    You have clearly been taking wrenching lessons from the mrt school of maintenance.

    Ummm.... I vote for more surgical methods. Tape a tiny magnet on the end of the boroscope.


    Try renting borrowing or buying a boro-scope. Lowes Homedepot pepboys sell them.

    That video is just how the assembly went, till I dropped the clip.

    Pulled the stator cover and there it was stuck to the rotor magnet :gdog

    That sucks.from watching that video you can have the whole thing apart in 5 min.lol
    I have access to one of those camera things at my work I could get my hands on.think you are better off with a maginet and some shaking as long as clip is magnetic and not stuck in oil.my luck I would take it all apart again to find clip missed hole and got stuck somewhere else. Good luck

    Ken.. if you have more videos to post to youtube (do it!) you can just let us know on here and one of us will be able to embed it.. Or just post the url for the video and let people find it that way.. here's one you put up on youtube that I don't think was posted here yet:

    another month off work still eh? I can relate... Not currently; but I had some time off due to an injury a while back.. If you go back a ways in the thread I'm sure there's mention of my faux pas.

    We all like watching videos though. Especially if there's a chance any of us are in them for even a moment!! Post em up if you're looking for something to do to pass the time.

    Riding in December has it's own challenges. A lot of times the puddles have a half inch of ice on them - just enough to roll out to the middle before you break through. That's a good time to let the big heavy guys go first. You can get stuck pretty good in those big puddles.

    Seeing water and mud freeze to your fender when it's clearly above freezing temperatures is an interesting phenomenon. The wind chill literally causes the splashes to freeze up nicely.

    There were some frozen puddles on this ride from last winter..

    <iframe src="http://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/iw7f_dGSnCQ?rel=0" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="480" width="853"></iframe>

    I get taken out by the ice at the end of one of the bigger puddles in that video, as seen in the intro.. A bunch of noobs on dirt bikes..

    hopefully we will have weather for the next camp-n-ride like we had in that video! Rob, were you riding the klx250 on that ride???

    Yes, that's me on the 250, with supermoto tires. The big chunks of ice were tricky indeed. Fun ride.

    Ice on the puddles doesn't scare me as much as sleeping in a tent in CT in December.:lol3 You guys are whacky.

    It won't be the first time. Honestly, its not bad when you burn a whole truckload of wood. I'm certainly not going to do it if its going to be too cold, but if the temps dip a little below freezing at night, its not bad.

    There have been high quality zero degree down bags on Sierra Trading Post for the last few weeks.. sleeping in a tent with a zero degree bag is no issue.. as long as it doesnt get any cooler than 15 degrees :D
