New guy
« on: May 16, 2018, 02:22:10 am »
Hey all, I'm new...obviously. Have an 86 C10 with 22k on the clock. Have had some issues finding parts, but have worked through it. I noticed a thread when i was looking for a new ignition switch that said it was hard to find and expensive. I ordered one from partsnmore...$50 plus $9.95 shipping. It is for a KZ550c, and was a perfect match. Hope that helps someone. Anyway, glad to be here, and hope to learn some stuff from you guys.

 :welcome:

I have an 86 and I happen to know that you picked the bestest, most prettiest, and fastest C10 ever made. Anything after 86 is just a copy and not quite as good (because it's a copy).

Welcome to the forum and safe riding to you.
If you have questions about the bike, you can get plenty of support here.

Also, please consider becoming a full member as it will help support the forum and you receive the hard copy Concourier Magazine.

Safe riding!

Well Sir, Welcome to the fray. Mark Hartman your ever grateful Area Director Here. Located out of Henderson NV. I too just recently came into a beautiful 86 Silver Dammit. I gotta be honest changing the oil and filter on this beast is a true PITA. Getting ready to put about 6k miles on her for OtP. For parts look up The Wizard. From all reports a good dude in a loose mood. Questions, suggestions are always welcome.

Welcome Panda. When you pay your modest fee, you'll find you've got the keys to an absolute treasure trove of C10 knowledge in the Library that will pay you extreme dividends on your membership RIGHT now.   Have fun.
