Nothing against Moose Racing but DO NOT buy the Moose Racing Easy Clutch. I bought one for my overly stiff clutch and it did nothing to ease the clutch pull. Wasted money. What helped was a new clutch cable and to have the clutch adjusted by a professional. He also recommended going back to the original four finger clutch lever that the PO had removed.

P.S. This is one of the most valuable topics I think I've ever read. Thank you for having it. I'm sure a lot of us are saving money by learning what not to buy.

Can you help me out...how is this a bad thing?

Not being a dork...sometimes the obvious eludes me.

Yes I too would be interested in knowing how it was concluded this is a detrimental feature. As long as the filter spring can compress and the filter can go into bypass this should be non-issue.

I mounted my case armor over top of the Suzuki oil filter cover...as per the instructions that came with it!

Great board!!! I can say my two biggest regrets are the peg lowering kit and the supertrapp ids2. Both are good quality products but just didn't work out as expected.

On the flip side, one farkle that I thought I would regret but have loved them are PM Rack's side racks. Great price, good people and a lifetime warranty. And they look great! :BevButt:

oddflow, just wondering about your peg-lowering remorse. For me and others to learn from your experience, can you explain a bit more-- how tall are you, what bars are you using, how much lowering did you do, and what aspect of the end result are you not happy with?

So i am 5'10" and the kit that I got lowered the pegs as well as moved them to the rear. I was running both the stock bars then a set of protapers (can't remember which bend). I think the main thing that I disliked was the rearward movement. In the near future I will try a a set from JNS that will just lower. I hope this helps and below is a picture of the setup I had.

thanks odd! thats helpful. Peg-lowering and rear-ward moving is a funny deal, you can try to imagine how a new setup will be but to actually do it requires kind of a big investment in money and time... so it is great to hear about other peoples experience. I'm 6' and debated about options for awhile; now have a low/rear set from Wirtz Wire sitting on my workbench waiting to install...

Those brackets not only lower your pegs, they lower your ground clearance. They should be melted down and reused for a better purpose

No, you don't understand. This is a protective plate that went over the factory oil filter cover. It is a thick CNC billet machining round plate that does not conform to the contour of the factory oil filter cover with a rather hoaky fit, poorly designed which actually make it more vulnerable with greater exposure getting hit in a crash.

I would be more then willing to sell it to either one of you for much cheaper then you could buy it for and it's never been used. $20 and it's yours :biggrin:
