Put on a HM Quick shiftier on my 2010. I had my buddy do the install. I bought the quick shiftier used from my brother for $350 CAN. Rode it for the first time this morning. It works amazingly well!

 :great: If it were me, I'd also install the MC Enterprises' Canyon Cages. They server their purpose well and look sharp + you can add highway pegs to them. Hey, wait ... I did just that (i.e., took my own advise)

Cliff, do you do your own tires?      I remove my rims and take them to a shop to have them put the tires on the rims.   I order the tires online.

Do to the crank  breaking in my daily driver I have been riding in the rain and she is a dirty girl. Today she gets a bath and I got new boots (Forma Adventure lows) the to box is a little thicker than what I was riding in before so I will also adjust the shifter lever to compensate.

Yes Sir hard pill to swallow, it's going to require I refinance the truck that is oh so close to being paid off. You know the truck isn't stock, going to be about a $15,000 dollar replacement long block.
The good thing is the long block I am looking at is guaranteed 5 years up to 1,000 hp. The truck had put down 650 hp 1200 flbs to the rear wheels so it was about 800 hp at the crank.

It's amazing what you can do to a Duramax, it's addictive. LOL
When I first got the truck the wife deemed it my penis enlargement, after the addiction started and about 12 grand into modifications she nicknamed it the mistress.... It weighs in at 7,800 lbs and runs 12.88 @ 104 mph I am no wear near the fastest either there now a few 1,000 +  hp trucks running the streets around here.

 I finally got off my butt and installed ZX-14 headers, Muzzy Mufflers, and valve today.
      Still have some fabricating to do, but I'll get it all worked out..

changed the clutch fluid and put in the new spring, seal and spacer seal for the clutch slave cylinder. Used the Mighty Vac I bought to help this along, as I hear things are a bitch of a bitch if done any other way.

My clutch wasn't engaging until the lever was near the bar, but it would work great when the bike was heated up.

I'd say it needed cleaned. It's an 08, and who the hell know how the previous owner(s) took care of it? The dealer I bought it from last year did bleed the and refill the system as the fluid was barely yellow, and they said they do for all fluids. The clutch was fine last year, but it's been an extremely cold winter. So, I don't mind doing this.
