    Would you consider this kit as manageable for someone to install in their average garage with average tools? I know Dave offers a service to install the kit for you, which is probably the route I would go.
    I wouldn't myself, but I've spent too many years as a machinist and look at stuff through that lens. I tend to get too tied up in the details. I also have a low skill level with a hand grinder and files.

    I will say that I wouldn't do the machine work on someone else's bike for what Dave charges, especially considering the risk of damaging a primary cover.

    I just happened to reread my response. The last line wasn't meant as a dig, my intention is to say you're getting a good deal if you have him do the work.

    I was picking up what you were putting down.

    I'm catching what you're throwing.

    I'm reading what you're writing.

    I'm smelling what you're cooking.

    I'm hitting what you're pitching.

    I'm cashing what you're checking.

    I'm rocking what you're rolling.

    I'm itching what you're scratching.


    ok, I'll stop.


    I do agree, its not cheap, but a small price for a job done right.

    If you have basic mech skills, a good angle die grinder and a dial caliper you should be fine. If you struggle with basic maintenance then you should pass on the repair.
