We've created a new board for posting about alternate parts. Parts were never plentiful for the Drifter, but as our bikes age getting even common parts becomes a problem. So, we have created a special board for posting about parts - parts from other bikes, sources of parts and accessories, etc.

If you know(first hand) of parts which will work on the 800 or 1500, please post what you know. We will gradually get this area up to speed in 2020. Thanks.

Alternate Parts and Suppliers

Yes. They know thier Drifter stuff. At one time they were supplying replacement fenders to Kawasaki in the US. They are efficient and speedy at delivery and thier product is excellent quality. I have purchased from them in the past and can recommend them.

Thanks Pete! I'll probably be going this route - fingers crossed!

marbling is bypassing the smog lines from the valve covers (1/2" cross over plastic hose) to the intake. get 3x1.2" vacuum caps, and if you like, 3 spring clamps or zip ties- .. block off all 3 ports, and it won't backfire (as much) on decel.

i replaced the front lower rubber motor mounts.. zero difference, was a mis-diagnosis

The original owner gave the set to me when I purchased the bike from him.

They are Hard-Krome American Classic II, model 38-8010
2.5" outer pipe diameter, 1.75" inner pipe diameter.
They made a super difference in sound and once the carb was rejetted, performance as well.
Some folks consider them too loud; I happen to like the tone.

Unfortunately, Hard-Krome is out of business.

Thanks tj and Old Drifter - I actually managed to find the badassglass site earlier tonight - - has anyone had any experience with them or their product? I'm relieved now that I know I have options - - repaint old, or get new fiberglass - now just to pick the right one.

Kow8rdr, To provide a baseline, I have measured the stock VN800 dog bone that I purchased. Stock bone: center of bearing hole to center of pivot hole is 7 and 7/8 inches. Scootworks bone: ( 3 positions available; 1,2 and 3 inch lower) 1 inch lower, holes center to center is 8 and 1/8 inches. 2 inch lower, holes center to center is 8 and 3/8 inches. 3 inch lower, holes center to center is 8 and 5/8 inches. Looks like the magic formula is adding 1/4 inch per inch of drop that you are trying to achieve. 

                                                                                     Happy drifting, CDD

I've used it for touching in on my E-2. Good stuff but expensive.

For a bike over 20 years old its paint colour might have faded a little, so getting a colour match at a paint shop with the measuring equipment might be a better bet.
