KLR Tech Day Front Range?

Hey Folks- is there any plans for a KLR tech day coming up? I am in need of some help and would love to have help/advise on Deep Hole and Valve checking. I also have the thermobob installed, but not sure if it is working correctly. The temp gauge on the bike (08KLR) has never worked correctly (stays real low- not even coming up to the C on gauge- sometimes bounces around). Just typical KLR stuff I know-

Plans?

Thanks in advance.

My next tech day will be in April or May, don't know the date yet. Usually a Saturday. We'll do another later in the year, probably September.

I'll post the dates here, on a couple KLR sites, and on SgtMarty dot com.

has anybody done the "MC mod" to their KLR yet? (advancing the exhaust cam timing 1 tooth) I'd be interested in doing this to my bike (and the doo too).
