I am wondering if ya'll are like me and acquire spare parts for your GW(s).

I listed several expensive parts above. Due to the high cost, Iacquired many through e-bay and shelf them knowing that Murphy will be around someday.

I have half on the listabove except the alternator, LCM display,CB, radio,headlight, and no plastic covers. I bought three covers, but they were after Murphy came and were immediate replacements that hurt me $ pretty bad.

I was limited to 10 items. My 11th would have been a "parts bike".

Poll will run 10 days.

I have (but don't carry them) brake pads with a good 50% left on them. Also have a windshield that was on the bike when I got it.

It would be nice to have other items at hand, like alternator and such.

I heard about alternators failing, so I carried a spare with me when I traveled up to New York this past summer. But other than that I don't carry it. It's just in the garage for when mine eventually fails.

I have a spare front wheel and two spare rear wheels. (the second spare rear wheel wasn't intentional, but it came cheap so I couldn't pass it up.) Having the spare wheels is convenient when it comes time to change tires. Since I take the bike apart in my garage to do it, then take the wheel down to the dealer and have them put the tire on it, I don't have to worry about if they are busy or not now, I can just drop it off and pick it up later and then have it ready in the garage when I am ready to do it. I have extra rotorson each of the wheels. But right now that's it.

Oh yeah, I have an extra set of carbs, but they aren't functional. One of the pilot screws is jammed in and I wouldn't try using the carbs like that. But they made for good practice before I overhauled my carbs....

If you ever have a flat and loose the bead, without the strap you'll never get the bead to set.. That's from experience..
