    Sweet! I have 6 french rolls (cuz they're bigger & you can stuff more goods in them), a whole white onion that I'll chop up, Mustard, a clove of garlic, and an avocado. I'll also pick up a sixer of some crafty beer. We will probably need 1 more pack of buns/rolls & whatever anyone else wants to bring to snack on. :jkam :super

    Thanks, JPaccassi! Most excellent spot for a BBQ!

    Nice to see (hear) a 2-stroke out there, too!

    I'll be down for a few weeks. Doing the top end on my 400. The RFS KTM's are known for soft intake valves and 400 hours is about the limit for the stock valves. Mine were out of adjustment at 380hrs so off she comes.

    Some photos of the engine internals for anyone interested. You can see how much deeper the intakes sit inside the head than the exhausts.

    Cylinder and piston look great, I probably don't need to do anything, but I will be getting them checked.

    You have until Black Friday to get it running. Or you may be forced to ride a Honda or something strange like that..

    I've got an xr100 sitting in the garage. If adrian is right and smaller is better this must be the holy grail!!!

    It would be fun but I'd be afraid of breaking it. I'm waaaay to big for the suspension.
