Bought it wrecked w/ 42,500 on the gauge.
Used jb waterweld putty for that job and it worked well. I've heard of people using teflon tape too.
CONGRATS, Ryan!!! How many of those miles were done on one wheel?
Voted - good luck!
Voted! Even posted on my wall. Maybe I can get a few non-BMW friends to jump on the bandwagon ...
Priorities, man! Where are your priorities??
I know, I know...missing these RTE's is killing me!! LOL, Rick and Guy.
What's the normal show time for a RTE?
Good day for a long run.
Looks like you had a great ride!
Eppa was telling me the other day about your bearing failure and how your bike is not really an off road bike....
A famous spot.
Now that I am Farkle-Complete (well, almost, still need a new rear tire), I decided to take the XRL out for a little giddy-up tonight. Man, is that a different beast than the GS! Completely different ... everything. I got used to it semi-quickly though ... and then sat on my GS. LOL! Who would have thought that I would feel like I was on a low-slung cruiser on ole Max? Compared to that 37" perch on the XRL, the GS seems incredibly short. And fat. LOL! But I love that old bike. Let's see how well I adapt to the different riding styles.
I'm thinking of taking an easy ride out West Point way this Sunday. And let me emphasize the "easy" part. I want to see how my "Thumper Legs" do in a basic environment. If anyone is interested in watching me fall and struggle, let me know. LOL!
Must be going around. After only 56k miles on my Strom I blew out a right rear wheel bearing coming down I95 the other day. Guy Young to the rescue. Thanks again Guy.
Got a nifty peice of art out of the deal as well. Outer race was all that was left in the wheel after I removed it using all I had, my tool kit, Guy had to take it from there.
I am sort of a rookie at posting, but I have met many of you at various times. I have a couple of questions that perhaps you guys/gals can help me with. I just got my new to me DRZ400E titled and registered yesterday for an upcoming ride to the mountains with Eddie and Chuck. I purchased a new tail light and other stuff to get my bike inspected, but I think that they will probably ask that I turn my tail light into a brake light. There is an extra red wire that came with the assembly, but I don't know what other "stuff" I need to wire it to the brakes, if that's even possible. Does Guy or anyone have a suggestion?
Last question, I have 5 bikes in my garage (some dirt bikes). I am constantly having to take the dirt bikes to get the carburetors cleaned or something. I have always wanted to learn the mysteries of the carb, if anyone would like to show me how to remove and clean a carb (1995 Honda XR100 specifically), I would pay for your time.
That extra wire is probably for the brake light. Not knowing exactly what a stock "E" has in the way of a wiring harness and other bits, you may need to add in, and wire a brake light switch to activate the brake light. May need a switch for the front brake lever too. Not sure if VA requires that.
To pass inspection, you'll need a horn, high and low beam headlight, and at least one LH mounted mirror.
I read on some of the forums that folks just get a complete "S" wiring harness which just kinda makes it a plug and play once the (electro) mechanical bits are in place. eBay might be your friend there.
