  1. Sorry to hear you're in the 'wars' Muzz. Hope you heal quick and can get back to dreaming about your project. Good stuff those meds, after my knee replacements last year I woke up in the middle of night that I had sworn off them witnessing an argument raging in my brain of the opposing sides pushing their positions. I found the almost out of body experience amusing but it gave me an insight to what it must be like for those seriously addicted to get off them, and also how they can get under a strong willed self deniers guard. I was only taking a very small dosage. Take care. Cheers M

  3. Well done Kaldek this post is almost as epic as the one a couple of years ago when a lawyer sucked us all in whilst he extracted a new VFR out of Honda. Congrats you are a persistent b-----d. I'm hoping for it all to come out well for you.

  5. I believe the entire body of the R/R is a ground. I don't think it is important to have the RR body grounded, the units I bought thru Tightwad weren't internally connected to ground for instance. The mounting bolts will ground the RR body anyway. What is important is to connect the green wire from the Vfrness to a good grounding point and to have the RR body as snugged up to the metal of the frame as is possible even using heat transfer grease to eliminate air pockets. Some computer heat transfer compounds are full of metallic particles, I don't think that expense is warranted, we used
