    That's quite true my friend, but as I've said, I've replaced the in tank filter and all of the fuel lines so these clamps wont' need to be replaced for quite some time AND as I've also posted while the worm drive work they are BUTT UGLY! Especially with a 'tail' hanging out. Besides the clamps I used are just like what came from the factory way back in '97

    Guess I'm just a bit too 'anal' for some.

    More giving you a hard time about your Harley.

    If they didn't need a lot of work why would they give you a map listing where all the dealerships are when you buy a new one??????

    I do belong to H.O.G. Harley Owners Group and yearly they send out a pamphlet that includes maps of all 50 states and there are highlighted routes for those who like the slower, more scenic routes. And yes it shows where to find a HD Dealership which is something that I find useful.

    I purchased my '97 Heritage Classic with 17,00 original miles on it. I just checked and I now have 33,000 miles on it/that's 14-15K per year that I've owned it

    Other than the minor oil leak (which I could have ignored) and day to day maintenance along with tire replacements that bike has had no need to visit a HD shop.

    This coming summer I'm hoping to make a ride back east to visit Tc and along the way there to visit with benz and then on the way back to see other friends and then my best friend who lives outside of San Diego before heading north and I seriously doubt that the 21 year old bike will need to visit a HD shop. However it is reassuring to know that they are out there and I know where to find them.

    Or as a pattern idea for your own version. Vacuum connects to the PVC part.

    Another thing I have been trying at home...Modern horn seems to be very prone to delamination. I usually find out about it near to the last stages of a re-scale.
    SO.........
    Buy a bottle of the thinnest/ superthin CA glue
    Get out the craft knife/ Xacto
    Drive the knife into the delam space
    Slowly add the CA to one end of the crack until it fills to the other end.Like the photo below the crack wwas about 5/16th deep and 1.5 inches long.
    The knife will pull out and the closing of the crack will fill that void with CA.

    I've seen those sanding jigs Richard. Looks like a really cool way to get the thickness exact.

    Itís all I have so far but why do I think Iíll have a ball with this one? Jeez Louise just look at that etch. Looks more like a relief carving.

    I took 3 pics across the face to highlight each section .
