Back wheel

That back wheel sure was locked up... I have finally got all the mud off the bike and am about to start pulling it down to find the problem. I am hoping it is just the clutch. Anyone got any ideas on how to clean the chain and treat it with some kind of grease or oil? It's ike a frozen rope right now.

So you mentioned a challenge a couple of times and showed a T shirt. What was the challenge?

Challenge

The AZBeemers club here in AZ is running a riders cup. There is a list of Dual Sport locations and another for street with sites all over the state. You sign up and then get points for the locations that you ride to. The challenge ends at the end of April and the winners are crowned and prizes awarded at their annual rally. There are many prizes given out it's not just for the winners thats more braggin rights.

It's a cool way to get people out to ride and each time they get a location they post up a picture with the shirt each rider is given with all the sponsors on it. No shirt no points I believe.

Here is a link to the AZBeemers forum where the Riders Cup Challenge is hosted. You do not need to be a member to play, and you can still sign up. There is time to get in on the fun as some prizes are awarded by drawing not just points scored.

Good job on the rescue mission Refokus, thanks for the pics.

Mudd Sucks, on big bikes.

You are lucky you pick the bike up by yourself in that muck. KTM 950 not so lucky. Good friends are a plus also.

I got an idea

Gosh, you could make like bricks and walls and hogans and dwellings and pots and bowls and stuff out of that. Am I the first one to have that idea?

Nice write up and props to your buddy for coming and getting you. I checked out the challenge you are competeing in looks like fun, and you are correct this is the reason we call it Adventure riding. Keep us informed about the bike repair, Thanks.

If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there.

Still cleaning mud

I have pretty much got all the mud off and here is a pic of the mud under the couter sprocket cover.


Seems the output shaft will turn without the chain on and it is appearing like it is just the clutch that is done. I have the parts coming and hope to get it back running next week.

Puke Red Gumbo

We had that in Oklahoma where I grew up.
I noticed that you have white plastics, our red clay would leave stains that look like bloodstains on anything white.
Good luck with the clean-up/repair.

I've been there! no fun at all!

Had an awful mix of clay and field dirt that made a cakey paste like that back in Iowa on a level B road...My little DR200 made it about a mile in on the mile and a quarter stretch before the clutch said see ya! Called my dad to pick me up with the 4x4 and it took a solid hour and a half of pressure washing back home to actually get the mud off. When I pulled the clutch, the discs had gotten hot enough that there was absolutely no friction material on a side.

Hope you get it running soon!
