Thanks

Nice bike.

Valve clearance check and adjustment on a 08 KTM 450/530 EXC.

Thanks dope, very helpful in comparison to the literature that came with the bike.

Next task before the day is over is to fix the clutch cable bracket on my 49cc Derbi Senda that snapped off. That is if I don't get burnt out.

You shouldn't hang the bicycle by the rim. The Zeitgeist will not abide.

No trade winds + overcast = uber humidity
