Finally shimmed my needles. Went to the hardware store and bought some brass #4 washers and tore into it. Went to check the washer thickness and found my digital caliber battery was dead. Shite!! Not gonna head back to town to get a battery so decided to go old school and just play it by ear. Put one washer on and thought “god hates a coward” and went for 2 per needle. Put the air box back on and took it for a burn. Ran like crap! Pulled the filter and fired it up. No movement on the front slide. Took the front cover off and reseated the diaphragm and reinstalled the front cover. Put the filter back on and took it for a burn. DAMN!! Nailed it! No hesitation off idle and fires up so much easier now. A fairly easy job with a great outcome. You gotta love it!

I replaced a leaking rear axle seal on the left side (much easier than the right), and then I took it up in the mountains for a test run. No more leaks.

I washed The Blue Lizard. Again. :) (y)
I call it The Blue Lizard to remind me to put on my Blue Lizard sunscreen. ;)

Took the nephew out on his first atv trip today with my buddy and his kid. We put on 80 miles and he did very well. Out exploring on an abandoned ski resort. Happy to report the Elkas did awesome and was worth the wait.

I had to clean my air filter. This is what happens when you follow 38 machines over 160 miles of dirt roads.😯
