Yeah, my axle nut is on way too tight for a crescent wrench. Two contact points would cause deformation. A single sided swing arm axle nut requires more than twice the amount of torque as our CBR's.

I got all the fluids changed, swapped out the tires. That rear wheels is light! but no rotor or sprocket attached.

The perch of the OEM clutch lever was pretty bent (downwards), so I though, hmmm, I'll just tap it with a hammer to straighten it out a little...

I snapped that puppy right off... so now, I hafta wait till the pazzo's come in, wed/thurs. Raining all week anyway.
