New Jersey sr500 tracker/scrambler
« on: Aug 12, 2014, 12:31:26 »
I picked up my non running 1978 sr500 for 450$. I am planning on getting it in running condition for the end of summer then really tearing into it this winter and turning it into as rambler that me and my girlfriend can cruise around on. I have a few pictures of the bike when I first got it and with new renthal bars I got off eBay for cheap I'll post more ass I progress. The last pic is kinda a inspiration for my build

First up was cleaning up the carb... Ordered a carb repair kit and it was the wrong one.... Ordered a new one and made my first attempt at cleaning a carb! It was extremely gummed up so I boiled it a few hours and it was good to go after that!

A few hundred kicks later and the thing still won't start, this being my first bike I didn't know wtf the problem was... Eventually I learned how to test my electrical system and found out that my stator was bad... Then I found out how much the fuckin thing cost!  :o sent my stator off to custom rewind and he had it back to me in a few days what an awesome guy to deal with besides the pricing (260) he sent me back a kick ass looking stator and repaired an extra little piece as well.

I cleaned it up good but I'm gonna have to do it again because it sat for a while until I got the cash for the stator, plus the gas tank rusted on me while it sat so I'm in the process of cleaning that right now...
