for the price of the parts, it is good insurance.

You DO NOT need the left side case, Just the bushing. I didn't even take the left side cover off, just tapped the bushing in with a piece of brass making sure its going in straight. Its cheap insurance but even more Peace of mind. I've done all the free mods and jd kit and the bike screamed on my 100 mile trip Friday.

I have done nothing to the flywheel/woodruff key. I have never had a problem. I doubt if I have the punch mark, I've never looked. Since I had the first one I doubt that the flywheel/woodruff key problem was even addressed. It has never been back to the dealer.

You can get all the parts needed at www.zanottimotor.com for $175 shipped. I just did the upgrade last week simply for piece of mind even though I have never had a problem at 4000 miles. $175 is cheap for piece of mind.
