I have to agree. It is a bit of over kill.
The owner has done a very good job on her. Bike is very nice for what has been done. You can see what he was going for.
Every rider sets up a bike the way there minds eye see's it.....this is he's....it is nice.

Check this out. I was several miles up a box canyon north of Moab with my son when I just knew I could climb this dune. Was going great until my loose chain jumped on the rear sprocked and siezed it hard. 5 miles from the Jeep in ankle deep sand. We rode out on his CRF230 and were able to retrieve it after dark. Then we went for pizza and beer. Love this pic.

That's a great photo! Thanks for sharing it with us.

I've got to ask. Was the slider installed in the bottom of the chain guide?

Holy cow man! That's pretty awesome! Not awesome to be stuck, but it got stuck in a cool position!

Spud

The slider is in the guide, I'm pretty sure that sand got between the too loose chain and rear sprocket and caused it to jump one tooth. As I looked at from the side, about halfway around the rear sprocket, there was an extra link protruding rearward. That was new to me. Anyway, the chain was so tight that the wheel would not turn. When we made it out, pushing it on pavement turned the wheel enough to allow that kink out. We rode Hells Revenge/Slickrock bike trail the next day with no problems (after tightening it up a bit).

One minute going like hell, the next, silence. I slid off the seat, turned off the gas and took the pic. For whatever reason it wouldn't start after this, but fired right up the next day.

It's still running 10,000+ miles later.

Good luck and have a great trip!
The manual is very unclear on this item. In my 93 parts book the tube is not shown on the clutch cover parts list. For some reason it is included with the clutch parts list? later parts list have it with the side cover items. My service manual only states to replace the O ring with out telling you what item has the O ring.

Regards the O ring, I am running a used O ring as well. It looks like as long as the tube is there not too much of the pump dispalcement does not get to the engine. The tube is a good fit in the pump and clutch cover. I can't see it leaking much. The O ring must be insurance.

Clutch Cover Gasket

Can anyone verify that this is the correct Moose Racing gasket to replace the factory gasket p/n 11394-MY2-621 ???

http://www.powersportsuperstore.com/...tm?Click=35177

And has anyone used the Moose gasket? Good, bad, ugly? It would be nice to pay $5 instead of $30...

I am using one now. It has not giving me any problems in 2000 miles. Just make sure you remove all the old gasket.When you remove the clutch cover lookout for a dowel that sits on the oil pump.

Just an FYI, I don't know how close to you these are but you can buy pure Gas at a few stations in Seattle...

For the rest of you, just click on your state.
Thanks for the advice, and also for the gasoline station information. I see that they even have an app for this. Very cool.

As I said earlier, most marine fuel docks will sell pure gasoline as well. For some reason Cenex also has it. I have the following choices (only a 20 minute ride from my place):

Poulsbo CENEX 87 Chs Inc 20370 Viking Way Nw
Poulsbo UNBRANDED 87 Port Of Poulsbo Marina

Drain the carb and fuel tank. I will drain the carb, shut off the petcock. I like the other suggestions about filling the tank with pure gasoline, but add a stabilizer.

Disconnect the battery. Check

Due to the humidity, fog the engine to keep rust from occuring in the cylinder. Ummm. How do I do this? Do you mean spray the engine with something like WD40??

Plug the tailpipe to keep insects and moisture out. Check. Great idea.

Cover the airbox intake to keep mice, insects and moisture out. Check. Actually, mice/squirrels are a real problem here, and they love to chew through wiring.

Put mouse poison containers out and insect repellent around the bike. Check

Put a cover over/around it.

Put a couple of locks in the discs. Check

A big lock to go around anything near it.

Get a big mean dog to tie to the shed. Have geese instead. They were good enough to warn the Romans of the Visigoths, right?


Thanks a bunch, MentalGuru
