Sandstone

That looks like Wilkeson sandstone there. Good ride destination, too.

Gutted the DRZ like a sea bass in an effort to fix the starter clutch and ended up with two outboards torn down too. Got a feeling there gonna be extra parts!

Lets just say this doesn't look like this anymore.



The barn freshness is fading away.

The "Tire Faerie" made a stop also so there is a stack of five tires on the shop floor. None of which go on the 90 which is plugging up the lift.

I also have a pile of Hiem Joints, Tubing, Ohlins and Aluminum Suspension bits for the "WTF" project. Which is on hold til Monkeywife's 90 is a runner.

So many projects, so little time

I'm trying to finish this before the REAL sunshine gets here...



As well as "finishing up" (at least for this summer) my favorite ol' girl



Oh, and the girlfriend's new car needs a few things before it's *really* road ready



Trying to find funds to finish the race boat



And further farkling the Wee for some long trips this summer (if I can actually get time off of work)

They were originally from the F8 (first pic)... as you can imagine, they're trashed. I don't ride offroad, I could never get comfortable.... the only trials riding I do is on this bad boy. I'm pretty sure all the neighbors know her

(pretty sure this one qualifies as a "project" too, even though she's running and riding)

Me ...... I'm about to launch into my 2000 640a to get it ready for the spring time .....

I need to swap out the IMO since it, and my spare, died, so I think I'm going to install a trail tech IMO, or equiv., and work on the damn idle issue it has going on.

I did all the major maintenance over the December holiday break. HUsky and 4T KTM got valves, oil, air filters, a couple new tires. Husky also got Baja Designs tail light assembly and flush moutn signals, heated grips, new front wheel bearings, new brake pads. Old KTM just got cleaned up-- there's nothing to fix, improve, or maintain... just sat there most of last season being bad ass and under-utilized. Actually nothing's bad ass compared to the Kawa flat tracker above in this thread.

More important:
Today, I swapped SM to enduro set up on the Husky. Dualsport ride this weekend!! Whoo hoo! I'm sick of getting my thrills one crappy little urban wheelie at a time on the way to work.

The DT175 is in a constant state of needing something. If it isn't the clutch cable it's the upper throttle cable, if it isn't the upper throttle cable it's the lower throttle cable, if it isn't the lower throttle cable it's the counter sprocket seal, if it's not the counter sprocket seal it's the petcock. I've done all this between thrashing sessions since I bought it in December.

Needs new rear fender, handlebar, and tires, too.

I should also mention that the DT kicks ass.

Luggage rack

I'm working on this guy:



A buddy from another forum made it up so we could post it as a how-to a year or so ago. It's what he calls a "full-case rack" vs the factory 6 pack

Brought it to work today so I can bead blast it this afternoon. I'm going to pick up a small thing of DIY bed liner to see how that looks on it and maybe get that thing mounted up this weekend.

Thanks! The shocks are cheap ebay shocks, made in China probably. They've got to be better than stock though! The seller was ophir4u.
