    Check, I was looking for a 16inch. But 18 would work as well.

    Still have a set of Nighthawk wheels lying around. Let's try the fit of those. The Nighthawk rear is a 16 inch vs the CX 15 inch. Hope the shaft matches. Thanks for the advice!

    Hey team, I'm looking for a flat track style down pipe that will fit a Honda XL125.

    A pipe off a 74 XL125, or many CB and SL100s, and 125s would work.

    I'd appreciate a PM if you have one laying around.

    Looking for a fuel tank fitting to connect to lines to feed a frame-mounted non-vacuum petcock (can't reach the petcock if it is mounted on the tank!!) to replace the trashed stock unit on my JDM Suzuki Goose. Two bolts 44mm apart, two tubes to feed the ON and RES inlets on the petcock below, outlets pointing down or downish, just not completely sideways. Current main tube is about 2.75" long and reserve tube is flush, but I am negotiable on these points. I would also consider a petcock I could just leave open all the time, and control fuel with the petcock below. I found a lot of talk of such a beast on the internet, but no specifics like part numbers or a source. Seems kinda close the GS500 parts, but not quite the same. XS650 isn't quite right either!

    FWIW, I can get a new one on eBay for about $165ish plus shipping from overseas, just hoping to find a cheaper/faster source for what is basically a little cast metal slab with two metal straws and a little filter. Thanks in advance!

    I don't have a part number...I would love to find a Japanese-market parts fiche, but no luck on that front yet. The British Goose Owners Club has a decent little parts number list on their website (in English) that includes a lot of the common wear items, spark plugs, brake pads, oil filters, turn signal bulbs, etc. I was hoping cmsnl.com would have a Suzuki Goose listing, but they don't! I find some stuff by searching yahoo japan with SG350N or better yet NK42A, but my Japanese is quite rusty and was quite poor to begin with.

    Here is the lower petcock, shared with the DR800:

    Yes, the upper part is 44mm on the center of the two bolts.

    Make a new one or ask a handy friend to help make one or your flange could be reused also . Then you'd just need the upper tube . Use 2 inline filters .

    I'm looking for a specific type of clamp, butt-fit type with 2 T-bolts, & it looks exactly like in these pics.
    I need it to cover a 55mm (2 1/4" dia.) pair of butt-fit exhaust pipes (header to slip-on).
    I found this 57mm dia. aluminum clamp from HGV direct in the UK, but I'd prefer to buy it in the U.S. if possible.

    Why does it have to have T-bolts.

    It doesn't, but it's the slimmest profile I could find vs the bigger walker clamps

    Try searching for "but joint band clamp"
    Summit racing might have what your looking for.

    Trying to mount a 9" single LED, to a YZ front end, on a GenI KLR. Does anyone know of a good (affordable) source of clamp that fits the beefy upper section of a YZ/WR fork? They're tapered, and range from 55-58mm on the upper section.

    Old post, so you may have found something, but I just stumbled across this awesome thread. I just found a 9" roundie, in LED, if you're still looking. Sounds like we were in similar boats. I'm impressed with it so far, and will definitely require a dimmer with it's 15000lm (150W). :eekers

    Day dreaming about a winter project.
    Have a low mile 2002 Suzuki 1200 Bandit and not thrilled about its frame and handling.
    Rumors have it the motor will fit early 86, 87, 88 GSXR 1100 frames.
    Had a 87 GSXR 1100 and was thrilled about that one.
    Also have Carbon Fiber wheels on the B12.
    Would rather use newer USD forks.
    Bad plastic/seat is also not a show stopper.

    So...Anyone got a Oil Cooled GSXR with a bad motor ?

    Cheers !

    you will probably have to go by the seal dimensions and type but they can usually be sourced
    have you got it apart ?

    I found this, not exactly the style or size you were looking for but it might be a lead.
