When you say ratchet, what size of drive ratchet are you trying? You need to hit that with a 3/8ths drive air impact turned down to a low torque. It makes all the difference on those stubborn threads. I bet Madbuyer's right about the thread locker. Look for crusty white on the threads when you do get it out.
If air is out of the question, use a pipe cheater on your ratchet - carefully right I know you know. If you can give it a bit of a sharp effort, after it's had a chance to soak up some of that Pb shixit. I love that stuff, but it reeks!
air is the best option but if you don't have air available, i have held the ratchet with one hand and tapped the handle of the ratchet with a hammer using your other hand. with the PB stuff on there that should get it off. you should use a 6 point socket with this technique because the last thing you need is the nut to strip. good luck - hey jondog - that PB stuff smells great......
Has anyone tried these? Are they any good?
They appear to be a visual match for the SP2 mirrors, at least based on the pics I've seen, but obviously, if someone out there has experience with them I'd like to know what you thought.
I removed the tail, installed a pig-tail for a battery tender, and replaced the stock rear pegs with Sato Ti hangers.
I also Stomp-Gripped the tank...The generic sport bike Stomp-Grip cut is cheaper than the custom-cut ones, and if you install the R side upside down on the L side of the tank...
ok, This is going to be a long one, and i plan on it growing and updating often. I know i've spoken with a few of you and brought up my project SP1 and every now and then post some pictures of some parts i've come across.
Well i finally took some time and got some pics to start my Official SP1...
I was considering putting a sp2 fairing stay on my sp1 as they are a nicer looking setup,
Can anyone confirm they are interchangeable?
