But, I respect your response.

In the spirit of your post I even went ahead and washed my bike inside and out, so as to begin some preventative maintenance tasks:

Thank you for posting this - it made me laugh out loud and the way my month has been going, it has been very difficult to even smile!

I can understand the screw coming off the motorcycle but I've never heard of M&M's as parts that needed to be reattached - best to consult the shop guide.

I ordered one two weeks ago, received it last week, and installed it on my bike last weekend.

Yep that's it! Front part of rear fender from the top down, under the seat. Some say they are the seat bolts, and they would actualy fit there, but the seat bolts should have large washers and 8mm heads and be silver.

Hey guys,

Just got my FMF pipe in the mail, I started removing my old pipe until I got to the exup part...


what do I do here so I don't throw a code? I don't want to spend $50 on some module.

Thanks.

Pretty sure I've been down some of those roads and over that water crossing, but HighFive swore me to secrecy. The Talimena scenic byway reminded me a lot of Skyline Drive however.

That would be the Ouichita National Forest.

I'm going to try to organize a group ride up there at some point.

Check out the north Texas dirt thread in regionals to be kept in the loop.

Oh I forgot about Skiered who has 50k+ on his WRX.
43,xxx miles. Its been a long cold winter, but roads should be clear enough for riding in a couple weeks...

Note to self, don't buy one of Meefzah's bikes. I wish I had taken my swingarm off for a regreasing more often, otherwise the bastard wouldn't be stuck so bad. Live and learn... fwiw it doesn't take all that long to do the maintenance, its just a bother to skip a nice day of riding weather and spend it wrenching. Maybe one day I'll get a garage...
