    Love the R nineT..

    had some time off this week and used most of it getting the boat ready for summer and working on my bike (1977 KZ400).

    did the oil/filter/airfilter, new tach cable, lubed everything, valve adjustment, fork oil, new ignition, checked the wiring, finally sourced carb boots on eBay and custom made some airbox boots to replace the old ones, spark plugs, new chain, etc.

    Today got it all together, went for a ride... shit, shes still a dog. I mean it's a 40 year old 400cc bike but barely hitting 70 to keep up with traffic.. if it didn't have some sentimental value (got it when I was 15) I'd trade it in..

    Went back, disassembled and cleaned the carbs, found both main jets gummed up, put it back together, what a difference! so much better.. feels good for an old bike and pulls strong all the way to 9k.

    Time to go back to fairings (mostly for functional sake).
    That's just, like, your opinion, man.

    Looks awesome, I am getting bummed out on Eastern PA offroad riding, the only legal places are super rocky for the most part. I miss riding the local farms with their soft dirt years ago.

    I am thinking of taking vacations to ride dirt bikes off road, I see videos in Tennessee and Oregon where the riding looks so fun. Even the desert in AZ looks relatively smooth and rock-free compared to the strip-mine areas of PA.
    The desert is all sorts of different terrain depending on where you go, if you go a few hours west of here, you get the sand dunes, go a few hours north, and you get "The Cinders" which is volcanic ash/pebbles through pine forests, massive hill climbs there, awesome spot, right now with it being winter, I ride in the actual desert like in that pic, which varies from smooth open desert floor, to rocky steep hill climbs, to box canyon narrow trails, to water crossings, to sand washes, and all sorts of shit, its bad ass

    Been finagling with my WR for a few weeks now, trying to figure out why it was detonating on WOT, fix my leaking fork seals, and a bunch of other little things . Started running Avgas, or aviation fuel, 100 octane low lead, got the jetting corrected for it as it makes the bike run richer, and replaced my fork seals, which were a bit trickier then other bikes I've done, but she's a happy dirt bike now!

    Anyone here had one?
    I have a little seat time on one. They're heavier than they look but they feel pretty good. Could use a few more horsepower but obviously not slow.
