Good buy!
Long handle length, short profile. That tool should speed up the process some.
Hey, a man's gottsta have more tools, that's just the way it is.
I use an 1/8 drive socket wrench and various sockets and it's not the easiest thing to do height wise.
It's also a pain turning one flat per round due to the little space.

You can buy a three pack of gear ratchet inserts,(1/4”-3/8”-1/2”), turning the appropriate size gear ratchet into a “slimmer profile ratchet that can be useful at times.

The value if a dollar is different to each man. I believe if resale is a consideration he made a good move without a doubt (another line in a negotiation can be worth well over 25.00 + shipping)
"Dude come down another $150"
"Are you joking, it comes with the fsm, all these specialty parts and is better maintained than a fking rocket ship"
......pause (the pause is important let tension build)...
Maybe they buy it, probably at least only shoot for $100 off; there's your $50 right there.

But, for me precious Kendall sae-50 and non-ethanol gasoline would be a better buy. So I'm in the make it yourself camp; A bc I'd never sell my baby, B bc I'm broke as a joke with nothing to smoke (well, very little)

Thanks brother, appreciate it. It obviously depends on your circumstances and abilities but it's so satisfying when your creation works and earns it's place in that box

Hippiesmack man, you are fking awesome. Always updating and adding to that thing. I'd bet there's more info about sportsters than any other bike on the planet, because you congregated it! I really would donate if I could, and I really hope others do if they can. That thing is a godsend!

Usually when I want to nerd out on something I have to bounce all over the web, not the ironhead. Once in a blue moon a hdforum or chopcult thread helps, but half of the time even they are linking your work.

Sorry for off topic, just really wanted to show appreciation. Every time I run into you your finding someway to improve that thing.

That's very humbling Ron.
There is now so much information in the Sportsterpedia, I can't remember what all is in there.
I can't find things sometimes because I remembered putting things in a different place, but really didn't.
So I have to use the search function more and more these days.

The truth of the matter is this.
90 percent of the information came from this forum either thru pics or posts.
I knew less than .0005% of any of this before I started researching this forum for Sportsterpedia.
With all the wealth of information that is there now, I realize that I now know 1/2 of what I did when I started.
If it weren't written down, I would have forgotten it already.
There are several members here that have given me the incentive for what I do in the pedia.
There many many more that have given me the drive to find information from the forum.
So when it's all said and done, I think it's safe to say the forum raised me in a way.
The Sportsterpedia is the XLForum without commercials.
I'm glad the information is useful in some way to all.

I'm in no way intended to be humbling, you deserve credit and thanks for such a useful tool; even if you had good help as you obviously did.
