Sorry, Maybe I'm just over analyzing this. I tend to do that.
The shim stack would be another path. I think. Youtube is my go to reverence. Have you watch MrDuhfactor on youtube. He has a series of videos on the KLX351.

Who knew the Xr makes such a great excavator!
Anyone up for joining me in the first anmual stunt show? It going to be called "Toadl Chaos"!!

P.S. Following after the show, there will be a JB weld how to Clinic!!
Because of comments like that I'm not coming to SD. Okay that's not the reason why, but I should be at the Paul Bunyan Forest Riders Trail Ride. Tbickner and I had a good time at Theilman this last weekend. We saw some sand just like in the video. Unfortunately my 250 doesn't have the torque of the Pig.

Have not checked out the video's. Have to do that sometime. Thanks.

The 07 fork that I played with only contains the broken shaft. No fluid crossover. I checked again after work tonight. Outer shaft is still completely dry.
Guess I better sign up for some suspension schooling.haha
Meanwhile, I'm gonna leave it bolted together and try to get a good run in to see how it reacts offroad. Seemed good on slab and gravel.

Hey where are you guys???

I'm out here now. Been busy all summer and this is my first trail riding. What an introduction!

The word from the people we rented our cabin from is that this has pretty wet year. We've had some pretty good rain since we have been here. Most of our riding has been fine but I don't need to tell you what happens when you hit the gook riding on "death wings". Yup, left the knobs hanging on the wall in the garage. I think it is supposed rain for several days starting thursday.

Been riding steeper hills than I ever dreamed I'd be able to do. Been riding rockier trails than I ever imagined. What a great place to ride!

Lots more riding to do and I'm sure a return visit is in the cards (with different tires...)

Wish I was coming out with you guys!

I pretty much have all the single on the GPS besides the BHNF maps, we will make a "Single Track Saturday" plan once those that are coming show.

Looks like its going to be the "OG" crew

I also got a track from a DDSR member for a custer loop, looks like it would be an all day ride with various double track, Looks fun and scenic, thinking about doing that Friday?

This sounds good 2 me! Do you think It'd be a good idea to gear up for Friday? If there's alot of slab back and forth and not too much tight technical in between, I'd rather have some extra gear for the highway.

Lookn forward to another great weekend! Can't wait!

Thats up to you i guess, if its a simple task it might be alright. I am not going to partially because sprocket specialist has the cog i need on backorder for three weeks and i dont plan on running over 55 ish on the slab.


should be a kick ass weekend as usual ha!

Last ride for me was the spring rally. It's been in pieces practically since. At least everything seems to be coming together in the nick of time!

There's always next time...until then, you will have to live precariously through the 'awesome' footage we're sure to capture this weekend!

Here's a preview!

Cool2 Going to miss all that won't be here

It's going to be a great weekend according to the weather channel. And there is going to be a lot of empty beds, couches and floors. Frig is almost full, M&M jars getting there. Going to miss all of you that can't make it, and will have a great time with those that do. Door is always open to everyone. Be careful on your drives and we will see you soon. The rest of you are in our thoughts. Let the fun begin.

I will remember your generous hospitality last year and wish I could make it again this year, maybe next year? This has been a full biking year for me and I think I've got to be a little careful with my playtime budget while I still have a wife and a home. We've got a couple of good rides yet closer to home at Huntersville and Paul Bunyan that aren't so hard on that budget.

Are you riding that dual-sportser with the crew again this year?

Thanks,
Tom
