I did. he said take this anti inflammatory and come back later. It went away for a while but has come back since Saturday. Don't know if it is riding, crossfit, or computer / work related... or just old and beat up...

Hey backwoods I have a problem with my right hand and wrist burning like mad on the FZ after about 50 miles of staying at the same speed, I have torn ligiments in that hand yeard ago, and my finger still isn't 100% so I said what the hell ill try one of those 5 buck cramp busters. I haven't got to ride more then just to my dads shop and back but it does alow you to completly relese your fingers from the grip and still hold the throttle upen with just down presure from your palm. might be worth a try. ill give a report on it later but it will be a few weeks before I can ride.

I have one of these throttle lock, but my grip is narrow and I only install it on interstate runs. Thinking about adding a kaoko throttle lock soon.

I looked at one of those but the cramp buster is so simple. I only have problems in the FZ I can do 300 miles on the old XL and my hand never hurt. The last two times I road. I actully focased on why it hurt, I couldn't relax my right hand and hold the throttle at all, the crampbuster let's me relax my fingers enough to let my forarm rest but still controll the throttle, but like I said I have yet to test it on a longer ride. But for 5 bucks it was worth a try. I also want a lock for interstate runs, might be my next buy.

now my first thing would be suspension adjustment, do so in two click intervals, and keep a pad with you , right down the way you turn the clickers and how many clicks you go each time, this will allow you to return to where you started with out having to remember just how many clicks you turned the clickers.
Took your advice... Most obvious difference I found was the seat that said "EXC", so I replaced that... Then there was the electric start and I liked that idea so I found a 250 RFS motor with electric start and stuck that in there along with a battery... That fixed the flywheel issue too. Oh and added a headlight, little bigger gas tank, spark arrestor muffler, 18" rear wheel, 52 tooth sprocket.... Yeah this thing really chugs now.

You know what the worst part about riding a motorcycle in the rain is? It's not the slipping and sliding around of your rear tire or the enraged cagers trying to kill you. It's having your raingear fail directly over your nipples and underneath your armpits and having to walk into a store like that.

Mine tends to fail in the crotch area

Ok, just putting some feelers out there, here in the next couple of days I will probably be putting my '07 Wee-Strom for sale, got a new baby coming and could use the money more than the bike. So if you or someone you know might happen to be interested in purchasing a low mileage (~9k) Wee keep an eye out in the classified area, she'll likely to be there in the next few days.
