    Really Trying Hard
  1. Can you bring some of those stickers to the Tech Day I would buy one or two for sure.
  2. Sure but you will have to deal with my wife..... I place my money on her FYI
  3. I have done that before, it can be a real pita of a job, if that is your plan get here early cause you might be here for a while. I close the doors at 4, anything left in the garage by default becomes mine.
  4. I think 2/10 is going to have to be the date I’ll be out of town following weekend and then we have desert dash on the 24th so what does the collective say?
  5. Then maybe the last saturday in jan or first in feb to accomodate anyone needing to do something to their bikes prior to desert dash makes sense?
  6. Well last one was in july and figure with holidays over now might be the time for another one so puttimg.this out there for suggested weekend date. Same rules as last time ill collect oil etc We will have the grill going with and sdar donation jar set up (all of which goes to sdar) Only think peeps are responsible for it taking their used tires home with them.cause i cant put them in my trash. If needed stuff can be shiped to my house in advance and there are three bike shops accross the 78 from within 3 miles. Thoughts? Oh and friendly dogs always welcome.
  7. Can u please update the first thread with a map so people can easily find the location to meet, by people I mean me. but others might benefit as well
  8. Welcome from another esco dweller
  9. Its a small thing but if you paint the underside of the cabinets a high gloss white it helps with reflective dispirsal of light and makes the areas a little brighter just my .02 i did that to yhe back wall of my garage for that very reason
  10. Had an 07 dl and rode the wheels off it was able to get what i wanted with madstat and a micro screen not working w the new one i have
  11. If you know the boxes will be level with the top of the bed rails then a tonou cover will work as well but it limits you to that height though they are pretty easy to take on and off when not needed i stored mine on the ceiling of my garage
  12. Oh it happend not only was i the one to replace said pipe I still have it in the garage... Bummed your leaving now who am I going to sucker into going to rides spur of the moment cause were bored
  13. Looking for someone local that has either of the following bike that might let me take it for a ride here is my situation. i have a 70 mile commute one way I am looking for a bike that get 50ish mpg commuting and is between 600-800cc the biggest issue i have is finding a bike that give me clean air to ride in i have a 990 and gen2 dl1000 neither of which is proving to be a good tool for this job so hoping someone would let me try a quick sprint on the freeway to get idea if either of these are viable options i need an upright riding position which is why i gravitate towards these kinds of bikes so.....
  14. That looks like a very porous casting based on the grain structure in the picture. Is the piece removed from the engine already? If so it will have to be baked to remove as much of the oil residue as possible for it to be tiged and even then it is a very iffy procedure. You are very close to a gasket mating surface so there is the potential for warpage as well. If it is off the bike I would say feel free to bring it by the house I can take a look at it, assuming your not broken hearted over a total loss if it goes to pot we might be able to do somthing for you, but this kind of part is very hard to weld up, I would say spool gun it instead but then again you have clearange issues around the weld area which inhibits that option as well.
