I have a lazer align you can borrow any time you want.  I don't expect to use it much with the single sided swingarm.
I bought a case of Pennzoil full synthetic (made from natural gas) oil today.  Better stuff than the Honda oil when the next change rolls around.  Have to save the recipts thogh to prove I did it and stay in warrantee.

Pennzoil? Do people actually use that in things other than rototillers? ::)

Say what you will but when even the Sears Warehouse in Bristol (?) didn't have what I was looking for the bike and HF did well... I've spent less in a year @ HF on tools I use here and there then in one day @ Sears who btw is mostly Chinese junk now anyways. Obviously buying certain things at really low prices is a given probably junk but their sockets/wrenches and air compressor has worked just fine for me! :D
