  1. PC2 Maps needed

    I have a PCII, but my map is tuned to conserve fuel...and I got that from someone else. Post up if anything is other than stock. Maps tend to be specific to configuration and desired outcome. Also post your altitude.
  2. Stainless brake lines

    My kit used the existing hard lines. Perhaps the trick is they must know the length and type of each line to use the existing hard lines...otherwise, it's easier to make X lines long enough to replace the whole run.
  3. Stainless brake lines

    I'll just chime in on DOT 5. I remember hearing that it was superior to 3 and 4, but more "high maintenance" (didn't remember why at the time). Since most people don't bother to flush and fill brake systems every year, it's not ideal for anything short of use by either enthusiasts and/or high-performance vehicles where owners don't mind spending the $$$ for the extra maintenance.
  4. I'm also nearing the end of a month-long colloidal mineral/vitamin therapy and will follow it with a colon cleansing and pro-biotic regimen. My gut's been wacky for the last couple of months. My current meds: DAILY: Anastrozole 0.5 Mg 2 / Weekly Aspirin 81 Mg 1 / Am Clomid 25 Mg 1 / Am Docusate Sodium 100 Mg 3 / Daily PRN Essential Fatty Acids 1450 Mg 2 / Am Flax Oil with Lignan 1439 Mg 2 / Am Gamma Aminobutyric Acid (GABA) 500 Mg 2 /Bid Glucosamine Chondroitin Complex 1300 Mg 2/ Am Lithium Orotate 53.33 Mg 2 / Bid Magnesium 400 Mg 1 / Am Multivitamin / Mineral Supplement 1 / Am Potassium Gluconate 595 Mg 1 / Am Prolamine Iodine 3 Mg 1 / Am Raw Honey 1 Tsp 1 / Daily Tumeric Curcumin 1000 Mg 2 / Bid Vitamin B12 Sublingual 2500 Mcg 1 / Am Vitamin D3 5000 Iu 2 / Am AS NEEDED: Cetirizine HCl 5 Mg PRN Diphenhydramine HCL 25 Mg PRN Excedrin 1130 Mg PRN Mucinex 1200 Mg PRN Naproxen Sodium 220 Mg PRN Pseudoephedrine HCL 60 Mg PRN Saline Mist Nasal Spray PRN Saline Sinus / Nasal Irrigation PRN Zyrtec D PRN
  5. Coming up of 49. Hormones are good (been in therapy for the last two years for low T). Doc added an iodine supplement. My thyroid is on the low side, and he hopes this will fix it rather than go to more extreme therapies. Diagnosis is whack right now. Between workplace stress and two family deaths since the first of the year, there's no way to tell why I'm run down until I have a chance to get more "normal" in my daily routine. Maybe there's something physically wrong, or maybe I'm just stressed out, "grieving" or depressed. I'm also looking at a job change before the year is out (good news, though), so that's helped a little with the stress. My shoulders (deltoids) are constantly sore , even with easing up on training. I can feel cords in the muscle that feel like knots. I also have constant pain in the right elbow. I know it's tendonitis, but it just doesn't seem to go away. Walking into doorways hasn't helped either.
  6. Stainless brake lines

    If you go with new lines, and if you may want (or already have) handlebar risers, be sure they make those lines a few inches longer. Stock length can be problematic.
  7. That's very obtainable... ...just not with another person. I'm already doing all that. Just been run down for the past couple of months.
  8. I used to pop a couple of migraine pills for a boost of energy in the morning. Maybe not a smart idea (250 mg Aspirin; 250 mg acetaminophen; 65 mg caffeine per capsule)...so double that if I take two. What would others recommend for a pre-workout boost?
  9. You are talking about the Jeep, right?
  10. left front brake rotates

    A photo would help, but the left side has the actuating piston for the linked brake system. The caliper should have the ability to move, but no clunking. If a bolt is missing....
  11. Motorcycle Maintenance Log Program

    Way too much work. I track MPG in Excel, and at the bottom I note what was done during "winter maintenance." Only tire and chain replacements are noted with actual mileage...mostly so I can guesstimate how much longer until I can anticipate replacement (handy when planning a trip).
  12. Water Runoff Diversion

    There's an ongoing issue at my house. Water runs off the mountain and drains under the drive (currently in two places) via culverts. Needless to say, when it's severe, dead limbs, leaves, small(ish) rocks, etc. come down with it; forcing the water to find another patch of drainage. I spent Saturday digging out the culvert going under the paved section of the driveway. Fortunately, a few moderate sized branches were the culprit, so nothing was in the pipe...just the entry was blocked, but I had to dig over a ten square foot area to find where the culvert was. I know there's always going to be dirt and leaves washing down, and the culverts will need regular inspection for blockages, but on this one particular culvert (and possibly another similar to it), I'd like to find an inexpensive "diverter" I can either buy or build uphill to catch/deflect the big items so they don't run full force into the mouth of the culvert. I'd have to do this by hand, so nothing that requires heavy equipment to install or too heavy to carry up uneven terrain. I've tried Google, but my hits are more for items designed for professional landscaping jobs. The stuff for homeowners is more about landscaping options geared to slowing runoff so it's absorbed into the soil.
  13. Garage cleanout

    Nope. I had a spare radiator at one time...I think I sent it to someone in need.
  14. Garage cleanout

    R/R showed up today. Thanks. Hopefully I'll never need it.
  15. Garage cleanout

    If the R/R will work with a '99, I'm interested. Likely won't check back until Monday...in case I don't reply sooner.
