  1. Late response but maybe pertinent. Have looked pretty far&wide(e-bay, etc.), these are becoming scarce, as in NLA new. Just struggled thru a testing, grasping straws session with one of mine, turned out that sensor works but screws on back of speedo weren’t making good enough elec. contact with printed circuit. What a PIA, getting to back of instruments is beyond tedious!
  2. Yes, shows how procrastination can pay off in a way, also that luck isn’t always the bad kind. May not be a favourable comment on my maintenance practice though!
  3. Changed shock. About time too, 317K km! Bottom needle bearing good but bumper totally shot, can only imagine what it’s like inside..dr
  4. Looks like Fraser valley/chilliwack./abbotsford vicinity?

  6. Soon 2B 76, 1stgen & 2 4ths, now I feel old. 👀

    Went down this rabbit hole with mine a few months ago. One of the pair of pulser coils would fail hot, replacing it solved the problem. They’re only available in pairs, used(eBay?), so you’re gambling the replacements won’t have the same flaw. Took me weeks to track & solve, hopefully squirrel man & myself can save you some stress!
  10. Have them on my ‘96, only a few dry rides so far but they seem fine, maybe a bit quicker profile than Michelin’s. Seem agile on turn in/lean..
