What did you do to your dirty bike today?

It's been busy in here lately and that's excellent, but let's keep it going. How about a post-whore-but-dirt-bike-related thread for tinkering and whatnot?

About a year ago, my clutch cable frayed and I replaced it with a new one from Motion Pro. It never felt all that great and I finally bought a new Honda OEM cable and I just installed it....holy carp I can't believe what I've been missing. My 450 clutch pull is now smoother and lighter than my 250 smoker! Bummer is, now I'm going to have to buy one for the smoker.

Rode it and decided the 99 cr250r is a bit much to learn on... Kinda kicking myself for not taking your advice to go with a yz125. The good news is that it's plated so I'm gonna sumo it, get the 125 to learn on and then break out the 250 when I have some skilz.

If you can make a conscious effort to short shift all the time, it's a very mellow bike.

Haha, Ben, where ya going? I'm meeting a buddy out at Foresthill tomorrow, should be nice and tacky with the rain yesterday.

I walked by it on the way into the house and thought to myself I should do some service before I ride it tomorrow.

How well, maybe next time.

I walked by it and caressed the back half of the seat ever so gently. Hope to find time to take one of them out this weekend.

Walked by it on my way out for a cycle ride, and almost cried because I still can't ride it.
