      Any iOS app devs in the house that can provide a little help?   10/17/2017

      We've been working on a new native app build for TT using a 3rd party's code base.  If we have any apple devs in the house that can help me generate the proper adhoc certificates and load them up into x-code, please shoot me a PM.  I have the full source code of the test version of the app. I just need some help building the required certificates and installing them into the app via x-code.  Please shoot me a PM if you'd be willing to lend a hand. https://thumpertalk.com/messenger/compose/?to=2

Well, had to get some pics of my new PIG in the dirt instead of in a parking lot. The least I could do, I mean I live in Colorado.

Great ride today up in Idaho Springs...... 550 miles on the OD, notice the big ugly temp plate! Got to get rid of that next week.

I hate to fill everyone in. It doesn't matter if we get Osama or McPain- they both will follow whatever orders are given to them by the REAL presidents- the International Bankers. They are simply a puppet provided to us to keep us under the illusion that there is a democracy here. Anyone that does a little homework on the subject will come to realize this. We never left the British Crown at all! Does anyone here know that not one penny of the income taxes we pay in every year goes to pay any politician or to fund any project in this country? Every penny paid in income taxes goes straight to the Federal Reserve bank to pay interest on loans that they have made to our Government!

The Federal Reserve Act turned over power of the government making and controlling money to the private international bankers!!

The IRS is simply a Mafia protection money collector put in place by these same bankers to shake you down and intimidate you into giving up your hard earned money to them.

Anyone out here know that there is NO law that says you have to pay income taxes? Or, that there are DOZENS of former IRS agents that quit their jobs and quit paying taxes because, they too- found out they had been duped into ruining people's lives collecting money in the name of a law that does not exist?

Do some research, people. Google this. Look it up on youtube. You will find soon that it doesn't matter who is "voted" in. They will do whatever they are told to do by these bankers, like the good little slaves they are. (In exchange for a nice, cozy living.)

That is my little piece of the political view that is a lie and a myth.

You, my friend- are the one that is nuts for not doing your own research and finding out that it is the truth.

      So I recently bought an 85 XR600R. My 1st bike when I was 13 was a 79 XR 250 and loved it. Now I bought the best bike from a young kid who said it was running in his ad. Of course it wasn't when I went to look at it. But, the price was right after I talked him down a little. My son and I have replaced the CDI, plug, and coil pack ensuring it had a good spark. We cleaned the carb, adjusted floats (it's the duel carb set up) and discovered that the mixture screw was missing, which we replaced. My son managed to get it started a few times by relentlessly kicking it over because he's 15. Haha. It idled unpredictably and cut out mostly within a minute not to be started again until it cooled. It ran long enough once for me to ride it up and down the road a few times backfiring with almost every gear shift for about ten minutes tops. It seemed underpowered but was still able to lift the front wheel off the ground slightly during takeoff. Now I didn't tell you that I had bought a compression gage and checked it prior to all this. It was roughly 70psi which I was told by a coworker was plenty to get it started and ride on. With all the difficulty starting it I decided to check the Haynes Manuel that I have and check the actual compression spec which I should have done from the beginning. Now that I realize I'm at/under 1/2psi compression I'm doing a little research as to what to do now. I'm not a mechanic, but I've gotten my hands in there doing simple repairs and whatnot. If I have a manual I'm pretty much good to go, but a full motor rebuild is a little daunting. I have a good friend that is an auto mechanic that lives right down the street that just started getting into restoring bikes that is willing to help me out. My biggest concern is the availability of parts for this motor. I've seen some stuff here and there on the web, but I'm looking for any suggestions that can point me in the right direction. I Really LOVE this bike and would love to see it ressurected, but I'm afraid I'm going to get too deep in to my pocket to have it make sense. Any info or suggestions welcome!

      I have some new rims in sizes 18x2.15 and 21x1.6. This would be inside measurements, flange to flange. 32 spoke holes in both.
       
      They are new, in chrome , good for adding some bling to a modern bike, or restoring an older one.
       
      I listed them on ebay.

      Hello, I recently purchased a used 2003 XR650L. The bike is giving me a weird problem. It has a misfire under load. In any gear, if I am at about 60% throttle, is bucks and misfires, and has no power. It feels as if the bike is bouncing off of a rev limiter. I can eventually make my way up to 65mph if I stay in 4th gear and be easy on the throttle. 5th gear is useless, the bike will barely run in 5th gear, any sort of acceleration and the bike misfires and bucks. The bike came with a Big Gun exhaust slip on pipe, and a Uni air filter, other then that it appears stock. The male I purchased it from advised the gas in the tank was one years old gas. The first thing I did was remove and drain the tank, change the oil, and clean the air filter. The problem definetely wasn't gas related. I removed the carburetor and inspected it, it was dirty but I did not find anything major wrong with it. It looked as if someone half attempted to do Dave's mod, as the tab on the fuel mixture screw was ground off. I went ahead and completed Dave's mod while I was inside of the carb. I have no clue what size jets are in the bike. I put it back together, and the problem is still there. I ordered a new CDI box, and put that on the bike and the problem is still present. Any help would be great!

      I'm trying to find an XR650R that had already been tagged and titled. Any recommendations on where to look? I'm not having any luck so far. I live in GA and I'm definitely willing to travel pretty much anywhere east of the Mississippi (maybe farther if I have to). Any help is appreciated.
