    oil change a week ago. little leftover residual smuge from around the oil filter. that 883 was oil tight and right.

    How's it feel being able to make a simple turn without dragging parts of the bike on the pavement?

    just a few i've owned from in the past. unfortunately no pics of the XR650L SuMo. Husky was the most fun.

    @bringenufgun, looks like every time you changed homes you changed bikes?
    Nice bikes.

    If you decide you don't like that tall fairing, I'd be interested in buying it off you... I tried to order one of those from Rallyraid recently, sent them an email to follow up, and still haven't heard anything back.

    besides the glamour shot of the black CBRXX and "Night Moves" all at my humble crib. another of it a home base with my V-Strom a few years back.
    i bought and sold a ton of vintage stuff for a long time during the vintage fervor starting in the early 2000's. died down to a dribble now. also had a local dealer cheap selling me all his non-marque stuff for years. those were the days....... DSCN0306.jpg

    have a little financial emergency that popped up with a water leak in my basement discovered late this morning. apparently the frigid weather shifted my foundation which cracked a pvc pipe that goes from the sink in the hall bathroom to the main drain.vanity out, drywall cut out, toilet has to come out, catastrophic for me.
    i'm listing this bike in the flea market to hopefully defer the cost of this repair. $1800.00 takes it with the provision the buyer takes it with the undated but signed off clear title.
    2015 with 2500 miles. stock fuel tank, exhaust and headlight number plate/bezel included. will get more pics in the listing.

    It's a chopper trike, and really small. Has an old 5hp Briggs. Bought it not running, but obviously was rode a bit.

    Biggest expense so far has been replacing the rear axle, which meant everything new form tire to tire. They used some type of chain drive riding mower differential, which was a total mess. I've replaced it with a solid axle, with one wheel riding on it's own bearings so the trike will turn. One wheel drive.

    The forks are longer than the rest of it, so I don't expect it to turn very well. A cool looking death trap.

    Wow "all around" too,awesome,not on a bike ?

    B&S is a 2T I assume.. with a solid axle,you modified it to run/drive on the one wheel by splitting the solid axle++ ?
    "Death trap" yeah there's certain risks involved in this type of vehicle. (Maybe do pm since this is the L-only thread..)

    I’m replacing the front sprocket on my 650 L. I’m sure I’m doing it wrong but I’m gonna put the 650 lR front sprocket on. I know the plate goes in front and screws in but how far idoes the front sprocket go on the counter shaft? Thanks F5A3ADFD-EA55-42EF-A736-850664E3DD6B.jpeg

    It probably won't go far enough until you grind a little bit on the side of the sprocket shown in your photo. Do you have an angle grinder?
