Went for drive and blew off a fucking charge pipe... that was only 15 psi. Not fun being stuck out in Knutsford with no tools... I had to use a washer as a flathead screwdriver.

^ time for some constant-torque hose clamps.

Modded myself a 27mpg tank of fuel, not bad for a V8.

Welp modded a freaking expensive oil change and fuel filter. $226 for syn oil and fuel filter, when I saw her list to choose from I thought it was only $24 more for syn oil so I said sure, it was freakin 75bux more plus I had to pay for the oil filter, bogus crap.

Did some weight mods to the diesel, removed my wood box liner because Line-X is much more bling, then modded a slip tank and pump. Oh and I have an appointment tomo for my front windows to get tinted, was an expensive day.

Snorkle the fucker ^^ or ditch the airbox and throw on a cone filter. Makes those things a little more lively.

Upgraded to I-extreme, I "think" i may have noticed a difference already, time will tell.

haha no, thanks...I like having a reliable daily with great gas mileage that I don't have to have someone following to pick up the parts it ditched

I got the K&N 'cuz it was 5 bucks CHEAPER than the crappy Fram woulda been....it has a few more mods, but mostly for safety reasons (better wipers, PIAA headlights, that sort of thing)...as long as it's my daily and/or as long as I put the kinda kms I'm putting on it, she's gonna be a practical mostly stocker

Friday Night: modded 2 brand new Mevotech axles onto the rear of the 240.


Saturday (less than 24 hours later): destroyed 1 of the 2 axles on the first launch on the Hoosiers at the strip...

OH DUDE! Are you OK otherwise? When I ditched my bike I broke L1-L5 vertebrae when my body hit the tree stump.

Hope you have a fast recovery.

I missed the tree...by how much I don't know...Dislocated and Fractured my right ankle,
sprained my left...finding it extremely difficult to use crutches as it hurts to put my weight on my left ankle and it's excruciating to put weight on the right.

Gravel was key...been riding for 3 years, and bought the '08 3 weeks ago...

Edit: Just talked to the boys at the Suzuki shop, bike has mashed gas tank, snapped off handle bars, tweaked front and rear frame sections, bird cage is pooched, couple of bodyparts (sides and tail) are fubared, looks to be a complete write-off.
