Much bike work done the last few days. Took my time doing every unnecessary maintenance item I could think of. Bike is in tip top shape and ready for Patagonia. All thanks to my awesome hosts Claudia and her family! I've had a nice bed to sleep in and awesome meals and a shed in their beautiful backyard to wrench in everyday, taking breaks when the ladies feed me...not too bad! Tomorrow I continue south to a yet to be determined location. I'm back in my element...traveling solo without a plan.


  • Spares.

  • Replacing fuel filter. Need to remove exhaust and raise sub frame.

  • Replacing water pump seals...just cause.

  • My "Chilean Abuela"

  • Ignition cover had the tiniest of leaks where the cables enter so I replaced the gasket.

  • New camshaft.

  • Nickle and a dime trick to reset automatic cam chain tensioner.

  • My $14 amazon tool for disassembling the forks...beats KTM's $40 tool.

  • WP forks disassembled and cleaned.

  • Old parts.
