installed my long externally adjustable mixture screw. 

Took it on some errands and worked like a champ. Needs some carb tuning and tires and should be golden.

Good to see your getting some use from your DR and having a great time doing it smiley 

Two pieces of advice: remove the bark busters, for my money they are only useful if you're riding in very light scrub or foliage  - we strongly recommend new trials riders take them off as in almost any frontwards fall you'll break a wrist or two. Trials bike have E36 M3 stands, DR's are probably a little better, but I have seen two people hang their helmet on a bar end like your photo, bike falls over and the bar lunches a hole through the top sad

Not a new trail rider, but it has been a little while. I'll pull them off. 

I'll figure something else for the helmet. Bike feels pretty stable on kickstand. I think once I order a rack I'll be in business.

Or just hang it on the other side of the handle bar.  Problem solved.

The ol DR now has a not half falling off tail light that doesn't flicker. 

What do you do a 4am... 

Installed my last turn signal, installed a flashing LED brake light bulb, and cleaned it up some before loading it up to get dropped off to get tires installed. 

Normally I'd never pay someone to install tires but this was to cheap to say no.

 

Flashing LED brake light bulbs are legit my favorite thing. 

 

Upon close inspection, glad tires are going on today. 

Took the bike and mounted new tires and tubes, brake pads, chain, wheel bearings and think I fixed jumpy speedo. 

180 miles this weekend.

Update. 

 

Speedo is still sorta jumpy. Mostly use it for a guess for speed. 

Tires and brakes works wonderful

 

Did some ordering this week 

Ordered:

foot pegs (one stock one is bent) 

Headlight to replace my busted one 

A plastic bit for the tank 

 

 

This week I need to see if I can fix my shifter arm, the rubber is quite worn and it's bent and cracked with jb weld on the crack

I'd run as high a mixture of seafoam as you are comfortable with.... for like a year. That carb will be fine.  My Norton Commando likes it. And to be a dick, I throw some Maxima Castro 927 in the tank also. Just love the smell.

I accidentally saw on the platform that day that the total duration of my League of Legends game was 6447.5 hours.
My first reaction was to take a breath.
I have been in contact with this game for 9 years, which is 269 days without sleep, accounting for 3% of my current life.
If you are a King of Glory player, click on the personal homepage to find out your game rounds, multiply it by 20 (minutes), you can get similar data.
These quantified data are chilling, for no other reason, just because the first word that flashed into my mind was "a waste of time."
