I've learned to keep a back-up bike with Harley ownership.

The same type of issue happend with my Ducati Monster. A part failed in the shifting mechanism and it was down for a month in prime riding season. In the end after fighting with the dealer they did what they should have done in the first place and removed a part from a bike on the floor. The cranky parts man treated me like shit and didn't seam to understand my displeasure..... For the record it was Inglis Cycles in London Ontario.

I wonder if there is a conversion out there for a Magura hydro system?

Might be a day late and a dollar short on this, maybe an aftermarket cable would be worth being cash-out-of-pocket for bike-back-on-the-road?

Hi folks,
this is my XR1200SC "The Scrambler". In my opinion this is the bike lot's of people would like to get offered from the MOCO. This is one of two Harley's i own. My other one is a Dyna Glide. I like to convert my Harley's with (mostly)used other HD parts, but want to beware the "Original HD Look". So i do the same as the MOCO - take something from this and that model and: VOILA! Create a new Bike...
Before you ask, here is the parts list:
- powder coated wheels from a 2008 Street Bob
- tyres 110/80R19 & 150/70R17 Metzeler Karoo
- LSL upper plate of triple tree
- 7" Headlight Euro-Style
- Puig lamp mask
- LSL Stahlflex brakelines in front
- Hyperpro dampers front fork kit
- 16" rear shocks from HD Street Rod
- rearlight cover jp cycles
- derby cover No1
- Corbin gunfighter and lady seat
- K&N filter, remove airbox flapper (Euro Version), trick-plug in
- Nightrider OIED sensor tuning
This bike is not yet finished, stay tuned for the upgrates.

I love my new to me 09 Vivid Black XR1200. Sweet package. The black V and H pipes sound fabulous. I fell in love with them while announcing the Vance and Hines XR1200 races at the GP in Indy. I came home and bought one the following week.

Sweeeet.
Barry

Very nice. Did those Street Bob wheels bolt right on?

The bearings are the same size: 1".
You need a pully spacer of 20mm, a spacer left side (brake side) 11mm, a spacer right side (pully side) 18mm
So, go on and do it!

That is an incredible looking bike and now you have the right size wire wheels for a good adventure tire selection. You have me thinking.

Any XR1200 owners headed to the Grand National Championship race in Calistoga, Ca this Saturday. If so, look me up.
