Hello again.....going to be needing a set of cylinders.....
does anyone on here have any experience with the UL sets they sell on ebay....
these are much cheaper than the s&s one,and just wondering about the quality.....
V twin used to sell sets for 600$,i imagine these are from the same manufacturers ...
any opinions on these...thank you

If Vtwin sells them, beware!! With S&S you get what you pay for.

I am not sure if they are the all the same manufacturer ...but i imagine so...the cylinders i am reffering to are the ones made in India..i imagine these were the ones sold by v-twin also but are a long time now out of stock..if they are the same they were sold by several companies at some point and then seemed to have ran out......only to be sold on ebay now and then but more expensive.... .....there are a couple of previous threads on the board as a couple of members were selling them in the past as i understand..including 45partsdeot....check older threads ,they go into full detail.......guy i spoke to said he changed the installed valve gides,and did some minor work,and have been running great.......these were selling for around 600$....apparently its the same company that has been producing 45 cylinders for years now.....

I remember Kurt from 45partsdepot and also Paul Friebus(American Cycle Fabrication) selling these cylinders not long time ago. Good to know they work good! Thanks for the feedback.
