    10 hrs of driving and 6 hrs of tear down and clean up and I now have a parts list.

    All it needs is rear wheel bearings and a new air filter. Add a couple things I want and I'm set.

    No issues starting it. Just choke it and kick it.

    Thanks for everyone's help.

    K N,
    I didn't tell the wife until it was a done deal and the kids had theirs. May be a good technique to use but I can't be responsible for what she may do to you.:rofl

    If you end up needing any parts for that thing I've got a new Gas Gas dealer here in NC that's awesome. Extremely trustworthy, communicative, helpful (as in I called him and said I need that thingy that does this thingy in the transmission) and he knew exactly what it was (a tiny circlip) without question and located the right part on microfiche, ordered it, etc no whining. Which, I find, is not standard issue when it comes to trials bike dealers. Let's just say that they tend to be "eclectic".

    At any rate, I got mine to stop overheating by replacing everything related to the cooling with the exception of the radiator itself and the water pump. It was either the rad cap, thermostat, or radiator fan.

    Good idea on the 9 o'clock shift lever position Sting, I'll give that a try. And try to crash more on the right side. Ha!
