Re: Sprocket cover

I'm worried Hawk might be coming down with a mild case of OCMD.

Lots of us on here know the symptoms, starts out with one small thing and escalates into a major project.

We better keep an eye on him . :thumbup:

Re: Thread contains a yellow storm

Did you say it's finished ?

I'd like a $ for everytime I have said that.

Looks good and I know from personal experience the difference a USD and good brakes make to these old girls.

Now ride and enjoy . :thumbup:

Re: Can You Fit SP1/2 Headers To A VTR1000F

Pissing down rain here now!

Researching the material for the hangers.

Have found some good steel rod , now to source the end fittings. I want to have bushes wherever there is contact .

3 months with this and still going . I hope the return is worth the effort!

I do love the sound !

Re: Can You Fit SP1/2 Headers To A VTR1000F

Took another ride out in the bush with a mate on his 749 Duc. The sound is unreal. My mate commented how it sounded when I sailed past him at a rapid rate ! No issues with ground clearance and running well. I feel that it has a bit more puch than before . Well happy, just need to get used to the loo...

Re: Can You Fit SP1/2 Headers To A VTR1000F

Well here is the end product, or should I say almost the end product as the bracketry is only temporary. It allows me to ride and enjoy the sound. One of my riding buddies commented that it sounded like it should. Not sure about the look but it works well. https://imgur.com/gallery/XA71V I intend to...
