Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Isn't that an online store and not an auction site? I'd think they had more than one of each item. Besides, I'm not looking for one right this minute so it doesn't really matter.

Motorcycle Dismantler They also have an ebay store but the ebay prices end up being higher.

I shudder at the thought of interrupting a lively discussion about volcanic eruptions of oil, but may I ask about that thar ruler? I have never seen a ruler designed to separate inches into fourteen equal parts. What give?

Thanks!

Thanks for all the quick replies bragging about the length of your kickstand () ! Too many to individually quote...

I'll do a little fab work this weekend and stretch mine. To answer the other questions, changing the link is easy and ebay will get you a stock one for less than $50. Brand new is $112 at the dealer...

And no, I don't know anything about oil or dipsticks

They die because people decide to not check the oil........not because they couldn`t read it correctly........

RIDE the bike.....check immediately after the ride,it`ll be fully warmed up,,the scavenger pump has had plenty of time to return oil to the resevoir..,not running,,upright,,,,,,then the next ride you KNOW the oil is full,,unless you find 2 quarts on your floor.

It`s really not rocket science....

No , its not. But how many times have you read on here stupid questions like what oil do you use or what tire pressure should I run? There arent many rocket scientists on here.

Just flexed mine in and bolted right up...........

But i`m going to replace the cheezy bar inserts for something more substantial...the CYCRA hardware that gioes in the bars are LESS than spectacular.........

I`ll post pics of the new hardware when i get arround to replacing it..it will also move the guards out away from the grips a little giving a little more lever room..

I did not cut my levers even with the Cycra hardware though
