    You just can't get good German engineering anymore.:lol3

    Installed a new front tire on the KTM since the old one is missing most of the side lugs. Replaced the slider and chain guide on the Yamaha, then loaded her up on the truck, all ready to go for an AM ride.:happay

    I had to pull the piston off in order to get the rings in. Got this far on reassembly but the batteries in the torque wrench went dead before I could finish. :bluduh

    Batteries installed in the torque wrench, head torqued & valves adjusted. Should have it all buttoned up tomorrow night.

    Found lots of water crossings around Palm Coast. Stopped at the light house for lunch on the way back.
