1. Hey everyone, We’re going to start a weekly email to surface interesting threads in the forums. No worries, you can easily unsubscribe if you don’t find it interesting. If you’re like me, it’s nice to have someone willing to poke around a big community like ours and find the most interesting stuff. Saves time and I hate missing something great. It worked really well when we had someone discovering the best photos for the home page rotation back in the day. And if you have something fascinating to post, maybe this email does everyone some good by getting it noticed. Let us know what you think when you get it. Your feedback will make it better as we go (thread). Thanks! Baldy & rudy1220

    My NX650 engine all buttoned up after being rebuilt.
    Note the addition of an XR600 rocker cover for the manual decomp. Inmate Kenno's suggestion.

    to be frank

    buy from XRs only and have it shipped.

    I got quoted over $1000AUD to have big fins welded on last year. FT. Went to XRs only for only $300USD.

    Nope.:jack

    I'll put the right one up in a sec.

    Todd Carney pissing in his mouth is not what that is supposed to be...

    Link fixed now, I'm glad I looked at my notifications before turning of the computer tonight, making one unsuspecting person look at that pic is to many (and I'm glad it was the censored pic I used in the other thread and not the un censored one).
