Be careful with those 2-stroke power bands. I hear they can 'snap' and throw you right off the bike...

...just like front brakes... which is why HD stopped installing functional ones.

kalecoauto also carries muffler bearings and blinker fluid, and a variety of other hard to find parts. You might even find a new chain and sprocket set for your FJR.

There used to be a kid that hung out at our local Yamaha shop that was always telling people about his RD250 with "full race cams." I don't know if anyone ever told him or not. For all I know he's still out there somewhere talking about them.

Just keepin' up with traffic, Officer.

Just found out this morning I'm getting low on Tartan Paint, so better stock up. I have Grinder Sparks in a tin box too.

I only use actual oe parts, the aftermarket parts aren’t as good because they’re just cheap copies.

Well sure. And if that after-market power band were to let go, there's not telling the damage it could do.

Russ, as I get older I forget stuff. Thanks for the reminder, I remembered they were around eventually. The selection's good but there's still the odd thing they don't seem to have.
