Caution: Smoking is addictive, and basically requires a 12 Step Program to quit.
But I gotta admit, it's a decadent guilty pleasure :P

When you are Dead, you don't know that you are Dead. It is difficult only for Others.

It is the same when you are Stupid.

Did you ever consider an RD350 top end for that beastie for a little more get up and go?

I just happen to have a set of 350 jugs and a set of new Prox pistons and a spare set of intakes and reed cages with TDR reed valve petals looking for a home.  And a 350 transmission and maybe even a set of carbs.... The barrels are new from China or HK or somewhere and the castings are excellent but mismatches between the liner and barrel need cleaning up and that's what I'm doing now for amusement.  I'm not going as mad with the ports as I did on the last motor I built which made 52 HP on street gas. This one will be more mellow.

Just sayin'..............

You have my attention 😛

I have a spare 350 bottom end that has a 400ís 6speed already stuffed in it.

With a glowing recommendation, I purchased these LED headlights...

I know, it's not a really good comparison.
But we're currently under TS Barry, so no riding today :\
