    I know, it's lame.

    My first banning came when I used a "your mom" joke in a section of the site called Jo Momma. How ironic.

    Coincidentally, I've been permanently banned from JM as a result.

    Fellas,

    Since my ride report to Baja (and some other posts of my bike), I've had several people PM me, asking about how I built my Pelican topbox with the RotoPax gas tank "on the cheap." In total, I spent less than $100 on this set-up including the RotoPax tank and mounting kit. There are pros and cons to my set-up, but I wrote a build-thread on how I did it.

    Here's a picture of the top box:

    HERE IS THE BUILD LINK




    ALSO, I'm now authorized with RotoPax to sell inexpensive "factory second" 1 Gallon gas tanks. These have a slight discoloration on the INSIDE of the neck and that's it; otherwise, they are the same as what you get on the site.

    If you're interested in buying some PM me.

    Here's a breakdown of the prices:

    1G Red Tanks for Gas: $30/each (MSRP is $50)

    1 Pack Mount: $25 (same as on the site--these aren't factory seconds).

    1 Extension if you want to mount two 1G tanks with one mount: $15 (reg $20)

    1G Water tanks (white), These aren't factory seconds but I can sell them for $25 (MSRP is $30).

    I can ship them or you can come to Bountiful and pick them up. I'm also frequently in Salt Lake and could meet you.

    I will also do a bulk deal if you want to buy more than 10 of any one item, but I better not see this stuff on eBay.

    Steven

    I bought a new helmet and pissed my wife off.
    :cry:cry
    So, I need to sell last years helmet. It's a Joe Rocket full face, pointy thing. Looks like the big dollar units, with the face shield and the visor, all intact.
    $55 or best offer.

    It's matte black. Size medium.

    Also, since I have a new helmet, deoes anyone want to get out for an early morning poke around above the "B"? I know it's not real exciting, but it gives me a reason to put my dirt tires back on, and get rid of the Super Moto set up for good. And I have to look at houses at Noon, with the wifey too.
    Gotta put our bikes somewhere, right?
    801 251 6186 if you are up for it.
    Same number if you aren't and want to go anyway, it's what I do. :lol3 Dress warm, might be chilly up there, it snowed yesterday, but I am hoping it all melts today? :evil

    Just south of Cedar City, immediately off of I-15. Worth the 10 minute detour. :clap

    I still have a 19" rear tire here, I got it for free, and it's got at least half the tread on it.
    Trading for a kick in the sack, since they are so popular now.
    Or a wobbly pop.

    Or a whatever. High five.

    Also, there is a street ride going down today from Bountiful, up Trapper's Loop and presumably back. Starting at Adrenaline Motorsports, which is coincidentally having some big sale.
    I guess they didn't get the Memo about work on Sunday. But then, it doesn't sound like work much.
    We might ride, but might not, having a case of sore throats around here.

    What happened, did everyone get banned on Sunday? :D

    Looking for a recommendation for a front rim job. :evil
    Darn thing is egg shaped and it's really getting on my nerves.
    I think I can unlace and relace it all, but getting it trued is another matter.
    If anyone wants to offer up a suggestion about where to pick up another rim, that would be good too.

    I bought my current wheel on ADVrider, but got burned bad (arrived bent like this), so I don't think I am going to buy another used wheel without trying it first. Having said that, if someone knows someone with a used DRZ/KLX front wheel, it's worth a shot. I can at least see it in person and give it a spin, see it it's straight.

    Warp 9 is relacing front rims onto both my & Trailtwister's BADBs this week. Their price is VERY reasonable for the work involved.

    Call'em! :D

    Check out what i found in my BRP oil tonight!

    [​IMG]

    nice oil farkle heh?

    bike runs great. I'm thinking that it's to hold the piston pin in place. looks about like that part. did the rings fall of 2010 and the bike doesn't burn oil, so i don't think the piston pin has slid out of place to eat the cylinder.

    when the new rings went in it was not I that place the piston pin holder ring, but rather ninja mechanics so it may be something else, but that's the only part that comes to mind having done xr top ends only three times.

    thotz? I'm thinking the big trip next weekend might be better to do on the xr400 (for sale, in theory) since i don't have an evening to tear the BRP down by then. The 650 runs like a champ, so i'd hate to leave it. Would the pin slip and eat the cylinder? Anyone have time to rebuild it before the weekend trading for organic farm eggs and the opportunity to walk my gorgeous german shephard???

    Certainly looks like a piston circlip. How would it get down the cylinder wall?
