Rant: Aftermarket parts instructions.
Is it just me, or do the instructions that come with most aftermarket parts really suck!?? I just installed Gilles rearsets on my '05 GIXXER 1K last night. The instructions basically say "remove old parts, install new parts". Most have black & white photos that look like they were sent through a 20 year old fax and then copied. Luckily, I've installed several sets of rearsets before, so it wasn't too confusing. I've had to back off and take deep breaths (and a couple of beers) many times in the past to avoid just bulling in and breaking something when I get frustrated. Do any of you feel the same way? It's like they assume you are a bike mechanic!
