Central California Tech Day 10-12-08

Hi all,
I know this isn't a lot of notice but I wanted to put together a tech day/ meet and greet for the Central California area before the weather gets cold and wet. I'll have doohickey tools here for anyone that needs to do that. So the date is Sunday October 12th here in Paso Robles (send me a PM for directions). We'll get started at about 8am and hope to be done about 1pm so we can squeeze in a quick ride before everyone has to head for home. I'll get some hotlinks to put on the BBQ about noon.
I hope you all can make it by and turn a wrench or bench race a little.

Shoot this guy a PM, I think he joined just to find out about my techday tomorrow. He must have found an old thread at dot net because he'd heard it was on Jan 11th and that sounds like the date we had one here in '06. He is in Modesto and might be able to make it to your place.

TECH day

I just got my 09 KLR a few days ago. My son and a buddy are still waiting for theirs to arrive. We are all in Fresno Ca. and will want to do some of the rcommended upgrades.
Any chance you would want to wait a few weeks for the Paso Robles tech day?

Practice on yours at Paso Robles and the next two should be simple.

I don't think I could get the parts by then ( for the doo thing).
Just ordered the crash bars but they are 7 days out.

Sorry it's the only weekend day I have off all month and no idea what my schedule might be for next month. You guys could bring your bike over to work on, get a look at what others have done to there bikes. There will also be other tech days if you want to wait.

OK thanks guys. We want to wait for the other bikes to arrive but I appreciate the help.
We will work something out in the future. Lets see how I do on the SW crash bars. I'm not much of a mechanic but can do simple stuff...

We installed a set this past weekend and it was more difficult than I expected it to be. If you are installing the Motech skid shield at the same time you do not need to use spacers.
