^^^^^ I think we can have some fun with this. Now GFY (go fork yourself)!!
Mini Build Thread:
This 500 is still new to me and I really don’t know it mechanically very well yet. That’ll obviously change and already is changing. Here’s what I’ve done to it this Spring in preparation for the ride.
I noted that the fan stopped running. The temperature switch in the radiator is a known point of failure and it looks as if mine is shot. I don’t have time to order one but no sweat, these bikes really don’t need them most of the time. I cut a strip of thin metal that I can use to bypass the switch to make the fan run if I get into slow speed terrain when it’s hot. Beer can would work also.
Stock kickstand by KTM- world renown undisputed masters of the modern day kickstand. (not)Durable,(barely)functional, (un)reliable. I know it’s hard to improve on absolute perfection but I made an attempt by adding a larger foot.
I rebuilt my tire pump that I purchased circa 2001 at Target for $5. It’s seen some action. The entire rebuild consisted of installing a new o-ring. Good as new.
I installed my M.O.A.B.B’s (mother of all bark busters). I fabricated these in 2000 and they’ve now been on three bikes since then.
I’m working on a new cell phone/gps mount that I’m pretty psyched on.
If you’re not picking up on my smartass sarcasm, my point is you don’t need the latest and greatest to go have a good time. As I’ve stated before, my heros are the dudes that show up on some beat up XR400 belching smoke, broken levers-fenders-helmet visor, blue jeans, bent rims, bald tires and send it up some sicko hillclimb that no one else will try.
I just scored me a frog gig.
What’s an XR400
You forking kooks ain't getting it. The Adjustafork is a forking joke and you're turning it into a forking job for me. Fork you.
So are you going to make the cell phone/gps mount available on the adjustafork site.
The Joe mantra: May the ‘Fork’ be with you.
Oh someone please photoshop his head to that. It could be his logo.
Wow. Things are deteriorating here.......
This is the adjustafork odyssey thread
OK, you got me there.
Post more cool ride pics and we'll stop or at least slow it down a bit...
I can see it now, bumper stickers, T-shirts, Crowfee mugs..................
No sir! No one here does not think that you are some from of minimalist god, however, adding fun to the thread is a bonus. Some form of jealousy is in there as well...
I thought this thread was a slow burn story that resulted in a toe-curling climax of...the exceedingly wonderful experience of sitting in a camp chair after a long day of riding. Instead it focuses on an overdeveloped spork. A big friggin spork.
Spork....just doesn’t sound the same, nor nearly as delinquent.
Fork......, now there’s a a true transbastardization of a fine, fine noun, a forking noun at its verbagily best.
Joe, you have a great sense of humor. Good writing very interesting in a fun kind of way. Tell me about why you run that big front tire...
Myself, I use a 400/ 19 on my DR350, and I run both front and rear tubeless (the minimalist way, Shoe Goo). I haven't had a flat since I went tubeless. I did get a horseshoe nail in my rear doing the CDR in Idaho. I plugged it before it went flat. For me the big tire was all about sand riding, and the tubeless is great for anti-flats, but the tubeless also lets me air down to 10 lbs for even better sand riding.
