    Default BuckHunter Service & Powder

    On the docket..

    Service & powder front forks
    Oil Change
    Fix license plate mount

    We tore that bike apart... found a broke bolt on the sissy bar, and stripped out one of the fork damper bolt plugs. Same thing that happened to one of my forks. Also found out the fork bushings are worn and need replacing.

    The bike now


    Parts for powder



    I can not wait to see it come back together!

    My damn thumb is killing me from whacking it with that mini sledge. Simple things never turn out to be simple. Let me know when you get the parts back ill come over and give you guys a hand putting it back together. Looking forward to seeing it finished.

    Well I picked up some other parts needed for the job. Also, replenish some shop supplies... took a can & a half of brake clean to clean the crazy crazy thick fork oil from the forks. NUTS!!

    And to powder the triples had to get the old bearings pressed off.

    I'm sure I will be happy with the finished product. I just got a bit of sticker shock when I realized how much this was going to cost me. Props to you guys who have spent the time and money personalizing your bikes with powder coating and painted inner fairings. This shit adds up FAST!

    You have no idea. What you pay for the bike is just a down payment on mods. Your never done. I still have more I want powdered plus a bunch of other shit which by itself isn't a lot but can add up into the thousands real quick.
