    Thanks for the info. I'm thinking of just picking up the parts when I get a good deal on them but not changing them out yet. The parts that it came with work fine, even though they are pretty low...

    I forget what it was called but back in the early 80s I put some type of sealant in the tires of my Yamaha 650. I wish I remember what it was. Anyway, the tires are still fully inflated.

    For the stem you can buy an adapter for about ten dollars but why bother. If you go on EBAY you can find about any type of quill stem you might want and the same goes for the one inch fork.

    Update: Marion County TN

    They finally charged two of the kids involved in this incident. I don't think any charges would have been filed if not for all the publicity the case received. I want to thank David Cook who has...
