    In the last week I've given it an ultrasonic carb clean, valve clearance check, new plug, brush guards, and bar muffs.

    Re: What have you done to your dirt bike today?

    that's what my "street legal 2-strokes" thread turned into...as long as you don't mind that I might likely run the thread with a buncha my broken projects, lol

    yesterday: stoked that I got my XR650L figured out - the mixture screw fell out, that's why it was running lean:



    the screw won't come in until Friday, so I rolled up an ear plug to test it out, and voila! she idles without choke again!







    cleaned the tank by hand before it went on...



    IMHO - aftermarket stickers randomly slapped on make it look a little trashy...



    so I peeled them off...luckily the glue wasn't hardened and they came off easily



    rear rim had a layer of grime...



    I don't know the "proper" technique to remove it, I just use a household sponge with scour pad and scrub it with car was soap



    like new again!

    @ typeone - you mean this sort of stuff?

    you want to post a max pic/post limit or anything?

    I started it. Sat on it. Stared at it longingly. ... Then went inside and worked on the house.

    I don't have a bike anymore, but seeing this is the dirty section... Stopped by the dealer on the way home from work to order some hot grips for the 450R, and just put my hippo ears on...bring on the ice!!

    Had a slowish (5psi every 20 min) leak in the rear tire. Took out the tube, couldn't find the leak anywhere. Put in a new tube anyway. Pita with ice tires. I definitely don't have it down to a science yet.

    Looked at the hour meter while planning the for sale ad that I've been meaning to post for a little while now. Next step is take some pictures.

    It's so worth it. If we ever meet up at HVD or something you're more than welcome to a taste. I was lost without it in the new bike.
