Want to make a little cash? And make a good friend.

Hey Folks,

I got a proposition if you are interested. I need help and Iím willing to pay for your assistant at a reasonable price. Transportation, drinks, snacks, lunch and dinner is on me. Please I am looking for someone with mechanical skill and know a lot about motorcycles. Donít have to be certified long as you capable, knowledgeable of the job I need to get done. I like to start learning the how toís on my own ride and that I like to start racing so I need to know what to do if something goes wrong.
Here is my ordeal brought parts for my bikes and need to install them (2004 gixxer750/2004 yz450). Some of the parts consist of electrical, mechanical installation repairs. I have a manual for it to go by and tools to work with, if not Iíll rent it. But I need someone to show, couch, and mentor me on what I need to get done (two heads are better then one) itís what my papi always told me. You donít have to do any work just show me what needs to get done. Please allow your self some time to work with me because I do not know how long this may take. I like to start around 9ish am. Also I like to know what experience you have to help me.
I like apologized to the sponsors in the form. Not trying to take any business from yall, but I need to learn some of the mechanical repairs on my own. Money is getting tight and Iím only an average-joe making enough to live on. Our economy at the moment is not too friendly. Time line on project last week of June 22-25. PM me if your interested.

Thank you,
gsxr005

I wish I could help, but racer x has a point. Tell people what you plan on having them coach you thru and that will prolly get you more responses

I'll pass the best advice I have received in a long time:

Download the FSM for your bike, read it, and start working on your bike. Don't be afraid of the outcome, in the worst case scenario, you'll need to pay a mechanic to fix it, which is what you were doing in the first place.

Thanks

Hey thanks folks for all of your advice. Got a couple of folks going to help me out. The reason why I haven't posted the parts I wanted to install is because I don't want to advertize what I have put in to it. So my solution to that is, I have pm folks that was interested. Again folks thanks for all the help. Got a lot of good advice. Thanks MH
