  1. Too much sugar your teeth rot.too much fat you get fat.too much sorrow you get depressed.too much anger you get.....well...angrier. It will hurt others.But mostly it will hurt you.We should all as individuals look at how we get manipulated with truths...half truths...and flat out lies.There seems to be a abundance of organizations and people that would do just that to get you to believe their pot of stew. Im pointing no fingers. But sure someone will take that way anyway.Spring is here in the Rockies and looking forward to the riding season.Miss the 365 days of riding in Florida.We will probably have at least 2 more bad snowstorms though.Usually get the last one on or around Mothers day.The thick heavy stuff.Keep a good 360 about you.

  2. Your right Peter this is the place to vent your perspective. Keep in mind though that the others here have a perspective/ expierience that may be different for any various reasons. One person is not responsible for all the worlds problems.Or any one people group.Though some do stir it up more than others.Always three sides to any story.You know this.HiStory...Their story and the truth.Dont forget the big white sheet of paper with the tiny black dot in the center.Some are always drawing your attention to the black dot.And hoping youll not see the large sheet of white paper.A wise man (my father) would tell us."Your gonna screw up and make mistakes.....the trick is to keep them small".Rant on.Everyman has or wanted to at some time or another.But dont get personal it will only isolate you or perhaps make others view you as a pariah or something. We can take it.To any whoever thought I ve got personal with you.I apologize.Honestly never intended that.To Bilge Keel.....Im sure I got derogutory with.Really though I have zero animosity and do value your banter. A wise man will view this forums thread and look back on it and say. WOW!!!! Or something to that effect.Time should cause all of us to do a little introspection.I dont know what man acted first a Pilgrim or a Indian in a wrongful way towards the other.A Colonist or a Maori tribesman. But Im sure Selfisness was the motivation.

  3. Has anyone ever tried to mod a carb body to accept a brass seat for the float needle? It seems to me this is the reason these carbs have float level issues. Just saying. Ive thought about polishing the needles seat in the casting but not sure how concentric I could get it.

  4. Easiest way off hand is to usr a open end wrench ovet the threads to determine the girth of the threads. Metric bike so metric wrench as measuring tool. Dont think much of the rubbet integral washers. A aluminum or copper would be safer bet. Fiber washers are a close second.

  5. Dont know anything about 45 degree grooves but was quite the common practice of arcing (grinding) shoes to match the circumference of the drums diameter when I first started in the business in the 80s. Very messy and dusty. Wouldnt advise it if you dont want to be a statistic.😃

  6. Hey Odin. The idle circuit bypasses the throttle plate or slide with a alternate venturi to syphon just enough fuel to run at idle that it mixes with atomospheric air. Perhaps that is a adjustment to restrict or increase the available air to the idle circuit for altitude? What kind of carbs are they?

  7. Ok Dave. We obviously disagree. Its a sad day when grown men and women will not exercise integrity tenacity and a hard work to overcome their adversities.Instead of running for the goverment tit to put in their mouth. Your not going to convince me and I obviously havent you.Time will tell.Ive admitted I am wrong before.......we'll see if I have to again. Nobody can blame Bush anymore.And Nixon is dead.HaHa



  8. Dont play semantics and get off point. Theres higher property ,sales,titleing fees,state income,indepentant employment taxes,construction licenseing,hell any kind of licenseing.We had taxes in Florida for my business( tangibles) they called it. That they would tax me on everything in my shop every year regardless if I had owned for the last twenty years.even if I owned it before I started my business.And lets not forget about both sides trying their darndest to get their greedy hands on inheritances.I got taxed for the sidewalk that I installed up to my door! So there is a lot more than just income taxes, that argument is just a typical smokescreen to hide the plethura of graft and corruption in our goverment. As well as the political correctness that you tried to float that I am angry.I most definitely am. And am not going on the defensive for it or apolegetic.And most of all lets not forget the crowning tax of them all. O slumma care. And It Is A Tax. But most of all just do the math. Income to tax ratio.Income stagnant for what? Fifteen years or so? Both sides admit that.


  9. If this gets me kicked off the forum then so be it. I think you probably have never had a blue collar job Dave. Your most likely are in the top tier of income status. May even be living off off your wife or mummy and daddys money. If you think taxes are lower than they ever have been.......STOP smoking the dope and quit drinking the coolaid.Who and Ill ask again WHO!!!!! BELIEVES that crap? If the average anybody has 5 extra dollars in his pocket there is a Beauracrat whatever devising a way to take 4.75$ of it away for his or hers or their special interest. Quit watching the CNN Communist News Network and get your head out of the sand. And if not then quit pretending to know the working mans plite.And having lived on tugs and vessels a good part of my life .....that crap is Bilge water!!!!!

  10. I second that from iural. Just got two tires from him and was quite pleased. Not making excuses for him but keep in mind that in/with any business there lies the errant employee fffing things up for the employer at times. The fellow i sold my business to in another state had a employee selling cars on the side from the shop. This employee was turning back speedos and brought it all down on my friends head from the law. Known my friend I sold the business to a long time. Not something he would do.
