Careful putting that strainer back in! I read some where else in here a couple people have stripped the threads. The manual calls for 65 ft/lbs. Seems a bit high to me.

It does seem pretty tight to me also. When installing it I kept checking torque setting to make sure I wasn't over tightening it.I was getting very nervous. :)

Did you find any thing in the strainer. My 426 never had anything, and I'v not checked my 450 yet.

Just a few small particles but only rode once for 30 miles. I will change again after 30-50 miles.

Hey Motorod,

In your pictures (Bare 2)

all your junction blocks are neatly in a row. Does yours come with a mount to do this standard?

Looks very clean and tidy !!!

My 450 is a dogs breakfast under the headlight .....

That is what it looked like when I took the light off. I had not modified anything at that time. :)

That dog thinks we go to the races so poeple will pet her. :) She usually sleeps the whole way back and then through the night, after we get home, because she wore out from the pettings she gets. Every time I get the trailer out to load up, she lines up at the truck, so she won't get left out of the trip. :D
