Safety wire

I'm sure there is a post on here somewhere, but I'm lazy. Does anyone on the west side wire bikes? I know P1 does, but Tomball is a hall.

I've never done it myself, however, I hear it's a nightmare to do by hand. Personally I wouldn't attempt it unless I had a drill press. Your skills might be better than mine though.

Just Plasti-dip it blue and white, slap a GSXR sticker on it, and call it a day

Stock is junk! I hate it. Just haven't gone to the dark side... But I'm heading towards designated TB, since I never put it on the road anymore.

Are you wanting to do the whole bike or just the main bolts?

It's actually incredibly easy if you have a vise and a corded drill. I can't believe all the people who make it seem like it's terribly hard. I would absolutely do it myself again if I have to.

Some parts are softer metal, either way, I would have a LOT of bits, or a sharpener.
Oh yeah, and drilling lube of choice......

Snapped 4 bits before getting through a single pinch bolt. It's a PITA.

I've done whole bikes with a single bit. You just have to do things slow. Start the bit perpendicular to the direction you need to go, once it starts the bite, roll the drill to the direction you need to go. Most people try to start on the angle they want and fail over and over. I just used vice grips to hold the bolt most of the time or drilled it on the bike if I could get to it.

its easy i paid alonzo 60 to do mine the whole time it was worth it bc i didn't have a drill at the time but now i have a drill i can do mine. but for 50 or 60 bucks it's worth paying someone to do it for you and get it in spec for cmra or ama spec
