    '84 FJ600 build

    Well I got the head rebuilt yesterday. Was able to refresh the existing parts with a good cleaning and it was all in nearly new condition. Very happy with the results so far. We lapped the valves into the new head and got them all in place. I will check for valve clearance after the engine is...

    '84 FJ600 build

    Well I am back at it. After a flood in my house, a death in the family and life in general getting in the way I managed to build myself a workbench from some old industrial steel shelving. I have my dissassembled engine up on the bench and am taking stick of what is next. I need to get the...

    Awesome info Teazer! I am in the process of calculating Rake, swing arm droop and my seat height. That link was very helpful. Thanks for posting it up!

    you should lower those forks internally rather than sliding them up the trees. While you have them opened up you can toss in some better springs. You can get a progressive set or RaceTech also sells some good ones. When I had my '82 Virago a couple years back rebuilding the forks with new...

    '84 FJ600 build

    I still have the stock chain guard but it is pretty beat... I plan to bend a new one up from some scrap aluminum I have laying around. I am pretty sure the PO just let it rub the edge of the tire as the tire is pretty worn on the chain side.

    My Try NX650

    Great looking bike! I really like the lines you created with the frame and tank. I am not typically a fan of Red and Black combo but you nailed it with this. Nice job.

    '84 FJ600 build

    Thanks for the complements. I still need to get some proper bushings in the swing arm mount for the linkage and a couple low profile bolts to lock it all down so its not done quite yet. That shock is from a 2010-13 FZ-8. Its a bit longer than stock hence the adjustable linkage I had to mock up...
