    LED H4 bulbs on Ebay..

    Ok there are like a 1000 different styles, wattage etc. Anyone have experience with these? I'm guessing the ones with the heat sink last longer. There are different LED combinations/counts. I could sit down and figure it all out seeing if people have experience thoughts about these. I cant...

    Skip the banjo in custom break lines?

    I need to get some custom brake lines soon. I have picked spiegler as the vendor. I was thinking since I'm running mono blocks in both builds why not skip the banjo on the caliphs end and directly screw into the cable to the caliper. I'm not going to lose much cable directing that way. Just...

    Anyone have experience with Super B carbs?

    I have one that's pretty tricked out but I'm a bit lost to understand some of these tricks. First it has 3 Thunder jets. 125 135 145 jets respectively. Then it has non original jet like a air jet in the side. I think there is an 80 in that. Then it has a fuel outlet on the side. Originally...

    KBS Cycle Tank Repair Kit - Warning & Better ways.

    So my GPZ tank was rusting, enough to clog the fuel filter one day. Previously I used electrolysis which lasted about 1.5 years. So I decided to take it to the next step. A local hot rod shop had nothing but praise to say about the KBS Cycle Tank Repair Kit. KBS was once some people from POR...

    I almost shat myself. I was reading a magazine while traveling and it blew my mind to see the new cb for 12k! Does that come with 5 years of a perfect girlfriend with blow jobs on command? The bike isn't even impressive in any way I could think of. Needless to say I do think feel bad...

    Recommend oil cooler for air cooled Hi performance motor?

    I have been looking for a decent oil cooler for my supercharged kz1075. I have a lock heart on it now but it's too small. I look at the ones on eBay and they are with too wide 13" or not quite the right dimensions, or too cheap looking (Chinese specials). I'm also a fan of the curved oil...

    Anyone ride or have exposure to a Yammagamma?

    For the curious readers you basically take an rg250, swap out out the engine with a yamaha lc 350 or ypvs 350. Reason why they made these was the 250 gamma was a better handler and lighter bike by 60+ lbs, aluminum frame but the engine lacked, the yamaha had the engine but a much heavier of a...

    Mount sport bike mono-shock upside down?

    I have a 07 (iirc) triumph speed triple mono-shock that has a remote reservoir ala rubber line and side banjo. Can it be mounted upside down (at a 45 degree upside down angle vs 45 degree right side up)? I have seen other mono-shocks mounted upside down on custom builds but read mixed responses...

    Honda Ascot vt500 any good?

    I'm thinking of making a tracker for the girlfriend. It will need to do some light Hi way traveling. Like hour trips but mostly city driving. I heard they are rock solid a bit washy in the suspension but really easy to drive. I'm looking at an 84. Apparently it's the same motor as the v twin...

    So what's the deal with the chunky dual sport tires on cafe/trackers builds?

    As seen on a lot of builds on popular bike blogs, you seen these fantastic creations with modern suspension and they add these dual sport variety tires. Something like the dunlop D616, scorpion S/T, etc, etc. Granted some are tracker builds, but how many of these trackers really see the dirt...
