    I'm a fan of a small amount of low (or medium strength for bigger fasteners) loctite on dissimilar metals (i.e. steel bolts in aluminum) to prevent corrosion/sticking.

    I concur that red loctite...

    I've had some luck catching the edge of a screw or bolt with a chisel, and had it bite into the fastener, but not just cut a big piece off... this (when you do it right, AND no drunk and hungover...

    For once, I'm gonna' have to disagree with the esteemed Tattoo.

    It's a super common upgrade on 1200 XLs, and they work quite well.

    One more thing to look for - I learned the hard way on my 2001... although that shift shaft does NOT look right, you mentioned that the noise did not appear to be RPM dependent.

    I think it's a case-by-case thing.

    From what I've heard, the OE (which a lot of people don't like the looks of...) air cleaner makes good power if you use the SE it/ the little radiused inlet that...

    Yeah, I came to that conclusion as well. Via experience... well, just kind of a good scare.
