Thumb Frugal DS helmet!

I'm sure most of you KLR owners (I used to be one) and other frugal-minded folk already know this, but the G-Max DS helmet is pretty sweet for $85!

Talking It lives!

Got the bike out for the commute today and it was pretty good! First time I've been able to ride since Christmas due to health, weather, and mechanical issues.

It was great to be on two wheels...

Question pilot screw o-ring?

So in messing with my bike lately, I discovered my pilot screw o-ring has disintegrated. I'm assuming this contributes to it not idling smoothly lately.

Anyone know where I can pick up a new one?

Is the XT600 shock a bolt-in replacement or did you have to modify anything to get it to fit? Does it matter what year XT for either bike? Looks like that could be a pretty cheap solution.
