  1. Indeed it is 6X12 but I think I will go back and get the 6X16 as with a thin washer they barely catch the threads so have been using them without the washers for now.
  2. Hi I was doing maintenance and realized that both of my rear tank bolts have vibrated loose - I placed an order for oem bolts on bike bandit but they have informed me that COVID has delayed shipping from their suppliers and warehouses. In the mean time, do any of you have spare set from a part out bike? Or if you can please measure your stock ones for size and thread I can pick up some temporary ones from the hardware store. Thanks. Art
  3. 1998 VFR800, Pipercross air filter, Micron high mount and PC3 custom map. Wondering if I’m able to get on the list for the next batch. Mine stock headers do not have O2 bungs correct? So I do not need any bungs on my build? Art
  4. Can then outlet just be the stock size please? That way I can run my Micron or Staintune as was designed. Art

  6. That is correct, back when I acquired the VFR and went ahead and did the delink. I may need another pair of the special washers. Also, the brackets I have, they take the space of the reflector that is removed correct? Art
  7. Hummm... I have a set from 4/13 what version were those? Any difference in mounting? How much, with another pair of the stepped washer? Upon further inspection, I need another set as the fender installed on my Hawk requires these too, they were installed with regular hardware from prior mechanic. Art
  8. Differences? Lighter? Art

    just saw these comments, thank you guys. that trip was a good one
  10. 007 what is the PRB fall ride and what does it entail? Art
  11. You should reach out to him and find out what the current settings are, but I do recommend scooping that up and putting it in the stash for another day as they are rare. I recognize the seller from the Hawk GT forums, he keeps his bikes and spares in good condition. You can research then mail it out if it needs a different spring/revalve in the future. Come to think of it, check out the VFR750 he also has listed for sale. Art
  12. And you should definitely scoop this up for the build from the other forum: http://vfrworld.com/classifieds/showproduct.php?product=6807&title=90-93-ohlins-shock-3-springs&cat=4 I have been keeping an eye out for a 5th gen Ohlins but it seems no one is ever letting them go.
  13. We were actually planning to head out that direction tomorrow but the rain pattern is coming in from the NW. We are heading down toward Richmond for the day for mid 70's temps before coming back up in the evening when it stops. Art
