Friday morning you can see it in action on Youtube. Check the Icon website. It does get used and abused.

I was referring to the clutch cable.

Tigger doesn't have "slides". They only occur in carburetors. throttle butterflies is what we have.
My guess is that, if the return spring breaks, they can rattle open. Hence the closing cable.

Photo is kind of fuzzy but it looks like a u-nut, metric of course. A good auto parts store may carry them, maybe NAPA.

Gee, 1988 for the marlboro DR800? Do you suppose someone saw that when they created the icon designed XC? Duh, sure looks like it, don'it?

My how our tastes have changed over the years. I'm building a 70's cafe racer and trying to figure out colors. Some labels for color schemes over the years...

retro
nostalgic
dark or blackout
chrome
flourescent/dayglow
matte finish
murals, pinstripes, graphics
pearl, metalflake, metallic, cameleon

I started doing custom paint work about 1975. Anyone remember the 'van craze'? My favorite paints you cannot even buy anymore here in CA.


EDIT: BTW, the vid is cute, entertaining. thumbs! "new guy"... LOL.
