I needed a 9mm open-end wrench to hold the motor shaft during a recent Kirby teardown - I own(ed) only one, which was suspiciously absent. Odd, since no machine on the planet (with the exception of the Kirby shaft) is made using 9mm fasteners. After failing with pliers and vice grips, my project was on hold until ... 24 Nov 2009 07:50
anyone try the Dunlop MX51 yet?
I was ready to get a new D756, and found out they're not making them anymore--at least that's what 2 dealers told me today. Dunlop still has it listed on their website, but no local stock. Looks like the online places still have backstock... Anyway, I'm thinking of going with the replacement, now called MX51. ... 20 Nov 2009 20:15

CRF 450 transmission drain plug
I have a '04 and an '08 CRF 450. The '04 drain plug got cross threaded and now there aren't any threads left. I was very careful with the '08 plug (I bought it new a few months ago for $4395 - bam!) and yet I can now feel that the threads are slightly buggered up. It will only get worse from here. Anyone el... 12 Nov 2009 10:40
ISF2010 set Date?
Let's start a new post and vote for the best dates for ISF2010 One request from me is not to pick the week of July 20-24th as the US MotoGP @ Laguna Seca is the 24th-26th. Otherwise I am pretty much game for any other dates. Although a "combination trip" has it merits too. SloCalSpode ... 20 Nov 2009 07:54
RMD User Map
On Wed, 28 Oct 2009 12:49:31 -0400, "KW" It seems like I've seen a feature on some web based forum where you can add your location and some infomation to a USA map. It might be fun to come up with one of those for RMDers. That and a Mapquest route from California to New Hampshire with about 50 inter... 18 Nov 2009 16:56
