    Pete is putting on the Vstrom fall camp and ride referred to as the Peep show in stromtroopers events

    You were there twice way back at Cupsuptic campground

    A few of the regulars have other commitments so not the normal about 25 attendees but maybe only about 10

    Now that your "BACK" wanted to let you know

    got word today, it's alive, intermittent fuel pump issues were combination of faulty fuel pump relay AND tip over sensor. brakes are a bit sticky, calipers will come off and cleaned.

    I pulled em both into my office but took the k-pipe out for a short 2 mile ride. It was FUCKING COLD yesterday, high temp was maybe 28, zero wind protection on the k-pipe. I had work today, tomorrow supposed to get up to 45, I will probaby take both of em out. They both have fresh oil changes.

    The K-pipe actually starts quicker and stronger with the kick start, you dont even have the kicker halfway to the bottom of the stroke and it's running, even when it had a dead battery at the dealer, They put in a new battery, and a Battery Tender with a pigtail connected. no storage under seat, so it doesn't have quick release. It takes more cranking with the electric start. shift is n on top then 1-4 down, has a heel/toe shifter, single disk in front, drum in back

    You can get an alternate shift drum that'll make it a traditional 1N234 shift pattern if you want.
