    I bought some "Scrambler" stickers for my DIY panniers from those guys. They were probably intended for a Triumph or some such, but what the hey.

    Where to source oversize piston/rings?

    You could also just replace the cylinder. A few years ago, I bought a used standard-bore cylinder for my XL100 on eBay. It was $30 including shipping.

    Cylinder dowel o-ring placement?

    Only one of the dowels has an o-ring. I put it on the dowel, then insert the dowel into the cylinder. I can't comment further since I've always used the o-rings supplied with my gasket kits.

    Where to source oversize piston/rings?

    From my limited experience, I'd take the list of oversizes and the cylinder to the machine shop and let them decide. They may want the piston before they bore it, and will need to know the piston-to-wall clearance, which should be in the FSM or available from the piston manufacturer. For...

    I got my gauge lights from Superbright, but it looks like Sparck has them now- I might try them first. You want white 6v BA9s. You can't tell they're LED, so they don't clash with the character of the vintage bike at all. They're just 10x brighter. I can't remember if you need to adapt the...

    Nice work! The bike is looking better, for sure. Maybe someone who actually knows something about painting will chime in, but my guess is a quality vinyl tape would conform to the spherical shape of the headlamp bucket better than masking tape, and leave you with a sharper edge. Check out the...

    1982 Suzuki GN125

    Hey, nice bike. I missed this back in April- I must have been distracted by the impending end of the world or something. Did you get an antique plate? Registration is permanent and no annual inspection. By my calculations, that makes break-even after only a couple of years.

    On the 100/125 bikes it goes like this: the carb mounts to the manifold (sandwiching the o-ring in-between), then there's a paper gasket, followed by a plastic insulator, then another paper gasket, then the head.

    Want: XL185/XR185/XL200/XR200 idler gear and bushing

    Thanks, Teazer. Yeah, David Silver has them new and they're only an hour away, but I figured somebody here might have one sitting at the bottom of a bucket of parts. I didn't consider the bush is probably a press fit. I do have a hydraulic press, though, if that's the case.

    Great tips. Because of the o-ring question, I still wonder if the insulator is on the correct side of the manifold and both gaskets are installed.

    XR/XL Idler Gear Mystery

    Thanks, Teazer. Since that part was missing, I went through the rest of the transmission to verify it's all in order. Everything else looks great. It's weird. From the condition of the heads of the fasteners on the slinger, oil pump, etc., I would have bet money I was the first one inside the...
