Added reply in a thread Disability insurance for a dental student 2/23/2021 10:37 AM

I had a neck injury my first year of dental school and was unable to get disability from most companies. TDIC has a no questions asked general disability insurance that I signed up for, I think the max benefit is $8k a month but its better than nothing. ... more »

It's not the fact that it needs to be repacked more often, its the fact that it falls apart and is not easily fixable if you don't repack it in time. I went ahead and took it apart, but decided it wasn't worth fixing to me. After running the stock pipe ... more »

I could, and I probably will eventually when I get bored enough, but by the time I buy a repack kit, riveter and the time it would take me to repack and fix it every 20 hours vs putting the stock silencer back on is hard for me to justify for the minimal ... more »

Looks like I'm out of luck, they have a 1 year warranty, and recommended I repack the exhaust every 20 hours or the heat can loosen the rivets. I think that's crazy since I have had fmf systems in the past be fine after years of use and not repacking. ... more »

I'm going to call FMF and see what they say, but for now I threw on the stock muffler. Forgot how quiet it is, makes the bike deceivingly fast. I'm wondering if it is because the tire hits the pipe, mine does have tire marks and dings in the side from ... more »

Just noticed my FMF 4.1 muffler was loose and was thinking I cracked the sub frame. Turns out the rivets on the muffler mount are loose. Anyone ever had this happen? I haven't re-packed it but it only has around 25 hours on it.

This is great advice if you want to be in dentures, constant pain and unable to eat anything when you are older. The only thing insurance companies have figured out is how to make as much money as possible. Dental insurance is largely employer sponsored ... more »

You really need to try them all on and see for yourself. I have wide knees so I need xl-xxl in most braces, but have to use medium straps since my legs aren't fat. The only brace that I could actually fit the hinge at the same depth as my knee was the ... more »

I run the TM slider, rollers and chain guide and never noticed any extra noise.

Both of their houses are for sale, probably trying to cash out at the height of the market. But 6mil for a house in Temecula accessed by a dirt road will be a tough sell.

Not likely if you are a world class 20 year old athlete, unless you have some sort of underlying autoimmune disease.

Try the twin air filters, they are much slimmer than stock and easier to get in, you can also easily feel around the back to make sure it is seated properly.

Ive been using it for close to 10 years now. I use the red oil with twin air filters, and clean them in the washing machine with oxy clean. I wasn't a fan of the no toil filters, they felt pretty flimsy and now as well put together as the twin air's. ... more »

FXR clutch gear has been the only gear I have used lately that I don't wear a hole in the inner knee in one ride. I really like the fit of Oneil gear, but I put a hole in the pants after a 5 minute warm up on the vet track. I guess I can blame the pod ... more »

All of the bolts I have sheared off happened while riding, or tipping the bike over. The oil filter cover bolts both sheared off when my bike tipped over and hit my stand, barely fell over and didn't even hit the ground before I grabbed it. My skid plate ... more »
