Hi Bill and welcome :welcome: :welcome: :welcome:chenner said:I absolutely love "cruising" and there's no going back to sportbikes for me after this!
thanks!...sounds great.....My bud in Hamilton is buying my sporty so I will find out the rest....chenner said:thanks stomper, and yes Patm made the entire thing a breeze. seriously, with his help everything was a walk in the park. i don't know why more people don't buy their HD's from the states.
Nos-Dan, Patm is the man to speak to about the procedure and what's needed but let me answer your immediate questions. i called HD Buffalo and they are not allowed to sell new bikes to canadians. plus, since you would have to pay their sales tax and then ours as well it may not be as beneficial.
to get a safety in ontario you are required to convert the speedo over to kph. i was quoted around $500. luckily my sportbike shop safetied it anyway and the guy from canadian tire doing the inspection said he'd write it was in km as well.
when you get your bike let me know and we'll hook up for a ride. maybe we'll do a central meet where stomper and everyone else can join us.
does anybody know of any other aftermarket vendors that make parts for our bike? i saw the kuryakin stuff but wouldn't mind even more selection.RaderDX said:The skull axel caps look great...There is also a skull horn cover that would look good too.....vivid black with red skull........may put one on my DX. I just bought new Kuryakin pegs today.....gonna take them apart, rough up the chrome and paint them black....then put the rubber back in them. I am not going to powder coat them since I can't seem to stop dragging them on the freeway ramps here...I have gotten pegs that are 4.5 inches long (about 1" longer than the little stock pegs) so I can get my right leg far enough from the pipes to stop burning it. The Kuryakin pegs are as a group good looking and you can remove the rubber inserts for painting or powder coating...Also you can buy replacement rubber inserts when the old ones get worn....they have matching grips, shift pegs and brake pedal pads too.....Give you some continuity of look....
Have fun making it yours!!!
