Cry why...

you won't make a penny.
they fixed that real good by Furloing during a week with a holiday....without kids I would make more that week from the holiday than they will give me, actually voids out my loss, no?
I'll go look, but I don't think they will give us $0.10

Well, let's just say that I had put away enough for the bike and some 'wiggle room. Now I'm wiggling..

no problem, we can do that.

there really is very little you NEED.... and those things are frugal, I'll outline them.

I'll stop over and give it a look-see as to what's there already....
beer works.



Hey Guy, did the unemployment file....well that was fun, I feel so good now knowing I wasted that time just to give them info to (maybe)be used next time we get booted out the door.....seeing as we don't get covered for this week cause it's a waiting week....and we had a holiday....

Thanks! And I didn't think that farklin' was ever about need. WANT is another matter altogether.

You're welcome to come and take a spin since you were nice enough to let me ride your Beemer.. The Corbin seat from my Ninja will be for sale eventually, 'cause I'm putting her back to stock per numerous advisers, and will sell the farkles separately.

Just went for my 1st spin on the Connie.. Very manageable, can get both feet flat on the ground, and took it easy around the turns esp. with the wet pavement. Nice acceleration, and I don't have to bang the throttle full open anymore. Though I think I'll eventually miss how that Ninja screams! Could always tell how fast I was going from the sound of her, while the Connie seems to just purr along and before you know it you're going 80mph in a 45 zone.. Thankfully no LEO's around to give a performance award... I'll pay more close attention to that for sure...

On a side note to Guy and MOB, I went ahead and ordered the water pump from Murph. What a great freakin' guy! Hope to have multiple bags of goodies soon and perhaps, I can entice folks with beers and pizzas to
supervise/advise me how to Get 'R' dun...

Mike,

Be aware, the 49044-1058 Pump ass'y does not include o-rings below:

92055-1424 Shaft housing o-ring
92055-1271 Cover o-ring
671B2525 Pipe o-ring** (see below)

Also recommend picking up"
NAPA hose #7741
**Ford A/C o-ring, part # N806959-S, color green. Works better than OEM o-ring (mentioned this on the carport)

Sorry I missed all the Connie fun. I had duty (24 hour shift mon), just got home. I hate the shipyard.

Congrats on the new ride Mike, Blue is the best color (I had an '01 and my FJR is blue also).

Thanks Guy, I left a message for Murph asking if the o-rings were included, now I know. So I'll get the top 2 from Kawi and the pipe-o-ring from Advance Auto? How about using just some straight hose and NAPA part 7741, or should I do Murphs $60 complete cooling hose kit??

Thanks Roger, and I heard you did some wrenching on it with Tommy and Paul..When ya'll did the carb cleaning do you remember if ya changed the fuel lines hoses? Was thinking about doing it just as a preventative measure...
