  1. I'll check on the bracket tomorrow and try to get pictures to you as well. The seat is virtually new. I think $50 is fair for seat & bracket. $100 for both seats and bracket.
  2. I'm not familiar with an M67, but I have a solo seat and solo-seat type passenger pillion as well for a Dnepr MT11. Show what you need exactly.
  3. For sale: A pair of original style solo seats (rubber) for a Dnepr. Sorry, I'm no expert so I can't tell you what model or year. Rear is a luggage-rack mount. $100 plus shipping for both.
  4. "...lying POS Yanks..." I'm often wrong about things (that's my right) but I thought we were here to assist each other with our pet projects? Politics (all) and politicians (all) be damned, but I think I'm becoming, perhaps, Australian unfriendly. To quote a previous saying, "If you are ignorant, which you are, stop commenting!!!"
  5. Seems like if the kayak was actually upside down you'd have less chance to catch the cross wind. Just a thought.
  6. Look at Hobbes64 's question "What model is this?" for a picture of the tractor seats.
  7. A "tractor" seat probably won't help you... you'll just be sitting on the back edge of it. That said, I do have a tractor seat and a tractor passenger seat for sale. I went British on the problem and adapted an antique Lycett solo seat and BMW luggage rack, The Lycett is larger than the tractor seat, and much, much more comfortable, and I even think it looks better... but I found it still didn't move me back adequately.
  8. If it's running, run it. Fix it wen it's broken! Listen to Murphy!
  9. WOW! That's one way I never considered to solve an electrical problem!
  10. I went thru a series (3) of internally bad cut-off switches, and then a series (3, again) of internally bad batteries. A simple test light or VOM and a lot (really, a lot) of cold beer, uncomfortable working positions, having the wife or significant other away on a shopping spree, and you'll find the problem, eventually.
  11. Don't both of the units have reverse? They've both got the reverse shifter? I'm new to all of the hidden nuances, so somebody please tell me what else I should be looking at (besides the latest Honda sales literature)!?
  12. Doing pretty much the same things you are, just not quite as well, or carefully, I'm sure! I've encountered one problem at the stage you're at. I've got interference between the handlebars and the top-front of the M72 tank with the handlebars turned to the extreme in either direction. Looks like I'll need taller, or modified, bar mounts, or a slight tank reposition. Maybe spacers under the mounts will work, I haven' t tried that yet. Also, what keeps the tank box closed or latched?
  13. Anybody got a heel/toe shift lever for a Dnepr MT11 that they'd be willing to part with (KM3-8.15204615 / pic 14)? Need 0ne quickly!
  14. Can anyone tell me the final drive gear ratio for a Dnepr MT 11? Or at least what it should be stock? 8:37, 9:35, 10:35, or... Also, don't I want the highest ratio (8:37) to gain a slightly higher cruising speed? 50 mph is deadly on anything beyond a residential avenue here.
  15. YES! By the Gods and all that is good, it is a drop- on bolt-on! I know this for a fact because I've been doing that very thing over the last few days!
  16. Anybody got a source for a latch (or lock, or catch) for a Dnepr tank-top tool box? I can make a simple one, but lazy knows no limits!
  17. Please put me down for a complete set. Send me your PayPal info and amount and it's on the way! Fatbob at Cymbidium6@att.net.
  18. Spare parts, tools and a good single malt!
  19. Got the exact same problem as 'spiritwalker' for about the same length of time. Pretty much just gave up on 'em.

    Re-Rant... Welcome to the new millennia, the time where stupidity and greed run hand in hand! A time where autocrats, bureaucrats and politicians of all ilk run rampant over logic and creativity! Why repair when you can buy new!? The battle cry of the new age! "Spend, Spend, Spend" is the new corporate philosophy. We must fight them by any means available or we will perish! Utilize ONLY Mom and Pop local hardware stores and figure ways around the impossible! I'll shut up now.
  21. If you've got no vin plate, and you've got no stamping at the left rear, stamp your social security number at the left rear and tell 'em that's the vin... it's worked for me (twice)!!
  22. As said above, it an be anywhere between a summer breeze and a tornado to deal with the DMV. Where are you located? Do you have a bill of sale? Can you get a letter from the seller? No matter where you're at you'll need that BOS. I recently registered a papered Dnepr but it was a requirement to lose my existing paperwork and fib about the year of manufacture to get everything done! You're only screwed when you stop being creative!
