    Once you flip them over you will see. The way they are positioned now, the axle sits lower, raising the rear, changing the suspension geometry which makes the bike turn in quicker at the cost of minimal stability. If you watch pro racers, you will see their bikes twitching all over the place. They run on the ragged edge of stability in order to turn in RIGHT NOW!!! Stock bikes are just the opposite set up to be very stable in a straight line.

    Flipped eccentrics don't make it unsafe, but, if you are new to the bike, it may feel odd at first. It really turns in better though and has more cornering clearance too... Play around with the suspension and get the sag set properly, (plenty of youtube videos on how to do so), and make sure the shocks and forks are serviced, (most rear shocks have zero charge in them after all these years), get out and do a track day if you get a chance as well

    Re: You never forget the first time

    So I took off the loud can and thought I'd repack it to see if it would quiet it down, but packing was in great condition. Straightened out the little tweak on the edge of it while I had it apart, and looks great. That thing is so light! Anyway as I go to put it back on it sure looks like it should be mounted inside the hanger bracket, not on the outside like it was. Any of you guys agree?

    Instead of the bigass drain plug bolt hanging down just waiting for something to come along and grab it, there must be a narrow set hex drive that will fit it. Any recommendations?

    So what the hell is this? Looks like a ground to me. I'm guessing it just gets bolted down someplace close?

    For 17 years / 67,000 miles I've had my bike and never an issue with that bolt, still original one.
    Rode "the Dragon" a couple times, Illion Gorge, Rt. 13, Valley Rd. + loaded it in 2 truck beds, been on multiple trailers.
    Ride the bike.

    That ground is normally under one of the bolts on the cross brace in your photo

    Yeah I'm sure the odds of catching it are slim, but if it's going to happen it's going to happen to me ... when on a trip in the middle of nowhere. Think I'll get one .. cheap insurance.

    Found that loose ground while pulling the plugs just for the heck of it. Figured that's what it was but wanted to make sure.
