. . . Any extra suggestions? . . .

Ah, yes.

The extra damper rod holes go above the existing ones, see:

And a ton of extra suggestions for other modifications here:

Concours C10 / ZG1000 General Chat and Tech / Another great find!
« Last post by Bud on Today at 01:09:14 pm »
My C10 had a bit of a rough life from the PO.  Missing piece at the turn signal as well as a Frankenstein scar from a bad plastic weld job between the mirror and windshield.  Both lower fairings had multiple problems.  The belly pan was skinned up too.  This year I have managed to find an acceptable upper fairing.  It was sonic blue, so I had it painted in the stock pearl luster beige color.  Last year I found both lower fairings that were brand new but had very slight damage that I would have to point out for someone to see.  $50 each shipped from a Kawasaki dealer.  So yesterday I scored a great deal on a brand new belly pan on ebay.  Had some back and forth communication with the seller about it being the proper color for an 05.  It was listed as black, but after having them look closely, I THINK it's for an 05.  $70 shipped!!  Woo hoo!  Finding any bodywork for a C10, that is new, for me, is pretty difficult.  Can't wait to see it.  Keeping my fingers crossed!

Well Tom. You are neither a doctor nor a trained mid-wife; even your ability to boil water and/or carry towels is somewhat suspect. You would (mostly) just be in the way.  :rotflmao: ;)

Tom also brews up some decent beers, as do you. So there is that.  :beerchug: :beerchug:

Accessories C14 / Re: OH NO!! Another oil filter thread
« Last post by MtnRider on Today at 03:03:39 am »
The guy in the video make some reasonable points, but... I think he knew which filters he liked the best, and then found what he was looking for.
His points about the Fram filter make sense. Why would they be able to stay in business so long if they had problems?
Marketing, and...Treat warranty as simply a cost of making parts in which you save money on the parts... and marketing. That 1 in several thousand filters that causes the engine to blow... is the owner going to be savvy enough to know it was the filter's fault? then file a formal complaint?  maybe.  and marketing, oh, and also marketing :truce:
Having spent a number of years in the aftermarket portion of Delphi, I can tell you that many parts that claim to be "equal to OE" are FAR from it; the ones that claim to be "better than OE" are no better. They count on you not keeping the car very long (Rich, you and I, and many in COG  are exceptions). Did you keep that receipt for the oil filter? no, sorry, can't talk to you.  Did you install the filter correctly? can you prove it?
Then come the stamped springs instead of "real" springs. Rich will probably agree that a stamped spring will work in the oil filter just as well as a "real" coil spring. The stamped spring is probably easier to assemble properly, so less chance of an error, plus probably lower cost.
The filter media not being as long?   Dude, stretch the pleats the same amount, then let's compare. Maybe same result, but let's keep the playing field level.
I also will not buy a Fram filter, but I have bought many Purolator filters.
For the Cat engine in the Beast, our old RV, Cat filters - too much to lose there to take a chance.
For bikes?  K&N for ease in removing with the built-in nut.
For the 2001 truck with 225,000 miles, probably K&N for same reason.
For the 2007 creampuff Accord we bought a few of months ago?  Take it to the Honda dealer; it's too much of a pain to change myself - LOL

Good discussion, even if it is an oil filter thread  :-X

Along the "fun thread" theme.

Even if one filter is "bad". How much actual damage will be done?!? Even if a filter allows some particles thru will it cause a catastrophic failure before the next oil and filter change? If not, there won't be any indication to the vehicle owner that there was a filter issue. With current engine technology there's probably a lot of room for for some filter variability in effectiveness.   :great: :beerchug:
