i have 2 dirt single pickup CDIs you can have cheap
cool build on SAR:
I need to buy a new clutch cable for my 98 SE. I see options from Parts Unlimited, Motion Pro and Moose Racing. Anybody have an opinion, good or bad, about any of these? Or are they all pretty much the same? Bought MP last time and it's been fine for 3 years or so, and rather low miles. But I think it's due. Thanks.
If it were me, I'd buy the original Suzuki cable. They do not cost much more and are of really nice quality + sure fit.
Thanks Greg, For some reason I just assumed that OEM would require a second mortgage. So, I didn't even look. But, you're right, it's just a couple bucks more. Done.
The OEM cable is MUCH better quality. I thought it would be a lot more expensive too.
Stock forks from a 97SE, pretty worthless to me - anyone need anything before I junk em? Axle, spacer, triple clamps? Headlight mounts are pretty bent/wonky
Axle, triples and stem will work on any year, probably worth holding onto or putting up on the FM.
That USD fork is going to need new seals sooner than later (conventionals). Always good to have a spare fork while one is being rebuilt.
I hate you.....=)
Does anybody have a functioning muffler that they might consider selling me? I'm trying to overhaul my Supertrapp and can't get the core out, but I'm past the point of putting it back together. If it just won't come or I have to get too destructive to remove it, I'll be in the market for a muffler to get me back on the road. My budget is pretty slim at the moment, but I'm not super picky. A stocker in decent shape, an aftermarket that's not louder than a Supertrapp (or at least could be quieted down a touch), or stocker from another bike that would fit with minimal modification or fab would be fine.
Alternately, if anyone has any tips about getting the core of my Supertrapp out, I'd welcome them. Cap is removed, tension ring is out, rivets are all drilled out, and the shape of the muffler prevents me from ramming it out with a broomstick. I think it's just held in by rust at this point. I've hammered a tiny screwdriver in all around the perimeter between the outer muffler body and the core and can't tell where it's hung up. I slipped a hook down inside onto the end of the screen and made an ersatz slide hammer that just crumpled the screen and didn't budge the core at all. Right now, it's soaking in a bucket of Berryman's and I'll attack it again tonight. If no progress, I'll get out the cutting tools and destroy the core. I think I can find a new core on Ebay if it comes to it.
i had an aluminum universal muffler that used a steel pin to retain the core located near the inlet end under the clamp
Heat; tap, tap, tap around the muffler with a rubber or wooden mallet (or a chunk of 2x4); soak in a bucket of dilute molasses or vinegar (eats rust) or evaporust (if you have the $$$)
evaporust is wicked awesome.
What kind of supertrap. The name plate on some are riveted through the core. Need to drill those out too.
Thanks everyone for suggestions.
Couldn't find any additional hardware, but I'll do another check with a good light and dental mirror and make sure. And yeah, a blowtorch around the rim is on my list for tonight.
As above, I'll use a torch and my rubber mallet. It's been soaking in chem dip for about 16 hours now.
I've never been able to track down a model name. It's an older Supertrapp, though. No name plate, and as I mentioned I've drilled out every rivet I could find.
Post a picture
Looks like this, but without a hacked up endcap.
I think it was intended for an XR.
I've got a supertrap off this DR350 that I'm rebuilding. You're welcomed to it........just pay shipping
Thank you for the offer. I may very well take you up on it, I'll stay in touch as I get a feel for how much it would take to fix the one I have. What's the condition, and is it the simple straight slip-on style?
