just curious. I was uncorking my 07 R today and took out the stock needle to find it only had 2 slots in it. it didn't matter because i was replacing it with a b53e. i almost didn't buy the comp needle though. i was just going to move the position of the clip on the stock needle. glad i didn't go that route. what gives? i've read about using the stocker and moving the clip position to the 3rd and 4th slots but i didn't have that option on my stock needle. did honda change the stock needles at some point? now...can anybody direct me to a good plastic surgeon to remove this permanent smile i'm wearing? the R rules!
