    You can easily replace the brass shoes with steel ones.
    I have that on my 420 ae.

    Michel why would you prefer the steel shoe, I have a fair few spares but all the steel shes and drums tend to be to worn to be of any use and any new replacements extremely expensive, while the brass bits are often reclaimable and easier to find new.

    I've bought my 420 with steel shoes on. I have only bikes with steel shoes (430 and 500).
    I don't know if you can CNC brass, and which quality must be used.
    Where do you get easily brass shoes ? On ebay ?

    I agree that CafeHusky is a better format, but it doesn't have to be the only one.
    There's some good info on the various FB pages and I think Steve's is the pick of them so far.

    Met a great guy today, we chatted for a bit has 4 L/C bikes and this came up.

    "

    Unfortunately, I have a ton of questions and it’s tough to find the answers for these old girls. I joined cafe husky but cannot view pics, post topics or even like someone’s post. I really like the FB group with all the questions
    "

    572 members as of of today, that a ton a traffic and content.

    a properly functioning forum is better than anything..this one is broken and until another is started, its what we have.

    apparently many new users have a hard time becoming approved...im pretty sure this is less of a problem now..but i guess its still complained about.

    Takes roughly 30 days because of hackers and fly by nighters.

    Look how many guys come on here with new builds, gun ho, then vanish. That's because they soon figure out the work involved and the price tag.

    I can't go on Facebook cause I know too many people and employees. People now a days and way they act with all drama, drives me nuts, as it is. I get a zillion linkdin requests and ignore. I just want peace of mind after hours and do me own thing. I work easy mon-fri 60 hours week.the rest of my time is work at home, my builds, racing or going trail riding. But to others, it's prob a good thing. But wait! My phone rings 24/7 all the time.

    I find the facebook stuff fragmented and hard to follow. Cafe Husky is organized and easy to find what you like.

    New people can't really participate.... Friend who rode an '85 250WRX back in the day, just picked up a 250XC. He joined, but can't post, like anything or message anyone. He's frustrated and using FB instead.
    To all of us who have been around, it seems fine. To the those who want to come in, it seems broken. No one can tell them when or how they get full privileges. There are some guys over on KTM Talk who thought becoming a contributing member would get them full privileges and they feel swindled out of their money. That's the way it is and you can't sugar coat it.
