    '83 GPz750 Resto-Mod (pic heavy)

    I originally wanted a Stack tachometer with built-in digital speedometer function but after waiting several weeks with no delivery date available, I cancelled my order and went a slightly different direction. I bought a single function Stack tach but added on a Koso speedo unit. That meant...

    Thanks. I’ve been doing a LOT of side jobs so I was able to pay down some garage funding debts. I’ve started taking in less jobs and want to get back into my own projects. Later, Doug

    Z1/Kz900/1000/1100 Go Fast-ish Parts

    Bump it up! These are taking up room and I don’t want to pay eBay 12+% of the cost for fees. Later, Doug

    Question about a Works Shock.

    I reached out to Schmidty Racing Suspensions. $200-220 parts & labor to get a longer line installed. Daugherty offers a BD40 shock that appears to be fully adjustable for $775. I think I may go that route as he said the shock is customizable for my application. Later, Doug

    Question about a Works Shock.

    You would think. I’m very close to just selling the Works shock and take a loss and get something that’s not a hassle to deal with. Later, Doug

    Question about a Works Shock.

    I haven’t looked locally yet. I contacted Daugherty Suspension about it. The line is $40 but he says the shock needs completely taken apart to change it out which I think is hokey. He charges $150 for a rebuild but since I don’t need parts it would be $125 in labor. I don’t get his reasoning...

    1985 Cb700SC wiring dilemma

    Hey all, I’m working on a ‘85 700 Nighthawk that someone removed the ignition switch and twisted all the leads together with a residential wiring nut. :facepalm: Anyways, I have an ignition switch coming but it has 5 wires and the wiring diagram I found shows 5 wires. The problem is that I...

    Question about a Works Shock.

    So RT responded with a price of $300 for a new line and labor to refill and recharge the shock!! That’s more than the rebuild that Worx Shocks already performed. So far I have about $750 wrapped up in this shock including the purchase of the shock used. I guess I’ll cut my losses, sell the...

    '83 GPz750 Resto-Mod (pic heavy)

    I decided that some self-torture was in order so I set about working on the wiring again. My first attempt was modifying the original harness but I abandoned that. Now I’m trying to use a Zr7S harness since it uses a newer junction/fuse box arrangement and the bikes are loosely related. I still...

    Question about a Works Shock.

    I contacted Matt with mixed results. I sent him an e-mail and he promptly replied asking for more details and pics. I sent him pics the next day but got no response. Followed up a couple weeks after. No response. Followed up last night and he responds that he’s “off-site” and can’t help. He gave...

    '83 GPz750 Resto-Mod (pic heavy)

    Thank you. It’s hard to believe it’s been 8 years and it’s still not done. I keep changing my mind and parts. I guess this is why people make a thing called a “build plan”. Later, Doug

    '83 GPz750 Resto-Mod (pic heavy)

    I bought a lightweight titanium Ladybird muffler several months ago to replace the heavy D&D. The Ladybird had a few dents and dings but was nowhere near the price of a new one. I ended up shortening it 5.5”. I cleaned up the cut end and now the only telling sign I did anything are mis-matched...

    '83 GPz750 Resto-Mod (pic heavy)

    Since swapping to the hybrid rear-end mashup, the caliper bracket I made to fit the Brembo caliper with the stock VFR wheel no longer works. So I found just about the smallest caliper I could and set out to remake another bracket. Now the back of the caliper clears and the eccentric can...

    '83 GPz750 Resto-Mod (pic heavy)

    I forgot I made this thread but will try to keep it up to date as much as possible. I really need to read through the thread and figure out exactly what I’ve covered and where I left off. I got tired of moving it around and got some time freed up from working on other people’s bikes so time to...

    Question about a Works Shock.

    Long story short….I need a place that can provide a longer remote reservoir hose, refill the oil, and recharge a Works mono-shock for me (at a reasonable price). Please don’t recommend Worx Shocks. Their customer service is horrendous. Thanks. Later, Doug
