    You said you couldn't get the starter gear alone I thought? Haha.

    Buy a bandit and keep the starter gear?

    That's what I thought , but when I talked to them it was $320 for the starter gear or $395 for the whole ass'y. So for the little difference why not get the whole ass'y, right, WRONG, the clutch ass'y is the carrieir and inner gears and the starter gear and sprocket teeth are 1 piece. They bolt together

    So it's $395 for the assembly and another $320 for just the gear? Am I understanding that right?

    I got your video just haven't had time to play with it again. But my movement looked similiar to your video still don't know how you measured the jackshaft movement.

    Yes, the measurement was a guesstamate from years of being a retarded design engineer, I guess since its out now I could use a dial indicator, if I had one:rofl:

    Still didn't answer the pricing question. If it's $700 for the whole assembly I hope you tried Donna first. I bet they have some

    I believe I first said the movement was .040-.060, well I measured it and my guesstamate was pretty close, it had .036 movement on the starter gear up n down, not good

    They (S&S) also have rain socks that you can buy to keep water from entering them if you get caught in the rain

    I'm glad you like it. The credit equally goes to Skogdog who helped with swap and actually wrote the post for me( I did hit the post button) and Derek and Donna who were sooo good to work with. Prior to shipping, they actually mounted several different bars on a rolling chassis and sent me pictures of them to help me decide on the best set up. Everything I have done with them has turned out very good for me. We should be thankful we have them. I also had the same handle bars installed on my new K9 that I think will take delivery on next week.
