Also, I need to see a valve adjustment happen on this bad boy, so I'll provide food/beer to any willing instructor. It couldn't be much different than the XR, but it's comforting to have an owner show the ropes.

Better question is what can you leave behind. Just pull the engine in your garage, put it back in, and pack all those tools you used in your pack.

so just like an XR! I was a bit scared after seeing all Harcus's tools and parts! He even has XR parts now that he's riding a pumpkin! I was hoping that i only needed 2 hex's and a tire spoon. shucks.

Frog: great ride on the b1K! let me know when you tear that bad boy down so I can come watch!

Thanks. It was a long way.

I wont be tearing into that bike for a long time it didnt suck any silt and still runs really strong. I will build my hybrid bike this winter but hopefully that will be all the building/repairs I have to do.

Before Baja I went through my toolkit and made sure everything I was carrying was necessary and a lot of the stuff that comes in the stock ktm kit you dont need. I'll look at what I had in my kit and let you know.

TMJ Hijack.

Any of you 'tards had experience with TMJ pain / issues? I'm looking for a referral. . . a specialist I can see.

PM me if you've had any experiences--good or bad.

Thanks.

Pluric calls it "blowers cramp"... Not sure if that makes him an expert or not, just someone with experience.

As long as you don't swallow I hear it's not gay.???? Gulp, opps.

Besides Retro specifically asked about TMJ. Too Many Jackoffs. I believe our resident Vernal
expert should jump in and 'give a hand' on that one. I don't mean to turn this into lube battle,
but Retro if you are having pain it could be what you are using.. or not.

If it comes full circle to wet noodles I'll jump back in.
