    they (the two ktm dealers I have dealt with) either don't mess with it or don't know about it.

    others either don't seem to have much trouble or just don't mess with it.

    I used to just squirt some carb cleaner in it, vacuum it out and call it good but it's just one of them things that just grates on ya (or maybe it's just me)

    threads do appear to be a little crossed.

    That'd bug me, too. If the manual calls for it, it's probably a good idea to at least try to get the crud out. It looks like it'd be awfully easy to clog, or partially block.

    Frakkin TomTom. 1.7 Gb map update is taking forever. I hope it's done before Dad beats on my door at 6 am. I want fibre dammit.

    Dad was getting a little grumpy this afternoon. I figured out it was due to his mandatory attendance at his sister-in-law's birthday party this evening. They've hated each other for 30 years.

    We were trying to order at McDonalds and a wizened hag with an O2 concentrator got in the way. She ordered (took forever), partially paid, and started wandering around getting her drink, napkins, etc. Register Boy couldn't take our order until the hag paid, and Hungry Dad got pissed. When she finally got back with the money, Dad suggested that stepping on her O2 line would speed her up. Loudly. I don't think she appreciated his humour, and I don't think she realized he wasn't joking.

    I'm thinking bedliner. I've used roll-on before and it's kind of a mess. I suspect that the deck renewal slop is similar. Now that I think about it, I've got some spray primer that's getting old. I could use that up and make the the spray-on bedliner go further.

    The hinges worked great. I used the included wood screws for now, but I'm ordering T-nuts for a nearly flush fit opposite the hinges. The marks on the plywood are from me buzzing off the tips of the wood screws. I knew I'd rake my hand or knee on them if I didn't trim them down.

    Scribing an irregular cut isn't fun, especially on something as nice as that.
    I'm guessing perfection was attained, though.

    I don't know if you have a branch close, but Fastenal carries a good selection of T-slot hardware. I ordered 20 of the little 80/20 brand stainless steel nuts for my roof rack.

    I finally got Dad's TomTom up to date and apparently working properly. Now I'm updating my Garmin. I should kill wifi so the bandwidth hogs won't have a chance to spike the giant download when they wake up.
