  1. I would be careful using a drill, usually I use something pointed and bend the first coil inward towards the center of the hole, then grab it with a pair of needle nose pliers and gently pull, it should stretch out kind of like stretching a spring, usually helicoil problems are from improper hole size before tapping. If the helicoil is "threading" the bolt then most likely the pitch is incorrect..ie.. the helicoil is a 1.25 pitch and the bolt is a 1.50 Hope this helps and good luck
  2. Sounds like an air leak..
  3. Mine is priceless...but if you got 8k..
  4. True and balance your wheels, it really helps a freeway speeds
  5. I finally got some time to make a speedo mount, I used a material called Acetal, it's a carbon based high performance plastic.. Mounted the front blinkers Next up will be mounting these bad boys

  11. From the looks of how clean that bike is, it's probably been pressure washed, keep an eye out for lower frame rust, I would drill a small hole between the right foot peg mounts, that's were the water gets trapped..and make sure the vent holes in the frame are kept clear.
