    Definitely intend to keep the thumb button killswitch. Never know with a carbed bike when the throttle might stick, the XR has a push/pull cable to force it closed, but those can fail. The one on my old one hung up on me once because the cables had never been lubed. The hidden key switch/wires...

    All Honda trail bikes have a key That one’s kinda pointless because it just replaces the killswitch. You could just cut the wires to break the connection and it would start. Still might get one as an extra deterrent, but I need something clever. Or just mount it on the side and have all the...

    Nah. When I got time I’m gonna use some heat tricks to try to straighten it, and modify the stock running light to be a functioning brake light, then I’ll probably just make/buy a plate bracket and mount it under the fender. If I can’t fix this fender an oem one is $60-$75, about the same as...

    Wanted me to haul off that junky eclipse at my grandfather’s and split the money with him... just straight up out of the blue And by pulling it with my truck and a chain... on public roads... Did I mention the main reason it got parked is because the brakes don’t work and the locknuts were...

    Nah, he’s just an idiot. Probably won’t see him again because he started some moocher bullshit and I lit him up for it [emoji23] I just enjoy making Harley people have second thoughts about how manly their bikes really are in comparison to the XR’s [emoji1787]

    Things like that are just make me appreciate dirt bikes and their plastic tanks that much more. No rust, no bullshit. If it gets dirty just clean it out with kerosene or 110+ race gas. XR’s and their notorious crooked rear fenders [emoji23] I think mine has just been flexed to far though...

    I’ve just been waiting on you to get started forever lol At least strip it down and do what you can. Put all the shit in a single box/tote so it doesn’t disappear.

    Mine has been doing good since I got crapatalk pro. It was doing that shit before. And about fucking time [emoji23] While I’m pulling the carb to rejet and install the unrestricted boot I’m gonna pull the header and repaint it too, and since that requires popping off the radiators that’s a...

    The right tools make all the difference. A big punch ground flat on a bench grinder, and a big 20lb aluminum head hammer took it out in 10 minutes. No more wobbly wheel... and that HRC tip is fucking loud [emoji23] Also I used the two finger tighten method on all the loose spokes and...

    Muffler came out real good (ignore the dusty fingerprints Now if I can just get this cocksucking wheel bearing out... tried for an hour with the tools I have, couldn’t catch the lip good enough to knock it out. I’m gonna take it up to the shop and see if I can find a better punch, or use a...

    Might be slightly less glossy if it was baked in an oven, but I don’t have an oven that fucking big [emoji23] even if it toned down some it’s still way too glossy though. They make another semi gloss and a matte, I’ll probably just buy the matte because I’m sure it’ll be slightly more semi...

    Well Chungus is half apart waiting on wheel bearings and spacers, and scary needs the muffler repacked and rejetting before anything else. I’ll work on them soon, I’ve almost got my upstairs bedroom cleared out for my gf. Just have to carpet the stairs, and shape the handrails out of the 2x2’s...

    Weird as fuck... All the other bikes in the world had the tanks on the frame, even back then Honda was building the frame around it like the modern MX bikes.

    If we’re honest Yamaha started out yellow, then went to white in the 80s-90s... making blue Honda’s color originally [emoji23] My z50 is blue.
