    Yeah, it`s really hard to not just kick`em good. And amazing how slow of a kick will start them.

    No, gotta kick it, didn’t want or could afford a 300, always wanted this one. Orange wig maybe...

    Me too, it’s either one or five with me :D

    Plus the idle needs to be like 1800, my dealer had mine turned way down and it was super hard to start

    Is that RR a 2020? I thought they changed the color scheme of those?

    Little girlie got fresh oil a new filter and a pair of mittens. Actually got two oil changes because I had a little oil around the wiring on top of the case cover so pulled it back off and changed the gasket. I use the controversial lay it on its side method and today thought you probably could drop something in there . That being said I pulled pretty hard on the two dowels and they were tight. May just use the bungee to the jointer technique from now on 7B9ADA02-FD31-4865-8AA3-54B89DF651AB.jpeg

    I got those practice fenders for the 301 mounted up and stuck some home made decals on there. the cricut is a cool tool (ive actually made gaskets with it). Also trimmed out the rear fender to be a bit more floppy for all those ghost rides I have planned. Now its ready for endless hours of practice.

    Ok, I will not go into detail yet but some might remember I had shock issues with my wife's bike... well after getting it fixed I messed it up again (my fault, please don't ask how). Long story short I got my bonus from work and after making sure I had enough in the bonus to do it, I got permission from the wife to get an R-Racing shock for my 300RR... Well a lot of back and forth with Randy and two weeks between a couple good long test rides I am now the proud owner of a R-Racing shock...

    I will be posting a detailed ride review in the "Montesa Cota 4RT R-Racing proto-type shock" thread sometime this weekend. Tell then here is a quick teaser.... WOW! This thing is fantastic! Pictures and details in the other thread. :deal :ricky :thumb

    Crazy but yes... :lol3

    They aren’t usually very large but can make the difference between being behind when things like this happen or not.

    :dunno

    Stable boys usually get a bonus, just not monetary in nature.
