    Just a belated follow-up. Pro Cycle’s new website is requesting you to log in and change your account password. I thought I did that but could not get an order to process. I reset my password (again??) and was then able to complete my recent order.

    Thanks for the very fast processing and shipping. DR650 goodies on my porch in under 48 hours!

    My I.T. guy Ryan believes he found the glitch that was stalling the payment processing for some customers. Something to do with the fields for Year, Make, Model and comments. I'm told they have been moved off the payment page and things seem to be working correctly.

    Hehe...no stalling for me. My money was gone lickety-split! No problem there.

    Course, my new IMS gas tank was in my hands lickety-split, also. :thumb

    :lol3 This was before I moved here and subjected to regular bonus loop acclimation. The ride was relatively easy except for a short muddy section that gave me a little bit of trouble. Other than that, it was fun.

    But now that I live here, :whipthe beatings have commenced.

    Are new orings recommended when doing an oil change or can they be reused?

    The 4R is white- I'm having a very hard time coming up with the correct part number for the wheel- so far I have found 3 wheels, all are completely different- yet show the same part number????- one of which does look like my wheel.:scratch

    I would confirm it with the Toyota dealer where you bought. Then search for price if they can't match what you found. The dealer near me is good like that. I bring in prices of stuff from other dealerships websites and they confirm the part number for me but can never match it. :dunno

    Great post @cyberdos, I have a broken one the 'tinker' bike and I didn't realize it was a stud that could be replaced. Any tricks to getting the old one out? I'm pretty sure I have enough left to get a pair of vise grips on it.

    Here's the video. Sorry about the flickering. Not sure what's up with that.



    And some pics.

    What mud? :dunno

    You're right about the rest of it. BDR's are mostly big bike friendly.

    It's easy. Heat the area up a little bit because it's loctited on then vice grips will do fine. Red loctite it back on.

    pic of the broken one on the way out:
