    The reason I said "I am fucked" is because for me its a nightmare (and VERY expensive) to ship boxes back & forwards ....... not because of Curtis, its just Customs!!!!! :oldbang:

    Ah, Catalonia is trying to separate from Spain by 2017, they are all just huffing and buffing at the moment! They will all come down in near future....

    I wonder whether that might be the reason I feel like a bloody camel hauling a suitcase full of HD parts to my friends every time I come to Finland.

    Nice:old2:, however I think you need to get some shrink wrap to cover the band clamps on the Dual Runner filters:skep:

    Gotcha! Okay wasn't sure you said you were "just about ready to roll" so I thought maybe you managed to get some slack some where. I had Assumed that meant you were just had tidying up to do. That's why I asked :)

    Cause a spacer is helpful? If you ask nicely maybe pknowles will make you a set.

    You've been angry Franco on this R&R . Do you want to talk about it? Lol

    Yeah.... its not only the spacers, but also the harnesses in the kit are the wrong ones so I must better forget all about it.

    Also, Customs fucked it up big time with a box full of Parts, Clothing, BDM sissy bar bag, Mirrors, etc etc etc etc etc that Curtis sent to me in June. We are still trying to get it back (Last seen in Atlanta!!!!) so.... I am out of pocket quite a fair amount of $$$$ and now this about this handlebar kit.... so yes I am furious! :oldangry:

    I should have gone this way from the beginning: (If I can find them cheap in Europe) See below.

    But yours will look cleaner when it's done, rather than the risers.

    Well let me tell you a little story that might brighten your day:oldbang::oldrant:oh boy, here we go, you know I have this starter bang and my starter gear is all chewed up, well I ordered the wrong part thru a misunderstanding and got the clutch basket assembly without the starter gear, fukin great, I sent it back and ordered the starter gear and today taking it apart I feel a detent in the fukin clutch basket carrier bearing[​IMG] So now I have to call them and order the damn part I just sent back:willynilly::oldbang: This is enough to make a sober man start drinking again[​IMG] So if you think Franco, your the only one that has problems, get the hell in line, put on you big boy panties[​IMG] and throw something on the grill, I'm hungry.

    Sorry for the rant and the high jack, but tell someone who cares[​IMG] [​IMG] and after all this, when Sue finds out how much I spent, I'm gonna have to get a job at Home Depot
