Any of y'all taking JVB up on his reduced price Jesse bag deal?

Oh, and My Dad's 'Wing is for sale if any of y'all want a 1500cc Anniv Wing. He's not riding it. Mom needs the $$.

Other than that, I got pics of the house from my little brother. MAN! Did y'all get hammered with the white shit!

Can someone help me do the doohickey?

Got a '05 KLR right before Xmas, needs the doohickey replaced, looking for someone with the tools/and or know-how to help me replace it in the next few weeks so I can go RIDE without the worry of a tensioner failure. A case of ur favorite beer as payment?

And since this is ADV, I expect that to be in the PBR, The Beast, or Old Milwaukee family of finely crafted beers...

BTW- I live in DC but can ride to ??

mnd,

ATV High Bend Bars:




Don't mind MAN OF BLUES or minichub


I was running a set of Tusk ATV High Bend Bars from Rockymountainatv.com
I chose to go that route as opposed to risers in order to save money and be able to comfortably stand on the pegs riding DS.
Picked them up for $16 and they proved crash worthy I did not need to replace any of my cables. They have bar measurements on their site explaining the exact rise and pull. I'd try and mock up the controls to that size approx and see what stretches and what doesn't.

Also will raise your windscreen and put your mirrors in a better spot.

Humm... Looks like more pull-back than I want.

I really just want the "U" the bars make down to the clamp to be deeper, and keep the other angles the same, raising the plane of the hand grips up.

Guess that means risers. Good thing I haven't ordered a new brake line, as I believe the additional height plus routing constraints imposed by the handguards mean a longer line with a more tightly bent banjo fitting.



At least the fork boots worked out.

I thought you were asking for help?

That's not how you get it...


You should have offered Black Label or Schlitz malt liquer...






I can't help you with the Doohicky. I don't even know what part it is or how to fix it...
Better beer will result in better responses!

Take a look at klr650.net, regional > mid atlantic, we're getting a tech day together soonish at my place in springfield, you're welcome to join in

I have doohickey tools and experience, just make sure you have the parts and gaskets.

Speaking of selling . . .

I plan to put my Rev'It Air jacket and my Olympia Patton jacket in the flea market soon. Both are large sizes and in very good condition. I will probably list the Rev'It for $100 and the Olympia for about $75. Figured I'd give the locals first shot, especially if it saves me the hassle of having to ship it. PM me if interested.

Rocketman - I'll check with the wife about the camera. I recently bought her a Canon SLR (Rebel XS?) for her birthday, but I hear good things about that G9.
