Re: BigTyler's Adventures

Made a keto friendly pizza last night. I hadn't had pizza since May. Also decided to celebrate the occasion with a Perdomo Champagne.

I used to buy and fix up and resell old dirt bikes and quads and make a few dollars before my daughter was born, and it's nice to work on a project that I plan on keeping. If only every **** bolt on this thing wasn't frozen. I was just planning on doing a top end rebuild and getting cosmetic stuff done at a latter date, but I decided to go ahead and dress it up now.

Re: BigTyler's Adventures

Had some help from my little best friend today. She helped me take off the wheels, header pipe, and flywheel cover bolt that had been frozen. Now that we finally got it to TDC, a head bolt is frozen. It's always something on a 30 year old quad.

Re: BigTyler's Adventures

One rounded off bolt is keeping me from having this top end apart...

Tried hammering a 3/8 on, hitting it with a punch, tried vice grips, nothing worked. It shall be drilled out.

Re: BigTyler's Adventures

Picked up a 94 XR650L for a good price today. The little one helped me swap the original tank, have it kinda mocked up in the last pic. (Didn't have time to bolt seat or side plastics)

If anyone wants the red one, you can have it for cheap.

Re: BigTyler's Adventures

Great choice of bike. Lived mine.

If you decide on a larger tank, (the stock one is too small for extended trips) I strongly recommend the IMS 4g. I had that, and the bulbous Clarke tank. (4.7?)

Good to have a helper when you are working on a bike.

I plan on getting one, just threw the white one on it to match. I was looking at the Acerbis one because it seemed to be the cheapest, but I like the look of the IMS one better.
