    Do not know how to tune 4-strokes with the Supertrapp but your threaded shaft looks unnecessarily long.
    Squirrel the XT is coming to Moab as a pinch hitter if needed. As you well know, having two running motorcycles comes in handy. If the XT hadn't been running during the Winom-Frazier and Dug Bar rides last year, I'd have been walking. My TW was still down while I tried to diagnose what later turned out to be a bad pulser coil. XT did great as a backup quarterback!

He has done a great job and I smile every time I see him riding it.
    Someone else owned the XT before you right? It's their fault. Actually, probably more a product of age than anything else so no need to through blame darts. ...unless it's some weirdo who forgets to tighten the axle nut when he adjusted the chain. ...after he got a flat fixed. Oops.

    Admiral, I am so disappointed to see this! After all, we know that you have the proper tool for that job .

    Oops, I left the shop door open and a stray took up residence. The stray is an 89 XT350 with about 8,500 miles. Got it for $500. It's heart is very strong but it does need some attention from the pet groomer or pet cosmetologist. This has a little extra umpf when the trottle is twisted.

    Nice find. They are heavy and tall geared, but with a little work it will make a good Idaho back road explorer.

    You ain't kidding it's tall geared. I wasn't expecting that when I took it on a test run. This ain't gonna be a trail bike but something long range more like what we rode the first three days down on the Fleet ride. It'll take a little getting used to.

    In addition to the hammer I see you have your American flag proudly displayed. Good for you!
    Nice to see that you run counter to the recent survey that shows a majority of polled Democrats are not proud to be an American. Still the majority of those polled are proud to be Americans.
