I thought I would do something nice for my wife for our 15 anniversary. She loves junk and anything that I make with my own hands. Lets just say it went over well.

« on: August 26, 2018, 11:16:08 PM »
I found this cool old 60 ton press on offerup yesterday and I just couldn't pass it up. I ended up getting it for $280. It needs a little tlc, but otherwise it's in decent shape.

I recently got custody of my 11 year old son. So I naturally had to buy him a 250r.  I found a 86 R with a few good parts. The best part is that I got it for  $800. I am trying to cobble it together for my upcoming trip July 7th. Wish me luck!

Lounge / Happy Thanksgiving!

Hopefully everyone is going to be with friends and family enjoying a wonderful meal together and relaxing. I thought it would be cool to see how others prepare their turkey, ham, goose, lamb, or......... I usually put our turkey in the smoker. A 15 pound bird usually brings the best results. It's always moist and delicious. So fellas post up how you cook your turkey, ham, goose, lamb, or whatever you have. Happy holidays my fellow R addicts, Loren

Carburetor, Intake, and Exhaust / Reed damage
« on: September 13, 2017, 12:42:37 PM »
Something that makes me scratch my head in confusion. Maybe someone can shed some light on this issue. I installed a brand new set of reeds in my vforce 3 reed cage in February 2016. I pulled them out about a month ago and they looked terrible. This has been a problem for me since buying my R. In 4 years I have bought 3 sets of reeds. It's very annoying at $60+ each time.
What would cause them to chip and fray in such a short time? I have about 50 hours on each set of reeds. I have a reed spacer that I was thinking about trying
