    All back together, well a bit of polishing on the LH covers then on and ready to ride. Went with the bronze bushings. Used the german bushings found on fleabay.

    were snug drive in fit with an aluminum plate "flange protector" and a 16oz hammer. There had been 3 shims total in the swing arm caps. ended up removing all of them for the correct swing arm "drop".

    ...on another thread, we learned that Wisconsin...ers(?) use the term FIB when referring to their good friends in neighbouring Illinois - and that stands for F@cking Illinois B@stards.

    It is good to know that Canada isn’t the only nation riven by regional and sub-national jurisdiction rivalries and snarkiness. Back in the 1970s, a federal policy on splitting up oil industry royalties prompted an Alberta politician to say: “ Let the eastern b@stards freeze in the dark”.

    We didn’t mind because they were just a bunch of blue-eyed Arabs anyway....;)
