    Powder coating differential

    Does the differential have to be completely disassembled to be powder coated? Going to do my swing arm black and want the final drive to match

    Crankshaft

    I have a nice engine lined up one of our brothers has. Just waiting for court for the rest of my money for my bike accident last year. If everything goes right I’ll have a stroked motor with flatslides.

    Crankshaft

    How much would it cost to replace a crankshaft. It was hit where it sticks out of the engine by the end near the flywheel bolt. Internally the motor turns over fine. Any help is always appreciated

    Reducing header outlet

    It just allows me a lot more can options. 2.25 inlet is a pain in the ass to find. Almost as hard as 4” 18 gauge carbon fiber tubing. Or as hard as bleeding those new six pots with a hammer. Thanks for the great brakes and advice along the way Sean and others. Turning my vision slowly into...

    Reducing header outlet

    What effect would reducing header outlet from 2.25” to 2” have on the bike? Trying to find a slip on and it’s next to impossible to find a 2.25 inlet. Plenty of 2”. I just don’t want to hurt the bikes performance.

    New exhaust coating
