    Didn’t actually, oreilly’s had it in stock, but I didn’t have $16 to get it, plus the big tub of mothers mag polish was on sale for $7. I’m sure the mother’s won’t give me the shine I want on a few pieces so I’ll get some eventually.

    The fuck is in oven cleaner [emoji23] Could be cheaper anodizing too, I know this shit’s faded, but the GPR stabilizer+triple clamp kit is $700+ new

    So I heard, but I saw a couple posts complaining of pitting, hadn’t seen any of that for greased lightning. So far it’s gotten most of it off in about an hour, but the top is being stubborn so I’ll go to oven cleaner if the GL can’t get it. I think I’m gonna rebuild the GPR unit, strip the...

    Needless to say I can’t leave it alone [emoji23] I ripped the controls apart and took off the top triple, got it soaking in greased lightning to remove the faded anodizing. Decided to spot test polishing the radiators, between the rain, other chores, and the hardware stores not having fucking...

    Guess we’ll see, I haven’t even told him I started on it, I’m gonna tell him I need the vent/drain hoses for the carb, and the stuff to fix the muffler.

    Nope, he’s buying the parts, or he’s gonna say flat out, plain and clear that he doesn’t want it. I’ve got the parts laying around to fix the basics though, I would like it to run healthy so I can fuck around with it... because it’s in my name so it’s still my bike

    Tore into Scary’s carb out of boredom. Already has a 175 main which should be good if Chungus is any indication. Had a standard 68 pilot instead of a 68s, and I’ve seen two major potential vacuum leaks, that shitty eBay hot start thing... the hose was zip tied onto a brake bleeder fitting...

    Well when the only three vehicles you’ve ever had were given to you, and two were bought practically brand new I’d have to be a real piece of shit to try and charge him for a 19 year old sumo that I bought with money I was given to fix another car that’s gonna be given to him. Lemme just start...

    I keep telling him if Scary is too much work for him then just get another one... his argument? “Where is that money gonna come from” Same fucking place it’s gonna come from anyway because I’m not giving him that damn bike, from the very beginning I told him if he wanted it he had to pay me the...

    I don’t need a vacation, I’d just like to stay home and play games for a week [emoji23] She offered to pay some into it, but I told her to just get the food and stuff. Since I’m probably not gonna get to keep Scary without pissing my diva ass brother off and causing a scene, I figured at least...

    Not gonna be any real progress for me for awhile, gf wanted another vacation so I spent a shit load on a nice cabin because I hate hotels, then when I save up again I gotta fix my vehicles. Tired of the truck smelling like antifreeze, and I miss driving a manual. Only thing I might do is get...

    Quoting to get your attention because I’m bored and I assume you are too Can’t remember if you asked about that one area I’ve been riding in or not, but with the help of a shitty trail tracker app I mapped it out. It’s only about a mile long in total, but I can’t bitch too much, it’s 2...

    He’s just jealous because I’ve been riding Chungus and he hasn’t ridden either of them yet even though I’ve offered multiple times. Like I said, he has to buy it from me, and he has to do the work it needs, and that’s why he’s still uncertain, he thinks because it looks rougher than Chungus...

    Just haven’t had the desire, or the money. Brother also really wants it so fixing my other stuff has been on my mind until he decides. He has to buy it for what I paid obviously.

    Since replacement XR fenders are $40+ I decided to trim up the CRF fender and bend up a reinforcement brace out of 1/8” aluminum flat bar. Gonna take it up to the shop and round off the ends on the bench grinder, and I might paint it or bed liner it black. No more risk of tearing up my new...
