    Chinese kid arrested for Counterstrike

    So it's the gaming company's fault this idiot made a map of his school? There will from now on be red flags throw up for anything relating firearms and schools. If students cannot understand this they are the dumbasses, not the parents and school officials. Granted, expulsion was too harsh. It surely was a knee jerk reaction, but kids need to realize what zero tolerance means.

    New Graphics - White YZ

    I prefer the before pics. Infact, that bike with the simple black and white is one of my all-time favorites. I like it enough that it served as my desktop pic for a while

    Bleeding brakes PLEASE help!

    I had the same problem with my '00 after installing a SS line and then bleeding it. I zip-tyed mine overnight and it was plenty firm by the next morning.

    One hour to go!

    Who will be this years champ? Should be one hell of a race
  10. Could have been, I know he rode both. But I also just found this... Knievel rode this motorcycle during some of his most spectacular jumps. By carefully coordinating his angle, thrust, and speed, which reached 90 to 100 miles per hour at takeoff, he remained in the air for as far as 165 feet. He chose (and customized) this motorcycle, a 1972 Harley-Davidson XR-750, because it was a light, dependable racing machine. Made of steel, aluminum, and fiberglass, it weighs approximately 300 pounds. http://americanhistory.si.edu/collections/object.cfm?key=35&objkey=175 Ofcoarse that doesnt apply to the Palace jump, since that was what, '68? Another fun fact: Evel still holds the all time ABC's Wide world of Sports TV viewing audience record for his 52% of household share when his Kings Island performance was broadcast in 1975

    The '01 setup has a boss spring in place of one of the disks in the '00 setup. The pushrod setup is also different. Here the list of parts need to convert the '00 setup to the far superior '01 setup parts list for the 2000 --> 2001 clutch mod 5JG-16321-00-00 PLATE, FRICTION 5JG-16383-00-00 SPRING, CLUTCH BOSS 5JG-16384-00-00 PLATE, SEAT 93511-32027-00 BEARING, BALL (PUSH ROD ASSY.) 5BE-16356-00-00 ROD, PUSH 1 5JG-16357-10-00 ROD, PUSH 2 5JG-15453-00-00 GASKET, CLUTCH COVER You can go to www.yamahaoftroy.com and use their parts finder if you want an exploded view to actually see the differences between the two setups.

    I wish they would sticky that to the top. After the 450 cam mod, that is the next best thing!
  15. Yes, and most likely some new shims too.
