Pay It Forward - Sato Style

I wanted to shed a little light about a member on this forum. I'm not going to mention any name(s) but I feel truly blessed. As everyone on here commonly knows that parts for this bikes are becoming a little bit harder and harder to find.

Past few months I've been doing some searching for a slip-on system. I did a lot of searching on and off the forum for several systems, but my common denominator was the Sato's and I only wanted an SP1 setup only (keep the stock header).

I decided to make it public on here and mention that I was looking for the parts. Well I know it's difficult to let some of your children (figuratively speaking) but I fully understand, I use to own couple old muscle car projects before my bike obsession. The mids are the hardest parts to find for SP1 projects, and fortunately this generous member contacted me. This member sent me his SP1 high mount mids and hangers and shipping charges FREE of charge. I offered to pay but he refused. This person is truly a genuine person, and I can't express this enough.

This little project wouldn't be here if it wasn't for the member(s) on this site. For the new members who join this community daily, this is what we mean when we say "this is a tight knit community".


Cheers Brother & thank you!!!

SP1 parts are almost as difficult as buying a rotary phone....nice gesture, well done.

I also have had the great fortune of being gifted a couple very choice parts from a couple very gracious members...
You know who you are - my never-ending gratitude to both you guys!
