Just caught up with this and so far I'm amazed and jealous all at once.

On the rear flat: do you have the valve stem nut cranked all the way down to the rim? If so, back it out a half dozen turns or so. When you rolled on the gas in that tunnel you likely spun the tire on the rim, taking the tube with it, and if the nut was tight on the rim that's what pulled the valve stem out. If you leave some space the stem will go so far and lock at a 30* angle, so you'll have some wiggle room before it rips out. Done it on my dirt bikes for years, the nut just keeps the stem from disappearing inside the rim.

Hope you're having a great time in Morocco!

I think the center stand is great, but it drags every once in while due to the fact that I don't have as much ground clearance anymore on my KLR. What do you guys think?

Hi Noah, Good idea to loosen the stem nut but, just as importantly- Do you have Rim Locks installed? They clamp the tire to the rim and may stop your tube stem ripping out again and are very necessary when the tire pressure is reduced to prevent the tire rotating on the rim! They are not expensive and will save the pain of road side tire tube replacement.

Loving the photo's by the way, and also my NEX 5N that I got after playing with yours - you have a great eye for the right photo - now I need to ride with you again!

I always keep the nut loosened. I don't like a rim lock because they will vibrate your teeth out on the road. near impossible to balance.

If you're not using Slime or similar you could try Dyna Beads with rim locks. The beads will balance the wheels. I've used them on other bikes and they worked (didn't use them with rim locks though, so vibes might still be a problem).

I figured you did but just wanted to throw that out there just in case.

Thanks man. We are in the Sahara. HUGE sand storm going on right now. I am not sure how we have Wifi but i'm not complaining. Morocco is crazy. That is the only way I can explain it. The riding reminds me a lot of the Mojave desert/Death valley.

Mr. Goldfish, take a look at the following thread. It is the vendor thread for the Enduro Star and has all the info you need.

I have tried to balance out a rimlock with a tube of DynaBeads. It doesn't work. The rimlock is just too heavy.

The only way I have found to balance out a rimlock is with another rimlock 180 from the first one and then a little added weight for the valve stem.

Noah, Italy looks fantastic. Hope you enjoy the desert and don't have to venture very far to find Ms. Morocco for your signature.

Hey Noah,

Congrats on living the dream and pushing on in the face of adversity. A lot has happend in the months since you passed through Vancouver.

Hope you are having a blast in Morocco.

Thank you for the Italy pics. It's a side of the country that I doubt many have seen before.

Looking forward to more updates.

Cord
