    1982 CB750F...Better Devil

    Interested to see what you find. My 1981 CB900 is a similar animal and has always had some rolling noise in the bottom end, worse when cold. Heard starter drives are a common noise in these too. At 49000 miles it is likely due for some love, bit it still rips so I rode on.

    Installing FI cbr125/250 throttle bodies on CL350 using microsquirt ECU

    Cool. Did you do the kit from Microsquirt that you assemble? I was looking at their stuff pretty hard a few years back for a turbo project. It seems you can have endless possibilities for everything...triggers,timing,boost,coil style. Very smart stuff.

    That is a nice running XS. What did it hit for HP numbers?

    Any experience with induction heating?

    The one I have used was shaped like a coil on the end of two leads on a tool the size of a curling iron. Its main purpose was heating up large bolts in a diesel repair shop. It worked amazing on things like frame or suspension bolts which normally are never disturbed and are rusted bad -...

    Should I replace brake pads on ‘75 CB125?

    I agree with ex, even if they had been replaced once, the lining soaks in moisture from the air and breaks down the bond, especially on an aluminum base. Having a lining come off and jam the wheel to a stop would make the $20 bucks for a new shoe set seem a small price to pay. As for the lining...

    First Project Bike - 1981 XV750

    I think you will find the XV bikes good to work on. You are a good man to do a father son project . My son just turned 13 and we love our garage time. My 81 has been a great, fun, reliable ride. Looks like yours already has a single carb conversion on it possibly. I know I have a wiring diagram...

    The dreaded P.O.S., or previous owners screw-ups.

    Got a few more pics today. Rubber oil cap fit as a tank rubber, I almost could not pull the tank of as it was so swollen. Tank JB welded over the rust, and stacks of SAE washers in place of tank rear mounts. I like fixing things like this. Anything you do is an improvement. :)
