    graham's answer is "it's pulling in the loosening direction"

    every one else will say that the safety wire (and possibly spring hooks) could loosen all the bolts of the headers, as well as the 4 non-sired bolts, loosen all other exhaust bolts, and fly out through the belly pan and pull a "JFK magic bullet" somehow off the bike and hit a rider

    Not only is it pulling in the wrong dir on one bolt, on the other it's not pulling at all.

    Haha yes. I must rewire Sunday. Clips not LRRS legal? Ahhhh good to know this now!

    Confused on the springs of the exhaust. So with the header but being drilled and wired I should wire the springs?

    Huh, I definitely have at least one of those clips on my bike. For the castle nut on my rear axle.

    Clip on the rear axle nut is fine. The oil fill cap and dip stick should be fine too.

    Clip is good on the radiator cap, too. Just can't use them on the oil drain anymore.

    I wouldn't bother drilling a hole for wet racing, either. The water comes out when you lean.

    what a weekend for my back.
    • removed Yosh exhaust
    • installed EKC exhaust (after drilling out flanges a but more)
    • installed shock
    • installed damper
    • installed forks
    • flushed coolant
    • filled radiator with water
    • changed oil and filter
    • installed new front master cylinder
    • aligned rear wheel for NHMS gearing
    • flushed out old brake fluid with new stuff
    • installed my old bodywork



    it's ugly, but it's ready now.
    just need to buy tires and gas.
    safety wired everything humanly possible for LRRS rules

    Yup, full panic mode. I drastically underestimated the amount of prep work my tail would need just to get ready for paint. Between that, cold temperatures, normal pre-season maintenance, selling a vehicle and buying another, I'm thinking about plasti-dipping the whole tail yellow and then peeling it off and doing it right after round 1.

    rewired what i messed up wiring in the first place - drained, flushed and refilled coolant with distilled water/water wetter, reinstalled some bodywork and now waiting for some decals.

    still need to coordinate with my other two friends, charge all the electronics, pack all the gear, load all the bikes - oh look it might snow - yay.

    You can layer paint on top of paint. AMHIK.
    Your goal should be to make your body work weigh almost as much as the bike.

    I might just go for a cool custom look. I'm thinking an "urban decay" theme, with layers of feathered paint, bare fiberglass, and eye-catching pink filler.

    Yeah i got a garage, good to go.

    Just need new tires and some gas.

    I hear we buy gas at the pumps at the track now? So I can just use a credit card and bring my jug over, ya?

    How small? I have one of Grip 9 pc Roll Pin Punch Set - Hand Tool Pin Punches - Amazon.com that I could throw in my box if it helps.
