Little better image of in in sun...



I had to ride it home thru standing water. Hopefully, we've finally got enough rain to last. I read one report that we had enough rain to cover the entire state of TX 8 inches deep, and that was before the epic Thursday and Friday rains we got on top of that.

Best riding HD yet. They've added new larger front forks on the bike that really helps the ride.
And I did sell of Kristy's bike a few years ago, she just didn't ride it any.

The OEM was around 300cca, spec'd out in 03 for the 88ci engine. They put the same battery in the 103HO engines. It barely gets them turning over. Then they die leaving you on foot.

This one spins it over like a top. Fires right up.

After almost 900 hours the PTO switch on my John Deere X320 lawn tractor is almost worn out- the PTO keeps shutting off. The replacement part says, Made in USA on the box. A nice surprise after my Simplicity rototiller where everything including the Briggs & Scrapiron motor are "Made in China". Turns out the X320 not just assembled but really  Made in USA

I'm learning Kwikset locks are of poor quality - probably chinese made. The internal guts, I think it's called the deadlatch, is the part that wears out. About every two years! If you zoom in on the imagine below you can see the wear area - the cut out, half-moon shaped area with 2 sheets of overlapping sheet metal. It's planned obsolesce when a heavier thicker metal piece makes contact, the sheet metal bends and the bolt stops moving full distance. Kwikset, Home Depot, and Lowes know it - as they don't sell the cost effective internal wear part replacement at your local store. It's about $9 versus $70 or $80 for the whole assembly. Fortunately I get can get it through Amazon Prime.

Amazon 6wal

I'll keep looking for better quality door knobs as I'm hoping the schlock sold at Home Depot and Lowes is different than what good home builders use.

I've had no problems with Schlage locks. They seem to cost more than kwikset but it's probably a get what you pay for kind of deal.

I just looked and found out in 2004 they moved production to Mexico and China. Sad

I learned that ten years ago (2007-2008) when I was working for a trim contractor. Did just about everything but my main job was hardware installation (door and closet and cabinet hardware)and handling the punch lists in new construction townhomes, condos, and apartment buildings plus some commercial structures. We mainly used two brands for door hardware, Schlage and Kwikset- I installed hundreds of sets. Kwikset was used where price was the main or only consideration ... I wouldn't put it in my own home. Quality control (made in China) was lacking- some of the privacy sets were missing the hole in the knob to unlock the door and on other batches they were too cheap to put small hardware in plastic bags so it wasn't uncommon to be missing parts... Kwikset caused me plenty of headaches.  To be fair this was ten years ago and maybe they've gotten better. They do have what they call the "Signature Series" which is supposed to be better quality (higher grade)- I've no firsthand experience with it. Kwikset does have 2 plants in the U.S. and one in Mexico in addition to China.

Schlage (made in Mexico) on the other hand was a far better experience and thankfully for me, the majority of buildings had Schlage spec'd instead of Kwikset.  Only one bum one that I can recall out of the hundreds I installed. It's what's in my own home (came with the house). After almost a dozen years after they were originally installed, they've (satin levers- ext. door, oiled bronze- int.) held up pretty well. Did replace the entry set on the most used door (garage into the mudroom) a year or so ago and the bronze finish is starting to wear on the pantry door.

If you upgrade, keep in mind the grade level. Door hardware is rated by ANSI/BHMA (American National Standards Institute/ Builders Hardware Manufacturers Association) by three grades, Grade 1 being the highest (mostly commercial stuff) and Grade 3 the lowest (probably what you have currently). Grade 3 is supposed to survive 200,000 test cycles, Grade 2- 400,000 and Grade 1- 1,000,000 test cycles. There are other standards that apply as well.

Apparently Rino-Tuff weed eater string is made in the USA. I wasn't thinking about it when I was at Home Depot grabbing it. Just noticed when I got home and saw the stamp on the package. Smile
