Oh.. speaking of biotches... Hack... what's the word on the LCW?
Mr. Egg is back in the general area.
I got the swingarm off without loosening the mount, but it wasn't going back on until the mount was loosened.
Now all I need are the parts from Cogent.....
I don't remember exactly how long it took to get mine but when they came I remember thinking ,man that was fast. It was less than 2 weeks.When I ordered them it was FEB. and he told me it was his busy time of the year and it still took less than 2 weeks.
WTF:eek1 How the heck did that happen????
Probably a flaw in the casting and/or an over torqued mounting bolt.
The way it's broke, I wouldn't worry about it. Just don't over torque the bolt. Not much that can be done with it anyway besides replace the case or sell it.
Hey Bob. Sorry, I have been busier than a one legged man in an ass kickin contest. Might make it to the embroidery place tomorrow.
Tom here's another option,
Better step it up brother! My bald spot is getting sun burned!
I don't have the fragment that chipped off - that must have been lost when the damage was first done. I suspect it was that time I hurt my foot on that water crossing - I forget what ride that was. Camp Cow Crap? Bent the shit out of my panniers. Also bent the shit out of my happy trails engine guards. Bent the shit out of my foot too, but that got better.
Tom if you are looking to lighten up the KLR, I don't think that is going to remove much weight.
JB Weld would attach the chipped off chunk, JB Weld Stick you can make a new chunk .
JB Weld would only be a cosmetic fix, it will break right off when the mount is tightened.
There is no easy way to fix it or really any reason to attempt to do so. There appears to be enough of it left to suffice. Torque the bolt to spec and forget it.
If it bothers him, the only way to really fix it is weld it up and re-machine it, or replace the case half. Either one would involve completely disassembling the engine. It would be a lot easier and cheaper to sell it.
If it was mine, I'd put it back together and ride it.
I'll keep it. Really had no intention of trying to fix it.
...and if it was yours Wayne, you'd sell the POS and buy a DRZ-400s
I'm embarrassed to post this but I just watched a video of bikers in New York. I watched what was posted so can only comment on what I saw. I believe the driver was acting on his safety for him and his family. I hope the rider that posted video turns over all the video to authorities. Sorry to vent but this made me disgusted to be associated because I ride a motorcycle.

You can vent all you want in the basement.
Gang Riding Stupidity --> Biker Killed--> SUV Driver beaten into coma->well maybe not
Some of the parts were missing from the front suspension mod, so I had to improvise:
Wonder if Conti make a TKC-80 sized for a wheelbarrow
Actually the parts are scheduled for delivery tomorrow!
The Elkton (MD) Moose Lodge has an all you can eat crabfest Saturday.
...sure has been dead in these parts since Hack jumped the shark on his bicycle.....
You know Tom the KLR might handle better that way...
I has been a bit busy of late. Not now though, furloughed. Bad part is that while I have much more free time, I will have no $$ to use during that free time.
I am taking the day off because I can't wait to put the mods on the KLR. Also can't wait for the Fedex truck to deliver the parts (sometime) today, so I had them hold the box at the fedex depot in New Castle so I can pick it up at 8AM.
New Cogent Dynamics Shock (sprung for a fat guy) with some kind of fancy bearing that makes preload adjustment easier. New fork springs up front (also super-sized) and Cogent's Dynamic Damper Adjuster emulators. Spacers and fresh fork oil!
