HD seem to be going the same way as the British bike industry of the 60's & 70's.

They seemed to have buried their heads and hoped the competition would simply disappear...lack of forward thinking will be their downfall IMHO

Cheers Stig, that would be ideal. Please do. How many different sizes and shapes are there??? That's a bummer 97YZF, but understandable. It adds a lot to the cost and grief too, but for the buyer I thought, not the seller (unless someone refused to pay it and they got sent back etc)... John The siz...

Can you get a pair of mole clamps on the outside of the nut? If so, use them along with the allen key to give extra leverage.

If you're going to tap it, be very careful how much force you give it...don't want to crack the castings

Mine cost me about $20 to paint as I already had most of the materials such as topcoat, thinners and primer. So far I've done 3 sets of wheels and I've used about half a litre of paint
