    Ok glad you did all that, hate for someone to tear down a top end and find out it wasnt worn rings. A leak down test for a bad valve would be good too before you tear it down

    Hot or cold? WOT? Valves in Spec? If no to any of those redo. Hot engine. WOT or carbs off. If valves are tight at all you'll get bad numbers. My cx500 was parked for poor running. PO didnt do valves. I had 100 on left 150 on right. Checked valves. Left intake was tight by just a smidge. Set it...

    Brat/rat first chop

    I'd definately put fenders of some sort if you plan to ride it at all. What exactly is a big IDK? I like to play with MS paint and paste ideas on the bike. it's crude but works to narrow stuff down sometimes. Now if you have access to Photoshop type stuff that's much better.

    "Tangerine Dream" / Glemseck - KZ750

    Yep, you have to able to ride the thing and this compromise for function has not bad form, the megga just peeking out and now being level at the tip makes it look alright.

    that's actually not too bad, as long as the tire doesn't hit it.

    Ha, signing up. I was hoping to bring the Hyosung to this but will have to be next year as I am out of vacation time until after it's over.

    Yep, it's just the turned down end. I think a reverse cone would look great in the same place.

    On this you may be able to get it clean enough but if you need to re-jet for any reason you'll need it apart. Boil it in lemon juice or pinesol (outside if pinesol) it should break free. Or soak it in a small jar with a lid and carb cleaner over night.

    Some Hondas the blinkers won't work unless the bike is running. IDK why but I've had 2 that way. I converted to LED with a digital flasher, then they worked running or not. I think its the old flasher relays

    If you don't have an ultrasonic you can redneck one with a sander and a container. I use a tupperware style tub, boil pinesol and put it in, put a lid on and the duct tape a sander to it and turn it on. It shakes the shit out of the carb and gets a lot of crud lose. then I use carb cleaner and...
