Well here are some new pics from yesterday. Mike from Aesthetic creations was in DC/MD area so I figured it was time to retire my stock stripes and get something new and well close to stock.

and got talked into some gauges faces by JustJay. Well I wanted them anyway when they first came out and Mike had a set with him so I couldn't say no. Well I could've and tried to talk myself out of it but it was a lost cause. So, now I've got new gauge faces.

I was all stoked about my new purchases until I changed the belt out and put in the DT Tension stop. Uhh there is supposed to be a shock/damper under here right? Well the bushing deteriorated and one end of the shock fell off the bolt. We had to rig it with some electrical tape (replaced as the bushing) and the DT tension stop so that it would slip off, and I drove it home gingerly. I hope to have the parts by Wednesday to replace the tensioner.

Anyone got any good tricks to get the tensioner off?

Sorry no pics of the tensioner.
