So tired of phone ringing so much that I can hardly get any work done, and it is always some kind of kid that thinks that for a hundred bucks or so, he'll get a real motorcycle that he can drive all over town every day for 5 years, then get an oil change and some air in tires and ride another 5 years.

Pretty much sums up 98% of our forumites who are in this Sport/ Hobby for what they hope is a cheap not to pedal.
I came in from the dark side too. Its the culture, Cheap = good they hope.

2 guys come in today - one, I try to adjust carb & no good, check head gasket and compression, after 'bout 45 min he tells me he hit a car - I look closer and tiny crack down carb slide behind fuel line - replace and good

other guy bought inet kit & chain too short - didn't think to bring chain or measure chain - had to cut him 130links before he thought it would fit and I'm not sure if it might be too short or I just lost 20 links because he bought one of those 98link kits : (

I'll probably get to end of roll and find I'm 5 links short to get one more chain out of it.
