Operation Moto Dog - Headed To Alaska

Hey All,

Just found out about this Alaska forum and wanted to say hi.

My dog, Baylor, and I are headed to Alaska on a KLR650 hack. We're in Prince George, BC and hope to be up to AK within the next several days.

Keeping track of the adventure here: http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...0#post27085990

And on my website: http://operationmotodog.com/

Would be great to connect with some of you if time/location allows.

Thanks!
Mallory & Baylor

Hey, J&K... I'm sitting in the middle of a hundred or more sidecars in SD. You should be here.

Sounds like an awesome time so far. There are plenty of us here in AK that are along the way ready to lend a helping hand if you need one. Looking forward to seeing your updates and possibly meeting you and Baylor.

If it's not one thing, it's another - Mechanic in Whitehorse?

So drain plug dropped out while I was riding. Put in a spare. Filled with oil and was able continue on. Engine sputtered, but did not seize. Now it has a concerning rattle. Thinking I should take to mechanic and get looked at. Anyone know of a good mechanic in Whitehorse?

Or, do you think there's any way I can make it to Anchorage and the ADV folks there? Would it potentially do more damage or am I already hosed?

And for the whole crazy story, here's the ride report: http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...1074315&page=5

Thank you!

uh-oh..... pull the oil filter out & check it for aluminum. if theres a bunch then the head is probably shot. the right side exhaust cam is that last place to get oil & the first to starve when you run low. the cam galls & starts chewing the journal.... which is the aluminum of the head. if that has happened.... it will need evaluation. you may be able to fix whats there but maybe not. it usually means replacement with a new (serviceable) head. I've fixed a few.
