Does anyone have a source for the ribbed tank rubbers that attach to the frame?? I could use a piece of rubber hose, but the ribbed ones look better. Thx, Mike

1st: Fill out your location bio

2nd: what bike? (make and model)

3rd: what year?

you do know those rubbers you speak of did not come on every single bike - in fact they are kind of bike specific. The bikes I have them on are kawasakis but I have seen them on suzukis and hondas of various years.

I should point out here that not every manufacturer uses the same diameter tubing in their frames....

Lets see, i live in Maine, USofA The bike is a Yam 71 RT-1, custom f-glass tank and seat / tail section,The frame tubing is 3/4 inch. I am not speaking of the bike specific rubbers, but the ones i often see on race bikes with custom frames . Building a cafe, metralla style bike by the way. thx, M

mike,

matt might know you, but others do not.....like me, for one.

as a way of fostering more community and making a better, tighter site, we ask if the members fill out their bio/profile to include a first name and a town and state of where they are from. extra info as in bikes, likes, hobbies, etc are an added bonus.

i see that you have been with us for awhile, try not to take anything to personal.

tex

p.s.- i still have no idea of what you are looking for. but if you find it, post a picture and educate me.

yo dude

i still cannot remember where ... wait a minute.. there was a company making reproductions for rubbers for parillas etc ... i am sure they have these as well.... also could contact m3 racing, buff harsh too. i would pretty much just make something else work. i hate sending bro's money for stuff like that.

what are you thinking... no bio... dude, cmon

the shoulder is rockin, basically doing pt... doc says no surfing until the end of feb... skateboarding a bit... without bailing... pretty much have to stick everything. should be moto racing w no problems... although my sidecar maonkiing days are looking pretty much over...( wife ain't having it after a few months of my limited help with 2 kids)

spencer is in maine, finishing up some design jobs... i am sure he will be on his way to surf in hawaii within a couple of weeks....... maybe not.... one can never tell.

Dude, you can get snippy about what ever you like but there are two unwritten rules (mostly because we are too lazy to fill out the FAQ) that just make life a lot easier:

1 - is to fill out your location in the bio, doesn't have to get any more specific than the state but the idea is that if there is some close to you they may have some insight on local events or they may be able to help you out with something else.

2 - if you post in technical it is customary to state the year, make, and model of the bike. we cater to all types of bikes here and even a general question may have some bike specific answers. Furthermore it is always better to err on the side of too much info here rather than not enough when it comes to looking for things or products searches or whatnot.

that being said - welcome to the board (again), glad to see you becoming more active.

"although my sidecar maonkiing days are looking pretty much over...( wife ain't having it after a few months of my limited help with 2 kids)"

Matt- say it ain't so. Those things don't go very well with only 1 person on them. I'm gonna be bummed all day

Sorry Mike, didn't mean to hijack your thread. Potential bad news will do that to a person
