looking for parts

hello guys, insurance decided not to total the bike out (which is awesome!) and cut me a check. i'm now looking for the following parts. please pm, post a link, etc if you know of anything for a decent price. i figure the two things i'll likely have to pay full price for is the rear cowl and tank but if i can shave some money off of that, it'd be awesome! thank you!

rear cowl matte black (small scratches are ok)
gas tank matt black (small dings, scratches are ok)
stock handlebar (preferribily with stock inner bar weights)
kick stand
foot brake lever
front turn signals (left is needed but will take both if i can)
rear swing arm
rear hugger
cluster housing
left head lamp bracket

I have an excellent condition 919 gauge cluster (from my '03 with 13,000 on the gauge)..... I've been on the fence about selling it because if I ever sold my bike, I'd want to take off the Koso digital gauge and sell the bike stock. I've done sooo much to the bike now, I just don't see myself selling it.

....... In order to install the Koso though, I wanted to make it plug 'n play.....so I cut off the OEM gauge connector. (You can see it in the picture.....there is still quite a bit of wire left to reconnect) You could either buy one.....or you may still have that plug from your existing gauge? A new plug and some soldering and you'll be good to go. I also have a near new set of OEM foot brackets......I went with the SATO's.....

Send me an offer if you're interested in anything, I want to buy a new large touring windshield for the 9'er.

many thanks artic, i dont need the gauges themselves, i just need the housing. i dont think you're willing to separate the two correct?

the rearsets look nice. the price of a brake lever OEM is insane! if i can get one or both for a decent price i'll jump on it. i dont know how much a new touring windshield is but perhaps i could help towards that fund lol. i'll send a PM

I don't mind helping you out..... I'm not looking for top dollar on the gauge. I'm sure we can arrive at a price that we'll both be happy with.

I received your first PM.......I just sent a second one.

Try PinWall Cycle parts.They have parted two 919's in the last few months and still have a bunch of stuff left. I picked up a few pieces from them for my rebuild. Great shipping/service/pics and descriptions.

Looks good, I'd go for it. I bought something from that seller last month, very smooth transaction.

Pvester,

How bad is your brake lever ?
Mine was pretzled, big time. (amazing, somehow it hooked instead of just scraping during a track session and ended up folded back and bent up !)
I used crescent wrenches and a vise and with a bit of peening got it dead on back to way it was. (then proceeded to reshape it to tuck it in)
It's amazing what a vise and patience can yield, plus some peening with an engineers hammer should any be needed.
Double Crescent Wrench Bending Tip
For some bends, and it's hard to describe when it's needed, you can't input to get the bend you want with a crescent wrench and vice.
BUT, put one Crescent Wrench on the part, the second Crescent is used on the jaws of the first wrench, and sometimes you can.
Or sometimes, two crescents on the part, one as a steady and hold, the other to the bend.
There are a number of variations.
It's amazing the things that Crescent wrenches can be used for.

Since it's a Honda you must use a metric crescent wrench

Absolutely !
Craftsman and Canadian Tire specials.
Actually, I find the Canadian Tire ones have a better class of fit between the fixed and moving parts, plain and simple, less slop in them.

I straightened mine once as well. While it was on the bike I used an allen head socket in the hole of the lever. Just went very slowly. Didn't get it perfect, but close enough.

Canadian Tire is a big hardware store, automotive part store, outdoors/lawn-chair, camping gear, kitchen, etc... And I love Tim Horton's coffee

That was on your big trip some years ago, right ?
A wee incident somewhere in New York State or something like that ?
And which bolt did you take off the bike to do the bending against ?
My kinda guy - on the spot improvisation a zillion miles from home !!!!

Pvester,
How to have a shop vise in an apartment to permit work to be done.
Go buy yourself a nice vise, say a Record 4 inch (I have 4 & 6 and used the 4 to do the repair) or a similar clone that has decent jaws and nips up nice and square.
Get a piece of 3/4 inch or 1 inch plywood.
Drill to size where the holddown bolts go.
Go to the back, and spot face, or chisel out instead.
Size it to yield a counterbore that will accept the OD of a carriage bolt.
The idea is the that head of the carriage bolt will flush with the back side.
Mount the vise to that.
Take that plywood board and vice.
Put it on your kitchen table, say some newsprint in between for anti scratch.
Clamp it to the table with carpentry clamps.
Work away.
When done, take the vise off and find a place for it, ditto with the mounting board.
It's all how you see things.
Stuff can be done.
For example, your sink is a solvent tank, as long as you are using something like Simple Green or that orange smelling stuff that is enviro friendly.
Your shower stall can be a spray booth as long as you drape properly and have the exhaust fan on.
Your oven can bake stuff.

That was the trip that I lost the shifter bolt. It was actually my wifes bike that had the bent brake lever. If it happened to me far from home I would try using a wrench like a snipe on the pedal. One such as the front axel wrench that comes in the tool kit.
