I thought that was weird too that all of a sudden they change up whats in the box now. I guess the neighbors are just going to have to get used to my early morning outings.

Some of you may recall me mentioning I had a chaffing problem.
Not me personally.. the front brake lines were chaffing my front fork tube (and really making a mess!). I ended up building a "zip tie stack" to protect the tube until I could figure out a good solution.

problem solved..
e-line carbon tubes will protect/cover the chaffing and a goodridge steel braided line so I can get rid of the old warped brake line:



Once I have all that crap installed.. the only thing left on the bike that is "bugging me" is the state of all of my vent tubing. Its all split/cracked/broken etc... so I need to delve in and re-plumb the bike. Since I could get the tube in any color.. why not bling it up a little. It'll go with that anodized blue vent filter eh?

You be letting us know how those tube protectors fit the 48's. After looking for those when you inquired I might wants to get me some.

I went and washed the bike and put them on tonight.
They fit perfectly.

They are exactly the right length. They "press fit" as you open them up and then they "snap" on as they close. There is probably a 1/2" gap in the back (that's how they are designed to be).

I was thinking I was going to put double sided tape on them or something to hold them in place but its not needed... they "self clamp" pretty darn snug on to the tube.

Exhaust options???

Been looking around for a slip on and finding... well... not much. Looks like Leo Vince, Motosports (Barrett) and Uptite (which I can't find) are it. Anything else??? Who sells the Uptite???

Here's some info on the Uptite exhaust. You have to call George at Uptite. He does COD--no web site. The phone number is 714-540-2920. There is another link here, which also has some YouTube links.

I'd go with the tape, otherwise they may slide around and wear the finish off your forks, especially after you get dust and grit behind them. Let's see come pics when you can.

I haven't used them, so I'll take your word for it. How has the finish on your forks held up underneath?

Keys for balancer

Does anybody know the size of the keys that shear on the balance shaft and can they be purchased locally? Or are they some weird metric woodruff key that is dealer only? Just curious as I was going to get some spares.
Thanks,
Grump

mrk: i thought that two.. but when you put 'em on they "SNAP!" on almost vicegrip like. It takes a pretty good effort just to try and move them yourself.

I'll post pics next week.. I'll be tearing the bike down to install the Lynx, etc..
