    I've seen that lots of people have had good experiences with it. What's your take on the whole "non safety bead" front wheel thing? What wheels do you have on the 990 anyway?

    Ear Plug Recomendations

    Howard Leight Max for me. 33NRR. I buy the 200 pack box for 25 bucks every so many years. I used to wear earplugs for many hours at a time 4-5 days a week. Your ear shape will vary. There are a number of vendors that sell variety packs so you can find some that work for you. I'm a big fan of disposables, especially on a bike. Drop one, misplace them on a stop? Eh I have a few more packs on me.
  5. From what I was seeing, San Diego should start receiving rain Sunday, but the forecasts I see for Ramona, Warner Springs, and Julian show rain coming in starting around 11. I was hoping to get on some easy dirt for a bit on Saturday but I guess we'll see.
  6. Pics of that Indian are not helping me want to not make a carbon tank... Flat track bikes are so cool. Thanks for sharing the photos.

    You know I have a printer and some CF PETG... Do you think the versions that stick out have the same dimensions as the ones that are buried? I have them on the WP48 OC forks on the Harley and I was considering making some covers, but they're fairly well protected. I'd only cover them to keep grit out of the adjusters, especially the teeny 3mm low speed. I was thinking 8mm hex plug and a flange that covers the face. For your stickout version, you could do just a printed cap. Or you could just caveman it on the lathe and do a cap with an internal oring groove for retention. Or you could just text me some dimensions and we can try something...
  8. I just started on the new bodywork, but I guess I can put it back together by next weekend...
  9. I'll most likely be coming by.

    Thanks for hosting! Thanks to Colin for coming out and sharing information and his experiences. Odds are at some point one of us will be in a position to put it to use. @shutterrev

    Caleb Linden: Vista DRZed 400

    Listen closely to those telling you to get the right springs. IMO that should be the very first modification you do. I'm about 190 lbs before gear. 0.51 springs in the forks, variable 6.0-8.0 in the rear(on my DRZ, just for clarity). My numbers are just for a general reference, as I have a larger tank and tower in the front. I only bottom on the very hardest of hits. It's a game changer for bike handling and confidence.

    A DR you say? I recall something interesting happening since you posted your intro...

    Trusted Local Suspension shop?

    George did custom springs and Gobblers for my silly Sportster build. He also shortened the rear shock and provided a spring for testing. It's probably a month or so away from being a rider. I can't wait to see how it feels. He was unreasonably generous with his time and advice on an oddball one-off build. He also serviced suspension and provided springs for my DRZ. He'll continue to get my suspension business and my recommendation.

    So how does one go about finding salvaged bikes like this in general? Copart? Local connections?
