8th Annual RUTS Wrench Day

When is it?             January 9th from 10AM to 4PM


Where is it?          Patton Middle School, 1175 E. 19th Street, McMinnville

Drive into the parking lot on the north side of the school and head to the South East corner. There is an access gate that will be open so you can drive in and unload and then park out on the lot.


What is it?            It’s a chance to do some maintenance on your moto in the company of friends.

Usually the weather or trail conditions are rough enough, and those needed services on your bike have been postponed too long already, so it is a perfect opportunity to Bench Race, do some wrenching, munch on yummies, and recount our trail adventures of the past year.

The details:     RUTS will be providing the pizza for lunch. You bring a tasty side dish or appetizer. We’ll have water and coffee for imbibing too.

We will have a power bleeder on hand for changing your brake fluid, a compressor, and some specialty tools including bearing and seal removers.


Bring your bike and tools and stake out some space in the PMS STEM Lab. Also bring a camp chair. Work or watch!


We have had tire changing contests in the past, so if you are interested in signing up for one this year, please email Katie your interest.


To do list:       Email your attendance confirmation to Katie


Order some wheel, shock mount, swing arm and steering bearings for your bike (especially if it’s been more than a year since you checked them!!).

Gather the fluids, grease, seals, and gaskets you will need.
