    Eagerly awaiting the Black Friday codes to start ordering parts.
    Saw MeanCycles had a 5% code (TURKEY). The discount isn't huge and even after discount parts "seem" to be cheaper at www.oneidasuzuki.com

    Pricing is as follows;

    MC- $427.50 USD ($567.80 CAD) after discount. (REVO kit includes more plates than buying individually- NO GASKET)
    **With gasket and discount $450 USD (597.69 CAD)

    1S- $394.19 USD. ($523.56 CAD) Includes only parts listed above plus gasket.

    Yes, its not an apples to apples comparison. Based on this the One Suzuki setup is around $73.56 USD ($97.70 CAD) cheaper but is not a complete swap. My understanding is I'd have to reuse a few items.

    Part of me thinks the extra money would be well spent to have a completely new clutch (REVO Kit) that can be installed with no issue. The cheapskate part of me thinks go the One Suzuki direction....

    decisions, decisions....

    Due to the exchange rate and only a 5% discount at MeanCycles, I'm likely going to pass on the EVO Shift star kit. Might get this at a later date.

    Make sure you are comparing prices with shipping included as well.
    Both Meancycles and Oneida are great places to get parts but sometimes Onieda's shipping prices can be on the high side......just something to be aware of.

    Thank you for this. Luckily the order would be over MC's free ship amount so all in I feel they would be the better choice.
    I'll need to go a bit further with the checkout at Onieda to get an exact comparison.

    My sister is flying home with the parts at Christmas as she lives in Houston now. Us Canadian's need to be creative when it comes to shipping as International shipping along with duty/taxes can really hurt the wallet.
    Taking a 30% hit on the dollar is bad enough...

    I'd be ordering from MeanCycles so fingers crossed its in stock. Did send a parts request email to confirm.

    And MeanCycles for the win.

    After discount and shipping factored in, MeanCycles price on the Revo Clutch kit and Gasket was $9 cheaper than the smaller parts list from OneideaSuzuki. (Oneidea's shipping prices were ridiculous)

    Now I'll wait for my sister to fly home on Dec 23.

    **Apologies, I cant seem to figure out why the site rotates photos?


    Next week I'm going to try and tackle the "Pin Mod" so I'm ready for my parts. Thankfully I've got about a week off at Christmas so I'd like to get this all installed while I'm off.

    Really hoping this is going to fix my shifting issues.....

    more to come.

    Happy New Year folks. Hope everyone had a great holiday break. We had a sick kid this year for Christmas so didn't get much time in the garage between that and other family.

    Good news is I got my parts via my sister flying home with no tax/duty and baggage charges. And MeanCycles hooked me up with some great stickers for the beer fridge.

    Still a few things to handle before I start the install.
    - Push Pin Mod- need 3, 2mm wide flat spots ground in the pin.
    - Want to find/rent the Honda tool to confirm the tubular nut is tight. (will add lock-tite)

    Going to hit the local Honda dealer after work to buy discount tickets for the annual motorcycle show next weekend and will ask about getting the tool.
    My brother works at an HVAC contractor and we are going to try and grind the pin in his shop. A bit nervous about this but should be straight forward.

    Will get pics tonight. More to come....

    I have changed out the front motor mounts for the harder OEM ones years ago. After checking my maintenance log, I've put about 20,000 km on those since install. Good chance I should just change all 6 to the new poly ones but that might be a mod for next year. If I cant figure out this clutch thing I'll have to try this.
    I have over 36,000 miles on my 06, never changed any of the motor mounts. Have zero issues with the transmission or shifting. The occasional shudder, but it's so rare I just deal with it IF it happens. Once or twice a year when the bike is cold. If it does it, it's only once. I'm not tearing into it at this point, I can deal with it.

    Right on, seems like you've been lucky with that thing.

    Yeah, guess so. It's also the reason I still have it, haven't had anything so bad happen that I feel the need to ditch it. Compared to my B-King, it doesn't vibrate at all. My King puts my hands to sleep within 10 miles. I wonder if a change of hand grips would help, the stock ones are pretty darn hard. Just changing gloves can get me another 10 miles. But that's thick winter gloves, too much for the summer.

    And winter is in full swing. Extreme Cold Warning in Calgary for the last few days and coming week.

    Not a lot going on in the garage until things warm up.

    -38C today. Sure could use a bigger garage heater....
    My garage is fully insulated and dry walled so its not bad being attached to the house. The wife's car adds some heat when she parks in it for the night. My little electric Walmart heater takes the edge off.

    Wont be riding for a while so I'll likely just wait it out. Should be a balmy -9C on Sunday....
