I that damn cat.
I hear Honda Chain Lube is just the ticket.
Miss you Brad
When people mention 8020 being expensive... they aren't kidding :huh
These things? $9 EACH (but they do include the set screws )
...and the last two do not even include the bolts
that looks like a love machine...

but they are saving you the time spent learning to weld. and possible lung disease from same
After over a month of fighting between my Colorado local DMV and the state of Nevada..
"the federal government requires you to print your name in blue ink but nevada prints your name with a computer that is not acceptible" type stuff... :huh (at least they paid for all the fed-ex'ing back and forth )
...I FINALLY got my license plates
Check out my bling KTM 950 fairing washers & bolts I used in the mounting....
Now I can claim my Mercedes has genuine KTM parts
Sometimes it is the little things in life.
p.s. turns out they required me to get the vehicle weighed for registration - luckily I had already done it out of my own curiosity so she was impressed when I pulled out the scale sheet
p.s.s. to register this vehicle in Colorado for this year was ~$800. Is there ANY other state that has higher registration fees than Colorado?
hmmmmm Austrian parts on a German vehicle, aren't they gonna hate each other?
It will go all Nazi on your ass, just look what happened last time the two got mixed. Geek will have to call it AdolfVagon now.
$800 for plates / registration, that's retarded.:eek1
The $800 was just the year's registration.
Throw in another $3000 for sales tax and it was an expensive day.
I coulda bought another dirtbike with the amount it costs to register this thing
I was curious so I did some digging and found a study:
Vehicle registration comparison: 2005 Toyota Camry registration in 2006
...where you really start to get screwed in Colorado (and perhaps other states?) is when a vehicle is over a certain weight there is a charge per pound :huh
I think I'll move to South Carolina
Found one more...
2008: Comparison of registration fees for a 2007 Toyota Camry MSRP $22k
I was surprised to see mississippi in second place!
Remind me not to move to Rhode Island :eek1
8.4 % here in Boulder County
California has a weight charge that applies to vehicles in the "commercial" class. Commercial includes pickup trucks but you can have them re-assigned to non-commercial class by adding a camper shell.
Can you do the same in CO if you prove that your Sprinter is a recreational vehicle?
You got a good clerk! Mine looked at my signature and said "does that say Ed or Edward because if it says Ed you are going to have to fill out another form because your driver's license says Edward.."
"Have you had the vehicle weighed?"
"uh.. as a matter of fact I have..."
"good because I need a scale certificate"
"here.. (handing it to her). Out of curiosity... it is a brand new Mercedes van. It has the vehicle weight stamped inside the door on the placard with the GVW.. couldn't you use that number?"
"No.. I have to have a scale certificate".
I bit my tongue thinking to myself "I could have weighed any vehicle on that paper.. it doesn't have any identifiers on it"....
good; no more room anyway.
these prices must include sales tax for first time registration. annual, or biannual re-up is only about 60$. if you have to ask how much dock space is, you can't afford the yacht
Since you bought it out of state, you should have only paid 2.9% state tax, not state and county.
In Indiana, you pay yearly excise tax on top of the one-time sales tax.
I pay a little over $500 a year for a 2006 Sienna and a 2010 Fusion. It goes down each year as the vehicles age.
I'll bet VA too
edited to add: the registration fees on Geek's chart include personal property taxes? That's where they get ya in these parts.
