    I must be missing something, but I don't think it's keys.

    I thought it was a set of keys too. Maybe a leaf under the car.

    I put in a new clutch for my CB750 K3 today. Parts off eBay - EBC Heavy Duty Clutch Kit CK1133 for $47 and Barnett 501-56-04015 Clutch Spring Kit for $17. I had to make a tool with my cutoff grinder from a 7/8 socket. It rides well for what it is. The Suzuki GS1100 is like a hand grenade going off, the Honda is a nice, if bouncy, nostalgia machine.

    I, being a total rookie when it comes to VVT stuff, inadvertently ruined the Atlas inline 6 in my 07 Trailblazer over a year ago. I overlooked a 20 dollar problem and starved the crank for oil. It would not have happened if I had done a little research. It's a long story, and the bottom line is that at my age I had no oomph to swap that thing out. I wanted somebody else to do it. I finally found a suitable low mile engine from a wreck, drove 216 miles to get it. Made a good deal with a shade tree self employed fellow to work on it whenever he found time and felt like it. Today we cranked it up. It never took 2 rotations to start up and ran like brand new, quiet, smooth, not a tick in the engine. Calling me happy is a huge understatement as I really love my Trailblazer and that inline 6 in particular. And this has GS content as there was some horse trading involved for his labor that included a GS850 he's borrowed a couple times and really wanted.

    So, the free, rusty, complete exhaust with intact baffles cleaned up better than I had ever dreamed. I did buy new OEM screws and washers for the shields and new connector inserts (I have no idea what those are made of). Never dreamed my bike could sound this good and smooth and much quieter. So long drilled baffles.

    OMG, Rich!

    I remember how much you wrote about the POs actions with drilling holes in the exhaust ends...

    Glad you got that resolved...the bike sounds great!
