It gets pretty messy on long, highway rides and drips a good amount of oil when parked after a ride. Still runs like a champ though. I just rode her up from Georgia. Leak and all never hiccuped. Back tire was getting sprayed with oil though. Which was a little dodgy . She was parked for 6 months due to issues with an ex and fired right up with a boost. These bikes are amazing. Thanks again guys, feel free to pm me if you need to use any of the tools I mentioned earlier.
I have the service manual that you can borrow and have a filter for the XR that I was about to throw out. You can have the filter. If I weren't so busy I'd offer to help as I've done it before but my free time is non existent.

Already downloaded the manual yesterday and ordered a uni filter as well as the smog block off kit, flush mount taillight, flush mount turn signals, Fmf jet kit, and performance slip on. What kind of filter do you have? If its a K&N i might be interested to compare it with the uni. Thanks

Sorry its not an air filter. Its an oil filter from Honda.

Here's a roundup of the articles on Int-0860 (exempting motorcycles & scooters from paying at muni-meters because there's no place to put the receipt)

New York Times "Councilman Proposes a Bill to Let Motorcyclists Park for Free"

NY1: "Motorcyclists Claim it is Hard to Attach Muni-Meter Receipts to Bikes"

Daily News: "Motorcyclists -- Including some Queens Politicians -- are Revving Mad over 'Unfair' Parking Tickets"

DNAInfo: "Motorcycles Should Park for Free, Bike-Loving Pols Say"

Streets Blog: Peter Vallone and Michael DenDekker to City: Gimme Gimme Gimme

So, guys & gals, it looks like this bill has "legs". If you haven't written your city council member yet - what are you waiting for? If you have, forward them one of these articles and ask them what the status is. Are they willing to sign on as a sponsor? To set up a meeting with to discuss it? We get one shot at this...

Writing more than one can never hurt. I wrote to the one for my residence, one where I work, and one where I "shop" and mentioned that muni-meters stop me from spending money in their community. I am not sure how honest it is but a cut and paste email to anywhere where you "might" shop but can't because of the fear of muni-meter tickets. The more council members hear from the better the chances are of them paying attention to it.

Hey Rich, any way you can list the email addresses you sent emails to?

Also, I assume that if passed, the free parking in commercial areas is only if I was on a commercial motorcycle? Ie midtown and the like. Not paying $200 a month in a midtown garage to commute would be amazing.

Sadly, there is no such thing as a commercial motorcycle; the plates aren't issued by the DMV. The NYMSTF made some inquiries in Albany to see if they could be made available (for couriers, consultants and the like), but got nowhere with it.

So Int-0860 would mean exemption from parking at regular muni-meters, not the commercial-only zones.

The people who have the power to do something about this bill sit on the Transportation Committee. These are the members of the Transportation Committee.

If you send an e-mail, CC it to action@nymstf.org so we can help you with follow-up.

I did it through here

Click on a member and then their email address pops up on the lower right side of their bio.

From what I understand, commercial muni-meter parking will still be off-limits. That is unless you've found a way to get a commercial moto plate.
