Default Couple of general interest things---

Wee2:Changing from the top box to the rack bag support and back again is a PITA when they are bolted through the standard rack holes.
Recon Well Nuts would do the job front a center and success.The box would die before the Well Nuts let go and the bolts are easy to remove.
WN J1420
WN D-1420 would be better but nil at my bolt shop

Dremel Stuff: Received a heap of buffing disks & bobs etc from China after a severe price fright at Bunnings.Just been giving them a workout on a alloy rim and they are excellent.Recon the factory could even make them for Dremel

Lost 2 of the SW Moteck Quick Lock retaining washers.Asked Motorradgarage if they could supply them and received 2 complete fastener sets in the mail.Good stuff

Aldi regularly sell a Dremel like device that has strangely exactly compatible fittings. I have seen them sell boxes of accessories from time to time.

Thanks Ace.
Next time I'm in TT I will check.I have a good supply of polishing/buffing bits but another box of the other bits wouldnt go astray.
My Ozito tool is having a coronary so decided to get a real Dremel.First one from Bunnings lasted about 90 seconds Number two working well so far.

Default Prefer Ventura Rack

New 2nd hand DL650 came with a RJAYS top box, it had to go to make way for Ventura, h'mm how to remove the three bolts securing the RJAYs mounting bracket, eventually removed the whole SUZUKI bracket ....a strange way of mounting the RJAYS.

Made a temporary bracket for holding Ventura rack, waiting for the Ventura "L" brackets. Saw a Ventura bracket held in place with hose clamps...effective...looked awful.

What Ventura bag do you have mate ?
I had a Pinnacle pack for years (pre Ventura) that wore out.Replaced with a China copy with rubbish zips that just got binned.Now looking at the Ventura Aero-Spada as its the closest thing to the old Pinnacle I can find.Are they as good as they look ?
I have a home made rack bar that I bolt on as needed but getting the nuts under the front of the Wee2 rack is a PITA.Recon 2 Well Nuts in the front rack holes will do the job nicely.
Cheers, Macca

Thanks Ace,
Thats a good kit for the $.Lots of stuff that I maybe would never use but when the price is about equal to three or four Dremel burrs or bitbobs its a gift.And its a stock line at TT.
