    RTW Trip on a Himalayan

    It appears as if that beer or two gained you a great deal! The original plate was removed which possibly shortened the modified stand a wee-bit........I'm doing something very similar but won't see it for a week or so while enjoy SPEED WEEK at Bonneville.

    Rear Shock

    New 2020 model came to me with somewhat stiff suspension..........I put 3,000 miles on mostly gravel (some rocky trails) and noted the suspension seemed to work quite well as a naked bike with a 200-lb. rider. The side-stand is too long......but I have a plan to get that fixed. When I started...

    Parking Lot Damage

    Thanks, Robert...............I measured and find that the 'pipe' is not equal (centered) but relied on the pinch-bolts to hold the side-frames in-place. Left side is good with tight thumb squeeze between frame and tank..........so installed a small hose-clamp around the right-side pipe to...

    Greetings Indians

    Several of your emigrant countrymen (families) have welcomed me into their homes in the USA (Milwaukee, Wisconsin) after we became acquainted through my business appraisal business. Most were gas-station/convenience store operators but several were builders, hotel owners, and property...

    Oil

    Someplace on the internet is a video of a Himalayan rider & a KLR rider doing a really rough trail............both had clutch problems..........the Himalayan's problem was attributed to full synthetic oil...........apparently the blended oil has the proper amount of zinc for its...

    Parking Lot Damage

    No tip-over......slight rub mark on bottom of the frame-wrap..........after loosening the pinch bolts, I pried with a bar to straighten the frame and it popped back but the pipe did not move.

    Parking Lot Damage

    My bike was parked on the side-stand in the middle of a car-space at a medical clinic.............something 'bumped' the right-side frame-rack hard enough to 'push' it against the tank. No tip-over. Very minor dent and scratches..........the lower 'pipe' was pushed to the left which extended the...

    Update on Itchyboots

    I have viewed her YouTube adventure and most appreciated her motivation to pay for OFF-ROAD riding lessons. She is not shy about showing viewers when its time for her to turn around because the trail is beyond her skills. I missed the muff order deadline..........hopefully they will be offered...

    Anyone having success ordering OEM parts from their dealer?

    +1 on ebay as a ready source for replacement parts............clutch cable, levers, mirrors, oil-filters, tires, and others are already in my parts-bin. However, Chain & sprocket sets require caution as I once received 525 chain blended with 520 and 530 sprockets in the same package for my...
