So is it just a drain bolt? I would think a dealer should have something like that in stock... It's probably something that fits a bunch of different bikes.

If you can find the exact specs (make sure you know the length you need) you might also get lucky at a hardware store. The ACE down in Englewood has a good selection of metric hardware. I went in looking for a oil drain plug for a XR250 and found one with the correct diameter and pitch but it was too long for me to install it and run it comfortably..It could have worked but who knows. You might have better luck.

You can always cut a bolt down and reface the threads on a grinder in a pinch.

Between that, teflon tape, and brass crush washers jerry rigging a drain bolt shouldn't be too insurmountable.

How do you think they do it in Meh-he-co?

Several of the auto parts stores in Longmont have regular metric drain bolts. Know your thread and pitch.

I am looking for some used kids moto-x boots. My 8 year old is a size four (adult). Please shoot me a note if you have something cheap. I don't want to spend a bunch because he is outgrowing things loooong before he wears them out. Thanks

Pat

Does anyone around here do metal polishing? I am not sure what would need to be done yet, just some things like rocker covers and brake drums on an old bike.

I think I have some old acerbis ones with turn signals built into them if you want them. You can have them for the steep price of free if they interest you.

Here's a pic of them on the DRZ

It's your lucky day! I even have all the mounting hardware minus 2 bolts. So a quick stop at the hardware store and you're in business! I'll pm you my number. Give me a call or text when you are going to head out and if I'm not around I'll leave them outside for you.

Looking for a yard truck

I'm looking for a decent but cheap yard truck. Just something to pick up firewood once a year and haul bikes to and fro, not a daily commuter. But it does need to be road worthy as I will use it to commute to the trials events (if ever I find time to attend one) way down south.


Here's what I'm thinking.

4 cyl preferred, 6 cyl OK no V8s I value economy.

standard tranny required no slushboxes

4x4 preferred, 2wd OK

Japanese preferred, domestic OK

less that 150k preferred, less than 200k OK

extended cab preferred, single cab OK

Budget is flexible, under $2k preferred, but can push it to $5k for the right truck.

I've been trolling CL for some time now, but everyone thinks their POS is worth it's weight in gold!

If anyone has or knows someone who has a decent little work horse let me know.

flyinghorse150@hotmail.com


My ideal yard truck would be a late '80s Dodge (Mitsubishi) Ram 50 diesel 5 speed 4x4.

Montana 600

I know a long shot, but anyone have a Garmin Montana 600 they would be willing to sell. I broke my 60csx a few weeks ago and would like a Montana, but the price tag is hard to get over right now.

Thanks
