    Those off-set kick arms may not be needed ...

    Rear fender from a Gilroy Indian Chief ...
    They was known to hairline crack at the mount ...

    This was one that got replaced under warranty, I been hanging on to it for building a radical custom someday ...

    Here's a photo (1999) of me on one of the first 50 that came from Gilroy ...



    Those came with a 88" S&S motor ...
    (I was happy, it started) ..

    Do those have internal struts?

    Is that your International? You don't see many of those old trucks around... This is one I used to have, along with my early-stage shovel.

    ETA: Funny experience... I was interviewing for a maintenance tech job back in '93, and the interviewer asked if I had any mechanical experience. "Well," I said, "My only source of transportation is a 52 International and a shovelhead".
    When the IHC broke, it was usually about a week down (depending on the problem) since you had to either build or repair whatever part you were needing. Can't just go buy that shit. Oh, and I did get the job.

    How much for a polished Rivera kicker added to the pile (no arm or pedal)?

    It looks agreeably narrow. The stainless kicker shaft is a nice cosmetic touch. Is that set screw on the left side of the outer cover next to the speed sensor hole an oil level plug or does it retain internals?

    How far Custom are ya willing to go .. ??
    That would be terrific on a cholo style Softail. My respect for their quality work but I've no desire for anything that interferes with rapid rear wheel swapouts and this scoot will tend light and narrow. I'm thinking round stainless fender strut, ribbed fender and perhaps an 18" wheel.

    The Rivera unit has been taken off their product line ...
    (In other words, So sorry Charlie)

    But ..

    Ultima has copied it ....





    Cover is 2.25" thick .. Comes as a kit with arm included ..
    Less than $400 which is bout half of what a Rivera unit was going for ...

    Must be a nice unit cause Ultima said they sell out as soon as they get em in .. !!

    Shall we jump too and nail one down .. ??

    Ooh, that is the full hole ...

    Might as well wait on that while I learn a bit more about it. Sales don't mean much since most buyers aren't highly critical of their purchases.

    Too bad Baker and Primo quit making them but not being a mechanical necessity now the Denso starter made them obsolete. most buyers just want the shiny.

    Right-On, Boss ...

    Most likely a kicker would be only along for the ride ...
    Sure would be nice to have it when the battery takes a shit, but how often does that happen ??

    Not often to me but dat's why I wanted the large battery capacity that oil bag offers. (Even when my Shovels were kick-only I went with stock batteries because I love me some ampacity).

    I'm also curious what ball and ramp it uses since if it takes stock it takes other versions of stock like HD reduced effort ramps (spotfaced for the larger Baker throwout bearing instead of that dime-sized stock turd). Only the bearing side plate needs machining.

    I used to have the McMaster-Carr number for the larger wafer bearing but can't find it at the moment and my Baker wafers are installed so not convenient to measure.

    Are the Ultimas available plain? I find the chrome too flashy in that location and with a plain one I might could ball mill some horizontal grooves on the outside flat surface to break up the plain real estate and blast or peen all the major gearbox castings to match then Sharkide them so they don't get furry.

    Looks to me like you'll have to run what it has...
    Does look to be well designed ..

    "Are the Ultimas available plain?

    Think chrome is the only gig ..
    Stripping the chrome off is doable ...

    Nice. Anywhere breakers might be advantageous can get blade breakers, nice to have if things act up on the road or while troubleshooting.

    Called the manufacture and had a Pow-Wow with a tech about the kit Summit sold me ..
    He said that I was right about it not being able to do the job that I was after ..
    Gave me a number of a kit that would meet my needs ..

    Called Summit and asked if I could trade the wrong kit for the right kit ..
    They sent me a shipping label to return it back to them and they would send out the right one ..
    Good company to deal with but for their "Gun-ho" salespeople !! ...



    Sure glad I checked out the kit the other day before I did all the work to install it and then find out it's not going to lock the doors ...

    That would be like ......

    So if I'm looking at this right the kicker spins the nut on the tranny's main shaft? If used often does that tighten the hell out of it? I ask because I want a kicker on my bike. Can the threads strip if the engine kicks back on you? And if used often will it make it harder to service the tranny later?

    Sorry if it's a stupid question, but all my experience is on Japanese bikes and American bikes are totally different.
