While waiting for my new high performance brake fluid to arrive for the dirt bike (Maxima Hi-Temp Racing was $13 less than the Motul RBF 660 Racing with only a 1 degree difference in boiling point)

I decided to get the mototrials running after it sat for over a year (!), in hopes of riding the cowpile trial weekend:

Started with only 2 kicks!

Clutch
was non-existent. Reservoir went dry. Quick bleed/flush and it works great.

Front brakes:
some pressure, but disk/pads coated in brake fluid. Worthless.
I have new pads, but don't want to put them in and contaminate them if the caliper is going to continue leaking, so I tried to get the current stuff working and see if it will keep me going for now.
Removed pads, ultrasonic a few minutes in ZEP degreaser, followed by simple green, followed by water then propane torch until they are smoking (probably should have smoked them a few times)
Degreased rotor, then took a stone (like for sharpening knives) and roughed up both sides without removing the rotor. Cleaned with brake cleaner.

I now have a front brake that will do 1 finger stoppies again! Still working fine after the 1st 20 minute session!

You liking the AER forks?

I'll be interested in your long term review of them.

This thread had really fallen down the list; last post in June!

I installed a fresh tire on Saturday. And what did I find? Just this big-ass stick embedded in my mousse all the way through to the wheel. No big deal.

Replaced the timing chain, the clutch pack cush drive assembly, fork seals and bushings, speedo pickup, adjusted the valves, bled the brakes, and changed out a bad headlight on the Husky TE 610. I think she's finally ready to ride... Oh wait, it needs new tires and I'm thinking on putting in the Tubliss setup when that happens.

That thing was freshly repacked. Some of the packing was saturated goo, some was just discolored. Maybe I'll take pictures and show Michael how to repack his FMF. I think his might not have a core.

I was going to seal everything up with Yamabond 6B instead of auto store red goo this time, but my 6B was just a hardened mess. Half a tube, $7 down the train. Investors for my single-use sealant tubes, act now!

You have by far the worst spooge problems of any bike I've ever seen. I literally could not handle the amount of spooge you deal with. I would have probably just got rid of that bike entirely a long time ago.

Requiem to an orange love.

My dear, you and I have been together a long time.
We have seen joy and pain, and many many hours of smiles and laughter.
Through it all we never faced a challenge we couldn't get through together, with time and patience.
You never left me stranded, no matter how adverse the situation.
We carried others on your back, towed them to safety in their hour of need, as only a strong soul can.
My eyes have wandered, many, many times.
But I am committed to you.
You let me know it was time you needed help, i am listening, and i will stop at nothing to make you strong again.
We will be on the trail again soon, moving quickly toward unknown adventures.
Soon. Soon, my old friend.
You will be whole again.
And so will I.

Yeah, at 450+ hours and 12 years of hard riding and racing, time for a refresh. What a lame brand.
