I know YOU are looking for a building but the type you want I don't think I have. I can do 10,000 sq ft for under 15$ a sq ft probably under 10$ but I don't think you want the building I have.. I can do a norsteel building, I am sure they would let me but its a different department... www.norsteel.com

And the buildings I sell you can see at www.futuresteel.com If you want something like that I will give you a SMOKING deal... COST...

hmm... can you say workshed?!! any chance we can make steel look not like steel? or attach siding (like those smart wood panels) to it to hide the industrial look? can you put windows in the sides? we may need to talk!

You saw my current shed, I want to build 24'x12' in something a little more substantial and permanent.

Osteo no problem at all you can put vynal soding on it REALLY EASY... But you can paint the building no worries without effecting 30 yr warranty, it looks white anyways, only up close can you really tell its steel(galvalume) plus there is a way to classify it as "temp" not to mention many ways to do the footer, floor, foundation.... I can make your same size shop you have now, cheap. and completly steel.. There are a ton of options with these buildings.. plus you one up then most cause I would be there to help put it up.. Putting your own endwalls is easy too. 2x4, 2x6, stud wall and whatever material you want. You can put windows in the side, but if its just for natural light, skylights WAY better, they are 2ft wide and ten long, green. clear, yellow.. Even if I didn't work there I have to admit the building I sell is pretty cool shit, the size you want we could put up in a weekend.. If you want to see one up close lemme know. There are 3 within 5 mins of me (claremont) 15 mins NW of you. (also alot of fun roads, and a couple fun trails close by) You said you know were Coppins Corners is, I am south of that about 5 mins so anytime you want. Also how much you want for them risers you said you had? Monday I s the first and only dealership service my bike is getting so as long as everything goes well...... ITS MOD TIME!!! See ya later smog thingy, 1.5pnd gone and 5-7 more ponies... (apperantly) lol....

hmm, we'll need to talk.

Risers, you can order them from here:
Risers

or

Here

I would suggest Forward Risers for you, but you will also need to decide if you are going to get different bars as the sizes are different.

Which ever you choose, we can probably pick them up as they are in just outside of Belleville (or I can get them for you). The quality is good, they are friggin strong, I have had them on my bike for 3 yrs now and no problems. The 450 has them on there as well.

Actually I put a set on Christine's bike... when you are over next you can check them out as even on her bike they are needed.

Quick question for everyone local with LC8's about oil and all others for tires.
I am about to do my first oil change. What are you using and where should I get it. Do I use the stock stuff from the KTM dealer. I have always used AMSOIL and MOTUL for my toys.

Tires, about to put them on too. Can I spoon them myself, what about balancing? Need it? Where do you get them mounted if you do?

Thanks

Oil : MOTUL 7100 - Parker Bros. or anywhere you can get it for that matter.

Tires: take your wheels to Rosey Toes - $10/wheel... you can't beat that!

For the summer I like using AMSOIL 20-50, fully synthetic, JASO-MA and seems to hold colour(breakdown) in these LC8's the longest.
As far as the tires are concerned, I always do my own tires as this is the only chance I get to check my wheel spokes too. (I torque them from the inside)
I know the SER wheels are far superior to the ADV ones, my front one at 5K was 60% loose spokes. This "procedure" should be carried frequently especially the way we use our bikes.........

What's the standard for the lc8, 10-50 right?
20-50 too thick if it get cool?
7100 comes in 10-40 or 20-50. Which do i go with?

Diablo, good point about the rims, after the LOB and JK ride, think i might have to check that.

I'd stick with the whatever-50 man, I ran Mobil 1 10-40 for about 2K and it turned to molasses . What I find about the Motul is that it breaks down fast. Best luck I had so far was Amsoil, cheaper too
