Heh, I read AARP...
Another sign of getting old.
I guess that would make the Anti-Rotation Screws (ARS).
Or affectionately as ARSe.

Yeah, you mentioned you just wanted to know what the abbreviated letters stood for.
But I've been like a machine lately and naturally flung the pics up.
It may be helpful to someone later.

I saw "squid" listed as being a non-harley rider, Poser, etc. It means " A rider without any gear, usually shirtless and probably wearing shorts, with sandals or flip-flops."

Breathing some life back into this thread,
I was told years ago by a young, dare devil, crotch rocket rider that SQUID was an acronym for

Super
Quick
Until
I
Die

Kinda morbid, love my Sportster, don’t think I want to qualify.
