Sometimes ingenuity isn't pretty, but if it works, it's beautiful. :)
Good thinking, pretty unusual for torque settings to be for lubricated threads. But good catch.
Wally World is my go-to for batteries. Yuasa priced themselves out of my pocketbook years ago.
Just nitpicking a bit, but if you lubricated the threads, you should reduce the torque setting by about 15%, so the setting should have been 125...
Absolutely agree, love the shirt, care less than zero about the message.
Yeah, it reminds me of my mother and her need to put slip covers on all the furniture. To "protect" it, from what and for whom, I have no idea.
It just so happens I own the best year: 1999, in the best and fastest color: red. Just good luck on my part. :)

The Power Commander, on my '99 anyway, takes almost all of the jerkiness away when moving from idle to just off idle. Very hard

I remember that beer pretty fondly, as being pretty darned good.
Bud or Bud Light, they're both nasty.
If you don't walk around that place with your chin on the floor, and drool dripping, you're not a real enthusiast.
I couldn't feel any difference either, but I'm thinking it's for noise abatement. The stock exhaust is really quiet, and you might
be able to hear...
When I installed the 520 conversion on my '99 I went from the rubber coated sprocket to just a regular
one, and couldn't tell any difference in...
I used to appalled at the idea of trailering my bike anywhere, but things change as you get older. LOL [IMG]
And loading the VFR:...
The spacer should be pretty snug between the bearings, so there won't be much "nipping up" when the axle is tightened. :)
