    Not sure a juice drink will help him or the bike much.

    Well as seen on the Craig's thread, I bought an '04. Did 1140 miles to between Lyons and Estes Park, Colorado, yesterday/today to pick it up from a trail rider. My favorite type of buy!! Clean, rims, cases, frame, etc. not gouged or beaten to death. :clap

    On the other hand, it was owned by a trail rider. Handlebars pulled back, bar controls pointed almost all the way down, forks almost Roadracing stiff. Big list being compiled for Overland now, but first some "housecleaning"...

    Yeah this '15 was born and raised in Colorado but you're in the 505 now, baby!!! :D No more stickers.

    Quickie check of the air filter verified it's trail bike past -

    Estes Park is a good piece north of Denver. But you're point is well taken. The boy needs help. :lol3

    Oh yeah. The pilot is painfully lean, it's super unhappy down low. Main feels OK, but I wanna get into the carb before I do to much.



    Thanks. It's worlds better than the Rat, yes. :thumb

    Just couldn't help myself. "Don't clean off the lift from the 4RT strip, just do a couple of simple things on the 315 on a stand".

    Yeah, right.

    Carb removal to verify it was painfully lean (33 pilot and 95 main!!!:eek7), and then couldn't help myself.

    Yup, all the light wiring, light, speedo and cable got removed, and the Overland Trail list just got longer. :rolleyes

    New Pro Taper 7/8s bars and Renthal grips already on the way. More to come. Much more.....

    I think Bou the Wonder Coyote is asking " will he ever put a bike back together"? :D
