Replacing the bucking bar with the butt end of 5/16 (HSS) High Speed steel drill bit is, without a doubt the best way to go.

I learned this from 2-Door a couple years ago haven't had to change it out it out since, only to put it in a new motor and put the factory bar in stock

I ride my bike EVERY single day unless there is more than 6" of snow on the ground.
Thank You 2 Door
