    Word of caution on those: They do deteriorate with time and become brittle. I broke the tip of one off in the seal recently. Then reached for the spare - just as old - and it snapped just as easy. Had to buy a new one to retrieve the broken off piece.

    Anyone with an XR250R 1999 or newer want to trade for my 1996 XR400R? It's street legal with Trail Tech Vector speedometer. I plan to clean the carb and replace the wheel bearings in the rear before I trade. It's got high-rise handlebars for those that don't share my being short problem. http://imgur.com/a/RWBOF

    PM me please.

    Looking for a BROKEN mirror from a LC GS or GSA-- I just really need the head. Scratched and beat up/broken is fine (encouraged, even).

    I just want to see how the glass is attached to the housing before I try to take mine apart for a project.

    TIA--

    Does anyone have a clutch-side case cover for a 1996 [or similar] XR600R?

    Anyone have a 1-7/8" Thin walled socket I can borrow? Preferably someone on the west side (Edgewater, Wheat Ridge, Lakewood, Arvada, Highlands/Berkley/etc hoods)?

    I need to swap the ball on our weight distribution hitch and don't have a socket that big on hand. Just need it for a few hours, and I'm happy to pay in beer. Let me know, I'm trying to avoid going to Harbor Freight. Thanks!

    Edit: Nevermind... Found one on Amazon for a good price. I'll likely need it again in the future, so may as well have one in the garage. Happy to lend it out if anyone else has the same need I did. Thanks.

    Thanks for the pm Norm. I am trying to find time to ride to Craig now that I have an excuse. :lol3
    Business gets pretty busy for the rest of the summer but I may find a way. If you head this way let me know.

    I will set the seat aside, have someone coming to look at the DR Friday. But I will keep the seat for you.

    Does anyone have a set of front wheel bearings for a DR 650? I just realized I have a stack of rears and no fronts.

    I think I may. I will check when we get back D.C. If so I will let you know. Your seat will get to west fest.

    Is anyone selling a smallish hard sided camper or toy hauler? We have been shopping for one but have not found anything very exciting.
