Bitches,

I have confirmed that I have days off in September; the 7th through the 19th, to be specific. I am considering a ride to Bend, OR as there is a little KTM gathering going on at that time, but could easily be persuaded to hang out with scum like you instead. I am very open to any ideas for rides at that time and can bring the 300, the SFE (Super Fucking Enduro), the soon to be picked up 500 XCW, or all three.

Awaiting your reply.

Sincerely,

The handsomest Utard in Lubbuttock, TX

I could probably roll out the BRP and ride a day on each side of a weekend...

Butt seriously....

so i changed the rear wheel brake pads on the Vstrom and now my brake lights are permanently on... do i need to take fluid out? if so, what's the best way to do that. I've bled lines and I've got to say that it's not my favorite wrenching operation.

Kevin, there's usually an adjusting bolt on the brake pedal to move the engagement point.

Geez how thick were the new pads??? Make sure the brakes aren't dragging. Maybe bleed a little
fluid out. 8mm bleeder on the slave cylinder. Just don't let it suck air in. Quick open and close once
or twice should do it. I do have a speed bleeder if you want to replace the oil. Only takes a few minutes.

If you have this style rear brake light switch just turn it to take some spring pressure off the switch.

Pretty bummed, first went on a crazy adventure a couple weeks ago trying to find the end of a trail that connect Brighton Estates (up in Guardsman's) to the midway/AF canyon trails. At the end the trail disappeared and we basically had to hike a bike for a mile or two and it was steep as hell and the bikes went over probably a dozen times or so in the process.

Then after a dump there must have been some oil that got into the cyclinder somehow and it appears I lost my rings I guess. Bike starts and runs, but... 50 PSI on the cycl. Oil was coming out of the exhaust. Bummer because there aren't a whole lot of miles on this motor, maybe 2000 or so since the last rebuild? Oddly still starts and runs but definitley burning a ton of oil too..

Anyway, questions are:

- Does anyone have the top end KTM RFS tools I could borrow.

- Carb also seems to have stripped out its fuel screw because a POS aluminum Tusk knob. Do not buy a Tusk aluminum air/fuel knob for your KTM, always buy brass.

- This is an 02 which is good but has less top end than the later ones. Anyone have a '03 to '07 525 engine lying around, even if it needs a rebuild?

- Not sure if I should upgrate to a 41mm carb in the process, I have a '39 on this 02 but the later ones had the 41.

- Not sure if folks have recommendations on parts and/or where to machine locally. I'll def be finding some stainless valves at bare min and imagine the head and cyl will need some work.

- Considering pulling the bike completely apart and possibly repowdercoating the frame. Not sure if that is overkill...

All ears on recommendations...

I think it all depends on how much fun you can handle. Since defection to the south I am certain you are out of practice, physically n mentally. I would recommend you leave all 3 MCs at home & bring your Schwin so you can retone your decrepit body.

Or a broken ring. If oil got into the cylinder while in an upside down position it could have over pressurized & cracked a ring. Anyway, it needs to have the top popped off & inspected before more damage occurs.

IMHO, that is...

Shit happens...
