    40 kms in the backcountry with killer dearflies after my flesh. I just rode it out flat. I felf every little rock on the front rim. I guess I'll be looking for those A60s sooner than expected. :lol3

    The tire was toast so I was running it too low to try and get more traction to keep the little bikes in view. Probably around 15psi ish when it should have been around 20. In the dust I didn't see the rock I hit but I felt it and knew right away I had pinched the tube. Pretty sure it was just a regular tube though so I'm not too upset over it. I'll put a fresh UHD tube in there when I put a new tire on it. :-)

    My rear brake clevis was a sloppy oval mess. Warp 9 is not making a 990 version anymore. Turns out an off the shelf YZ one will fit. If you have the brake all the way in the highest position you may run out of threads. In the lowest position it’s fine.

    Put on the Motoz TAs, went with a 140 for the rear. I was a bit nervous before I installed it, it looked much smaller than the Perelli Rally. Rounded out nice once installed and aired up. They installed much easier than some of the reviews made it sound. I wouldn’t worry about a trail repair with these.

    Went on a ride with pavement, concrete, and dirt roads. Pretty happy overall, solid on asphalt and great hook up on dirt. Only part that was interesting was concrete at highway speeds, little wobble but never crazy. Front also seams to hold well on less than solid gravel, hopefully it does as well on trail dirt. I believe this is the new version of the front, but I don’t have a comparison to the old.

    Tires seem to be a theme..

    I removed the K60 from the rear - Holy crap it's hard to break the bead on these suckers.. Took a few times around the rim with the tire irons, but it finally let go.

    I put a Mitas E-10 on the rear.. Not my first choice but it was available when I was shopping.

    Excellent customer service from Warp 9 Wheels - Kevin overnighted some spacers to me. My stock spacers were a tad too big

    The orange hubs are sweet looking!


    Edit:
    I also got a RotoPax storage box. It's holding a spare tube, tire irons, patch kit, two strap, and some other bits.

    Adjusted my loose throttle cables finally after installing a RC8 throttle tube a few months ago. I followed the Tunecu method and when I started the bike it was loud as f**k! I'm like how tf did adjusting throttle cables result in a Hells Angel shorty exhaust sound. I immediately shut it off, reversed my steps, messed with the throttle cables again...the only bad thing that could've happened is a high idle. Butttt then I looked at the gaping hole in my exhaust from the O2 cables I just removed (installed Rotty dongles). *sigh*

    I plugged the hole and we're good to go, no issues. I failed to follow my rule of doing one mod at a time, testing the bike, and then doing the next. All is well.

    I rode it! Just 70ish miles, but it was a glorious 70 miles. No pics though...what a bummer.

    Installed a set of Crispy Designs graphics to cover up the dreaded tank peeling.

    Installed a new/used brake pedal I bought from a scrap vendor (top). Mine has been "corrected" in my vise and by my boot on the trail one too many times.

    I have done about 4000 km on the Motoz. Incl a lot of high speed motorway (regretfully). The rear is about half gone by now, while the front is may 30 %, but with a lot of scaling and it makes a lot of noice... They are the tire with the longest life I have tried so fare !

    Snagged a used ADV rally tank off a fellow Inmate. Total 7.2 gallons now. The 990 is a pig when racing off-road. This will help. I also upgraded the t-line with brass and had some Eaton fuel hose laying around. I know the blue line looks exposed but if I put the passenger peg back on it’ll be totally protected. Now to see how far I can ride! [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
