So you just twist the throttle and it breaks? Not after a wreck or anything?

I may or may not be able to make it tonight.

But, finally got my fork bushings put in. Front end is nice and tight and straight again. New graphics and extended shift lever are put on and the bike is nice and shiny begging to be ridden. I will try and be there if i can.

Weather couldnt be more perfect. On a side note, put the rear tire on with a fresh tube, rode down the driveway and the tire went flat, the guys at Honda left the valve stem sticking out only about 1/4" with no nut or anything, thinking the tube got pinched in there. I called and they said they would replace it, but not sure if I have time to get it done before tonight. I swear I have gone through 10 tubes this year, doesnt anyone make tirebawlz or tubeless tires for these little bastards!!!

^ Whats your secret!!
I have given up on changing the tubes myself, maybe Honda of Houston is just getting rich off of me with their $20 changing fee. Last time I got a flat I was jumping off a homemade ramp that was made out of fence boards, so I kinda knew it was a bad idea, but it was so fun. Is anyone here succesful in changing their own tubes?

No wonder they keep my up! I know that I have personally ruined 6 tubes in the past 4 years trying to put the fresh tubes back in, especially with those street tires!

10" rims are too small for tire machines. They have to be done by hand. If your used to doing those on a regular basis then it's not too bad. But it still sucks even then. Best thing you can do is heat those tires up before you slap them on. Makes it sooo much easier. Like everyone else here, i will gladly pay someone else to do them for me.

^ Word, but it would be hella handy to have it down pat, that way I could have a stack of tubes on the bench and never be down because of a nail
