    Do you actually like those shifter saver boots? I had one on my KLR650 and I cut it off after a week.

    One fork tube is leaking. So going to order a rebuild kit.plus something to measure the oil height in forks. Need chain and sprockets. I can finish assembly and take forks off anytime.

    Get the Motion Pro one. It might look like a giant meth needle, but you can set the measurement on it.

    Im a tool junkie. For 15 bucks it's a no brainer. Beats measuring and adding and pouring some out to get the correct level.was even going to get the fork bullit
    Instead of using tape. Already have the brass bullit to do the rear shocks
