Removed the tins to finally get them painted. I also I am going to add a smaller tooth front sprocket and a few other upgrades. I removed the rear foot pegs and found my exhaust bracket cracked.

Try using a telescoping magnet. It will probably pick up the clip and save you a lot of extra work.

Yeah that's what a lot of my buddy's have been saying to do. I'm going to pick on up in the next few day. I hope i can fish it out. I do have a crack in the primary side case that needs welded up. The problem with it is that it goes threw a bolt hole... 1 out of 3 isn't to bad lol.

Hook, mirror and magnet accessories, video-out cable

These come in handy for a lot of things. Might be worth a try.

I've found over the years, you can get all size magnets from old elec. motors. you can even cut or break them to the size you need. I've taped these to mechanics wire, zip ties, fishing line, wrenches, whatever it takes to get in there.

Ha, I do have some old speakers out of my old truck around here somewhere. I may try that as well.
Thanks for the ideal.
