algonquinlandclaim.ca/

It is unpopular subject with some, but it needs to be out there. 4x4 clubs, Cottagers, Snowmobilers, hunters and fisherman are fighting against this, but I haven't seen much concern in the ADV rider groups. We will lose trails if we do not fight for it.
