lens kits for the Interceptor?
« on: July 25, 2012, 07:32:05 PM »
The 'ceptor often gets overlooked, at least when it comes to lens kits. Has anyone used my kit on their 'F' model and how did it work out? Brian is asking for V4 Market.

Billy,

I need a little help before I can offer any help on this.

What is the diameter of the lens that you offer?

Which interceptors are you referring to?

I can help I'm sure, but the above is going to make sure I don't get it wrong for you.

I stock 16.1mm and 16.7mm.

Any of them. Just trying to confirm fit on whichever models I can so Brian can list them on V4Market.

Thanks John.

Is this a confirmation of fit and I assume it is the 16.7mm lens?

If you mean the screws for the res. cap, they are all the same as the Magna and sabers.

How can I get just a 16.7MM and screws?

http://www.v4market.com/Brake-Clutch-Master-Cylinder-Sight-Lens-Kit_p_80.html#
seems to be a Kit with one of both sizes.

Doesn't really matter I guess, I can just snag the one on V4 Market and test it on both.

Both lenses are 16.7mm. One for the clutch master and one for the brake master.
Just buy the kit and specify which bike you got, yr/model/size engine and I'll get you the right parts.

Folks,
 The 500F model uses the same rebuild kits as Magnas. I can probably say it's save to say that the 700/750F's also use the same rebuild kits and would also use the same replacement lenses.
 I have replaced the lenses in a 500F-1100C and now a 1986 Goldwing (I took a guess on this Billy  ;D) all with the same size lens kits as the Magnas.
 Some 1986 Goldwings use two different type master cylinder rebuild kits (I give Brian @ V4market a huge credit for finding out what brake master kit I needed but still use the same "site glasses".
