With the Triton, ensure all the faces are flat and pay special attention to the bolt holes, these tend to pull up a bit.

Both in one bag. Took off the indicators and top and tailed them. Bit fiddly but it was the biggest bag they made.

Used them several times and always been good. Managed to get a Z1000 and a Commando in the extra large bag a few years ago.

Used the Eazy Rizer for quite a few bikes over the years. Very good tool.
I have 3 types of fittings for it.
Could be for sale as it has not been used for a long time

I have a full Dyna system on my 500 and have no issues with low battery. Longest run was about 120 miles last year.
Hope the info helps

Very good work as usual. Had a few sets done by them.
Dropped off the last set and picked them up in person. Took at least 40 minutes to get away as I was chatting to the manager about bikes. He is really into his bikes.

Sprinta, did you fit a standard A10 first gear set or the A65 version? Both obviously lower than the RR box. Not been out on mine yet, so wondered what the RR first gear was like to ride on

Sounds like zinc or cad plate. I got a load of bits done at a local zinc plater and he just popped all the bits in a basket. A week later, they were all done. I asked for bright zinc, but it can be done with many different finishes.
Cadmium is poisonous and you are not recommended to suck on plated bolts  ;D. Believe it is also absorbed through the skin, so doubly dangerous

Good luck with the repair, At least you know its possible.
Had similar with a K1 750, working on the motor and found a load of epoxy resin around the front of the sprocket. Damage where the chain had popped in for a visit. I was very fortunate as a mate had a bit of Kawasaki case that could be made to fit and had it welded up by an FIA approved aircraft welded. Only cost me a case of beer too.
