KTM LC4 (640) Thread Index

REVISION DATE: January 20, 2014

This is a thread index for many of those great posts by La Familia, with some crap thrown in for balance. This is by no means definitive, so PLEASE reply to this thread with your favorites threads, or suggestions on removing threads, etc, and we may append, edit, delete, and so forth. I thought this would give those who redundantly point to this thread or that one an easier route. Please note that all External Links are marked with the following red note. External Links! AdvRider is not responsible for anything at these links; proceed at your own risk. As before, newest additions will be in Orange for a spell.

NOTE: If you can't find a thread you are looking for, please post your request to this thread and we will try and help you find it. If there is no existing thread to join, then start a new thread in Thumpers to fill the void.

One tip for searching this thread, try using your web browser’s page search function (usually pushing CTRL and F at the same time will bring it up, or try the Edit menu on the toolbar) - it will save you some time. A suggestion for searching Thumpers is this: CLICK HERE and then add your search terms to the search and Google will only search this site. It is a great tool for searching this site with 3 letter terms.

Also, please be aware that this is not a FAQS page. Although QA/QC edits are ongoing in an attempt to not lead anyone astray, people should use their best judgment and if in doubt ask questions! Of course you should ask your specific question in a different thread... the point of this thread was not to make questions unnecessary; the point is to help end the relentless search for "those" thread links. However, there are some "How-To's" that are very well respected and I think could be considered FAQS. Those highly regarded how-to-do-it threads are now in their own section at the beginning of this thread. If you disagree with an inclusion, submit your complaint to the committee.

Oh yeah, and one other thing that might help us help you: Hi n00b, welcome to ADVrider. Got a question do ya?

So here is Part Juan of the index:

Now please join me in a warm round of applause for warewolf:

who just finished reformatting this portion of the index. As you can see, not only are the links embedded in the thread titles (easy on the eyes no?), but he has also taken the trouble to detail each thread title when there was a list of threads. I appreciate the help!

Jesus Mary and Josephine... Now we know who the catalog/organize/index guy is amongst us. Come on up to Wooooshington Meat, I have some unruly blades of grass that need to be put in their place.

Is markjenn's original bearing guide in there... or did I miss it?

Nevermind... found it.
So... how's tricks?

I'll see you around thanksgiving creeper. Sorry but that's the earliest I have a spot in my travelling lawn service.

Thanks Arch, I hope this helps out. I always thought an index would be a good thing. Hope I can still edit this thing as the other worthy threads show up!

Please, everybody if you think of additions (there will be some things I will add when I find them), or organization changes, or even subtractions (there is some silly stuff in there) then please sound off!

Just do revision dates at the top of the thread and color highlight the added links. As they become old links, remove the highlight... that way, we'll always know what's freshy fresh.

One suggestion to anyone with a possible contribution... PM it to Meat for review, that way, he can be the final arbiter for inclusion in the list and the link will always be in the first post.

Good job Meat... good job.
So... how's tricks?

Step away from the PC.. Go riding or somethang...

I am forced to augment my workload at work. Not ideal, but here is some good.

I was to ride today, but my riding buddies backed out and my mother wanted to hang out with me rather than go to a baby shower with mrs. pop and mini-meat so there wasn't even solo riding. tommorow is more family stuff on the other side so... hopefully next weekend!

but i do need to get away from PCs. wanna go riding?
