I know I've gotten the pig tail from GM before but I think you can get it aftermarket now. Napa has it in the Echlin line, part number ECH EC397.

Look up the torque spec for the hub nut on the end of the CV shaft. If you over or under tighten it you will be replacing the bearing again.

Which way is the speedometer off? I almost ordered a set of those Renthal Ultra Lows last night. I figure I should at least ride the bike first though, see what I don't like about the stock bars.

Alpinestars VS JoeRocket- Sizing

I have pretty much all the stock parts. I was thinking somewhere around that price. I figured I would ask the inmates and get a realistic price rather than just trust KBB or something of that sort.

At this point in time I'm not considering cost. Ultimately I will. I think the big appeal of VFR is that it's so different than most bikes, but I guess the 919 is too.

You can still find some new 919 on ebay too. I really like the old standard styling on the 919. I'm just short of 26 but I don't want a bike that's going to slowly cripple me either.
