Got the Leonelli tether kill switch installed & functional. I had an issue with wiring so I took a chance & called Mike at the Tryals Shop. It was after hours, so I expected a machine. WRONG! He answered & talked me through my confusion.
So I won't have an embarrassing moment like last fall. I'll have a different embarrassing moment I'm sure.
Variety is key! My embarrassing moments are never the same... I am constantly surprised at how many new ways I'm able to look silly.
Miss Bitters and I snuck out to SanYo today to scout sections for the upcoming MWVTA and her Lower NMTA events.
Don'cha just love shiny Trialers in the SanYo parking lot? :d
We spent several hours poking around the south end of SanYo past Lower Pool and into Grand Canyon. Found a few gems hidden in canyons down there -
Hmm, maybe not for Vintage or Lowers, but still cool.
Anyhoo, we roamed for a while longer when I noticed a storm moving in -
We got back to the parking lot and loaded up. It started to sprinkle a bit when I cinched down the last tie-down, and by the time we got into the cab of the Tundra (like, 15 seconds later) it was doing this -
When we got to the top of the hill, we could see it absolutely pouring on Upper Pool and Amateur Canyon. Springtime in New Mexico!
May 2002 is the last time I remember that ledge set, Brewtus!
Looked like a bunch of fun sure, but for the Vintage???
Could do an expert only!:eek1
You want it, you got it!!!
I took the Princess (my Beta) out to her natural habitat, San Ysidro. For the first time in too long,
Got the old girl started finally and rode around the yard. Last time I tried I kicked it 100 times and nothing. Yesterday 3 kicks and it fired right up LOL. I think it just likes to be difficult :).
Went to Hickory Hills (Lenoir City, TN) tonight after work to run the 9 sections I ran this past Saturday and Sunday as part of an STRA event. I wanted to go back and redo the sections I was having a hard time with for practice.
3 solid hours of riding until it finally got too dark to see!
"Be the labor great or small, do it well or not at all."
Ride till you clean it, not once, twice, but three times and move to the next. That`s how you get better at trials. Plus the workout can`t hurt!
Replaced these rear brake pads...
Might just work better, ya think?
Oh, gotta check the fronts.
Well I continued taking things apart on the 2001 GG 321 trying to get the chassis sorted out this spring, since last spring was clutch/carb/head/controls repairs.
The rear wheel is at the Tryals Shop getting new bearings and a new dunlop, I have some new dogbone and front wheel bearings coming back with it to install.
I tried to disassemble the forks this evening and without a helping hand to try to secure the inners I was not able to get the nut loose on top. I have a neighbor with a vice, I hope that and some old serpentine belt pieces will let me get the innards loose tomorrow. If anyone has a good trick for securing the inners without damage feel free to share. I have had the new seals for a year but have not put them on until now, so trying to get that done to stop the leaking.
I was measuring the rear spring so Mike at the Tryals Shop could see if he has a replacement that is not sagged. Mine is only 5 7/8ths inch long now, which means when I have the preload adjustment at the minimum setting there is a 5/8ths inch gap between the spring and the adjuster, I asked Mike and he agreed, there should be no gap there. I think its supposed to be at least 6 1/2 inchs long. So I was looking at how to remove the spring from the shock. The narrow/skinny end of the spring wont clear the threaded part of the shock body for the preload adjustment, nor will it clear the bottom due to the small adjuster which I am guessing is the dampening adjustment. So if anyone has a trick for removing the spring on an old SACHS shock I would appreciate it.
Weather is getting nice and the ride is still in pieces, so I hoping to get her back together soon
Went over to my neighbors and used his vise with some wood and leather welding gloves and got the forks taken care of easily.
Still unsure of how to replace the spring on the original SACHS shock, I tried to see if the top of the shock would unscrew with the same technique, but I was afraid to tighten the vise enough to keep it from spinning for fear I would crush it......
Went riding in Belgium, very nice two days classic Trials Event (Euro- Cup), one round had 30km, 120km in total.
Around 300 riders from nearly everywere in Europe, from Spain and Italy in the very South up to UK and Sweden from the very North, all in all 14 nations!
