Loud bikes get bad gas mileage, piss off the public and get riding areas closed; it's Karma. If I mis-read this, I'll recant.

Oh thanks ADVB, PRO and SAGE for the advice on the tires! Sounded like you were using 150's on a stock rim. I will stick to getting the 130's.

There was a time in the 90's when people (crack heads) were stealing spark plugs for crack pipes. Got to the point you'd carry a spare on you.

I've just fitted a front braided line from Procycle to my DR this afternoon and it has the plastic housing. The line is Galfer brand who I understand are fairly well known and respected in the brake pad market so it should be good stuff.

Pay attention to the Banjos before you fit the line as there is a top and bottom, one end has a straight banjo the other is slightly bent.

What a great group!

Last week I posted a wtb in the flea market, looking to replace my missing rh mirror on the DR I just picked up. A great member from California has shipped a spare he had, and asked for nothing in return, not even postage. I've found a terrific site filled with amazing people.

Correct me if I'm wrong (can't be bothered heading out to the garage to check, as I use it in my Vee), only the Rotella 5-40W is rated as synthetic and the 15-40W Rotella is Dino.

Royal Purple's mc specific Max Cycle 10-40W for my DR, with 3000 kilometer (1800 mile) oil changes, no automotive duration oil change intervals with my roadie thanks and fuck the intervals specified by Suzuki.

And most importantly, I don't treat the transmission,
like a teenaged paperboy's 125 motocrosser.

I do believe you are right on the Rotella oil.

eakins (or anybody)--- Would that iridium plug be the NGK CR10EIX ? Thanks

Indeed... My bad... That's still the stuff I use it is 5w-40 which makes even better cold starts. I must be getting old.

i got my barkbusters at twisted throttle thinking they were the only carriers as well. while i like the product fine, twisted throttle was a bizarre company to deal with. slow shipping, strange product invoicing, poor customer service (i called to ask why my order was taking forever to ship and got something of a curt reply) and when the box did arrive, it wasn't packed in a confidence inspiring way.

i sort of wonder how companies like this stay in business.
