You can do that, just dont do it with the engine in the auto running.
I've done it ones... What's the problem?
What tread you got on that back wheel??
Looks very versatile!

Thought I would jump in and give my impression of the K60s. Been on them for about 500 miles now. 400 miles various types of hardtop, 100 miles dirt, rocks, gravel, sand. Changed my Tourance EXP for them as I wanted something a little (lot) more dirt friendly. Very happy off concrete increased confidence. Today was 170 miles of Coastal highway, super slab and canyon roads. This morning the PCH was humid. These tires seemed as surefooted as my Tourances ever were. side to side in the canyons as well. They performed great. Granted, as a middle aged (50) relative noob I might attack less than others, but still, riding two up today, I was impressed. I have only experienced 2 situations where I needed to get acquainted with their reaction: highway speed (70+) on grooved pavement (floating feeling) and slowing to a stop (<10 mph) front end vibration. I would buy these again. FYI tire pressure is 33 psi Front and Back.
That is one ugly ass bike!! Im sorry
Your not the first to call it ugly!!,to each his own I guess!...

My new ride and the '91 ninja it replaced.
I really like it.!!! He put a lot of time , attention to detail and MONEY into that bike. I think it's purdy.
The wee at Lake Tahoe a few days ago
new tires, skid plate and givi crash bars. Bike is almost complete and all that is left to do this year on it are the front brake lines! Should have em tommorow or something like that
Finally got around to replacing the stock '08 graphics with the cool, reflective, "German" style decals I bought last December. It's been too cold until recently to apply them. When I first took the factory decals off, I really liked the clean look of the bike. I was hesitant to apply the new decals but I had already purchased them so I figured I might as well use them. I'm very pleased with the black decals on a black bike. It still results in a subtle, clean look. The reflectivity gives them a dark metallic gray appearance in the daylight, which I like.
How did you raise your front fender?
i raised it by building a bracket that is bolted on the lower triple. Check out the weestrom index, there are a couple of different approaches that are shown. Instead of the fender moving with the bike, it's locked on top like a mx. I really like this mod. It makes the bike look awesome and no more jammed pebble between the wheel and fender.
here's my approach
i removed the triple and drilled 2 holes in the front of it. Then i built this L bracket to hold the fender in place. The key was to build the bracket out of very thick steel so there would be no vibration and then remove excess metal to lighten it.
Thanks for the info. Looks great. I'm going to try doing something like that.
looks good but....want a S10!!
please please keep me away from the S10. Ive seen it a powersports ottawa and don't like it one bit. Way too many electronic systems on it. Traction control ? no thanks, joint braking ? no thanks , Abs ? maybe.. shaft drive ? no thanks. I like to change ratios. I mean the weestrom is as good as you can get for the money.. throw in another 2 grand and you got your suspensions on par with Ktm. Can't go wrong with that especially since the bike is so reliable.
No you don't, but it at least becomes tolerable.
