  1. Welcome aboard. How long has it been since the oil was changed? The Hondamatics run on oil pressure, so you need the proper amount of JASO MA rated oil in the engine, and I'd run full synthetic (I use Rotella T6) and keep it fresh. Could also be a bit of trash in the carb, or a dirty air filter.
  2. @shadetree will get you fixed up. He adjusts valves in his sleep.
  3. I got cameras watching cameras, a giant 125lb black devil dog, and a crotchety old man with a shotgun living next door. If someone wants to face those odds they deserve whatever they can escape with. I like the Wyze cams because IF you are close enough to connect to wifi, they record and save to a cloud as well as the SD card in the camera. So if someone steals my cameras, I'll get a good pic of who done it.
  4. Redneck ingenuity there.....
  5. I don't have anything fancy. Bunch of Wyze cameras set up all over the place. They have a yearly fee if you want a lot of the features, but if you're ok with basic camera recording to a SD card they're cheap, seem to work well, and are easy to install.
  6. Welcome aboard. Start a thread in the general ATV discussion section, or in one of the utility sub-forums and we'll see what kind of help we can offer.
  7. Had some time to do a little more yesterday. Got front rack painted, but not yet installed. Front fender on, tank covers installed, floorboards are put in place, but I still need to paint and install the steps (the jagged metal footrests that bolt onto the foot pegs). So I'm down to the final few bits. Need to put front rack on, paint and install steps, and put the forward "air guides" in place. MAN have prices gone up on the little bits and pieces on these machines. The little cover that goes where a footshifter would be on a footshift machine? Over $100 now!
  8. There are two things I could eat every day and not get tired of. One is a baked potato with cheese, sour cream, bacon, red onion, and Frank's hot sauce The other is a big salad (preferably romain) with grilled chicken, cheese, eggs, bacon, pineapple, tomatoes, croutons, and zesty Italian dressing. Neither are healthy at all with all the crap I put on them to make them taste good, but I never tire of those meals. Another baked potato "recipe" I like is the MaCalisters Deli "Spud Ole" which is no longer on the menu, but I make it at home fairly often and the last time I went they would still make it if you asked for it (it was about $10 though!) Baked potato with chili, cheese, butter, sour cream, red onion, jalapenos on it. Looks like cat vomit when you mash it all up together, but it tastes awesome.
  9. I've spliced on a new plug on a 350 Rancher for my neighbor. Of course, getting a good new plug will be the difficult part. I had a hacked up harness that i could cut one off of.
  10. Well I'm using the ones my grandmother had in her kitchen LOL. I'd say getting some that are specifically made for the purpose you SHOULD be safe. https://www.amazon.com/Aluminum-Potato-Spud-Baking-Nails/dp/B002UC9JC6/ref=asc_df_B002UC9JC6/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=198068498826&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=10670113662006573816&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9026054&hvtargid=pla-348348538300&psc=1
  11. Yall should try it. My family has always had a bunch of aluminum nails in the misc drawer in the kitchen for baked potatoes. Just make sure whatever you use is safe for food. You don't want chemicals or metal leaching into your food. Potatoes are much better actually baked than they are in the microwave.
  12. Slather a potato with bacon grease, sprinkle some garlic salt and black pepper on the skin, and bake. If you put an aluminum nail in the middle it will heat the potato from the inside as well and cook it faster, keeping the skin from drying out.
  13. I still save bacon grease. Works great for reseasoning cast iron, slather it on a potato before you bake it (makes the skin taste good), use in green beans (ham hocks work well too). As for wrapping paint brushes, keeps the bristles from drying out and getting hard. Clean them well in thinner, then wrap in foil.
