On a slightly different note: when I placed my order a few days ago, the standard turnaround time was stated as 2-8 weeks PLUS possible additional delays due to Covid. Got an email this morning that it has shipped!  :cheerleader: :whoop: :celebrate:

Personally, I make allowances for Ducatis because of the desmodromic actuation. And they're Ducatis.  :love:

Vibrations can help, too. I've heard of an automotive product that vibrates the brake line to encourage bubbles to migrate upwards. Maybe an electric engraving tool or something from a lady's bedside table temporarily applied to the brake line would work. Seriously.

I was looking for clever solutions and ideas:





I love these fender supports, but the hose clamps are bringing the property values down





Smallest license plate light I've seen



Throttle cable didn't line up? No problem



Yes, the chain really actuates the rear brake



Steering stops: thinking outside the box

On that note, I had to buy a bag of 10 inserts for a recent repair, 8mm but I don’t remember what pitch. I’d look, but I’ In Portland at the One Moto show! If they’re right for you I’ll send a couple...what size do you need?
