    I agree its definitely @dervish 's fault. :lol3

    The whole operation would have made for a good giggle for anyone after the fact and been incredibly instructive about how to do this work in a less-than-optimal environment.

    Was it Dervish that broke the loctited locknut loose?

    After seeing that, I'm wanting to start packing a 24 inch 1/2 drive breaker bar.

    Yeah it was!

    I'm guessing it didn't have much, I don't think it would have come apart well if it was a proper application

    ( we got lucky on that one!)

    Feo check your damn PMs too

    Man i had beer to drink. i can't be managing all that and drinking. it was outstanding to watch though. good stuff. I appreciate the tutorial and will make a run at mine when i get the time actually do a project. Plus, in the two hours of install, there was very little cussing. That's a miracle in and of itself.

    And, i'm swedish and irish. i can break anything

    I managed to drink beer while we fixed the bike.

    The Nushings website is likely moving to a new home, more details to come, hopefully no interruption in service and it will certainly be an upgrade from the current site.

    nushings headed to Norway, and Latvia today

    Latvia is a first, I need to add that to my wallmap.

    Thanks all!

    nushings@gmail.com if you need to find me quick.

    Website is still in process.

    Supplies are stocked and ready to ship.

    a VERY slight change to the old replace anything warranty policy.

    If you are drinking and smoking "legal" products, and install a set of Nushings into the FRONT threaded portion of your swingarm, this will no longer be covered under the warranty policy.

    otherwise, happy November!

    I installed Nushings in my '01 GSA when it had 80K miles. Took it apart about a year ago with 105K to do a bunch of preventative maintenance before shipping the bike to Europe and Nushings were still working perfectly. Added another 8K this year over there, including Morocco - so Nushings have been to Africa!
    Keep of the good work, these things are great!
