At this point I am interested in opinions on color and graphics. I am thinking the original metalic blue with a white stripe down the middle on the small hump on the top of the tank and the seat bump stop.
Also it seams to run great equipped with the cheapo air filters and the 2 straight pipes with only small simple internal baffles (Yes it is loud, but isn't it supposed to be that way?) What re-Jet can someone recomend?
I have always liked the "light" look with skinnier tires (currently 3.00x18 on 160Ax18 rim Front and 3.50x18 on 185Bx18 rim Rear) but the smallest Modern tire within my budget would be 100/90x18 Front & 110/90x18 Rear, Will these work on these rims? will these Be significantly Beefier looking? not sure I want that.
I also Fabricated a single/centered gauge mount as I made the double mount as currently mounted. I see Speedo only used and I see Tach only. If I decide to "Single" what should I use? I think Tach "Seems" racier but I can judge Revs by sound better than I can Judge Speed?
Also strange that the 1979 CM400T parts bike (My back up engine) had both elect. starter AND kick, but but the 1980 CM400T has only Elect start. I really want the Kick Start on the bike. Can anyone shed light on this, and would it be an easy trade from the '79 to the '80? I'd like to keep the '80 engine on since it seems like a satrong engine, and eventually massage the '79 to put on.
I also wonder about my Rear Set Linkage. I see a lot of bikes that go straight to the rear drum with a rod on top from the pedal. I went forward to the original pedal pivot point then back to the bottom rear drum. it took a lot of lever calculations to get it right, but I was afraid that the movement of the swing arm in relationship to the pedal would make the braking fluctuate. Am I Crazy?
And Missed One.......
