    Here's my setup, I'd say they certainly can't hurt the subframe support - 2 of the 3 mounting points are on the frame itself so you could argue that it triangulates to support the subframe. In any case I've run them under a pretty full load and never had any issues.

    LOL, beer helps with everything! Seriously though, don't put the rubber parts in there, it will make them swell up.

    I have a few of those countershafts for use here..... I've read they're not as durable as the 13 spline, what say you? I have a kicker assy I'm draggin my feet on, and I have a 13 spline in another motor that I've yet to take apart, but i'd like your input on it.

    Too early to tell... I only have two riding seasons on the shaft. I used it because I had it in hand and it was in like new condition. I am "thrifty" (cheap):evil
    Replacing a countershaft is not that big of a job once you've done it once so I wasn't too concerned about it.

    Their handguards are bulletproof. Love 'em. Well worth the minor effort they require to tap out the handlebars. They provide the tap as well. The mirrors are good as secondary mirrors but I wouldn't be comfortable with them as primary mirrors on the road. Here's a before-mirror pic -

    From http://http://www.doubletakemirror.com/

    There's a little bit more vibration than stock, but completely safe on the road and more importantly safe from drops! Infinite adjustability, and you can swap out other stuff on the RAM mount if you don't need 2 mirrors. Worked great for me.
