    How about a 4 bolt slip on muffler flange tp 50mm pipe adapter? I've found round 3 bolt flanges but no 4 bolt ones. I can find a ton of decent yoshimura's from GSXR-600's on ebay for fantastic prices but I want to put it on a Bandit 600 which uses slip fittings on a bolt on flange.

    I could cut and weld one up, but I was hoping to find something in stainless and less hacked together than my usual fab work.

    Core Moto makes custom lines to your measurements. No extra charge for colors. Good pricing.

    Battery boxes with LID: I want to mount a battery on the inside of a side rack for a project I am working on.

    Anyone makes affordable battery boxes out there that will have a roof?

    All I am finding the battery will be exposed to rain and theft.

    Arent air travelers to that country allowed a humanitarian item?

    Lots of Haitians in Montreal and I think I heard they are allowed to bring utility items into Haiti when they travel there by plane.

    Call the Air Canada office in Montreal, they will surely know.

    I just met a deer with my r1200gs, I'm looking for crash bars, handguards, right cylinder head cover, windshield, right side tourtech box and rear fender. A friend said there are people here that make or sell some of these parts . Any one have suggestions?

    Looking for an upgrade to the exhaust for my 2010 Tiger 1050. Just looking for a better sound. The performance is ok as is. The bike sounds like a 3-cylinder sewing machine. I know I can spend $300-500, just don't want to. What has worked well for you guys?

    Need a pair of Honda CM400A/450A carb boots. Even just the alum. bases would be a big help.

    I am looking for for some sprockets for my 2WD KLR 650 project. The chain is a 520, so it has a 5/8 pitch and is 1/4 inch wide. I am not sure if there are existing sprockets for go-carts and such that would fit this size chain. It seems like I would need a sprocket for a #50 chain, but I think those sprockets will be too wide to fit in to the 520 chain.

    The sprockets will be mounted on numerous jackshafts to route the chain to their needed locations.

    If anyone has any ideas, that would be great. Otherwise I will have to bolt or weld replacement front KLR sprockets on to some of the wrong size 3/4 bore, keyed sprockets I ordered and didn't fit the chain.

    yes, i am totally serious and insane

    Might be worthy of a thread, but I figured I'd start here.

    I have a 1967 BSA A65 I'm making into a street tracker.

    Looking for a swingarm that looks the part. I would take advice on:

    -Custom builder
    -Applications that have a similar pivot width and will clear the frame
    -maybe some of you are old school flat trackers and have something

    Any help appreciated

    If you don't know it already, check out VFT.org
    Great resource for odd/rare/old/tracker stuff. I see frame components for old race frames all the time. You can also post a wanted ad.

    Nice 10mm plated nut with built in lock from YAMAHA 95604-06200


    Whenever I would be building brackets and mounting things to my bikes I would alway need these 10mm nuts.

    I would buy them from the hardware store for 40cents but what that 40 cents would get me is a nut that rusts easely, has no built in seat at the base and a nylon lock. It makes your bike look like it was built by a hardware store.

    I quit using them and now I use Yamaha OEM nuts that are plated, have a nice seat at the base and a steel lock that wont melt awat or crack off in ten years.

    2.40$ CAD is what I pay for them, not cheap but I still just keep buying them.

    I put a hardware locking 10mm nut next to it so you can see the difference.

    Still looking for a lightly used 19" X 3.50 tube type, trials or Duro HF-308 vintage block pattern tire. Local to Western Oregon, I can come to the Willamette valley to pick up.
