  1. ALL of the lines are to be replaced with after market SS ones. Just ordered them yesterday (Galfer). Compressed air isn't a problem as are "Q" tips. I have some alcohol used in auto body work to prep plastic bumper covers. Not sure what % it is, but should work well. Thanks all for the advice.
  2. Brake and clutch master cylinders will be removed , paint stripped and housings polished. Old brake fluid looks pretty nasty in them. Don't want to damage internals so what solvent is best to clean them out? Brake clean? Wax & grease remover? Not rebuilding them, just want them flushed out real good.
  3. Good one! Although I never had a pet fish let alone a talking fish friend . A few early on girl friends did kinda smell that way though. Oh and my Dad's name isn't Stan.
  4. I actually wasn't sure if he'd charge shipping . Just checked my bank account and NO tax and NO shipping fee! $153.90 for both shipped to my door. Nice. I'm more interested in going as quickly as possible, especially at the drag strip not so much about top speed, so lowered the gearing a bit with the 47 tooth.
  5. I ordered the stealth versions with the colored alum center section. Craig told me list was $146.95. I told him I was a shop hired to customize a "customer's" XX and he then said he'd charge me "shop" price which was $106.95. Said the one for the XX was going to have to be manufactured since none were in stock for the spec I wanted. Said it would be at least 3 weeks before I received it. Said he had an all black model in stock ( I originally ordered a blue one). He said if I bought that one he'd sell it to me for $76.95. I figured I could just paint the center section the same blue as the bike so problem solved. Plus it would be the exact same color as the bike. I said since I had him on the phone could he see what was available for my 2016 1250 Bandit. So I'm getting one with a red center ( bike is the same red as the '01 XX) and again at the reduced price. Awesome!
  6. After debating between a Vortex alum. rear sprocket and the suggested use of the "Supersprox" item, after some homework on the subject was completed Supersprox won out. A bit pricy, but I was able to make a deal with an employee named "Craig" (763) 255-2536 at Supersprox headquarters . Ordered a 47 tooth for the XX and a 45 tooth for the Bandit. Killer deal of $76.95 each. SWEET! Spread the word.
  7. Ummm, gee, sorry 'bout that. I've been away from this site for so long I still need some time to acclimate myself and get a refresher course on the wide variety of personalities here. As you were..............
  8. Got in touch with Jaws in the UK again after I saw even higher EBC HH pad prices on ebay. Since I'm ordering a windshield from them they gave me a nice price of $90.34 for all 3 sets. She said she'd ship them in the large box the shield will be in so no shipping charge. These are EBC HH pads. Since the bike only has 13,125 miles on it, I wouldn't be surprised if they are the original pads, perhaps the second set. Pretty worn down. Pulled all three calipers off today and cleaned the hell out of them. Got some ugly looking brownish-orange sludge out of them. Yuck. Ordering all new stainless brake lines soon. Figured I'd use what ever type brake fluid Honda recommends. What's a couple hundred more dollars on this project. Geez!
  9. Discovered just today my project '01 XX is in need of new brake pads front & rear. Looked up what OEM ones cost through a discount on line Honda dealer. Jeez, not exactly cheap at $36.10 for a rear set and $36.77 for each side in the front plus shipping. Jaws in England sells EBC sintered (?) pads for $30.77 for each set plus shipping from England. Sintered pads to me sounds like aggressive pads that'll chew up rotors and will possibly cause brake squeal which is unacceptable! Any advice which brand and type is recommended for that OEM feel and performance is appreciated. Stock stopping performance is just fine for me. Steve
  10. Looking to buy a used but complete and readable HONDA service manual that will apply to my 2001 XX. Dirty cover or pages fine, just need to be able to view pics and read. Thanks Steve
  11. Additionally what's nice about these is that if a suitable position can't be had by rotating the pegs as they are now pictured, the extra bracket and hardware gives even more adjustability by not just rotation, but with sliding the peg up or down on the extra bracket. Steve
  12. Obviously, here are pics of the adjustable pegs I removed from my XX.
  13. My most recent purchase of an XX came with aftermarket , alum., adjustable front foot pegs. Excellent condition with an additional section which allows the foot rest part to be even lower if needed/wanted. They utilize the factory spring and alum. pin so they swivel like the original ones. I just prefer stock ones that match the rear ones and besides, at 5'7" my legs aren't long enough to need them. No idea what they sell for new but I figure $35 + shipping is a fair price.
