Hey ET, just wanted to stop in and say, "I have come back to this thread a bunch over the past couple years. This thread you have written is my favorite one on the internet! Because of you, I am now fully aware of all things on my KTM 350 EXC-F. I'm not afraid to take it apart and put it back together anymore. I attribute it to your confidence boosting thread you have here on this forum. Hope all is well with you! Heres to another awesome (hopefully dry) summer coming up here in the PNW! Cheers!"

Way cool, boss. :D

Someone was asking when I might do a section on repacking my Akropovic muffler.
Hmmm .... probably not until later next winter.

But I went ahead and picked this up to get ready:

Greetings from Colorado E-Ticket!
I have read and re-read your valve adjustment instructions, and feel they are the best ever documented.
I want to finally do the job and just the text will probably be enough - but man, the pictures are awesome...will they be back?

Howdy! Happy to hear that it's been helpful. :D

As for the PhotoBucket drama .... they just up and whammed everyone by blocking *any* 3rd-party hosting.
And there was no warning at all -- just "BLAM!" -- right out of the blue.
I can understand them wanting to move to a revenue-based model ... but this wasn't the way to make it happen.

I'm still trying to understand what my options are moving forward -- but initial investigation looks like
they're asking me to pony up $400 a year for my Wee Beasty pics to appear. :shock: .... ](*,)

Still checking things out ... will reply back when I learn/understand more.
In the meantime, I am truly sorry about leaving peeps high-n-dry. :cry:
