Do you think its a good tool to have for my bike? because I found this...

http://www.ebay.com/itm/9-99-SAVE-71...item2c6d075cdf

and I can buy that and basically get a torque wrench for 10.99, it says I can choose any of the 3

But I dont mind saving $10 and bothering jimmy again )

cool stuff. I rode around yesterday with it and it was cool. but I couldn't imagine turning up the settings and one being able to successfully ride my bike with it. alive. I didn't use the two bolts that go in the sides, there weren't any. I just used the big OEM triple tree bolt that screws on half way, made it tight.

I know what a stabilizer does (reason I got it), but when I first put it on last night, it was too stiff. I didnt understand why, but I took it apart earlier and it looks like the adjustment somehow got pushed passed the max setting and went around the dial an extra time basically making it stupid tight. (more than the max)

Could be you're too fast off brakes/on throttle... do you gun it right out of a turn?

wtf you bought a 929 nice. he got the gpr from me worked nice on my bike only reason I took it off cause I got scotts. I did however have to shave down the top triple tree nut so the gpr can clear cause the first time I put it on it was stiff has then I noticed it was pushing on the top nut. shaved it down and worked fine for me wheelies all day

Just don't forget to turn it down either...
A. When exiting track and turning into pits... you may run straight into the wall when it won't turn easily.
B. When pulling into a gas station after exiting freeway... you may right straight into the ditch.

At the very least it'll give you an oh moment

You might be able to try some washers on it to space it out from the nut. Thats what I had to do to my scotts.
