Looks like $1000 service, or you could save some money and apply this liberally:

What surprised me most was all the seals and gaskets on the rocker cover were replaced and charged which came to around £50. That's the main one running round the perimeter and each bolt has its own seal. Now, I remember back in the 80s my Yamaha XJ650 & 900 had reusable rubber gaskets. WTF has happened over the last 30 years that we now have to replace them every 12K? Triumph FAIL!

Had a little fun with the XC this weekend! Found out it's not a real good idea to hand with a bunch of KTM's and DRZ's out in the woods, but the damage wasn't too bad.
She started out pretty clean

Add a little water....

and a little dirt/clay/gravel

and you come out of the tunnel looking like this


Great trip! but I put it softly into a bank cause I lost the rearend. I think a new back tire and some better hand guards are in order.
800 miles and I still like it!

Pre-load Adjuster

Couple weeks ago I went to max pre-load as I was taking a trip 2-up. This past weekend, I tried to adjust it back down again as I was riding solo and it was very very stiff to turn, so much so that I stopped as I didn't want to force it.

When I got home I gave it a blast with WD and it seemed to help - there was then something like a label or something that seemed to be stuck in the threads ? I got rid of that and now it turns a lot easier but I appear to have last my clicks Tried a couple times but it just doesn't click any more.

So...is that a big issue (sure it's not) but the bigger problem is adjusting the pre-load. What does 1 click actually mean - 360 degrees, 180 degrees or ??

Cheers

It's a sticker that got in your way. They should click 2 times per turn. So, one full turn = 2 clicks

Super, thanks Rob - I thought it was a sticker or something.

So no issue with it NOT clicking you think ? I tried for about 30 mins and I couldn't hear/feel a click at all.

There's probably pieces of the sticker still messing up the clicks. Mine only clicks once per turn for the same reason. Just count the turns. It's still doing the same job. I think the book says 24 clicks out which is 12 full rotations.

Yes, 2 clicks per turn.

Mine was doing the sticking thing too but I think it was the detent, not a sticker. I just turned it quickly past the detent and it kept going. The fit of the adjust screw is very loose in its holder, and I think the detent gets sticky. I don't have a fix, but did notice the same thing.

I figured the lack of clicks wasn't really a big issue

Final question on this - does it have to be on the center stand to adjust - I'm thinking no since not every bike has one

No need to unload the rear suspension to adjust it.

Home made hand guard extenders and aluminium rack. ADV lights and a tool tube. And of course the "New" Blue colour. ARDcases have gone onto the racks now but I do not have a picture to hand.newbaby with most farkles in place. The racks are the H&B ones as is the tank protector
