Well mine is still in pieces but it starts. Still lots to do. I hope you have brakes ans the wheel format front end.
I am waiting on parts but may go without them.

Wrong order.

Oh that's right, you don't have a KTM.

Never mind.

I've allowed monetary concerns to sway my final judgement as to which bike gets the Heidenaus,,Hmm, airhead or KLR?,,,
,of course! easy,,put the good new tires on the more reliable bike

stupid relays!
relay THIS muthafugger!
tank on the bike,,no happy!
remove tank, turn key, push button,,HAPPY!
look and look at everything plastic tube shaped that has copper inside it,,,try button, nothing, wiggle wiggle,,got contact!
OKAY THEN!,,what the heck is loose or shorting out, get the book and look at the purty pictures of colored lines,,like my brother TBlume taught me,,hmm, big wad of stuff not hooked to anything,,why are these wires here?
book says,,Stupid safety stuff, that's why!
who doesn't know that motosickles are dangerous, and safety stuff only works for idiots and those who don't by-pass all the switches,,and relays,,the frikken relays!
Relays!,,I carried the electron baton this far, now you spozed to send it over there to that guy, then he sends it to the starter motor so peterman can have the happy!,,I hate relays,,some fucker always drops the baton!
10 yard dash would make more sense,,don't need all this relay junk, and don't even mention adding hurdles,, this track is hard enuff just jogging at old man speed!

okay,,fingers crossed,,gonna put the tank back on and hope it still functions!

Mine WAS the BUTTON, no fooling. Contacts looked like pitted points from dad's old Pontiac. New button on the way, Old button now "custom" and working.

I did a new button too, the old killswitch housing and inner bits were 'what the bird left on the rock'!, mostly tho,,starter relay,,as involved with non existing side stand safety design flaw. No parts needed,,some parts need removed!
I gotta do tires next!,,,that'll take me all danged day tomorrow!
