Scroll down on my post, it ran perfectly. $50 per month is plenty and well worth it. I am adding an hour meter and at 40 hours, it's going back to Chad for a check up. No complaints at all.

I am happy with the price, the work, the whole thing.

Staton
+1

Not limited to Katoom's, but CRF 450s, Chad does great work! It'll go boom soon enough. He'll be my guy fixin' her up.

Hey, KTM's were made to go boom, but they are easy to load and unload from the van. They crash really well, and they make for a decent fashion statement when you wear them like a hat.

Piston had a hole in it, does wonders for power! I'll let Chad fill in all the details as to what he did.

Asphalt is what's hard on elbows...especially when you do a flying Y and your palm sticks to it upon impact. From there, it is a dealer's choice as to what gets the wrench: wrist, elbow, shoulder, or any combination thereof. Very ineffective crash tactic to put out your hands like that......I think just augering in chin bar first would have been easier and less painful in the end. I mean, once you are unconscious, do you really think that slowing that helmet impact by .024 ft/sec by sacrificing limbs is really worth it?

I will try to roll up in a ball, tojo style next time I crash. That seemed to work well last time for him.

tojo gets a one stroke penalty for ending up in the water hazard, though.

surely you can do better?

Yes it was a previous repair that more than likely gave way during dissassembly. It had nothing to do with the failure.

It was repaired this go around by bevelling out the area and rewelding. Should be much stronger this go around.

Yup they guys at American heliarc did a great job. They did it right this time. They even custom fabled a piece to weld on. They didn't even use the old one. Real nice guys and top notch work!
