May need to involve Harcus for this project.
I wonder what fabrication rates would be for that set up?

Paging Harcus.

Heidenau Tires

Some one said there is a place in SLC that carries these tires? Where.
Anyone hear any more from YOGI?

Ya knot head. I guess you have been pining for something better.
Wood you consider yourself a stud? I thought with a KTM you
might be barking up the wrong tree. How's your aspen?

Nice to see you branch out. Is there a sliver of hope it will be done
soon? How can you tell if it's sap or you're just really enjoyng the ride?

So you were board and the wife needled you into it?

I know you have a woody for orange, but really???

Hope it didn't burn a hole in your budget.

That set up will have everyone fir sure quaking in their boots.

Are you going to leaf the rest alone?

If you have a 2X4 does that make it a quad?

If it's from an orange tree you may get citris where you sit.

I must log off now.

Had to be Jack. Interesting guy. One week it's vintage the next it's
back to exotics. I don't even try to keep up with his rides.
My wifes Carrera is one of his past cars as well as the Roadster I
traded in on it. Almost bought his Cayman, but got the S model instead.

Watch him. Honestly he can sell you anything. Most natural salesperson
I've ever met.

Salt Lake Scooter Company is a Heidenau dealer. I bought a K60 from them in November. Josh over there is great. They are located at 1225 S. Major St. Ph#801-532-2433. I don't think they stock them but they get shipments weekly and will order them for ya. They'll even mount it up if you need.

If there are any other CRF450X owners on here....I know there are!
Looking to sell or trade these for a good rear 18inch knobbie.
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...2#post14933262

These are nearly new red radiator shrouds for the 2005-006 CRF450X. They came off my 2005 year. They were used for a few rides and removed. Awesome shape as you can see. No bubbles.

They may fit the CRF250x and crf450r and other years but it's up to you to verify.

They have very nicely installed graphics as you can see. Save money from buying shrouds and graphics seperately!







For those interested in how I mounted the sensor for the Schwinn bike computer.


I first ground down the mounting surface on the caliper bracket. You can see where there's casting ridge. Had to grind that down to make flat spot. Mounted double sided sticky tape. Then ground down side of the computer sensor a small bit so it would sit flush on flat tape surface. Stuck it on. Then to be double sure it'd stay I made a very small L-bracket and tapped a small screw hole into caliper bracket to hold it in place and hold the sensor down. Added a little bit of sticky tape on the inside of the bracket (top of sensor) to make triple sure.

Yes we had a few of us show up to work on bikes in Phil's awesome garage for a shimming party. Though I dont' think either bikes needed them. Mine didn't. We did check clearances though.

FROG:
Keep me/us all in the loop about Mesquite area trip. I've been wanting to get out there for a while as I've never been riding down there before.


GISKEV:
So what's the deal this weekend, you guys heading down?

I've always wanted that bitch! Too bad I have desert tanks on both my 06 450x and 250x. I'll tell Kim bro though because he still has his stock tank. Nice speedo mod but I put oem Honda speedos on my bikes. They're more reliable because they're mechanical and more visible having a light inside.
Also, I use less tape and grinding but I did have to fab a bracket so it was straight and more appealing. If I find a bike speedo on the street, I would consider this method though on a HUSQVARNA! Thanks for the info

Eh? Bike Graphics

Here is a graphic idea/inspiration that I am considering for my bikes. It isn't original but I am a graphic designer so I'll work on it! Sorry guys but you guys are the ones posting google images so I'll follow suit. Let me know what you think? I have stitches this week so don't punch me out. Also, realize that I am just trying to be funny as the rest of you Is that possible?!
