Sweet! That might even be more detailed than I would do 😉. It'll be good to see what you think of them. Especially given those months psa.

This came, too, though it's not really for the XJ. Sweet couple bags of bolts, though. M6 and M8 flange-head with a nice OE looking plating. These will be used on the Honda, the Isuzu, and wherever else I need an M6 or M8 flanged bolt. Best part is - $12 for both bags. Seriously, here, I'm excited about these!

Nice bolts! Which is better than saying "nice nuts." I mean you're a cool guy and all, but... :o :lolno:

Heh.

I don't know where you ordered from, but if you haven't tried Fastenal, it's a great source for bulk ordering hardware.



Okay I'm breaking the rules, enough chit-chat. :) I've a box at home I'll try to snap pics of, soon...

New box!

This is my hearty endorsement for the Gerber Dime multi-tool. It's tiny and does everything I need. The little pair of tweezers even work quite well at extracting cactus spines or tweezing your eyebrows.

New crash bars!!

They're in pretty excellent shape for the very low price I paid.

Those do look to be in great shape. You got a helluva good deal. Are you going to paint them or leave them as is (so that you don't worry the first time we drop these bikes)?

They're going to go on as is right now. When I finally get around to refurbishing the exhaust, touching up the frame, and repainting the engine, I'll just do it all at once.

I got a box I've been waiting for:

Image

You might already be able to guess what it is:

Image

A set of JIS screwdrivers! Sizes #1, #2, and #3 should give me access to every screw on this bike that the PO didn't strip already. I got the model with the teeth on the end for extra grip.

These were ordered from http://www.rjrcooltools.com where the total came out to a little under 50 USD with shipping, and they threw in a set of drill bits for free. This actually was a little cheaper than ordering directly from Vessel which was my original plan. The price on the drivers is cheaper though Vessel, but they charge like 30 dollars shipping so it isn't worth it. Plus I only had to wait a few days for these instead of a few weeks from Japan. Can't wait to get into the carbs with these :D

Hmm, is two months soon enough? :lolno:

Here's a nice box I got around Christmas time... then finally opened about six weeks ago.

Whatever can it be? :ponder: ;)

BAM!

I really can't decide if I like the baffles in or out. Out's nice of course, but I think I like the tone better with them in. We'll see. No header pipes yet, those will come later.

What's the low end torque like with duel pipes Siper ?
I have the exact same end can but 4 into 1..... and I find that without the baffle ( DB killer ) you lose a bit of low end flexibility ( maybe not enough back pressure with a straight through pipe ? )
