Long time, no visit. Just haven’t had to do much on my ‘08. I finally got around to replacing the front MEFO Sport MFE 99; 7,200 US miles on it, and it probably should have been done a while ago. Replaced it with a Shinko E700; we’ll see how that works out.
The rear MEFO still has a few K miles to go. While I liked the feel of the front, it wore funny, with the center block cupping, and still wearing faster than the shoulders, even running 40 PSI. The one before it did the same thing. Since I’m not a wild off-roader, anything that does OK on gravel roads and isn’t too squirrelly on wet pavement will suit me. That’s it.

Tank vest for the vented IMS came back in stock, ordered it and got some IFAK pouches as well as a bottle pouch and a couple others.

Over the past 800 miles of mixed riding (forest trails and mostly 60mph cruising and moderate stop and go) with the KLX installed (142 main, 42 pilot, second washer, 1.75 turns out) I have averaged 55.6 mpg.

Today I also installed the crank oil restriction mod that Paul came up with. I have burned apprx 18oz during the last 1600 miles. Not much, but still am curious how this mod will affect things. Installed in the oil cap for the time being, will change out banjos later on.
