Well, I dun it again and now I need new clip-ons.

Unfortunately I turned the bolt too tight. Does anyone know what the

of snap off? In other words, the loosest it can go without having to
worry about it moving when you are pushing on it. I found this before
but never knew what the torque actually was. Last weekend I was trying
to be better safe than sorry and tightened them down really tight. I
remember thinking to myself, these are going to snap if I crash.

I also now need a new can. I have the Hindle slip-on (sounds friggin
awesome). Anyone have a Hindle full system or Leo Vince full system,
for a first gen, that he is willing to part with? I would pay a good
