SGTMarty,

I'd be interested too when you set a date. Just moved into the Springs and need to get the Doo Done! Thanks.

I'm interested for sure. Need to put new rear bearings on, L mod, maybe fiddle with trip meter, and anything else I break between now and then. I'll probably be coming down from Aspen area if anyone up here wants to get up early and make a ride out of it. Hagerman, Weston, then ?

I would also be interested in a Denver/North Denver meetup. I have to do my do, replace my clutch cable and am looking at doing my plug and rear brakes also.

Ok. I'm ready for a tech day. So much so, I will even host one. If there is a strong enough response, I would be willing to do both a Saturday & Sunday. I have lots of room in the back yard for tents etc. I'm wanting to do my Doo (have the complete kit), a valve adjust, & install the progressive springs with gold valves on my 2011. Might even pursue some of the other mods. I'm thinking about 3-4 weekends from now, around April the 14th & maybe the 15th. I'm in Lakewood close to Jewel & Garrison. 2 car garage & 4 car driveway. So lots of space. Let's see a show of hands via pm.

Hey Folks- is there any plans for a KLR tech day coming up? I am in need of some help and would love to have help/advise on Deep Hole and Valve checking. I also have the thermobob installed, but not sure if it is working correctly. The temp gauge on the bike (08KLR) has never worked correctly (stays real low- not even coming up to the C on gauge- sometimes bounces around). Just typical KLR stuff I know-

Plans? I am up in Steamboat, so we are few up here. Looking to see something happening down on the front range where there are more peeps. Headed to Moab round the middle of April and would like to have something happen before, but whenever is good.

Thanks in advance.

I'd be glad to host a tech day in Fort Collins in about a month if that works for you and hopefully a bunch of other early seasoners. I'm no guru, but have plenty of tools and space, indoors and out, so hopefully one or two gurus would be willing to make the trip. I had a tech day 2 years ago with about 20 folks and it was a great time.

My next tech day probably won't be until April or May. If someone else is hosting one before that, I'll try to make it there to help out.

I'd be interested in a tech day if for no other reason than to socialize and check out others rides.

Kind of short notice but I'm thinking of hosting a tech day in Aurora next weekend, the 8th. Any interest? Any Guru's available? I have garage and lots of concrete, a couple lifts, doo tools.

Post a new thread here in the Rockies forum and there's a good chance others will respond. I might be able to come by around mid-day.

Hey folks,

I'm new to the KLR scene, but would love to do a tech day or just a meetup if some of you more experienced KLR folks around Denver would like to. Don't really have any mods planned at the current time (wouldn't mind doing the KLX needle kit, and I'm pretty carb dumb, so would love help).

So, if anyone is planning something soon, I'd love to tag along if that's cool.

I have a ims tank coming in Thursday or Friday if the weather is ok I'll be sticking it on this weekend if anyone wants to come and hang out. It'll be in South Loveland, about 45min from downtown Denver.

Shoot me a PM if you're interested.

missed the tech day but I wouldn't have been able to ride there anyway. Bike is down tearing into it this weekend to see what happened or I would show up to watch you install the IMS tank

Guys, feel free to post up a tech day in the regional forum if you are inviting people over to do some wrenching or hanging out.

BTW, I'll be hosting a tech day within the next couple months at, place south of Denver.
