    What if any were the symptoms leading up to the failure?

    He said it just died, like it ran out of gas. Time to carry an extra fuel pump.

    That's what I was affraid of, I had hoped that there had been some sort of precursor.

    Agreed. I will order one next week.

    NW: please let us know what's broken on the bike when you find out. I'm guessing it's electrical. If it was gas it wouldn't just die. We all know how a bike starts to spuddor (sp) when you "go on reserve". Could be as simple as a fuse, or the key switch went bad. Mine has been acting up.

    Good luck. Stupid orange bikes.......

    i was late, the 640a had a flat tire on the way, turned around, went home, and switched to the xr400

    i was 20 minutes late and good that the FFs were still waiting.

    you guys are ordering the same part number anyway, and you could save shipping, buy them from ktmhutt
    [​IMG]

    the case cover is magnesium, the shipping weight won't be much, but the brake pedal will be extra.....:cry
    [​IMG]

    dale's timing to install the crash guards was perfect, and lucky enough to save his pristine gs
    [​IMG]

    but the fall strained his muscles, hope you're feeling better now dale.
    [​IMG]

    all of the sudden, out of nowhere, this rider came by laughing at us
    [​IMG]

    the sun was out , and it was really a beautiful day. we want to see dirt...so we headed down to sand canyon to soledad, and hoping indian canyon will be the ticket

    After seeing the pics loaded up the kids and headed up the scd.All i can say is you guys are f:freaky king nuts.The black ice near little t was a handful in my 4x4 trk let alone on 2 wheels.Many others must have had the same idea ,not many bikes but lots of 4x4's and in the deep snow sections ruts almost 18 inches deep .Only made up about 2 miles past sitos trail junction the snow just to deep,and the kids startin to whine three failed attempts on one climb and two recues (love them snatch straps)homeward bound.Saw lots of tracks on some of the climbs ,sorry i missed you guys :lol3

    hmm, I don't know about loaner bike, I'm thinking he got himself a "wedding present".

    you start collecting enough stuff NW and you'll have to hire someone to... umm... look after them for you, like Leno does. Let me know, I'll make sure they are all running right for ya. Nothing like "test miles" to work out the bugs. :evil

    We finally gave up, and were riding back down on Indian Canyon... I was feeling a bit cocky as it was starting to look like I would escape the mountain without hitting the ground - then it happened!

    I hit frozen mud (slush?) that was weak enough to give away as I was riding on the "dirt" in between the tire ruts. I got too close to one side and it collapsed under me, pulling my front tire left and the rest of the bike right - catapulting me off my bike and into the other rut.

    Looks like you guys had fun. I'm out until this head cold is past the point where it might migrate to a chest cold/pneumonia.
