  1. Don't buy a v8 diesel. Less main bearings. Firing order is not smooth as a straight six, shorter stroke, etc, etc, My $.02
  2. 2006 Cummins is the best year imo.
  3. Ouch. I'm not a radiologist so my opinion is just an opinion but it looks like your back is ok.
  4. My boat cost me aprox $30 per trip in fuel. I use my boat for fishing so my kicker usually get more use per trip. All maintenance I do my self. The biggest cost is storage at the marina. $190 per month. I pay month to month so I only pay for 4-5 a year and park it in my driveway for the rest of the year.
  5. I'm sold aluminum boats. My 18' liftertimer is awesome. One day I would like to upsize
  6. I doubt there is much benefit to block heater that "flows" if the thermostat is closed. Keeping the battery warm and the oil pan warm would be a better idea.
  7. I picked up an 2009 bws or Zuma brand new. Its bad ass! Only mods ive done was take off the butt ugly flame stickers and the dual head light mod. Mine will do 70 km the flats but I've gone almost 80 km drafting behind a car at sea level. I ended up going with the Yamaha because it was a 2 stroke so it has more power stock. Also has a front disc brake opposed to the drum brake on the ruckus. The ruckus does look cooler tho.
  8. I do maintenance on a fleet with the LLY. IMO the engine is junk and a throw away. Most common problems are, EGR clogs, egr cooler leaks and recently we've been seeing #1 and #2 glow plugs go NFG. That is a quick fix though. When the engine wears past the 100k to 150k km range the next problem is fuel dilution from the DPF. When the exhaust regen starts, fuel blow by past the ring can fill the crank case in a couple days. , I would go for an older Diesel if I needed a diesel. If I didnt need one I would go with gas. Right now where I am diesel is more $$$ then gas and maintenance will always cost more.
  9. Either the seals are bad or possibly installed backwards
  10. nice...
  11. take the carb apart again and clean the jets. I like to soak them in carb cleaner for a while before i blast them with compressed air. Make sure all the tiny holes in the pilot are clean.
  12. test the batteries then get back to us with the results... go from there.
  13. Brutal story. I have a friend who put a sub woofer in his truck and didn't fuse it. He said it was only for a one weekend so it was ok. 8 months later the main power supply to the bazzoka tube shorted out some how. It turned red hot, then melted right through the main vehicle harness. F*cking dumb ass.
  14. Those wabasto's are a joke. Just so the driver can have instant heat. When they are running improperly they completely engulf the vehicle. The dicks from the factory like to install them so the fuel filters and fuel line are touch the exhaust pipe.
  15. dr350 is a great bike. I had a 94 back in the day.
