Mine arrived at our home in Florida just days after I hauled the bike to our summer place in Georgia.  Looking forward to getting it installed and get the bike ready for this years Southern Spine Raid.

 

Pete- Thank you so much for everything you do to help us keep our bikes running.

 

Tim- Thank you so much for all the work and effort it takes to organize a group buy, order, receive and ship the items out to thirty some people.  We all thank you so much!

Plates arrived today. I can sell them for US $115, including USPS flat-rate shipping inside the US and the "free" $50 insurance. But I need to go away on business travel and can't ship until April 27t

Just finished packing up everything I could - until I ran out of upper sump gaskets. As soon as I receive the remaining gaskets I'll ship the rest.   The numbers are working out as expected. Thank-y

Here we have a stack of plates.     They don't weigh much independently, but dang... they sure get heavy when you pile 'em up.   All nice and official with motomoda Australia etched right in th

I'm glad to know the plates are finding their way to their destinations - and getting installed. So far, only one shipping problem: the USPS actually bent one of the plates. Not sure how that gets done in the course of mail-handling, but we'll get it sorted out.

 

Still waiting for the back-order of gaskets before I can ship the balance.

Gasket/shipping update:  Gaskets are due to arrive at MG Cycle on Monday next week - then they ship to me.  I will probably be able to ship the remaining kits by the end of next week, or early the following - all depending on actual delivery date.

Jesus wept! It's not like they're fragile!

 

Gimme the address and I'll send one direct. I think I have a couple left.

Thanks Pete, I could have covered it if it was a V11 plate, but it was a Tonti, and I don't have an extra. I sent you an e-mail with shipping address.

 

Here is Kostarica's Tonti plate. The poor thing appears to have been run over in Crosstown Traffic, like Jimi Hendrix sung: "Tire tracks all across your back, I can see you had your fun."  I really like the irony of what I assume to be a tire track and how it goes right over the "Tracked *** Insured" promise on the package.

 

Kosta was going to try to get it pressed flat by a machinist - I'm not sure if that will work well enough.

No worries, I'll flick another one off tomorrow direct. With that one I suggest beat the f*cker flat and use it in something else :D

Here is the alignment problem that the Roper Plate creates. A few minutes with a round file or a small grinding tool will take care of it. Elongate the lower hole so you will not bend the small, lower bolt when you torque down the large, top bolt.

Hi scud. Can you elaborate on this issue a bit more. Thanks!!

 

The sidestand bracket has two mounting holes.

  1. Upper: large hole for the large bolt that goes into the timing cover.
  2. Lower: smaller hole for a smaller bolt that goes into the upper oil sump ring.

The plate, when installed, moves the upper sump ring down, by the thickness of the plate and one extra gasket. This causes a misalignment of the hole in the sidestand plate and the threads in the upper sump ring. Notice the brightest hole in the above picture and how the circles are not concentric. You need to elongate the lower hole (downward) so the bolt has a straight approach, through the bracket, into the threads in the upper ring.

 

It will make sense when you have it your hands. I think this is the only "trick" to installation, unless you count this as a trick: raise the parts and gaskets toward the engine with two opposite-corner bolts sticking through to keep everything aligned.

 

Elaborated?
