Any of you guys come across a stock exhaust from a '96 to '17 Suzuki DR 650 please let me know .

I'm looking to gut the can and make a tool box mounted to make it look like the bike has a dual exhaust .

The stock exhaust system has a rep of being quite the boat anchor , so it is quite common to ditch it in favor of something ( much ) lighter .

You may want too stop by the VSM shop on Powell Street. That could be something they have lying around.

Updates to the fleet!

1981 Honda Goldwing 1100 - Wanted a physically bigger bike that doesn't make me look weird when riding it, but I like the stripped down style.

I also just grabbed this gem, 1985 Yamaha RZ350. Good from far but far from good type of deal. Plan on returning it to original colours then I'm not sure whats next for it.

And the fallback bike, 1985 Suzuki Intruder 750. I think my buddy wants to buy this one.

anybody try a work-share space in vancouver?

SFU Venture labs has a spot downtown in the harbour center.

I build these temp. work stations alot, most people seem to be quite and keep too themselves. You could check craigslist, but the smaller (not affiliated with start up companies) places usually smell like cat pee and are cramped.

You can prolong your Subaru by changing your coolant regularly so it doesn't become corrosive. Adding better grounds to your heater core and rad. Run a cooler thermostat for the water pump and the electric fan. Overheating those alluminum heads will cause them to warp slightly, don't overheat your subaru.

Retorqing the heads would probably fix 90% of headgasket issues before they happen aswell. Remember the toyota 7m motors, they were notorious for blowing headgaskets. They were factory torqued about 30lbs too low.

That would be Pat at Rocket Rally Racing

I dont think Rocket does service work anymore.

Double check to make sure its not just the valve cover, ive seen a set on a running vehicle that you could wiggle with your hands.

Nice looking old gun. Year of production and caliber?

1965 Model 94 Winchester in 30-30 caliber.

Not as desirable as a pre - 1964 but still a good gun by todays standards.

Mass shooting in Florida.

Really sad event.
I always wonder…..so many Americans have concealed weapons permits. When one of these nut bars goes on a shooting spree no one except the police put the guy down. Chuck Norris never steps out if the shadows and blows the guy away. Pretty low percentage of citizen intervention from a nation that has a need guns for protection mentality.

Your not allowed to carry your weapon in a bar. Or a school, theatre, hospital, military base, etc.

Steve Smith passed away? Is this real?

Rip Stevie,

I often remember the awkward gondola ride with him and Tim the Freak.
