    If you've got any clamps like these https://www.bunnings.com.au/irwin-300mm-quick-grip-mini-bar-clamp_p5861542

    they are quick - I messed with the cable tie method and ended up resorting to the clamps - three should be sufficient - and it's quick, not real deal manufactured machine which does it easily quick, just faster than the cable ties

    OPS forgot to mention, get ~8cm long pieces of electrical conduit and cut it down the length as rim protectors

    Mighty fine quality from first glance ...

    Needed an upgrade ... Aldi ones weigh a ton ... these are really "light' ..... and after now losing like 30kg , size matters :D

    A lot of them have the maker stamped into the link's

    I bought a H/Duty DID chain a while ago when i replaced my front sprocket on the FZR, cost me about $50?
    i thought if i'm taking it down the strip soon it might pay to get something a bit better
    There's some DID O and X Ring chain's on aliexpress for around the same price as these too

    Well my aftermarket FZR250 3LN fork tubes tuned up today from @XCite Bikes which was quick delivery... well packaged so all was good until I opened the box and took one out for a look... the first thing I saw was the threaded end... and what do you know.. very fine thread.. looks just like the Zeal threads... so I went out and checked it with one of the caps and it picks the thread and that is it..
    So.. I will need to get the Zeal caps back from @GreyImport ... as long as he hasn't thrown them away :)

    I will keep that in mind, depending on @GreyImport and if he still has the Zeal caps... he should have. I also am interested in trying the Zeal rebound springs as well.. they are longer than the FZR ones.. not sure if they are softer or harder though.
    It would be really good if you didnt have to wreck a set of seals to change them...lol
