    Tire Recommendation (4 to choose from)

    Yeah, that's what I'm thinking, especially with the $60 off a set of the Avon. Gotta be frank here, I'm a little concerned with the flames theme with the IRCs. They're kinda lame (but oddly I'm still attracted to them), and I don't wanna be sending out the wrong vibes. Seems a little...

    Tire Recommendation (4 to choose from)

    I'm down to choosing between the IRC Wild Flare and the Avon Cobra Chrome, leaning toward the Avon based on reviews (not a lot of reviews on the IRC). Any final thoughts on these two? Anybody have any experience with the Wild Flares?

    Tire Recommendation (4 to choose from)

    I just discovered that Avon has a $60 rebate on a set of Cobra Chrome tires. That brings them in line price-wise as the rest. Tough decision!

    Sorry, that link appears to point back to this thread. What am I missing?

    Tire Recommendation (4 to choose from)

    I bought a 81 bobber earlier this year that didn't run. I've been working on getting it running and it's almost ready to ride. It come with Wild Flare tires on it, but they're from 2007, so I'm not going to trust that on my first ride out, so I'm in need of new tires. I'm definitely...

    Missouri Title via Declaratory Judgement

    One additional thought, if he had the bike titled, it would be easier for him to apply for a lost title and transfer ownership to you. That is where I was lucky, no record of title.

    Missouri Title via Declaratory Judgement

    Yes, you're basically suing the previous owner. A summons will be served. They don't have to show up to court. It will result in a default judgement in your favor. Much luck!

    Metal in oil filter

    Here's what I ended up with after patching. Just gotta throw it back together now and tweak the cam chain and rocker arm adjustments to see if I can get it sounding better.

    Metal in oil filter

    Guess I'll get to patching. What's the best way to clean/prep the filter for JB Weld? Clean with paint thinner? Something else?

    Metal in oil filter

    I thought I saw a thread where someone was using a KTM filter similar to this one: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Reusable-Stainless-Oil-Filter-KTM-450EXC-KTM450EXC-R-/401342539585?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0 Not sure what is involved, but probably more...

    Metal in oil filter

    Not as bad as I was expecting. Thought I'd see metal savings all over this filter based on my original post. Guess they're collecting on those 2 magnets. Filter does have a tear on the one end but was expecting this based on all of the other posts on the subject that I've read about on the site...

    What about valve clearance settings? Should I go tighter that book settings?

    Boyer Bransden ignition was already installed on the bike when I bought it.

    Metal in oil filter

    I have 150 lbs compression on both sides. Carbs were rebuilt by me but somebody had already bumped up the jets. Currently the carbs have 137.5 mains 135 air jets and 45 pilot jets. Mix screws turned out 3-3.5 turns. I adjusted the cam tensioner then the valve clearance but I believe I used book...
