So I finally had to replace a #2 Phillips screw driver after too many years of service.
Instead of turning it in to the tool truck I was thinking of Mark LaValee.

That's got CV's? Take a #2 phillips screwdriver, heat the tip with a torch until cherry red and plunge it into your eye. It will hurt less. Really. Do a search using my username (elr658) and read the HUNDREDS of posts I've made advising against pods and removing the airbox. Look at my facebook. Bikes with CVs have airboxes. Bikes with slide needle carbs have pods. Even Mark Dobeck, former owner of Dynajet, cops to a loss of midrange using his kits.

Anything that makes a machine more difficult to service GOES!

I took a soldering iron and engraved elr658 on the handle and screwed the worn out tool to the wall.
