Holy fawk you are destructive

I have broken a couple of those vices, they are cast and when you start yanking on stuff the vice and bench part company.
I even broke one in two where the screw goes thru the vice, had something in it that kept slipping. So I kept tightening, and tightening. And it broke.

I was going to rebuild the forks on the wife's Honda, now I think I'll have someone else do it

I'm not pickin' on ya, Matt. If I had a /2 I'd have given up on it ages ago. I put them in the same category as a Ducati: they're cool but I'm simply not smart enough to own one

Lemme know when you want me to come by, Jenna. That engine's gotta be heavy. No sense breaking your back doing it alone.

I got some good news today, btw. I can't pay my ticket on-line. Reckless Driving requires you to go to court and my court date's not til April. That means I can spend all my Honda money on the bug and deal with that ticket later!

Jenna, great to see you making progress. I was afraid the race against my mighty DT was at risk. You're not souping up the Suzi, are you?

Nah...no souping up. Anybody got any tire ideas. Ideally I'd like to keep it under 50 bucks for front and rear. Let me know what you think I should run?

Yay progress! those wristpin clips are kinda whacked, that same type came with the siebenrock kit. It's easier to put one in the piston first, then put the piston and wristpin on then do they final clip. I like the kind that are workable with a real tool.
Speaking of tools they really do make the job easier. I'm gonna get one of those whackers, myself.

I have the GP1s on my DT175. I've only ridden the bike about 30 miles but they seem ok.

I fixed the trailer and welded up some braces. Its not going to bend again. At least not on that side

But no KLR work. It was late by the time Mike had torn into it. He was going to check the motormounts and a few other things himself before we started towing trailers all over the place. He's got Thursday free so I'm going to pick it up in the new & improved bike hauler and bring it back to the cave. Our best guess is that something is seriously wrong with his balancer system.

Here's what my week is looking like: Sunday I played around with Fred's bike. Monday I worked on Len's. Tomorrow I'm going to monkey around on yours and then the KLR on Thursday. Friday I'm going hiking. Unemployment is wonderful

Call me in the morning!

+1 on the Shinko's, I have them on my small bikes and they perform well on and off road, but I guess it depends on what type of terrain you will be riding, a full knobby is much better on dirt.

Congratulations on the motor, that seems like a lot of progress! They go together a lot easier than coming apart, don't they?

Can't wait to see this thing smoking!

Jenna, let me check the takeoffs in the shed this weekend. I likely have something with about 75 percent left on it.
