Can anyone advise as where to get replacement lifting cylinders for the engine box and the spotters seat? The phone number printed on my cylinders is no longer working.

I bought them at Napa about a month ago. They were able to cross reference from the old units. I think all 3 cost me a little over $50.

Although, I think you can buy them other places, this may be the co. http://www.spdhardware.com/gs1.htm

Autozone, or NAPA or Advanced should have them

Thanks MarkP. The web site had all the info plus a cross reference chart to NAPA part #'s. Cost is around $28 each.

For the observer seat, I bought mine from a MC dealer for $11. Might be a better deal than $28.

Wow, goes to show you how standardized the dealers are. The dealer here wanted more than $11 for just the bracket! His price on the shock itself was over $30!

Prices at Napa & Overtons were considerably less.

If memory serves, I did not buy a new bracket. Just the shock.
