Buckets , I need some buckets

I measured the valve clearance on my intake and found that 4 valves were a little tight. They all measured 0.13mm. I removed the intake camshaft and as a result I need (2) 2.85 mm buckets and (1) 2.80 bucket.

If you can help, I can pay you for them and/or pay shipping via paypal etc.

You can send me a text also at 865 617 2093

thanks,

Alex Cuningham

Are these items hard to find on the open market?

They are available through a dealer but at the current price of $34.79 each, if you have to swap more than a couple, it can get pretty pricey with 16 in the bike. Swapping has become a normal thing on the forum. Once you move to a smaller size, unless there are others in your bike that might still need it, you will never use them and someone else may be able to and have something you need. They normally don't wear so swapping is very acceptable with little risk or you can just feed the dealer and buy new.
