My "loaner" bike is a '04 KTM 125. I've got $800 into it. It's actually a couple bikes that had everything needed to make one complete bike. LOL Because of that I have a rolling chassis I've been wanting to do something with. Need to find a motor to put in it. Maybe make a hardtail neighborhood cruiser or something out of it.

Andrew are you running a pressure regulator setup with that? I have found with carburetors that the pressure can overpower the float and flood the engine. I would see about getting an adjustable FPR with a bypass and have it return back to the tank. From what I understand the constant flowing of gas will also keep the pump running cooler, thus extending its life.



On a second note, I am heading out and hopefully this find is as good as I hope. I might have a very lightly used soft top will all hardware and tinted windows for $250. The guy has a dual top and never uses the soft top.

I do not have a regulator, the pump puts out 5-7psi at the outlet, so i'm assuming it loses a bit of pressure as it travels (much like irrigation). It SHOULD be good to go on the carb without a regulator.

Not a bad idea though. Also, i dont necessarily need a regulator to recirculate the fuel. I could just install a fuel filter with a return line, like they did on later model wagoneers/cherokees, and plumb that back to the tank....though i'm not entirely sure how i'd have it enter the tank, because mine did not come from the factory with a fuel return line setup.

Adding a fitting to a fuel cell is pretty easy. I would imagine it would be similar with just a standard tank. They make AN fittings with a barbed nipple on it. Basically you just drill a hole and there's a nylon type washer that goes on the outside and the inside with a nut inside it. Hardest part is pulling the tank. Drilling the hole is easy, empty the tank though so you can make sure and get all the shavings wiped out. Make sure the main hole is big enough to squeeze your arm into though cause you'll need to be able to get a wrench inside it to tighten up the fitting.

well I just got the softtop. It was off an 08 so I had to hit the center of the header panel with a grinder really quick. And the drivers front door surround is broken. Other then that it is pretty much in perfect condition. Not too shabby for $250

Here is something my wife found today during our adventures between CA and Goodsprings. Kind of hard to see, but try to focus on the brightest spots in the rock. It's really bright in the sunlight. We took it to a coin shop near our house to have it acid tested. It's silver. Not a lot.

Unless we busted it out of the matrix rock surrounding it, we'll never know how much silver. I wouldn't estimate the total weight to be more than a few grams. Since silver is still only around $50 an ounce, I don't see it as worth breaking up so it'll sit with the rest of our growing rock collection.

My wife sure has a nose for silver. I wish she'd tune it for gold.
