I was wondering if one of our sponsors or members would like to do a "clinic", how-to type of demonstration. Specifically, a top-end replacement. The Mamba is about ready for a top end and it would be pretty neat to have the top end done at Dirtweek. I would spring for all of the parts. I would like to see a "pro" do it and give a play by play naration of the process. Is this possible? Would anyone else be interested in have a clinic of this type?
Everyone of two strokes has to go thru this at one time or another so it would be really helpful to members. Post what you think.

As bruised up as I am and as hot as the weather is getting here I probably won't need to do my top end till Spode...uh...Dirtweek. (See Ride reports for the ugly facts).

Ha!

I'm working on keeping my feet straight for the next time, if there is a next time. Thump, Sawblade needs a avatar, whatever it is, it needs to be surrounded by a Ceder tree. A good roosting is coming your way.....:p

Not sure how many top-ends someone will be willing to do... I'm sure Eric will want to ride a little while he's there ;)
