I accidently found an "easy" way to remove/reinstall shocks when the KLR fell off the milk crate onto it's side. Laying on it's side made it very easy to minipulate the swing arm to line up bolt holes and such. Probably not a good technique for a more pricey or purtier ride...

I don't get furlough days to do that

have two Michaux routes (very similar) to forward to Dorito as soon as I figure out how to do it from BaseCamp.

Bruce, got the bike sorted. Took off the airbox and took apart the throttle body. Cleaned the injector, cleaned the idle actuator, cleaned the body itself. Put everything back together thinking job well done... nope. Still didn't want to idle. I was just getting ready to adjust the throttle cable when I stopped for a second and listened to the sucking sound. The sucking sound... kinda like a vacuum... fucking genius I am. There's a vent of some sort on the throttle housing that wasn't plugged. Popped on a vacuum cap, problem fixed.


For now.

We are still in Vermont. I bet Dixie was glad to get some visitors.
Have fun in WV.
