You have eyes like a hawk - Yes, I lowered it because I have a 30" inseam and were swinging both feet when at a stop.

Thanks, I thought the same thing. I ride the bike pretty hard and have bottomed out the travel in the front with no problems.

I put a Kuba link in first and didn't like the chopper effect so I dropped the front in a bit and got my control back.

The headlight stuff is just a byproduct of suspension mods. The little headlight brackets were just to aim the light. The rear tank bag on the front was to keep wieght close to the triples and off the fender. In fact its bolted to the lower triple.

To recap - I'm pretty silly and I do get screwy but the suspension is great!

I love seeing a hammer in a rebuild picture!

I once posted a picture with hammer in a cam follower replacement on my old VW mk1 race car. People loved it. It was very VW.

Cdogg44, I found one on ebay but the seller broke it taking it off the motor!

I am having hard time locating one in stock anywhere.....I will PM you to see if you might be able to help out.

Thanks!

$70 from Hondapartshouse.com. Have you tried your local dealer? Part number is 22121-MBN-670. Also, while you have it apart, the clutch bushing replace is a good idea, unless you have already done the upgrade OR the bike is new(after 02?)

I will try Hondapartshouse for sure. Called all local dealers, none in stock. I have tried numerous online OEM parts sellers, and even called a few, none are available. I have a back order pending but still looking. One online seller had one available, but it sold, and any others would be back ordered (who know when any will arrive).

But, I will try every source I can, this is hanging up my XRR build for a ride in October. Thanks!

Yeah, I looked on cheapcycleparts.com and they said it was on back order also. HPH didnt say it was on back order but it may very well be. Give them a try. Also search craigslist, you never know what you will find.

Never mind the hammer Ceebee,

explain why you got/had two cranks? Rods seem to be different too.
I mean, if you were after turning it into a twin you're doing it wrong


Lurve the comments here, "very VW"
