Thanks JohnBG and yes, I CLEAN MY GU!

Thanks John for running a great forum, put me in as an annual contributor. I could NEVER enjoy and fix my GU without the help off many people here. Yes some people post stupid remarks and I really don't give a rats a$$ about anyone's opinion anyway. For the most part this is a great site and I tip my hat to those who post positive and constructive info.

I just finished my 20k service (19,300 by me) and with the cool weather approaching it was time for an application of ACF50, thanks to TCF for that tip!!

Now to be sacrilege, I keep this thing spotless like everything I own because I enjoy the cleaning, maintenance and of course the rides!

Time to load up my monkey and go out until the sun goes down!!

Two wheel drive came in use today on a very sandy trail! Glad I serviced the FD! Short kickstand or not, it will be on its side for a little care tomorrow! :cheers: :beerchug:
