  1. Keep it over 6k then, I'm just here to solve problems.
  2. I've also found a used k&n air filter. It's included in the price.
  3. I found this while rummaging through my basement. I really don't want to bother mailing it but I can send from the states NeXXt week. Even better if you're attending NeXXt. Cost is postage. If you can pick it up then it's gonna cost two adult beverages.
  4. I’ve noticed with inverted units, they’re usually quieter outside than inside. All you hear is the fan(s). Not like some of the oldies I get to work on.
  5. Damn that's a good price on a awesome product. Too bad I'd have to go through hell to get it through customs (freon) plus it's about double the capacity I need.

    School me on gutters...

    There is no Miracle gutter, no matter what you end up buying you still need to clean them out from time to time. My dad has spent hundreds on various gutter "shields" the only thing they did was make my job harder when I'd go over to clean them out.

    Water Heater Question

    I see you finally got it installed:

    Water Heater Question

    Add "Master Plumber" to your ever growing list of expertize. I was going to try and re-explain why this is a bad idea, but I'll let you learn it the hard way.

    Water Heater Question

    Just don't do it. You're planning a redundant hot water source that will only cause you grief. What's the worst that will happen if your new water heater goes tits up? A few cold showers. What's the worst that WILL happen when your old tank leaks or blows up? A flood, possibly no water at all, and sooner or later that old tank is going to have to come out. Pay a little now, or a lot later. Up here home owners /business insurance won't cover any water damage caused by an electric tank over 10 years old.

    Goldbird on Craigslist AZ

    I think there was an Australian guy who had something like 12” risers on his bird, something about neck issues. Apparently it never slowed him down, but that thing needs to be set on fire and its ashes scattered to the four winds.

    WTB: Trashed CBR1100XX

    Just how trashed? I'm sure we could find a way to get this poor thing to you. With the current exchange you could probably pick it up for $1000 USD https://www.kijiji.ca/v-motorcycle-parts-accessories/calgary/clean-alberta-title-canadian-bike-2001-honda-cbr-1100-xx/1328064619?enableSearchNavigationFlag=true

    Pimp My Basement!

    I'll echo what was said above. Spray in insulation (pay to have it done). Drop ceiling (a pain I the ass to install) or paint, it does a decent job. If you really want to soundproof get some roxul and stuff it in-between the joists.

    1985 Kawi GPZ550 crossthreaded oil filter

    That looks like my ex's nighthawk 650 (1982?), from what my dealership told me was never sold stateside, which made it nearly impossible to get parts for the thing.
