    First thank to all my true friends.

    l got unexpected responses from FRIENDS. Which takes away some hurt of my disappointment and agita. It just hurts to be accused of copying and being unethical.

    I'll just back off. But I will not change take me how I am or ignore me.....


    Glad you decided to stay. I’m too old to loose friends because of BS.

    Thanks again for the replies.

    Someone mentioned buying used vs new. From what I can tell, there aren’t many slingshots in my area. I know of one. Most that I have seen advertised on cycle trader are at dealers and they are asking nearly what a new one costs.

    I’m considering getting one of those cover logic sheds. Not sure how they would hold up here.


    Keep an eye on this forums’ for sale section. Also watch both eBay and CrapsList. There are occasional actual used Slings for sale. No, you probably will not find a low mileage Sling for $5K.

    Some of the best deals are for lightly used, highly modified Slings.

    Nuc’em is resting comfortably at home for a couple of months. In the mean time, we’re spending the winter along the Gulf. Currently sharing the NAS New Orleans campground with a bunch of other RVers and a 5 to 6 foot gator. Life is interesting.

    Added a set of PRP’S with belts really like them very comfortable much wider than stock seats


    We love our PRPs. Makes long rides a breeze.

    Good luck on your project however the rust color on the spindle looks worrisome to me . Perhaps paint before the reinstall ...

    I was just going to wirebrush it and lubricate it. believe it or not, when I pulled the old parts off it was rusted like that so I wonder what was going on seeing as how I bought it brand new with 0 miles oct. 17. . . . . . . . plus I have it covered if it is outside and otherwise it stays inside the garage. doesn't get rained on. lol.


    Steel wool and WD-40. Should clean it up and protect the bare metal.

    Here’s a thought that just crossed my mind. Check to see if it is a metric or SAE bolt. If it is SAE it may not have come from your Slingshot at all. All of the hardware that I have replaced has been metric.

    It takes a 4.5 mm hex. 😕. Putting it on a trickle charger and running away Monday for couple of months. Will worry about it when I get back.

    Don’t think that’s it.

    Thanks! I’ll take a close look tomorrow.

    Also looks like headlight bolts... Looks familiar from when I took off my assemblies to install the custom rugged ridge LEDs Patrick gave me.

    If I'm not mistaken, it may be a blinker bolt.

    I’ll have to take a closer look at the turn signals. The headlight bolts are really long. About 2 inches if I remember.

    with all that rust on the shank and spring washer I would say that wherever it was it sure couldn't have been tight. It it had been I would think those areas would have been protected from the elements

    It had rained over the past few days. 😕

    Thought we needed someplace to post about our nonSling projects.

    We are getting ready to go play snowbird for the winter (advantages of getting old). We are taking our Travel Trailer on the road and wanted a night light to find our rig when we come back. Made a “night lite” from a bucket.
