No, one joke per ride.
I was joking about missing the road trip.
PS: honkey squared, do you have a can permit?
Suppressors don't require a permit in Ahia, just a $200 tax-stamp after passing the background check...you do need CLEO sign off, an LLC, or form a legal trust (the latter being the easiest/cheapest if your local sheriff is an anti gun dickwad, some are).
I don't currently have a can, have had them in the past tho. I do have an SBR tho, and have owned MG's too the process is the same for all of 'em.
Stand down soldier. The girls won't be dating for at least 15 more years.
Need some help finding a part for a 1979 KZ650 SR (KZ650-D2). Apparently it's been discontinued and not a single dealer in the U.S. has one left-over in their inventory. What I need is the swing arm sleeve (#6 in the diagram below) that the bearings ride on. Kawasaki's P/N was 42036-1012
Unfortunately a sleeve from a B3/C3 model won't work as those models used bushings rather than needle bearings.
Can you mic it and get a piece machined to fit?
Have you tried the Rice Patty in Columbus? http://www.ricepaddymotorcycles.com/
I couldnt get the link to work so here is their info.

guesstimating from the picture, I'm saying its a 6 inch piece of 1/2 in pipe nipple, sans threads...I'll stick one in the mail tomorrow
seriously tho, it shouldn't be too hard to match up something on such a simple shape
Yeah, I have all the dimensions off it, the problem would be finding someone with a 16mm drill bit long enough to bore a 9" hole and not have it drift off center. Would also need to be hardened.
O.D. = 22mm
I.D. = 16mm
Length = 8.8125" (8-13/16")
I think Whitey has the best idea to call the Rice paddy. If they don't have it they might be able to cross reference another bike that used the same part.
Oversized bar stock, drilled to 16mm, then turned to 22mm OD, then hardened, is how you'd do it.
I also spotted this blurb
Broom stick and duct tape as a shim is how I roll.
That does explain your mesh MC jacket made from an old potato sack.
It works, however I am always getting hungry for chips when I wear it.
Evening... My 640 exploits continue! If any of you have followed the 640 threads, you may have seen the HID headlight update that dirty_sanchez did on his (now my) 640. If not, and you have a little time... http://http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=197163
Anyway, when I got the bike, the low beam ballast was hosed. You'd hit the switch and it'd flicker but not fire. I ordered a set of H1 bulb/ballasts for $38 on eBay and got them in today. Two wire hookup. All I had to do was replace the bulb and ballast on the low beam side. I was done in half an hour and really wanted to try them out. Once I got out of town, I hit the high beam. Dirty had wired the switches so I could have the high beam on by itself or high and low at the same time. When that high beam lit, I could see every reflector for at least half a mile. Not "hey, is that a reflector down there?" but "Hole LEE COOOWW! This looks like a runway!" I've never seen motorcycle headlights this bright. I wish I'd have done this on my EXC when I had it. If you have a separate high beam bulb and low beam bulb, I'd at least look into this. You could probably put everything together for $150 or so. The low beam didn't seem to bother anyone, or at least they didn't bother to flash me. I used to hate riding at night. I did fifty miles tonight just because. These bulbs are only 35W as opposed to the 55Ws that come stock. Not bad, at least twice the light and a little more than half the power draw. I'm really liking this thing...
Those who've ridden one at night know what I'm saying.
No doubt. Best lights ever put on a motorcycle....ride home with 'em every night. BTW, Silverstars are the shiznit in the Strom.
I'm always getting flashed with the low beams on. So I flash back to prove the point and they end up in a ditch because they can't see anything but a giant white spot for three hours.
