On another note, can we talk about motorcycle lifts?
I like the tall milk crate with a piece of 3/4" ply on top.
But then I got a used Handy lift. Best money I ever spent.
I bought the Tusk Adjustable Lift Stand on sale for some ridiculously low price. I wasn't even looking for a lift stand, but I couldn't pass up the great deal. I think I spent $25 for it, but I don't exactly remember.
This stand is easily adjustable to fit all my motorcycles. This stand is also very strong, easy to use, lightweight, and easy to store. I like it a lot.
[COLOR="Teal"I personally use helium in my tires. Helps reduce overall weight and makes me fast[/COLOR]
Do you mean to say you cut the ball end off? Don't you know you will put your eye out doing that. The ball is there for a reason. Oh and for your information I use two fingers on the lever and maintiane a tight grip on the bars with the other two. This also keeps me from breaking as many of my nails in a spill, silly.
Pretty funny. And this foolish behivior as a kid lead you to now work for Goodyear!!!
A tip of the hat to all the Idahoans on this forum. I just received a Pro Moto Billet, made in Idaho, kickstand in the mail...what a work of art. Truly beautiful. And by the way, it doesn't fit my XR650L with atmospheric pressurized tires.
I used a milk crate for awhile until I walked out to the garage one morning and found my bike laying against the riding lawnmower. I had left the bike on it over night and the crate had buckled.
Since then I have used a solid concrete block with a couple 2x4's on top. Works great but is a heavy SOB to move around and I'm tired of having to stoop over or get on my knees to work on the lower part of the bike. The new lift will also double as a nice work bench for my business!
I'm not a Harbor Freight(HF) fan AT ALL but I have seen enough good reviews, on here from folks I know, and HF's website to take a chance. As you can see I also got the better wheel chock instead of the POS that comes with it.
OK, back to drinkin!
For those running the Powerbomb header:
It is claimed by FMF that it acts as a pre-muffler. Does it actually do this? Or just hype?
But can you check your oil with it? That's the question...
Sounds like a riddle.
Does it work at any pressure?
First set of pics.
Posted write up on spuds cooler page.
Here is the rest.
Nice looking cooler SuperSam! Make sure to report how it holds up to trail riding in that location.
That last pic makes me want to build a buggy. Oh the fun I could have with something like that!
Now that is some serious Tahuya mud fun. Good for you, Samurai.
You're welcome, Samurai. Thank you for documenting your work with photographs, and adding your knowledge to my oil cooler thread.
Picked up a new bag today. Dirt-bike-gear.com. I was looking for a well built, heavy duty, not made in China decent sized bag. I think I might have found it! Made in Colorado, not too big, not too small.... just right. Haven't bolted it on yet, but this'll give you an idea of whay it looks like:
Out my driveway and turn left to get to ProMotoBillet... turn right to get to Rekluse If you are in an ADV mood hook another right and there's HappyTrails
However... if you go straight for a couple of hours you run into the "Black helicopters are cumin" crowd:eek1
I did not notice an appreciable decrease in exhaust volume when I installed the header (I started out with the Q4 on the OE header). I never measured it though, so it might have made it a bit quieter. Cant say for certain one way or another.
Most of Idaho, outside Boise, falls into that category, Red!
P.S. Are you saying the black helicopters are not coming for us?! :huh Oh...I forgot to say XR650L.
