Did some wiring to bypass the clutch and side stand switches. No need for them other than to complicate the starter system

Stripped the carbs and gave them a clean. One was very bad yet the other was ok.

Got both rims finished as well.

It's alive!

Not running very well. Back firing from the front cylinder. You can see the mist from the front carb.

But that is the first run in around 10 years, so there is something.

well done, its aliiiiive

the crap running could be the lack of air filters, from memory those things are very sensitive to such things

found the caliper mounts but the mount holes appear to be approx. 85mm apart. if you still want to give them a try PM me your address and i'll send them up

If you're going to be in the engine at all, consider doing the 6205 bearing mod.  I did it on the 98 I have that had a seized camshaft.

Hey Spotty, thanks for the offer. Not sure what I could do with them being a smaller size. I will keep them in mind though.

Hooligan, I saw that mod. When I eventually go in to the top end I will be doing that, but for now I am getting her on the road with only the work needed.

Speaking of, here is a picture of the new indicators. 4 the same to replace the 3 it had.



Still waiting on the new tail light to arrive. I traded the bulky old one for a 6 pack.

Also, graveyard shift sucks.

Just got the fuel pump cleaned out. Boy was there some gunk in there.

One step closer everyday

Cast. Only $12 a pair as well. They are red lenses and dual filament. Going to use the lower brightness as additional brake lights.

are red lenses legal for indicators up there or are you looking forward to roadworthy fun and games?
