  1. Looking forward to seeing the final product.
  2. How about some bungie tabs. They have been extremely useful on my SM.
  3. +1 on the radiused handholds and bungie tabs facing down all along the perimeter. If so, I would be interested.
  4. Listen, If anyone living in the San Francisco Bay Area wants Eddie to do their fork suspension and needs a Gun case to ship them in, I can lend you mine. PM me and we can get together. Erik
  5. Well, I couldn't really care less about "upping" my "thread count" so your rude reply doesn't really bother me. If you really are serious then why don't you just call the Man and ask him. You have hundreds of reviews of Eddie's work on this forum and nobody minds giving "reviews of a business". I was just replying to what I have noticed is online etiquette. If you have spent time on this forum, even though you only have 33 posts, you will notice that most of the time when asked for a price, Eddie says to call him. I respect these things and I was just pointing that out. And why should you surfj9009 take offense at what I post in my thread about what someone else writes? Seriously dude, Chill. By the way, Eddie is or was a Racetech certified Technician. If that helps. Call him, He's a great guy.
  6. I don't believe it is kosher to say what kind of deal you got. Better to leave to the man.
  7. WOW:banana: WOW:banana: WOW:banana: Resprung and revalved by Eddie for my weight and riding style. Fantastic price and shortest ever heard of turn around time. Shipping the forks from Calif. was only $37.00 and Shock $16.00 Worth every penny to have it shipped to Eddie to do it. If you are considering doing it , don't hesitate. I can't believe how well it handles. Now I can work at getting my skill level up to the equipment.
  8. Got one too but have yet to install it. Just had Eddie do my suspension so I'm putting it together. Can wait to see how she handles. E
  9. Thanks for the support. That's what I love about this forum. I like pooling experiences and ideas. I'll get some pics up which showed how I did it.
  10. :lol: It took all of 35 minutes to make. :lol::lol:
  11. Manual says the steering stem nut (it's not really a "castle nut") gets an initial 32.5 lb-ft. before backing it of 1/4 to 1/2 turn. I like to be accurate if I can. Then the steering stem head nut gets 65 lb-ft. You are probably right but I like working with my hands. Peanut grinder is just a 4" portable grinder. STEERING STEM • Tighten the steering stem nut to the specified torque using the special tools . • tool 09940-14911: Steering nut socket wrench 09940-14960: Steering nut wrench socket ~ Steering stem nut: 45 N·m (4.5 kgf-m, 32.5 Ib-ft)
  12. Rather than pay the $50.00+ high price of the OEM steering stem nut wrench, I fabricated one using a $10.99 deep impact socket and a peanut grinder. Results below and I've done it before for my old Hayabusa and it can handle the torque, in case you were wondering. Erik
