    Doo hickey

    Does anyone have a reputable shop that has done a lot of doohickeys or a member who has vast experience with the job? All of my klrs have been done by Fred Hink at arrowhead and it gave me a reason to hangout in Moab, but Fred has retired, he was a master at this I watched him do it at least 3 times and it was a flawless operation without even draining the oil. Let me know if anyone has a suggestion. Thanks. Tom
  8. Firming up date for April 20th departure, ja ja you would be the perfect riding partner for this trip too bad your tied up maybe next time.
  9. I purchased this from amazon and love it, it has front and rear pressure with tire temperature, and programmable hi and low warnings for both, it also is rechargeable so no batteries or hard wiring, I’ve been using it for 2 weeks and love it, it also comes with 3 different mounting systems. I’ve never used these before but after 3 freeway flats and one that nearly put me down at 80+ on a new ninja in 08 when the rear tire came apart I decided I won’t ride without one anymore especially with the heavy loads of camping gear and luggage on multi week trips. I noticed the temp changes a lot with the load I’m carrying and I can adjust tire pressure to compensate and have now built a chart for load versus pressure for rear tire. I see they are out of stock but hopefully they will come back. There are other units available on amazon for more or less dollars but this is the one I’ve used and can only speak for it.

    3lb highback chair

    Love this chair, holds 320lbs and weighs only 3lbs, folds up nicely into small bag and assembles in seconds not minutes. I spend a lot of time on road trips and always hated my low back chair that weighed 5 lbs and only held 250lbs, this chair even rocks like a rocker (flexes) and the price is right for the quality. I’ll give a full review on its durability when I return from new foundland in May.
  11. I’ve used these for thousands of miles, the little silicone lock pads are kind of cheesy and only last a certain amount of time, I have had to order new ones on the road other than that they work much better than anything else out there.
  12. I just purchased 2 sets of Dunlop trailsmart tires for $80 a set from amazon (chapparal) that is like 1/4 of the original cost of these tires, I have ran them before back in 2016 but I forgot how great these tires are with a heavy load in the turns and in wet and snowy weather. I went into town today on a new set and they performed amazing on montezuma grade and then in the rain and snow in Santa Ysabel coming home today. Just thought I would pass this great deal on to other members. If you do a lot of dirt trails these tires suck but on 10% flat firetrails they do ok but are really a street tire and wet weather.
