Looking for parts on the 86 I just got.

Thought I'd try here first.
I noticed that one of the fork caps is missing and the battery hold down strap. Also could use a new left ear cover. Also mice got into one of the ears and ate half the foam away on the filter. Just need the foam on one.
I also have to replace all the turn signals (stalks broken)

Let me know if you got anything, thanks!

Are the ear covers interchangeable from side to side?

If you do the earshave, you won't need the cover or the filter!

I did the earshave recently, so I have the covers. The filters aren't so good though. I'd feel bad to give them to someone. I'm pretty sure my bike was laid down at some point, so I'll have to double check to see if the covers got jacked.

I ended up ordering one of the fork caps. I didn't realize the one on it was chrome and the one they sent me was a painted finish. Not really a big deal, If I was keeping the bike I'd probably change it out.

I also got the O-ring's yesterday for the front cylinder spark plug tube. I'm going to try and pull that out today and replace them. Then all I'll have to do is clean it up and list it.
