If anyone missed it in the JoeP XR thread, a lifter failed in the engine, causing that lifter to scratch-up and destroy the lifter bore in the case. So, the engine case needs to be replaced.
The Red Shift 575 cams also received some damage, but they were sent to Zipper's where they were rebuilt...
Our local Marine Corps League detachment is always trying to find ways to raise some money for the basics (mortgage, utilities, etc.).
We do an annual gun raffle, but honestly I think most people only buy a ticket because they are trying to support us. They do not really think they are ever...
I've got 2 Evotech Tail tidy kits.
As most of you know, I went to the Poly bushings. The vibrations from the poly bushings cause the tail tidy plate to vibrate in two (along with the license plate).
Once, I bought a new tail tidy while waiting on a replacement part from Europe. When the...
Springer, you are doing awesome. You posted yesterday that you were down to 190 lbs and some change.
Crap. I was down at 185 in October of 2013 at my last job.
The company I worked for at my last job had yearly weigh-ins. If you were in the Obese range on the BMI scale, you lost some of your...
My National Cycles Gladiator got scuffed up a bit when I took a drop. That bugged me.
Then a year later, a bracket broke. I welded the bracket back up, but it isn't really straight anymore and I never was able to get the 2 inside bolts to go back in place.
That bugged me, too.
After another 6...
I've got the Braking wheels with the ceramic bearings.
When I got my forks back from Howard this summer, I slathered up my front axle with a fresh coat of grease before putting everything together.
This past Sunday while taking the forks back off (to send to Race Tech), I started to think I'd...
Hey, it's Christmas Time!
Don't sit there earning that fat check for what little you do - fart around to the greatest extent possible!
'Tis the Season to drag your ass. :cool:
Here is a link to the Most Amazing Science Images Of 2014, most using those new animated GIFs to show previews, but...
It appears Twin Motorcycles doesn't currently have any carbon fiber parts, as they have come to some problems with their vendor (vendor went bankrupt).
Has anyone bought a carbon fiber tank cover that they aren't using?
US members preferred, as the shipping overseas is a lot.
thebigman is putting together a group by for these G2 quarter-turn-throttle knockoffs - except these are milled out of alloy (alloy what? I don't know).
Here are the posts from the "Add EBay listings" thread:
I have this build I've been working on in my head that will likely never happen.
So, I'll throw it out here to see how it does!
Get an 88 kit from Hammer Performance (heads, jugs, cams).
Get Darkhorse to work the motor, mill the block, assemble, and tune it.
That's the basics.
There is a spot as I am heading out of town that I enjoy riding on.
There is a traffic light that almost always catches me, then about 200 yards before the road takes a hard 70 degree turn heading out of town. The road has a caution sign showing 20 MPH, but I typically hit it at 60.
I meant to post this earlier, but I got distracted by Neto's awesome video.
This book was OK.
It will probably be better down the road as I recall and understand more of the history behind Harley-Davidson.
It gave me a pretty good feeling/understanding of why Harley was sold and almost died...
Yup. Going to Missouri.
If you aren't interested in seeing JoeP, stay the hell away!
I'll be checking into the Hilton (1329 Baltimore, Kansas City, MO 64105) on Sunday, 09 Nov. and check out the following Saturday, 15 Nov.
I'm being sent up to take some class on how another vendor's...
I have two (2) Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Jackets
Both are Identical.
Both are Size Medium.
Both are in Good shape. One has scruffs from a fall, one has a snap on the sleeve that came off.
One belonged to member BillH. I bought his back when he sold his XR and moved on. He scuffed up his...
Last week, I said Goodbye to my old Motorola V3 RAZR that Slideways gave to me.
As of Saturday, I am the proud new owner of a Caterpillar CAT® B100.
Who knew Caterpillar made phones?
The B100 phone just came out earlier this year, so it has all the modern technology inside.
Now, I have a...
So, my wife has this cat she likes. He has been declawed & neutered, and he is scared to death when outside.
It is getting older and doesn't like to walk down the stairs to use the litterbox.
Instead, it has been pooping on the carpet in the hallway.
Typically, I discover it when I step on it...

I only have 25 of these. They cost me $12 each for the bulk order, and that was a lot of money on a gamble.
These are made of a...
OK, I'll admit that I have not torn the tank off yet looking for this, but:
I'm getting tired of my fuel light coming on at random times. The damn thing turned on yesterday as I was pulling away from the gas station, so I got to look at that irritating bastard for the whole 65 miles.
It did it...
