Did you install the 16 tooth counter-drive sprocket?
Interesting... Gotta make sure the rings are set right. It might be that.

I put the 16 tooth counter shaft sprocket and a 42 tooth rear sprocket. The low end feels about like my 16 front with stock 43 rear sprocket. He really likes it. Of course it doesnt handle dirt and off road very well. He also has a 14 tooth and the EM counter shaft nut for quick and easy sprocket changes but i dont think he uses it all that often.

Time? I might show if I can get away from the office just to catch up with you; you keep missing the gatherings at casa WB. I assume there will be a smattering of real estate babes, correct?

Something carb related. Im heading to Houston Tuesday. I really hope it doesnt start acting up on the way there. I might dump some sea foam in to be safe.

p815's KLR for bike of the month...

I just noticed that pilot815's KLR is up for Bike Of The Month honors on rgvcycles.com. I already did my duty as a fellow KLR owner and voted for his bike. I think if all the KLR owners on this forum would vote for his bike he would win easily. He's up against some nice sport bikes. I don't think a KLR has ever won a BOTM contest.

Got to meet Yelllowbirdrs at Rudy's today and boy am I jealous. Three freakin months touring on his GS Adventure. Next stop corpus, on to Jacksonville Fla., East coast, northern part of US, Canada, and down the West coast. Hey guys, YB may join us for a future gathering at casa WB since he comes to McAllen a few times a year.



The bike.....sweeeet!


Getting a few calories in for the ride to Corpus.

You know that you are too much of a regular to a sleepy little Mexican tourist town when the transitos (transit cops) set up a road block but when they see you they smile and wave you around ...
