    Yup, that is the plan... just hoping someone had a jig/set up so I did not need to re-create the wheel. Have a line on a set up, just working on timing.

    @fastdadio, my sons KTM125SX... used a tree for braking assistance.

    Hope he's OK. I've found trees to be very unforgiving.

    I remember the days. I started my kids at 8 and 10 yrs. on Suzi DS80's riding with the CCC. Kids Camp was the whip!
    I'm off work recovering from knee surgery until Aug. Hanging out in the garage catching up on projects. Stop in if ya feel like it.

    You can fill it up with water and freeze it and sometimes that's enough to get that dent out if you do it a few times

    Noice bike. There's a bunch of FnF's tearing up the Bass Lake area this week end. Why aren't you up there with them? I'm sitting out the summer recovering from knee surgery. I had to call and cancel my reservations for the camp ground last week. Walking around these bikes in the garage really sux. Run the Hell and back route. When you get to the north end, call me. I have beverages.

    We have a 2 week break so will be taking the kid out riding one weekend and a trip planned for me and some of the guys the next weekend.

    I have a need for used sprocket sets. My uncle is a welder and he just retired, he's bored, and he wants them for art/craft projects. I gave him a set I had just replaced and he made a really cool clock out of them. So please keep me in mind. I'll pay postage, or we can arrange a pick up. Thanks.
