    I have to agree. It is a bit of over kill.
    The owner has done a very good job on her. Bike is very nice for what has been done. You can see what he was going for.
    Every rider sets up a bike the way there minds eye see's it.....this is he's....it is nice. :clap

    Check this out. I was several miles up a box canyon north of Moab with my son when I just knew I could climb this dune. Was going great until my loose chain jumped on the rear sprocked and siezed it hard. 5 miles from the Jeep in ankle deep sand. We rode out on his CRF230 and were able to retrieve it after dark. Then we went for pizza and beer. Love this pic.

    That's a great photo! Thanks for sharing it with us. :lol3

    I've got to ask. Was the slider installed in the bottom of the chain guide?

    The slider is in the guide, I'm pretty sure that sand got between the too loose chain and rear sprocket and caused it to jump one tooth. As I looked at from the side, about halfway around the rear sprocket, there was an extra link protruding rearward. That was new to me. Anyway, the chain was so tight that the wheel would not turn. When we made it out, pushing it on pavement turned the wheel enough to allow that kink out. We rode Hells Revenge/Slickrock bike trail the next day with no problems (after tightening it up a bit).

    One minute going like hell, the next, silence. I slid off the seat, turned off the gas and took the pic. For whatever reason it wouldn't start after this, but fired right up the next day.

    The manual is very unclear on this item. In my 93 parts book the tube is not shown on the clutch cover parts list. For some reason it is included with the clutch parts list? later parts list have it with the side cover items. My service manual only states to replace the O ring with out telling you what item has the O ring.

    Regards the O ring, I am running a used O ring as well. It looks like as long as the tube is there not too much of the pump dispalcement does not get to the engine. The tube is a good fit in the pump and clutch cover. I can't see it leaking much. The O ring must be insurance.

    I am using one now. It has not giving me any problems in 2000 miles. Just make sure you remove all the old gasket.When you remove the clutch cover lookout for a dowel that sits on the oil pump.

    Thanks for the advice, and also for the gasoline station information. I see that they even have an app for this. Very cool.

    As I said earlier, most marine fuel docks will sell pure gasoline as well. For some reason Cenex also has it. I have the following choices (only a 20 minute ride from my place):

    Poulsbo CENEX 87 Chs Inc 20370 Viking Way Nw
    Poulsbo UNBRANDED 87 Port Of Poulsbo Marina

    I almost had a similar thing happen climbing a sandy hill on my old '91 WR250. I made it to the top and after I turned to go back down, the bike stalled and wouldn't start until I got it in neutral. Then it would barely roll down the hill. When I got to the bottom, the chain was bow-string tight from sand. I managed to get it rolling and stopped about fifty yards down the trail where there was a stump I could lean the bike against. By then, the sand had worked itself out so I kept riding but headed home. Later on, the chain and sprockets got a good cleaning but I had no other issues. I also didn't try that hill climb again.:lol3
