Safe to say I powerwash the dogshit out of my bikes too. I LOL'd at this pretty hard. As long as it isn't on pencil-point-blow-holes-in-things setting all is fine.

Power wash, then spray mr. clean. Have a beer while you wait a lil then power wash again. Use an air gun to blast it dry. Cleaned bikes like that for 2 decades with no issues whatsoever. I tear bikes down at least 1x yearly to clean/grease everything. ... more »

And that’s exactly why it’s important to cancel events, voluntarily isolate yourself, etc. gotta slow the outbreak so the healthcare system doesn’t get overwhelmed with patients who are compromised before the virus hits them.

Posted this in another thread. Read the link. Great info on why its good to be cautious. No need for hysteria, but caution is very warranted.

Added reply in a thread Custom and One-Off Parts 6/20/2019 10:52 AM

I used to be very much in the camp of "overall it is cheaper to do it all in-house" (which is why I used to design/machine all my own parts and fixtures for prototypes). It got to the point, however, where the opportunity cost was high as it was pulling ... more »

'Cause they ain't cheaper. Why the heck is there a rumor that they are cheaper? LOL.

Awesome part and GREAT post! As an engineer who has worked in R&D for many years and runs a CNC mill, it is almost always cheaper on a time/material basis for me to send things out, even one-offs. Did you ever get this part quoted by a prototype ... more »

I haven't ridden in 6 years. I don't own a bike anymore. I haven't looked at the majority of these magazines since they were published. If they were already gone my life would be just the same as it is now.

If the Boston guy falls through (he was first), and the guy from the Southwick area falls through, then they are all yours. Please message me your phone number.

Well lucky day for you. I'll be in Boston next week (Thurs and Fri). Waltham and Burlington. Where are you? I'd be happy to bring them to the area and meet you somewhere.

BUMP so it doesn't get buried. I want these to go to a good home rather than the recycling bin.

This! Even if it was the top end bearing, when the head and piston smash something together that hard it will compromise the connecting rod. If you reassemble the bike the rod will break EVERY. SINGLE. TIME (unless you ride like a total pu**y). Time ... more »

08 is an awesome bike. Nothing handles better than an RM125. Nothing. They are unbelievable bikes for cornering. 04-08 are very similar other than minor details. 08 should have Showa suspension which is better than the KYB stuff on the 04 that I used ... more »
