20 Minutes into the Ride



Just finally got my bike back together properly..... FINALLY get to head to the dunes for the first time in 5 months (I usually ride every month).... and the tranny decided to blow. That's my bike hooked to the Rhino by the yellow tow strap!

The shifter wouldn't even shift...

And yep spent Sunday disassembling the Shee..... washed her first... removed plastic, pipes (those springs are a PITA-bruised knuckles), carbs/filters off....anti-freeze drained, tranny fluid drained, fuel tank off.... AND then I was stuck ......... could not get the bolts on the pegs to break free... Roomy came home about 7 pm and got them loose for me, so tonight will be pulling the Stator cover and Clutch covers, removing cylinders,etc... and then wait for help to pull the 100 lb motor out of the frame.

PS, those RHINO's are the bomb!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It should all be good! Stopped at a builders on Saturday night on my way home (shop lights were still on).....THIS time I get to be there to help go through the motor (unlike last time) so I'm rather excited. The more you know, the more you can fix on your own!

That's cool - yeah it's nice to know how it all comes together.
I STILL haven't taken my Prairie in for the front end recall. Maybe I can get her in next weekend. Plus now that deer season is over I REALLY need to pull some serious PM on both my quads.

Maintenance is a never ending thing with 2-strokes!

My seat on my bike should have probably read "High Maintenance" instead of "Issues".
