Watch out on those 450x valves. The intakes may be near the limit and require new ones from kibblewhite. You are welcome to bring it over to my garage and we can dive in one evening. Our sister 450x's would enjoy some time together too. I have heat in the garage and shims (though as trackhead said having your own set is a cheap investment).

Question Another thing to consider...

At our altitude the power output of the 440 should still be less than the stock 400cc at sea level, which theoretically, the transmission was designed for, right??

Pilo,
thanks for the offer. I'd really love to check your 450x out! See if you have any other tips and tricks that I haven't already done on my bike.

What's your schedule like for the next week or weekend?

This is weird...

Very strange, but this was in my local paper this morning:



You don't think this is anyone we know do you??

I had to pee twice trying to finish reading that. I found using my
grand daughter's diapers as a "Mini Depends" gives me a few extra
seconds and stops the trouser tracks.

Is that too much information?

It's just about time to bring the Rhino down from the lake and
start making geriatric tracks at 5 Mile.

I'm buying one of these this summer. 1400lbs, 700cc motor, manual transmission, locking differential, heated cab, etc, etc.......tracks (Tatou snow tracks) are pricey at $3600.

That has YOU written all over it.

We will then have a rescue vehicle in the ADV pool. Cool.

Yeah, start out with just the rig, then get tracks before next winter. I'm kinda psyched to go putt, putt around Bear Lake. I'll have a baby seat in it, so........that's how I'm getting spousal approval.

I never worry about that. I just say "this is how it is bitch".


After that I wake up, shower and go to work.

There have been a few rumors about you being a little whipped.

But I know you're a couple of little love birds....
