    …my uni-bit works just fine for drilling out my own gussets.

    On a side note, how do you know when a trend is played out….

    I kinda dig em – if you look at the OEM gussets on the XS650 Frame, you can see this is a MUCH cleaner look than just punching random holes in the OEM Gussets. I could spend 2-3 hours fabbing up the pieces, or just buy this kit and weld it up. No Brainer to me.

    And I’m with Ki – Speed holes never go out of style…
