    Getting better. Moving in slow motion. Amazing how relaxing a cold pack can be! An airbag vest would have helped in this instance. So yes ...maybe.

    Glad to hear you're on the mend, and kudos for toughing it out for your SCUBA test! I've got a helite turtle, that I wasn't wearing when I bailed on a ride last year. Broke 2 ribs, had a grade 1 clavicle separation, bruised a lung and had a partial anterior tibiofibular ligament tear (ankle). Although there's no way to know for sure, I probably wouldn't broken the ribs or bruised the lung had I been wearing it. I've learned my lesson!

    I too have a Helite Turtle. Wear it 100% of the time. Remember to hook up the lanyard ~90% of the time.

    Dang! I really missed out on meeting you all, I just found this thread. I'm working as a seasonal firefighter in Modoc, an hour from Cedarville. I've been zipping around on my DR350 I hauled alllll the way from MA! It's not equipped for long distance but if anyone wants to ride, let me know! I'll be here all summer (well, fire activity will dictate that).

    Yeah, no doubt mofrids (repeat of last years) wood acquisition was appreciated by all.
    Like last year... we didn't burn it all. There was a small pile when we left.

    @Mofrid is an overachiever.

    I received a text yesterday from one of the volunteers. Saying thanks for coming and that a local woman wanted my number so she could show us around next year.

    Fuck yeah.

    i pushed the bike on soft dirt, put in gear and pushed the starter. great, i'm moving again and able to shift without any assistance from my left hand

    rode for 22 miles or so and glad i made it to camp.

    Dang,that clutch issue sucks.. I guess well enough cant be left alone. Ive been riding various KTM dirtbikes with the Magura hydraulic clutch since 2001,and they've never been known for problems.
    I may have bled one once or twice. Evidently not the same deal anymore.

    If we would have just had a plastic hose to try bleeding properly we "might" have got it working.
    Until the slave leaked out the fluid anyway.
    The KTM and Husky clutch master cylinders do not hold much mineral oil. Doesn't take much to drain one out.

    I've not had any issues with my ('03) 450EXC clutch.
    The ('06) 950s however has a known clutch slave issue. Mine started leaking about 30,000 miles. I tried several times to rebuild it but to no avail.
    note here: KTM does not make a slave rebuild kit for that era 950. You can get the Oring seals from 3'rd parties, which I did. Still leaked. New KTM slave was like $175 with no assurance it would last any longer.
    I went with the Oberon slave. Reliable. Rebuildable.

    I know that hydraulics make the pull muck lighter and easier but I sure do like the simplicity of a cable actuated clutch.

    it sucks especially the 701 has only 800 miles when it happened. Another owner in the 701 thread just lost his at 1000 miles.

    KTM still won't admit there's a flaw on the design or construction. my 2006 950A had the same leaky slave issue. putting an Oberon fixed it.


    I had 2 KTM 640, an Adventure and Enduro. They have clutch cable and I ran a spare cable tye wrapped along side. Everytime it breaks, in 5 minutes I can switch. Easy fix and cheap.

    i think your SE jinxed the 701s. mine and robbie's.....:lol3

    I just finished changing the old fashioned clutch cable on my R90. I think I only got about 100K miles out of it. :hide

    I'm on my second clutch cable on my G/S. First one went something like 72,000 miles.
