It is worth noting that the big bikes might not make it over Rydalch pass due to snow. If that's the case, I'll just head back via the Skull Valley Rd and i-80.

Delle at 11AM works for me! I could meet somewhere in the valley if y'all want to ride there as a pack(safety in numbers).
I went through Rydalch pass 2 weeks a go. It was a bit adventerous.

For Sun. I was thinking of NOT going over Rydalch but just keep heading south when the road branches off over Rydalch and eventually wind our way to Dugway on the dirt.

BrShootr, problem is mine is an 07 and you need the Suzuki computer or the aftermarket one. I did the valve clearance inspection late last year and with 20k on it I thought it would be a good thing to do. It isn't like it runs rough though.

So no one takes theirs in anywhere?

Oh really? Ever had snow up to your knees and been riding? Some pretty hard core riders there. Perhaps they all aren't in there 20s, but their hearts are.

I've been riding this since the 70's in the Polar Bear. Probably before you were born.

Why don't you head out around Cedar Fort and Tooele and into Salt Lake Valley with your whatever CC scoot and wait for a couple thousand cruisers/tourers with 1800-1900ccs blow by you like you were standing still. You just "might" have a different perspective (not sure).

You know how much the Salt Lake Motorcycle Club contributes to charity?

Why don't you do some homework before blathering.

I thought 2 wheelers were brothers?

So please explain, what's your problem?

He rides a Buell. Leave him alone. He has enough to deal with.

Speaking of the Polar Bear, I think it's the only group ride pins
I have.

Hey, I'll freely admit that I've been one of the clowns at these parades!

I learned that it's not for ME.

And yes I ride a Buell...and a KTM and a Honda and a Kawasaki.. and whatever other two wheeled creation I may want to drag home. So what?

Lucky for Eric Buell not enough were sold to make writing an
apology to every owner too big of a deal.

Think about it... who the F#$%@ could I sell it to?

What with you trashing them all over the net and all?

I was just thinking about how the ad might look:

Want to Trade!

Buell XB12X Ulysses for KTM 950 SE.

??????????

I don't think there's a difference between your '07 and my '06. They're the same bike AFAIK.

You might be talking about the valve sensor being adjusted, in which case you'd need a suzuki computer. I've never done that, so I can't tell you where to take your bike to. If you find someone, let me know as I would like to have someone with the computer to adjust my fast idle speed (properly).

As far as your TBS, you can do w/ a simple manometer and you're fine. The only tool listed in the Suzuki manual for that procedure is the manometer, so you might as well do it yourself.

Personally, I'd just do the TBS and forget about adjusting the sensor. It's not even in your recommended scheduled maintenance anyway!
