Why ohh why would you ever do that! :bonk:

I took the front end apart to regrease the steering stem bearings.


Its come down to where I need to replace it. its served me about 600hours. I also need something a little more distance worthy.


Ill probably replace it with a XT660R or XR650R

Where are you riding? That looks like a lot of fun. The highest we get here in Utah is 9K-10K feet in most cases.

Thanks guys :bonk:

It's a very remote area of BC, hours from anything, you're out there. You have to be prepared to deal with your own sh** . You don't want a bike breakdown, we had to change 2 flats in the howling wind in the alpine :D
Alot of the trails in this area are old cattle trails, starting to disapear, it just doesn't see alot of use, maybe 100 riders a year, so navigation is essential. Only tracks we saw besides are own were animals, lot's of grizzly's in this area, but didn't see any this time...
We aren't really that high, highest peak was 10,000ft, we got to 9,000ft. But treeline up north here is 6500ft, our camp was at 5000ft
We were the only ones around for miles and miles :foul:

Reminds me of what Colorado used to be like 20+ years ago, before quads and closures!

Cleaned and oiled filter. Set rider sag to 100mm.

Did it with the wifes help measuring while I climbed on with gear. After first adjustment the sag was going the wrong way I thought hmmm If I tighten the spring shouldn't the sag be reduced? Ohh well I guess I went the wrong way. I figured I got about 5mm per full revolution. So I spun it the other way 4 turns to hit the target. Got all geared up and had wife measure again. Ohh no for some reason it's even worse than the first time. :worthy: So I questioned wife, did you measure form the spot I told you? That was a mistake. She got all upset and claimed I never screw up but she is always wrong! Ok Ok honey that's fine I'll just go back the other way. Spin 8 times the other way. Honey will you come measure again? Hey what do you know it's getting better now. Just one more turn and right at 100mm :ride:

Thanks for the help honey! :banghead: :ride:
