The USMC version had the key epoxied in. Obviously without that a Marine would lose it in about 2 seconds. Also need to rebuild another fork.
So it's true then, what we were told in USN Boot Camp?

They said that a Marine was basically just a Sailor also, but only one with a kind of "head injury" (not the exact expression told me but close enough for here).

So it's true?

I know your only joking but as a Marine I must address this. It’s utterly ridiculous to even compare the navy to the Marine Corps. That being said, it’s more likely a Marine would eat the key before losing it.

Is that what makes Marines they way they are, they don't feed you all?

Got the latest front fork on, new fork boots, front fender, and fender bag. I also set the steering neck bearings and attempted to get the rear axle bolt in. I’m still having the same issue. I finally took the rear wheel off and noticed that the sprocket side wheel bearing had the incorrect inner diameter. The axle bolt wont fit. I just replaced both wheel bearings and sprocket carrier bearing with a set of either Moose Racing or All Balls. I guess I need the OEM one. Got the original fender bags reproduced by Storm Industries. He’s done all of the fender bags for me so far and made a few really cool tool rolls.1.jpg

Found a new set of sealed rear wheel bearings in my parts bins. Replaced the incorrect smaller diameter bearing and got the rear wheel and axle bolt on. Fought the grips on to the handlebars and put on the handlebar brush guards. I was going to rebuild the carburetor but just realized I was sent the rebuild kit for the Gen 2 KLRS vice the correct Gen 1.

Finally got the engine in. Just need to clean it up and replace the hoses. Tomorrow I’ll get the wiring harness in. I also cleaned the last 4 carbs for the bikes I have left (only 3). Just waiting on the rebuild kits from Eagle Mike.

Just did a few basic things today. I replaced the engine filler cap and drain plug with ones from Eagle Mike. I installed the exhaust (painted with high temp paint) with all new hardware for the exhaust shields, replaced the exhaust pipe gasket, and muffler join gasket. I put in a new oil filter and brand new cooling system hoses. I also installed a new UNI air filter using no toil air filter oil and paste for a better seal and then cleaned up the rear brake caliper and put in some new EBC brake pads.IMG_3260.jpg
