    It was. I never did use it. I'm pretty sure I know where I put it lol.

    I believe Lug Nut, But I have never noticed any vibration.... or I have gotten so used to it that I don't pay it any attention.

    The right side disc cover has a weight to dampen harmonics...if you remove it you can pick up some vibration

    What is the cause of this vibration ?

    just remove the wheel. take the bolts out, remove covers, put the bolts back in, install wheel......I have done this to 5 bikes so far, Some of these bolts are real tight and need an impact driver or maybe some heat to get them started. i've had to end up easy-outing several bolts because of the heads striping.

    No, just get ready for some possible harmonic vibration.

I wouldn't feel right painting another bike the same.
    It would be kinda like getting to hook back up with your first girlfriend again.
    My first girlfriend ended becoming a prostitute later in life so not sure that would apply in my case.

    That might be worth painting another if not for just 1 ride.

    Trying to get Misfit back

    For those of you that have been on here for a while, you may remember my old black and white road star “Misfit” I miss that bike, and miss that bike and wish I had never sold it.
    I have been talking to my buddy I sold it too, and offered to trade him my 04 with 26k on it, for Misfit, which is an 01, with about 35k on it.
    I know my bike is worth more on paper, but that bike was my bike, and I would gladly trade to get it back. I sold it about 4-5 years ago. I don’t think he has ridden it much, and hope it is still in close to the same shape as when I sold it.
    Keep your fingers crossed for me.
    i would post a pic if we weren’t on the no pic band
