WTB - 900 Heads



ve decided to assemble one more engine out of the spares that I have.

Dawned on me that I have been siting on a good set of cases for years in case I blew my race engine. Pretty much in perfect condition.

I have cylinders, gearbox bits, oil pumps cams, and more, just lacking a set of good heads.


Anybody have a set they don't need/want ?

This will all be just stock (unless I have ex race parts I no longer need/want) so the heads only have to be usable.Cylinders and piston are new and the crank's perfect, just stock. So if I need to I'll do the heads up. Not to race standard just usable.

Ported/Polished is fine and can probably fix a chipped lip.

heads up anyone ?

Default BEWARE Of SCAMMERS!

Some users have received PMs from scammers in response to WTBs that they've posted. They tend to follow along these lines, or similar:
"My buddy <name> has what you're looking for, email him on <email address>."
The person sending the PM typically has no posts, and has only just joined the Forum.

There may be a line like this at the bottom of the PM:
"Sent from my TECNO LB8a using Tapatalk"
If you Google a 'TECNO LB8a' (or whatever phone they're using) you'll see that it has a Nigerian origin!




I very strongly recommend that you don't contact the email address.

Please don't reply to the PM either.

Instead please report the PM: cick the 'Report Private Message' button (). Then one of the mods will deal with the scammer.

Default WTB 16in 9 spoke mag wheel for 79 ironhead

part number: 40953-79A, although I believe 40955-81, 40963-79, 40953-79A, 40955-81 will all work.

In an attempt to lower the bike, I have stock 18in wheel with 14in shocks.
I'm after some lower shocks, but not sure which order to try to lower, wheel or shocks first. Im short lol
