this is just messed up....

ok... this is just freakin weird.


as you know, my throttle cable broke and i have to replace it. i just put my new cable in and it was too short(by about a foot and a half). so i held my old cable, and my new cable side by side to see how short it was.... THEY WERE THE SAME LENGTH!


how does that happen!?!

hehe. iv only done a wheelie once, and im not going to try one again untill i have some $$$$ saved up just incase something brakes because the transmission is the only thing holding the engine up. theres no support at all back there.


besides, right now its running rich and im losing power because of it, not sure if it would do a wheelie right now or not.
