Seat has a quick release that you can do by hand, then one screw for the tank and four for the valve cover. You can check them right there. To adjust you just slide the rocker arm over pull the shim out. The crf requires to take the whole cam shaft off.

Only problems I ever had occurred in the last two months. Broken shifter return spring which was replaced by only taking off the transmission cover. Easy. And I think my fuel pump is acting up now but that is only a $100 part. May be something else though. Not sure yet. Cost to replace the con rod and piston which is recommended every 6,200 miles is about $1,200 if someone else does the work. $500 if you do it.
Thats not bad at all. I'd be very happy with that.

Nice. There's a clean WR450 on CL right now for a decent price but it has no title. Let me know how the bike rides. I've read alot of great things about the WR as a street legal sumo so i'm not opposed to getting one.

I called a title bond place, it's only $100 bucks to get a bonded title. If the deal is good then it's worth it.

Curious to what bonded title place are you using? Is that their fee only? or does that include the surety bond for that bike?

I didn't use a bond place because this bike had a title. I was researching the costs because one of the bikes I was considering did not have a title. I googled "bonded title" and found a Houston number and called them. I forgot the name. The lady told me it was a $100 fee to acquire the bonded title and after 3 years it could be converted to a regular title. My understanding was the $100 covered everything.

I find it unforgivable that the KX is still in pieces in your garage.

I am down for tomorrow night as long as Brandon and Dan don't make out in-front of Chick Fil A again.

That's what happens when you start getting into a 12 year old bike, you start having to replace everything, and since I'm not made of money... It doesn't help that I up the perfectly good crank that was in there.

It wasn't a Ckick Fil A, it was a Taco Bell. And I was just using him. The 690 is officially sold so I can't ride it. The WR 450 is almost ready to be plated. I will be on the road soon, just a little slower.

Any reason for getting rid of the 690? I am currently thinking of picking up a enduro 690 r. Just need to sell a car first.

I would rather take a dirtbike and drive it on the street then vice versa. The KTM is a great bike but way better suited for the street. I wish I would have kept the Husaberg 570. It was the best of both worlds. The 690r is on my list for a potential purchase. I get a chubby just looking at it.
