At my age I'm more concerrned with stopping than going. Was messing
around in the garage last night and put the caliper off an SV650 onto the KLR.
Ever see a KLR do a stoppie? Me either. But it was an improvement.

I have some more stuff for sale for anyone interested....

All bike makes

SOLD Renthal Fatbar CRF High Bend handlebars in black. A little taller than stock about 1" or so. Asking $50, costmetically appear brand new...

GPS

Complete Garmin eTrex HXC Vista GPS with complete Raam Mount, includes 24K map. This has been my off road GPS for the last 2 years, great GPS that works pretty well just buying something more expensive with more features... $150..

KTM Parts

SOLD Complete Seat Concepts 08-11 seat Tall, black with gripper top and orange stitching just a couple rides on it. Complete installed on factory KTM pan. Asking $140. Close to brand new with just a couple rides, no rips or tears. Just a little too tall for my liking I guess I prefer a regular height seat even though I'm tall. It is comfy!

.46 Racetech fork springs for all 48mm open cartridge forks. Part number is FRSP 435146 Should fit all open cartridge forks 2003-current, and definitely all KTM "big bikes" (450, 525, 530, etc) 2003-2011.

Utah Trials Events. 5-4 Jordan River.5-18 Delta-right in town.6-1 Trials school at Elberta. Great chance to learn from the experts or give trials a go if you have never tried it. Lunch will be provided.If you have never tried trials my description is instead of scaring the crap out of yourself at 50 mph on an off road bike you scare the crap out of yourself at 5 mph on a trialer. See ya there.

Pissed

Being that time of year again for riding to begin in earnest, thought I would do a little spring spiffing up of the dirt bike.

Had the Ape's exhaust ceramic coated by Rukse coatings here in SLC. Did their 1600deg. high temp black on the two headers, and silencer, and went with bright silver for the exhaust finishers and under seat heat shield.



Yes, Aprilia has the sweetest exhaust of any dirt bike (at least the '07 & '08's do). But she can be a bumm toaster. Looking forward to seeing a reduction in under seat temps wit the new mods.

I talked with Infidel... er, Walrus... er, the guy with too many bike and too much time on his hands. Sunday ride is on. Meet at the Einstein Bagel shop on Wasatch blvd in Olympus cove at 9.

We will head to 5 mile and make our way down to Eureka/cherry creek area and back. Big ass dirt bikes are welcome and any skill set should be fine for this ride. Come one... Come all... We'll have a ball.

I've heard of you fellows and am very concerned if this will be an LDS friendly ride?
