Great suggestion. 2 trash bags should be perfect. Thanks.

Still think it's the tire but won't know till I get a chance to change it.

The coveted one is the x40F0x titanium muffler. https://docs.google.com/a/mxrob.com/...44j_68fdsm79hf
The x24F0x seems to be a Hayabusa muffler.

Well, in trying to save myself some work I made myself twice as much...

Decided I was going to polish the header pipe tonight. Well, being the smart guy I am I decided "Wire wheel? F#*@ that!" I got a glass beader! If you decide to polish your header pipe DON'T glass bead it! The finish it leaves will now take me 2 days to sand out. Yeh, I had all the paint stripped off in 3 min flat...but I see A LOT of sanding in my future!

Nice.

Anyone interested in buying one of these sweet new petcocks I'm fabricating? Only 129.99, crudely cobbled together from stuff I found at a Lowe's.



In all seriousness though, I had to share this when I saw it. Thought we only saw stuff like this on KLRs If it keeps you riding though, more power to ya (perhaps not literally though).
