  1. Another update to this post...I know, not on here much but still doing the starter clutches. Price has now gone to $435.00 with the gaskets included and still shipping back to you. The good ol' Pacific takes it time to get stuff over here, right now it's a 3-4 week ship time til I receive the parts from Yammamama. Direct email is the best contact danob11@comcast.net
  2. If this is for '22 count me in, be glad to hit KY for a bit
  3. Welcome back Steve, know what you went thru, mine was just an 8 point buck I gave a ride to. Quit takin' the prozac the doc stuck me on a couple yrs ago, now gettin' my brain back into wanting to ride more. Good luck in getting your riding legs back under ya!
  4. Try having the 2020 NEC in force in 2 cities around Indy. AFCI and GFCI on perty much everything. Increases your service install by $700 your cost...plus availability.
  5. I remember now...! That little wire was put in there to help "direct and drive" the oil to come up thru that spinning bolt head as the center of the crankshaft is open and a bit pressurized with oil flow. IF that pesky memory serves me somewhat right...
  6. Beer keg lifting device???😅
  7. Happy Bday to ya Carl, you made it another one and I'm crossing that line this coming Sunday,,,who'da thunk we'd all still be around...
  8. That would be the same as someone needing my top level electrical experience...how do you say no? Especially since I quit takin' that damned Prozac the doc had me on for 7-1/2 years...now I can get back into ridin' more again, just broke 11k on the replacement
  9. I will keep my 7 with Firefox and Moziller till it quits, then I'll go back to keepin' sh*t on paper. Oh yeah, still got my ol' laptop from 93 and W3.2 that still runs the AB500 PLC program that's still in use around the globe...
  10. If ya get rollin' to the eastcoast it'd be nice to say hey!
  11. I know what you're sayin',,, got a '77 IT400 with a perty fresh top end and just picked up a DT400. WHY???!
  12. got mine in the mail last week. Looks good and keeps our brother out there.
  13. My sorrow goes out to you and yours, I can not imagine what that would do to me
  14. That's one of the reasons I loved my '84, sooo easy to pop that front wheel whenever you wanted to...also one of the reasons I got the 2nd gen back in'10.....
  15. One of those would be me Big Tom...
  16. Prayers still goin' for brother Bob & best half Becky.
  17. Just an update on this process as some newer folks are checkin' into this.... As Yamaha has discovered, they're selling a bunch of these so the price of the parts have increased greatly... The total cost nowadays to VR.org members is $385, includes the starter clutch, new 72tooth gear, all 3 gaskets needed and return shipping to you Of course we do these for folks around the world, so'z if you're not in the good ol' USA then your shipping would be more. Any questions email me at danob11@comcast.net or just PM me on here, I get the "PM received" notifications Thanx, Dano
  18. Same out to you from here ol' buddy,,,prayers out to you and yours
  19. Sittin' in the living room (12 yrs old) watchin' it on the BIG 19'r black and white TV...still a clear memory (of which I don't have much of anymore) of watching the whole thing
  20. So sorry to hear of your loss 'Bum, I myself lost a long time friend on Friday who was very "instrumental" in the local rock&roll industry, he was a DJ at the big niteclub I built and ran the sound and "dance floor litin' " in when I moved here in '79,,,his was a heart attack. And last nite at Indianapolis Speedrome during the racing we had a car owner/old driver go down with a stroke,,, Damn its ruff out here anymore And I DO love that he rebuilt the classic Austin-Healeys,,,and I'm one of those guys that'll do whatever to a car "just because I can".....
  21. Thoughts and prayers continue on for Bob and Becky, don't like to see friends go thru this...
  22. As a long time member here and quite knowledgeable 'bout these motors, of course you both have the starter clutch upgrade done by Squeeze and myself (Morleys sells 'em!) installed on your bikes already,,,right??! BTW, if'n you want the best and most buildable 1200 v4,,,then find an early VIN Venture from '83 and youse will have the reason why the VMax was built. The first six months these bikes were out there Yammamamma figured they was too quick for these 750lb bikes so they detuned the crap out of them. I had an 84 that I rebuilt totally, checked and freshened the engine, back-cut the second gear dog and slot, put 'er back together and she would pull the front tire anytime you wanted. There's also one of us down NC way that'll race any 2wheeler that pulls up next to him on his '85, but he wins 'cause he'll go over 150+ and they won't... Perty good background history is why we do what we do to these things... And that's also why I moved up to a 2nd Gen when I turned 52 because who knows when that sucker wants to go all the way over when you pop that front tire up...
