Played in the dark with new camera, messing around with stock lighting on the 2013 Baja. Getting ready for some night action got trail work or is that goat trail they seem to narrow in the dark

Installed TT skid plate, radiator gaurd, removed canister so tools will fit under the seat, removed tank to wire up plug for electric vest, and as long as I had it stripped down checked nuts,bolts,wired,hoses,etc.
For those who struggle with the foot peg springs forget that video and simply get an assistant. Use two pliers to bring the ends of the springs together until they are 1/2" apart. Have your lovely assistant tout a zip tie on olace to hold them. Now hold your little bomb by the tail of the zip tie and put the foot peg in place. Lower the spring into place and have your assistant install the pin. Cut the zip tie and you are done, less than a minute a side and no cussing.
I think the tank removal is a little easier on the 1190 than it was on the 990.

Couple days ago I put on a 45 tooth rear sprocket. The front is a 16. The front wheel comes up no problem now. I commuted with it yesterday and really enjoyed it. Not 100% sure Ill keep the 45 on there just yet, I need more time on the bike to make up my mind.

I think after I burn through another Karoo I'm gonna toss a 908 front onto the off-road rim for the 990. Have some real grip for a change. The 606 looks good too.

Received delivery of front suspension parts to upgrade my stock 2012 990A. Suggested upgrade from Jeff for my front end. All settings tried on stock standard and sport levels and front end feels unplanted. Remembering back to how much better it felt after a spring upgrade on my old 2006 Wee-strom this was an easy decision. Can't wait for warmer temps.

- CSR43465-58 springs WP48 .58kg/mm 43x465mm
- MKSKF48WP seals x2

~210# wet, 6', 80% road 20% dirt, NY/NJ/PA roads, 2 multi day multi surface trips per year.

SR service has been great. Also can't thank adv posters enough for all the great info.

The kit is high quality and smart designed. And BMac was extremely generous with his New Years Day phone support.
Is there anyway I can get this kit, or one like it?. I like the way the stock screen is used.

water pump seal

My SE has done 30000k so thought it was time to do the pump seal.

Good job I did as the seal looked like it wouldnt last much longer.
