So... Along with certain levels of precision, sometimes one has to use what you have to get the job done... In this case, I have ALL of the wrong parts, and in an effort to make them work, this is the solution, albeit slightly modified from this picture. I believe this could be in Wikipedia next to the term "bastardization". Anyone else use some ingenuity/beer engineering sometimes? Do tell! image-2990751870.jpg No, my runners aren't that long. I cut the tube to 1" with the bump in the middle, it allows the two dissimilar sets of boots to fit closely and at a slight angle to make up for some port spacing differences and keep my tb's out of my frame. I'll update once they are mounted.

All I know is, if a big hammer won't fix it............then it's probably an electrical problem.

Bikemaster blahblablbah10s for the 9er has these stupid bits of plastic under the terminals, which causes the battery nuts to fall at a silly angle. Cut a cigatte butt in half and wedged it between the plastic bullshit, the sides of the terminal, and the nut. I could turn the battery sideways and the nut wouldn't move, yet the screwbolt (wtf are they if they have both the hex and the phillips cut?) is able to fully seat.

if you love your motorcycle, set it free.. if it comes back and hits you.. you highsided

Clever! I have struggled with those damn battery terminals many times...

The DeWalt end-mill. If I had an hour-meter on it for this project, I'm sure it would have paid for itself at minimum wage on this project alone.
