    I've burped mine by removing the rear wheel and tilting the bike down to the swing arm. I restrain the center stand up the front so it can't fold.
    A 2x4 under the stand helps lift the bike just right.

    ^^^^^^^I'll say it again, what a circus to bleed the air. *Seems* they could have left a vent to positively bleed the trap.

    Shrug, IDK

    Suspension is worn so I dropped it off with Eric at Superplush for a rebuild, revalve, and respring. While it was apart the swingarm and steerer bearings were replaced.

    False Brinelling on the swingarm bearings.

    4D1C698E-9738-4439-B631-44A65EBE895D.jpeg Sold it. Moved my old brittle body over onto an LC4. It’s been an all-consuming passion and project for 9 years but ran out of mods I wanted to make. Still the ultimate adventure bike, even compared to the new computers-with-footpegs, and I will always regret selling it.
    Thanks to everyone on this crazy awesome forum for all your help and guidance. Hope I have been able to repay a hundredth of that with what I have managed to figure out or dream up myself.

    A refresh on my well used second set of wheels, looks like I got those sprocket carrier bearings just in time.

    Spooned on a fresh set of GT 723's, I haven't used these before and I'm interested how they stack up to the Scorp Rally/908 combo.

    I liked those a lot, but they are slick on wet roads. Fun on dry pavement and for my level of riding dirt/sand we have here, worked well. At full pressures they wore well too. I'm going with Scorpions for the KTM Rally in September, mostly because I have them and won't be needing any big knobbies on gravel roads.

    Added a stablemate this weekend, 2008 Superduke in mint condition, I was going to buy a new 790 Duke, but just couldn't pass up this sweet deal. Love the LC8 20190714_165931.jpg 20190714_100227.jpg

    Shout out to @Moose Dog for great service at a fair price. Conscientious and meticulous. From where I sit -- everything you want from a guy working on your bike. Two Thumbs up. PS: I didn't know him before this experience.
