Just saw this thread. It wasn't today, but here's my past few weeks:

New footpegs, front brake line, clutch cable, and fresh brake fluid front and rear on the KDX.

New tires, water pump rebuild, coolant flush, clutch pack, and oil change on the 690.

Now, if only I could make some time to ride...

I need to long more miles on it before I can say anything definitively. It seems good so far, though. Unfortunately, I had to drive the car yesterday and today. Tomorrow, I should have time to put a few more miles on it. I want to shake it down thoroughly, as I would much rather have it break down near home than on the Quincy rally in a couple of weeks.

Well hopefully it's all good. How much dirt on the Quincy ride?

Not enough dirt. The ride to Quincy will be mostly fire roads and such. Nothing challenging. I will likely be riding street all day with Kurt on Saturday, too.

If you ever need a quick fix, come up here and hop on the loaner bike and we'll ride Chalk Bluff!

I mostly buttoned up the lightweight drz project today and was actually able to take it for a quick rip up the road. The pilot circuit is way off because it only runs with the fuel screw all the way in and it wouldn't start with the choke. Still need to add a few street legal bits. I think just a functional brake light, mirror and phony turn signals should be enough to look legit at a glance.

From Paskenta to Covelo, meeting Mr. Bear on the way by Anthony Peak. Lost the ability to use the clutch on Dos Rios Road and went the last 100 miles to Eureka in the fog shifting clutchless and wondering if she was going to crap out.
Met up with my bud, got some mineral oil and back up and running. Apparently it was a bit low and and just sucked some air into the master. Headed up to Coos Bay in the morning with no issues and damn beautiful riding next to the coast. Kept pace with a guy on an old Triumph for the last 100+ passing Harley's and having a great time playing follow the leader.
Damn I love this bike!

It was not today but a couple of weeks ago, I changed the oil, cleaned the air filter, changed the brake fluid, lubed and adjusted the chain and checked her over from top to bottom. When I was convinced she was ready for battle I put her back in her shed and didn't pull her out until the Friday before last.

I then loaded her up and brought her to the Sheetiron and rode her like I stole her. I'm truly amazed how much pounding a front wheel on a dirt bike can take. She rewarded me with perfect mechanical performance. I'm still dreaming about that ride.

Rebuilt the rear shock, swingarm and linkage bearings... poached a couple of local fire roads and got about thirty miles of street and highway. Pretty nice to actually have some rear suspension.

Solid maintenance. I need to rebuild my shock as well.

Today I tinkered with the drz dual sport project a little more...

Replaced the speedo drive with seal and spacer from the left side.

Replaced grips with my fav (renthal full diamond - soft).

Installed the skid plate.

Installed a fuel tank vent valve from a yz250 (kept finding fuel on the fender).

Installed a new Pollisport brake light (still need to wire it, need some deans connectors).

Installed rear brake light switch (still need to relocate the reservoir).

Aaaand chased some bad threads.

Can't wait to weigh this thing when it's done.
