Re: I'll be riding the Acadiana 400

I'm sure you will have her up and running in no time. I'm always amazed at how much abuse an engine can take. I would like to know how long you sucked dust in on the clean side of the air box.

Re: I'll be riding the Acadiana 400

Kerry and I are camped at the Loran Campground in Forest Hill, ready to ride trails in the morning.

I told him less than 30 min ago that I thought you had water in your gas.

It is just starting to rain and I'm sleeping in this stupid tent I built yesterday with leftover house wrap and good intentions.

What's the oil look like?

Black but otherwise fine. Was not milky or fuel smelling.

I was hoping you would share the autopsy on the KLR J. Quite the mystery.

Re: I'll be riding the Acadiana 400

She lives!!! after new rings and honing cylinder..

Started easily and idled well. Only ran it about 20 seconds because I haven't refilled the radiator, hooked up the radiator fan, etc.. just got it back together enough to start.

If I get around to the rest of it tonight I'll heat cycle it with a couple of rides to work, and I'm good to go!

Re: I'll be riding the Acadiana 400

Made it to work today, so everything seems good.

Pro tip - if you just throw all the "common" nuts and bolts into a big bowl that already has nuts and bolts in it, you won't know how many extra you have left at the end, and your stress level is way reduced!

I'm going through that now! Plus I bought a bolt kit.
No idea of what's missing.
