I would like to convert my bike first, but the front brake caliper is stuck closed. Do you think I should just bleed the brakes to get it free? I tried to pry it open but no go that way. If anything I can bring the dirt setup. I work on Friday but I can go Saturday or Sunday.

yes.. try bleeding both sides... if there is pressure built up it'll squirt right out.

Joe, take off the Master cylinder cap and then pry open the pads, then bleed just remember that when the caliper is off dont sqeeze the lever!

you'd need a radial adapter, QTM makes one, but for a 100mm caliper. not sure if anyone makes one for the 108mm calipers.

duh, I must have glossed over that detail
that'd push too much fluid for the wimpy little caliper on the Dizzer.

Tell me more about Rocky Glen. Never been there. I wouldn't mind riding outside.
Do they have an actual track? What's the cost?

I should try and make the jumping class. I'll call Brad and check to see if he has room.

According to WGN.com it's suppose to be 49 on Saturday, and mid 40's with spots of rain on Sunday.
Might go for a quick blast on Saturday if I can get out.

Don't sell us short we are a full on bonified forum now. You would think that would make it easier for people to notice that.

Wait for it.............

Cool. My friend Adam and I should be there on our DRZs.
I need to find a front axle spacer and then I should be able to run my dirt wheels, too.
