Finally getting my tuggie back together. All I need are a few more parts to get him back on the road.

Right rider peg
12 header
Bar ends
S fly screen
Lss stock one
Exhaust straps

Any help would be appreciated. I have some extra parts that I have collected from all my recent bulk buys.

Oh yeah I have not even spent half of the insurance money. Got a lot if good deals. Gear is hopefully going to be gifted for Christmas from family. Just have to decide what I want. I may look at the headers in the future. I like the way the stock ones look but we will see once I get your pipe on there.

Do you recommend any straps? I have seen some use them and others not.

Yeah icon vest worked pretty good but would of been nicer to not have any rash.

They sure are nice. I lightly sanded and resprayed them and the bolts to match.
It is a keda or dean Adams. Whichever you want to call it. I still have to clean up the underside before mounting. Tomorrow it will be on. Just have to figure out turning and get the swing arm changed out.

Yeah the black anodizing on the bars was piss poor quality.  Out of the package they had some flaws


Hope you saw the 2 washers go on the back 2 mounting screws, the ones closest to the rider

Yes, use the stock 1/2 moon bracket and both straps at the back end. That's one of the first versions of that pipe and those tabs were just extra insurance to keep it in place. I did a slight design change 2 pipes later I think.

Yeah I put the washers on the side closest to the rider. I guess that is just what we get aftermarket but oh we'll nothing a little time can't fix.

Dean thanks I will be sure to find some straps I have the half moon. Although I probably will have to find some stock bolts. Still can't wait.

I have a rightside peg here, brand new. I broke my left peg and had to buy a pair to get the one. $20 shipped. Pm your address if you want it.

Didn't know you crashed. Glad that you're ok. Bike's coming along. My Buell lives on in yours. That's kind of neat and makes me happy if you care.
