Got me some nice shiny new (to me) excel wheels from a fellow inmate who's moving sticks to Canada.

I'd add a strap through the handle going upwards.. the strap on the box will slide with offroad bouncing.
Put a layer of masking tape (or adhesive mylar) on anything the jug is touching to rub against... then just peal it off when you are home.
Carry a couple of extra straps so if you drop the bike and break those you have backups.

Hope this helps

Leaking radiator and had a look at the expansion tank.

How did you clean the expansion tank? I rebuild my water pump today, and the expansion tank looks exactly the same.

My KTM got a visit from Dirtbro's KTM today.

Mine is in 234508 pieces and it is 61 degrees outside right now.. so he had to drop by and rub it in

Check this out... he just bought this thing, 2006 with 2000 miles on it. The thing is perfect... looks like it is right off the showroom floor

6 years old and still has original tires with original little nubbies on them!


...of course the first thing he did was call Craig and order some carbon fiber bling


"Neener Neener I'm going riding"


I'm sitting here at the computer doing taxes instead

Well then I expect you to come visit and clean the dirt off.

I cleaned mine before I sent it in

200 mile ride and a quick nap. (Leaked fuel out of the carbs so I was a little worried on the re-start but fired up with a little throttle)



Not near as hard to get up as I expected, was on a signifcant hill but pulled it up by the bars.

Here's a pic I got from my first shakedown. Don't worry, I won't start posting every picture I take, I just thought this was a good one. 50 miles on backroads and I was very surprised at how amazing it runs. Soooo happy.

I took off the crappy Touratech side stand foot and put on a real steel Sasquatch setup. Much nicer and looks and feels a lot beefier. Nice steel plates. It is bigger and heavier.

Don't get me wrong, the Touratech one works, but the aluminum bends. I had to shim it multiple times and it was always coming loose and vibrating. I could never get it tight after the first month of ownership.

I figured since I am in the northwest, a Sasquatch would be better than a Camel.
