I got a reply from an industrial source yesterday. Now, I need to figure out how to order and pay for them.
And find the tiny pull rivets.

Modified damper-less version vibrates significantly less, only notable vibration of any kind is now at idle, but even there its still below what it was with the damper. BMW normally hardmounts them as well.

The orange Honda 360 CL in the back ground was my first real road bike. Care to part with it? Memory serves me right it was a 1 hour ride bike. after 1 hour at 65 your hands were numb from the vibes. Did have a 6 speed I think.

Does it run?

Sadly that's not mine, although I covet it as well. I share shop space with a couple of friends. My first was a CB400-T, but I always wanted high-pipes.

Well damn! Kinda disappointed.

Mounted a new set of Anakee 3's today on the R1150 and just not what I expected.

They are pretty rough riding, for a 90/10 tire, and very, very noisy. The TKC 80's I took off were as smooth, at speed, and not near as loud at all speeds. I know they were balanced perfectly so I know that is not the issue. They are just a vibrat'ey, noisy tire.

I don't know. I love Michelin and have run them for years on most my bikes but these are, well,,,,,,not what I expected. After reading many reviews I was convinced they were the next great rode/gravel tire. The handling is great and they hold a line extremely well but......................damn.

The wait was to long and since my dealer is unable to properly sync, I just bought a twinmax. Really wanted a harmonizer, bugger

After over a month long separation, I finally brought her home today from a dealer 1000mi away. The brakes seized up on my out on the CDT and we wrecked pretty good. Basically everything that touched the ground was replaced.

New final drive finally landed from Germany, so I installed it today.

While it was on the lift I noticed a bit of oil weeping between the engine block and the transmission case, on the bottom. So looks like I will be splitting her in half this winter for seal replacement. I love a bike that needs me ;)

Shoulder is good, thanks for asking. Surgery supposedly cuts recovery time in half and I hope to go back to full duty in another week.

I did ride the bike home. I flew up to the dealer yesterday and rode 300 miles yesterday and 700 today. It felt great to be riding again after a month off, but my rear end insists I get a Russell seat before anymore long distance riding

I flew to Las Vegas and rode it home. 464 miles in 7 1/2 hours. Dodged desert monsoon rains/flash floods and high winds. What a hoot!
