And like TJ said, send em to Ducman. Totally worth letting him deep clean then all you gotta do is maintain as normal. I still get in there and clean, but he gets rid of...

I am a firm believer that you get what you pay for. The first-gen is my favorite, and I have picked up a few in that price range (one w/o title). Nowdays I wouldn't consider getting one that wasn't...

I run a foam Kawasaki filter that I got on ebay for $10. I also have a cheap foam no-name filter that was about the same price - I had to trim it to fit but it worked fine too. It's a spare because I...

I would love to take over ownership if I actually had any need of it :(
That's the same paint scheme as my wife's old new-gen we had back in the day. I like the new-gen 250s but they're obsolete...
