Hello 8Ball, those should be able to be purchase as singles through a decent auto parts store. Nothing special, also avail in 90 deg, straights and 45deg.

On another note, I have been residing in Phx for the past 25 hrs, however I was once an east coaster. Made the trip from NJ to Slatington quite a few times to visit the quarry. I have good memories of cliff jumping there in the summers. Quite a few big drops there. Ever been?
Mike

Nailbomb, Good news on the mag. One thing that I do when I have to remove a KNOWN PROPERLY TIMED mag, I pull the cap first, rotate engine until small lobe is just left of rubbing block, use a Sharpie and place a witness line on mag body and base. Remove the mag and perform service without rotating eng. then I simply install with lobe in proper location, line up Sharpie mark, and away you go. It will be evident if something went south if it doesn't fire. 9 out of 10 its spot on. Otherwise you just time as normal. Just saves a few steps.

Nailbomb, Use the above method only if you are not replacing parts or moving any components. If perhaps your bike sits for a spell, next time. Good to hear it's up and running.
