    I have seen a few of those pics, Van, and they always make me smile

    Wow, Chris; that is an awesome offer!! I will get the rear wheel off of the XR (hopefully over the weekend) and then check your schedule. I am happy to drive up at your convenience. Very cool offer; thank you!!

    Changing a tire

    I got into a predicament (my son wanted to go riding) and ended up taking it down to Cycle Gera to finish it up (I am embarrassed to say it but I was running out of time and Kug stopped by (not the reason I was running out of time!!) and saw it missing so I can't even lie and say I did it!). But........I still need to do the rear on my XR650 so I will be back on this again soon. I will get this, and I really do appreciate all of the advice. I am sure that once I figure it out the first time it will all be much clearer!

    Bought a new (to me) KTM from a sketchy dude...

    Man I hope that don't happen!

    What is up with this?

    I learn something new every day! Guess I will be repacking one day. Mine does have an O ring (took it apart to check it out one day and learned I had to make sure it went back in right!).

    I hate odd numbers (and always wanted to be a 10!); subscribed! It kinda has an old school On Any Sunday feel to it!

    What is up with this?

    That plug appears to be about the size of a quarter (I am assuming inflation bore its ugly head and only a dime was available!). I'll ask the stupid question: why did you repack? Is this something that needs to be done occasionally? Unfortunately I have questions and not answers.

    Very cool of you, Mimi; thank you! I am going to learn to do this one way or another! Early on in the post I mentioned all the bicycle tires i've done and "how could it be that hard"? Learning that lesson now!

    Changing a tire

    You guys rock; a thousand thank you's!! I'm gonna go back out this morning with a fresh attitude and this information and kick this things butt! I know the first time is the hardest and I tried to keep that perspective last night, but at some point I just had to walk away! I wanted to try this "dry" like if I was doing a trail repair (but all I would be doing there would be a tube change-not exactly the same) so I had no lube or heat and was definitely missing some technique (small bites, using my knees, etc.). I bought that Jeepster sometime in the 80's, Brian. Was putting SBC engines in Datsun trucks at the time and grenading front and rear ends. The Jeepster was a buddy of mines Dad's and I bought it for the running gear. Drove it home and my Dad asked me "what are you gonna do with that?". Told him I was going to cut it up and stick it under another Datsun truck I had. Dad was a car guy and wouldn't let me cut it up and traded me for a Datsun truck he had. Dad passed away in 1995 and the old girl had been rotting away in Mom's grove where Dad parked it last. I got it back sometime in the late 90's and redid it. Since it had now been "Dad's Before" I got it back I got that license plate. Thank you all again for all the help; Can't wait to get this tire on and get a chance to try it out!

    Changing a tire

    Gonna bring this back up (sorry!). I got the tire irons for Christmas and the new rear tire. Figured I gotta get this done before the heat gets here and in case I get a chance to get out. Got the old tire off without too much trouble but struggling with getting the new one on. I will admit to not heating it up so that may be a part of my problem, and I am really worried about pinching the tube. I've watched a handful of YouTube videos but they are obviously done by guys who have done many of these before. I can Mongo the thing like I just don't care and see where I end up or maybe some of you guys have a tip or video that I haven't seen? As I sit in the garage all I can think of is you guys doing this in the dirt and I can't even do it in my garage with a full compliment of tools! The goal is obviously to be able to do this myself and then transfer that knowledge to the dirt with less tools and possibly no heat. Appreciate any input; thanks guys!

    Great job, Jim!

    The Acerbis is plastic and mounts the same way; probably what you have. Would be another big score if it is an Akropovic muffler; they're a grand or better!

    Doesn't look like it has a skid plate (typical from what (little) I know about KTM's). I bought an Acerbis for mine; easy install. Nice looking bike; congrats!
  14. You're gonna have to stridulate on your own I'm afraid 😳
  15. Is that "Lead" with a long "E" (leed) or with a short "E" (led)?! Sometimes I get confused.... Awesome pics; gonna try and get Mrs simicrintz out there this weekend for a wander about!
