Hey bug!

Is that a SOUR lemon in your avatar?

Sorry to laugh at your expense, I just thought maybe you were referring to a certain motorized vehicle with a certain number of problems.

Yep - Thats what it was for - I just hung up with Corse and she is fixed - Just waiting on a new "Indicator Tube" which was cracked and leaking the engine oil - The seal issue is still a mystery but that will be resolved over the winter - I should have the bike back by Friday I hope - The tube is on back order by KTM but Corse is hunting for me with their KTM reps

Loosened bolts inside the plates pushed the clutch out - He took the whole thing apart and all the pieces parts are fine - He refilled the fluid and lock tited the thing back together and all is good with her now

The bracket and tube should be here by Friday so Sat morning I am going to train it up to Corse and ride her back - Anyone want to meet me up there and hit some back roads again????

I know G2G is down with it - Sunny and 75 on the forecast
