My solution to these gas prices is almost complete. Waiting on JDM taillights and F1 style mirrors to arrive from Japan




So far, (besides tune-up and detailing things) I've reupholstered the seat, scored a JDM DJ1-RR undercowl, removed springs completely to lower it (LOL), and threw some underglow on...

Dumb question, Producer -- is the (front) tire of your bike supposed to be mounted that way? Looking at the tread pattern, it'd make more sense to me if that front tire is mounted in the opposite direction on the wheel.

you know what? you might be right. that tire has been installed on the bike for less than 24 hours. i'll be pretty pissed if it's backwards. i didn't even look when i picked it up.

edit: i think it's right. will really have to check it later when i get home.

edit 2: it's correct - the little Michelin man is pointing his arrow in the right direction just the tread pattern of these 2Ct's

I would have assumed backwards as well, but if you zoom in on photo here:

The little arrows on the shoulder say its mounted correctly

Its been two weeks and this is how much has been done. Its a long and grueling process, but im glad the "shi fu" is so careful with the disassembly. He said he's never seen anything so well put together as the LC. Said compared to the ferrari and the lambos, the disassembly took 4x longer due to how many clips, bolts and fasteners the japanese uses.

I wouldn’t want to wrap a new car just because of this… once you take anything apart it’s never as tight as factory anymore.

^to be honest man I felt the same way. Once you rip it apart it’ll never be the same. But that being said, this guys garage is full of Ferraris and lambos pretty much all brand spanking new so I think I’m in good hands.

Initially looked for a few shops that didn’t require disassembly but then they just cut with a knife into the grooves and it’s not properly installed (will release within a few years due to the edges releasing first). There is also a chance that they’ll knick the paint with the knife if not careful. Pricing wise they are also quite a bit cheaper (half the cost) of my guy.

I love that LX!!!!!!!!!! i tried to convince the wife to drive that as a daily, but she said it was too big. She wanted a NX (uselessly small) so we compromised and got the RX instead.

Nothing will beat the utility, longevity, and build quality of that LX.
