    Hey doug...you posted on my page about making or buying my cruiser peg mounts... I'd love to see some pictures of some of the things you've built... especially the luggage rack! Also...were the shocks hard to tear apart? My chrome is flaking off and i want to see how much it would cost to get the outter cover rechromed.

    I have no idea without seeing one. Is there enough of the old one that you could just solder a longer wire to it.

    Hi Doug, did you get my response, it's not showing anywhere that it sent
    just wanted to know if that is the name of the jet kit (factory Pro stage three) so I can buy it from somewhere and what is Glen's a/f adjustment.

    Also a video would be very handy as I don't have a clue what but would try it with guidence.

    Sorry if you have gotten this a few times as I am new to this forum

    Thanks for all your help.
    Dave

    Donut what brand, grade type of bearing grease should we bring - we can pick some up tomorrow before we leave town.

    We just need the details so we get the right stuff.

    Thanks

    Hey Doug...That guy in K-Zoo with the fuel issue is gonna need one of us to help him out...You're a bit closer to him, but if you're busy I can get up there and get him fixed this weekend...Told him in the thread to get the parts to fix the diaphram in the petcock....He's fixed the vacuum lines already, so thinking that's the problem...Heard of it happening before here too...

    I can't thank you enough Doug for all you are all you have helped me with. I tried to get back in the garage to help people out but It seemed as if I was just in the way. Let me know when your out riding or any other gatherings in the future. Your the best my friend

    Doug,

    Finally got some pics posted of the V&H exhausts that I have. They both are really in pretty good condition. Most of the scratches are on the bottom...the smudges on the tips on #1 are noticeable but I think they have tip covers you can get that will cover the smudges. Let me know which one you want and I will box it up and send it to you. I have to find a big enough box some place. Bill was thinking about wanting to get V&H for his bike as well. I will see if he wants the one you don't choose. I am more than happy to give them away. They are just taking up space here in my garage. Here is the link of the pics I took. Not real good. I took them with my phone...need to get a battery for my good camera. If you have any questions or want a better pic let me know.
