Okay, say I do decide to go with the index idea where I put an index mark on the crankshaft and align the rotor while torquing it down....

How accurate do I have to get the rotor?

According to my calculations, a 1 degree angle at 1000 rpm results in 0.046 seconds of delay (or premature) from where it should be correctly aligned. Doesn't seem like very much, but is that enough to cause issues?

Unless you're looking to address some sort of discrete, performance-mod timing goal, I'd suggest doing your damndest to match the correct factory timing.

It does have to be rather exact, yes.

Best thing to do- discern where the woodruff key is, and mark this with a sharpy on the face of the crank,

Absolutely. Just concerned about human error.

A question for you guys running a LV X3..... I've read that you need to trim the fender but this much?













Hard to tell from the pics but looks like I need to remove over an inch from the right side. Is this correct?

You might think about pushing the Leo further onto the header pipe. Mine fit perfect after I did that with no trimming.

I find it almost inconceivable that you can't get the woodruff key out. I'd love to hear what you did.

I'm wanting to fill my stock bars with something to help insulate them so my heated grips actually heat my hands.
What should I use? Thanks

Thanks, I'll try that. I need to get the airbox back in and see how far forward I can go.

You can use expanding foam insulation and a long application tube. Another option would be to fill the bars with lead or steal shot, and cap that with foam. The shot will help dampen the vibes.

I feel the same way. A Dremel with a cutting wheel would precisely cut or even grind it away if necessary. Make sure you wear glasses when using those cutting wheels, they like to shatter but a guarantee you can get it out with them...
