    by far the best RR I have read, thank you for sharing!
    food for thought and dreams these trips are
    I am novice, and not young, but I have till my 75th YO to get ready
    if you take on newbies for your next Everest trip, I am in. its was always a dream to climb it, but as its is not going to happen, riding to BC will do just fine!

    OK ... so I put The Bitch on the operating table ... ordered 1250 different special tools from KTM ... and opened it up ... looks like a bloody watch!

    This is after I've removed the rotor with the sprag attached







    I had a good look at the sprag but I can't see any wear or flat spots .. oh dear ...









    So I replaced the sprag with another eBay find. Ktm used to sell sprags separately but now they only sell rotors with sprags included .... about £600 ... yes exactly ... my middle finger came right up involuntarily when I read that ... but I got one with the freewheel for £60 I fitted it and had my Pug check it out In a previous life she was a McLaren mechanic ... she gave me the paws up and we gave it a try ...



    Ummmmmmmmm .... .excellent ...... thanks .......

    And fitted that ... crossed my fingers ... sacrificed the neighbours cat .. drank the blood of a raven ... pledged my soul to the devil in orange and black ... pressed the starter

    ...
