Attempted a second ride on KLX then had a front tire go flat nursed bike home.

Third attempt hooked trailer up and loaded new to me YZ up and headed back out had a bad plug so I swapped it then a few minutes later had engine failure on same bike.

I think I will just put the Vstom and KLX up for sale at this point fix the YZ pay some bills and see where I wind up after the smoke clears
