We're slow, but we get there.

After spending a couple of more hours today, we have the KLR engine apart. The head needs some cleaning (expected)

... and the piston is getting replaced, so it won't get cleaned ;)

Me? I'm happy that we got it apart without breaking anything major ;)

Now to get the cylinder machined and then to put it all back together with some new parts :)

Another Angle

Night ride on Friday, stopped at the 20th Street again to get another angle at the pedestrian bridge and lights.

"Manly work"

Why is Jerry so happy? Because we are pulling my bike apart to put 'big bore' kit in. I.E. we're stripping it down, pulling the top of the motor apart, having the cylinder machined and then we're going to put the whole thing back together.

Hopefully we won't have too many parts left over after ;)

Lori brought us hot chocolate & freshly made chocolate chip cookies. You know, manly snacks for the manly work ;)

Happy in an unheated garage at about 3 or 4 degrees Celsius.

Next weekend we're pulling the motor apart, this was just the prep.
