Pro-Tools 105 bender. 1.5" and 1.75" dies. Whole package was cheaper than just the dies new. Should be fun.
that's a really nice find.

Yep, sure can. Just make sure you get it all pinned correctly. I watched someone turn a brand new JD2 bender into a pretzel with the HF ram, due to incorrect assembly. it absolutely twisted up that 5/8 steel. couldn't even take it apart after, just threw it as a whole, in the trash.

You will be getting a lot of hangouts messages when I get around to using this thing.

Nice. I've had a 06 for a couple of years.

Looks like yours is a S model that was converted to naked after three to many crashes.

If you're going through it and doing maintenance, a quirk of the 07+ is 2 spark plugs per cylinder.

To Valds theory. Neither of my EFRs smoked. And remember, I at one point had that loop-d-loop drain line that did a circle around my intercooler pipe and totally was at best flat and was probably up hill. And the 6758 with 4 different drain configs all used NPT fittings into the turbo. The new turbo has a basically flat drain line with 2 90s and 3 inches of hose that does use the flanged connection but goes into the pan below the oil level.
