Re: Mazdaspeed 3

I've got just a regular 3.
I can only imagine how much fun my car would be with 100+ more hp and stickier tires.
Can't see how you could go wrong with it.

Re: urgent: need an SV expert's opinion!

WDB: I've followed your reconstruction a little, and I applaud your skills Unfortunately, you've got me beat on space, time and knowledge for taking a mess like this and gettin it repaired. I think I'm gonna take daryl/spidey's advice and pass this one.

Spidey: I know, and agree. I'm just frustrated because I decided to start looking at the worst time and it seems that everyone severely overvalues their bikes at this time of year. I'd like to get on track for around 3, but it seems most of the bikes on Wera are running 5-7. There is a nice zxr w/ assload of spares and even a zuma pitbike for 5500 but it's all the way in NC. Did i mention patience is not my best virtue

Since you brought up the 250s, this is probably a loaded question but: do you think it might be in my best interest to get one for a track bike? I know the lower speed will help get me more comfortable with really wringing it out and working on my form and technique, but I worry that at my size (260) I might just plain be too big and/or have a hard time finding susp parts for me. This goes against what you just said above but Mags has been eyeing one to get her confidence up before riding the 800 on the street, maybe I could just grab her one of the new ones for that purpose and then turn it into a track bike when she's done...

Re: Ebay Transaction not going well

Hi Folks,

I have filed a dispute to reverse the credit card charges of $1000.00 back and closed the CC account from any future charges.

The guys mentality is just flush the sand out: we know-it more involved-probably have to split the cases and start from scratch to rid the engine entirely of sand-I totally agree with this statement by Kui.

"Tell him a restoration makes a bike rideable. He didnt do a restore job, becasue that includes fushing fluids. Sand is not something you just flush out, you have to open everything, clean everything, dry it, clean it again, until every grain is out."

Thanks to all who responded for your friendly advice.

I thought the same thing. I sometimes question that police videos show. I remember a few years ago they showed a chase from Texas in which they catch the guy, but I had remembered watching the chase on TV and they didn't stop the guy

I wouldn't be suprised if the kid actually got away in real life.

I like how he faked out the cop and the guy lost it. I mean I can laugh since no one got hurt

Re: fuck. this. week.

thanks everyone for keeping me entertained all weekend. I'm so happy to be home. And is lame as it is, I never really appreciated having 900 channels until now. An entire weekend sick without any crappy movies to watch is awful.

No. While it might be interesting to get one of the '08 bikes with the new frame and better suspension and wheels, the older ones aren't worth it. They're fun to ride and they make you grin like an idiot, but they're just too gutless, too suspension-less, too frame-less to be worthwhile. And for trackdays, they quickly get frustrating when dealing with shittier riders on GSXR 1000s and the like. And unless you get one with modified wheels, you're limited to shitty 16" rubber. Not ideal.

I'd stay away from a super-pimped bike. Get one with less stuff (you don't need any motor work for a trackbike), but fewer miles. I'd spend extra for one with good suspension, but high comps, headwork, thin gaskets, etc, just aint worth it for a trackbike.
