Re: left grip removal w/ pics

Yes!

My days of a bmx racer in the 80's I was taught this trick by the magazines.

I always use an air compressor to install and remove grips. Any other methods seem kind of ham-fisted to me.

Re: 39mm narrow glide hub spacer size and part numbers needed.

Thanks Lindy. I thought the new axles were metric at 25mm and not 1".

Re: 39mm narrow glide hub spacer size and part numbers needed.

I have no idea really what year my forks are. I assumed around 1996 but who knows. The fella I bought them from years back had no clue either.

Re: 39mm narrow glide hub spacer size and part numbers needed.

Yes, there are flanges. I'm unsure if a 3/4" axle would even fit my forks. I'm also unsure if there were any changes to the sliders on 39mm Showa made forks over the years as well.

It sure would...

You can buy 1" > 3/4" reducer sleeves for the bearings.

Re: 39mm narrow glide hub spacer size and part numbers needed.

Thanks. That kit looks perfect but they don't offer one for 1" spindles. I'll look around on-line for a 1" spacer kit.

Yes, I think I am over thinking this a bit. I've never dealt with a non...

Re: 39mm narrow glide hub spacer size and part numbers needed.

I am using a sealed bearing hub and 21" front wheel with an 11" rotor. The rotor bolts barely clear the front slider. This will be a tight fit I think.

Re: 39mm narrow glide hub spacer size and part numbers needed.

Just off the phone with the local Harley shop. The part numbers I listed (part #'s 43358-00 and 43617-00A) are correct for a 1" axle with a single disc hub. These spacers are not for earlier 39mm...

Non QD is just the standard non quick removal cotton spool hub.

Re: 39mm narrow glide hub spacer size and part numbers needed.

Thanks.

Being the dumb-ass I am for some reason I didn't check the spacers before I had my front wheel laced. This would be much easier to figure out if the wheel was not laced since I could get...

39mm narrow glide hub spacer size and part numbers needed.

I'm having a problem getting the correct spacing on my 39mm narrow glide front end and am hoping I can get a bit of assistance with it so I can get the proper spacers ordered. Hub is a single disc...

Re: Fastener test

I use high strength SS bolts and nuts on pretty much everything. Usually a 630 grade. Nothing has failed yet and obviously no corrosion to really worry about.

I rarely use lockwashers also.

Re: 35MM vs. 39MM front end

I have the 39mm narrow glide on my Triumph. You can get bearing retro fit kits from Lowbrow with a Timken style bearing. They fit nice with no issues.

Re: 35MM vs. 39MM front end

I went with 39mm over 35mm for aesthetics with the cleaner look and the alloy top and bottom trees like others have. Mine were off an FXR I think. I got mine dirt cheap at $250 with shaved sliders so...

Re: Angry Monkey Motorcycles '58 Triumph Build "Old Man"

Stunning.

I'm also curious about the red button/key switch.

Re: Triumph...Welded aluminum exhaust stubs

Thanks Tony. I should post a pic of my head with the welded on stubbs. I assume all is good with the head.

I'll try and remember to post a pic when I get home. P-bucket is blocked here at work.

Re: How much to cut forks down after hardtailing Trump?

What weight of fork oil are you going to use? I think 39mm Showas want a 10 weight oil but if too stiff after trying out those dampers, maybe a 5 weight oil may help.

Re: How much to cut forks down after hardtailing Trump?

I looked at the Ness dampers also but just went with the spring kit since I am only dropping 1".

The Ness dampers could not hurt and the price is reasonable enough to try.

Re: How much to cut forks down after hardtailing Trump?

3" is quite a drop.

There are off the shelf lowering kits that just drop in but I'm unsure if any of the kits available go lower than a 2" drop.

I just did the same and dropped my 39mm narrow...

Re: Triumph "special". 1970/1973 hard tail build.

The rims are Morad that I got a few years back. Quality is OK, not as nice as Excel but the price was right so I bought them. Buchanan turned them around pretty quickly also. I think it took about 3...

Re: Triumph "special". 1970/1973 hard tail build.

Wheels are back but now I'm broke so I'll get to mounting the oil and gas tank.

18" in the rear and a 21" up front.

Re: Japanese custom built from scratch

I saw a lot more bikes in the show pics that were not as nice as the bike in question. I think the bike is fabulous. Diifferent strokes and all that jazz.
