    Fork spring only change

    Is it nessasary to remove the forks to do this? From watching Seans video, it "looks" like you could remove cap, remove nut then remove the spacer/washer and then the spring on the bike? I understand to get the correct oil level/height the forks have to be removed. I also realize that a...

    Foot peg return spring

    Having trouble sourcing the return spring for the left foot peg on my 88 vmax Don’t see it in the part diagram. Any help would be greatly appreciated. And of course the back up option and possibly cheaper route would be to just buy another foot peg from eBay. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Can you ID this spring?

    Finished a carb cleaning/rebuild and I have one lone spring left over. It was in my 'peripheral' jar and not any of the jars for each carb so I don't think it came from anything internal to any one carb. I just noticed on the schematic that there is a spring on the choke shaft for the pair of...

    Barnett Clutch spring washers

    I've installed the Barnett clutch on my 06 Vmax a few years ago and can't for the life of me recall if the washers provided with the six springs fit easily down the tubs of the purple clutch pressure plate. I'm installing the same kit onto my 2013 Royal Star Venture and the washers seem to not...

    Rear spring rate

    So I'm thinking about a major mod and am wondering if anyone knows the spring rate for the rear shocks. This is heading for a girder fork project (which may or may not actually happen, of course), but I want to use something for mockup that I could then upgrade for the final product. There are a...

    has spring arrived for you yet?

    Not a good outlook for weekend riding in the Northeast: (but the south Florida outlook is perfect weather, 85* F outside now) As a storm runs into the warm-cool air battleground in place across the northeastern United States, areas of wintry and wet weather will occur by week’s end. “A...

    Feels like an early spring

    The weather up here this week looks as if spring is coming but I know to well how the weather plays games up here. In a week we could be back to -20 below. The weather made me think of you guys who are lucky enough to ride many more months than I (we) can up here close to Canada. I hope...

    Hose clamps spring steel type

    I had purchased some new hoses for the max. They fit well and seem of decent quality. The only problem is they do not include the spring tension clamps used on the connection from the heads. I have tried the stock clamps and they will not fit as the hoses are thicker and once you put the hose on...
