Fritz

You're OK in my book Fritz. I have enjoyed seeing everybody's opinions on firearms ownership, so yeah, in my book you did a good job spicing it up.

Back to the bikes...

Got all my parts to hook up the xr400 oil cooler on my XR650L. You can all expect pictures of me pulling out my hair, cursing and throwing tools in the near future... pictures of a hooked up oil cooler might eventually follow.

Try to define your search. Say "Honda XR650l piston JE" and you get 400 different pistons from the XR50 on up.
Don't know why you're complaining. An RM80 kickstand would work great on my RM with a few rocks under it.


I'm calling ebay and bitching again.

It's no longer fun to surf their site. So on that end they haven't seen any of my money in a while.

Yes, I just went through that looking for a 2007 CRF brake master cylinder. I was getting pages and pages of crap "fits 2007"... but it's a 2005!!! Arg. There may be some special search term or something to avoid that, I just haven't bothered to look yet.

Ebay was trying to be more like Amazon a few years ago. Since Meg left, they F'd it all up. Some group of overeducated MBA's decided to use cool tricks to justify their ridiculous rates. They put our manufacturing out of business. Them and PayPal.

This is the XRL thread. I/we all, come here to discuss XRL's.

There are numerous threads down in CS&M to discuss guns, gun rights and each others opinions on guns.
Please comment on guns, religion, politics and other such shit down there please? Just make sure you put on your thick skin when in the basement. You'll need it.

You gun owners have to stick together or you'll loose it all. If I lived in your country, I'd join the NRA.
And according to FBI stats, more people are murdered with baseball bats than guns...

Now for the XR part. I am selling mine just the way it sits, but ofcourse I have the S&H handicap. Shipping from this state is a pain.

I have a line on a small truck, soo if someone were to purchase my XR, I can get it as far as Denver, CO. Buy the pickup and haul the Tiger I bought back up to Alaska.

I would also consider trades on a small truck in NW area of CONUS.
I don't have a small truck to trade, it's a big truck, and worth more than $3k... and my wife would kill me if I got rid of it after all the work I've put into it.

If you can convince my wife that I should buy your XR and then sell mine, I'll take it! haha

I just discovered this no-battery, crank powered, LED headlamp. This is a nice item to pack in your backpack, or tool tube, when you will be riding after dark. You can use the headlamp to repair a flat tire, or find your way around the campsite.



You can buy this item for $9.99, delivered, at eBay. Crank the retractable handle for one minute, and you will get 40 minutes of light.

Well, I re-jetted my carb today. The 55/158 combo I was running after I did Dave's, err, Brian's, or is it Brave's? Mod were running way rich. Sooty exhaust pipe, terrible mileage, my buddy riding behind me complaining about the smell. I was getting 50mpg with the p.o. installed 50/162 jetting, now I've been getting 35.

I went down to 52/155 this time. I got the mixture set pretty close this afternoon, but tomorrow I'm going to get it warmed up all the way and set the mixture screw (the Spud way), swap in a new plug, and go flog it for a while and check the plug after.

On another note, I'm really glad I checked my chain sliders when I replaced my chain. The front was falling apart (replaced with an XR600 roller) and the rear was worn down so far that the chain was cutting into the mounting bolts (replaced with OEM slider, $10 from RM ATV).

How does the headlamp repair a flat tire? Shove it in the hole to keep the air from coming out?

Just want to be claro.If I had fifty of these and 500,000 rds min. I would nearly sleep sound at night. It's all about being able to deliver as much lead as possible around the perimeter of my property. The only place I have where I should be safe. If all I can do is keep firing then I want to be able to keep firing. Has anyone here even had a "bad guy" draw down on them or been shot? I have been lucky but have looked down the barrel a few times and I wished I had what they had. Now I do.

GOOD! I'm glad you made that decision! I carry to protect my family, and myself.
