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
So Mathew, Thanks for the answer to the question. I am amazed you could provide it without my bio, year and make of the old piece of scrap iron i'm working on ,and yea, not every old pile of junk had them so thanks! How's the shoulder??? Where's Spence this winter??? So many questions, so few answers...M
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.
p.s.- i still have no idea of what you are looking for. but if you find it, post a picture and educate me.
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.
Funny, i have never played well with others...seem to miss the rules of the game...probably why i enjoy racing so much...very clear where i need to be and what needs doing. That said thanks for the info, and i forgot to mention, i am a cranky old sonofabitch. Mike
