Everyone should check this! Thanks, Frostbite!

The next time you have your carburetor off your bike, check the slide plate for cracks. I was lucky and caught mine before it broke off and did expensive damage to the motor.
This is another example of how this website keeps the average rider on his bike. I have been able to do several repairs myself from the advice here. I would not be able to afford to ride if I had to take my bike to a mechanic every time something went wrong.
Thanks to Frostbite, and to all you gearheads that share your knowledge with the rest of us.

congrats on being able to save a heap of $$
TT must be responsible for so many hi performance 4 stroke mechanics not being able to charge $50 an hour to replace a plug and tell you it was a whole lot more.
I reckon i've saved about a grand so far in tiny niggly little things let alone the things i've avoided through research here.
No one should own a hi - po 4 stroke without reading all they can here first.
long live collective intelligence.
p.s havent heard from frostbite for a while, snow must have melted and its too hot for him to go outside. reckon he'd dehydrate at over 10 celcius.
Kevin on your advice i have searched to find the slide plate number to get a quote and to replace mine when i do my job, but i am unable to determine what the part number is, due mainly to not being able to identify the part.
is it the square thing with the little wheels on the side and a big hole in the middle of it? and do you have a part number? my genuine lack of knowledge is now evident.
