1st Time Out - Deepwater
I went to Deepwater on Sunday, since it's the closest. My first time on this KTM and on dirt in many years. Although I did tweak/Pop my knee catching myself up a hill one time, but I have to say, it was an awesome time! The bike needs some adjustment definitely stiff and seem to run very hot.

RE: 1st Time Out - Deepwater
You are absolutely right Animal, pretty small place, but I hadn't had a chance to get out over the summer, and I was itching to go. It was fun being on the dirt after all these years. Can't wait to get back out, but it might be a few weeks since I hurt my knee. Planted my right foot climbing a hill and the knee popped. It's hell getting old! LOL

Looks like a 400, I don't remember what you said you had. Was it busy there at all? I quit going there because of the nasty mud and a lot of people were getting killed there, I think because it was overcrowded and inexperienced people.

There only around 10 people there. Some water, but. It bad. It was fun to get out, but my first time and I was by myself so not too crazy!

Cooling fan will help a lot, oversize radiators, and Evans coolant. You could shop E bay this winter and get a good deal on these. Cheaper to keep her Cool than too keep overheating,I also suggest the Dirt Trix timing chain tensioner if your top end is noisy.
