I just want to make it very clear that my posts are not the "Do it my way or it's wrong" type of posts. These are just things that I do or have done in the process of working on these bikes (the one about the kicker is an example). I'm just hoping that some of these will be useful - if we can prevent someone from damaging a part, or make his work easier or less frustrating as he works on his triple, then we've been successful. I don't want anybody thinking I "just came up" with these ('cause I don't work THAT fast). A lot of them were sent out by PM to individuals who had inquired over the last few years.
