  1. I bought (another) 06 YZ250f today, and it came with two White brothers systems. One is the aluminum pro, the other is slightly different, not exactly sure what it is. It is a little longer, same endcap, but a different color. I think it might be titanium, but not positive. Where can I get a spark arestor endcap for the WB systems? I have been looking around and see that v&h bought White brothers a while ago. Do their endcaps work on the WB silencer?

    I was not speaking explicitly of Joe, I was more implying to the rather dense croud of you, tkinney, and a select few who contribute nothing to the conversation and again, are not in anyway in any position to be of any help to anyone on this topic.

    More or less. I didn't think you would understand a quote from an actual text book on the subject of Logic.

    That is right. We went through everything that JOE presented to us. He didn't mention that he had MORE information that he didn't give to us, and more emails/pm's. How would anyone know if he said more or less "This is it"? We aren't mind readers. It is unreasonable to expect us to just KNOW that Joe has more information and pictures than what he sent to us as his side of the story. When you are trying to convince someone that you are right you tell them everything you know/have on the situation. You don't hold some of it back and only bring it out later on! But that doesn't matter. The point is that he has brought it out now, after the bridges have been burned. You will notice that nobody else wants to help at this point, and those of you who are opining about the subject are not in a position to actually help, only in a position to make noise, which you are doing successfully. I enjoy a good argument, and am still willing to be of some help, otherwise I would actually go and do some work.

    2 weeks of examining everything that was presented to us was more than a "quick look". Can you clarify your first paragraph? I can't decipher what you are getting at. You are solidifying my opinion that you don't understand how this works. I am continuing to ask questions, and you are not part of it other that to waste time. Joe is answering the questions, and you keep going back to things that were said or were not said earlier. The conversation has moved past where you are stuck. You want the "problem" solved, but don't want anyone to try and solve it. You want to criticize the process, and you want to partake in the process, but you do not know how, so you point out what you think is wrong. I really don't give a rats arse what others are saying about me. My self-worth is not based on what other people on the internet who do not contribute to society think of me, so I really don't care what you say to me or about me.

    No, it doesn't work that way. You made the statement, you search through all of Tkinney's posts and your drivel and find where Joe said he doesn't want to send the motor back. Try page 12 or 13.

    Here you go, I found this for you so you can understand proof vs evidence. An exhibit is something, some object, produced in evidence. Evidence is something that contributes to knowledge of what happened. Proof is evidence that is sufficient to demonstrate the certainty of something. "The lawyer for the Crown (BE - prosecuting attorney in AE) introduced hair samples as an exhibit at the trial of the alleged murderer. Although these samples were not proof that the accused committed the murder, it was strong evidence against him". There is no proof in science. Proof is for mathematics and alcohol. You cannot prove anything in science to a certainty, though you can disprove a lot Your argument that the thing has been prooven is bunk. Seeing as new evidence keeps being introduced all the time, you cannot with certainty state that anything has been prooven. You can simply state that the evidence indicates xyz.

    Very good, Genius. Too bad Joe doesn't want to send the motor back since he has already worked on the thing. If you are going to flame me for an aparent lack of information I am going to give it RIGHT back to you and tell you to go re-read the entire thread before you speak again.

    I finally get it. You feel left out, so you make yourself relevent by being a PITA. You all want your cake and to eat it too. You bitch that we aren't trying to help, so I go out of my way to spend 2 evenings and many hours emailing, again, to see if there is ANYTHING I can dig up to help Joe out. Then when I ask for more of what you define as PROOF (It isn't PROOF you fool, it is EVIDENCE), you don't even think about how it fits into the big picture. Here is something for you to consider, and Joe, don't take this the wrong way, but the more I ask for stuff the more information you come up with that was not given to Pat, whom you contacted for help. Had ALL of this come up when it was discussed on KTMTalk perhaps it would have been better for you. I keep digging, and you keep adding to the evidence. Keep it coming, BTW. Give me everything you can dig up, because the O-rings, the other PM's, and any EMAILS you can dig up help. It would have been helpful BEFORE, as in 1.5 months ago. If information is withheld when it is asked for initially, how can anyone expect a problem to be resolved properly? Tkinney, you are extremely dumb on this topic. You make yourself sound stupid every time you speak and criticize. Explain to me, please, how you would have handled the situation? Here is what we did: Joe contacted Admin and stated the problem, and he was very articulate on the exact problem with the condition of the engine. Admin contacted Ed. Ed responded. Admin posted everything in our forum. We had only what Joe sent to Admin. A lot of the stuff that has been posted here today was NOT presented to anyone. This is the first anyone has seen of this stuff.

    Any between you and Ed. How did you first communicate with him that you wanted the Engine? The entire chain of communication is necissary, not just the PM's after the fact.

    We both agree 100% on something at least: nothing has changed. Where are the Emails between you and Ed? They are not in the AC section on KTMTalk, which means that you either didn't send them or someone didn't post them. Did you forward all of them to Pat? He would have posted them had he recieved them. I can't get them from Ed, so hopefully you can send them.

    Only Admin can ban people. However, it was #2 that made some people mad, and #3 that didn't help.

    It isn't my "Job" to defend anyone. All I can go on is the information given to me. Not all of the Emails have been posted, have they? Only the PM's. Yes, we all have seen those PM's, but PM wasn't the only method of communication, there were several Emails as well, which you have neglected to post for the mob to view. The mob keeps saying that we didn't get all the information, but we have a rule that what is said and discussed stays inside the AC, so I won't go into more detail about all of the communications in public. But perhaps you should post the emails that were sent rather than present your side only. I also do not see the PM/email posted (maybe I missed it in the 25+ pages) of where you told Ed that you only ran the bike for 30 seconds. Was there ever a question about the porting or head work done on the motor? Ed said in one email you sent him you said you didn't think there had been any head work done. Your exact words that you sent to us: "I do not want a internet war of words, nobody ever wins." Yes, it seems you did.

    That is not why you were suspended. Tell the whole truth. Life membership = $100. OOPS! It IS $200 now! Been a while since I looked at that tab. Sorry. You will base your decision to appeal your suspension based on how a deal you have nothing to do with comes out? Read that back to yourself.
