New clutch going in.
Have a girl that wants to go for a ride in 3 hours, the clock is ticking.
Pike National Forest this morning
I hope you don’t need the 5 minutes you lost uploading that post!
I did not need those 5 minutes....!
A typical Cdn prairie view, flat land, sun setting, storm on the horizon, CN freight train rolling toward Winnipeg. Some nights like this, with clean skies, it looks like you can see forever.
Is that Huck back there?
That's a great looking bike, Daryl!
Which rear tire is that? I'm starting to shop around for something a little more aggressive these days.
Hi Chief. Heidenau K60 Scout.
Like the similar Mitas, heavy, and heavy duty (stiff) carcass, not that easy to install/remove, but they are long wearing, so you're not changing 'em often. They're an excellent 50/50 tire IMO, but I really don't like the matching front tires on gravel... why the Kenda K270 knobbie front (great combo).
Edit... a closeup of that tire, worn quite flat, but still has lots of life left in it. I have a new Mitas E-07+ on hand to replace it.
Very nice. I looked into those and wondered if the price was matched by performance and longevity.
Probably getting a bit off topic, but what the hell, I can't reply in the KLR Only thread, so...
From what I understand, Heidenau and Mitas both are getting lots of traction (see what I did there :^) up here in Canuckland with serious ADV types, on both medium & heavy bigger more powerful dual sports. Some folks have reported rubber cracking and tearing on the Heidenaus, but on the not-so-powerful KLR, a non-issue IMO (I just went out, had a close look at my tire). Check out the crazy mileage some folks report getting in this thread from HUBB:
Installed the DG and the "quiet core" baffle and headed into the San Jacinto NAtional Forest this morning;
YEa I know...bit of a re-run. I will work on that.
New panniers and crash bars
Not pretty but upgraded with KX 450 forks and brakes, Magura hydraulic clutch, Woody’s front wheel and new swing arm with Atomic shock. Performance improved immensely with a powerbomb head pipe and FMF exhaust
Tell me about the Atomic shock !!!
I found this in the forum and contacted the inmate at Atomic Motors. He built the shock for his KLR project which never progressed so he sold the new shock a new swing arm and new bearings for a really good price. It is sprung for about 250 to 300 lbs and for me with al light weight ( Giant Loop Coyote) set up it works very well
Installed a new set of cheap LED lights on my KLR while at work today.
Not bad for $15 a pair!
I bought another set to replace the clapped out Hella fogs on my BMW as well.
I've had several people tell me how they noticed me in traffic from a long way off with yellow driving lights, so I've decided to have them on both bikes
Thanks China and Amazon...
Pardon the yucky fingernails, haha, I'm a mechanic in a factory and my hands are usually pretty rough looking.
Misquito Pass today about 12,500;
I think you have mistakenly parked in the two stroke area of the designated motorcycle parking?
Ha! Seems as though I did, good eye!
I took some quick dusk photos to show my lights as well. Headlight is a silverstar halogen but is on low beam.
