I put a dynajet kit on mine years ago. It got rid of the low speed stumble. I can't begin
to remember the settings. Just that I spent a whole afternoon dicking with it to get it right.

You should be leaner at this altitude. Try dropping the main a size or two. From the factory
they are lean on the needle so it may fine at SLC levels.

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.
