    No problem, if you didn't get a tool kit with your bike (like me), Motion Pro makes a thin walled 18 mm deep spark plug socket just for XRs, Rocky Mtn carries them.

    Your valves are very likely on the tight side (.002 - .003") and your plug's gap has grown as well.

    It seems I always start my riding day off here. This hottie wanted to tag along, but I explained to her that this was a very serious day of riding ahead. No way I could take a chance on her

    The weather was nice first thing in the morning, which meant we had a hot day ahead

    nice rr john, me like..:evil


    sorry jon you crashed 3x, broke your turn signal and ended up getting a bruise. glad to see you didn't get hurt badly. note that there's a proper way of lifting a bike, you can tear a shoulder muscle or ruin your back that way.
    [​IMG]


    hope this ride doesn't deter you from showing up next time....:ricky



    look at the bright side, being at home doing rehab, you're a lot closer to the fridge...:dutch

    dr, tough for me w/o you, the rides are a lot harder cuz we stop less frequently.....no more of these...:bubba+ :jkam

    we rode on, and about a mile from my house, i noticed vermin was missing, so i turned around and saw this; good thing it wasn't that bad
    [​IMG]


    i like taking picture of the price of gas for each ride; years from now, we'll tell ourselves how lucky we were gas was affordable. the regular is mighty cheap at this place...and the answer is no, i'm not telling where...:evil
    [​IMG]
