Thanks for the offer, but they don't stock 6V batteries. I don't need it at the moment, but I can't troubleshoot my bike's electrical issues without it (and I have the day off- so, I plan on being in the garage).

just somethin for the local community:

Got a 15% off code for twisted throttle if anyone is ordering anything soon. I think its for the whole order, so it'd be best to do a bulk buy. If more than 1 person is ordering around here we can put it together and just ship to 1 spot

I thought I got from them at the auto show, but then when I went to order it didn't work. Was something along the lines of: IMSNY2013. Is that what you're talking about, or do you have something that single use? If the former, how did I mess it up?

Yeah, its something like that, but I do think the numbers are for single use... not sure if you're missing NY"C"

The show was meh... I left after 2 hours on Saturday (packed), some nice bikes though and I loved the GP section.

I left to go buy a 74' Suzuki GT250, I should have probably stayed at the show hehe this thing needs work, but I can't wait to have it running again. I have no idea where to even get tires for this thing, but ill figure it out. Just got the POR-15 today and hopefully Neftali can paint it.

Sorry to hear about the outsourcing guys, it's a tough thing to deal with.

Who's your paint guy (is Neftali on the forums)?

I'm POR-ing the tank from my 78 GS1000, though I've been holding off out of inertia and a vague fear of messing it up somehow.
I'd love to see a photo of the 250. Holler if you need any help as well. If it isn't too different than its big brothers, I have a ton of experience "fixing" those old zukes from my 850 (I like to think of it as learning by breaking).

Check out my writeup, it's super easy to do. This was my first time and I used EVAPORUST first which was not needed, so disregard.

http://www.svrider.com/forum/showthread.php?t=154997

Ill post some pics, I would be down to work on it asap, but I don't have time at the moment so im sending it over to a mechanic I know to get it running. The story behind it is my co-worker bought it 4 years ago from the original owner who bought it in 1974 and lived upstate, he kept it in great shape and ran it from time to time. My co-worker then ran it hard for a few years and got a divorce and left the bike at his previous wife's house for 3 years in Brooklyn. It sat there for 3 years and I just bought it. It's actually in great shape, but needs the typical things looked over etc... Ill let you know if you want to meet up one of these days, looking forward to the 2-stroke fun.

I was about 50 miles in, and 5 to 7 more before paved roads. No point in trying to turn back, just press on. The water had been flooding across the trail for the previous mile, creating a greasy slick surface. I fell over a good dozen times at least before finally riding it into that deeper section. I took the picture not knowing if I would even see the bike again. The rest of the day and evening was quite scenic but I was in survival mode by that time so took no other pictures.
I did mange to get back to the bike the next day and, with some help, to a carwash and then the highway back to Vegas where I was working.
I really like the bike (04-650), may replace it with the current model.
