Default A Pre-Season Tech Day?

Hiya!

So I finally bought a 2005 KLR, about 11k miles on it so I don't think its bad at all. It is completely stock though. Which im okay with but there are certain things that need to be done. (stuff like Doohickey and Sprocket Changes). I was wondering if anyone would be up to doing a pre-season tech day in early may?

I don't have the skill to work on things and I would like some help, but I do have the space for a few KLRs to fit (2 car garage) and I can get some food, some beer, good times are had by all and everyone is good to go for the summer season of riding?

Does this sound like a good idea to people?

---Chris

Any time before July would work for me, I hope this works for everyone else. I can show you how to do the doo and sprocket changes. I have all the tools for the doo.

I was thinking maybe sometime in May or early June.We ride to D2D every year so would like to do valves well before that. Done the doos ,chains,and spockets so good there. Would something like this work for other folks?

I would be interested in a KLR tech day in Anchorage. The next couple of months are crazy for me but hopefully I can fit it in. I need to do the doo and figure out the suspension...

What does everyone think about a tech day this week? I'm working up in Fairbanks right now but I have Jury duty all next week. I have a garage (somewhat organized chaos but I have some basic tools). It could fit roughly 3 KLRs at a time? Thoughts anyone?

I am out of town for a week. I still need to order the doo... I had my bike torn apart a couple of weeks ago. I am surprised it worked after I had it all put back together. The KLR seems pretty bombproof to work on.
