Tips On Buying Cheap Used Atv Parts}

Submitted by: Jason Pound

What are you suppose to do if the part you need for your ATV is not available from the dealer. Well in this instance you have two drastically different options. The first option being going to your local used ATV junkyard. While this is sometimes fun in the long run it will cost you more money and time then the other option.

My experiences at our local ATV junk yard have always been horrible to put it mildly. They usually went something like this. I show up ATV junk yard and go to the counter and ask if they have the part that I’m looking for. In most cases the person behind the counter does not have a clue and just points to the piles of rusted out dirty ATV’S. Then after searching though dirt and mud for awhile I usually just give up and go home, but sometimes I do actually find a part that will work. In these rare events I lug whatever part I feel will work to the counter. This is where my trip usually becomes interesting this is where I find out what the junk man thinks these used ATV parts are worth. Let me tell you this is where I usually realize what a mistake it was to go to the ATV parts junk yard. I usually involves the junk man severely over charging me as if this rusty old part is made of solid gold. This is where I would leave the part on the counter and walk out.

The second option for buying used ATV parts that not everyone knows is buying your discontinued or used ATV parts on eBay. I am sure you have in some capacity or another used eBay to buy something at one time or another in your life. What some people fail to see is that eBay can often be one of the best if not the best place to find used ATV parts. There are some things that may be done to better find used ATV parts in eBay.

The very first thing you need to do when looking on eBay for used ATV parts is to use quotation marks when Searching eBay for used ATV parts.Here is an example of how I search for used ATV parts on eBay. For example if I am hunting for a swing arm for a 1985 250r. How, I would approach this is to first go to eBay Motors and in the search bar type “250r swing arm” it will actually return some results. If I do not find one that fits my application I might then type “250rx swingarm” into the search bar this I where the deals are It would be searching for misspellings.

Another good trick to finding inexpensive used ATV parts on eBay is to do mistypes or rearrange the name of the ATV you are looking to buy parts for. I once found a listing for a “r250” Honda that was in reality a very clean 250r. There’s also another small tip that I should offer about purchasing used parts on eBay. For instance certain models interchange for instance nearly on the parts on an 1984 200x will interchange with the parts for an 1985 200x.

A way to find out which parts interchange with which ATV models is to take a look at the OEM parts & online schematics this will be vary useful. Observe the exploded view for whatever used ATV part you an are trying to find. Then write down the part number and check a year ahead and a year behind to work out if the same part was used on both machines. If it’s the same part number it’s the same part. As usual take care who you deal with on eBay, check their feed back scores. And if the pictures are not clear ask for another picture or a different angle. If you follow my advice you will be able to find cheap quality ATV parts to help you get you quad running again while saving you money.

Britain

The term Britain when used in international news typically refers to the United Kingdom, although it may be used technically to refer to the island of Great Britain, which consists of England, Scotland, and Wales but omits other parts of the UK such as Northern Ireland. It may be clearer to use the term United Kingdom or UK; if you do use the term Britain, link directly to United Kingdom.

    Japanese researchers create smell sensor using genetically engineered frog eggs
    Posted in Real Estate | July 13th, 2017

    Sunday, August 29, 2010

    A University of Tokyo group of researchers, led by bioengineer Shoji Takeuchi, has made an electronic sensor capable of smelling gases. The sensor uses genetically engineered frog cells. Since previous sensors were not very accurate, the scientist decided to try a biological approach. The invention was revealed in a US scientific journal yesterday, and is supposed to be used to design better machines to detect polluting gases in the atmosphere.

    Previous smell sensors were based on quartz rods, which vibrate when a substance binds to them. The gases are distinguished by their molar masses, which can be similar for molecules with different structure, thus relatively often triggering a false positive. Trying to find a more accurate solution, Takeuchi decided to follow an example from insect world. As he explained, “when you think about the mosquito, it is able to find people because of carbon dioxide from the human. So the mosquito has CO2 receptors. When we can (extract) DNA (from the mosquito) we can put this DNA into the frog eggs to detect CO2.”

    Genes of several insects (the silk moth, diamondback moth and fruit fly), injected into African clawed frog Xenopus laevis eggs, allowed them to produce relatively inexpensive and useful sensors. The choice of the species was caused by their widely studied and well-understood protein expression mechanism.

    The modified cells responded to three kinds of pheromones and one odourant, which have similar chemical properties. When a molecule of an odorous substance adhered to the receptor on the membrane protein, ion channels opened for a certain period of time, and a current was generated. Its magnitude was clearly different for all four tested substances, allowing to distinguish between them accurately.

    The colleagues embedded the sensor into a mannequin, so that it could shake its head when a gas was detected. It was easier to observe. Pheromones and molecules with quite similar molecule structure produced clearly distinguishable reaction, with higher accuracy than other biological or human-made sensors. As the research group said, the detection sensitivity of the odor sensor is several tens of parts per billion (ppb), and it is as high as the sensitivity of an existing odor sensor that uses an oxide semiconductor. The distinctive feature of the new sensor is its capability to selectively detect some odorous substances, rather than its sensitivity. Very few false positives were possible due to the biological mechanism involved.

    At normal temperature, the sensor lifetime is about 12 hours, which can be extended by putting it into a refrigerator before first use.

    Shoji Takeuchi says has a great hope for research use in future, since the frog eggs are very practical for genetic engineering, and can be conveniently used to develop smell sensors for a wide range of gases. He said, “The X. laevis oocyte has high versatility for the development of chemical sensors for various odorants. We believe that a shared ability to smell might open a new relationship between man and robot. .. The research will have wide implications… If the sensor is embedded in a nursing robot, it will be able to identify certain mouth odors or body odors. Also, it can be used for detecting CO2, air pollution, water pollution and food. It’s very important for the environment.”

    An interview with gossip columnist Michael Musto on the art of celebrity journalism
    Posted in Real Estate | July 13th, 2017

    Sunday, October 7, 2007

    There are two things one can expect on a trip to see Michael Musto at the offices of the Village Voice: a 20-minute round-trip wait for the elevator and rapid fire answers from one of the most recognizable gossip columnists in the United States. Musto, in addition to his appearances on Countdown with Keith Olbermann and the E! network, has been writing his column for the Voice since 1984. He has recently compiled the best of them in a book released this year titled, La Dolce Musto: Writings by the World’s Most Outrageous Columnist. He was Carrie Bradshaw, replete with a prodigious use of puns, before Sex in the City was a thought. His column is a romp through his life, spats and opinions on socio-political issues. As David Thigpen of the Chicago Tribune wrote, Musto is “a funny and caustic satirist who masquerades as a gossip and nightlife columnist.”

    Musto, a Columbia University graduate, is a rarity in today’s celebrity world: he is accessible. He often corresponds with his readers and his public functions are a mix of parties, nightclubs, academic lectures, university panels and film premieres.

    He is friendly and frank, and he welcomes people to join him in his world (“I just got a message that Michael Lucas died!” he says staring wide-eyed at his phone; the message turned out to be false). Wikinews reporter David Shankbone spoke with Musto about his life and his relationship to the world of celebrity journalism. And he did not hold back.

    Overview Of Three Popular Arcade Games}

    Posted in Amusement Park | July 8th, 2017

    Submitted by: Daniel Millions

    Modern arcade games have been around since the 1970s, although the more popular ones that most people are familiar with were created in the 1980s and early 90s. Currently, arcades are not as thrilling as they once were, especially since home consoles and computer games nearly rule the video game market. Many of the popular arcade games have been transferred to a console setting, so if you still want to play a classic arcade game, you can do so from the comfort of your own home.

    Of the many arcade games that have been invented, there are a few that warrant in depth analysis due to their monumental impact. Mortal Kombat, created by Ed Boon and John Tobias, was released in arcades in 1992. It was a response to the hit game Street Fighter II, which at the time was one of the highest acclaimed fighting games. What made Mortal Kombat special, and controversial, was the incredible amount of violence. By pushing a unique combination of buttons, players could perform fatalities, which were intensely graphic ways of killing one’s opponent.

    The games developers did this on purpose, as a way to generate controversy and thus publicity for the game, and their plan worked quite well; in fact, almost too well. Due to Mortal Kombat and a few other games like it, the Entertainment Software Rating Board, commonly known as the ESRB, was created to give ratings to games (such as E, T, and M). Mortal Kombat has been released on several different consoles, and two film adaptations have been made.

    Street Fighter was conceptualized more than five years before Mortal Kombat, and was developed by the well known Japanese company Capcom. The game features several characters, the most popular being Ryu, who was only one of two characters (the other being Ken) available for play in the first street fighter. The ten other characters shown in the game could not be controlled by the player. The first Street Fighter did not develop much of a following, although it set the stage for sequels, all of which would gain a better following than the original.

    Specifically, Street Fighter II initiated a strong fan base and essentially launched the fighting game genre in to widespread popularity. This was because eight characters could be played, and each had their own unique fighting style. The variety of characters enabled enhanced and prolonged game play, and some people even credit the game with extending the arcade era by a few years.

    Rampage allowed up to three players to play at once, controlling various monsters with the purpose of destroying cities. The three monsters included a giant gorilla (George), a gigantic lizard (Lizzie), and a large werewolf (Ralph). Players could destroy buildings by punching, kicking, or jumping on them. You could also climb buildings and eat people and food along the way. Resistance was provided in a variety of forms, such as police, helicopters, tanks, and the army.

    In addition, if you tried to eat the wrong thing, like an electrical appliance, you would take damage and fall off the building. When one’s life ran out, the monster would revert in to a naked human and walk embarrassingly off the screen. If multiple players were participating, another monster could even eat their human comrade. Several sequels have been created, including some of the Playstation 2, Gamecube, and Wii. No new installments are set to come out in the near future.

    Thrill rides in U.S., Canada shut down after girl’s feet are severed
    Posted in Real Estate | July 8th, 2017

    Friday, June 22, 2007

    The United States amusement park operator Six Flags has shut down nine thrill rides at four parks after a 13-year-old girl’s feet were cut off on a tower-drop ride yesterday at Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom in Louisville.

    Kentucky state officials said a loose cable on a ride called the Superman Tower of Power severed the girl’s feet above the ankles, but they had not determined how the cable broke free, or at what point in the ride the accident happened. The ride lifts passengers 177 feet (54 metres) straight up, then drops them nearly the same distance at speeds reaching 54 mph (86 km/h).

    The girl, whose identity has not been released, was taken to a hospital. Details of her condition were not immediately available.

    Six Flags spokeswoman Carolyn McLean told The Courier-Journal that there has never been a major incident on the Tower of Power. Formerly known as the Hellavator, the ride was built in 1995.

    In addition to Kentucky Kingdom, rides have been shut down at Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, Illinois; Six Flags St. Louis in Eureka, Missouri; and Six Flags America, Prince George’s County, Maryland.

    A Superman Tower of Power Ride at Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington has not been shut down because it is not the same as the ones in Kentucky and the other locations that have been shut, Six Flags spokeswoman Wendy Goldberg told the Associated Press.

    The rides that have been shut down are made by a Swiss-owned company called Intamin.

    Cedar Fair Entertainment Company said it was shutting down similar thrill rides at its theme parks at Kings Island in Mason, Ohio; Canada’s Wonderland in Vaughan, Ontario; Kings Dominion in Doswell, Virginia; Carowinds in Charlotte, North Carolina; and Great America in Santa Clara, California.

    Woman killed on amusement park ride in New York

    Sunday, July 1, 2007

    A young woman was killed Friday night after an accident occurred on a gyrating ride at the Playland amusement park in Rye, New York in the United States. The woman, Gabriela Garin, was a worker at the amusement park, and had worked there for the past seven years.

    The accident occurred near the end of Garin’s shift; as she was loading riders onto the ride. The ride’s new operator, unaware of Garin’s presence, started the ride while Garin was still on it. The new operator then noticed Garin, and shut the ride down in 20 seconds, but Garin had already been ejected from the ride and killed, according to a park spokesperson.

    The ride is an attraction that spins people around in two-seat cars, inside a darkened tent to flashing lights and music.

    This incident is not the first in the ride’s history. In 2004, a seven-year-old from Connecticut managed to free herself from the ride’s restraining bars, and climb onto the front edge of her seat. She fell soon after the ride started. A safety precaution was put in place after this incident, however, the spokesperson acknowledged that it was not followed when Garin was killed.

    The company which owns the ride shut it down, along with two other rides it owns at the park.

    This is the fourth fatality in the park’s history. The park features more than 50 rides, a pool, and a beach. It attracts more than 1 million visitors annually.

    Entertaining At Home More Affordable Than Eating Out}

    Posted in Food | July 4th, 2017

    Submitted by: Georgina White

    As the state of the economy remains unsteady and families and friends are more cautious about their spending choices, many people are going back in time and revisiting the days of quality family time at home versus dining out and spending money on other entertainment.

    Today more and more people understand the benefits of staying at home and still having fun with their own forms of entertainment, such as potluck dinners, card games, and family game nights. Inviting friends and family to your home not only allows for quality reconnection time, it is also a great way to still have fun for the budget-conscious. During such tumultuous financial times, there is a lot of worry and depression over money. By instituting free family-friendly fun, you can keep the money blues at bay and focus instead on how to have fun without involving cash.

    Where There is Fun There Is Usually Food

    There are so many opportunities to entertain in the home and traditionally, food is always at the center of the fun. Think about all of the memories you have as together with your family. Many of the memories probably involve dinner of some kind, such as during the holidays. Whether it is a small social gathering requiring finger sandwiches or a potluck dinner where each person brings a special dish, food can really bring people together.

    Because the cost of entertainment is still high and rising, start thinking of fun ways to bring family and friends together at your own home. There can be family-friendly events or adult-only gatherings planned. Create a menu based on your guest list and do not be afraid to experiment with creative new dishes. If you find you enjoy trying new things, invite some close friends over for some cooking fun. There are also cooking courses you can take which can be a great source of relaxation and entertainment for you and your friends, where everyone can learn new techniques and recipes for cooking at home. When the course concludes, you and your friends can host a get together and show off all you have learned by including samples of your tasty dishes.

    Skip the Caterer Do It Yourself

    Making your own food for kids parties and other gatherings can also yield a huge savings, especially if you are accustomed to having such parties catered, even if that just involves having some pizzas delivered. While it may take a little extra preparation time, cooking for your own gatherings is more cost-effective than having someone else do the work. The money you spend on the ingredients can reduce the overall cost of entertaining to half, depending on the menu.

    Even a simple dinner with family can be a wonderful experience that brings people closer and still keeps a budget on track. So get cooking. Dare to be different and find your creative side, using cooking as your outlet and your loved ones as your source of unending entertainment.

    healthy food

    while letting the taste buds enjoy it too!
