At least if you run out it'll be easier to push.

Yes, but pushing EOD3MC and Blaster might be tiring

Great day wrenching with Blaster...and oogling the new bike...
(photos posted in the 400 thread)

Thanks for letting me play. As usual, your problably going to cost me more money. But I think I can wait until mine needs it before I go installing the 434 Kit.

Thanks for the food and footwear as well...much appreciated

Are you putting them on the DRZ?

I'm on the fence about doing any more stuff to the KTM. It's getting worse than a Bring.Out.Another.Thousand.

Serious maybe, gotta check cash flow after this repair on the DRZ. If you come this way today stop by and I will give you some more cash for the trailer.

Is it worse to break out the wallet or complain that your hands are cold and wet? The cost of the bike and what you have put into it has little to do with much, it's more like is it set up properly. The SXC seems to be a good bike that needs some TLC....like most used bikes. Pace yourself and let the bike prove itself before you put more cash into it. Have you gotten Ryan's bike back yet?

In which the DRZ lives again

Blaster has been heat cycling the 'new' bore all afternoon. Sneaky him decided to put the big bore kit on the DRZ...now it's a 434. I sure hope he likes waiting for the DR200 to catch up on the trail
