I got a set of HC Pistons that all the brother's here were willing to yield to me much like a first post to a sale on here.

Because of rswarrior.com, I got Yamaha HC Pistons delivered for under 300 bucks

If you see something you want, maybe mention it here and see if we can make things easier on a warrior brother...worked for me....thanks all for that, me like HC pistons a lot.....lmao

Suffice to say here that, was I able to bid, the final amount would in all probability, be greater than $305!
More importantly, what really blew me out of the water was the bidding manner. The starting bid was $200 with a $2.50 increments. Bid 2 was at $305. When the $305 maximum bid was made, (assumed by me to be a maximum bid), should not bid 2 be $202.50? Certainly a bid was received between $200 and $305. I do not use eBay a lot, but am I missing something here? In other words and assuming I could bid in the amount $310, with no further bids, would bid 2 be $305 and bid 3 be $310?
Yes you are missing something. When you bid, your bid only outbids the lowest bidder. Don't know how to explain it clearly, but I'll tell you what I did.

The starting bid was $200. GNO probably bid $302.50, so whenever anyone bids anything below that GNO's bid automatically outbids that bid by $2.50 until the bids pass his $302.50.

That's why when I bid $350 with 5 seconds left I won the speedstar for $305. Yes, that was me. My Ebay ID is the same as it is here, 68ramair. I didn't mention it here for the same reason. Being and Ebay sniper, that's how I roll. Sorry GNO.

It's was a lot of fun doing the install. Very straight forward. Did not do the cams so it was all top end work. This motor is cake to work on....get 'em installed....

There is no reason for being sorry brother, we are all on this together for the love of our bike. I am waiting for the law of averages to tilt in my favour!
Yea yea a classic case of 2 bidders with 2 bids within a relative small dollar range and time frame. Just for curiosity purposes, I checked the bidding history. I think I am now ready if something like this pops up again. Lol
Congrats 68ramair on a great find. It' appears that the pipes are in great shape. It is so difficult to get a good picture of chrome. These pipes are very durable and should last a long time.
Have fun and enjoy them. If they are too loud let me know!

I love the sound of them, deep rumble and not too loud at idle and lower rpm. But open it up and they let you know there is 102 ci on the other end of em.

I have Ripsaws now, don't expect these to be any louder. If they are then that's just a bonus.

I don't, matter of fact, I find a little bit of pleasure in seeing chrome disappear
