(uh, why do you need a new rear?)
$400? Was $500 last time I checked. My thanks to previous owner for removing them.

Being lazy.

Drill or cut the bashplate to expose the oil drain plug.
Use an oil pump to drain the oil out of the side tank. (or fit a petcock in the hose for oil drain).
Use an old coke can, or plastic bottle to keep oil off the side of the engine. (bottle or can cut up)

Oil change - now just 4 bolts.
You, sir, are my lazy hero.

$400 was the itemized amount with the check my insurance company gave me after an accident a couple years ago. Gotta love the insurance industry (unless you happen to be a proponent of responsible economic systems).

Anyone have experience with Yoyodyne sprockets to know if this would be a decent replacement drive sprocket?
http://www.yoyodyneti.com/ProductInf...tid=F%20402.16

It seems i need this:
http://www.yoyodyneti.com/ProductInf...id=110.4362.41
to rebuild the master cylinder for my rear brake. Good price considering what i was fearing, but the store has a minimum purchase so i need to find something else to buy and their rear sprockets are all aluminium.

What's the width of these mounted up? Finding bags that are narrow enough to lane-split is an issue on this wide-azz bike.

Have a good ride!

Does anyone out there have an opinion on using this and eliminating the magnetic drain plug? How important is the magnet to engine health?

Try a 2" extension and a socket. Then you will get better grip on the banjo and the extension lets the wrench clear the frame.

update on weight loss on the dakar. i was at 394 lbs full tank of gas last time, now dropped another 14 lbs. the biggest drop was from a ballistic battery. my stock battery was 9.2 lbs and the new battery is 1.6 lbs. the rest of the weight was from chopping the subframe down, removing passenger footpegs, chopping off a bunch of mounting tabs, made a lighter case saver, so now at 380lbs wet so im thinking 350lbs with no gas.

As always, nice to hear that you lost even more weight :)

(I should really get my Oryx weighed....the papers of the bike say it's 364 dry)

the smaller lighter battery made such a big difference i moved it rearward to help even more, it didnt drop anymore weight by moving the battery towards the back but i got the center of gravity lower and the bike sure wheelies better!
