    Then when the dreaded Wyoming winter rolled around i decided it was time for a good cleanup and rebuild.

    Bought a JD jet kit and got it tweaked a little better for the altitude/temperature. JD jet kits are worth every penny!

    First day of riding after winter. No trails yet since the mountain is still shut down. But luckily there is a track about 5 minutes from work :D

    My most recent mishap. Last season one of my chain adjustment bolts snapped off so i resorted to the lovely little "Swingarm Buddy" kit, which worked ok for a while. Until the other side decided to do the same and that bolt snapped as well. I bought a used swingarm off of ebay for $80 bucks and slapped it on there.

    Finally made it up the mountain on the bike for the first time this year. Jetting needs a little tweaking but runs waaayyy better than it did before. Also need to tweak my suspension back to my trail setup. After rebuilding i had set everything back to stock and then made adjustments for our local track, so needless to say it's riding like the broad side of a 2x4 on the rough mountain trails. Overall a great day!
