For the 250 and 450 both:
  • power washed
  • cleaned air filter
  • installed fresh air filter
  • cleaned/oiled chain
  • aired up tires
  • logged Moab riding time in maintenance books

For the 250 I removed the shroud graphics, as the right graphic mostly disappeared on the highways. I used GooGone to remove adhesive. Now I have white shrouds and white plates with yellow tank and fenders. I installed an airbox cover and power washed the inside of the airbox. I opened up the silencer spooge drain and let it leak overnight. I adjusted the handguards for more hand protection as my right hand is a magnet for the few trailside trees in the states of Nevada and Utah.

My Shinko R505 Cheater is finally done. It can stand more hardpack rides but doesn't have the knob height for soft dirt or sand.

Checked the valves on the 450. I want to keep an eye on them because the center valve was tight when I first checked them after buying the bike. None of them moved.

Ordered another R505 for the 250 and brought my MT-43 out of storage for the 450. But it looks like both tires have some life left.

Added some oil to the 450. Checked the log book and found the 250 had gone 19 hours since an oil change and I really abused the clutch in Moab. Barely had enough Rotella left for it.

I thought about changing tires but I think I can get some more rides out of these.

450 fresh v mounted MT-43:


250 fresh v mounted R505:


With one good long ride on the R505 I can get it down to less than a dollar per hour of running cost.

I actually washed the Alta. That might be the third time. I want it to look good for the Coyote Creek Sprint Enduro on Sunday Sunday Sunday!

My rear exhaust mount has been broken for a while. I'm also tired of smashing up pipes. Today I solved those problems.

Step 1:

Visit a friend who welds to fab up a new exhaust mount.





Looks pro



Steps 2 & 3:

Brand new FMF Gnarly with new springs and o-rings. It's much easier to install with all the mounts in place.

Installed Force Accessories skid plate/pipe guard.



Yes, it weighs 6 lbs, and yes, it's going to scoop up mud in wet conditions, but I'm on my 6th pipe in 280 hours and I'm sick of repairing/replacing them. Hopefully this bash guard is nice and stout and it doesn't just bend into the pipe. Sure looks like it's built well.

I took off my pipe and cleaned up the spooge that leaked around the exhaust. The pipe drained some spooge while it hanged to dry after cleaning it and its o-rings. I replaced it with hi-temp silicone on the o-rings and the silencer junction.

I can't wait for viable electric dirt bikes.
