My FIRST thought! I actually dig the seat, makes you feel like a fanfaire should play at every light announcing your presence.

Well actually, Mike told me that judging by the condition of all the parts, they probably wont be needed, and if he were to find one or all out of spec he was going to call me and let me make the decision...
But obviously if they're bad, I have no choice

I can't envision doing all that work without replacing the guides, they may be in spec now...but for how long?

Great point, i've always thought in terms of: "shit, while you're in there, might as well replace it." And I don't know why I didn't act on this specifically.... There's just so much other stuff I have to do for this thing (bike), my head is in a million places at once.... I thought I would just replace them if it was suggested to me by Mike (engine builder).



Ahhhh, I need a beer....

Update:

Picked up my newly refurbished parts from Mike today at Engine Dynamics. They look sweeeettt!

No new guides however, Mike said they were hardly worn and were within their original tolerances, so I simply swiped my card and walked out to the car with me parts.


All ready to be unpacked










Sittin pretty




I did also get a couple special tools in the mail from cycleworks... For the work I need to get done to the Transmission and Final Drive




And here's how she looks at the moment
