Well it finally happened. I jumped in the Dog House last night at the store and Sonofabeotch did I get myself on the damn door striker! O-U-C-H! Ripped the $hit out of my shirt too.

I remember reading on the LCML how some had modified their door latching mechanisms and got to looking at mine. It looks like I can just re-drill the pivot holes on the lever latches to extend them back towards the striker, and then chop down the striker to tuck it back away from the seat some.

Is this the way to do it or what? I can't remember what exactly was done to make them safer. <IMG SRC="smilies/question.gif" border="0">

Hey Jimmy -

Yep - that's the mod you are looking for. The other option is to try to fit a paddle handle latch there. I have done it using the SOR replacement paddles and BestTop door strikers.

Sorry to hear you got the "Kayline Kidney Bruise", but it was bound to happen.

Why didn't you buy the optional Kayline clothing and kidney protecter belt? <IMG SRC="smilies/clown.gif" border="0">

Krusty, you know I'm always hovering a bit above the poverty line. <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/crybaby2.gif" border="0">

Macgyver -

I'd post pictures, but those doors got mangled the last time I rolled - and I'll take the 5th if ya ask how many times I've gone greasy side up <IMG SRC="smilies/emb.gif" border="0"> I have not gotten around to re-doing the mod to my current doors, since I tend to run either no doors or hard doors.

Bruce, I'm going to guess 4 times. 1/2 in the intersection a couple of winters ago when the Subaru thought it was a submarine, or was that a rolling RTI ramp? Then another 3 & 1/2 times at the Shasta OHV area.

Am I right? Did I win sumpin? <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/fj.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/nuke.gif" border="0">

Jimmy -

Actually, I was thinking of how many actual time I have flopped. Those events sum up to 2. Again - I won't admit to any more based on these facts might tend to incriminate me <IMG SRC="smilies/tongue.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/emb.gif" border="0">

But, since you have such a good memory - I'll gladly buy ya a <IMG SRC="smilies/beer.gif" border="0"> the next time we see each other on the trail.
