Fark you Lentil, you've cursed me once again. " Oh gee Fogo, you abuse that engine, your not very nice to it. "

Plans have now changed, I am taking a tent, 8 litres of water and food for 4 days.

Let the adventure begin. I need some advice, please no smart ass comments. - Do I play my IPOD really loud all the way out there or listen to the growly noises from below.



Faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr rrkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk.

Cheers Fogo.... Team shit box.

Looks like that 3 months of going to the gym was a total waste of time.

Yeah, but wont be tring to keep up with the front runners this year and no KLX flybyes. But when she blows I'll try and catch it on the gopro.

Thanks guys.

Jeez Fogo, i have been watching your progress with interest and are sorry to see the issues that you currently have. I hope that it all works out for you and to meet you at the Corner.
This is my first attempt and i am going solo .
I have just finished prepping the Kato and hopefully nothing has been forgotten.

Below is my spot tracker link for those who maybe interested. Bring on the 21st I say!

If all else fails I will pull another KLX out of the stable. Juniors bike needs a head gasket and I will pull all the new parts off my bike and transfer it all over, no electric start though. Good bottom end that doesn't make metal.

Good luck to all.

Are the emus as thick as last year?

I was out there in November '11, and Emus were like flies - went out toward Renmark, Burra etc last week and reckoned I didnt see as many...??

Oh well, the green machine is back together. standard cams are back in, engine flushed out and Valvaline XLD premium put in it. after getting that shit Motul 7100 out. Ultra heavy duty clutch springs fitted so it wont slip with the slippery oil. She is going well. I put Juniors wheels on tonight and will take it for a run to Tamworth tomorrow and put 500klms under its belt and cut a filter when I get home, Starting to think it is abusive shifts that may have made the metal. Cross your fingers. I checked the engine oil pressure and spec is 12 psi at 4000 RPM and thats what I've got.



Cheers Fogo...
