    Clogged fuel filter. The Strom's fuel filter is built into the fuel pump. It's a known issue. I did a check of the fuel system and wasn't hardly any fuel coming out. The official fix is to replace the whole fuel pump assembly. Someone has come up with a method to bypass the filter and add an external inline fuel filter.

    Took about 2-3 hours of work, but now it runs like it always has again.

    I changed the oil and added Sea Foam to the fuel and the oil.

    Not so easy to find, so here are coords: N35.54517 W89.89067

    About a mile of hard pack gravel. Any street bike can do it. I suggest staying off highway 51 for the best riding experience.

    If its not one thing it another, do you guys know a good car mechanic? My car is leaking coolant and I can't figure out from where. It might be a bad thermostat or maybe a leak in the hoses somewhere. The radiator doesn't look cracked but something is not right because the car almost over heated today. It's. 2000 Toyota Camry

    4cly or v6?
    A warning so no surprise but most leak when water pump going out if it looks like it's leaking from engine side vs radiator side. Radiators leak with hairline crack. At first is not a constant leak cause can close when cold and expand and open when hot. Not usually thermostat unless you just changed it and it didn't seal. Call napa and price new pump, hoses and thermostat and coolant, you'll be surprised how cheap it is to change it yourself.

    The motor is turned sidewards on the 4cyl and belts and pump are facing passenger fender well. See where its leaking from. Most Waterpumps have a weep hole under the pump shaft that leaks to tell you pump is bad. You can take it to Donnie and be done with it and know it's fixed right or take advantage of a nice afternoon and tackle it your self. Id offer to help but tomorrow is a Iate day at work for me.

    I've dealt with Owens Alignment before and they were fair (Donnie Owen per Justin above). They're out towards Oakland on 64. The other one I trust is Integrity Auto in Bartlett. A coworkers neighbor owns it and I've used them on multiple occasions.

    My truck is there right now. I left it before I went on vacation. He is top notch and very fair. He is the only one that touches my truck besides me.

    jamie says he's coming by my garage to put on some new tires. we could hit a local bbq place afterwards if you're ambivalent about the time. He should be pretty fast at this, i think he's put about 25 sets of tires on that bike by now.
