    Nice!! What kind of brake setup is that? How do you like it? I have been looking to upgrade but can't find any with really good reviews.

    Thanks! It's the Powerstop K137 kit, pads and rotors. My stock rotors were warped so it's a night and day difference right now just with the smoothness in braking already haha. Have not pushed them enough to honestly tell their additional performance but so far they've been great, best bang for your buck.

    Yes - the fabric straps hold and work well. So far, I'm pleased with the holder. Had 3 bikes on it between Massachusetts and New Brunswick, and it's held in there well.

    Have you compared your fuel economy before and after fitting these?

    Saturday I replaced the water pump and coolant on my 2006 2TR-FE. WP was leaking from the weep hole with pink crusties down the front of the block. Shop down the street quoted $550. I said no thank you, I will do it myself. $46 for a factory Aisin water pump (gasket included), $25 for coolant, and about 3 hours... not lightning fast, this was my first time doing WP on this motor, but surprisingly easy to do. Hardest part was getting the 4 nuts off the fan clutch/pulley, there's adequate access for a box wrench but practically nowhere to grab and hold the assembly while breaking the nuts free. Coolant change was coming up in 4,500 miles and made sense to change while it was drained for the new WP.

    Saved myself about $475 in 3 hours :D

    Did you call the parts store and describe to them what the part you were looking for looks like?
