Hey as long as I don’t blow this truck up we will be fine. The bike is minor lol. Now to just get this damn cigarette smell out of the truck...

And Columbus I’ve got a yfz450x I’m usually on. Just got a bike for something different.

Headlights and tie rods will be on the way this weekend. Also gonna get my windows tinted full retard

Probably just gonna go with the XD rods again. Had good luck with them last time and with the warranty, hard to beat. Unless anyone has some for sale. Just don’t know if I wanna spend $300+ on rare parts or kryptonite.

I’ve had good luck on rare parts
Compared to the moog we run on the work trucks I’ve gotten twice the life so far so that’s worth it in my book (time doing it-picking up the parts-price of parts-realignment)
That was also 3 years ago now so maybe there’s some new ones out that I don’t know about?

Rare parts are still out there but dmaxstore has their brand xd rods for $100 cheaper. I had them in my lb7 and they were beefy.

For the price of sleeves and 2 new tie rods I can get the xd rods. These tie rods have about an inch of play. They’re pretty bad lol
