No Worries said:If you have a good manual, good tools, and can follow directions, you can do most everything the mechanic can do. Plus, you can take your time. The shop mechanic has to finish the job in a certain amount of time. If I have a problem that isn't explained well in the manual, I'll ask the shop foreman. He likes to shoot the breeze with gearheads.

Actually never put the advancer on... jetting was done years ago by a buddy of mine... WOW... you got me... but as I said 95% of it is done by me!!twisty said:Did you jet your bike or did the shop do it? Did you put the timing advancer on it or did the shop do it? :skep:

That makes my jet kit and forks!!! You can't do your own crash repair when under a insurance claim thru State Farm. And I've had my bike in twice for warrenty work.... again, can't do warrenty work yourself... DUH!!
WOW, that's alot :screwy: So back off buddy and go fix a GSXR!
He's right on that one... and that's why I'm done explaining...twisty said:Yeah we can, losts of history.... :hug:
