New products section
« on: September 13, 2008, 04:23:27 PM »
I would like to see a button added to the store site for new additions. It would be interesting to see those items added to the inventory that were not listed in the catelog. Easier than searching the enire site to find new goodies.

  Since my 07 is a combination of metric/whitworth am wondering if you folks could find s distributor for whitworth wrenches/sockets and add these to the store.  These could be of a more generic issue than King Dick for the budget minded rider. :D

You should not find any Whitworth fasteners on a 2007, There might be one in the way underside of the chassis. Have you in fact found some?
  We have thought about carrying these though for the guy who doens't quite have everything.

Was told the same thing when I bought it, but have run into some very tight fits and some that were a little sloppy.  So I would say yes there are.  And there is even a 1/4 X 5/16 whitworth in the tool bag.  Other owners have wrote they found them on the engine/trans.  That's the reason I brought it up, I just want to be ready if all else fails and a crescent/vise grip won't work.

I've noticed a few fasteners on my '07 that pretty sloppy either with Metric or ASE wrenches, I assumed as well that they're Whitworth.
Sorry, I can't think of what they are off the top of my head. I think it's the push-rod adjusters and the access panel nut.

I'd like to buy a super heavy-duty all cotton T-shirt in grey with red lettering outlined in plack that says "Royal Enfield" across the chest.

Those other shirts are a tad preppy for this old bird, and no one else makes them either (I've checked all the usual places).

I'm messing with ya Unc, go to www.customink.com and you can make anything you want.  I've never actually bought one of their shirts so I can't vouch for the quality but I have designed several.

Black looks good, but in hot climates in the sun, it can feel like a torch on your back.
That's why I was thinking about grey.  6.1 oz white works
if it's not spaghetti night.

Take a poll?

I'd like to see Kevin expand the line of Royal Enfield thongs.

Not because I'd buy one, but I would enjoy looking at the product pictures.

BZZZZ.. nope,  On my 07' the passenger pegs are attached with em as well as "that bolt that you have to loosen on the rear brake to adjust the chain and forget to tighten so you loose it"  is one.


Oh, and when riding behind chicks on crotch rockets with thongs is the only time I wish my RE was faster...
