That's a reclaimed coal mine in the background.
I got a set from this guy. He ended up accepting $100 USD shipped to the USA. Price is crazy high but what can you do when no one else has them.
Quite aggravating. He was posting pictures of his "scores" on the 70° Facebook group in December and then started listing it all for sale a month later... But, like you said, if you want some what can you do?
Yup. Capitalism at its worst, so to speak (IMHO).
I found mine @ Hyde Racing but can't seem to get their website up for some reason.... or I wuda posted a link. I do remember them being a little highly priced for 2 pieces of plastic. Work as advertised though
I removed mine to have a look and found some small spots of rust. As I'm not wearing heavy steel-enforced footwear I decided to leave them off (but no, I'm not planning to sell them, sorry ;-).
I found some listed from Hyde, but can’t vouch if they’re still available.
I have a couple of their skid plates but prefer aluminum better out here in land of high speed rocky g-outs.
Those are^the ones!
I've been thinking about removing mine, covering the frame with some clear 3M adhesive film I have and then reinstalling the protectors. I figured dirt, dust, etc was probably going to get behind them and possibly cause some issues.
It will, they do. When I got my bike, there was a little dirt, rust, and rubbed off paint on the frame. I doubt that much would have rubbed off without the guards. I'll likely take them off and paint the area with DupliColor bedliner when/if I do it again.
Stoked to take the blue beast out after many months of hibernation
1) Anyone with Factory Connection suspension? Is it worth it? It's pretty spendy. Any other options out there?
2) Same as above only for Warp9 cush wheels. I know 640 rear is possible, but tough to find and I need new rims/bearings anyway.
Triple clamp case savers initial impression.... Saw Hyde version posted above, these are half the cost (still $$ tho).
Likes: They match :). Metal spacers to keep from collapsing plastic. Will protect stock cases.
Dislikes: The clutch side was hitting my rear brake return spring. Filed a notch to relieve. Not a big deal really. More a big deal, they require longer fasteners. All are included but the clutch side front. That one is super long (reuse stock). The others are Allen heads. I would've like them to be the same hex/torx as stock just longer. Nick pick? Sure, but I'm an attention to detail type.
All in all I'd buy again. Fast shipping and a fair price.
For the first time in my life I think I have a little van envy.
Saaaweeet rig man!!!
1) yes, mine came with the upgrade, so I dunno how much it costs (was about $300 when I sent the shock back for a rebuild, mistakenly I thought it was leaking, don't think it was). But it was worth it for me, the suspension is 100% awesome and came setup for my weight and "compliant woods" riding, and it truly is the best tracking suspension I've had. I've always found suspension money is worth it (far more than loud exhausts...).
Thanks! Not bad for '96 yeah.
Another thing has caught my attention lately: at the gas grip both accelerator cable sockets are broken. That leads to multiple questions:
- can this be a cause for engine vibrations?
- why 2 accelerator cables (and only 1 cylinder)?
- do I have to remove the tank again to change them?
Well known issue with the 4T FI bikes, here’s the fix:
