Nothing yet, the buyer seems a bit unreliable. It's still sitting here

No. It was in Wisconsin. I am in Chicago for work, so I made the quick trip up and back with the rental truck.

I think, HOPE, that I finally fixed the carb in my new-to-me WR450. 

I've been trying different things most weekends since I bought it in December. Poor thing sat for most of two years without being ridden. It barely ran when I first got it. Ran a tank of fresh gas through it, but no change. Got better after I cleaned out the carb but from 1/4 to mid throttle it still had no power and stuttered. I had found the pilot jet had some fibrous stuff mostly clogging it. I drilled it out, then later replaced the jet. Small improvement.  I'll skip the several steps and parts replaced that didn't work. This time I checked all of the circuits and found some of the same fibrous crap completely plugging the line from the pilot jet into the throat. Got it out with a wire.

The bike started up fine. Idled great. But it's SNOWING now, dang it, and it's supposed to be below freezing till Friday.

^Salty bike for a salty pauly.

 

I decided to give Q4's a go on the CBR. Curious how many days I will get out of a rear. $340 total for a set from pony right now if you include the rebate from dunlop. 

 

If you need tires and like dunlops, buy before the end of April. Good rebate deal going per set.

Eh could be 1/2 a day or could be 2 days. Depends on the track surface, suspension setup, temp, pressures, and how hard you're getting on the gas!

My q3+ rear lasted almost 8 track days and close to 1000 street miles. 

 

Kinda crazy. May be because Mid Ohio's abrasion level is actually negative so it heals tires rather than harms them. 

 

I'm hoping to get 2 days. And maybe 1 more if I can flip. Need to read up on that though.

I’m so jealous. It’s like 40 here and wind is blowing like crazy. I really need a powersports fix right now. I Tried to ride the quad yesterday while the ground was still frozen. I ended up snapping the master link not even a half lap around my track. Chain wadded up into case saver and broke the the case where the saver bolts into. No real damage to case other than now I’m missing a bolt hole for the new case saver I ordered. Starting to dream like @NinjaDoc of warm days where I can make it to SEO. 

 

What roads are you riding as you’re throwing the MT around? How are the roads down in SEO?

144,550,377,78,260,26 to Marietta. All roads were in surprisingly good shape, really clean. 260 is getting pretty rough.
