I have a few used and new. Need some? 

Yes. But they are like $1.08 and I need to place an order anyway. Thanks though. I only need to spend $14 more to get free shipping. :banghead:

Pretty sure the world is gonna end on Weds so...I worked on the Red Death 450...🤠

Launched a valve keeper to never-never land, searched for an hour. Boss came to get me for dinner, she stepped right on it and said “this can’t be it - it’s only half of something” 🤣

Man I’m learning to hate 4 strokes 🤬

I know you need a new front tire or maybe a chain & sprocket set? There’s always something you need at the $150 dollar store 🤠

Smoking 2’s must be from my tribe...🤣 Yeah was gonna guess the push & pray method was how Kevin does it, but I bought the cutest little spring compressor 🤠 Works fine but I forgot the step where you stuff a rag in the chamber and pop the retainer with a socket to unstick the keepers. When I compressed the spring, the retainer popped down and pew pew went the keepers 🤣 Said many bad words. 

Borrowed neighbor’s bead blast cabinet to clean the ports and exhaust valves. Didn’t blast the intakes because they’re titanium and the internet says they’re fragile...🤔 Not sure how a titanium coating can slam into a hardened seat all day but still blow off with some grit but whatever...

Kevin you wanna try your method on my Chevy 396 big block springs? 🤣

And who the hell is “JUH 36” and what has he done to my cylinder head? 
Pretty sure this was a low hour stock bike when it munched the crank. Valve lash was still perfect. Did the factory mark these up?

I have new tires and the driveline already. I’m going to see how much a monster energy girl costs.
