  1. Guessing its not 3am in Australia? Thanks for the quick reply! So if the bolts are stretched beyond the 25mm stock measurement they should hit the bin? Appreciate it!
  2. As I am preparing to install my Seb's clear clutch cover, I noticed after I removed the pressure plate that the clutch springs have been rubbing on their 'posts' enough that there are grooves worn into the metal, maybe 1mm deep or so (shallow but noticeable) Is this normal? What would cause this? Any need to replace the clutch basket? Upon measuring the clutch springs themselves, 2 are below the service limit (in the range of 45.3 mm), while 3 are at the service limit (45.8 mm), so I will be replacing the set.
  3. Hi folks - I have an 02 non-ABS Currently rebuilding the calipers, and as I order parts from mother Honda I am crying on the inside at the price of the crush washers used on all banjo fittings. Best price I can find is $2.42 a piece... I need 10... and paying $25 for washers hurts! (plus that's from a US retailer, I'm in Canada, so either exchange and shipping or my local Honda will just charge way more - currently waiting for a quoted price) Has anyone found an appropriate replacement, ie a bulk pack at Napa? Suggestions / part numbers? I don't want to take chances with my brakes BUT I imagine there are suitable equivalents out there, and I'm hoping the collective can point me in the right direction! Honda Part # 90545-300-000
  4. Curious _ did you order directly from Galfer?
  5. I can't speak for Wolf system per se... But on my 6g with Leo Vince, the same thing happens - the 'right' pipe when viewed from the rear lets out much more exhaust than the left - kinda makes sense though as it is basically a straight shot from the cat up and out, whereas the left side of the Y split would force the exhaust to take left turn... path of least resistance. I imagine some exhausts have a better 'shaped' Y that allows more even split.
  6. My '02 is flaking and rusting in a couple of spots.... i touched it with rust killer mid season but will be pulling and painting before this season starts
  7. Can we still get a step-by-step, possibly with a few in-progress pics as the led's are put in place? At $1.95, I'm very interested as well !!!
  8. Looks great
  9. In about 5 months or so, I'm game :)
  10. Apologies on my end, but I sourced a used cover and so am out of the group buy... great product and no doubt the slots will fill up as the season ends.
  11. Does it look like it sticks out that much when the tail fairing is back on?
  12. I have clutch basket rattle on my 6g; pull the clutch it disappears... obviously the sound emanates from a different spot, but this could be something to check - either problem would be odd for an 18k mi bike
  13. I must be getting too old and safety-conscious, because all I see are flip flops... happy honeymoon!
  14. I did the full works as well on my 02, and I agree it is transformational
