Finally made it back on the bike today and managed about 80 miles after spending the last two months fighting a pinched nerve in my neck and inflamed/pulled/sprained shoulder and arm. Lat and shoulder blade tightened up a little but doesn't feel too bad now. Hopefully will be back full strength in a few weeks.

The day after I find http://www.beemerboneyard.com/carbtune4col.html under the Christmas tree with a note that reads, "From Gooonie with love." I'd like the storage case too, thanks.

EDIT: Nevermind the carbtune. Grok is back to selling Harmonizers.I'd rather have one of those.

Splitting the bike to lube the splines should be about the same as on mine, tedious and time consuming, but not all that hard. The rest should be pretty straight forward, but I don't have a tool to synch the throttle bodies.

Perhaps you remember the earthquake lookin road down near Peebles?:


Well disappointingly, they've got it about completely repaired. All the bad spots are smoothed over and waiting for pavement, and they are working on reinforcing another spot:


We hit Pike APV area while we were down there too. Not the best season for big bikes; it was slicker than hell, still fun though.


Oh, and 50 and sunny Thursday. Anyone up for something? Wayne maybe? Danville? Or a big bike ride?

The home-made manometers work really well, and are incredibly easy to build....just some tubing on either side of a yard stick with some 2-cycle oil in them. You can do a double or 4-tube, for $3 in materials. If there's just two to check on the K100, I have one already made on a nice backing board with a hanger you're welcome to.

They're more accurate than mercury, btw.

Well I was able to work some deals to sell my vintage Honda’s and the KLR towards a new bike. Sorry Buildit, looks like I will not be buying your YZ. Thanks for the info you sent me and good luck finding a home for it. I didn’t really plan on buying something new but sometimes things just come together in such a way that it makes justifying buying something shiny & new feasible, or at least close enough for me to rationalize it is feasible. My decision to buy new was definetly swayed when the dealership let me take a couple of the bikes out for test rides.

It’s been a little over 3 weeks since my “mishap” on the KLR and I saw the ortho today. He said my separated shoulder was recovering well ahead of schedule so as long as I can get out of work by 6:30 PM today my plan is to get down to the dealership to sign the paperwork and ride home on a new WR250R. Hardest part now will be to resist taking the bike off road until my shoulder heals some more.

Congrats on the new wrr. My KLR gets little off-road use since I got my WRR three years ago. -Mike
