    Holy shit! That guy has a pinch-bolt fetish. Who in hell wants to tighten that many?

    Fork up-grade

    this ebay listing gives the impression they could make you triple clamps (yoke) to fit most any type of usd forks; https://www.ebay.com/itm/Honda-Blackbird-Thug-Style-Billet-Fork-Yokes-to-fit-USD-front-end-Triple-Trees/162661803454?hash=item25df6625be:g:rV8AAOSwvYZZoY~v

    http://www.cbr1100xx.org/forums/index.php?/topic/77739-zxxx-bolt-on-pathway/&tab=comments#comment-908818 PM if you have any questions... *EDIT* No telling if the '15 forks are the same dimensionally, but if so, the combination of triples in the above-referenced post should work.
  6. Thanks. I figured ship to FFL, but wasn't sure. Good luck with your bidding. Most just sat and not shot in awhile and some are new in the box (NIB). I just got them all out and cleaned and oiled once a month. They were stored in the anti-rust paper, like machine shops use to protect their work. Auctioneer is conservative in his ratings. "Like NIB". In most cases they are in fact NIB. No rounds put thru them. P226 9mm, SEAL commerative, I bought and put away. So NIB. Already mentioned the R51. My lazy...the WWII 1911, just to cumbersome to strip down and cle

    Fork up-grade

    That bike was torn apart in his copious shop space last time I visited. A PM might get his attention, he's not around here much.
  8. Icepicks bike had zx1400 forks and wheels. Got to ride it for a bit after NeXXt14. I enjoyed it a lot. Brake upgrades were nice and he had a set of dan moto bars on it making it very comfy.
  9. The auction guys came back to me and said they would ship to a FFL. So goody for that. I'll be bidding on some things.
  10. Any forks can be with the right mods, but I don't know the answer you probably want.
  11. OMG

    Fork up-grade

    I think I can get a fork assembly from a '15 ZX1400. Any ideas whether they can be adapted to the Bird? Seems I remember the older ones have been.
  12. Just ride it till the wheels fall off. 110 link, 530 size, KY lube all good. As mentioned above the front oem was rubber dampened. The XX is so smooth and quite that you hear stuff normally drowned out by mechanical noises, wind, screaming... Enjoy the trip Phil, we need to catch up one day. Drink some good beer, have a good cigar and enjoy the moment.

    Chain Question

    There are many regional and seasonal gas specs so it depends. Couple years ago on annual ski trip in February I alternated between 87 and 89 Oct. E10 vs. 87 Oct. E0 on I80 in Iowa and Nebraska. There was no measurable difference. Car 2014 Volvo with 3.2 atmo engine, speeds 80-85mph.
  14. I would be interested seeing the difference between good gas and the garbage I have to use.
  15. It's nice that they could dial out that teeny flat spot.
  16. The stock gaskets back there are pretty thick. Have you tried those?
  17. Or I have a brain that can't tune out noises....
  18. If you can hear it you're not riding hard or fast enough, just saying
  19. Dumping the unused ones and, well some I haven't used, for instance the Remington R51, I bought it and looked it over and saw how cumbersome the cleaning would have been, to me. Put it back in box and onto the shelf. Not sure on shipping. I guess a call to Kaufmans would be in order. There will be a second auction sometime. I noticed not all my things were included in this one. Auctioneer said he is putting my gun cases, ammo, etc with another auction. Presume it is to flesh it out.

    Chain Question

  21. I thought I gave you a copy of the maintenance record, but I'll pull it and e-mail it to you if you PM the address. The chain should still be good given the Pro-Oiler, but I don't know if time affects chains. For a couple years I did very little riding. Yeah, the dampened sprocket makes a huge difference. I was too unnerved listening to the ticking noise of the aftermarket sprocket.
  22. Mine was a 2000. I spent a day in a dyno room tuning out the very minor problem and tweaking top end power. We confirmed the slight lean spot using the dyno, and added fuel. It really was tiny though, and maybe I just got lucky to occasionally want the throttle and RPM at just exactly the place that makes it noticeable. Either way though, it's not something I would have spent money to fix at all. The dyno day and the programmer were free, so they could use my bike for testing.
  23. I few items in there I would like to bid on. But I can't tell if Kaufman is going to do shipping. The only thing I can find is a post auction pick up location.
  24. Are all of those yours? Are you selling everything you have or just some 'extra' ones? That's a hell of a collection if they're all yours. Great time to turn metal into cash....if your metals are in the forms of guns & ammo.
  25. I used the old bearing as a protective layer above the new tapered bearing and then used the centre from my 2 tonne axle stands as a drift, fitted nicely and didn't seem to mine the 4lb lump hammer I smacked it with.
  26. With the 18t the bike is probably going faster than what the speedo reads, and farther than the odometer reads, so your actual MPG is probably higher than calculated.
