Need a few parts
« on: April 25, 2020, 06:24:48 PM »
Need some parts:

Does anyone have an extra set or a good reference for a replacement:

Exhaust valves (2) for front cylinder ( mine were bent and causing issues)

Air filters (both front and back air boxes need it)

And a petcock filter - just the filter needed (reserve filter) but a combo filter would work as well.

Thanks for the responses in advance

hi, i can put you in touch with a nice guy who just hauled off 2 full vx-es, a 3rd complete but for the chassis and some rear end plastics, and boxes of spare parts.
His name is Nick Galbraith (sp.?) and he is also in the SF Bay Area.  He will follow through with whatever I promised some folks - for example, he has spare seats - OEM recently reuphostered, Travelcade, and at least one from that Holister place (I'm going senile!)... Corbin.  Give him time, as one of the two bikes needs the carbs put back in as well as a VR that I loaned to a friend.
My neighbors are not going to miss the Jardine slashcuts as much as I already do ...
