Yea the MP tools are the ones that are bending. The rear has to go to 94 which is high but the Cruz is steel and should be fine.I wish they provided a maximum torque rating and dimensions. I doubt either will be a problem since they're steel, and still pretty light looking: http://www.cruztools.com/wheelaxle.html
Motion Pro tools aren't cheap, but I like their detailed spec sheets, instructions, and videos.
When is your suspension due back? I hope you get a quick turnaround since this is prime riding weather. One of my friends has a Hawk (yeah, I know) and is itching to get some rides in with me. I told him I probably should have insurance & a helmet first. DMV has issued an amnesty since they're C19ed up, so I'll carry a copy of the title & bill of sale with me for now.
I may do that, too. Otoh, I know I'll be taking long rides on gravel far from home or truck, so it'd be nice to do a proper repair instead of limping 50 miles.I just carry some long zip ties with me. Works great at keeping the tire on the rim if you get a flat. You can limp out. Also have heavy duty tubes.
I picked up the Works Connection EZ drain kit to use tomorrow. The previous owner changed the oil at 250 miles, and I figure it's due for another at 660 miles. There's a busy Amsoil dealer nearby, so I may go that route for oil & Wix filters if his prices aren't crazy.You can change the oil in 10-15 minutes, even less if you forgo the oil filter and change it every other OCI. I don't recommend that, but some do it. Oil filters are $7/ea, oil filter o-ring is $3/ea, drain plug o-ring is $2/ea. Honda GN4 10W-30 is $6/qt, buy six quarts and you can do the first five OCI's. Some replace the o-rings every other OCI, but I replace mine every OCI, an extra $5 every 1,000-ish miles isn't going to break me lol. So at retail prices you can do a complete OCI with new oil, filter and o-rings in under 15 minutes for less than $20.
Thanks. That's probably the way I'll go, with a second MIPS helmet for road use.I love my Bell, very good helmets. I also have a Klim Krios for more dual sport, ADV, street use.
