  1. Here's another option. I had the rear portion of the stock seat covered with a gloss black material and the front was finished as a solo seat. The work was done by Sargent in Jacksonville. The bike was built by a member here who wrecked it and sold it to me. I rebuilt it and changed a few things around and resold it.
  2. Have you seen this one? https://www.cbrxx.com/threads/2000-titanium-blackbird.49457/
  3. The 2007 DODGE SRT8 is not available in all wheel drive... 2 breweries within a mile of the lot!
  4. I'm listing 3 vehicles from the lot that I think might be of interest to someone here. These are sold from a licensed NYS dealership after going through our shop, with a state inspection and with a 6 month, 7500 warranty. No sales tax collected from out of state buyers. Temporary tags available with your insurance. The warranty is good Nationwide and can be extended as well as its coverage expanded. Shipping is on you, or do a fly-drive or I might deliver for expenses. 1. 2007 Chrysler Aspen Limited Edition, all wheel drive, 4.7 liter Hemi, tow package, heated cloth power seats....just under 50,000 miles! 20" wheels, roof rack, tinted glass, full power, beautiful condition Aspen's are built on a full frame. As equipped, the towing capacity is pretty darn high. It seats 2 in the front, 3 in the middle and 3 in the rear. Silver exterior with gray cloth interior. $10,995.00 2. 2008 Infinity G37X coupe, red with gray leather, upgraded Journey package, automatic trans, only 44,950 miles. These are great to drive and run forever. The allure here is the low mileage. $12,995.00 3. 2007 Dodge Charge SRT-8 with 71,915 miles, red exterior with gray/black interior. This is a reasonably rare car that has a 6.1 liter Hemi, brembo brakes, special factory suspension, DVD, navigation, high end factory stereo, sunroof. I had this sold to a buyer from New Mexico who after 50 pictures, 30 texts and 10 phone calls over 2 weeks, decided he couldn't buy a red car...:( $13,995.00 Get in touch if you have any questions. Thanks for looking. Hank
  5. Road 4's aren't available but were great tires... Currently on Road 5's...equally great but Michelins are pricey! Wore out my Angel GT's in 6000 miles and they rode like shit...very stiff sidewall.
  6. Joe, send me all the info on the vehicle and the rear...
  7. Teds road racing background led him to build a tool that was very quick to install and check alignment. It was in his truck at every race and made it easy to verify wheel alignment after sprocket changes or chain adjustment. I screwed up not getting one from him when he was selling them. Today, the tool would need a redesign to fit wider tires but it self centers by virtue of the design and is quick and accurate. It could easily be upgraded with a lazer and a couple sights.
  8. A road racer named Ted Henter made a wheel alignment tool back around 1980. It worked on the same principal as Reds lazer. The lazer would be a logical upgrade to Teds tool. Here's a link showing the tool and an description: https://books.google.com/books?id=m0o1ii_30AkC&pg=RA1-PA98&lpg=RA1-PA98&dq=ted+henter+motorcycle+wheel+alignment+tool&source=bl&ots=BQD6uQnN1O&sig=C3Dr_wCFcL8fubsp11a_MTdtdd4&hl=en&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiOzuL7rNTeAhWx1FkKHYOAC-gQ6AEwCXoECAwQAQ#v=onepage&q=ted henter motorcycle wheel alignment tool&f=false Checking alignment of the wheels shows up frame problems, fork problems, all kinds of stuff . Checking that the chain is aligned on the sprockets or that the swing arm pivot is parallel with the rear axle doesn't address these important points.
  9. How did you make out with the Carra bearing spacers?

      Thank you. I had the wrong idea. Sounds like I need to put it back together and use a depth gauge? Did you find it to be short? Is that why you turned a new inner spacer? 



      No, to long...the shoulder protruded past the inner race. tightening up the axle would allow the inner bearings to turn on the shoulder...the spacing of the bearings was fine but I wanted to maintain stock axle torque and the Carra instructions said cut it in half...NG with the turbo

      I got the feeling you are confused about the overall idea of why I did what I did??



      The overall length of the inner spacer was fine. The bearing spacing was fine.

      The shoulder that sticks thru the bearing was to long. The spacer was aluminum.

      I remade it out of SS to stock dimensions except the shoulder was shortened to .010"

      less the the thickness of the bearings inner race.
      All spacers from Carra had the shoulders to long and inner dimensions to sloppy to suit me.

      That red anodized one looked like shit and was loose too.
      I remade all the spacers and polished the ones you could see.

  10. Cal, get Joe to send those spacers to you. The red anodized one was supplied by Carra and installs on the brake side. You will be able to see how they assemble once they are in front of you. I can then explain the dimensions I changed.
  11. Joe, I'll look thru my bike stuff but I'm sure I gave you every BB part I had except a very low mileage 03 swing arm and a complete cherry 97-98 cylinder head, cams and valve cover.. Let u know in a day or 2.
  12. Put my name on those Tim and Thanks!!! I'll pm you my address. Still waiting to hear if your daughter is going to Stevens...
  13. Carra spec'd half the torque value on the rear axle due to possibly crushing the Carra POS 6061 alum wheel and bearing spacers. In addition, the shoulder that went through the bearing was to long, not capturing the inner race. I just didn't think cutting rear axle torque in half was a good idea with 255HP and 155 lbs TQ was safe, so I redid all spacers. Never had a drawing, just worked off the old spacers and new wheel. As far as the wheels go, there were 2 rear designs. The first one had a sprocket carrier which bolted to the wheel. This was prone to failure. The second was a one piece design and worked well.
  14. Tell Joe to look for a baggie with wheel bearings and a red anodized spacer among other spacers. I replaced the Carra spacers with custom SS stuff, made to proper dimensions so the bearing stack actually worked...lol
  15. Cal, Matt is in the armed forces serving overseas. I haven't heard from him in a year. Joe has all the stock spacers from my Carra's.. I gave him all my BB parts a couple years ago. IIRC, they were stock dimensions but I built the turbo around 06-07
