Too bad to hear about the Sprinter and injuries.

I have a stock clutch lever from my KTM that I think would fit your clutch master. I think it's a little bent but functional. Yours next time I see you if you want it.

Hey ThumperX,

Not sure how I missed this epic thread (gotta get out of the VC and AR sub-forums more often, I guess ...) ...

Thanks for posting and bringing the dock-find ATK back to a good life!

see you around the campfire,

I'm glad you bumped this thread, John. Having had the fortune of being allowed to swing a leg over this thing, I can tell you that she did one heck of a job bringing it back to life. This bike is an absolute hoot to ride.

Gwynne, You did a great job resurrecting the ATK! One day laying on its side in the canal and later laying waste in Baja. That thing rips. Good job.

It is scary to see your Sprinter in the bottom of a ravine. I'm glad W was not more injured.

Last night I sat with my old ATK and we talked.
This week I will drain the gas, drain the oil, pull the battery and mothball it.
It's been a fantastic bike in much the same way as a built up muscle car, giving true meaning to the phrase "if in doubt, throttle out."
Sadly, the ATK is getting older and so am I. Beastie will spend its remaining life on a non-op while I go and take off with a younger model.

Good night Beastie you will always be my one true love

Is storage with no oil preferable to storage with oil? I know you don't want old oil, but I'd have expected changing it and then storing to make sense.
