Maintenance - Replace Tires

Maintenance - Replace Tires

The Mefo Explorers on the DR have aged out. I was not able to find the correct sized Mitas tires so I just ordered the same MIssion Trail tires Duncan got.

Maintenance - Replace Sprockets And Chain

Maintenance - Replace Sprockets And Chain

On my Virginia Mapping trip, the chain, which was properly adjusted before I left, became so loose it started skipping over the sprocket teeth on acceleration. I'm fortunate that it did not come completely off. 

I'm going to go with the same set from Procycle that I used before with the smaller front sprocket. See the parts tab.

Cam Chain Tensioner Gasket Replacement

Cam Chain Tensioner Gasket Replacement

The cam chain tensioner is leaking oil pretty badly. This is a common problem. According to some Youtube videos I watched, the old gasket can take quite some time to remove.

Gas Cap Venting Fix

Gas Cap Venting Fix

The gas cap on the Mule doesn't seem to vent correctly and occasionally causes the engine to stall forcing me to open the tank to release the vacuum.

Timing Cover Removal

Timing Cover Removal

The timing cover port is completely seized. This is a common problem on these bikes. Procycle sells a billet replacement but getting the original factory plug out is proving to be quite challenging.

Exhaust Header Bolts and Gasket Replacement

Exhaust Header Bolts and Gasket Replacement

During our last ride, both exhaust header bolts fell out towards the end of the ride. Hopefully, I have not burned up the valves.
