You go around it, like a rock in the road. Just don't put the whistles on backwards, that makes the deer chase you....

I've been using the Bullet for a couple of years now, quite happy with it. No big crashes, and while it's hotter than no protector, that's not an option for me. Once underway I don't even notice it's on.

Added reply in a thread Race gas VS pump gas 7/28/2020 10:25 PM

AV gas has lead, and by today's standards they have a ton of it, regardless of it's Low Lead name. The lead provides a slight cushioning effect for valve seats, but it's biggest advantage is it's resistance to knock. Safe in 2 or 4 strokes, yes. Really ... more »

I'm sorry for your loss. Dogs really are one of the best things in life, and losing one is one of the worst things in life.

All of the above. Sometimes I am able to spray it on, rinse it off and be done. Other times the nastiness is more stubborn and requires some scrubbing and additional spray/rinse cycles. It isn't great at removing grease type materials so in those cases ... more »

In high school we took a 2x4, painted it black and cut a V notch on one end, then cut it to just the right length. Jacked up a guys car and slipped it right next to the passenger side back tire. Almost invisible at a glance. He gets into the car, puts ... more »

Added reply in a thread Yz 125 jet problem (now seized piston) 7/23/2020 6:55 PM

Is that a Namura piston? I made the mistake of using that garbage and had a circlip go bad on me. Damage looked similar. You can seize it from too small of a pilot, but usually that's accompanied by a long ride down a steep hill with the throttle chopped ... more »

I just transitioned my recently purchased 17 125SX from C12 to 100LL. Works great, and I can't tell a performance difference. My wallet appreciates the change though.

No doubt. Clearing out the swamp takes a long time, hopefully the current good work continues for another 5 years and as citizens we can get back some control. As for the friend situation, ask yourself what the boss would want done, or what you would ... more »

Added reply in a thread Yz 125 jet problem (now seized piston) 7/23/2020 10:37 AM

The circlip could certainly do damage to one side of the cylinder/piston, then jump to the other side and jack things up there as well. After that, what's left could then drop down into the big end of the rod and seize it up. Basically errant metal can ... more »

IF it were reliable, imagine the fun 10 of those would be in a backyard turn track with a bunch of your buddies. You'd never get going fast enough to get seriously hurt, but the block passes and shit talking would be epic. It'd be $20,000 of fun for ... more »

The Super Duty Fords are all solid front axle, and the radius arms look strong enough to use as bridge abutments. If you are going the gas route, the new 7.3 Godzilla massively outdoes the Chevy 6.6 and the Dodge 6.4. Look up TFLTruck on YouTube, they've ... more »

What's wrong with the wheels on there? If they're straight, not cracked, and the spokes are tight, run them.

Aluminum brightener from NAPA does a good job of getting everything clean (amazing on radiators). Sometimes the aluminum will end up with a slightly darker color and a scotchbrite pad takes care of that. https://www.napaonline.com/en/p/MCR1458

To make clean up much easier, put water in the ultrasonic cleaner, then put the parts and cleaning solution in a plastic bag. Drop the bag in the water. When you're done the nastiness is in the bag, not all over the inside of the cleaning machine.

Slap a fresh piston in there (pretty much anything but Namura is okay), pick up a bolt kit from SpecBolt or Bolt Motorcycle Hardware, have the fluids in the forks & shock changed. Flush out the brake lines, plus fresh water in the rads and oil in ... more »
