Bike had the rekluse and rear brake lever when I bought it. I love it!!! Rear brake on the bars is just awesome on technical downhills.

that's going to be my plan, when I ultimately do the Rekluse. I rode Farnham's and definitely locked up the back tire a few times pulling the clutch in .. I guess you get used to it though. Still, I think for a lot of pavement time having a lever-actuated clutch is a good thing.

/hijack.. engine is looking good, Farnham! Can't wait to experience the results in about 4 weeks..

Replaced rear wheel bearings, upper shock bearing, sprockets & chain, swing-arm sliders, JD jet kit, clutch cover, new front fenders and shock guards. Some random hardware, a new battery, and a bunch of elbow grease. I'm am very pleased with myself, first 4 stroke top-end rebuild. I own a timing chain tool if anyone needs to borrow it.

Nice. Put some miles on it so it's broken in before Utah... if the snow has melted enough.

I tried to fit in a short ride yesterday, didn't happen. Trying for today. It's my last day of work for the ski season. Bittersweet. Nice to get the time off, little frightening to know the money faucet will be off for a month.
