    OCD kicking in... Why ride with a leak when i have fixed literally everything else on the bike.

    New Shift Shaft (common cause of continued leakage after seal replacement: Bent, scraped up. etc. probably done by me trying to remove the bad seal), gaskets, and another new seal is under $100. probably an hours worth of work to replace. Might as well.

    If I slightly over filled the crank case oil on my last KTM smoker, it would leak oil from the counter shaft seal. Before going through the trouble of replacing the seal, it may be worth double checking the gear oil level.

    It's ALIIIIVVE!!!!!!

    waited far to long for parts to arrive to replace the shift shaft. finally received everything i needed, got everything out and installed with a comedy of tiny, but delaying, errors.

    buttoned it all up and it wouldn't start!

    Dove in to the carb, super clean, back to the stator, it was fine. tried a few more things, still nothing. I rage kicked it like 5 times rapid fire and it sputtered. did that again and it stumbled to life and right to a steady idle! I guess the motor was just so dry/ void of fuel it took a while to get enough pulled in to start.

    So basically i'm going to start it and ride it every day between now and november 4th to keep an eye on it, but i think i'm out of the woods.

    So, more accurately, you're into the woods now?

    (Replying to the carrying premix question, in another thread or wherever haha)

    No offense Kyle, but unless you are riding dirt roads that get graded frequently, most woods riders, unless they’ve been riding and training a LOT, are more likely to need Gatorade and Advil after a full tank than they are likely to need more premix oil and gas. But yeah, if you are in shape and/or riding easier terrain, just bring the little chain saw containers (of good premix oil) and add it at the pump.

    The ironmen around here, when they do rides longer than a tank, won’t be encountering any gas stations, so one guy gets elected to drive a pickup truck with everyone’s 5 gallon containers of premixed fuel to a rendezvous point...or if the location is right, stash fuel out there so no one missed the ride.

    We would stop at a gas station which was known to sell mix - buy a quart and split it between all the bikes. Going through 2 tanks was a typical Saturday.

    to set expectations, will totally be riding like a total noob. I have ridden on dirt 2x this year. probably a total of 2 hours of seat time.

    i'm going to die.
