Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

install big bore kit on my honda xr400


Entries from everyone

Ivan OpalkaWhy?

I have 2001 Honda xr400. Predominantly my riding consists of single trails in the North West of Washington state. What I am trying to accomplish is to give the engine second life, without sacrificing its reliability and spending too much $$.

Considering that this is an air cooled bike with 9.3:1 compression ratio I did not want to choose a kit that would increase the compression to the levels where I had to start using race gas. The same goes for a clutch. If you increase the power too much the clutch will start to go faster as well. Keep it simple.

I am going to bore the cylinder from 85 mm to 87 mm which will increase displacement from 397 cmm to 416 cmm and install piston with 10:1 compression ratio. The kit goes for about $150.00 plus $80.00 for boring and honing of a cylinder. 4 years ago
