Found it in the dark on the 1150 with tourances - no fun picking that one up on a steep slope (although this was a couple of months ago). The locals knew about it but no one wanted to say who or what...

I've used the sahara 3 (or 4's when I could get them) for a long time on the g/s. They stick real nice and when they let go, they are nice and predictable. Someone once told me years ago they were...

I bought a set back in ~96-97 and they were close to $200 then. If someone were to make some repros I'd be in for another set.

Unless you are going to do some early big valve conversion, you are not talking about a significant increase in power. +5-8hp? It really comes down to how bad do you want the extra power. Take you...

Ride it for a few months before you decied you "need" anything. Stock r80 is pretty sweet. Ok, Harrison, fork springs, 100gspd skid plate kit (same as r80g/s pd and available for +/- $100).
