Bought a new helmet. Really basic, black HJC. Also bought kevlar jeans. [img]http://oi27.tinypic.com/f3ymf9.jpg[/img]
Got my motorcycle endorsement. Time to buy a Ninja 250.
Heres my new beauty. (My Phone camera doesnt like the loud noise, it even made the phone to lag) [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m_NSy-golBk&feature=youtu.be[/media] A little valve adjusment and maybe a rejet and then it will go far away.

Would be better with a proper camera/mic though. Also my moped's back wheels completely lost traction on wet road when I was going up a hill on 1st gear. Gave me quite a fright.
waxed her up :3 [img]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/15344980/Bikes/Zet%C3%A4ks%C3%A4r.jpg[/img] Also, extremely short video of how it sounds [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bdc9wUMPmLk&feature=youtu.be[/media] God, i love this bike.
Just adjusted my valve, they were pretty tight, now the bike start and run just like a new.
[media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_naJP00Tlmo[/media] Gah, it's almost all back together. Replacing all the gaskets after the exhaust bolts got drilled out, all I have left is: -timing -floats -oil change -tires -cleaning up paint (rust spots on frame as seen above, painting exhaust) and then I should be good to go. Can't wait to go again.
Drove my bike through a swarm of bees on the highway today. I don't recommend it. :(
Dang, so expensive for a jet kit. But they are the best though. [url]http://www.jdjetting.com/xcart/product.php?productid=8[/url] At least they are made from 0ft to 12000ft elevation without anymore adjustment, and people claim that this fix most problem for that bike because the factory jet are too lean, this should also improve power significaly and improve response.
Fixed my TT250 :D After fixing the timing a week ago or whatever, it still wouldn't start. Finally went out to have a look at it again and it turns out I just forgot to turn the fuel on -_- Being a kick-start bike, I'm now used to making sure the ignition is on before I start trying to kick it to life, but I always forget about the fuel, I think because I never turn it off as I ride pretty much every day.
[QUOTE=anklyne;35937409]I just forgot to turn the fuel on -_-[/QUOTE] I know that feel, happened to me plenty of times.
I once forgot to turn the fuel on, my bike started but after 20 meters it died and then i was almost about to take the carb off to check if has some crap in it and then i realized i forgot the fuel valve off
On the cbr the fuel switch is accessible when riding. So even the one time I forgot it I just turned it back on and started the bike again.
on my moped it was right next to my left foot, so it was easy to turn it while riding, and since i had no fuel gauge I used it a lot since it went from off-on-reserve
I forgot to open up the fuel valve when i went trail riding in the desert, but because i was using a 150cc bike, the fuel didn't run out until i was about a mile and a half away from campsite. Bad thing was that i was an idiot and didn't check the gas valve, so i had to push it back to camp in 110 degree heat. But the good thing was that 3/4 of that trip back was downhill.
I've been riding a Yamaha YBR 125 for almost a year now as my first bike. [IMG]http://www.motorcyclenews.com/upload/217765/images/YBR125.jpg[/IMG] In about another year or so I'll be looking at getting something a bit bigger, but I would like to do a restoration. I have seen some nice 250cc bikes (when fully restored) but am looking for something between 250 and 600 CC to restore. What bikes would you guys suggest looking out for to do this? I have no mechanical experience whatsoever but love bikes, and really want to learn all there is about it.
Tooting my own horn here but I've learned a good bit with my GS500. I've heard GS550s are good bikes and they're probably easy to work on, although they're inline 4 engines unlike my inline 2 GS500.
Feeling happy today. Just found out that I do not have to sell my wonderful BMW because the military is going to ship it out to me as part of my household goods move! I would hate to part with that bike in such a way. Thing is, when I get back from deployment, I am probably going to get a triumph speed triple.

28 dollar part makes suck a big difference for my right side carb on the cm400e. rode for about 20 minutes around the yard no flooding or losing power. [img]http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd205/justinnelson_01/005-1.jpg?t=1337122038[/img]
Went through many problems today. It was my turn to get into the roundabout when I changed to the second gear and throttle to the max. Suddenly I hear some weird clanking sound and the gear just automatically kicks into neutral holding me to a full stop. I panicked rev'ed it and launch with the front wheel off the ground in first. When I landed, front wheel decided to get misaligned by approx 20 degree to the right, damn uncomfortable, I cant even turn left properly now. Almost then a prius almost rammed me when it was obviously my turn to go. Stopped by 7Eleven. Picked up beer, a can of tea, and coffee. And rode home with misery. There is something obviously wrong with my gearbox. When i arrived home before I changed into neutral I made sure it was exactly on neutral before I released the clutch. But then it suddenly changes into 2.
I once had something similar happen to me when I was going to second from neutral where the shifter felt like it was bouncing around between the two and ended up in neutral again. But I figured I just didn't fully engage it.
Autoglym motorcycle cleaner + autoglym wax=shiny bike [img]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/15344980/Bikes/omatpy%C3%B6r%C3%A4t/ZXR.jpg[/img] Shame the crappy cellphone pic doesn't do it justice. E: Well, it rained today and i couldn't resist going for a ride, so it's all muddy from under the tail. :(

Thats a pretty clean bike, what years it is?
These years are my only chance for a street bike, i cant use my KTM on road because its a 06, 07+ can go on our road, a newer bike on our road would cost between 600-1300$ per years for the damn PLATE, 2000$+ for insurance and winter is long here, if there was no snow, i would expect up to 5000$ to plate, while older bike like yours would be A TON cheaper to plate and insure.
