Let me of a good time for you (not this weekend). I can bring a case of cold beer and don't mind paying a few bucks for your time. I want to learn this thing. Motorcycle is my hobby so I like to do things myself (correctly).

If memory serves me ninja 250s are threaded adjustors, and they are easier than shim under bucket
