I have used Kreem on a set of new pipes and they stayed clear . Gotta be new, or super clean .danno are those the original header pipes ? the new emgo ones on my bike only have about 100 miles and are already turning blue (cheap chrome?) ..how many miles on your bike?
The covers aren't in the '73 brochure pics and they're not listed in the '73 parts book.Something else I noticed I'm missing, from looking at the brochure pics, are the black plastic caps for the bottoms of the clocks. Someone must have disposed of them earlier in the bike's life.
Thanks for that tip on the seal. I was searching the forums for alternative lubes and found this:I don't think I would put ATF in the gearbox, it's pretty thin. Go to NAPA and ask for an SKF 9815 seal. It will solve the kickstarter shaft leak. You have to remove the retaining ring to install it. Just a bit of heat and it will pop right out.
Thanks, Les. Nothing's going on it that it didn't come from the factory with, so that search is over.The covers aren't in the '73 brochure pics and they're not listed in the '73 parts book.
I thought about the purple, too, but it wasn't a stock color in '73. I still have the fiberglass Roadster setup that came off the SS Clone. Now you got me thinkin'.....Danno, your bike looks great.
I had a metalflake Roman Purple for a short time years ago, but your bike just trounces it.
Hope it goes as good as it looks
