I have heard submarines are really hard on wheel bearings.
Perhaps not so much the machines themselves, but the captains of said submarines.

I have a 48mm seal driver you can use, not sure what yours are.

I'm not sure what you need or what you are calling the base. I used a mirror clamp off of Suzuki BK street bike. It is threaded on the top and replaces the half clamp on a stock lever perch. That's how I fit a mirror on my WR426

Alright. Here's the bookmark for the kids gear thread.

Here's what I have to get rid of-


- there's a couple things not in the pic in the link as well...

Here's my smugmug page with individual pics and sizing info on the gear.

You are free to take anything you can use. What you don't want, I'll list up on this thread so other locals can call dibs on anything. Then, whatever is left will go on the kids gear thread.

It's a date then...(in a strictly slightly homo-erotic way....)

I may or may not get my new tire spooned on by then, there's still some slivers of tread left on the old 270...My inherant cheapnees makes it hard to cope with taking off a tire that's still "good".

Thats the one. I figured the 300 miles last sunday would kill it for sure. I got a flat Tuesday after work and was going to change it but the hole in the tube was real small so I patched it and put the tire back on. Thats the 4th rear tire since I bought the WR in sept. figure I better get all i can out of it.

this is what I need, the left mirror is mounted this way, the right is threaded into a (now broken) boss on the controls. unfortunatly, I don't really have enough room on my bars to fit anouther mount, I might have to move my GPS.

I'm out for Sunday. Grilling a big farewell lunch for my family, as a bunch of them are headed to Germany next week. I did get out for a bit over 300 miles today. Went and explored this big green blob between Jackson and Hunington:

Pretty disappointed though. Couldn't find anything old/unmaintained. Lots of pavement, and what gravel I could find was deep and smooth. Tons of dead end roads that go to people's houses. This one was missing a bridge:


The funnest part of the ride was passing through laurelville on the way home. I went to a known dirt road on the easier end of the spectrum, and simply went up and down the thing gaining confidence. By the last time, I had it in traction control 2, and could slide the ass end around every turn. Goose it in the straights and you're instantly going 60+! Lay on the brakes all you want and ABS slows you confidently. It's like cheating. Way way more fun than should be allowed! I decided to quit while I was ahead.

Caught a nail somewhere. Back tire looked a little low in Circleville and was a lot low once I hit Columbus.


I had the pump and plug kit with me, but I made it home before having to deal with it. Got it plugged and filled. If its still over 40psi in the morning I'll be good to go!

Anyone interested in a little 250+ mile adv style big bike exploration ride? I have an interesting route planned out but who knows what we'll find? I'll be on the strom so nothing too much worse than gravel.

We can start off rt33 or Mount Sterling area depending on who wants to go.

The bearings are good, still, with 19k on them; I just figured it is cheap peace of mind. I would hate to get sion'd in the middle of nowhere for lack of preventative maintenance.

I'm jealous. Wish I could go...maybe next year. On the way back from Tennessee, I rode right through the Renfro Valley. Even from the interstate, you could see trails all over the place...looked like awesome country for off-roading.

Be sure to get lots of pics and video...I'll wanna see em...even if no one else does.
