    :stupid: Andrew Barnes just spun the shaft on the transmission and tried wiggling it and the belt was still at normal tension even he said old or updated shaft really doesn't matter the clutch hub but loosening is what blows them out

    Yep Ker is correct and I missed that part in your original write up. The seal only seals with the back of the clutch basket torqued down

    So you have to choose whether to get wet in Texas or in Florida

    It's mostly the ride over to Florida I know it will rain along those gulf states in the spring. Fall is a better chance of less rain.

    Plus less people at biketoberfest than Daytona. Don't want to go there to sit in traffic

    You’re right. Daytona is sitting in the bar or traffic, or trying to get to a bar thru million people by foot on Main Street

    It's not so bad if you know your way around you can take side/back roads to get to where you want to go there are plenty of ways to get into main st without dealing with traffic and plenty of secured paid parking lots. It's gotta be good it draws a huge crowd both seasons every year and most of us keep going back along with thousands of others from across the country

    This will be my first event like this... I usually avoid large crowds. The draw for me is getting a chance to meet up with the guys on the forum.....see you all there!

    Sounds to me like ya don't like Daytona.
    Different strokes for different folks. I visit Main St. once during the day and then again that night, just to stand on a corner and watch the traffic for an hour or so and I'm good. No bars, waste of time and money. But I enjoy the total atmosphere around Daytona during that time and the rides up and down the coast is what WE like and that's all that really matters to me is the R&R that we get when we're there and its easy to rack up 3-500 miles on the bike when we're there.

    By the way Gil, don't listen to Dent [​IMG]about parking,:oldlaugh: it was $7 last time, but look for the places that offer you return parking for the whole day.:old2: Be careful if you drink cause when you leave the secure parking they stop you at the exit to check your ticket so it matches your bike, along with a little chat with you.
