Default My bent up but clean bike.

     

Ok, a couple weeks ago i broke my collar bone on a dirtbike (of course) The EMT's didn't know if I broke a couple vertibre in my back for a week! But anyway since I couldn't do anything I went out side and looked at my bike to see the damage I bent the subframe pretty bad. When I can I'll post pics. My bike is Very ghetto. It's a 86 TT 350. I got a new UNI airfilter for it and I looked at the airbox: My God it looked like it hadn't been cleaned since 86! Dust was caked on it real bad. I took the air boots off and used my finger to wipe the extra dirt out of the carbs!!! I was going to post and ask why my bike gave out after half throttle, but my bro Blitz393 was 100% sure it was a clogged main jet. And he was right. Suprisingly So, I cleaned out the airbox and cleaned out the carbs, and put on the new UNI airfilter, and It runs great according to Blitz cuz I cant ride it YET...
Man Blitz is so lucky! He gets more air than I ever have and crashes way harder and still hasn't broken anything on a dirtbike. Some of you have seen the pic of him doing the INSANE ditch gap, the one currently on his avatar, and he nose dived off of that and landed on his head. He still didn't break anything! I don't want him to but man I can't believe he hasn't broke anything, especially off of that but oh well. I have a good running bike waiting for me to ride whenever I can. Like I said before, I'll post pics of the bent up bike when I can. Post more later.

Kev.

Well Kevin,

Like my Momma always says,

Caca happens that can't be prevented.

No wonder I spent 1/2 my childhood sitting in the cow pasture.

Yep, "ca-ca" does happen, no doubt about that.

Don't worry about Blitz, I hate to say it but one day his card will be drawn, it's just a matter of time and trust me he knows it. When flying motocycles thru the air, accidents do happen occasionaly.

It is amazing how some people avoid injury.

3 years of mx, lots of crashes, no broken bones.

Some folks just break all over the place.

Now my parents are debating weather to sell the Z-400 that we have and buy a used warrior, or keep the 400 for me. I hope we keep the 400

Oh ya, warrior vs z400 is not even a comparison. The Z is way better. Hope you get to keep the Z
