Excellent.
Was thinking of just ordering the do, torsion spring and gaskets, but for the kit price, you're only paying a couple dollars for the wrench and rotor puller.
Interesting wrench they have there. Though I think I already have a 32mm crowfoot.

Replaced my well pump a couple years ago. Not a fun job, hauling a couple hundred feet of slimey pipe out of the well.
Last year, I had to dig up the pipe from the well head to the house because the asshole who installed the well originally, connected the poly pipe to the pitless adapter with a galvanized fitting and it rusted out.

I've got a fence to build in the next two weeks, three rooms to paint and 600 sq/ft of tile to lay, and two vehicles that need oil changes and tires rotated.
Plus my day job...

You know what they say about when you assume?

Which windshield?

I currently have the stock windshield on my 2013 KLR650 but would like to change it to one that would give me more protection from the wind. I'm 6'2" and the stock windshield doesn't seem to block any of the wind from hitting me right in the face. There are several different brands that say they have the windshield I need. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Then do the 22cent mod. That is the small covered screw on the underside of the carb. It is covered with a plug as it is supposed to be set lean - again to pass the polution control issues. Remove the plug (dril a small hole in it carefull and pull it out with a probe), and screw the needle out to about 2 /12 times or the popping stops. That needle jet then richens up the idle circuit.

Try the 22c mod first.
Thanks for that,the Aussie bikes have no EPA bits and also the pilot air screw is not covered,so shall back out another 1/2 turn(2 turns out at present) and see/hear what happens.
Cheers PJ

So you get my point then?
If not, my question is, since the doo doesnt need immediate adjustment, which of your chores should you do first? Manually adjust the chain or maintain one of your other vehicles?

I wasnt trying to be a dick, and I dont really have anything against Canadians. But seriously, only one job and you havent found time to change the oil in your igloo yet?
...My god! I sound like my wife!

You might not have the USA EPA regs but you have your own there that restrict the carb slide.

Anyway be patient, Rick is one of the best suspension guys in the country and the Moab shock is tiptop, as is his after sales service.
[QUOTE=bush pilot;21933538]

Hi folks, we have been on a little more than a weeks vacation. Back late Monday. We have been building shock parts while Joyce and I are out. We have been picking up voice and emails every couple days and I'm not sure how we missed this one. Hate that, sorry! We will be able to ship shocks quite quickly next week because of the staging work. This is the first time in 11 years that Joyce and I have been away together for more than a long weekend. Thanks for the kind words bush pilot! Joyce and I both worked the STT track event at CMP a couple weeks back, rode our Ducs a bunch and got to see several great customers. Love it!

I'm very happy with the service from A Vicious Cycle, though I will say that in the future I'll be doing all my ordering over the phone, and not over the website. It's hard to offer good customer service if you're not actually speaking with the customer.

A couple of issues

I was doing a pre ride check yesterday and discovered my rear sprocket carrier had significant lateral (side to side) play.

I pulled the wheel and when I fit the socket carrier spacers into the bearing I am able to deflect the bearing outer race over 0.090" and rock the spacers inside of the inner race. I'm assuming it's in need of replacement?

Second, I can't get the brake rotor side spacer to separate from the bearing and I'm thinking it's corroded in there. Any ideas?
