    Dag nabbit, ya got me anyhow! I just bought a 12 led red two pack at O'Reilly's for $12. When I put my new speedometer in I intend on replacing the gauge bulbs with LEDs also. We'll see.

    Yeah, I got it. I'll be putting on late this week. /6's with the 6.25 gal. tank have a certain utilitarian beauty hidden by what some may call an ugly outside appearance. That seat will be a...

    What kind of seat is this?

    I bought this off of Ebay for $36. It fits my LWB R60/6 and looks like new. I can't wait to try it out. To me a may be a JC Witney special or maybe somehing more exotic like a Meyer or Russell.

    R60/6 intake hose w/vac fitting?

    I am in the midst of putting a little effort into getting my 1976 R60/6 in better running order. One thing it does not have is the little vacuum pipe nipple on the intake hose or on the carb. It's...

    Seriously, define failure? Blown seals, collapsed springs, broken mounts. It's was just a question based on a few things I've read, sorry I offended your choice in shocks. Geez, questioning Ohlins...

    I run the Chen Shing Hi-max on on my R60. They are more than enough tire to handle 40hp. They are great in the rain, quiet, and really long lasting. Cheap too. Metzler is a bit too proud of their...

    Thanks. I used to use stick-on dots until the needle wrung itself off. I got into it and removed the broken needle but kept it for the odometer. I'd like to have it rebuilt if the cost is reasonable.
