    Ok this is what I have so far ln image.jpeg both kits are a total of 4.25 lbs. yes I removed stock tires and mounted a set of Mitas E07 with what you see in the pictures. The only thing missing is the little bottle of Ruglide tire lube.

    I've never used nitro tape but it sounds like it could come in handy - can you unroll a couple feet and "re-roll" it as a smaller roll?
    How long does it take for the layers to "fuse" together?

    I'm assuming that you could re-roll it as it has no adhesive on it itself (it fuses to itself) and has a protective film that you peel off. Time wise as per the video it seems to fuse pretty much on the spot.

    How is this different from rescue tape? Looks like a rebranded version by Motion Pro. Not saying that's a bad thing, but I like to carry the transparent version. Makes it easier to inspect if I effed something up. As with most of my tools, I have never had to use one of these, but I hope it works as good at it claims it does.

    I'm pretty sure it's the same and just rebranded as you say. Transparent makes sense :clap

    I've read on this thread that the upper shock bolt is a T55.
    I'm looking for the bottom shock bolt is it the same size or upper ? I know it's a not a T50 too small
    Thanks :)

    ditch the wd40, it has no value and only takes up space. if you're using it as a lubricant, which it is not, then get a proper product, something like tri-flow.

    On multi-day drips I have soap with me anyway. Serves as lubricant if needs be.

    its not about choice, its about using the right product to do the job....

    WD40 is a water dispersant agent, that is what the 'WD' means and the 40 was the inventor's 40th formula. it is not a cure all, a fish bait and it is by no means lubricate! spit would be a better lubricant.

    Nowhere do I mention what I plan to use the WD40 for, so probably time to keep the unsolicited advice to yourself.
    Happy New Year.

    nick, why so sensitive? obvisiously you've naïve like most people as to what wd40 does and doesn't do. it's probably not your fault it's what you were taught. so here I am telling you a truth and you get defensive. that's you're prerogative, but there are thousands of other readers here that are willing to learn something new today and it is those others that I'm directing my 'unsolicited advice' to.

    and here's another truism about posting on a public forum. by doing so you put yourself in a position to be scrutinized, if you're too sensitive for that then don't post, but otherwise expect to be opposed once in a while.

    about me offering 'unsolicited advice'....since you were not the original poster of this tread and he didn't ask for your advice then your list of tools was also 'unsolicited advice'.

    get the idea?

    "get the idea?"
    I've found WD quite useful, with some obvious limitations and I like to have some along as well. Great tire install lube, switch cleaner, frees up locks, cleaner, dryer, etc. Has its uses. Can't imagine telling some else to take it out of their kit, eh?

    ^ but that's the point....it does all of these and many more....poorly. of everything you listed above the only thing it does with any decency is dry. so if you're trying to start a poorly maintained electrical system after dumping it in a river then you should have some wd40. on the other hand if you had stayed on top of the electrics with contact cleaner and dielectric grease then no drying necessary.

    wd40 is the biggest hype product out there and anyone that staunchly defends it is someone who has never tried something else because....well because they have always used wd40.
