    Same here.
    I think the problem with it is that it doesn't extend very far in front of vertical so it will be easy for the bike to move a little forward and then have the stand retract. I suspect 10 seconds with a grinder on the stop will probably solve things.

    I've heard a rumour dealers have to purchase a 'diagnostic pack' to sell the terra/strada and some husky dealers may not take it on :ear

    And Troy is looking at the exhaust pipe....

    Everyone knows a supple, well damped back end is more important than pipe bling.:getiton

    I'm no expert... but i'll take a look at it for ya' sweetheart... :evil

    Them bump stop cushions sure look in pretty good nick to me... I've heard them Sach's rear dampers can suffer from cavitation if you "bottom" them too hard... not to mention problems with "ring slap" on two strokes if you don't use the right oil (mix). Like John Laws say's... lubrication is all important (or was that Alan Jones...? :hmmmmm:rofl)

    rjf...:wave what rhymes with;

    remember it's a two stroker WILL... if anything, it looks to be running a bit lean (white around the flange)... you might want to try tossing a touch fatter jet into it... :rofl

    I was under the impression that if it was lean there wouldn't be that much crap:ear

    If it is running that lean then you will probably do its ring in and have to do a rebore afterwards. Probably better off trading it on a new model then. :huh
