The Traxxion Tie Bar and the pin to make the slop measurement arrived today. I should have just ordered the pin... I put it in the holes and there is no slop in the stock tie-rod whatsoever.
Well, shut my mouth wide open! Max shows use of two pins in two alignment holes. Says he "may" discount the set.No. There is just one set of holes to use it in, so you only need one pin.

Now, all that said; I "think" the intent of having the pins is to align the front wheel with the upper tree and not so much to check free board of the tie rods. One could simply force the front wheel to one of the steering limit stops and then check for that amount of play. But, use of the pin is convenient.
Maybe you can get it done well with one pin. In the lower to check end play and at the top to verify alignment of handle bars to center of bridge. It seems to have been a learn as you go thing for Max as well.Would have been nice if they had updated their web store to talk about the use of two pins. I am not gonna pay another 10 bucks for another 2 dollar pin and have to pay shipping on it too.
