how do I adjust all the cables and shit on my bike if /when I change the handlebars
>>16871220second for >TFW no friends
>>16871228Dunno. Maybe tonight.>>16871231Come to SAM and make friends, anon
>>16871231You can always try zuckerbook
Is dicksword ded?
>>16871254Hey KK how much did you pay for the FZ?How do you like it
>>168713303k out the doorA lot
>>16871214What's the most fitting use for a Nuda?
>>16871351beating it with a hammer.
>>16871360Track, touge, commuter or?
Why don't we get any 125s in the US that aren't tiny little monkeybikes?
>Never ridden a pushbike>Want to ride motorbikesCan I just skip the whole riding a pushbike and go straight to motorbikes CBT learning phase?
>>16871390Yeah you can, if your balance isn't shot. How did you go your entire life without riding a pushbike, just curious?
>>16871386Amerilards are too fat
>>16871390you can but it sure won't help>>16871386because nobody wants them except (You)
>Turn 19 this sunday>Still one year left before I am legally allowed to ride a crf250l after countless hours of riding lessons and exams. The crf250l is not that fast anyway. Literally sitting in my shed doing nothing.Fuck euro licenses.
>>16871386Because there is no market for them? Are you ret?
>>16871386because if youre going to have a full physically sized bike it may as well have the power to get on the freeways since no laws restrict you to a 125people want tiny shitbikes like the grom for hipster points and to have it fit anywhere. other than that its useless
>>16871419Then why the heck are they selling grooms over here?
>>16871386Because they're for children
>>16871417You can ride a 500 at 18 in europe, retard, where the fuck do you live?
>>16871425because there is a market for >tiny little monkeybikes(and even then, it's amazing how many almost-new groms there are on Craigslist)
>>16871431All americans are children.
>>16871445Maybe, but we also don't give up the privilege to our government to determine how much power we can or can't have
>>16871436Belgium16 year old is 50cc18 year old is max 125cc and 15Kw20 year old is up to 35Kw24 year old unlimited
>>16871404Living in a shitty part of town. Parent's shed was broken into when I was young, so I've never had a bike.My old man's always had motorbikes though, he's recently retired so I'd love to be able to go on a bike journey with him some time. His last 3 bikes have been a Yamaha Fazer 600, Triumph Sprint and a BMW something. He's got a new Yamaha now, not too sure what model though.
>>16871459>not letting a 16 year old buy a 'busa Get your Commie ass outta here.
>>16871452Given the results you should.>>16871459That's Belgium only, not EU.
>>16871477>given the resultsYou mean becoming the biggest economic superpower in the world and driving technological advancement for the last century?Yeah, real bad results. Enjoy seeing your daughters raped by Arabs, Eurocuck.
How much should I pay a post-08 Ninja 250 for?
>>16871425Groms don't cost more than a 300 you tard.
>>16871512That's true. I'm just buttmad that I can't have a small-displacement aprilia.
>>16871512yeah they do
>>16871512They are millennial taxed to shit. I don't think they will actually get sold for this price
>>16871540he used a dumb example because that's a nigger bike that was ruined with mods and they think they can get more for it, but ninja 300s and groms both go for around 3k out here.
>>16871386what about dirt bikes?
>>16871497>You mean becoming the biggest economic superpower in the world and driving technological advancement for the last century?>and yet they're ignorant, couldn't make any advancement without foreign scientists, can build or ride motorcycles and have already come to end of their supremacyFucking amazing achievements you've got there, bud. But keep calling anything with a sign of regulation commie while watching your latest favourite homosexual motovlogger who inevitably crashes his bike when squidding.No one will ever remember any real achievements by the US supremacy in the future.>Americans
>>16871386freeways are a requirement of life in the USA. Not having the ability to use the freeway means that it's a dumb toy and not a mode of transportation.
>>16871548Y u mad tho?
>>16871497And the best your country can produce is a compulsive liar with the oratory prowess of a 12 year old. How the mighty have fallen.
>>16871580I hate that america has become a joke. This must be what the Philippines feel like.
>>16871576Stating facts is being mad now?I'm not the child who responded with>we are the best of the best you can't compete every beginner should have the FREEDOM to ride a busaIf you play with fire you get burned.
>>16871333awesome kk nice tripsgood to heardid you actually pay 3k or did you finance
>>16871598>implyingMAGA and physically remove drug dealers.
>>16871580>>16871598The worst thing is not Trump, far from it, the worse thing is that the majority of the country thinks he's fit to represent it (not that Hillary was much better).We've already been through this with Berlusconi, yet they didn't learn a thing from our 30 year old mistakes. Lmao burgers.
just stripped the screw holding the float valve in the float bowl on my sv's carbfug
HEARD SOMEONE WAS TALKIN SHIT ITT
>>16871601I took out a personal loan for the last Grand but the title is in my name
Been saving for the last 3 months for a bike, $1500 saved so far.Just a few more months till I stop being a no bike :^)
>>16871675Good job anon, save those neetbux!If you save fast enough you can even make it to SAM and meme with usPlz vote ;-;
I wonder what the car people of /o/ think of /dbt/
>>16871622It's just the inbred interior US and boomers in Florida. >>Cascadia pls happen
>>16871694They think we are gayThey aren't wrong
>>16871694Butthurt because they spend all day bench racing and spend all their money making their shitboxes faster then get passed by some 20 year old on a $5000 R6.
Do y'all wear Kevlar jeans when you ride? I've been putting off buying them because poor. Will they save my legs though?
>>16871716Regular jeans might as well be shorts desu, they won't do shit. Kevlar jeans will save you from road rash.
>>16871716>>16871726Seconding, if nothing else get CE rated knee and shin pads for $30-$80, kneepads would have saved my knee had I not been stupid.
>>16871716>>16871726What are some good kevlar jeans that aren't sixtety million dollars a pair?
>>16871759the thing with cheap kevlar jeans is they're ugly as fuck. If you want kevlar jeans that look like normal jeans they get pretty expensive.
>>16871759bilt ironworkers or draggin jeans
whats the most affordable pants I can get with knee sliders that are any good?
>>16871548tl;dr your jelly is showing
Anyone going to AMA Supermoto at Bakersfield? I'll be there.http://www.amanationalsupermoto.com/kern-county-raceway-park
>>16871763Any brand recommendations? Would rather spend more for something I'll wear everyday I guess. Only stores around me are fking cycle gear and everything is built which I've been told isn't the best? Need to try stuff on cause /fit meme legs.
>>16871777nocalifailia is gayid rather drink a gallon of my own urine daily than visit it
>>16871780revzilla has a decent sizing chart, watch their product overview videos too
>>16871628also: how to tell if jets are stock?
>>16871780Alpinestars Copper look very normal. They're for manlets though, when I sit down, they hike up, the knee pads move and is not that protective. Also the hip pads are useless.Normal looking = not protective>>16871784Cool opinion!
>>16871789read them and then look up what OE size is
>>16871774Thrift store jeans with hockey pucks taped on
>>16871694youre all some cool dudesi like watching the webms keep it up
>>16871812please dont text and drive thanks
>>16871784>id rather drink a gallon of my own urine daily than visit itno one cares what you flyover state fucks are into.Don't be jelly of our superior economic, ecological, and motorcycling environment.
>>16871768I bought a pair of draggin jeans and returned them immediately after they arrived. Terrible build quality.
>>16871825i got 2 pairs and they seem really nice, haven't had any complaintsmuch nicer than my bilt pants
>>16871784Glad to hear you're staying in the flyover states.
>>16871823don't you guys have to have little cans of charcoal installed on your bikesMA herewe are #1
Are there any BiLT products that are decent? Helmets? Jackets? Boots?
>>16871847>don't you guys have to have little cans of charcoal installed on your bikesyou mean that little soda can sized piece of plastic that everybody throws away as soon as they buy the bike?
anyone else have a motodoge to assist in bike projects?
>>16871716Wore these all season. One of the few brands that has kevlar throughout not just in "impact zones."
>>16871716pants are actually way more important than jackets for the most part.If you set up a scenario where satan is there and says I'm gonna lowside and I get to pick leather pants or a leather jacket I'm gonna pick the pants (as long as I have gloves) >>16871774I'm interested in this too, I want some to attach to my textile jacket for motogymkhana and lower speed riding. https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/agv-sport-willow-perforated-leather-pantsthese seem like the affordable option.
>>16871878that's awesome, I wish I had a cool dog
>>16871881I've been thinking about these. Definitely looks better than riding jeans with fake fading and shit.
>>16871846pleased to inform you libtard crybabies such as yourself dont control the countrystay mad lol
>>16871908>https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/agv-sport-willow-perforated-leather-pantsthose look pretty good actually, I should start saving my penniesthere's also these, but I'm not sure how well the workhttps://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/icon-cloverleaf-knee-sliders
I ride a KLR and pretty much meet the stereotype.My choke cable seized, where it would not turn off with the knob. So naturally I cut it off about 4 inches from the carb. Cable was corroded pretty bad and pinched in one spot. This shit has caused me serious problems on the road sometimes because it would stick open and run inoperably rich and kill the engine even at highway speeds.So I got an elbow, like a metal tube thats connected but loose at the base, and a jagged cable end.I want to loop the end and crimp it so I have a little pull hoop, and fit a rubber gasket in the elbow and jb weld the elbow to the carb body. So I'd have to pull the cable and hold it to use the choke.Any reason why not to do this?
>>16871935water intrusion and further corrosion mostly
>>16871933I can't imagine those being comfortable and having part of leathers or having leathers for the safety is so worth the extra $80 it's not funny.That's technically half of a two piece suit so if you decide to do track days in the future or whatever you can get full leather coverage and get on track pretty quick. Also, it depends if you care about those sorts of things as well but most other motorcyclists with a bit of experience are gonna laugh when they see those things strapped onto your legs.
>>16871908>pants are actually way more important than jackets for the most part.not at all true
>>16871947turbo busa swap when
>>16871823Only redeemable thing about Cali is lane splitting. Otherwise its a degenerate wasteland, propped up by the overvaluation of faggy 'tech' companies and illegal immigrant labor.
>>16871978and the marijuana industry
>>16871915This is another reason I got them. Just plain blue jeans. No panels, weird stitching, "radical" designs. Very comfy too, if a little bit baggy for modern style. Draggin Jeans sells a liner I'm interested in buying so I can wear different jeans all the time, aka more slim fitting.
>>16871978you watch too much bill o'reilly
>>16871908The only study I've seen suggests you are a little more likely to sustain an impact to the jacket than pants. More importantly your upper body has more important organs. Like your helmet is probably the piece of equipment that is the least likely to be used in any given crash (mind you more likely than not still) but it's still the most important because it's directly protecting one of the two most important parts of your body.
>>16871989and you see too much liberal media daily
>>16871823>economicLol, you mean crippled economy housing the corporate buildings of tech industry isnt an economy.>ecologySeems like that is a double edged sword, nice weather year round, morons from all over the world to enjoy it, shitload of people.>motorcycling enviromentThe only positive atribute of Commiefornia.
>>16871992Can't we all just agree that ATGATT is best?
>>16871694Same thing you think of cyclists.
>>16871935Just replace the cable with a stainless version, or properly maintain your cables.
>>16871977i think yamaha already has a 1000 turbo sled plus this one is too much fun to do that to
>>16871628AYY CUNTS I GOT THE MOTHERFUCKER
>>16871960I know leathers are way better and worth the extra money, but I wouldn't be wearing them on a daily basis like commuting to work, where these would be good to pop on over my work pants, and at least have something, but they're not going to be a replacement for real leathers.
>>16871947Yeah exactly what I was worried about, what's a good way to seal it off? rain-x? Extra nice gasket?
>>16872002Obviously, but you have to consider that if you're riding somewhere you can't wear motorcycle pants all day they are a fucking pain in the ass to put on and take off away from home.
>>16871998What kind of stupid response is that?Damn, burgers are still in the middleage.
>>16872039too much liberal media and lurking echo chambers on the internet
>>16871935>I ride a KLR and pretty much meet the stereotype.what did he mean by this>>16871989daily reminder that this map leaves out auto club speedway and chuckwalla>>16871978some damn nice roads and backcountry, too. and I like the weather. it'd be a great place, if it wasn't for all the fucking californians.
>>16872030Why do you need knee sliders for commuting
>>16872038I've heard that overpants are a good compromise for that. One of my bosses used to wear them over his khakis.
>>16871982Colorado has that betterer.I'm from Colorado and hate Califags coming here and fagging the place up, is all. New Yorkers and Texans can fuck off too.If you are going to flee some failed socialist/ dystopian nightmare shithole please do not bring those same failed ideas into the politics of the place you seek refuge in. Califags please stay home.
>>16871992I suppose I'm thinking about sliding and not impacting things, in which case a back protector and the specific armor becomes your most important safety feature anyway, Leather won't stop crush injuries. For the most part when you slide down the tarmac almost all your weight is gonna be on your bum or thighs while barely any is on your torso, that's why I brought up the example of lowsiding and not hitting a car or highsiding, and why I'd rather wear a textile jacket and leather pants than the opposite. >>16872002well that's always the best option. >>16872030if you're just after slide protection, something for the knees is not the best option, you generally slide on the bum or thigh, if you know you won't wear leathers, get textile overpants you can take off and just already have your work pants, or get good kevlar jeans if you don't want to have to change at all.
>>16871525Aprilia already makes LITERALLY the best street 125.
>>16872046yeah im sure it's MUH (((((LIBRUL MEDIA)))) keeping me from seeing my state literally burn, even though you can see it from bumfuckistan because you read breitbart
>>16872031choke plunger conversion or just get a new cable. dont skimp on shit that makes or breaks the bikes operation>>16872064califags please leave Washington too
>>16872064agreed ny is extremely full of fail I used to live there
>>16872069I know. I CAN'T BUY IT IN THE USA!
>>16872071never read breitbart in my lifeits cute when you retards think you know the people who dislike liberals, you dont
>>16872074Why not? There's one for sale where I'm at in Canada.Expensive as fug tho
>>16872074UntrueI've owned two
>>16872046You have two parties which are the same and think you are a democratic country, you behave as if someone who votes for the other party was an enemy when you're basically voting the same shit.You think being an open person means you're weak, a "liberal" or a "commie". You flip your shit on bullshit, void "rights" and don't demand basic things from your country, which at that point doesn't have any reason to exist in the first place.You're grotesque to us. So close yet so distant.I wonder if it's just most bikers being uneducated ignorants or not.
>>16871992the upper body hosts more vital organs, but it's important to keep in mind that the lower body is more likely to suffer crush injuries during a motorcycle accident as you tend to slide on your ass across the pavement, and hitting any substantial object at speed can easily result in a broken pelvis or a broken femur if your foot hits the ground wrong. lower body injuries can be fatal due to the high blood flow to the bones, each femur flows ~700cc of blood per hour and the pelvis flows ~1500cc per hour, most adults only have ~5L of blood, so do the math
>>16872026>turbo 1000cc i3>this power curveTurbo R1 when?
>>16872052I mean I'm frugal and prone to diverse/multiethnic/inclusive engineering with whatever I have on hand that doesn't require replacement or any real money spent.>>16872014>>Just replace...No.
>>16872105>implying i want to go to a board full of retarded rednecks who get triggered by women voting
>>16872115I don't care what you want, there is a place for political discussion, this is not it. Fuck. Off.
>>16872105Why does 4chan even have a political board is beyond me.
>>16872087Where were you able to get one? was it one of the older 2 strokes or a 4 stroke?
>>16872094Modern 1000's can get that power without turbos.
>>16872094probably never but they did use the 3cylinder 1000 and turbo in the new yxz along with a sequential dogbox, maybe it could be shoehorned into a bike?
>>16871878My motodoge is a breathing visual example of what color the oil will be when it's ready to change it.
>>16872099you sound like the retards from /bseveral cities in your state declared bankruptcykeep drinking that kool aid
>>16872094wont happen unless SBC allows forced induction, turbos are also detrimental to throttle sensitivity, and make the relation of throttle position to power produced non linear
>>16872124zero fucks given what you do or dont want posted
>>16872126For containing the retards, that's what all containment boards are for.
>>16872115damn nigga does it hurt when you clutch your pearls that hard?
>>168721322009 two strokejust troll cl youll find onemay not be close to you but theyre around
>>16872140id be a little concerned about the white bits in the oil m8
>>16872156believe it or not, california produces a large amount of the oil in the United States; that is a huge part of their revenue.
>>16872173Kek. Oil gets old too, don't you know?
>>16872165apparently those boards didnt contain them allyoure here posting
>carport maintenance feels
>>16872197whats the bike in the foreground a honda vf500?
>>16872058Kind of. I have leather/textile hybrid overpants but they're bulky as fuck, weigh a ton, and the knee armour means they don't fold for shit so they're not super easy to store, and they're still not as easy to get on and off as I'd like. Fine if you have your own office, terrible if you're riding to a public place. Not sure how plain textile would compare.
>>168722101982 xs400 seca
>>16872210Wait yeah 1985 vf500f interceptor
>>16872239Misread foreground as background no bully
>>16872172Ah, I kinda want the new 4 stroke version; I don't think I can get a 2 stroke registered in Florida.
>>16872273pretty sure you canas long as it has a valid title from another state you should be fine
>>16872281That is a good idea. However, I kinda feel like being an ultra hipster and having one imported from Europe. Does anyone have any experiences with importing motorcycles into the US? I'm pretty sure that the current Euro 4 standards meet or exceed the EPA standards
>tfw tribute willie
>>16872273why the fuck do you want the 4 stroke version?the 2 stroke version is the best factory 125the 4 stroke is a piece of shit
First for I am nuda anon
>>16872409that bike is siq but that headlight is FUCK UGLY. like worse than KTM
>>16871985I'm curious how comfy that liner would be under my regular skinny jeans.
>>16872419if you're wearing skinny jeans are you really worried about comfrt?
>>16872413It grows on you my dude, it really does. I think it's sexy af.
>>16872424at least tell me you got rid of the mirrors
>>16872422skinny jeans are super comfy bruh. They typically have like 2% spandex woven in which helps them stretch to allow movement. Also they're not baggy which allows better leg movement, and they don't scrunch up behind the knees as much.
>>16872431i guess if you have no nuts then it might not be so bad
>>16872422Skinnys are the master race of jeans, but im more concerned about a liner causing circulation in my legs to get cut off cause my jeans are pretty thick denim as is.
>>16872430I have not, I don't like how bar end mirrors make the bars wider, lane splitting/filtering etc, and you have to have mirrors for the bike to be road legal.
>>16872438The legs being tight doesn't mean the crotch is higher, learn to /fa/
>>16872001>Lol, you mean crippled economy housing the corporate buildings of tech industry isnt an economy.You mean the largest economy in the US?California's economy is larger than the entirety of Austrialia's.
I'm gonna get an R3 and be a living meme and there is nothing you can do about it.I will also be posting here everyday once I get it which will be around early next year.

>>16872539Such a shame that bike is so slow
>>16872545For a 4 banger, it does.
>>16872539did my unrestricted licence test on one of those. SO much backlash when you lift off. Such a load clunk through the drivetrain.But not a bad bike otherwise
>>16872511I rode dirt up till I needed a road bike. Gave me some bad habits like putting a foot out at low speeds and whatnot
>>16872564That's what my fz6 is like. From no throttle to a little bit, it's really sensitive. Like the smallest movement has a decent amount of response
https://chicago.craigslist.org/chc/mcy/6052896754.htmlThere's gotta be something wrong with it right? If not, FUCK WHY DON'T I HAVE 2 GRAND TO SPARE.
>>16872500No it was entirely my faultAlso I had the bike since July of last year, so I'd say his chances for the first month aren't too bad>>16872511I wish I had ridden as a kid, I asked for a dirtbike every year from the time I was 9 until I was like 17 as the only thing I wanted for my birthday and ChristmasNever got one though until I had money to buy a motorcycle myself :c
>>16872566I only ever rode trails for the most part and was a pussy little kid afraid of ever losing traction or going over logs, so I basically developed street skills.
>>16872581>https://chicago.craigslist.org/chc/mcy/6052896754.htmlad looks kinda sparse and fishy, prolly stolen
>>16872582I did that same shit, I asked for an ATV every year, but my dad bought me two dirt bikes instead.Guess dad was right about one thing.
>>16872581>$2059nobody legit asks for this random ass number
>>16872581I don't trust craigslist ads with portrait photos.
>>16872583I was that overconfident kid that outgrew bikes quickly and crashed a lot. I very quickly learned my lesson on the street. Incidentally a wr250/450r is probably my next bike. Can't take the bush out of the kid.
>>16872597My parents never wanted me on a bike because my dad wrapped himself around a tree when he was 16 and broke his legsThey were just worried, but it happened anyways. Just wish I learned younger
>>168726062k for what he wants for it and maybe 59 for some last minute thing he did he wants $ for?
>>16872581which chicago autist is this
>>16872625The one with the hole in my leg.
>>16872619My dad has ridden since he was 12, my mom has been on the pillion with him since they were 19. They never wanted me to get a bike, but after I turned 18 and just bought one, they couldn't really argue against it.
>>16872610My dad started me on a YZ50 when I was 6 and I crashed it a lot so I was scared of it. Then he got me a KLX110 when I was 11 or so and I couldn't flat foot it, which caused me to crash a couple times, so I was fucking terrified of crashing at that point. When I got comfortable with the 110 he had me ride his KDX200 which I couldn't kick start, put on the stand or touch on either side, I had to ride up to a bucket to come to a stop.Doesn't help that he never told me about riding gear, only ever had a helmet.
>>16872644>he had a helmet
>>16872644I started on a peewee 80 then a xr100 I literally rode to death. No one ever taught me about gear either. I had a helmet, goggles and gloves and just wore hightops and jeans. I hit trees, barbed wire fences, rocks and other bikes but it wasn't till I saw someone with actual gear when I was like "hold on, that seems important" nowadays I'm poor so it's the squid life
>>16872539Shame it's slower than the cb600f Hornet.Shame the Hornet costs so bloody much because it's in a lower insurance bracket here in Ontario, and it's as fast as most modern 750s.
>>16872676I rode in Nike Shox, gym shorts, a T shirt and a helmet, that's it.I actually ripped one of my Nikes in half trying to kick start my brother's CR85 at the bottom of a mud pit once. I fucking hated his bike.
>>16872566Yeah the sticking a leg out for turns haunted me for months when I got ny first street bike.
Just went down today. Truck blew through a stop sign without even a hint of slowing down. I was 20 feet away when he came out and just barely swerved around but highsided when I let go of the brake (probably used too much rear brake I bet)Got a big fucking road rash on my right hip but otherwise okay, bike's instrument cluster and front fairing is fucked thoughHold me /dbt/
>>16872689No, go fix your bike.
>>16872689Did you get the trucks info? You could easily get him to pay for repairs
>>16872693I'm probably going to be sore as fuck for the next few days, it hasn't quite hit me yet, I flew off at like 35mph, slowed down from 55 (the actual road speed limit)>>16872699No, the fucker kept on going. I wonder if he had any idea I was there at all even after I ate shit missing his ass end by inches. Like 5 other cars behind me stopped to help me but all said the same thing, they saw him blow right outta nowhere with a left turn, didn't see his plateTime to get a helmet cam
>>16872711did you at least get the witness' info to make an insurance claim?
>>16872718Yep, full police report with like 4 people aroundThe witness called an ambulance on me though even though I didn't need it so I hope they won't bill me for thatInsurance will hopefully come through but my premiums probably won't be too happy
>>16872711Yeah i fucked my left knee up when I crashed a few weeks ago, it sucked for a couple days. Just load up on ibuprofen before you go to sleep tonight and take more when you wake up>>16872726Sucks anon, good that you're okay though.Also post your bike
>>16872732I don't have the heart to take a photo of it now but it's this guy
>>16872738C'mon we wanna see it
>>16872738goodnight sweet prince
>>16872767Just save the pic so you can jack off to it later.
>>16872798Thanks my man, you know I get off to shift levers in the leg.triumph status?>but ye how ya doin
>>16872738That's old. Good luck finding a new fairing.
>>16872711I'm pretty sure he legally wouldn't be held accountable anyway since you didn't actually make contact. You crashing yourself is considered your own fault.
>>16872819Not if he ran a stop sign and you have witnesses as proof
>>16872801Got the fairings out for paint, he says he can match it but I've got no ETA, you know how paint guys are, that's really all that I'm waiting on, got a really good idea for signals.Aside from that shits all good, school n shit, getting bikes ready for the summer. Some guy with a striple keeps parking at my school and it gives me the wanna ride feels.
Anybody ride on a track here, what is it like?
>>16872629You still got that hole?
>>16872838I did once>what is it likeIt's like riding the same mile of road over and over and over and over and over and over again.
>>16872840No, just a massive scar.
Hey /dbt/, long time lurker/poster here. I haven't ridden a bike since November and it along with other life circumstances has made me extremely depressed. I had a friend offer to let me ride one of his 3 bikes, but keeps backing out every time we have the day off. I can't afford another bike and probably wont for a while. Send help.
>>16872424I really miss my Husaberg FS550, but I think after I get bored of this WR450... I might look for an SXV550 because I've never owned a bike with more than 1 cylinder or EFI.
>>16872853Is this image you?If not fuck off nobikeIf so tits or gtfo
>>16872685Man I looked for a hornet when I was buying the fz6, but fuck they didn't import that many of them.
>>16872854maybe you should try an actual sport bike
>>16872854>got bored of a WR450 uhhhh
>>16872874Too hunched over for me, and don't want that kind of bike.
>>16872911Could be a long time, it's a great bike.
>>16872866I know that feel. It's why I ended up buying the Radian. Close enough, but older. It's a good bike, and in many ways it's similar to your FZ6. Except for it being water cooled and fuel injected. Shame I can't borrow your pipes for a 4 into 1 conversion. I have to find an 86-90 FZ6 to rob the pipes from it.But even then, the 4 into 2 still sounds nice. And if I can find old exhausts from Pops Yoshimura, I could have a really rad contemporary mod.I'm debating which one to do. FZ pipes, or stock pipes with the Yoshi cans.
>>16872932Mine is a 4-2-1 set up. I'm trying to figure out a good sounding way to make it louder without breaking the bank. This thing is a sewing machine when it comes to noise. The power is great though. I keep finding myself well North of 95mph without even trying.
hey /dbt/ I finally got my new bike (2nd one. first one was a red ninja 300) officially no longer nobike status. this is a young one too.
>>16873044>11k RPM redlineLel
>>16873051comes with the vtwin config tho
>>16871408Can confirm.T. Burger
>>16871459Jesus christ, this is bad.
>>16873085Got me there
Late fall and early spring is truly a great time to ride.>chilly air so no problem wearing heavy gear>state park is empty so plenty of twisty hilly roads to hoon, some hidden dirt trails too>plenty of other riding spots are quiet and more places to explore without anyone aroundRiding around at night is gr8 too, the roads are barren. Save for a few speed traps, it's fun cruising along surrounded by darkness. Confined in a little bubble helmet. I got a whiff of a hundred different smells like>fireplaces>low tide>weed>tobacco>old lady perfume>more weedpretty good
>>16873095Fuck you now i need to go out and ride again
>>16873051which points towards a bigger engine so your point being?The Ninja 250 has like a 14.000 redline, you saying thats an impressive bike?
>>16873127More revs + more displacement = more fun>>16873160Nice man, have fun.
>>16872689 here.Holy fuck it's just now hitting me how damn lucky I am. I googled for motorcycle accidents involving stop sign runners and most of them were fatal
>>16871978>faggy 'tech' companies>'tech'>' 'Did you just sarcasm-quote Silicon Valley?
>>16872854>SXV550I heard it was cute a yummy bike, not as nice as my sweet Nuda though.
>>16873180so you should love inline 4skinda weird for a cruiser fag
>>16873095Meh those time periods are like 70% rain and cold where i live.
>>16873223Kkk is slowly learning what a good bike is.
>>16873260Cute isn't it?
>>16873260are you implying big twins aren't also fun? (the sporty kind, not the cruiser kind)
hi dbt, guy selling this for 250ill just copy and paste what he says basically i need advice, and a rough estimate on how much it would cost if i had a motorcycle repair shop fix it up and make it street legal (i do not have the money for tools nor do i even have a garage)77 PE250 PROJECT. NOT RUNNINGbought as a project but have no time and running out of space.Exhaust and carb are off in bagsKickstart needs a bolt, it's off right now but I can put it on to prove it turns overIt's complete as far as I know other then lights and gaugesI'm not making any money I just want to get my money out of it.So first $250 takes it.
>>16873335>buy a $250 dirt bike from the 70's and take it to a shop to get fixedNigger that's fucking retarded. It's a two stroke from 77, it's the simplest shit ever, buy 4 tools, get a new reed valve, clean the carb and bolt the kicker back on in your fucking living room and it'll run just fine.Literally the perfect thing to learn on.Offer him $150, take $200
>>16873375interesting, can you help me out on how i could convince him giving it to me for less im kinda autistic socially
Show me some comfy bike youtube vids.Something like motogeo/gosutto/etc
>>16873390Make eye contact. Act like you know what you're doing.>I'll take it for $150.
>>16873390>go look at it>bring someone who is mechanically inclined if you can to verify that all the parts are there>spend like 2 minutes looking it over and making sure all the parts are there>ask him a couple basic questions about it, why isn't it running, how long has it been sitting, when it last ran, he might not know dick about it at all>ask "will you take $150 for it?">he'll say "nah that's too little, I'll do $200" or "nope, $250 firm" in which case he's a dick>say "lets meet in the middle at $175" or "$200 is the most I can do">he'll either accept or not>pay him what you agreed on, or don't>you have no reason to be overly polite or fair to the guy you will never see him again
>>16873401https://youtu.be/yl7MrW9Fe7YI want to cross the earth with Obi-wan
>>16873390It may not be wise to negotiate until you see the bike.When in person ask him something like, "what would you say to 150?"He will likey counter with less than asking price, you can attempt to negotiate from there or take his counter offer.
>>16873421I've watched that so many times and it's just as good each time>ywn go on a trip with ewan
>>16873421They're idiots and long way round was boring.Why anyone would ever think it's a good idea to ride across the barren wasteland of Russia is beyond me.
>>16873428KILL YOURSELFholy fuck filtered.
>>16873416Another thing, don't stand around and stare at it and think and yammer on and on. There's no reason for a craigslist deal for something like this to take more than 10 minutes.>>16873432>filteredI am so saddened.
>>16873410>>16873416>>16873423ok thanks but i still have the questions, now that i know its 2stroke and all is that even a thing to make it street legal? i probably dont seem like i know what im doing but my friend already taught me how to ride a bike but he never responds to my messages so i cant rely on him. yea im looking for a starter bike but my money is tight and is it worth it to start off with this bike or should i keep my money and look for a more long term starter bike?
>>16873438pretty sure I told you to kill yourself
>>16871881These are great had mine a year and they are in great nick. Really comfy, can be a little warmer than regular jeans but much easier wear than leathers.
>>16871908Will you think that when your kidneys are hanging out of your back?
>>16871459Do you homos have biker rights groups or do you just grovel before your Islamophile loser governments? In the US we fucking fight to change laws and it works.
>>16871525No, you aren't or you would have one but you are too lazy and stupid to go through the hoops to get one.Real bikers solve problems. You aren't solving, just whinging like the loathesome little cunt you are. Fly to Euroland yourself. Buy Aprilia. Take it apart or pay the nice man at the dealer. Ship parts to your CONUS address separately as used parts. Now you can buy that stupid feeble little loserbike.
>>16871580Yet he's not importing Muslims, unlike your goddess Auntie Merkel.
>>16871628Did you use a JIS screwdriver? One way to loosen some is to tap it a couple times using a hammer and punch. That can also slightly swage the head into usability sometimes. If you can pinch the head with a small visegrip that's another way.A hand impact driver forces the bit into the screw and can work very well with those, though you'll likely be limited to Phillips bits. #2 Phillips usually fits.
>>16871935Do this. I'd go brass.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EjjHTSKRoX0See KLR forums for more details. This is not a KLR forum.You could likely get away with nigging it your way though. Try it and if it doesn't work you didn't lose any money. http://www.steadengineering.com/
>>16872337You need to contact actual vehicle importers. Do you use the internet for more than /o/?

>>16871214what bike can actually compete with the nuda?
