Got new gearing on the Team TY80, and a new rear tire fitted -



Yup, finally dumped the Bonneville gearing we had been running in favor of genuine Trials gearing.  Only one problem...





The bigger sprocket put the chain into the mystery (no idea what brand or part number) shock.  Since I'm a Redneck, I came up with the Perfect Solution -





Couple of washers, and we're good to go.  Chain clearance and buffoonery gained!!! 






Okay, you all know that a TY80 thread is coming soon, right??

I gave a borrowed bike some love.  Curtis (NMTrailboss) was nice enough to let me use his old '99 315R until such time as I can repair the rear shock on my 4RT, so I thought I would do some maintenance on it.  No pics of the work (I was too busy and caught up in the "moment") but I replaced the front brake pads (along with a groove cut in the pads for "outgassing"), replaced the spark plug, serviced the air filter, lubed the chain (yes Curtis, with the Motul chain lube that you hate so much), lubed all the pivots (first one to guess which pivots that need regular lubing ((besides Curtis)) wins......the Tecate beer can that I just finished  ), and did a general wipe down/cleanup.  Looking good, no?




Okay, a wash job is in order.  After this weekend's Sipapu work day, I promise.


I also got a plate out of retirement, and added it to the front of the old 315 to motivate me to get back in the game -

Ok so I broke two impound class rules today. Cheating I mean practice and maintenance. Brewtus will never believe it  both in one day. I didn’t get any photographic evidence of riding but most of the people who saw me there did look very surprised.

When I got back I decide to wash the bike and clean the air filter. I used my brand new can of maxima racing oils air filter cleaner. Turns out this stuff cleans everything including the glue that was holding the air filter together.

You're right.  Even with pics, I don't believe it.  [rofl]

Kristi and I snuck out to SanYo today to scout sections for the upcoming MWVTA and her Lower NMTA events.

Don'cha just love shiny Trialers in the SanYo parking lot? [icon10]

We spent several hours poking around the south end of SanYo past Lower Pool and into Grand Canyon. Found a few gems hidden in canyons down there -

[eek7]

Hmm, maybe not for Vintage or Lowers, but still cool.

Anyhoo, we roamed for a while longer when I noticed a storm moving in -

[SanYsidro2014042_zps132e99b8]


We got back to the parking lot and loaded up. It started to sprinkle a bit when I cinched down the last tie-down, and by the time we got into the cab of the Tundra (like, 15 seconds later) it was doing this -

When we got to the top of the hill, we could see it absolutely pouring on Upper Pool and Amateur Canyon. Springtime in New Mexico! [lol8]
