  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 180 to 190 on average before blinking and even then got a gallon or so left.
  7. 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
  8. 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..
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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,
  12. Triumph daytona has them. Only issue I have seen is the o-rings dry up and need replacing
  13. S21 or S22 Just spooned a fresh set on this past weekend and hitting the gap in 2 weeks for 4 days.
  14. i would have inserted a cat into the shed with kitty door to come and go as it pleases..
  15. Got some tri-flow left over from my sons kart racing. Seems to be good stuff, If you can ever find it. Royal purple makes a spray lube.. good stuff as well
  16. i just want to know how someone wears out the brake pads in 13k miles? that is a lot of braking either way EBC or Vesrah is what I like to use. Doubt you will find Vesrah for the XX, mostly used for track duty common bikes.
  17. Back of license plate. After destroying a couple stickers on the fork tube due to fork rebuilds I put them back there. The one and only time an officer stood there looking as I was getting my license from my tank bag I kindly said "back side of plate", he gave a quick glance and all was well again.
  18. Whats the best Amazon oil for my XX? 😉 that should speed things along.
  19. I screwed up last time and got it from Napa for $26 along with a $14 napa silver filter. The T6 was less than $20 last time I got some at Walmart so was curious why it went up. Just checked online at nearest store and Walmarts page says $19.97. Dont know, Either way got to change oil, went on amazon and saw they sell their own oil now..
  20. They also have $7 rebate if you buy before dec. 31
  21. Rotella T6 Synthetic Diesel Motor Oil 5W-40 CJ-4, 1 Gallon - Pack of 1 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01LH7L0KS/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_h2sgCbZSH2VCA Its $22.50 per gal and $56 for the 2.5 gal jugs near me. Saw it for that while getting oil and filter for my wifes car Saturday
  22. They seem to have a decent selection of oil available. Wonder who produces it for them though? Next oil service should be in the next month. Also noticed T6 oil is cheapest on Amazon vs. Buying at Walmart now as well. Need just over 3 gallons for 2 wheeled toys.
  23. You will want a contractor that specializes in home drainage or basement repairs. They will have the most experience with the materials needed. There should be a waterproof membrane on the outside of the basement wall. However, this membrane can be easily damaged when putting stone in as well. Dont know the age of your home, most companies that install our systems or drainage systems apply a filter fabric to help prevent fine silts from entering the actual media layer. Just had a customer within 2 weeks complain. Pulled test samples and material was all packed tight and this was for 8 to 10 inches deep. No filter fabric layer and their 80k bio pond was full. It was a year old and installed wrong. Lots of fly by night contractors are installing these wrong, just as many contractors are producing biofilter media wrong as well. Its a newer market that has engineers putting systems in new construction projects.
  24. They may be able to create a temporary bandaid fix but thats it. My job deals with stormwater runoff and bio retention ponds. Trust me, I deal with customers all the time who scream about water back ups. They quickly learn that their cheap ass contractor installed everything wrong or actually promoted sediment to be trapped in the voids of the media. Changing the flow of water around the help is the starting point and will allow water to slowly drain from french drain. The material needs to be replaced to be done correctly.
