Troy got us rolling again and we dropped down into Gardner Canyon. Just as we arrived there, Jim's bike started acting up and wouldn't idle. Here he is revving the throttle and trying different idle jet settings. Jim suspected that the drain hole in the bottom of his air filter housing may have allowed water in. He was missing the pinch hose that is normally there. I thought it acted like it had gunk in the float needle seat.
Jim couldn't find an idle adjustment that helped much but he could keep the bike running as long as he gave it enough gas. We continued on like that. Troy led us through some beautiful country, more deep water crossings, and a stretch of trail with great water bars for jumping. I even got the big KLR off the ground, though the jumping may have contributed to the eventual failure of the Shoe Goo holding my instrument cluster in place. This was an old repair that came apart towards the end of the ride. I could easily repair this after getting back home.
Note the altitude on the GPS. Much of the ride was between 5,000 and 6,000 ft.
