  1. 68 miles? Clapped out. Maybe it's the pictures but it looks filthy too. Driven hard for 68 miles and put away wet. kidding, of course. good luck with sale
  2. Thanks for all the feedback folks. A little more related info... I've been running two bikes for the last few years, the XX and a DRZ. I have and mainly use a Harley branded Battery Tender Jr. that trickle charges @ ~0.75a with an auto feature. I don't log when I charge the batteries over the winters but I try to charge each one at a time for a week or two then swap to the other. Both are AGM, XX is YUASA, DRZ is generic no name. As mentioned my XX battery would charge to the point the tenders light would turn green, as expected. The DRZ battery was charging
  3. Asking for a friend 😎 Man, this is a tough one to fess up to. Let's say I have a friend who in a drunken mishap over the winter accidentally put the Battery Tender Jr charger leads on the wrong battery poles (battery in bike, 2000 XX) and plugged the fucking charger into the wall. The bass-ackwards charger/battery made a funky humming noise immediately which the drunken idiot noticed after a short time, like less than a minute. They then unplugged the charger from the wall. Damage done? What to check now? Battery was then removed from bike and put on tr
  4. I don’t want anymore discs in our house either. But I’m always interested in what people are selling if nothing more than imaginary tire kicking. what’s your eBay handle?
  5. Thanks guys. As it's indicated as a "MF" battery I'd say it's agm. I did read the instructions that came with the battery and they said to charge at no more than a tenth of the battery capacity (capacity is 6.5Ah) so the tender jr seemed suitable. I thought the instructions said it would take several hours when in fact for me as indicated by the lights, the tender jr had appeared to have fully charged the brand new battery and switched to maintenance/trickle charge all in less than 2 hours. Seemed odd. Seemed too fast. You guys do have me feeling warmer and fuzzier abou
  6. Hi, Just bought a new battery for my DRZ-400S as the old one was done. I was going by the shop and just grabbed one that was not charged up. They added the acid for me and away I went. It's a 12v 6.5Ah MF battery. Brand is "DS". I stuck it on the battery tender jr I have (full disclosure the charger is Harley brand, was a gift) and let it go. I think the jr charger charges at .7. I set a timer reminder to myself to check on it at the two hour mark to make sure it was not too hot, no weird lights on charger, etc and to my surprise, at the two hour mark it was
  7. Well look at you two quick little wheeler dealers! I can live without it. I’ll just take my cut of the commission and I’ll be on my way.
  8. I keep coming back to look at this ad. I don't think I've ever worn a large on my melon, always XL. I notice the other helmet you are selling is an XL. Does this one fit you? Is Nolan L like an XL from anyone else?
  9. Size? I've been liking the smell of Old Spice "Bearglove" for the last two sticks.
  10. Thread title had me thinking this was about Dave filling his cars. Never heard of Houdini product before, will keep an eye out for it. I like that a locksmithing product is named after an escape artist. I once bought some graphite powder lube for a sticky gas cap lock and accidentally dropped way too much in, what a mess. Key would not go into lock fully until I extracted the plug of powder at the bottom.
  11. What action/changes were involved in the "dial down"? Was it hot or cold when these changes occurred?
