The OEM fuel filter is not that great. I'd go ahead and replace that too. Especially on a bike that old. Go with the Golan which you can clean.

Definitely one of the best looking 14's out there. I also prefer without the rally fairing.

I see you have the axle puller in the rear. Do you leave that in there all the time?

You're the first I have heard who has done this, so yes- providing guidance and pics would be helpful. Especially if you do end up doing a proper high flow replacement.

The other nice thing with the SMC front end is the 320mm front disc and radial brake. Makes for less brake fade on a racetrack, etc.

150 is OEM for the SMC, so that is the right size. You might be able to fit some of the 160 tires in there but they're too big, basically.

If you can switch out to more road-friendly tires, I'd do that. 1000 kms on the MT-21 is fine- but you'd get more comfort and better traction from a road-focused tire.

Wow.

It would be cool if someone made forged replacements as it looks like the OEM mounts are cast.

Or maybe it is better that these mounts are cast and that they fail before damaging the frame?
