About $30 bucks ........they are stainless steel and poly.....stick them in a saddle bag and forget about them till needed.......put them away wet no problem, those others you posted would be all rusted and corroded.
Thanks for the input Bomber... When it comes time to make a purchase I'll look into one of those.

Yeah, and it was a real eye opener putting it onto the 1996 frame, all the little things that needed to be done that i had wanted to do but had put off... I was planning on the 2006 to 1996 conversion only taking a couple days but I found things that needed to be replaced or fixed so I did it all including packing all the connectors with dielectric grease, cleaning off/out all the old grase and regreasing, cleaned all the varnish out of the carb, got all the gunk off of everything....

It ended up taking a lot longer than I planned but I fixed and rewired a LOT of stuff so I'm happy with it... kinda.... for now....

As soon as I get it legal in Japan I'll be able to reinstall my FMF exhaust, oil cooler, handguards, kickstarter, grip heaters......

I just don't get it sometimes...

Some days it feels like the front wheel is gonna lift right up when I'm giving it throttle in 1st and 2nd, other times I down shift and gun it and it just revs up without gaining much speed. Maybe a difference between the clutch being colder and then warming up?

Do you always get gas at the same place or whatever is convenient?

I always get non-ethanol premium from the same place.

I know part of it is the clutch going. Looks like my chain is getting worn as well. In the next month or so I will be using my school break to replace the clutch, adjust the valves, and stick a new chain on with a 48 tooth rear sprocket.

The good news is that the stuff you listed should take less than 4 hours if you take your time and have never done it before.

Is the place you get your gas from a place that sees a lot of business? The reason I ask is cause I have got some old bad premium gas from places that don't see a lot of business. I thought it was my carb or something, then I started getting my gas at busy places and my problem went away.

The place I go is pretty busy. It's the only place in town with non-ethanol so they get a lot of business from motorcycles, boats, etc.
