  1. Hey, sorry I missed out, I completely forgot about this thread. I was out of town for about 7 weeks, my mother passed, so things slipped by. Sorry to not get the gloves but I am happy they found a good home.
  2. Hey Dave, I am a Held guy. Have worn "Steve's" forever, and have a pair of Phantom's as well. Never really seen the Rodney, how long is the gauntlet? Are they totally vented on the top as well? I will offer you $60 for them. Let me know what you think. Thanks.
  3. No, I forgot to take them. But two of the bars broke right in the middle. Strong pipe that Two Brothers makes!
  4. Yeah, I got my deposit back, no problem. I needed to open the pipe .25 inches, I got maybe 3mm. I was wondering today if it might have been easier if I ran the bike after removing the muffler to heat up the pipe. Know it would have been LOUD while warming up but may have worked better. Oh well, off to look for a gasket...
  5. So, I borrowed the pipe expander from an O'Reilly's near me. It kind of worked. Ended up breaking two of the bars on the expander. Whoops. Gonna look for a gasket.
  6. Thanks. I will give it a try.
  7. When I bought my Bird the previous owner had installed a Four Brothers 4 into 1 exhaust. I needed to replace the can and Four Brothers no longer makes a model that would fit. I ended up ordering a Yoshimura that works but does not quite fit. The issue is the neck of the muffler is bigger than the pipe going into it. I have struggled with how to seal it. I debated about getting a heat wrap but I do not want to go that route and have to cover the entire pipe. I have used aluminum foil around the pipe, and slid the can down onto it, and that works, but not for long. I have had t
  8. I got this in 2013 at a benefit auction for $7500. It was valued at the time at $10,000. Financial issues are causing me to look to sell it. I believe the piece is currently valued in the $20,000 to $25,000 range, but not positive. I am open to reasonable offers. It is called "Spring" and it is derived from another work of hers, "Band of Brothers." It is called "bastard art" because it is many different mediums, lithography, painting, drawing, all covered in lacquer. It is 24" x 24" X 2". It is signed by the artist on the back, and there is a book of he
  9. I don't think they were lying to me. The right light was not nearly as bright as the left light when not engaged as a turn signal. It was probably about half as bright as the left one. I have been taking my bike to this shop for over 10 years. They installed my Penske and my Race Tech front fork springs, as well as all tune ups. I have never felt like I was taken advantage of or given false information. My signal is working just fine now, they did not need to order new parts, so I am happy. And $80 was not that steep for me.
  10. Topic Update I replaced the left turn signal bulb and it worked perfectly. No problems. I decided that since I bought a package of two lights I would change the right bulb to make them consistent. Bad idea! After removing the mirror and putting the new bulb in the flashing element would not work. The bulb would be on for normal running but when I engaged the turn signal the front did not flash and the rear flashed really fast. I switched bulbs to see if that was the problem and it was not. Shit! Just got back from the shope
  11. Yeah, gonna get right on that...
  12. I did not think it was a dual filament, I thought it was a single filament. I probably have a spare bulb laying around, I will try that first. Thanks for the ideas.
  13. I am having an issue with my left front turn signal. For a while my turn signals did not start flashing the first time I engaged the toggle. I figured it was just an old bike (I have an '02 Bird) and since they still worked I ignored it. Just recently my left front blinker will not come on when the turn signal is not engaged. The right one works fine and is on all the time. The left one only comes on when the turn signal is engaged, otherwise it is dark. Any ideas for an easy fix or what the problem may be? I am not a great mechanic or electrician and probably just
  14. Problem resolved. Not a perfect fit to the header but I can make it work with some tie wire. Not as loud as the Two Brothers, either.
