    Think I solved my practice area problem. After checking out my buddies property decided I can make up a pretty good track on it and even be able to mix in some jumps and stuff.. Best part is only about 35 minutes away

    The video only shows about 1/2 or 2/3 of the property I have available to use. Its on 3 separate levels so i can work in some loops and hill climbs. :clap

    After I got back from southwick. I pulled the rear shock and sent it out to REP for a going over. While waiting for it to return I decided to go over the bike.

    Rear wheel bearings were shot only a year old, the hub is worn so the seals let water in.

    Needs rear brakes

    Pulled carb to check reeds, intake flange had some cracking.. Ordered new one

    Foot pegs got adjusted so that my feet can reach pedals

    New gear shifter

    fixed broken wire to voltage regualtor

    Adjusted bars to better position

    Installed new grips while doing so discovered throttle cable was about to break which led to me discovering throttle housing was cracked.

    Still need to replace weeping clutch master but I am over budget this week.

    Parts that were supposed to show up 2 days ago haven't
    Parts that were supposed to show up via UPS today didn't
    Parts that are supposed to show up Monday havent been shipped yet

    Tuxedo Ridge HS 8 days away...

    God an e start woulda saved me 2-5 minutes each lap just from the time spent with me trying to get enough energy to kick it. Probably woulda got another minute or 2 just because I would have had more energy to twist the throttle and hang on
