Keep up on your maintence!

Just got back from the dirt today and it wasn't a good day, my piston is seized, kick-starter is frozen right after I flew over the whoops. Im trying to figure out if the whoops had anything to do with it.

My mechanics about to tear it down, all I've got to say is keep up on your bikes maintenance. My father is the one who was responsible for this, he keeps the bikes at his house so I can't work on them myself.

Pretty sad pushing it back across the track, I about past out doing so it was in the triple digits today

You're responsible for not servicing it before taking it to the track knowing that its been neglected at your dad's.

True. Divorces suck, its going to be anywhere from 600-1000 to fix im sure. and it needs new tires, levers also. just had the bike at my mechanic, and he had my carb off and cleaned it up. re did my forks with new seals and fluid.

it's only May bro....nowhere near 100 yet and motorcycle maintenance should be up to the individual riding it, not the person storing it.

Thinking I may just replace the battery on my Ninja...have no idea how old it is, and after the Ducati out on Saturday...well. Hang in there Sullivan, we only have 4.5 months of horrid heat/ humidity to go!

cheers,

I was riding at Outlaw Tracks, just outside the Houston National Forest.

No word from my dad yet on what the mechanic has found. Will post up what happened. For all I know my timing chain up or something that was not even related to maintenance.

Im trying to be logical about it, I rode the bike around the track several times, did a 1 hour run and came back in, it was only till I flew over the whoops on my second hour that it happened. Im thinking the excessive force might have done something.
