  1. Build check dams with large #3 size stone also called surge material or gabion size stone. between every 50 to 100 foots depending on grade and volume of water they will see. If high volumes of water 100 GPM I would reinforce with Class I rip rap. Will catch sticks and other debris and require checking or cleaning every 6 months to a year on average. Slowing of water will also help prevent erosion which left unattended will find the weakest link in your culvert pipe and wash out the pipe and your driveway. I have built many, maintained miles upon miles of proper water drainage meeting all DEQ and DMME requirements. That is the proper way to handle water that is free flowing, slow it down and divert it correctly.
  2. Just had an issue with my sons sena, I updated his before racerxx, we get there and nothing. Wont turn on and shows fully charged. So we couldbt use them at all. Once back home, took it apart and checked battery directly and indicated that it is indeed good. Back together, tried again and nothing, did resets still nothing. Attached to my laptop and still, yep nothing worked. Finally get it to be recognized, after updating Sena app, then Sena recommends removal of their latest update. Hit the button and it fired up no problems at all. All fixed
  3. Wifes car is make rear diff noises. Did a recommend fluid change with additive and not helped. So off to the dealer for them to fix/replace a known issue it seems from various forums. 1st dealer denied ever hearing about it, don't know what is causing it. 2nd dealer, yes pretty common issue, no problem. Setting up a time to drop it off next week.
  4. Yep, chain was about due for replacement and rear sprocket was vortex aluminum. I had ordered a new chain to replace it but when I pulled the rear wheel off I did a double take at the excessive amount of wear to the sprocket. Just rolled wheel to side, cut off old chain and ordered new sprockets. Oh well, guess the chain was stretched more than I thought.. Got a few more items to go over on my track bike, new tires and stator on my sons track bike and oil changes to be ready for Racerxx 2020.
  5. Anything strange could have happened to cause its failure. Seen lots of brand new items break or fail soon after put into service or arrive defective. Just installed new chain and sprockets on my track bike today, amazing how strong they are from the demands we put on them. As shown with the wear on my vortex rear sprocket. Aluminum and done after two track days as expected. Got it for 1/2 price so no big loss. Replaced with a steel this time just to avoid replacing again so quickly. I am not worthy enough to notice the difference of rotational mass.
  6. 1st world problems of lifting bike off side stand and rolling it on its own wheels. Track bikes have no side stands and even still move easily and park in wheel chock.
  7. Depends on my area of riding, this is all on 87 ethanol fuel. Motorcycle trip with a buddy, 51mpg stock gearing, saddlebags, tail bag and my 240lb butt. Then also done 100 miles and had gauge blinking after a few strolls through the favorite mountain roads in 2nd gear.
  8. 180 to 190 on average before blinking and even then got a gallon or so left.
  9. His bike is a 2002 zx7R and indeed have cooper ngk plugs in it. Cooper ngk plugs went back in also. $3 each. Maybe he should read the manual
  10. Quick search on kawi website had check/gap or replace 7,500/15,000/24,000/30,000 and add 6,000 for all mileage above 30,000 damn..
  11. The tire issue is because you replaced a worn out tire with a brand new.. hopefully it does feel better. Buddy gave me shit 2 weeks ago for changing my xx plugs, He whined that it was a waste of money and a bunch of shit based on changing plugs in cars at longer intervals than bikes. This past Saturday at the gap his bike was stumbling, burning rich and asked me to help him fix it. 19,700 miles, origional plugs were the reason. 3 were way long over due and 1 so bad off it couldn't be firing. Corroded and rusty. I let him borrow my xx to go pick up new plugs. Then read his text messages back to him and friends that were nice enough to watch us and not leave us.
  12. Was downstairs tearing down my XX and putting my sons bike back together listening to spotify. I like it better than pandora, far better better selection of songs and similar artists they throw in are better also. Bye bye pandora
  13. I use pandora and listen to pod casts constantly, probably close to 40 hrs a week. My issue with Pandora for example, I listen to Marilyn Manson or Rob Zombie channels and get some pretty weak ass crap tossed in constantly. The ads don't bother me so much, but you like one different song and the channel goes from Manson to Hanson pretty damn quick. Prime is another option like Carlos mentioned along with Samsung music is another. I have yet to use spotify, would have to check with my son on the latest greatest. Podcasts and audio books tossed in breaks up the music. If someone ever looked at my podcasts and audiobook list though, I would be deemed a schizophrenia homicidal manic. Its nothing but cold cases, murder mysteries, dark stories and a couple hunting podcasts like Meat Eater by Steve Rinella. Some audio books I have listened to in the past are pretty messed up. Stephen King doesn't hold a match to some stories I have listened to,
  14. Triumph daytona has them. Only issue I have seen is the o-rings dry up and need replacing
  15. S21 or S22 Just spooned a fresh set on this past weekend and hitting the gap in 2 weeks for 4 days.
